Yep the exhaust is on the list too. Although the sound is perfect so I'm going to see what I can do to make it look better and also mount it at the right angle.

I had issues with my starter and had to create a miracle to sort it out. The brakes were also not good at all. The front suspension could have been better. But as a whole I loved the bike. I did a complete rebuild of it and went back to standard size piston with new cams rockers etc. Parts were very expensive. It came out nice but there are always small issues that come up.

I think the one you got used to be my brother in laws one? Did you buy it in PE?

Always wondered why they didn't continue with the theme of these bikes. Like so many others they should have continued with the concept.

I bought it in St Francis but before that it was in PE owned by Ryan Moss who had it for about 2 years. Who is your brother in law?

Ok I know Barton and chatted to him before I bought it. He said he doesn't think it's his old bike but he hasn't seen it yet.

I'm considering a DR750

  http://www.gumtree.co.za/a-motorcycles-scooters/carletonville/1987-suzuki-dr750/1001092699420910032190709

Does any one perhap recognise her

The low milage vs age is almost too good to be true , I dont feel like riding from PE to go the view the bike to find out is a lemon
Ride it like you stole it !

What other info did the owner give? How long has he had it and who did he buy it from? Would be nice if that mileage is genuine but that seems very low and going to be almost impossible to verify. Also it's not an 87 model. 88 I think was the first year and that is a later model with rear disc. Probably a 89.

I agree -  89
First year for rear disc
Last year for 750
Looks in really good original condition
