Aussie get together

Hey robmoto,

Maybe Lloyd and I should drop in from WA at the same time. That would be 6 DR Bigs. Shiney new stuff is GOOOOOD! I'm waiting on my Wilbers shock and Hessler exhaust, (to og with all my other goodies) then the transformation can begin...

Watch this space!

Simon.

Talking piston its to hard to make a disission over the internet maybe look for fractures on the inside or underside of the crown or take it to a mechanic to make a judgement.
I have a allmost brand new one here I can sell if needed may only 1000klm,s on it, A NEW one is about 450 bucks at the cheapest .
Thanks Robmoto
I felt no tension at all from the tensioner and also I had small metal (magnetic) pieces in the strainer. I'll check the guts of the filter today as well as pull the side covers to check for remnants.....
I've been out to your neck of the woods before! I went to the Bathhurst 1000 back in 97 when I was in Oz for a year travelling. Just love your country. I worked on a sheep station in south west Queensland past Quilpie.
I went to the F1 in Montreal with my bro and we got a thumbs up from Mark Webber when we gave him the old "Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi" in the drivers parade. Not his day but a good race

I'll check the pistion today too.

Aussi get together yep good idea I can think 7 / 750,s and 4 / 800,s but don,t know of any more there must be a few others that maybe don,t know about this forrum perhaps.
Where to meet at good question ummmm.
Simon so you like the bling as well the shinyer the better and a wilbers shock fully adjustable I hope but arn,t they like 15 hundred bucks, I think I will just get mine regased, I bought front and back springs from HRT and another set of pumpers for the orange 750 the motor I put back in tonight so frame and motor are the only parts done so far.

Loads of pictures on this forum, just 493 pages for you to wade through, good luck.
Hellooooo Daisy DR very nice to see you looking so good. Megamoto, thanks for the pic, there's no harm in braggin' a little for the wanna be like me. I'm curious, does the black DR mean a certain production year?

Oh and, I like your sig line. Seeing that, plus your smiling face means you're smart and sexy too . You must whiten cause your teeth are so brite .

The black is a re-spray. There's a bit of flake in it too. Nice in the sunshine.








Like my teeth.

Tantrum - if you want to tell the year of a DR750 or DR800 by colour, click on this link.
http://www.dr-big.com/ then click on History.

Cheers.

For Sale

I have a stainless steel DR BIG chain guard for a DR 800, brand new, never been on the bike. Will swap or sell for original plastic chain guard for DR 750 but must be in mint condition. Genuine new Suzuki part is $77 in Australia. So if you buy it, it would have to have postage added to that. So all up I reckon probably about $90 but would have to make sure first. Cheaper than from Europe anyway and you can use paypal.
Probably only suit someone in Australia or NZ.
PM me or email me at ausibatla@tadaust.org.au
Cheers,

Choke Plunger

Hi
Maybe somebody has a spare choke plunger from DR750? I want to replace my cable operated choke because the threaded part holding the whole thing in the place is broken on mine. CMSNL is asking 25.- EUR for shipping only.

The 2 dr 650,s loaded with our gear.
