Doesn't look bad but I can not see me buying it. It is too road oriented just like previous V-strom models. Honestly I don't think that we will see any big off-road capable bike from big manufacturers any more. Even KTM has stepped one step closer to road bikes with new 1190ADV compared to 990.

But the video of Marlboro Bigs is a good one.

Suzuki have added a 21 inch front wheel and not as many vib,s more power than a Big one would presume and this all adds up to comfort for the old farts that now have the cash to spend and really arn,t fit enough for some serious trail riding, but love to power slide and kill 1k days with ease and sit 120/140 kph like you are sitting in a lounge chair (outback Ozz stuff. )
All the after market gear will follow depending on sales to trick it up a little.
There is no bike that does every thing right, but some bikes excel in different applications depending on what you want to do at the time, the Big does a lot of things and a good allrounder but is not perfect at any thing but is still way up on the list of machines to own and a pleasure to ride with very little effort.

Guys I can sell my SR42 original carbs if someone's interested. They are in good working order, cleaned and o-rings replaced. Main jets 130, 132.5, 135 will come along.

With 130 mains and triangle cut out from original air filter the bike ran pretty well.

On the road

Hello everyone.
I've had my new DR750 on the road for a week now, having gone over the bike looking after needed maintenance and repairs. Nothing major but lots of little items to tend to. I pulled the mag cover and checked the balancer chain etc as well as removing the sump screen, checking valve clearence and all looks great. It seems the previous owners looked after routine oil and filter changes---too bad they were hard on the plastics and tin though
Last weekend I was touring Manitoulin Island, (the world's largest fresh water island) not too far from home while attending a CVMG event. Although my 1989 BIG is not really "vintage" it still garnered lots of interest as the bikes are so rare in Canada. Many of our members had never heard of the model and those that knew of them had never seen one.

At the ferry dock, South Baymouth



And at the Gore Bay harbour



As you can see, I removed, cleaned and painted the exhaust system as well as making the heat shields that were missing. I also painted the front fender satin black for now and generally cleaned everything up. That's it for cosmetics for now. A new rear Avon Gripster to match the front, brake pads all around and a new throttle assembly were the only parts required. Some time was spent sorting out electrical issues and those are the highlights.
So far I am enjoying this motorcycle very much.

Just remove the leaver on the top with the one 6mm bolt , you may have to open the slot a little with a screw driver, then prize or lift the rod out, with the seal, or hook a sciber into the seal and prize it out its a easy job.
