He probably uprated the suspension. So thats the water cooled one. Would be good to see the otherside of the bike to see the radiator arrangement with the bigger tank. Someone rode a TS125ER in the Daker one year too. Well technically it was a Peugeot but they are pretty much a Suzuki, I think they used engines from Suzuki and the rest of the stuff eg plastics are very similar.

I like to see these older shots when you just pretty much got a bike and just get out there and ride, unlike these days if it aint the latest thing then you rarely see anything else.

Cheers Mick.

Your a long time dead, so get out there and enjoy yourself while you still can :-) would loved to have been able to race vintage enduro bikes in Victoria, but sadly that as yet has not happened, so many blokes would have loved to be able to race, owell shit loads of us still have the memory's of racing enduro bikes back in the late 70's and 80's, time to move on to other things I guess :-) but if racing classes for vinduro bikes start then I will dust off my bike and be out there racing my old bike as that is what it was made for ( Racing )

I'm in the process of rebuilding a 125 DTLC for someone, they're almost identical to the early DT200L (one is being used as a donor) very few differences actually.. the engine too is almost the same.. slightly larger crank on the 200.. these engines have a balance shaft the drive chain on the left of the engine and the reeds feed into the barrel... the closest relation is the 200 blaster quadbike.. which is a DT200L bottom end with an aircooled barrel.

the bore and stroke is the same as an IT125/DT125.. I believe the wiseco piston kit for an IT125 is the one for the DTLC..

they still made them in Brazil up until the late 90's so parts are available..

Cheers!
