Hello,
I have spent some time on this board and have just picked up a 1969 Suzuki T-125 Stinger project bike. It needs quite a few parts to be put back into running condition. I was wondering if anyone had a wiring schematic? First blush on some parts are:

Seat foam and seat cover
Handle bar
Front fender
Ignition switch and fork lock with key.
Shift lever and kick starter
All the cables
Would like new point and condesor sets
Mirrors
Speedo and Tach
Clutch and brake lever

This is a first blush and I will disasseble it for a complete turn around. At the same time I am not into concurs correct, but just decent parts to make it a fun bike to ride around my lake area. It turns over, but I will dig into the engine to make sure it is ok. May need some engine parts at that time.

Anyone with any parts please let me know. I have seen some on Ebay. My phone number is (360) 377-5164 and I live in the Seattle area.

Rob

Hi Rob,

A great project :up:. The Stinger is unique in it's engine configuration for a road bike and as it was only in production for 2-3 years parts are going to take some searching for. One of the columnists in the UK magazine Classic Motorcycle Mechanics has been featuring his Stinger restoration off and on for a number of years (finally concluded in the Jan 2018 issue).

Good luck with the project, it will be worthwhile when you get it finished :up:

Cheers Geoff

I picked up a second T125 Stinger and now have some parts if someone needs them. I have pipes, a tranny, carbs, a frame, back fender and other small parts.

Hi all,
Been a little slow on putting up some videos! check it out. since this, I got a longer front brake cable and am still hoping to see the gauges in a month or so. It is painted "go green go" and as you can see I took some liberties on the paint scheme. I hope to chrome the stingers, heat silds and the headlight bracket and trim ring this winter. I have an original T-125 front fender, and may paint it green also. It runs awesome. Even carrying my 230 pound body around!! It was running a bit of premix at the time of this vid. It is now running solely on the oil injection system. Smokes a bit less now.

I love it also. :) In fact, a few years ago on another forum there was a 'Top ten bikes you would like to own' post and the Stinger was in my list along with a few Hondas and other makes.

Too cool. :up:

very, very cool! Sounds like you have some tuning to do though couldn't tell for sure but it sounded like it was one cylinder and when you would choke it the second would come alive. Might be a simple air screw adjustment.

I love them like two fizzy engines strapped together with up-swept exhausts - what's not to like?!

Err, the colour is very, ermm, 'vivid' isn't it?

Yup, you either hate the color or love it!! I will take no offense! It was cold in the vid and once warmed up it runs just fine on both cylinders! I have a decent rear and front fender that could be re-plated. We all know what re-plating costs these days. If you guys have a good source, I would like to re-chrome the stingers, heat shields, the headlight trim ring, and the headlight bracket.

Can't wait to get the gauges mounted!!

Rob

I have a transmission that is split apart. Not sure if it is all there. No crankshaft. I have two .050 over cylinders and the pistons and rings that were in them. Also the wrist pins and bearings. The first video on this thread was it running on them. I have two 1969 chrome exhaust pipes and heat shields. One baffle is damaged. No stinger cans on them. One capture nut for the heat shield is gone on each pipe. I left you a pm of a lot of frame and body parts I have. I also have a decent seat with the chrome trim that could be rebuilt with new foam and seat cover.


I have lots of odds and ends. Let me know what you might need!

Rob

These Suzuki T-125 parts are way cheap. Many for free if you pay shipping! Give me a call at (360) 377-5164. Or pm me for what you may want. Before I toss them in the trash.
