    Cool Suzuki vx800 semi restoration (one of a kind , rare bike )

    ]Salam brothers . i recently purchased a suzuki vx800 4 months back MashAllah. It was produced from 1990 to 1997 only . its one of the rarest suzukis of the modren era due to its limited production scale . It originally was in chrome and red color but the previous owner neglected this beauty and for some reason painted this bike black and removed the chrome -_- . it had a few problems but was too good to let go


    just over a week ago as dad got free from work and stuff finally . we decided it was time to start it and after several tries and charging the battery we managed to get it started . How ever being an old mechanic my dad instantly noticed that something was wrong , the master cylinder was giving an odd noise , he concluded it was the tapet .

    how ever after shutting it off , we couldnt start it again even after several tries , my dad being an expert mechanic in his younger days as he rode and owned a 1938 harley and a triumph in the 80s and did almost all of their mechanical works him self , so he decided to do a small restoration to my surprise ( as it had been 20 years since he last assembled an engine ) . we started to search the web to locate its self starter in its manual . we disassembled the upper body , and disassembled the water cooling system to open up the self starter box after locating it . He took out the starter and diagnosed it with a worn out bush and a problem in the electrical system , the celulite was worn out as well . we managed to fix the starter by purchasing a few parts and got a new hevier celulite . now came the bigger part we had to disassemble the whole first cylinder to fix the tapet. after 3 days of going thru the manual dad finally was able to fix the tappet viberations and reassemble the engine god knows how , im a complete noob to]mechanical works .
    here are a few pics of the bike being fixed by dad and after completion , including one from the karachi sunday track , me riding it finally MashAllah

    By the look of it...... it seems like VX shares the same V-twin we see in an intruder.
    Nice Machine you got there.
    Bikes don't leak oil, they mark their territory.

    well my friend recently got a ZZR 400 , he lives right in front of my house , so the other day he was teasing me that just because his bike is an inline 4 cylinder 16 valve super bike and mine is a vtwin 8 valve one with out any fairing i would loose : P , so we were leaving for the sunday track for the first time on both bikes , he pulled the throttle and soon after so did i , i blasted past him with my tyre slipping due to a sudden burst of power for which i had to decrease the throttle , i was surprised quite honestly even if its a 800cc

    braking is beyond good . stops pretty fast with out slipping .

    ok guys now that the bike is in top condition , i and my dad were talking about turbo charging the thing , as its done with many vtwins , the exhaust has quite a huge blow and if its done into 2 into 1 system it will make a huge amount of pressure enough for the turbo . any info on turbo kits available for bikes in pk ? dad says a 1000cc charade turbo could work , since he has been fitting turbos in engines all his life lol , but he suggests it might be a bit big for the bike . Tho we could get it cheap here in Karachi sher-sha but i wanted to save the hassle and get a kit
