I've had a Varadero before - enough power for me. Bloody fast...

I find the BIG much more to my liking - once it actually runs...

Have a good one. I'm off to bed - cold and I feel like I'm getting sick. Damn.

Interestingly enough My DR pretty much mimicks the power of the Tuono to about 4500rpm though DR is slower reving and dosnt have the fuel injection snap
DRs are not that Slow Really and perhaps DR has a touch more at 3000
so there not to shabby for real world power

What you think (actually the HP to width is about the same)

I think......the DR looks just fine


I think.....the back of the Aprillia looks like the lightcycle from "TRON"

Isn't it odd how the everyone else on the road seems to be running at 1/2 speed when you're on one of these. I'd loose my license within a week. That is gonna be a costly bit of rubber when replacement time comes around.

It looks like he's already sold everything he wanted to sell.

If I'm wrong on this, Big Bob, let us know.

ASO one step closer to murdering the DAKAR

For all you Dakar followers out there, the French just rolled a little bomb into the room (at the last minute as always)

KTM..just said:

KTM press release here:

http://www.ktm.com/KTM-News.223.0.ht...ash=ecd1127720

Maybe the ASO should just stick to pedal bikes


These guys are just so...............................French

Is it coincidence that BMW released a 450cc recently? Hmm...to hell with the Dakar then. Sounds like F1 now (stupid round-a-round anyway).

look at my carbs now..
I guess the slides were rattling like crazy and the needle couldnt take it anymore.. of course needle jets are worn out too ive already ordered 2 sets of needles and needle jets..

another proof that our bikes are "die hard" ....

it was running fine (just some idle problems) with the slide guides worn like that .. it managed to bring me back home, about 70 miles,when the needle broke off.. just had some bogging on mid RPM
I couldn't find any either when I was mucking around with my carbs....

Referring to the carb problem above, I`m quite intrigued. When you mean guides, which are integral to the carb body so you would have to replace the whole carb, I assume you mean the quaintly named piston valve (the thing that goes up and down with the needle in). Having referred to all three of the genuine parts books and all my fiches, it seems this part has the same number (13551-44B10) as the brass butterfly valve, which is obviously a mistake by Suzuki. It gets worse...........
The correct part number for a piston valve is 13501-..... however, there is no part number ending in 44B.. which would be a DR 750 number, but there is an 01D00 number which is the GS 500 part number. I`ve used a set of GS 500 carbs on one of my Bigs when one set broke when I dropped them. I just changed the jets etc over, and it ran fine and they are still running fine many thousands of miles later. So I`m guessing that they are the same as the DR 750. I`ve probably confused you all by now but it all makes sense to me. So if you want to replace the sliders in your carbs the part number is almost certainly 13501-01D00 (they made restricted versions of these, 01DGO and 01DK0 so don`t buy these). About 45 UK or $70 USD each.
This is the first time I`ve heard of a needle breaking like this, and these carbs (or very similar) were used on all the GSXR`s, Bandits, RF`s etc from 1985 right through until recently when the emissions Nazis banned them, so there must be millions of sets of these carbs out there.

Incidentally, I do have lots of spares which have taken me twenty years to acquire, and NO I don`t want to sell any of them.

Of course they do, silly me, I was obviously thinking of something else
Right I`ve actually checked this out with Suzuki GB as I`ve known the head of Technical there for donkeys years. Suzuki do not supply this part and never have. I also checked out TTS who are the big Suzuki tuning people in the UK and they know of no pattern part either.
Looks like you are looking for good second hand carbs.
Plenty of bikes used these carbs
GS 500
DR 650
DR 750/800
GSXR 7501988-95
GSXR 1100 1986-97
GSX 600F 1988-2006
GSX 750F 1989-2006
GSX 1100F 1988-94
GSX 1100G 1990-92
RF 600
RF 900
Bandit 1200
I think also GSXR/Bandit 400 1988-95
