Hello everyone, I have had this bike for approximately 1 year now. It has had the barbs off last week to do some work on as it developed a misfire and was poring fuel out of the carb overflow due to a carb issue. Had them dismantled and ultrasonic cleaned and they are on and running again just fine. The pipes are new (second hand) due to the old ones going rusty, the bike looks better in the photos than in real life. Please don't mock my top box it means I can go to work on it everyday and take essentials. I like the bike despite its lack of power, I owned a Yamaha R6 before so a bit different but love the look of this. Just as an owner I am concerned over where to buy replacement parts as no here seems to stock anything for the sachs so its understanding the components that make up the bike and here they originate from, I.e. like the engine being a donor from the Suzuki VS800. I look forward top your comments and suggestions on part replacement sites that may be beneficial. regards Richard

great bike!! I find plenty of time searching on the internet will give you a list of places to get parts from sometimes I type in what I'm after and then look at images then tap on them and open up the page from the image  that works quite well sometimes anyway like I said nice bike mate  Sachs Roadster 800  184121345

Hi,
I have one too. This website is invaluable, especially finding fork seals that will fit
http://www.sachs-biker.de/ 

Your bike is an early one, with red front caliper, twin radiator and chrome instrument bracket. Later ones were grey with a single large radiator

Fairings either side of tank/radiator, seat and the tank itself are the hardest things to find. Rest is ebay. Even the front discs are now made by a company in France. 

For me I've had many types of bike, but the special ones can't be used daily for fear of being stolen. The rest of my wish list (and how i ended up choosing Sachs). I value ground clearance, decent tyres and parts availability;

BMW R1100s (couldn't find a cheap one and read stories about FI problems)
Sachs Roadster 800 (luckily found at a great price)
Vx800- only it's mother would like the way it looks. Most are really used/abused
Honda Bros NT650- Had the NT400 for a while, but small frame, soft forks and no shaft drive
Yamaha Bulldog BT1100- Ticks all boxes, but some complain of a handling flaw and air cooled engine, so don't fancy long stints in traffic
Moto Guzzi Griso- Perfect if cheap enough, will forgive air cooled in favour of kudos and looks

Hi,
I think this bike could do with it's own page...
