Cheers,

A word of warning when dealing with sites that list parts and prices like they are available. I ordered a fuel tank from MX South because they listed one, so I assumed they had it. Not so. They took my order and my money (over $600.00) and only then did they look to see if it was available. It wasn't. And it took them 2 weeks to give my money back.
Don't know about CMS, but I've heard that Bike Bandit work the same way.

had similar to some extend experience with CMSNL. They could not deliver part faster than 5 weeks, and I only been informed about it after I made order.
I refused, cancelled - but since order was for several parts (half of which were useless without other half) despite my cancellation they STILL did send me parts available and returned money for rest.
Then I went to Suzuki dealer and he looked and those parts had 4 weeks waiting time at Suzuki. E.g. CMS placed my order to Suzuki, found that there was 4 weeks time and informed me. Nice.
Anyway, it wasn't much money, something like 30 euros.
Since that time I order my parts at Suzuki dealer without any problem. I am sure for older bikes CMSNL could be answer, but I prefer German or UK online shops - they seem to be like 2 times faster with everything than Belgian and Dutch shops.

Talking Camel Trophy DR BIG?

So I have found myself another BIG on our little Isle of Guernsey I'm picking it up next week and will post photos asap.

Strangely though it is in Camel Trophy colours, all bodywork yellow with blue decals and seat Ive searched the tinterweb and cant find anything on it!

Does anyone know if the DR's were used at all in the Camel Trophy or is this just a post factory paint job seat cover etc?

Scrub that just found this, scroll down to Camel: http://museumoto.bassella.com/en/exp...ious/dakar.php

Wow. You might have stumbled across lucky find. MAY BE.
They were not in Camel Trophy, they were in Dakar with CT logos and in blue-yellow colors!
Not Suzuki Factory team DR Zetas, but Camel brand sponsored riders, just as it says in your link. It might be true rallye bike. I specially was going through Dakar charts by years and names Fernandez and Gualini IS there with DRs and with Camel sponsorship!
Photos please.

Now I know what I'm looking for it would appear that your spot on Bluesman.

Need to get my hands on the paperwork and find out whether its an actual ex rally bike or a limited edition paint scheme which it would appear was an option in France even thought the rider spanish

Exciting times
