It was found hiding at the back of a dealerís showroom having been stood for a couple of years (thatís all heís admitting to anyway!). When I looked at it, it was very dirty and tatty with a ripped seat cover and broken screen. It was fitted with a very noisy and illegal straight-through pipe but that was replaced by a modified, chrome Jama silencer and a Nonfango carrier. Iím not sure to what degree the rear suspension unit is working but it has a range of settings from very hard to ******* hard!! The only time that it really feels comfortable is when two-up.
Changes? Iíve replaced the standard screen with a tinted Ďflipí screen and fitted oversize Battlax BT45ís front and rear. Front is 110/90x16 and rear is 130/90x17. Other than that the bike is pretty standard...
Hello..............My name is Joe and I live in Jersey, Channel Islands, Great Britain.
In 1985 I bought a brand new Suzuki
XN85D Turbo. Where I was suprised with the handling of the bike!
I did a trip from the U.K down to Portugal and this bike was a fantastic ride. I left this bike at my Fathers house when I came to Jersey in 1992. I saw advertised another Suzuki XN85D Turbo and purchased that one aswell. So that made two bikes that I owned. In 1996 I bought a THIRD Suzuki XN85D Turbo, which I had modified by a company in Coventry, to increase the output to 220 bhp. I started racing with this bike doing hill climbs and sprints, getting a record in my class of 10.32 seconds! Very quick indeed..................
Last year I purchased ANOTHER!! Suzuki XN85D Turbo, now being my fourth bike. One bike is used for racing and three for the road, all standard factory colours apart from the race bike, as you can see by the photo's below. They are all very quick but also very heavy, not that brilliant on hill climbs.
