“It stood for 10 years”

Tony Fit­ton 1989 Suzuki RGV250 VJ21

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - 2t Trackday -

“I’ve been get­ting my VJ21 back to­gether for the last cou­ple of years af­ter buy­ing it from a mate who had stored it for the pre­vi­ous decade.

“I stripped it all down my­self and sent the crank to Grampian Mo­tors for a re­build and the bar­rels went to Lang­court for re­plat­ing.

“A mate who is a for­mer BSB me­chanic put it back to­gether for me with new reed valves and pow­er­valves from The Tun­ing Works. Th­ese Ja­panese-spec VJ21S are sup­pos­edly re­stricted but it’s go­ing well enough around Don­ing­ton for a re­cent build.”
