This thread is intended as a tool to identify your bike model and find related info quickly

Please check the threads listed below with the individual bike models before starting a new thread with the same subject!


The Suzuki DR & DRZ models are listed smallest engine displacement first and then older models first
I will try and link all threads with good model specific content on the Suzuki DR child board from here. Please let me know if you find a thread which should be linked. I am still busy with this.

If you think a thread has disappeared: Don't stress! Check the listing below. It has been merged into another thread with the same or very similar subject

Please do NOT start a discussion here about this thread!!! (Feel free to start a new thread)
You are welcome to give me details about the models, links etc, remind me of models I forgot or deemed unworthy :biggrin: but I may delete or move replies to other threads to keep this thread uncluttered.
Feel free to supply any additional info and please let me know if any links are broken or if I'm just plain wrong.

DR200 / Djebel 200 / DR200SE
DR200

Build from 1985 until 1995 (first edition, kick start),

replaced by the SE and Djebel 200 (both electric start) in 1996.
Djebel 200

The SE

Recent DR200SE (from 200x?) were imported as Agri versions with steel rims and an oil cooler.

DR250Z; DR250 & DR250S
1982-1995. I don't have a lot of info on these bikes. OHC four valve.
An early "Z" with drum brakes. Yes I know it says "S" on the side covers. Don't ask me ???


This one is a 1991 SH model (?), the only one which came with upside down forks.


This picture shows the later DR250S with conventional forks.


Some early 1990's models also came with a complex "on the fly" suspension height adjustment system.
The DR350 was very similar to the late DR250. You can consider them as different engine versions of the same bike model.


DR250RS; DRZ250; Djebel 250XC
All with the same DOHC four valve engines.
The RS was made in 1995-1999.


The DjebelXC


and the DRZ250 were released in 1999 (?)


Watty's famous DOHC 250 thread


DR350

The Dr350 was a larger engine displacement version of the DR250S and both the 250 and 350 were produced parallel in the early 1990's. Early S and R models 1990 - 1993 have kick start. From 1994 the electric start DR350SE replaced the S. All DR350's discontinued at the end of 1999.


DRZ400

Replaced the 350's from 2000 on. Street legal S; Enduro E and Supermoto SM models.

DR650

The first edition was made from 1990 until 1995 and came in four versions:

R: no fairing, kick start
RE: no fairing, e -start


RS: fairing, kick start
RSE: fairing, e-start

Suzuki XF650 Freewind

The Freewind is related to the DR650SE using a very similar engine. It uses a twin (intake) port head with twin carbs as opposed to the DR650SE's single port single carb setup.
With more road & touring aim then the DR it targeted the same market as the BMW F650Funduro. IMHO it was actually a little bit better than the BMW at everything but still could not match the BMW's commercial success.


DR750 & DR800
The 750:

General DR Big Q&A
a DR Big thread
Merged DR BIG parts thread
'nother DR Big thread
DR BIG carbs
and
DR Big  fuel consumption
DR Big 750 engine rebuild

Due to similarities between the 750 and 800 and the bikes being relatively scarce in South Africa I will for now only maintain a combined DR BIG index covering both the 750 and 800.

And the 800:

Thanx lecap.
Interesting.  Just thought of the DR600, I think 1985 or 1986, model.  Jislaaik, I drooled over that bike the first time I saw it.  Wonder if still available and would like more info of them.  Had a brochure of one when they came out.  Must still be somewhere, but cannot find same.  Saw one the other day at a bike shop in Cape Town, a white one, but badly neglected.
Anyway, very nice threat, liked to read about all the bikes.  But I must say, I still like the DR600 the most.  Would like to own one.  :drif:
