Howdy folks. For reasons of dharma, I currently have on the bench the engine out of my 2001 Suzuki GZ250. Some idiot ran it out of oil (to be honest, it hasn't used a skerrick in the last six months, then ate a litre in 2 weeeks - no visible leaks or evidence in the exhaust. I suspect there is more to this than mere tardiness). I have approached several wreckers in the outer East Melbourne suburbs about a replacement, but they all stare blankly, then shake their head slowly. Ok, the hard sell bit. If I am going to be forced to rebuild this sucker, does anyone know what can be done to get more speed / power at the the top end? (No "put a Honda in it", please). The bike always had (just) enough acceleration from the lights for me at this stage of my riding learning curve, but it struggles to get from 90kph to 100kph. On a flat surface and no wind, it takes 25 seconds to get from 100kph to 110kph. On a slight incline, the top speed is curtailed significantly, generally requiring a kickdown. Ok, ok, at 6'1" and 100kg I make a good parachute for the poor beast, but short of drilling holes in myself to reduce mass and surface area, I am stuck with this. I would hate to have to catch a train to the coffee nights. Thanks.
