Rob, did you get your 800 crank new or secondhand? I have a secondhand one and have noticed that it is welded. the big end seems to be ok but it would be nice to freshen it up while I can.

Simon I got mine checked by Resi/ Lars, as I bought it off him . do you know how many K,s were on the bike from which it came. only early 750,s were not welded I read from Big Bob info himself.
Maybe check the side play and if it is in tollerence the big end is probably good. they have a massive bearing in there.

Aapo, beautiful piece of metal you have there

Is the special head gasket made of single copper sheet?

Gasket is made by suzuki. Looks identical to original, but different dimension. I'll take picture soon.

Aapo, according to the part number the gasket is identical to the original one. I guess Suzuki made them only in one size to fit original bore and oversize.

Suzuki just sent me the link today.
I think it's actually meant to get us interested in the concept 1000 V-Strom based on the design of the original DR750........ it worked........

Can't wait for it to be released and half the planet thinking that they copied BMW, when the opposite is closer to the truth!

Just a direct replacement, Please

While I'm encouraged that a company this large honors their history (and the vid is great to see), I find it a really huge conceptual leap to equate the DR750/800 product line with the V-Strom line.

I've seen that they are underscoring this "relationship" at the motorcycle shows that feature their new 1000 cc V-Strom. And while it's great to remind everyone that the DRs were first to have a beak and the first to use the term
"Dual Sport" trying to build a connection between our fairly off-road capable bikes and the new overweight road-going V-Strom (or whatever they will call it).......is just too much of an conceptual stretch. Just tacking a beak onto this pig will not suddenly reveal any Dakar/Pharoah's Rally "genetics" in its build.

I'm sure it will be a very nice bike for motorways and graded/gravel roads but would look like a hippo in the Sahara if running on anything more serious.

I'm still waiting for any of the Japanese builders to give us something that matches the over-all performance of the Big - Africe Twin - Tenere of the late 80s and early 90s. So far, the 660 Tenere from Yamaha has come closest (and is STILL not available in the US). The others are still too worried that the riding public is not ready for an off-road bike that can be used on the tar. They keep trying to build road/touring bikes and make us believe that they will be OK in the dirt. Maybe selling the "concept" of off road is more profitable the actually making the machine capable of doing it.

I really like the first "jump" in the vid.

You can almost see Gaston thinking "Good Grief this thing is HEAVY when full of fuel"

The bikes (and riders) look much happier further along the vid where (I'm assuming) the fuel load was not quite so high.
