I think they were about £55.00 front and £50.00 rear, including seals and boots etc. So not cheap, but in my case, essential.

Hi H_L
Had a buddy from my school days staying this weekend, so not much done. I did manage to get the loom connected up. Fitted the the battery , tail light on, high beam indicator on dash working, no headlight. Early days.
I want to be riding by May so I have to move the pace up somewhat. Banghead
Rear caliper tonight and probably connect up the front brake.

Hi all
has anyone got the plastic speedo cable clamp/guide that I could buy ? It sits half way down the lower fork leg and stops the cable flapping about. Mine should be white but I don't have one, but any colour will do.

I've looks like it's been discontinued with Suzuki and I can't ant find one on line.

Suzuki part number is 3493844B010JW (if I'm not mistaken)

Got this fithy specimen to clean up now.......

One good thing, wiring all connected and everything works as it should, remarkably. Just got to spend some time cableing it onto the frame properly.

How'r we getting along Rob? Ya drawing closer to that all important first post refurb ride :clap:


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 08-03-2020

Haha, not yet. Not touched the bike for two weeks. I have got the rear caliper refurbished and fitted. I have still to degrease/clean the engine for painting then I can fit that.
In reality there's not that much to do.
Must try harder :D

I hope your all OK and happy Easter.

I finally got my engine cleaned and painted. Hopfully fit it into the frame tomorrow. It's not the best paint job I've done , but passable for now. New exhaust studs, rubber carb manifold, sprocket & 2 x iridium spark plugs.

What paint did you use on the engine?


Re: Here is my old DR650RS - bigrob - 13-04-2020

Hi Bob
I used this stuff from ebay. Used it on many engines. Bakes hard with heat. If your prep is good (smooth) it looks as good as factory. I was lazy so it's not the best finish, also, if you do many lighter coats, it comes out more satin. Good stuff though,
