Hello everyone, I'm new to dirtbikes and I purchased an older Suzuki 80ds for 50$ cdn. The only problem with it is the clutch is not working very good, but anyways that's another question for another time. Here it is.

I can't determine what year the bike is or the model (allthough I'm almost 100% sure its a 80ds.
I have the serial number off the engine:

T575-19709

Thank you kindly,

Brad

P.s If pictures are needed I can get them.

can't remember exactly so I'm sure someone will chip in and correct me but it should be either the 10th or 11th digit of the VIN that tells year of model.

That looks to be a mid 70's TS 75 rather than a DS 80.
DS 80's had a high pipe that ran above the engine, that
was a more upright design and they came along about
1979/80. The TS 75's had a forward head design with a
pipe that ran under the engine and upward, along the
rear frame section, and I think they stopped making them
around 1977/78.

At the risk of stepping on some toes, you might give this place
a call; TJ Parts Express in Toledo, Ohio, their phone is
419-478-7195. About two years ago I couldn't even get a top
end gasket kit for a 80' RM 125 ordered anywhere, called them
and they stocked it, give them the CC# and they sent it right
out, no problems.
