mavrik237's 1981 Suzuki DR 500

Purchased: Apr 2005
Sold: n/a
Information: I picked this bike up as part of my now abandoned Walton GP projects. I will attempt to use it in the Pro MX1 of the 2006 Canadian motocross championships. It currently sports DR-Z400 forks and Linkage-less Monoshock setup (that was tough!). It also has a custom built Twister Exhaust system and double high Maverick Bars. Made an astounding 50 hp on a chassis dyno with a fully ported/polished head, stainless valves (for longer life) and a custom ground "lumpy" cam on the exhaust side, with a pair of custom reed valves taking care of the intake side. Goes very fast! Used for taking down 450s. Due to a reduction in displacement, it now makes only 45 HP, but it torques like an XR650!
