Yes but he's either reclusive or just doesn't like me. I've sent a few PMs considering that he's one of the few Big owners on this continent....no reply.

Jimmy It has some good points a bit hard for me to see in the pic should have the disc brake set up and battery box suit the location of the brake resiviour and CDI .
Ladders 89 and my 89 have a shorter wirering loom, therefore no big pile of wires under the beak sort of thing,may have been a upgrade.
Allso the upgraded switch blocks on the handle bars.
Side covers and beak if you wanted them ect try German ebay as there is a lot bits on there for sale and combine the post, allso England ebay.

I'll be in vancouver later this month,I'll look at it if its still available.My son rode my 750 and liked it.My plan now is to get the 750 all set up,and look for a 1990 800.I could give him the 750 and we'd both have the same bike.Don't think the 90 came to canada,would have to import.Not having any problems with parts so far,modern cycle in vancouver got me a brand new taillight in three days and even had a decent supply of parts in stock.I had found a photo of a 1990 800 on here with black rims and laser pipe.I set that pic as my screensaver,but now I can't seem to re-find that one.That bike is exactly what I want,now that I've ridden a bit of offroad and can see that its gonna be passable for trail use.My only mods for better trail use are going to be better tires,stiffer springs front and rear and footpegs have to be moved rearward about 4 inches,as well as fit wider pegs.Amazes me how that 750 will pull from low low revs that would have my 450 stalling,then takes an early shift and keeps pulling without any issue.Feels like running at least a gear too high.I'm not going to go crazy spending on the 750,it has to be in scale with the value of the bike,so mods are all going to be with a focus on value.My advantage is having most of a spare parts bike that came with in the purchase of my bike.

Cheers Bluesman..... but I want/need some originals for the same reason I put an original muffler on the bike.I'll keep the offer in mind though
I see a set on e-bay in Germany, but buy the time they get here it'll be about 400 N.Z. pesos.
I'll keep looking, I know other suzuki bikes had the same dials and all I "need" is the speed gauge

Sorry James, I have a set doing nothing, but i might have a off, or one of the other bikes might need them replacing, or the crummy wires on the trail tech might fatigue and snap, so I will hang on to them. sorry mate.

No worries chap.... I'm not in a huge hurry, the Big's been parked up since January, a bit more won't hurt. At least I don't have to pay rego and buy tyres every other month

I went to the side car rally yesterday, not far from home, on the Bridle Track this is the old road to the goldfield town called Hillend, the camp site was next to the Mcquarie River about 1/2 way along.
Here is the link, just scroll down a bit to the pics

Hellicks Hellmet theres no breaking that adaptor, tough stuff, hows it handle now.
What I have noticed though is your rear rack your grab handles are at about 30 degrease, where as my bikes the handles are level and between the bolt holes .
what year is your bike manufactured, as I have never noticed this before.
