Suzuki K11 Sport 80
Owner: Ryan Taylor, Cape Town South Africa
Comments: I own a Suzuki K11 Sport 80 that my dad found
on a farm where it hadn't been used since new. It was in pretty
bad shape but it only had 1 mile on the clock. We did quite
a bit of work on it as the big end was seized. I now use it
every day to go to school and back, its a really nice bike to
are a few pictures of my bike in as found condition. Although
it looks much better now, it still needs a lot of work to be
done to it before I can say that it is restored.
Unfortunately the master picture wasn't very good quality but
you can just make out the 1 mile on the clock.
Notice the mixing ratio sticker, that's original! I made a copy
of it and printed it on sticker paper so I could save the original.
is 20% of the original size that I scanned it, if anyone is
looking for a copy just refer them to me and I can send them
the large version witch looks just as good as the original.
sticker on the wiring of my bike said 1964. The fuel and oil
has to be pre-mixed unlike the later posi-lube engines. My bike
has a sticker just below the brake light that only appeared
on early pre-mix models.
anyone is looking for info on small Suzuki bikes then refer
them to me as I have wiring diagrams and other info for Suzuki
M12, M15, M15 D, M30 Suzy scooterette, K10 and K11 machines.
This info is in a book I have called The Book of Suzuki (1967)
It has helped me enormously with getting my bike going.
looks a lot better in these pictures but still far from restored.
Most of it is complete except for a few things like the left
side cover which was missing and the carburettor cover. I was
able to use a side cover from a B120.
other day my bike just wouldn't go, my father helped me to trace
the fault to the electrical system. We found that the condenser
had died so we proceeded to try and find a replacement. Parts
for these bikes are impossible to find in Cape Town but luckily
we were able to use a condenser from a car and just modify it
slightly. I know that there are parts available overseas but
they would cost me a fortune with the weak value of the Rand
to the Dollar and Pound.
