Hi everybody! I am the happy owner of the Suzuki Dr 250 in the picture above! I bought it two years ago, 1000 €, that is less than 1500$, for off road & trail riding mostly. I also own a BMW F650GS 08 Twin, for the everyday use. I do not know the exact year and model because the bike was imported to Greece in 2000, so before that it’s a mystery! The bike’s frame number is SJ44A-105067 anyone has a clue? When I first bought it, it had serious carb problems. It was hell to make it start, and when you did, it stopped any time.. Reading this forum and speaking with my mechanic, made me buy the Mikuni Tm-33 pumper carb (I ordered it from the states) that resolved the problem at once! Now that the winter season is over (I only use it in winter, summer is too hot for off road riding here in Crete), I am planning to do some major maintenance at this poor old bike that has offered my so many hours of pure pleasure! I want to make her pieces, inspect every part, change some things that are broken or very used, paint the frame and the tank, and whatever else will pop up during maintenance. Anyone can tell if where can I find these plastic fork guards that are half broken? I have been searching EBay two years now without luck.. But the major modification I would like to do is to increase the cylinder’s capacity. You see, my dream would be a Dr 350, but I cannot find a used one very easily.. I live in an island, that even though is big enough, the market of used bikes is not so big.. So I am thinking, can I increase the cylinder’s capacity somehow? I have heard other people here doing this in various bikes, but many have discouraged me telling me that it will only bring problems.. Is there a kit like the one for the dr350, the big bore kit, that makes it 441cc? If I find a used engine of a DR350, can it be fitted on a 250? Can anyone tell me how could I increase the power of this bike, without producing too many problems? Well, that’s enough for beginning, I will keep you informed how the maintenance project evolves!
