Suzuki SP125, Anyone Heard Of It?
I'm snagging a really cheap, titled Suzuki SP125 tommorow from work. It needs some work- clutch adjustment, taillight, horn, etc- but seems like it could make a nice little runabout for someone once it's fixed up.
It's damn near impossible to find anything about the bike online. The best I could get after an hour of google-fu was that the motor shares most of its parts with the DR125, and the rest of the bike shares quite a few bits with DRs too, but they are not identical. It also apparently has a six-speed transmission, which is pretty nifty and very nice to have on such a small bike. Maybe it could hit 55 without blowing up in 6th.
When looking at the bike it seemed pretty simple, small aircooled SOHC two-valve single, kickstarter, basic Mikuni carb, weird exhaust.
Anyone have one of these? Anything to watch out for, sources for parts, service manuals (or at least service specs like valve lash, proper spark plug, etc)?

They came out in the mid 80's, I think the 125 & 200 were 86 & 87 models that were just about the same as the DR125 & 200. The SP's just had all the street legal gear. My friend had the DR200. It actually was pretty fast, but I wouldn't expect the 125 to go much faster than 55, because the 200 was only good for about 70 on the flat.
The suspension bottoms over just about anything. They are reliable, but it's really just a VERY casual bike.
