Ek het nog nooit die XT500 gery nie, maar n pel van my het op n tyd n XT550 gehad, hy was net so bliksem om aan die brand te skop soos my DR600.

So with some restrictions lifted and some businesses being allowed to start operating this week I could finally get a much needed chain and sprocket kit for my GS and installed it yesterday.

 

Also the grips are a bit mushy, I think it might be normal grips fitted over the heated inners that didn't stand the test.

Quick cost effective fix was to put some cricket bat grips on for the time being. Just need to remember not to use the heating feature.

 

Ps: when installing the sprockets yesterday I found three teeth missing on the rear presumably after an earlier quick rip down to the shops and back that might've included a wheelie or two.74ad8ab016c0ab771f0af34f7626a1ce.jpga984856ac37915c1622261dd20ef8199.jpg22cf3c4cf9276d4c064f088c7cc2ec58.jpg95692313a2021ae2a9e2e113bdc4a823.jpg

Saw this ad on Facebook. I had one like this. 9156198041b486dc2be150234f261357.jpg

How do so many bike owners not have papers for their bikes...? Seems to be quite a common thing looking through Gumtree and bike sales.

Always makes one wonder why they don't have papers? Something skelm or what's the story. [emoji3166][emoji848]

Ja they say if you remove three teeth from your rear sprocket you get a higher top speed  :whistling:

That is also why the SRAD's nearly vanished in SA, they were not as hard as the previous Presling's and Slingshots.

 

I have had a number of suzukis in my life...not ever experienced a terminal failure event. However, i have never subjected any of them to real abuse...except my 50cc when i was young and mechanically dumb. 

 

I had an SRAD 750 with Arrow pipe , 98 model FI...fantastic beast...  wish i had kept that one.

I used every opportunity I could to go buy bread and milk, the long way round.[emoji16]

When I got my first 125, I was the same. 3 or 4 times a day I would go to the cafe to buy bread or milk, always making sure I “forgot” an item that I was sent to get. Our milk stash looked liked a Karen’s toilet paper stash.

They are excellent bikes and the motots are able to withstand some punishment, if you keep them moving.

This redline "fireworks" game wasn't their strong point.
