I just bought a s/h imported Suzuki DR250S (I'm in the UK and this
is a Jap import). It's in great condition and all appears to be OK
except a couple of things. Whilst the bike seems to run fine, it
does seem a little under-powered to me, but I'm new to this so I'm
not sure. On the flat (road) I can hardly get the bike over
60mph...surely it should go somewhat faster than that. Now, to be
fair, I do weigh in at 220 pounds, so this will of course have some
effect...but 60mph...it's got to be better than that?
One other thing, when I dethrottle, the revs do not always die off
properly - I've checked the throttle cable and this is returning
correctly, so I assume it's something to do with the carb. I'm not a
mechanic but keen to learn, so bear with me if the answer is obvious.
Any answers/suggestions (and don't say 'lose weight'!!)would be
