I suspect it will start fine once thoroughly dry!


We assume you did not use a pressure washer...

If he gets, let's say, $12k for it then I'll put mine on the market too.

I emailed him pretty quickly but was kinda put off by his asking price.

OK, ATs are rare in the US but not "non-existant"......and as much as I like them, where we're only a few thousand away from a brand new Tenere and the AT has 40K on the clock......the yellow flashing "you better think again" light went on.

That price is ridiculous! Especially knowing that he needs to get rid of it by the end of the year, he is moving back to Denmark. I'm sure he'll drop the price when it gets closer to moving day and he still has the Twin in the garage.

For 8.000$ each I can load a container with AT's and send them there !!!! (custom's "tips" included )
Even better, I will bring each one personally in "a trip around the world".

That's a lot of cash. Be interesting to see what he gets for it. He's not too far from me. I should ride up there and take a pic of my identical 2001 next to his.

Hello Roymacnic,
this 'also when I turn on the ignition switch the neutral light etc take a couple of seconds to come on' makes me think of a loose cable at the ignition-key-switch. A common fault on Suzuki DR Bigs (SR 41 and 42). Those have this switch in the tacho-/rev-counter-unit on top of the triple-tree. So the whole unit turns with your handle bar and the cables seem to be too short for this movement and shear off ...
Kind regards, Bambi

Alainmax, just out of curiousity what's the deal with using a pressure washer on an Africa twin, I reciently bought one of those small home models with every intention of using it on the twin. Now I wouldn't go spraying directly into electrical connections but I did replace all of the electrical connections with nice waterproof ones from Eastern Beaver so maybe I could.

Excessive water pressure is not good for places like bearings and connectors. It should be fine if you didn't point the nozzle directly at those areas.

I think at least you should get a OEM pinion (drive sprocket) in order to protect your output shaft...

I always get the original OEM kit including drive and driven sprockes and chain... but that's just me.

I will get both front and rear sprocket and a chain. More kind of wondering what type of chain and any particular brand I should get/not get.
