HI Okta,

Nice to see you here, your bike is bit weird, but it is very unique so well done...:)))

I like Vesa front fender, but I am afraid to say that in the Hungarian forum, I think they would kill me for it:))

Go on Mate all the best!

I haven't write anything for a while, but I am still reading Guys!!!!!
Nice paintwork Robmoto, I wish I could do the same.....

Cheers
Gabor

(Start with the first pic and then click on the arrow:

Differences: no mechanic knowledge, no correct tools and no money. So I call it "economy-style".

Don't you worry, I have all original plastics packed into boxes...

The thinggy on the front lamp? This a military stuff - you know in the past almost all socialist vehicle had the same diamater of the front lamp. This is an old MZ-lamp on the bike, so it fits on it.

Ah, the secret unveiled: Bluesman uses trained sheep for quality control! Thanks for the tips.

Yesterday: left the *** parking light on for three hours - battery dead. Try bump starting an 800cc single All I did was create tire marks, even in fourth gear. Found a friendly cager with starter cables, blew one of the fuses (I think starter/ignition circuit), replaced it with headlight fuse, stalled the engine, again the cables, turned up the idle, took the long way home to get some charge in. This morning it started, but I'm replacing the battery anyway.
Also had to adjust the head stock bearings. According to the previous owner it's as good as new...but I guess he didn't re-adjust them properly after installing.

Did you guys ever manage to bump start the BIG? Maybe with the manual deco?

Hi all,
Brendan I'm considering the same myself.what are ya thinking, doing?
I think I know what I want, I am thinking of 2 round ,one HID white and the other as a led replacement to shine yellow for daytime.With a long led light horizontal under both to look conspicuous to other road users.
Probably will look fuc&ed up but in me head it looks great. I just havent got the courage to start the stripping yet as time is precious and I know I would have no lights for ages until its done.
Chris

G'day Chris I'm using the same setup as Hessler uses. I finally worked out what lights he uses and what bike they are off. The only problem with the lights are they are designed for people who drive on the wrong side of the road but I think I may be able to over come that problem. I will have to admit they are a PITA to fit as I have had to make up brackets and bend & twist & grind things but I'm slowly getting there. I will post some photos up on here when I get some time.

Aussie DR-BIG owners GET TOGETHER

Well I have had a bit more of a think about this and wanted to float the idea of a get together in March next year. Now this would give you guys sometime to get your bikes sorted as I know Berg2 has a bit of work to do on his and Rob's 750 is coming along nicely as well one of Ozzie's bikes is a work in progress to boot. So please tell me what you think and if you can think of a place to meet as well would be good. I am open to any suggestions of time and place so don't be scared to voice your thoughts as I won't be offended.

Now for anyone other Aussie's reading this and you have a DR750/800 and are not a member of this forum please join and make yourselves known your opinion is also appreciated.

Aussie get together

Hi Brendan, Swan Hill sounds OK for a meet, but I'd have to go via Darwin to make a decent ride out of it as I'm in Perth. I guess we could call it a "BIG" event .

Hey Lloyd, what do you reckon? Are you up for it?

Has anybody got any of the rubber mounted nuts that hold the fairing on to the beak? I really only need one but I reckon by the time I remove the fairing I'll probably need 4. I'm spittin' chips because Suzuki want $3.80 for each screw and $11.35 for each rubber nut. Also is there another type of nut and bolt that will do the same job?

Simon, I would love to take off and ride across Australia but I don't have the time, the money or the resources.

Cheers,
