1996 Suzuki
RGV250SP VJ23 Converted Full Power.

I am selling
yet another one of my prize bikes from my collection. It was my rejuvenation project during lockdown as it had been sitting in my garage for a
while. I bought this bike around 2006 at a motorcycle auction in Japan in good stock running condition. It was a Japanese domestic model. I spent great amount of money to have the bike shipped state side and
get it titled. I have owed several of these bikes over the years and am quite
familiar with them. Had 2 other full power models already which I have sold.  The Suzuki RGV250SP VJ23 really represents the last of the 2 stroke street
bikes that were made. I know Aprilia still sold RS250??s into the early 2000??s,
but they were with the older Suzuki VJ22 motors. The VJ23 was an improvement of
that. I often wondered why Aprilia didn??t start using the VJ23 motors in their bikes? WIth the VJ23's dry clutch and electric starting it would have been an upgrade for Aprilia. I guess either Suzuki didn??t want to make them or it was too much trouble to adapt the Aprilia??s to make it fit?

This bike
had 7,200KM or 4,300 miles on it at the time of purchase. Then I went through at great expense
to convert it to the full power model. I purchased brand new, not used, at
great cost, the full power speedo gauge assembly (240KPH speedo), full power black box,
air box lid, clutch springs and finally set of Jolly Moto pipes. The Jolly Moto
pipes were not the best fitting with the bodywork, but do they preform outstanding and look
great! Carburetors re-jetted accordingly. Then I rebuilt the top end using the
full power pistons. They have a different coating on them to help avoid detonation
at higher speeds. I installed new clutch plates for the dry clutch, new racing 26mm thick
radiator, steering damper, wave rear disk, chain, Steel brake lines with Aluminum
fittings, silicone radiator hoses, new chain and sprockets, a fortune in titanium, aluminum and stainless bolts. All jetted just right. Just recently I rebuilt the front
forks using all new seals and bushing, all new brake fluid and gear oil, new
air filter, Brake pads, Front Turn Signals, hoses, and a fresh set of sticky Dunlap Q3??s. Clean the
carburetors added a new factory petcock and Lithium battery. All the switches, lights, turn signals, starter, horn operate without a problem. Oil injection is still intact. This bike is not all corroded out or full of oxidation like many of these bikes from Japan. Very Clean.

The bodywork
on it looks fine for a bike it's age, but not museum quality. There are small
scratches, chips around the bike. All minor stuff. Please look at the pictures. The bottom right
fairing has some ???waves??? from getting hot. That was there when I purchased the
bike. Side panels are nice but a mark here and there. The tank is excellent shape.
No dent and clean inside with a new factory petcock just installed. Paint is still shiny and
bike looks great overall. Remember its 25 years old. Though this bike looks stunning, I built it to
be a runner not a museum piece. It really runs great and once you hit redline in third
with a little speed and air flow the ram air really kicks in and the bike accelerates
hard. Much better than my VJ22. Less temperamental with the jetting.

The bike
shows about 2,130 KM or 1,250 miles on it with the new speedo installed.
Remember it has 7,200KM or 4,300 miles when I bought it. So do the math for the
total. Still the 1,250 miles represents all the mileage I have put on it since
I converted the bike to full power and installed the new top end.  Not much. I love this bike but realized, one
I have too many bikes sitting around, and second I??m just too old at social
security age to be hauling around on it anymore.

The bike is sold without any warranty or
guaranties. Any crating, shipping is the
responsibility of the buyer. I will assist if possible. Also available to visit
and examined in person. Bike comes with a current Florida registration (good
until 4/2022) and title but is located in Southern California.  Test rides only allowed with full cash
deposit in hand. Only cash or certified cashier??s check from US bank accepted.
Funds must be cleared to accept delivery.  How often you see one of these for sale in this
condition, full power, with all these extras and titled too? Try to find another? These
bikes are only going to increase in value as time passes. Serious buyers feel
free to e-mail for more pictures and information.   I??ll be more than happy to answer all questions.
I understand this is a major purchase. Thank you for looking.
