Well... I put the new/old CDI in it but haven't ridden it yet . In fact, I haven't ridden much since the crash at all. Mrs Ztaj and I did go for a wee pootle and she actually got away on me a couple of times on some gravel/shingle on her 350
When I did start it there didn't seem to be any change in the symptoms, so I will take it to a professional.
BTW... nice bit of parking

Hello,
Rob's pic brings back memories of great luck in 1990. It's been year 1 after the opening of the iron curtain and my first trip into the former DDR (German Democratic Republic). At that time it was still a seperate country, our reunion happened some months later. But back to the story:
At Zschopau, were MZs were built a world-championship enduro took place. My friend on an XT 500 and me on the Triumph Tiger Trail payed for the camping-ground and set off to find our place on that huge meadow. At that time, bikes like ours where no common sight there and many people showed us with their hand to twist the grip. And so we did. Rear-wheels spinning and slip-sliding left-right-left-right we averaged something near 100 km/h on the grass 'til we reached our 'claimed' place. Getting off the bikes we looked back to the spectators. At that moment a 50 cc Simson Moped took nearly the same route with something like 50 km/h. He was just a bit sideways from our track. Suddenly his bike got stuck in the mud deep down to it's front axle, sending the poor guy over the bars. I think, if my Tiger had 'found' this puddle I would have flown some 20 meters, fast as I was ... and my friend would have been flying by my side ... we had been very lucky ...
Kind regards, Bambi ... one of my 'tallest' motorcycle-stories

A mate dropped around this arvo with his new 690. I was staring at the front of it when he asked what I was looking for.......... I said "A tow hook"

He punched me in the eye..............

Hi, Nave! Thanks :) I thinking about such "mudification" (с) , but still not sure in this. If i'm not wrong, after this DR will only "one person bike" (i mean that take passenger on board will be impossible), but not sure that i want to do this.
The way you made your bike in "first version" seems more attractive to me.
I mean this:

Hi,
Moving the seat 4c"m will not make the bike a one passenger!
I'm riding with my wife behind a lot (this days only offroad...) she didn't Complained about sitting Position.
The only thing that is missing for me now as compared to the first version is the storage space...
Waiting to see the progress

hey guys,

i found a dr 750 near me for very low money cause its not running and hasn´t for a few years. i have a sr42 and was wondering if it would make any sence to buy it as a parts bike? i would need a new cdi anyway (so says my mechanic) and having some parts available would be nice.
cheers
josef

can anyone please put an instruction how to change fork oil.. and how much oil goes inside it, and how to do it without breaking those oil seals or whatever they are..
I'll just grab another beer and do what I know how to do until someone helps me out.

Jakob,

I do this like in the service manual described.

http://www.timguy.net/sites/drbiginfo/DrBIGmanuals/

Additionaly I use petroleum to get the black stinky old oil out of the bottom valves.
I let them drip out bottom side up overnight (after petroleum flush).
Fresh oil depends on your and your bikes weight and preferences.

Refill: press the fork together, spring not yet inserted.
Fill oil up to 160mm (SR43, Wirth springs, rider app.100kgs).
As a rule of thumb: The smaller the air chamber the harder the fork

Cheers,
Lars
