MP CV was nog altyd redelik, ek het R1670 betaal vir net die oordoen van myne, en die Shop eienaar het maar R30 gemaak, nie eers sy behoorlike deel bygesit nie.

Ek is altyd net damn bang om die goed deur die Kool dissipel PK te stuur, as hy weg raak dan sit jou turf!!

Het ook maar daai vrees gehad! Af ondertoe maar 'n bietjie versekering bygesit!

Terug na my sal 'n gebedjie die trick moet doen! :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:

Ek is nog steeds op soek na 'n DRZ 250 workshop manual om met die fietsie te gebruik!

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.







I love my new bike  :biggrin:

Congrats with your acquisition!

They are awesome bikes! :thumleft:

I see yours has a Cowley pipe/cannister on. How loud is it? Is it a free flow? (In other words...can you stick a rod ithrough the cannister, from the outlet, to the connecting pipe, at the front of the cannister?

Not too loud  :biggrin: Sounds nice.

Thought I'd post on the changes I have made to my DR, so far  :biggrin:



Got myself a set of high bend Pro Taper bars, some Zeta handguards and a Polisport MMX headlight.
Fitted everything by myself  :biggrin:

Dankie LX! Hierdie een is seker een van die skoonstes, en meganies bestes "beskikbaar"! :thumleft:

Onder "General Technical" is daar inligting oor die Djebel gevra. Die fotos daar ook gepost! ;)

Skuld "Harleymonster" al lankal fotos op hierdie thread, en as ek reg kan onthou vir jou ook! Daarom hier ook gepost! ;D
