1981 Suzuki DR500 tank emblem dimensions

Recommended Posts

Rebuilding a DR500 need the measurements for the tank emblems. Letters and the taping length. Trying to get the decals made to look original. Thanks?

Sorry the top tank is the one I need but both would be nice. Looks like bottom tank stickers would be easier to put on?

Sent a pic of the top tank which I need the measurements for but if you have both that would be cool. My uncle Arthur keeps me from exact measurement plus had a needle stuck from c-2 through c-7 yesterday so limits me a little. Once the bike is done I will just chug pills and ride, ride ride!

Thank you so much, looking for the red and orange but for price blue is fine. Have a company drawn the red and orange up but no $ yet we shall see. Once again thanks for the big help!

Those orange and red decals are sweet... Just picked up a 1982 dr500 2 days ago with the white and blue decals.  Runs like a champ but is in really rough shape cosmetically... don't happen to know where to find an extra tank or plastics do ya? Saw 2 tanks on ebay, one in rough shape and other w rust inside.  Looks like Clarke doesn't make dr500 tanks. Alternatively do u know of any tanks off other bikes that would fit?

I looked and looked for the red stripes, a company was drawing me some up but the price was $159. I went with the blue from Diablocycles. Clarke does make a tank, look at the Universal. Put one on my 81 DR500, looks great!
