    I bought an '86 DR600 Dakar last year and was disappointed to find the head/cam thrashed and the counterbalancer chain broken. It ran so I bought it. What can you do - buyer beware. I now have it stripped and starting the rebuild. The head was difficult to find until I found out about the SP600s. I got a head out of California and I'm going to paint the frame once it warms up.
    I'm looking forward to riding it this year (fingers crossed).

    post some pictures of that dakar 600
    you might be able to use a 90-95 dr650 engine too

    i have been thinking of using the sp/dr600 head and headpipe on 91 dr650
    i wonder why suzuki changed the head

    seeing these pictures of that old 185 brings back a lot of memories Tudelum.. that thing did lots stuff that it shouldn't have..and it too was very ugly like most zukies..gonna hunt for some old zukies in my travels this summer..we travel lots of forgotten roads .. gonna look for chrome fenders first..

    great pic! if you were to put the "suzuki" logo script in white in the bottem left, and "sp600" in red on the top right, i might think its a brochure. reminds me of the time i spent in western NC. and youre absolutely right, i need some new pics. if what the welder said the last i talked to him is true i should have something new to show thursday. heres hoping for that to work out:freaky

    You just need a Camel cig hanging out of your mouth and you would be an 80's advertising Icon!!!

    I got a 1950 Harley Hydra Glide to get running. (Not to rare)
    and a 1966 106cc Sears. If you think this SP600 thread is rare a 106 Sears thread would be one short line.:rofl
