Default TS185 Build

Ok decided to move this over to the project section. And since I got rid of the r6 its time to do some work so i can have something to ride when it warms up.

Pulled my 1st bike I ever had outta the shed . I took it apart when the magneto went out and the clutch was worn. Replaced the clutch and never got around to doin the magneto. Now I need to see if I can find the parts I took off years ago. Carbs still seems clean from the last time I did them. Engine still turns over, so thats good. Now time to hunt down the missing parts. I will need some new fork seals noticed they were leaking.

1975 Suzuki TS185. I got it from the original owner about 15years ago now. Still have the original title never been titled to anyone else.




But the rear fender was busted from the wind slamming a gate closed on it many a years ago.


So what else to do with a busted fender then bust out the sawzall.


I like how it came out. Need to figure out the color I want to go with. My just do the fenders in black or maybe go back with a silver like it came with. Not sure so toss out your opinions on that. Also took off the 2stroke oil container cover and puttied up some rough spots along with the fender.




And we are back to black on the fenders. Not sure what I want to do with the tank or the oil cover yet.


Did bedliner on the fenders and paint on the cover and will be on the tank too.




Tank is also painted black but that may change. Its almost to much black. I want to get a trail tech x2 light I think for it. Just ordered up a manual for it so I can get it put back together.

Have new fork seals
Manuals on its way
Gasket sets on its way

And I will prob order some new rings for it too cuz it was smoking back in the day.

Also goin run protaper bars and a single bar mount miiror on the left. Saw a ad on ebay for tappered roller bearings that are suppose to fit with no work. But cost bout $50 so not sure

Was browsing around ebay. and saw this tail, I think it would look good. Made out of aluminum and i think it was 140 shipped. Not to bad. Though I may just make one outta steel since I have a 10ft sheet of 16ga in the garage

well. got some foam for the seat. picked up a gallon of resin, ran out. was goin to lay down the mat tonite but the wife wasn't feeling good. and since our room is directly over the garage. didn't want to stink up the house when she wasn't' feeling good. but will do it tomorrow for sure. and was reading the manual and saw that the forks just take straight 30wt motor oil. so goin pick up some at walmart tonite when we go shopping.

When you do your forks, you might want to try 40w and 50w oil in them, it changes the damping and will help out tuning the suspension for the street.

And some adjustable damper shocks out back, seen 'em for pretty cheap on fleabay.

What are you planning on for the front tire and wheel setup? Leave that big ol' chopper size stocker on there or get a smaller wheel laced up?

yeah i was thinking of trying 40 but maybe 50w might be better. I weigh in at 260. But the stock rear shocks are adjustable and last I rode it they were still in good shape, so I'll cross that bridge later. I'm leaving the stock 19in wheel up front. 18in out back. but that 19in wheel limits my tire choices. But I'm leaning towards the bridgestone trail wing tires. While I'd prefer a more aggressive tread pattern for looks, this thing is goin be doing 95% street.
