DR500 - Teasers

Had some more photos of the DR sent to me.

DR500 - Soon

Soon this Suzuki DR500 will be here. It will need a wee bit of assembly. The tank and tracker seat come with it. Exactly what I would have done to it anyway.

How it went to the previous owner Daniel. 

What Daniel has done so far. 

Bender - One big eye

Now that's a headlight. 9" off an SR500.

Bender - In touch with nature

Took Bender out for first dirt ride with me on board.
Not since the 1980s have I taken a bike onto dirt roads.
That front tyre needs to be more of an off road on.
I had a ball exploring Ourimbah Creek road.

Bender - Back to bare.

Big ugly crash bars fitted. All the crap I put on taken off. Plastic guards front and back. Just waiting on a set of MX bars and a 9 inch SR500 headlight coming in the mail.

Bender - Shiny new chain sprockets

3 Dec 2016. Full oil and oil filter change. Valvoline XLDPrem 20w-50. Highflow oil filter
New DID 525VX 118ZB chain and new sprockets fitted.
