Have a look at this link:

http://www.heise-workstations.de/dr750/DR750-e.html

and I'm moving this to the Thumpers forum for more feedback. The DR750 was available in Canada for a while.

427 pounds dry. I like the way it looks, but it seems heavy for what it is.

They are huge and heavy. Imagine a KLR, but bigger. It has nearly 400 miles of fuel range, and lopes along down country roads at 80mph with ease.

I have one.

It would probably be easier for us to remember if you just told us which bikes you don't have.

Here about history: http://www.suzukicycles.org/DR-serie...800S-Big.shtml
and this http://www.hessler-motorsport.de/images/bikes/foto.htm is an excellent site (and DR-shop), but in German.

it amazes me that suzuki dont build a dr650 adventure bike ...similar to the 750-800 style ..with bigger tank stiffer suspension bash plate pannier racks spot lights screen heated grips... all suzuki need to do is look at this site and see the mods people have done to their DR's ...c'mon suzuki listen to the people

Dr800 (dr Big)

I saw one of these advertised in the local classifieds, always been interested in these behemoths, any reason why these should not be bought?

thanks

That sounds good, pray tell about the small things?

Til what year did they make these bikes?

What is the top speed of these?

and what is a good cruising speed?

thanks

here we go:

- it's important that the cam chain is allways right adjusted - you should prove this all 6000km's. oil change should be done also all 6000km's. don't use full-synthetic oil because of the clutch. (do the remaining maintenance like it's printed in the guide)
- if the engine is cold, don't make more than 4000rpm for the first 5km's

- the latest bikes were build in 1999

- top speed is about 164 km/h

- best cruising speed is round about 120 km/h
