Sr 42 tank

Postby guru » Tue Mar 13, 2018 10:06 pm

Looking for a Sr 42 (I already own a Sr 43) I read this:

''If you have long legs, the form of the gasoline tank could make your life a bit miserable. You knees simply wouldn’t fit into the sunken tank sides. The problem was solved in 1991 year’s model when the gasoline tank was totally redesigned''
http://www.suzukicycles.org/All-Suzuki/ ... odels.html

As I am 1.90m do you guys believe I would have a problem with this issue? There is a couple of bikes that I could get at a really low price, but now I have to think about it because I have to travel about 600 km just to check them out..
Thanks

I`m 1.98 and have owned models from every year and still have an SR41 42 and 43.
I`ve never had a problem with fitting onto any of them with regard to tank size.
To accommodate my long legs I got this guy http://tonyarcher.co.uk/services/bike-seats/ to build up my seats by 3 inches (8cm)
There have been plenty of posts on this forum about how uncomfortable the standard seats are.
The SR43 is a better designed bike, but the 41 and 42 are a lot lighter.
Go and buy yourself a 42 and have fun :tup:

Whoever wrote that must have been from another planet as I also have never noticed an issue with the tanks. But I do have issues with my knees :lol:
