and i have another question, about an exhaust system, I want to get my bike a bit louder, but with my salary i cant afford those hessler fancy double exhaust system. So I would need a little cheaper way to do it. It has to have double mufflers as original, And it has to look good.
still haven't got a gas tank, so i'm thinking a bit tuning up my beauty.

Hi guys,

Now that my SR42/800S is running well, I'm slowing making it look better as well. The beak is OK, but a bit ratty. It obviously was in some form of accident and was repaired with a steel patch and nuts and bolts. I may have a line on a 1987 or 1988 DR750 that is being wrecked. DO you think the beak will fit? Colour/paint is not an issue, I can repaint no problem?

Thanks,

Shane

yeah Shane, she'll fit. the only real difference between the 41 and 42 is the longer stroke and rear disc brake. the bike didn't lose it's rugged good looks until the SR43

Rear Shock - What did you go with

Looks like my rear shock is done. Bike sags. Appears the preload has been tightened down with not much more room to stiffen it up. So if you changed your shock, what did you go with? Source? DR750 1988. Original shock is installed. Thanks everyone.

Sounds like your spring is done....not the shock

Although, if the spring is that bad there's likely not much damping going on in the shock proper.

For replacement, I like Wilburs. Standard shocks are usually rubbish.

They are all expensive buy once you've done it you'll find it's money very well spent

I saw a couple of Bigs with Ducati Monster exhausts.
Saw them in a parking lot, on a trip through Austria. Didn't see the owners, so could not ask them about it. Looks good though..

...and does anyone know the specifications of the standard shock so I can go ahead a look for a new one without having to take this bike apart? Its my daily rider. Thank you.

It looks slimy... did you fall ?
If you didn't fall you were not riding fast enough (just kidding)

Well done, keep going

Maxi on the first page you can down load a manual, go down the list and its there don,t know if it still works though, if not best to buy a paper one.
This will give you a insight for what you are in for .

Maxi,

We may have to work through a bit of language translation here.

It would be helpful to know the year and model of your DR.

Can you describe the starting problem more exactly?
