Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Fettling -

For a cou­ple of glo­ri­ous years at the end of the 1970s, Suzuki’s X7 was the king of the 250s and the dream ma­chine for ev­ery learner in Bri­tain. Then Yamaha stole their thun­der with the RD250LC. What, we were won­der­ing, would a liq­uid-cooled X7 have been like? We’re putting a Mk3 250 Gamma mo­tor into an X7 chas­sis in an at­tempt to find out. Whether it’s ge­nius or ut­ter folly re­mains to be seen.
