a few accessory shops keep, I have not battled for sprockets.. FT startline, etc

We've checked the big shops. No luck.

Should be same as DR650?

The catalogue does not show it to be compatible.

you can try wemoto

http://www.wemoto.com/bikes/suzuki/dr_750_sj_big__chassis:_sr41a-100001_-/88/

i have bought from them numerous times - orders are always quick and without hassles

once had stuff delivered in under 10 days from the UK

shipping is a little expensive with the weak rand - that is why i always double up on other stuff to make it worth while (filters, plugs, etc etc)

Fitted a 45 rear sprocket (-3) and must say the bike pulls nice and smooth, cruises nicely at 4500revs and still nippy enough in traffic, without feeling like its laboring.

I want to fit progressive front springs on my bike. Denver at Bling King says Wilbers only stock for the '89-'90 model SR41B.

My bike is an '88 model SR41A. As far as I'm aware the only change from '88 to '89 was the rear disc brakes.

So will those springs fit my '88 model ?

I put Wilbers progressive front springs in my DR650 and didn't like them that much. It was too harsh and felt like a motocross bike up front. My 690 is a lot more plush than the DR was! So I would consider a linear spring with the proper spring rate if available. Just my 2c worth :thumleft:

I think one must also consider the weight of the bike and I found the 180kg + bikes do better with the progressives than the lighter singles. Does make the latter more springy, while the heavier bikes 'sit' better on the suspension.

I need to get parts for my carbs.   Needle and seats as well as O rings.  I have a flooding problem.  Any suggestions as to where I can go.  Last time  I checked agents could get parts but we're very expensive
