I've just bought a DR600 that has been standing under a cover for six years. I bought it because the XT500 that I bought a couple of weeks ago is a long term project and I have nothing to use on the road until that is restored.......
The DR600 turns over ok, has good compression and is generally looking fairly good. The carb is currently seized and I suspect is full of old petrol, so I will investigate in the next week or two.
I must admit that when I placed the wanted advert for an 'XT, XL or similar', a big Suzuki didn't spring to mind, but now I have it, I'm really looking forward to having a tinker with it.
Any comments, good or bad, about this bike?
I'm going to take it to the Uttoxeter Classic Bike Show at the weekend. Not that I see it as a classic necessarily, but it is 25 or so years old, so I'll put it on our VJMC South Staffs section stand in an 'As Found' condition to see what the opinions of the bike are.
