Hi

morning everybody,

I am in Mauritius where parts are difficult to find , so I better make sure before ordering !

My Dr 750 SR41 have a problem , the battery doesnt charge itself well ,

when running It goes from 12 to 13 V very slowly and when lites are on , it stays on 12 V...

Few month ago i Re wired the stator as it wasnt charging at all .....

So 2 questions :

Do you think I have to change the stator completely ?
Can the rectifier be broken ?

If yes where can I get the part number from ???

THank you in advance !

Try this place for part numbers sergo http://www.cmsnl.com/

I think if the rectifier is broken then you would be getting lots more ergols when the bike is running at high revs, have you been blowing bulbs in the lights ?

Hi all,
Sergo, I checked the part numbers for the four models listed on cmsnl for the rectifier and the magneto .
The numbers are the same through all 4.
I suppose you have done but check your ground and cables,connections for corosion and all that .

DRZ Forks On A BIG?!?!?!

I found a set of DRZ forks and front wheel combo from a fellow inmate. That coupled with a close friend of mine that has a mill and a lathe in his garage and I am going to attempt to put them on my '88. My immediate plans are to use a large SM front disc brake set up (320mm i do believe) and of course spring it and possibly limit it to the proper weight and travel.

I got the idea from Ladder106 who mentioned in an earlier post that by thelooking at both bikes side by side, it may be possible and from what i have seen in this thread as well as others the only limit to the actual possibilities is our imagination.

THis project won't start right away as this is Canada and frankly the riding season is too short to start dismantling my BIG now. That and I don't have the parts yet.

For some reason I really like conventional forks and really don't think that I will ever use the full potential of a USD fork. Hence, why my other bike is a DRZ. Simple yet very functional for everyday use.

I will of course, keep you all posted when the project gets underway as well there will be pics and explanations including the major problems involved if there are some. In the meantime if anyone out there has done this mod or has any advice as to what I should do for the most part then please feel free to comment or shoot me a PM.

Go forth rapidly Jack Rabbit.

You can make all the mistakes before I do. But actually we both may be doing this at about the same time.....late fall/winter.

We can collaborate.......


My main concerns are that the increase in travel may make the front wheel/fender hit the downtube and it that doesn't happen, the rear end may have to be raised to balance the front. I ran into this situation with my Transalp with the XR650 forks. A 25mm spacer (a longer shock would be the ultimate answer) had to be added to raise the front to balance the bike.

Hi all

jenksx
No shame in not being imediately happy with a bike, not everybody would be happy with this type of thing, though it may grow on you.
I see lots of people have more than 1 bike so they have choice depending on their mood and needs at that time.If like me you have 1 bike you should be happy with it.
The only thing I miss is the smell and the anti-social racket of 2stroke
If you do decide to sell you might not be "stuck" with it for long.

+1 for the orange seat.

Update

The DR750 project as of today. Still got a few parts to be rubbed down and painted, a few parts still coming and a few parts still to buy. Get new tyres fitted Monday so the wheels can go in and it will start to look like a bike. If you want to see all the photo's from the original bike to now, just click on this link. http://s571.photobucket.com/albums/s...new%20project/

Cheers

Hey Aussie - looking great mate.

If you go ahead and get an orange seat cover made, get me one as well please. If we get a few it might bring the cost down a bit. I always thought that an orange seat would look good, but at the time Suzuki probably weren't game, thinking thay'd gone far enough with the engine paint.

Cheers,

Simon.

DR750 on ebay

Hi Guys,

Just a heads up. There's a DR750 on Aussie ebay (nothing to do with me)and it looks pretty good at a bargain price. Check out item number 320554265159.

Happy bidding,

Simon.

Question:

Do the 650 and the 750/800 have the same frame?

As far as I know sr/41 750 and sr/42 800 are the same but different for the mounting near rear brake pedal for the slave cylinder.
SR/43 late 91 onwards 800 is WAY different to others much heavier braced frame .
