PostSubject: Only me !   Tue Nov 03, 2015 8:00 pm

Hi everyone. Accidental VX800 owner here. My names Pete Connelly and I was looking for a new (old!) bike. Needed a bit of upright due to an old (non bike) neck injury which reared its ugly head every time I went over 20 minutes on my (now sold) Triumph Daytona 955.

Never considered a cruiser, cos I don't like Harleys, and was never sure the Japanese could do one.
Wow! How wrong was I. A VX800 (1991) popped up and bang I was in the Suzuki 800 club. Fabulous bike. I am having untold fun. Needs a little tuning (I think it's restricted-so that will have to go!), but big smile on face and enjoying my biking for first time in a year or so.

Thanks for the welcome.

Question, Any one any idea what model number it might be (you know E 01/02 etc) ? The Vin number is; VS51A102899 and engine number S501-1060B8. Any other  clues I should be looking at ? Also I have a downloaded 'Service Manual' and a Haynes 'Suzuki Intruder, Marauder, Volusia '85 to '06 ' manual. Anything better out there for a newbie to both maintenance, fettling and Suzukis ?

Any help most welcome.

Glad your enjoying it Pete, and your story sports to jap cruiser is repeated all over this site, if only we had known sooner!
Someone will be along shortly with your answers this place is chocked full of guys who REALLY know 800's (just not me i'm the "gay" loud moufed cockney who inspires humour rather than intellect!)
Ps I'm not gay! warning don't let this lot know your weaknesses they pounce like lions hyst

Hi Pete  WELM you don't like Harley's eh?      

ps. just for future reference, if you could ask questions in the relevant sections you'll get more response, this is just a welcome section 

this'll give you more insight into vin numbers while you learn the ropes  Link and don't believe hawktheslayer, he is gay!

  Pete, &     

Great to see yet another VX800 has found an owner that 'gets it'

I don't like Harleys in particular ........ but have ridden them in the past, along with a myriad of other bikes, & besides the VX actually own an XR1200 .... which is a HD for those that don't like HDs !

Enjoy your VX, & the forum !

Cheers                         Yam

Welcome on board Pete - I moved over to a cruiser for more or less the same reasons, sore neck, sore back, sore arse (tho that had nothing to do with Gay Justin).  Enjoy your ride - you'll find people here will be able to point you in the right direction with any queries you may have (no more Justin jokes please)

Welcome on board Pete ... Don't take any notice of Sim's comment about HawktheSlayer. 

Justin's never slept with any gay man - but he did tell us that he has slept with a man who has
