For the money people are trying to get for those things lately I'm sure the ones that are left aren't going anywhere.

Daddy like that bike and never knew it was even available here...

Daddy also knows he'd be a terror on it causing heart attacks of sleepy clueless drivers while lane splitting slow ass Nashville traffic because it looks as svelte as his NX250...


That or a Berg, and I give myself 24hours before I'd be in jail for NOT doing what normal ppl do...

From what I've heard there were ~200-250 imported, supposedly about one or two per dealer, so yeah I wouldnt be too quick to sell mine for too cheap at all considering all the work in it and rarity. I'm in Louisville, KY and have yet to see another one, other than mine, in person and I go to bike shows and events often.
Ive had people try and get me to sell them my original dealer shop manual for exorbitant prices, it goes with the bike and the bike aint going nowhere lol

I had one for a few years, 94-97. It got "butchered" into a race bike. I wish I had it now in it's original form. Cool bikes.

finally found mine

stumbled across the chautauqua county (ny) craigslist last week and found my SRX in Jamestown, NY. 9600 miles, painted a pretty bright red, really old dunlops (splitting on sidewalls), and a leaky petcock. Started first kick! (second actually, but I didn't put the choke on till the second kick, lol). Boy, is it LOUD. Has a like new 10" long canister with "DC Sports", 3" inlet, with no visible baffles in the middle of the exhaust.
Can anybody help me quiet this down w/o busting my meager budget? I've love to swap with someone that wants louder but would also buy something reasonable. btw, my VIN ends with 000898, if that means anything.

Need rear shocks for SRX600 '86

Guys - I also have an '86 SRX6, stock, in red, that my Dad gave me before he passed away. It's cherry, except it needs rear shocks. Stock ones feel like zero oil in them. What will swap from another stock bike?
Any help is appreciated. Pictures soon. Thanks!

Found some aftermarket shocks that work great.

Here's a few photos of my SRX600.

As it was when I got it last September:



And, now after I finished restoring it:

Believe there were more than 250. I had one in college for a short time before the magic black box bit the dust. My dad has had 2 over the years (a mint, mint, mint black one, and later, a red beater that later became my college transportation as mentioned).
