They changed the colour between years and markets and there`s not really a good photo of your bike as most of your photos now say "image unavailable"
What year is it, and what country of origin?
From what I can see it`s 12F Candy Alpine Blue which is the same as the Big 800 1991-3.
Suzuki don`t use Mansell codes which means paint manufacturers can`t match up the colours
I only know of one that can do your colour <URL url="http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colours.php#makeid=148&modelid=4452&prodyear=1993&colourscheme=9510"><LINK_TEXT text="http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colour ... cheme=9510">http://www.rsbikepaint.com/en-gb/colours.php#makeid=148&modelid=4452&prodyear=1993&colourscheme=9510</LINK_TEXT></URL> but you are looking at £109 per litre or £20 for a tin of aerosol.

Tank has some rust, plastics are good, but not cleaned up yet. New decals coming from italy when funds available, there grubby, wheels need refurbishing and a new screen. Front brake needs re bleeding . All in all, happy with the bike. Just need to Tax, insure & M.O.T the bike soon.

(Shhhhh, it's not an Arrow pipe)

Bet you're delighted Thumbup The frame looks so white, shes looking like new! How's she pulling with the new can? Will you fit the shiny header?


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 04-05-2020

I have the Hesslar header so this will be fitted in due time. But not done more than 2 miles with lock down on standard pipe.

Upload the app, maybe, or definitely

They are a nicely polished piece alright. Hopefully this shyte fecks off and we start living the way we want once more.
The tracking app?, I will in my sh1te download it lol.


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 09-05-2020

I mig welded a 2 inch piece of pipe to my original header and it worked a treat. I'd lost the end to rust. I'll fit the s/s header at some point.
I've literally only ridden it 2 miles . My TT600RE is insured etc, so I probably won't bother with the DR untill we can ride out a proper distance. It felt great on my one ride though and now it has air in the tyres, should be even better Big Grin

The Yamaha TTR will be sold at some point, it's a great bike, but way to cramped for me. DR is so much roomier.

Hi,
Good luck with MOT,a mate is a bike tester, he told me the most common fail point on a refurb bike is the horn!
So simple but often overlooked. Weather for weekend is good aswell.
Cheers.


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 21-05-2020

Lol, ironically, the horn is sitting on the seat to remind me to fit it before Saturday MOT Big Grin

Hi,
Nice dr650 there you must be chuffed,note your post elsewhere ref Montana Motorcycles.
Xbaker Bob got his DR800 from him he is quite fair and those DRSs are usually in good nick,plus bob told me the import process is easy now.
Cheers.
