Rob i have been asking BOB on the other site some questions about the "shims" that are in behind the three gears that take the drive from the starter to the crank ,They are not listed in the book ,Just wondering have you shimed your starter gears ??? Although my bike isn"t running i have turned it over and there is quite a noise as if one of the gears is moving along the shaft and thumping the back of the outer casing ,just thinking is there a shim missing that would hold the gear in position.Any thoughts . cheers

No sorry mate.

I haven't touched my engine. It worked fine before I stripped the bike, so I'm hoping I won't have do any work on it. Therefore, I have no idea about what's going on inside the mighty lump ! Sorry I could not be of any help !

Well I went through all this stuff before if it ain,t got em you don,t need em, there is some lateral play in the gears when one is pushed right in towards the crank case and the other is pushed right out towards the outside the teeth on both cogs are wide enough to have full width teeth contact so they are still meshing to the fullest.
If there in there use em if not , don,t bother.
If you have em and put them on the wrong shaft the outside case will be to tight so they say and the starter won,t crank as well.
I think Colum had this trouble.

FINISHED! A BIG with small fuel tank and without "beak's duck"

FINISHED! A BIG with small fuel tank and without "beak's duck"

First... of course... sorry for my bad english... OK? I hope you can understand me... :-D

I do not know if anyone will remember that in last October 2012 I began to think transform my Suzuki DR 750 Big on a different bike, closer to the beginning of Trail concept of the 70's. That began a first search smaller and light fuel tanks to remove some weight and change the bike image. This was my post: http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...62489&page=918



With a Merlin Dg11 500 fuel tank (a gift from my friend ManoloMK10) I started a search of different pieces: front headlights, fenders, seats, turn lights, plastics... and, of course, people to help me in the task. To all those who helped me in something I can say only ¡Gracias! Thank you!



Well, with all in position, I needed start and work... two months and a half, but the bike is finished. Perhaps I can write all in english ...really in MY english :-D ... but I wrote all in my blog and I think is more easy if you use a automatic translator at your language. If you have any problem, ask me... and I supose I can answer you :-S

Long version (16 chapters, giving reasons about the transformation, pics, sketches, testing differents fuel tanks; the transformation; and pics about the final bike) El Proyecto LS (The LS project)
Medium version (11 chapters, the transformation and pics about the final bike) LS project, part 2: The Garbí
Short version (2 chapters, pics about the final bike) ¡¡¡Terminada!!! (Finished!!!)


Just ask two things:
-Opinions. Worse or better. Really I think this is an unfinished history... I can improve very much things... but I need your opinions for this.
-Wide distribution. If you write about my bike in other forums, please write here the link. I want very much opinions!!! :-)

Thanks for your time... and I repeat, sorry for my bad english... :-D

Just a question, has anyone tried changing the rear wheel of the DR800 to that of a DR650?

I am thinking of doing that, because it's hard getting spare parts for this bike over here.

Try a cross check with 91 dr 650 for SR 42/89 and SR 42/90 using CSMNL.
OR try All Balls for bearings
