Suzuki Samurai – Modified Version

September 20th, 2007 rayboy Leave a comment Go to comments


I own a Suzuki Samurai Motor Bike - 1998 Model in Goa- India. and it has been my travelling  companion since College time. It is a modified bike, with a partial shogan engine i had given it to a friend’s garage to make it an extremely powerful bike for indian roads.

It was launched with an ad campaign of a “NO PROBLEM” bike .. and it lived up to its tag line. It is truely a no problem bike.

Its true specs are a 99.1 CC bike , 2 stroke engine, 4 Manual gears, with a power lever kick start bike. My Friend who masters bikes engines .. manage to modified it into a 150 CC engine , 2 stroke and 4 power manual gears strength, with Dirt road power shocks.

Now this might look like a cycle if compared to Ducati and others. But i would bet that the Ducati and others will not be reach its High speeds on Indian Damaged roads. Riding on Indian Roads , is like riding on a dirt road track. if you are a Speed racer( like on Kuwait smooth roads) , then Indian Roads would be a riding hell. You have to dodge road holes, water puddles, cows, buses and worse is we have to dodge people who roam the roads and the loaded traffic jams.

This bike, has helped me in tough spots, instant emergencies and life threatening situations.  The Bike Mileage is 60 kms per Litre of petrol. Unfortunately Suzuki has stopped this bike .. and have launched its successor called TVS Suzuki Victor which isnt so powerful like the Suzuki Samurai.

    had the privilege of being gifted one and am trying to maintain it,

    you are most encouraging with your comments; I recently had the

    bore changed, going easy for now, I am sure it’s going to be great

    after tuning up and attending to the suspension issue.

    yes its cool,as im a auto mobile engineer ,i had a doubt,wether u also modified the gear box, cause the gear box is designed acording to the BHP of the engine,u had modified the 100cc to 150cc,so the BHP will increased than b4,my bike also samurai,im also need modify wich u had done,

    phil: the guy i deal with is Ex-Suzuki Engineer , it took him quite a while to get it done. im not an Auto Engineer, so i dont know what he did. but the outcome is great!…

    i shot him an email to come online on the blog to answer some queries. He is not an IT fan, so he should take a day or 2 to reply.
