Who has some Christmas cash burning a hole in their pocket? Technology has probably long passed them by but what Suzuki project would not be just a bit cooler with some old works parts? Don’t you wish you lived in the UK to hit the Suzuki GP HQ yearly yard sale?
I know the picture shows Kenny Roberts Jr. but the seller claims these are forks off a XR79 RGV500. If that is the case, that would place them as 1993 models with Schwantz and Barros on the Team. I’m pretty sure they had moved on to Ohlins by the time Kenny joined the team as well. Who know’s how many sets of forks they would have cycled through in a year and we all know the settings would not be applicable but I wouldn’t turn my nose up at an opportunity to own a set if I had a applicable project waiting for them. The seller didn’t include any dimensions/specs on them unfortunately. He does mention they were also used some Kawasaki race bikes (I’m assuming ZXR’s) as well.
Asking price is 1,955 GBP
Have no fear if you like your factory parts more current. This set of Ohlins is claimed to come off of John Hopkins 2005 GSVR. The seller claims they even have a super secret Ohlins parts number (I embellished that a little). This seller did supply the numbers I’m sure you’d like to know if interested:
Tube length: 75mmUpper triple: 51mmLower triple: 56mmAxle hole: 30 mmCaliper bracket length : 108mm
For the 3,500 GBP price tag, I hope you have better luck with them than Hopper had.
