I'm narrowing my next bike choice down and number one on the list is a DR Big. The price is right, they're available (although in fairly limited supply), they're funky enough etc etc. I'm up to page 50 in this thread and I've a lot of pages to go so if this is 205 my apologies :)

So, intro done, question time;
Right now I'm wondering what the differences, just the big ones, are between a SR42 and an SR43.
Is it worth hanging on for one model over the other?
Is there a buyer's guide buried in this thread that I've not found so far?

thanks in advance for your answers :)
hey catweasel,

there is an used buyers guide for the DR 800 at motorradonline http://www.motorradonline.de/gebrauc...r-800-s/107160

i have 2 sr42´s, and what i can tell you is, that they are very rare here in austria, so getting used parts is a PITA. i was looking for a second sr42 for a long time and found one this august in upper austria. i paid 1000euros for it, needed new battery and tyres.
i´m no expert on the sr43, but AFAIK the main difference is a smaller fuel tank, auto-decomp and the new styling.
for me, some must do´s are steel brake lines and tuned suspenison in the front with fork brace.

have you seen this one already? http://www.willhaben.at/iad/gebrauch...?adId=49546595

greetings from wieselburg
josef
