I had two DR 250's. Not Djebels although the one had a Djebel tank.

(http://i81.photobucket.com/albums/j220/mordies/DR250/DSCF7601.jpg)

It was sold to Major Tom and then to HHHusky. Great little bikes and really bulletproof, had no problems with either of them. Did a couple of long trips and they cope fine.

Just a bit of useless info.....


Walked into Suzuki South and enquired about parts.  The friendly parts salesman pulled out a catalogue and told me he can order any part that I want , just requires a deposit and he can deliver in 3 weeks.
Not bad I would say............especially since it is a grey import bike.


Now the best part....
I ask him for prices for the HUGE headlight and also the fueltanks.

Prices:

Just headlight(without frame around it) R 2500
Fueltank : R 8500

Terloops, Track&Tar Motorcycles (wat al verskeie Djebels ingevoer het) het ook 'n direkte lyn na Japan om parte self in te bring.  Sal 'n bietjie uitvind wat kos dit om nie deur Suzuki te werk nie.  Met die laaste invoer het hulle 'n volledige Djebel, net sonder 'n enjin, juis ingevoer om as parte bron te dien.

The standard Djebel 250 XC tank is 17 liters.


If I damage the tank, I would negotiate a cash settlement from the insurer and definitely go and buy a plastic tank. :thumleft:

Does anyone in South Africa actually have a Djebel 250 workshop manual?

I mean the real thing, not using DR350 or DRZ400 manuals as substitutes

:-\

I've researched the valve clearances for the Djebel XC a while ago and found 0.10 - 0.15 IN and 0.20 - 0.25 EX (makes sense).
Checked some Japanese Babelfish translated stuff and it says 0.08 - 0.13 IN and EX (does not really make sense)

:-\

What torque do the cylinder head bolts need? Should I do 40Nm as on the rather different DR350 or 46Nm as on the kind of but not quite similar DRZ400. Interpolate ??? Order a R1k workshop manual from Suzuki once they decide to be available again. (Last order was for a DR200SE, factory back order, six weeks :o )

After the Djebel XC received a lot of praise please note the following:
Older models (90's) seem to develop problems with valve stem seals hardening up leading to high oil consumption.
Exhaust valves seem to wear fast.
Timing chains wear quickly too, same as DRZ.
Both timing chain and valve problems might be related to excessively hard riding style. Remember, it's not a 650!

The Djebel 250 XC is a special edition of the DRZ250...................the only difference is the big fueltank and the headlight................so the specs of the DRZ250 would be the same as the Djebel 250 XC

I submitted the above requests to Thumper Talk (http://www.thumpertalk.com (http://www.thumpertalk.com)) and got the following answer:

My questions:
I need to be 100% clear on the valve clearances for the DRZ250. I have been informed 0.10 - 0.15 IN and 0.20 - 0.25 EX. Can anyone please confirm these settings.

Also, what torque do the cylinder head bolts need? Should I do 40Nm? Any info would be appreciated.

The answers
Those valve settings are correct in millimetres. Inch settings are intake .0039" to .0079", exhaust .0079" to .0118 ".

Cylinder head bolt torque per manual:
10mm bolts 25 NM (18 lb.ft.) initially, 42 NM (30.5 lb.ft.) final. The 6 mm bolts
10 NM (7.0 lb. ft.). Cylinder base nuts 10 NM (7.0 lb. ft.) Cylinder bolt also 10 NM. Hope this helps.

Means in the SI universe your Djebel must have valve clearances 0.10 - 0.15mm IN and 0.20 - 0.25mm EX and in the Imperial universe 0.10 - 0.20mm and 0.20 - 0.30mm

Fark!

Definitely a grey (second hand import) model, believed to be around a 2002 model according to the previous owner. Paid 10k.

Im not technical and have noticed the following compared to the previous posts:
   Its a. DR250S as mentioned by Sidetrack. What is difference between R and S or for that matter al of them?
   Height Control. Is this only to compensate for short to tall riders or is there other logic?
   Upside down fork (other technical name please?) which is not shown previously. Could this be a mod? And what is the logic again?
   What oil filler is in front of the petrol tank?
   According to previous owner it at least reaches 100km/h. Surely it should do more? Maybe in need of a major service and what mods would improve performance?
   Have I paid too much for the 21k kilometers done?


Havent done any other inspections yet except when taking him (its going to be a girls bike) home, I note the short gear ratios and maybe a bit sluggish. On other hand Im used to a 650.

   Have I paid too much for the 21k kilometres done?

Some info.  The previous owner is about 10 years of the mark!  The model shown above is a 1991 jobbie.  Here is a screen shot taken from a relevant page at www.suzukicycles.org (http://www.suzukicycles.org) (The "All Suzuki Motorcycles Ever Built" website):

(http://img37.imagefra.me/img/img37/2/1/8/estreux/f_hp7254puvpm_f96400a.jpg)

(http://www.suzukicycles.org/photos/suzuki-history/1991/1991_DR250S_450.jpg)

The main differences between the S and R models are:
- The R has a completely different and more modern motor and gear box (external oil cooler, a magnesium alloy head, and exhaust system among other).  The S delivered 18 kW while the  R output @ 22 kW.
- The S had a 5 speed box, while the R boost with a six speed box.  
- The odometers also differ in that the R has a modern digital one.

Here is a 1997 DR250R.  Note the obvious differences in front forks, the motor, the swing arm and exhaust system
(http://www.suzukicycles.org/photos/suzuki-history/1997/1997_DR250R_500.jpg)

-  As far as I can discover the last S model was made in 1993 and the first R scooters were introduced in 1996.

-  Height control is easier on the R as it has an two height positions at which the rear suspension can be set.
-  I have obtained the lighting speed of 126 km/h on my Djebel 250XC (remember basically the same bike, only different tank and headlight and cosmetics)
-  As to paying to much .... well all I can comment is that a clean Djebel with similar kilo's will set you back about R25k at present.  So, perhaps the R10k paid is not bad at all.  

Enjoy your new toy  :thumleft:

Your age estimate is a tad off. Your bike is more likely a 1990 model :o
This one: DR250S (http://www.motorcyclespecs.co.za/model/suzu/suzuki_dr250s%2090.htm)

Probably a 2002 second hand import. Which in beautiful SA makes it a 2002 model ::)

I don't know too much about the DR250.

It started off in 1982 with the DR250S and went with little change on until 1994 or 1995. 1990 saw the introduction of the DR250SE. In other Suzuki DR's the addition SE (second edition?) marked the change to SCEM cylinders (DR650SE and DR200SE both introduced in 1996). I think and stand to be corrected the DR250SE marked the introduction of the electric starter. ???

The 1990 DR250SE is the only one I could find pictiure references for the upside down forks. (Yes, they were OEM)

The further line of development spat out three mostly unrelated DR250 (to the early DR250S / SE) models in either 1995 or 1996: The DR250RS, DRZ250 and Djebel250XC. Only the DjebelXC is reasonably common in South Africa a but also only as a grey import.
The later DR250RS / DRZ250 / Djebel250XC have a completely different air / oil cooled DOHC engine similar in basic design to the water cooled DRZ400. See pics supplied by Watty.

The ride height adjustment was only available in the USD fork variant ??? and it was an optional extra ??? . These two statements are very vague based on what I remember about bikes I had not any interest in and diluted by all the beers of the last 20 years ;D And yes it's designed for shorties :D
As far as I remember the variable ride height was also only available in certain countries (Germany being one of them). The idea was to get girls into riding a DS bike. At that time all the tough cookies were used to the tall bikes already :D

The oil filler cap in front of your petrol tank is for your engine oil. It has the oil dipstick attached to it. If there's no oil in there your engine is kaputt! This system is commonly referred to as dry sump (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dry_sump)

The bike should cruise happily at about 100 and get up to 120 or so. One source on the web here (http://www.rideastride.com/suzuki-dr250s.html)claims 135km/h which I think is not realistic for a 16kW bike unless you ride down a mine shaft (or down Sir Lewry's Pass in a howling Southeaster which gives you similar results :D )

If the price is justified will depend entirely on the bikes condition. R10k is not much for a good & reliable bike but 20 years is quite something for a bike.

BTW, Watty, I don't think the specs given by www.suzukicycles.org (http://www.suzukicycles.org) for the 1991 DR250 are correct. The 1991 bike (see picture below in your reply #22) has the older 16kW / 22HP four valve OHC engine. Looks as if the later DOHC mill's specs have sneaked in there?

Not sure but I think the ride height adjustment mentioned in the OP is the fancy "flick a lever on the fly" system that allows to drop and pump up the suspension as you ride along.
Not the suspension with two different height settings as found on the DR650SE amongst others. These require about two hours and disassembly of shock spring & spring support & forks to change.

Some more info from the web re the different DR250's being discussed in this thread:

DR250S Standard
Single cam
4 Valve
Air cooled
Kick start

1990 to ? The DR250 is the Japanese home market version of the DR350 we had in the early to mid nineties. Most of them come with upside down forks, a few have electric start and the SH model has the Suzuki Height adjust system. This works by hydraulically preloading both the front and rear suspension. Turn the handlebar mounted knob to "L" and the bike drops two or three inches. Turn it to "H" and the the bike pumps itself back up as the suspension moves over the next few bumps.

DR250RS Standard
Twin cam
4 Valve
Air cooled
Electric start and kick

1996 to present The DR250RS is a complete new bike compared to the previous model. The twin cam motor is smooth, powerful and very free revving and the whole bike feels pleasantly light. The first models had a simple analogue speedo, but from 97 onwards the all singing all dancing digital unit from the Djebel was fitted. The seat height can be altered by means of the rear shock which has two lower mounting points. Changing from one to the other can be accomplished in about 15 minutes with the aid of several large spanners and a milk crate.

DR250XC (Djebel)
Twin cam
4 Valve
Air cooled
Electric start and kick

1996 to present the "Desert race"  rep version of the above bike, with wider seat, large tank and a dinner plate sized headlamp. The digital dash has a clock, stopwatch and twin tripmeters, programmable to count up or down.

DR250S first series from 1982 until 1989

It then saw a major facelift in 1990 externally as well as internally. Have not researched this thoroughly. Still a very similar 4 valve OHC air cooled but the 1990ff for example has double valve springs and a more modern styling.
1990 - 1993 DR250S kick start
1990 - 1995 DR250SE Kick & electric start.
Either the SE or both the S and SE were at some stages available with the affix H and the pump high & drop low suspension. I think it's only on models with USD front forks which were at least avauilable in 1990 and 1991

The OHC DR250SE was finally dropped at the end of the 1995 model year in favor of the DR250RS DOHC

We're getting there. The combined knowledge of this forum is enormous :D

Хороший день ILYA

Welcome to the Wilddogs - the best dual-sport adventure motorcycling forum in and South Africa!  :thumleft:

Sorry, but that manual in English is a problem and also in great demand here.  The best one can do is to get a manual for the DRZ250 from the USA (the Djebel and DRZ250 share about 90% the identical components).  On Thumper Talk (http://www.thumpertalk.com) go and look at these posting regarding similar requests for a manual http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=623789&highlight= (http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=623789&highlight=)

I visited your website at www.djebel-club.ru (http://www.djebel-club.ru) - some really nice and interesting stuff.   :thumleft: Obviously the Russian is a little bit of a problem  :P, but using AltaVista Babel Fish (provides online text and web page language translation) I was able to get arround!

It would be really interesting if you could perhaps post some more on WDs regarding your activities.  So, give us Ride Reports, lots of photos, ect.

Seeing that more and more WD members are acquiring these bikes, this thread is to function as the exchange of ideas and technical queries.  The following models are relevant, being basically just different versions of the same bike:

  • Suzuki Djebel 250XC
  • Suzuki DR 250R
  • Suzuki DRZ 250

Oh so that's how it is   :( ........ exclude the 200, just go ahead ......  >:D

Had a look at that bike last night but was disappointed. "Mooi van ver maar ver van mooi". I get nervous when frames have been resprayed and shocks redone by the neighbour so I never even bothered putting in an offer. Besides, it was too tall for SWAMBO anyway.

Just to let you guys know, if you need aftermarket exhausts made, here in Cambodia they produce them for 40 bucks. Any style. They are very nice, and not crazy loud and the quality seems to be great. I am in the US right now, but will be back in Cambodia on the 20th and will shoot pics over to anyone interested. They can copy and make anything over here dirt cheap so if you guys need parts let me know and I will see what I can do.

I am bringing back a ton of parts from the US that I couldnt find over there...oil and air filters, etc. But body parts, they are quite good at making.

Those tyres are Bridgestone BATTLE WING BW201/202. Desined for on-off dual purpose use. Specially-developed compound and tread pattern provides long life and high speed stability.   Info link at Bridgestone (http://mc.bridgestone.co.jp/en/products/battlewing/index.html)

Have taken me on all types of terrain as depicted below.  Only had problems in sand and mud (obviously they are not knobbies  :mwink:).  Very durable - in the photo above the mileage was already over 15 000 km and plenty of life remaining.  I have however changed to Dunlop D606 tyres which has a more aggressive off-road pattern.  Bottom line, if you are going to commute mostly on hard surfaces (tar), an excellent choice.

when just switching the ign. on, the lights don't come on. only ones you've started the bike. if you then switch the engine off with the KILL-switch, the ligths stay on.

The bike should cruise happily at about 100 and get up to 120 or so. One source on the web here (http://www.rideastride.com/suzuki-dr250s.html)claims 135km/h which I think is not realistic for a 16kW bike unless you ride down a mine shaft (or down Sir Lewry's Pass in a howling Southeaster which gives you similar results :D )

Hi there, new to the site but I own a couple Djebels and my 250 XC does 140 kph and I recon if I take the wing mirrors off and streamline myself on it I would hit 150, but 140 is definate, even accounting for a ten per cent tolerance on speedo acuracy thats still fast.

I love my Djebels, a 200 Se11 and a 250 XC.

My 200cc For Touring SE11 isn't registered yet, does anyone know if it's easy enough to identify the model year? I believe the vin numbers are diferent on the japanese own market versions so I don't know, anyone who does please let me know. Thanks Everyone.

I recently bought the Djebel that Runner advertised for my wife, Having said that I had a 250SE upside down version that was stolen in 05 together with a KLR. I cried more for the DR.

I read this thread through and from the info gained here, her Djebel is one of the first ones to come out. a Djebel XC RS model, oil cooler, 17 lt tank and old analogue speedo, bout 95 model, you can see it on the brake lines. But it cruises happily at 120 with her one, hitting 110km/h with me one, but goes like clappers. It used to be SideTrack's bike pic on the first page, modified by Husky to suit a vertically impaired person. :)
She enjoys it tremendously.

Don't know if your local Suzuki dealer would be able /or willing to help with a quote, but I know for a fact that you do get a rear rack for the Djebel 250 XC that can bolt on and is an OEM part.

Suzuki South in Capetown, have a catalogue of the bike and would be able to get the offical Suzuki part number and would be able to order it for you, but would of course also be able to quote you first.

I can take a pic of the rack on my bike, if you would be interested.......

Nee wat, het geen wrries daaroor nie.  Dit druk in elk geval styf teen die twee ram-werk "wings" - het selfs 'n stukkie

Yeb, daai stuk het ek aangesit om die ram/verfwerk te beskerm teen klippies wat opgegooi word.  Die belt materiaal word net gebruik waar die bashplate en die raam kontak maak.  Mens wil nie h dat die hitte van die motor/ratkas nie behoorlik weggelei word nie.

Nice thread ouens! Enjoying it very much, I have a dr350se 1996, do you okes think the djebel tank will fit mine seeing that there is a 250S on the thread with that tank and mine is basicly the same bike with a bigger barrel and piston?
Also that big ass light will look "die shit" op my pooratech engineerd adventure.

Sorry, just had a look at that 250 again and saw thats the later model, damn. Still looking for something bigger than my tiny ass 9L tank and I just dont like that cheap looking enduro tanks (IMS, Clark, ect......) and Im tired of refilling and carrying a 5L extra in the topbox which could be used for human refreshments. ARGHH!!! My search goes on. Oyes, Bought my bkie for R13500 in 2007 with 27000km on, I thought it was a good price. Its currently a 385cc with 10.5:1 compresion. Goes like a rocket through the six gears and saw 155kmh on the clock and 143kmh on the gps, but likes the 110-120 range the most.

Fitted with d606 front and back before going to Mitas E07140/80/18 back and E09 90/90/21 front thats on now. the 140 just clears and looks befonk!

These bikes are so bloody versatile and Id like to join you EC dogs on a trip to some good spots like baviaans or any other more tech stuff one day.

Enjoy!!!

Hello everybody!

I've been surfing around in the internet looking for some information about my new (old) Suzuki djebel 250 xc and landed on your site :).
I think it is model 95 or 96. But now i'm not so sure anymore if its the djebel or not, because it has the djebel tank but the dr headlight.
Can you tell me from the attached pictures which model it is?
I paid 3.100 US-$ here in Bolivia, or what would be about 21.000 rand. Has about 30k km, but it looks and feels in a very good condition (It's a Japan-import). I only had to change the bearings of the rear wheel and the gear-cable(?). Well, i will also have to change the front tyre, but i will wait until the rain season or my first serious tour.

Farking amazing bikes, 17lt tank and twincam head, all that you need! Small bikes is not really big in SA.

Your bike is the standard DRZ250 with the Djebel XC tank and seat fitted.

The "real" Djebel 250 XC come standard with a 20cm (huge) round headlight and the XC tank, and special handlebar covers.  Even the frontfender does not look standard.
Oh I nearly forgot................the Djebel also comes with the same digital clock as the DRZ 400.

The Djebel 250 XC is basically a special edition of the DRZ 250

No Operator, you're wrong. The first edition Djebels had analogue clocks and std headlights like a DRZ, there after they changed it to the round headlight.

Mine is the DR250RS.

The Djebel XC was first introduced in 1996.

My one is a 1996 model .............and it is equipped with the big headlight and digital speedo.

Hi guys!

My rear tire run flat because the valve ripped out of the tube...
Now im trying to find a new tube, but i don't exactly know wich are the specefications the tube has got to have.
I only know 4.60 - 18. Now, 18 is 18 inch diameter, but what is the 4.60?
Now i found on a local store a Pirelli tube, but on its packaging it says something of 3.60 and 4.10.
That ois too small isn't it? I can't find another one though... Will it do for my tire?

There are also specs like 110/90 or 120/80 (but not on my tire) ... what does that mean?  ???

Dis moontlik dat hy kan pas.

Gee my bietjie tyd dan meet ek vir jou. (heel logies net die binne/buite diameter, en dikte van die coil.)

Ek is besig om my vrou se DR 650 te verkoop. Die koper weeg 145 kg.

Het gister die shock na MP Custom Valve gestuur.

Hulle gaan die shock internals opgradeer, en 'n stywer/sterker veer insit.

Ek is veronderstel om die "ou" veer terug te kry.

Dalk kan jy hom gebruik om te eksperimenteer.

Dalk het Ganjora/Theotherguy nog syne oor van die DR wat hy vir onderdele gekoop het? Nader as ek! (Nelspruit)

Die beste is maar eintlik om die hele shock, met veer, na 'n guru soos MP of Hayward te stuur. Dit kos in die omgewing van R 2 000-00.

Hulle doen dan die internals en veer volgens jou gewig.

Die shock internals kan ook jou probleem wees!

Ek het my ander DR 650 se shock deur MP laat opgradeer, maar die ou veer behou. Die compression is nou "stywer" as die ander DR 650, en die Djebel. Laasgenoemde 2 is baie sag! Ek weeg 95 kgs, en nou baie tevrede met my eie DR.

Ek laat jou weet!

Die DR 650 veer (spring) se buite diameter is 83 mm, en die Djebel DR 250 (DRZ 250) is 78 mm. Die coil se diameter op altwee is 11 mm. Omdat die vere nog deel van die suspensie is, kan ek (is dit nie die moeite werd) om die 2 vere se lengtes te meet nie.

Sidetrack

After MP did his "magic" on the internals, i'm statisfied with the standard spring. I use the bike for DS/Technical riding, not enduro/mx. Its performs fine with my 93 kgs. :thumleft:

I am not familiar with the DRZ 400 spring specs. Can only assume that it will be stiffer...with the DRZ being more "sport" orientated than the DR!

Vra vir Dave (Ganjora/Theotherguy) of jy dalk een van die DR 650 vere kan leen, om te toets!

Pistonslap het 'n Procycle, wat glo effens stywer is as die stock DR 650. Hy wil R 485 he. Dalk kan jy eers leen om te toets. (Kyk of die verskil in diameter tussen DR 650/DR 250 gaan pla) Anders sal jy maar die gurus moet gaan sien, en die beursie oopmaak!

Ek het nog nie my DR 650 shock van MP terug ontvang nie. Anders kon jy my veer geleen het, om te toets. Net die afstand tussen ons, is 'n probleem.

Indien die DR 650 wel effens groter in diameter is, maar wel korrek "seat" aan die bo- en onder kant van die shock, kan jy dalk net 'n PVC sleeving aan die binnekant van die spring insit, om die spring te "centre". Jy sal dit seker moet gom, of dalk is daar so 'n grootte "heat shrink"?

Neem vir ons mates wanneer jy altwee die vere uit het, en "post" dit asb! :thumleft:

Ek is huidiglik besig om my vrou se Djebel in tip-top kondisie te kry.

Ek probeer om nie oorboord te gaan wat kostes betref nie.

Handle bars en luggage rack ge-sand blast, en powder coat.

Nuwe OEM lugfilter. Nuwe olie filter, en Bel Ray EXP 20W50 olie. Nuwe spark plug.

Bietjie gesukkel met 'n OEM voor sprocket. Suzuki South het vooraad gehad. R 470 later in my posbus in Nelspruit. Eina! :(

Vandag 'n nuwe EK x-ring ketting aangeskaf. My bikeshop reken die agter sprocket is nog 100% :thumleft: :biggrin:

Ek het ook die masiewe OEM handguards "getrim". Bo en onder groot gedeeltes met my grinder afgesny, en met 'n flapdisk afgewerk.
Lyk nogsteeds soos OEM, maar baie kleiner!

Het ook die agterwiel bearings en seels vervang.

Die agtershock is na MP Custom Valve gestuur. Bump stop moet vervang word, en die dieselfde tyd laat ek die binnegoed diens. Die link bearings is nog so goed as nuut! Behoort volgende week terug te wees.

Die carb het ook geflood, as gevolg van die needle & seat o-ring wat gelek het. Iemand het 'n proppie in die over flow pypie gedruk, as 'n tydelike maatreel! Eish! Dit het veroorsaak dat die lekkende brandstof die lugfilter deurdrenk het, en heel logies wou die fiets nie loop nie!

Ek het gelukkig die Djebel by "Fearless Frikkie" op die Forum, vir 'n goeie prys gekry, en dus bereid om 'n paar rand te spandeer! :thumleft:

Het al die plastics skoongewas, en met Chemico weer soos nuut laat lyk!

My vroutjie kan nie wag dat sy weer loop nie! Hopelik voor die MP Bash!

Sal met tyd poog om 'n paar fotos te post! :thumleft:

Nog nie tyd vir die fotos gehad nie.

Ek en vroulief was die afgelope 2 dae met die 990, van Nelspruit na Penge, via Lydenburg. Daar bietjie in die berge gery, toe Burgersfort, en gaan oornag in Middelburg. Volgende dag van die grondpaaie Oos van Loskopdam gaan aanvat. Wou toe Tonteldoos se rigting gaan, maar die  donderstorms en reen was net te erg. Toe rigting Belfast, tot ons weer 'n grondpad gekry het na Dullstroom. Daarna Lydenburg. Die grondpad van Lydenburg na Sudwala grotte was net te modderig vir ry met 'n pillion. Omgedraai, en via Schoemanskloof huis toe.

Die Djebel behoort reg vir die MP Bash te wees. Behoort hierdie week die shock te kry, en dan stadig aan aanmekaar te sit. Die Djebel gaan pret op die plaas self wees! Dis nou te se as vroulief my toelaat!

Hi Everyone

Thought I'd post a pic of my DR250.

Went for a short ride on Sunday and I am really, rrrreeeeeeaaaaaallllllllyyyyyyyyyyyy happy with how the bike goes  :ricky:

Its a 95 model with 57000km on it. Seems very neat, considering how old it is.

Gooooood Morning Doggie Darlings!

Some of you know that I bought Operator's Djebel 250 XC.  What a beaut!

Well, there is work to be done, but nothing major.
Wednesday the bike got a new battery, and it starts up like a dream.

It still's need to go through road worthy.

For that it needs a new hooter

Other stuff on the shopping list:
Standerd sprocket set
Rustremover
Primer
Paint
A few bolts and nuts
Plastic "pypies" for the carbs
Clamps for the bashplate
A hazzard plastic button\ switch
Then the rear wheel have a small smiley that we are going to get out
And the tank got an eina that we are going to fix

But all in due time!

For now only the hooter is important, and then the standard sprocket set.

Does anyone have the sprocket size maybe?  :angel12:

I'm looking forward to learn lots of new things.   :toothy9:

Ja se hy, mens kry male en female hoeters, die female is skree harder, hy't sommer vir my een van hulle afgehaal!  :lol8:

Daar is nie n DR 250 XC sprocket groote in die boek by Craigs nie, sal mens die DRZ 250 as verwysing gebruik? Watter bike se sproket sal reg wees?  ???

Het geantwoord op jou pm, gesels met Henk, Chopperpilot, hy sal kan help! My Djebel is gesteel, ek kan nie eers daar kyk nie. Die DRZ250 is dieselfde bike. Hy behoort mos net jou bestaande sprockets op te match? En dan kan jy kyk of een tand groter voor sal pas. Sal jou bietjie langer bene gee op die oop pad.

Louis, die bike is nou juis so gestel dat hy vinniger kan ry op die lang pad.  Ek verkies egter dat die fiets n bietjie meer trek op hom het. 

Ek onthou toe ek dit met die TW gedoen het was ek soooo teleurgesteld!

Dankie dat jy Henk verwys. 

Operator was so nice om by Suzuki South ook the oor van die sprocket grootes.

Geluk met die Djebel! Dis 'n awesome klein bike!

Fotos van my vrou s'n, is effens vorentoe in hierdie thread. (Sien hulle nie meer nie. Was met www.uploads.co.za gelaai?)

Ek sal vir jou die sprocket groottes nagaan.

Ek het toe ek die Djebel gekoop het by Suzuki South 'n nuwe OEM voor sprocket gekoop.

Kyk ook of jou lugfilter nog in goeie kondisie is. Ek het ook met Suzuki OEM vervang.

Die agterste hub se bearings en seels moet dalk ook vervang word.

Runner het vir my die base gasket vervang, die shims gedoen, asook die jetting.

Ek het die oorspronklike pyp laat oopmaak, en het nog die spaar een van Louis.

Meeste "oop" aftermarket pype gaan maar bietjie raas, en jy kan dalk torque inboet. Besluit maar self!

Geniet die Djebel!

Chopperpilot!

Ek dink daar mag dalk heelwat vrae na jou kant toe nog kom in die toekoms.  :)

Ek sal vreeslik graag die regte standaard sprocket groottes opsit. Het jy n "pre-loved" Djebel by Suzuki South gekoop?  Dis interesant om te sien wie se Djebels, van waar af kom.

Operator het vir my die lugfilter gewys. Dit lyk amper soos n groot badspons. Soos ek verstaan is dit die regte ding.  Op die oog het dit nog baie goed gelyk.

Hoe weet n mens dis tyd om die hub se bearings te vervang?
  is dit balletjie bearings of lyk dit bietjie anderste?


Ek het sommer gou vir Nismark ook gebbm om te vra waar sit die shims en die base gasket, hy gaan my die naweek wys.  

Wag! Wag! Hy se ons kan sommer die hele bike deurgaan!  ;D

Kan jy dalk so kortweg n deurgaan lysie gee asb?  Ek gaan kyk of ek self kan uitfigure waar als is voordat Nismark dan die bike saam met my deurgaan.

Die jetting sal ek ook graag later wil laat doen, verkieslik by Eddie van Rockgarden hier in die Kaap.

So jy't die baffle van jou exhaust uitgehaal?

Vragie, het die 250 ook n airbox waarvan daar gaaitjies oopgeboor kan word soos die XR 125? (Nie dat ek dit sal nie nie, ekstra stof kan so by die enjin inkom en die enjinleeftyd so verkort)

Die valves en shims behoort reg te wees aangesien die bike n bietjie TLC en nuwe ringe gekry het.  

Iewerste voor of na die langnaweek sal ek seker onder die wakende oog van Nismark die nuwe hoeter insit.  Ek sien nogals uit daarna!

ek hou liewerste die bike standaard en sorg dat ek geen torque verloor nie, dis "trek" wat die bike maak is te lekker!

Baie dankie vir jou reply Henk. Dit word waardeer!

Ek dink daar mag dalk heelwat vrae na jou kant toe nog kom in die toekoms.  :)Jy's welkom!

Ek sal vreeslik graag die regte standaard sprocket groottes opsit. Het jy n "pre-loved" Djebel by Suzuki South gekoop?  Dis interesant om te sien wie se Djebels, van waar af kom.My vrou se Djebel is by "Fearless Frikkie" (Forum lid) in die Kaap gekoop, en hy het dit by Tar & Track in PE gekoop. Dit was sy vrou se fiets. Sy het nou 'n DR 650 by LeCap gekoop. Ek moet nog die sprocket sizes vir jou kry. Hopelik more!

Operator het vir my die lugfilter gewys. Dit lyk amper soos n groot badspons. Soos ek verstaan is dit die regte ding.  Op die oog het dit nog baie goed gelyk.Was die filter met Prepsol, of die kannetjie produkte; nie met petrol nie. Spuit die blou en taai air filter skuim (Bel Ray) op.  Hou spons met plastieksak vas, wanneer jy dit doen. Druk spons klein binne in sak, om die muti te versprei, en jou hande skoon te hou!

Hoe weet n mens dis tyd om die hub se bearings te vervang?
  is dit balletjie bearings of lyk dit bietjie anderste?Dis die balletjie bearings. Haal die wiel uit, en draai die bearings met jou vinger in die rondte, terwyl hulle nog in die hub is. Hulle moet glad draai. Jy kan vir so R 200 die bearings en seels by jou plaaslike Bearing Man koop. Die voorstes behoort nog ok te wees.


Ek het sommer gou vir Nismark ook gebbm om te vra waar sit die shims en die base gasket, hy gaan my die naweek wys.  

Wag! Wag! Hy se ons kan sommer die hele bike deurgaan!  ;D

Die jetting sal ek ook graag later wil laat doen, verkieslik by Eddie van Rockgarden hier in die Kaap.

So jy't die baffle van jou exhaust uitgehaal?Jip! Ons het vir Juan hier in Witrivier. Ou cannister oopgesny. Binnegoed uitgehaal. Nuwe free flow baffle ingesit, en met veslglas gepak. Hy werk baie netjies. Lyk oorspronklik, en mooi blink gepolitoer!

Vragie, het die 250 ook n airbox waarvan daar gaaitjies oopgeboor kan word soos die XR 125? (Nie dat ek dit sal nie nie, ekstra stof kan so by die enjin inkom en die enjinleeftyd so verkort)[/b]Bo-op die airbox is die snorkel, wat jy kan verwyder. Ek het 'n tweede identiese gat langsaan gesny. Het tydelik die CDI uitgelig, om dit te doen. Onthou om eers die uitlaatpyp te doen, indien jy wil, asook die filter, airbox modifikasie, voor jy finaal jy die jetting laat doen. As jy kan sit die bike op 'n dyno. Ek hoor die Kaap manne praat met lof van Julian by Superbike Solutions.[/b]

Die valves en shims behoort reg te wees aangesien die bike n bietjie TLC en nuwe ringe gekry het.

Het vir jou gaan loer. Hando is reg met die 14/42 kombinasie. :thumleft:

Onthou net die Suzuki oorspronklike (OEM) voorsprocket gaan wel duurder wees, maar het die damping rubber in. :thumleft:

Net iets om verder in ag geneem. Ek het met die laaste 2 "klein" Suzukis waaraan ek gewerk het, elke keer die agter sprocket behou. ???

Op die Djebel was daar geen slytasie nie. Dalk omdat die vorige eienaar elke keer 'n blik chainlube op die ketting gespuit het. Ek het 'n halwe koppie chainlube by die voor sprocket casing uitgehaal. Die ketting en voorsprocket was egter kisboude. My plaaslike bike shop het die kondisie van die agter sprocket bevestig. Die ketting het skaars 'n merk op die OEM sprocket gelaat. Moeilik om te glo! :biggrin:

Op 'n DR 200 SE het ek dieselfde ervaar. Net voorsprocket en nuwe ketting opgesit. Ek koop die beste X-ring ketting. Betaal ongeveer R 1 000-00. :thumleft:

Op beide die 250 en 200 is daar 'n baie swak gehalte OEM DID ketting. (Ek sien op die Honda XR 650 L is dit dieselfde storie!) >:(

Vergelyk net die dikte van link plate, dan sal jy sien waarvan ek praat! :thumleft:

Ons wag vir 'n paar fotos van die Djebel, soos die fiets nou lyk!

Ja, ek hou ook van die pers rims en die forkboots wat so mooi oplyn!  Nou die dag toe se Stofdonkie ek sal mooi moet kyk waar ek die bike park, want so bike sal enige ou mos like!

Dis nou jammer!

Ek wens nog mense wil vir hulle die Djebeltjies aanskaf. As dit nie vir Chopperpilot, Louis en Operator was nie het ek sowaar met myself gepraat hier!

Het die naweek so bietjie van n bikeworkshop gehad.  Dit was awesome!

Het nuwe toeter toe opgesit, n rig-ding by die airbox vasgemaak, en ek het n bandomruil les gekry!  Die ou band is nou vervang met n Mitas Eo7.  

Dit ry baie lekker!

Gister het ons 204 km gaan ry, die eerste keer wat ek nou regtig kon voel hoe ry die 250.  Toe ons stop vir lunch toe kon ek net nie ophou met smile nie!

Nismark se ek het "baie mooi" gery
 ;D

Die saal is baie gemaklik.  Ek het nie eenkeer seerstert geraak nie

Hier is die "ring-ding"  Die klamp wat om die airbox pyp aan die carb vasmaak.  (gou vir Nismark ge bb en vir hom gevra wat noem mens dit.

Ons was na Brights toe om 'n skoefie / bolt vir dit te gaan koop.  Toe ons terugkom by die huis toe sien ons .... oepsie!  Die enetjie wat ons geneem het is  so bietjie kort.  So vir nou doen 'n plastiek kabeltjie die werk   :)

Omdat ek baie baie lanklaas iets kon doen op 'n bike moet Nismark my sowaar wys hoe mens die bolts losdraai

OEM parte (sprockets) is nie baie belangrik nie................nie op 'n 250 nie.  ;D

Jy kan maar aftermarket koop dit sal nie saak maak nie, die goed is almal maar dieselfde.


Jy sal nie glo hoe baie die krag verskil gaan wees met die standaard ration gearing nie.
Regtig, ek oordryf nie.

Die plek waar ons gelunch het, het 'n kamp langs die restaurant waar daar 'n klomp ooie en hul lammetjies was.

Jou Djebel lyk awesome! :thumleft:

My vrou sou ook graag die model met die pers rims wou gehad het! :(

So ver my kennis strek word hulle nie meer gemaak nie. Die Djebel is selfs 2de hands 'n beter koop as die nuwe 22hp Honda CRF 250 L!

Hou van jou windskerm! Watse maak is dit? Kan jy dalk 'n naby pic post?

Dankie Chopper!

Dis nogal hectic die 204 kms vir 'n eerste rit! Bly jy't dit geniet! :thumleft:

Die nabyskoot van die skerm sal waardeer word! Vroutjie ("Stofboxi") kan dan self besluit of sy iets groters wil he!

Ek dink die enigste fiets wat naby die Djebel kom is die Yamaha TTR 250. Sien hulle verkoop 2de hands vir R 36k! Ek dink nie die suspensie kan stel, soos die Djebel nie, en dan is daar die Djebel se 17 liter tenk, bagasierak ens. ens. ens. ens!

Wat 'n awesome fiets! Seker R 50k nuwe prys werd, indien jy die Djebel met die nuwe Honda CRF 250 L vergelyk. Wonder wat kos 'n Yamaha TTR 250 nuut, indien hulle nuut beskikbaar is?

Sover ek weet is die TTR's ge"discontinue"

Maar wat ek al van daardie fietsie gelees het, is dat hulle ook goeie engins het.

Maar die Djebles 250 XC is beter ne?  ;)

So af-en-toe gaan ons op "ver" trippies. Maar dan neem dit heel dag met die 125's.  Tyd het regtig gevlieg gister. 

Ek sal vanaand vir Stofboxi n foto van die skerm neem en more dv vir haar post. 

Volgende gaan ons glo die neck bearings  check en seker die sprockets opsit.  Nismark se ons gaan die fiets so van voor af deurwerk en kyk dat als reg is.

Het jy n maneul vir dienste of hoe maak jy?  Ek weet ons bike's gaan deur onder die DRZ 250 ook.

Ons kyk uit vir die skerm se kiekie! :thumleft:

Ten opsigte van die Manual. Ons het my vrou s'n gekoop om die tyd met "Watty" se afsterwe. Hy het glo 'n Manual gehad. Jy is korrek met die DRZ 250 s'n. Mens moet net die regte jaar s'n kry. Ek dink nie ouer as 2005 nie.

Ek het met "Watty" se afsterwe met "Big Al" gepraat oor die Manual. Dinge was maar (verstaanbaar) sensitief.

Ek dink sy dogter is "Miss Watty" op die Forum. Dalk kan ons by haar hoor, of met "Big Al" praat, as ek sy Forum naam reg het!(Sal bietjie kyk in my Inbox.)

Weet nie of jy dit dalk met hulle/haar wil opvolg nie?

E-bay is ook 'n opsie. Het op 'n tyd 'n DRZ 250 s'n daar opgespoor, maar ek is lugtig vir die E-bay ding! Ek is bereid om kostes te met jou te deel. Ek sal die fotostaat kopie vat!

My vrou s'n was by Runner in Pta vir 'n nuwe "base gasket", en die "shims". Dalk het hy die DRZ 400 se "specs" gebruik! Hom nie gevra nie!

Ek het jou kiekies gou gaan neem.  Sal dit more post. Hoop jy kan mooi sien, garage se beligting is nie so great nie.

Ek sal by Miss Watty en Big Al hoor. Dalk kan hulle die boek vir ons pos, ons betaal postage, rol af en stuur terug.

So hou hulle dan iets wat waardevol kan wees vir hulle as hul dit nog het.

Ek het voor ek die DR 250 gekoop het n DR 350 ook redelik sterk oorweeg. Op die DR 350 thread het die manne nogals redelik genoem dat hulle goed van E bay af kry. Dalk kan Berty of DJ ons so bietjie raad gee.

Operator het ook genoem dat hulle DRZ 400 parte kan neem met sekere goed.  Ek wonder....die persoon van wie Operator sy Djebel gekoop het in PE..... Sal hy nie dalk ook kan help nie? Het iemand dalk kontakbesonderhede van hom?

Ek het die DR 650 rakkies by Albert gekoop. Die plan is dat hy dit in Pta gaan aflewer, by 'n kollega, waar 'n ander kollega dit Nelspruit toe sal neem.

Ek behoort vir jou 'n geleentheid Hoedspruit toe te kan reel. Ken paar van die Lugmagmanne. Hulle kom shop gewoonlik in Nellies!

Die een pilot in Jhb het ook die Ambulans chopper kontrak hier in Nellies. Dalk is daar 'n geleentheid? Ek verkies opsie 1!

Ek sal bietjie jou foto posting op die proef stel! Dankie! :thumleft:

Ek het 'n DR 650 Suzuki. Google bietjie die '99 model. "Suzuki DR 650 Specifications". Click op site, en scroll dan op/af tot jy die spesifieke model vind. :biggrin:

Alles wat geel is, behalwe die bietjie op die tenk, is na blou verander. Het eers 'n AirAge pyp op gehad, nou 'n FMF. Het ook 'n PSP Racing laairakkie, en 'n "lecap" bashplate. Lank met die opgradering van die starter en starter torque limiter gesukkel.

Alhoewel dit 'n ouerige fiets is, is dit in puik kondisie, en 'n looker of note!

O ja, my vrou het eers 'n 2008 DR 650 gehad (swart/wit), maar dit nooit gery nie. Sy was bang vir die 650. Toe 'n wit DR 200 (2012 model) wat sy baie geniet het. ADA opleiding by Malibu, lisensie en 'n Mosambiek trippie op die 200 gedoen. Ek het toe besluit om haar die Djebel te koop. :thumleft:

Ek het 'n sagte plekkie vir Suzukis ontwikkel. Puik geboude fietse, met baie features. Was my jonger jare 'n Honda man gewees.

Goed opgepaste DR 350s is onbekombaar. Hierdie een blyk 'n ou man s'n te wees. Slegs 11 000 kms, en absoluut standaard. 2001 model. Het laasweek 'n nota gelos, maar geen reaksie gehad nie. Was vandag weer daar. Fiets was daar, maar nie die eienaar nie. Het wel nommer gekry. Sal mooi by die versameling lyk! Weet egter nie of hy sal verkoop nie.

Die 250 maak sy krag teen effens meer revolusies. Enjin meer soos die DRZ 400, waar die 350 soos die DR 650 is. :thumleft:

Ek stem saam die Djebel, en veral joune, is een van die mooiste fietse beskikbaar! :biggrin:

Die DR 250 Djebel is 'n baie beter fiets as die nuwe Honda CRF 250 L. :thumleft:

30 hp teenoor 22 hp!  :o

Weeg glo baie meer as die Djebel ook. 118 kgs (droog) teenoor glo 147 kgs (nat). Ek dink die tenkie van die Honda vat nie eers 8 liter nie!

Dalk net die Honda se voorvurke wat beter is? Dalk? ???

Daar is 'n baie lang lys van ekstras wat die Djebel het, wat jy vir die Honda moet koop. 'n Lowering link byvoorbeeld, self ingevoer vir die Honda, kos so R 1 800-00! Die Suzi kan laer gemaak word. So ontwerp. 2 verstellings vir die onderste shock mount! Awesome! :thumleft:

Selfde storie met die XR 650 L. Jy gaan meer as R 10 000 spandeer om dit op DR 650 vlak te kry. Bitter min WDs ken al die verskille tussen die 2 bikes! ???

Hy ry seker nie die k@k uit die fiets nie! ???

Dan is daar ander DR 350s, en een wat ek amper gekoop het, wat 'n wrak was, met baie minder kilos! >:(

Dankie Nismark! :thumleft:

Het hulle in goeie kondisie gekoop...baie ure...en moolas verder gespandeer! ;)

Ek geniet my bike ry, maar spandeer ook ure om hulle in puik kondisie te kry! (Stokperdjie!) ;D

Huidiglik is niks te koop nie. :( Sorry!

Ek is egter agter 'n 2001 DR 350 aan. Die eienaar wil (nog) nie verkoop nie. Met net 11 000 kms op die klok, en absouluut standaard, kan ek haar nie laat gaan nie.

As dinge verander, hou ek jou in gedagte! :thumleft:

Die Djebel het ek by 'n WD in die Kaap gekoop. Ook 'n vroulike eienaar. (Dis nou my vrou se fiets.) Voor dit het die fietsie in Japan geloop! Sy is in 'n werklike puik kondisie! ;D

Daai 650 gaan oor baklei word eendag!  Ek is tweede op die lys vir daai 650! (alhoewel my 250 my seker vir jare nog dolgelukkig sal maak)

Jinne Chopper, jou en Stofboxi se fietse lyk pragtig!  Baie TLC is daar in, dis verseker!

Ek het 'n vraag:

Ek het Sondag vir ongeveer 'n  uur  sirkels en cone riding in 1st rat, baie stadig, met baie clutch feathering in, gedoen. 

Kan dit sleg vir die bike wees?  Ek het so af en toe vir so 30 sekondes gestop om te rus.  En dan die bike afgesit vir daardie tydjie.  Ek wil baie graag meer dit doen en oefen, want ek sukkel so bietjie met die 250 om draaie.  Bly voel asof die fiets onder my gaan uitgly!

Ek wil nog steeds egter weet:  kan daai uur lange se stadig ry in eerste terwyl ek cone riding doen en die clutch heeltyd feather die bike dalk seermaak?  :angel1:

Jy sal dadelik voel as hy anders begin maak? Hom ruik? Ek dink nie so nie, die clutch hardloop mos in olie.

Daai bike tyres hardloop jy 1.8 voor en agter. Voor dalk 2.0 as jy wil!

Onthou net dat n nuwe band ook net eers moet settle. Daai silicone tipe nonsence op hom moet net afloop ook, dan sal hy beter grip, maar so n klein scooter hoef jy nie harde bande te hardloop nie, hy is lig en die band gaan jare hou!

Die oefen met die clutch sal slegs 'n minimale impak op die clutch he, omdat die lading amper niks is nie! As jy in diep sand hom gly is dit 'n ander stprie! Soos LX gese het dit loop in olie, wat ek reken die clutch spaar, en jy gaan hom slegs ruik indien jy hom ernstig brand. Die oil cooler help ook effens om dinge koeler te hou! Nog 'n Suzuki bonus! :biggrin:

Terwyl ek my vrou, toe nog met haar DR 200, in Moz se dik sand gehelp, het 'n ander persoon my DR 650 gery, en my clutch gebrand. Interresant genoeg was dit net die buitenste "friction" plate wat op die metaal was! Die res nog bruikbaar.

Ek het alreeds die volledige Suzuki OEM stel gekoop. R 2 000-00. Daai olie vrot dan erg! Alles mooi met parrafien uitgewas! :thumleft:

Ek sien jy kan clutch plate onder die "Tusk" brand ook koop. So moenie te veel worry nie!

Ten opsigte van jou ryery: Stem saam met LX tov die banddruk. Dan moet jy ook onthou die Djebel is baie hoer (die Alt funksie werk nie by my nie!) as die XR 125 L, en ek reken jy sit meer bo-op die Djebel as met die XR 125 L.

Dalk is jou suspensie te styf gestel? Ooit verander na Operator die fiets gehad het? Onthou ook jy kan die hoogte van die fiets verstel. 2 gaatjies op die onderste shock mount, vir die link bout. Weet nie of die internals van die voorvurke verander kan word soos op die DR 650 nie, maar die vurke kan effens in die tripple clamps gesak word.

Hoe lank is jy Dusty Rusty?

Vir my het die DR 200 ook baie makliker rondgegooi teen lae spoed as die Djebel. Die vering van die Djebel is egter meer in die DRZ 400/DR 650 se klas. Jy sal dit agterkom wanneer jy die grondpaaie aanpak! :thumleft:

Onthou net dat Superfoxi in jul omgewing is. Dalk met tyd dit oorweeg om die voor en agter suspensie by hom te diens, en korrek op te stel. Dit gaan 'n paar rand kos, maar dis die moeite werd! ;)


My vrou se ook die smaller tenk van due DR 200, het haar ook meer vertroue, as die wyer 17 liter tenk van due Djebel gegee!

Van my lenge is ek nou nie seker nie. Seker so 1,7 daar rond? As ek sit en ek steek my voete uit dan tone ek  die grond, maar dis darm ook nie tippie toe nie. :)
 

Die Djebel is nog steeds op Operator se hoogte gestel.  Dalk moet ons ondersoek instel en die outjie so bietjie laat sak. 

Die bike voel vir my amper so groot soos Nismark se XT 660 (hy het my so rukkie gespoil en my met sy bike laat ry, terwyl hy dan met die 125 gery het), die enigste verskil is die 250 is genadiglik ligter. So terloop, as die 2 bikes langs mekaar staan is lyk hulle albei ewe groot en hoog. 

Op grondpad is ek fine, dan ry ek ok, maar dis sodra ek n draai moet vat, (veral op teer as ek sit) dan weet ek nie hoe om die fiets te hanteer nie, want die fiets voel te groot!
 As ek op grond staan en n draai vat dan is ek glad nie bang dat die bike onder my gaan uitgly nie.

Gewoonlik geniet ek draaie met die 125.  Ek raak vies as die karre kruip in my gunsteling draai in die middae oppad huis toe.  Eendag het ek tot my eie verbasing n footpeg gekrap op die teer. Natuurlik was daar een n gilletjie...en toe n groot gelag!

Gooooood Morning!

Right ons vorder!

Saterdag het ons die standaard grootte sprockets en 'n kettang toe by Craigs gaan bestel.  Morne het gese nee, ons moet die bike bring hy wil self seker maak oor die grootte.  Toe't hy geloer en tot gemeet om doodseker te maak hy kry die regte grote.  Ek sal dit seker in die week by hom gaan haal en dan 'n sprocket en kettang les by skarrebol kry.  ;)

Nismark het Saterdag laat middag die wiele vir my gecheck en toe het hy en Hanno die bike vir my laat sak.  Daar agter by die wishbones.  En toe klim ek op daai fiets.... en toe gaan ons vir 'n sunsetspin!  Maggies maar dit was lekker!  Ek was sommer dadelik meer gemaklik op die fiets om die draaie. 

Het net gesukkel om te sien toe ons in die donkerte terugry huis toe, (dis nie net oor die oranje skerm nie, ek is soos 'n mol in die aand) maar die manne het so gery dat ek in hulle lig kon sien.

Die bike sweet so bietjie olie maar dit lyk nie asof dit 'n trainsmash is nie

Chopperpilot, Morne se ons moet op Amazon gaan kyk of ons nie die eboek weergawe in die hande kan kry van die maneul nie.  Ek sal later gaan loer of daar hoop is vir ons.

Was die afgelope naweek bietjie uitstedig. Het saam met vriende op 'n wildsplaas gaan kuier. Het vir eerste keer in 'n lang tyd met die DR 650 off-road gery. Moes eers bietjie my selfvertroue herwin, en toe is dit vet pret. Saterdag het dit erg gereen, en meeste van die plaas is rooigrond. Toe kuier ons maar onder die lapa. Sondag was dit nog glad, en baie pret. Ook met die 4 X 4 roete teen die berg uitgery. Lows Creek omgewing is waar die plaas is. Iets wat by my opgekom het is 'n WD Bash vir kleiner fietse. Niks bo 650cc nie. Ek reken baie WD lede voel geintimideer om saam die ou honde te ry! Daar is soveel ry opsies in die omgewing. Die Kruger Wildtuin grensdraad is ook net 'n klipgooi van die plaas! Sal bietjie moet slaap hieroor! :thumleft:

Sal bly wees indien LX vir ons kan help om vir die manual te loer! :thumleft:

Het jy onthou om die voorvurke ook effens te laat sak? Stofboxi se Djebel is voor en agter gesak, en die vorige eienaar het die sitplekspons effens uitgesny, en toe weer die seat cover oorgetrek. Stofboxi is 1.67m. Haar voete is dan amper plat. Maak ook seker dat jou pre-load (styfheid) van die veer op die agtershock nie te styf is nie. As ons die manual het sal die afstand vir die veer (sag, standaard en hard) daar te vinde wees. ;)

Stofboxi se Djebel het by die base gasket gesweet/gelek. Alle ouer Suzukis het 'n papier base gasket gehad, wat met tyd olie lek. Die vervanging gasket het so 'n gedeelte met 'n rondte gaatjie wat voor uitsteek. Sal kyk of ek 'n foto kan opsit! :thumleft:

Dankie vir jou moeite met die manual sover! :thumleft:

Naand se!

Die week het verby gezoep!

Nismark en Hanno het Saterdag toe die nuwe sprockets en kettang opgesit. (Ek het geskrop in die huis)

 Morne van Graigs was so sweet, hy't sommer 2 soorte voorsprockets bestel en hy't toe gese as die DRZ 250 nie pas nie dan kom ruil ek dit om vir die DR sin (of so iets) Ta-daaa! En dit pas perfek.

Nismark het die bike toe sommer daarna vir n spin geneem, en hy se die bike ry NOU baie lekker. Ek sal sekerlik more uitvind.

Ek gaan bietjie check watter base gasket die 96' model het.  Ek is nogals nuuskierig daaroor.

Dalk, dalk, dalk kom daar n regte RR binnekort, afhangende van waar ons oralste die naweek ronrdrits!

O ja!

Ons gaan die Djebeltjie so bietjie oppimp! 

As iemand weet waar mens pers handelbargrips kan koop laat ASB weet!

Hello almal. Ek is nuut op die forum nadat ek 'n tydjie ge-"lurk" het. Ek het 'n 1996 (dink ek) DR250RS. Dis sommer my speelding op die plaas en ek geniet hom verskriklik baie, hy vreet net als op wat jy na sy kant toe gooi :biggrin:

Ek het onlangs begin werk en kon uiteindelik 'n paar goed op hom laat regmaak:

Timing chain vervang
Carbs laat skoonmaak en stel
valve clearance laat check
en sommer volledige diens, alhoewel ek hom altyd sommer self gediens het. Die werk is by Boland bikes gedoen

Verder het ek handlebar vervang (iemand anders het 'n ligte val met hom gehad :-\)
Nuwe sprockets en ketting. Ek gebruik n redelike groot agtersprocket (dink dis 48 tand), anders is idle spoed in eerste te vinnig vir as jy rerig rowwe terrein aanvat.

En dan die lekkerste van alles, 'n Bosson slip-on!

Al die werk saam met die pyp het dit sommer 'n ander fiets gemaak. Hy loop flippen lekker en klink flippen lekker.

Ek is mal oor die fiets en ry hom al amper 9 jaar, so dis vir my lekker om te sien dat so baie ander mense die selle oor hulle DR 250's voel!!

Toe ek net myne gekry het het ons so een of twee Sondae daarna, 'n draaitjie gaan ry.  Meer as 200 km in Riebeek Kasteel se omgewing en Bellville chop-chop.  (dink dit was dalk 260? kan nie onthou nie) Iewerste gaan ons ook Sutherland toe ry, dit sal my verste en eerste regtige trip met die Djebel wees en ek sien vreeslik uit daarna!


So btw:  die standaard sprockets is nou weer op.  Die outjie trek nou sommer baie lekker!  Ek het verlede naweek so 112 km/h gery en ek was glad nie! 

Bike is darm nou deur padwaardigheid en ek dink Nismark gaan vandag haar op my naam sit.   

Ek dink ons sal die handlebars vir my moet lig, want die armspiere raak bietjie lam en mwah ry mos heeltyd meerkat sodra sy op die grond kom!

Doen 'n search onder sheepshin, dalk raak jy iets wys.

My huismaat het nogals n oulike ding ook gedoen. Jy weet mos mens kry die klein kamp opblaas kussings? (Die goed is sommer lekker cheap, by Outdoor Wearhouse of so) nou hy het dit so halfpad opgeblaas en dit op sy saal vasgemaak.

Ek het eenkeer op sy bike gaan sit. Wow! Gemaklik se moses. Dalk moet jy dit probeer?

Right!

Watse olie gebruik ek?  (net die beste is goed genoeg vir my fiets  :) )

Hoeveel olie het sy nodig?

Het iemand die valve clearance syfers.  Sy is 'n 1996 model.

Verder kan ek nie kla nie, die bike gee my nog steeds butterflies as ek haar start. 

Gotta go!

Hou aan olie ingooi totdat die olievenstertjie half vol olie is.  ;D

Ek was die afgelope week uitstedig, en sonder internet. (Ou Transkei...vir werk.)

Ten opsigte van die olie. Ek gebruik Bel Ray EXP 20W50, semi-sinteties, in al my enkel silinder quads/fietse. Dit kos omtrent  R 100-00 vir 'n liter. Ek ruil ook olie baie meer gereeld as wat die vervaardiger aanbeveel. So elke 3 000 kms.

Die 50 viskositeit spesifikasie is vir my belangrik vir ons land. Vir die KTMs gaan dit op na 'n 60, vir die warmer enjin temperature. (Dis 'n dikker olie, vir "performance" enjins. Motorex olie.)

Die belangrikste spesifikasie van enige olie is egter dat dit 'n JASO spesifikasie moet wees, wat geen bymiddels bevat wat die "wet clutch" kan laat gly nie. Dit staan erens op die houer. (Dit is ook seker so dat daar ander olies is, wat nie JASO gespec is nie, en ook nie jou clutch gaan beskadig nie. Maar hoe gaan jy weet?)

Ten opsigte van die olievlak. Verseker net dat jou fiets perfek regop deur iemand gehou word, wanneer jy die olievlak nagaan. Met 'n bietjie oefening kan jy langs die fiets hurk, dit balanseer, en die olievlak nagaan. Hou net die systaander uit, sodat jy haar weer na links kan laat le. :thumleft:

Die agente hier het al Bel-Ray EXP 20W50 in my vorige 990 gegooi. Geen kort termyn probleem nie.

Met die 990R bly ek by wat die vervaardiger aanbeveel. Motorex 10W60. Olie is goedkoper as 'n engine rebuild! :thumleft:

Die mechanic (sal maar sy naam nie hier noem nie) het vir my ges dat die valve clearances
alles gecheck is en dat dit reg is.
Toe die enjin oorgedoen was, was die valves ook vervang, so dit is alles veronderstel om
100% reg te wees.  :-\

Pap wiel goeters ja.   

Wat jy ook kan saamneem is cable ties en duck tape.  Ek het 'n ou XR 200 gehad wat die voorliefde gehad het om sy exhaust elke dan en wan te verloor.  Op 'n ride het dit eenkeer gebeur en toe het ons dit met 'n stuk draad vasgemaak.  Dit het nie baie lank gehou nie.  En toe probeer ons cable tie en ek moet se, dit het vir baie baie lank gehou! 

Sterkte met die beplanning en ek hoop jy onthou alles!

Baie geluk met die aankoop! Dis voorwaar 'n fonds! :thumleft:

Lyk redelik identies aan Gizmo. Effens ander tenk decals? Makeer Gizmo se lig en tenk iets? ???

Sal graag Stofboxi se rims en tenk wou ruil, vir iets meer vroliks, soos op "Bodyparts"! :pot:

Hallo Chopper! 

Jong Gizmo se tenk het n eina op, maar dis nie so ernstig nie.  Die rede hoekom ons so gespring het vir die fiets is omdat ALLES so duur is van hulle!  Net die tenks kos 8000 van die dealership en die lig is net so 'n kortkop agter.

Nismark het so rukkie terug begin dreig dat hy Gizmo wil opdollie en dan se ek net "neeeeeeee! Waarop moet ek dan naweke ry!?"  En toe het ek nogals by myself gedink as ons nog n XC in die hande kan kry kan ons mos frames powdercoat op ons tyd terwyl ons nog kan ry naweke ook. :)   

Die eerste ding wat ons gaan doen: Gismo gaan nou 'n pers agterrakkie kry! (Hy is mos n meisiekind se bike afterall)

Daaaaaarlings!  Bodyparts en Gizmo is te koop. 

(Apart of saam)

Die rede: ek het my eerste 650 bike in die oog. Die XC's sal vir my altyd die mooiste mooiste fiets bly maar as ek nog die land wil deurtoer sal ek 'n groter motorfiets moet aanskaf. 

Loer op die selling thread, Nismark het dit daar opgesit. 

Geniet julle ysterperdtjies!

Morning all.

It looks like my 250 Djebel has a lazy alternator.  The battery doesn't last more than a month before it's kinda flat.  Then if I charge it with a charger, it's good to go again for a couple of weeks.

Any idea where and how I can get it checked out somewhere in JHB (West Rand preferably)?

Thanx!

Meet die Volts met 'n multimeter by die battery, wanneer die fiets loop. Ek is nie 'n auto electrician nie, maar my ander Suzukis lees net so oor 14V. Die een selfs 15V. ;)

As hierdie lesing net bo 12V is, is dit nie genoeg nie. :(

Op 'n DR 200 van my kollega het ons 'n ander voltage regulator gesit. Selfde simptome as joune, met 'n nuwe battery. :thumleft:

Ons het nooit jou fiets baie gery nie, en al my fietse word weekliks op laai gesit. Kan dalk 'n ou probleem wees. ???

I have revived a few rusted DR 200 tanks.

Maybe a good clean and epoxy coating will do the trick!

I'm in the market for a Suzuki Djebel 250XC.  

1.  Are there someone still importing these into SA?  
2.  Any for sale currently or in the near future?

Please email me at: adelbert.champeon@gmail.com

Thanks, A.  :thumleft:

The bike seems to be out of production. The fairly similar (same frame and engine) DR-Z 250 is still available overseas.

Thanks to the combined idiocy of our government and bike importers you can't register these bikes any more in SA since it does not comply with Euro4 standards.
Means no one imports them and no one will import then at any time in the future.

Our one and only hope currently lasts on the Aussies which apparently plan to follow suit and kick non Euro4 compliant bikes out of the market. This MIGHT push the manufacturers to upgrade some older models to comply. It's relatively easy with liquid cooled designs like the DR-Z400 and KLR650, more tricky if possible at all with air  / air oil cooled designs like the DR650SE and DR-Z 250 Djebel250XC.

The Djebel250XC afaik never was sold by Suzuki SA but was only available as a parallel import. There are not too many around. Most people who have one are very happy and thus even fewer are offered for sale.

Hi,
has anyone got a wiring diagram for a 250 Djebel that shows 2 diodes? The DRZ250 shows one. This is a Japanese market Djebel, 2001. I have a spare diode on a DR350 but I'd like to know which wiring it's involved in. It's close to the starter and sidestand relay,
cheers

Hi

I've got the full service manual in digital format if you want.  Had a quick look through and it's got some wiring diagrams.  Not sure if it's exactly what you're looking for, but having the manual can only help.

If you're interested, PM me a dropbox link where I can upload it to for you.

Hi all,
thanks for advice etc.
The pickup coil was dead...replaced that and away she went, just like new...nearly. Maybe the sidestand switch is also defunct so I jumped the connection to that. The diode is the same as that on DR350s or lots of Suzukis.
All happy!

Mre Almal hier. Ek het 'n probleem met my DR250. Hy start redelik maklik, maar na 'n minuut se loop begin hy stotter en die exhaust raak bloedrooi. Valve clearance is reg, timing is reg. Ek vermoed hy loop te lean wat my by die carb uitbring. Dis dieselfde carb as die Djebel 250 XC (pumper carb). Enige raad sal waardeer word.

Haal die carb uitmekaar, en maak deeglik skoon.

Gaan jou jet sizes na.

Kyk of jou float level reg is.

As jy nie regkom nie, vat die fiets na LeCap/Jurgen in die Kaap.

As hy so lean raak, klink dit vir my na die engine carb rubber wat lek.
