Help please ID this motor

Hi
With the wealth of knowledge on here I am hoping someone can help ID this motor for me.









All I know is that its a Suzuki two stroke and it was in a mates garage when he moved into his house.
I cant find any ID or serial number but as all the ones I have seen have been stickers I am not really surprised.

Any help or advice appreciated
All the best
Mike

Thanks for you reply Garf. Other than DT 3.5 I dont really understand your answer.

I have looked at DT 3.5 and all the motors I have found are all single plug,whereas this is a twin plug.

Or have I missed something?
Can you or someone else translate for an old bloke?
Thanks
Mike

Loosely translated Garf is saying. ' It's a DT 3.5 and the bloke in the shite flip flops needs to put a grinderette to those toe nails'. Does that help?

Why so personal? Have you something against suzukis or flip flops?

Or maybe its the ability to write plain english that everyone can understand that offends you.

Can anyone answer the other question Ie. why if this is a DT 3.5 does it have twin plugs?

No trolls need apply

DT4 or DT5, from late 1970s, as Garf says DT3.5 is single cylinder.

Mollers is jealous, 'cos his flipflops don't have fancy detailing.

I wouldn't bother - they're just plain black, probably from TK Maxx.

From my mate Keith @Freeriders if you don't mind. Got 'em cheap as they are size 13 and trimmed 'em down with a jigsaw.

mike i am quite new here as well, its just banter between long standing members of the forum, really you should not take offence because i dont think its intended to be offensive, and posting an indignant response just tends to highlight your ignorance if you see what i mean
if you fail to understand garfish posts read more, it will soon become clear
reading it makes me think he is from walsall

Like everyone else here I am sure you would grow to love garf and smile at his posts. He normally makes particularly cutting/witty comments, and on this occassion you recieved the rate honour of actually getting some "technical comment too". Just so you know the forum doesn't normally accept "text speak" but Garf has special dispensation.
