In Yougoslavia the Suzuki's had problems with the handling of their bikes, Sheene and Ferrari used two year old frames trying to solve their problems but this couldn't stop Roberts from winning the race before Ferrari, Uncini , Hartog and Van Dulmen. For talented Dutch racer Willem Zoet the Rijeka race was a great come back, he had been injured for a year and on his international return he scored a 12th place om his RG500VI , not bad after a year without racing , he would also show his talent by the Dutch 500 and 750cc championship.

The next race; the Dutch TT would be a Suzuki show again, for four rounds it was Hartog, Sheene & Ferrari. Ferrari would take the lead later on in the race and finished first before Sheene, Hartog , Van Dulmen, Uncini, Coulon, Middelburg and Roberts.
