Well its all there!
I'm getting ready to rebuild the front forks.
Will add Race Tech springs, new seals (while its apart mite-as-well replace them).
Drain and flush fork oil.
This is the electric start model.
Now if I could just LOWER it 2" I'd feel better!
Need to service the rear shock as well.
I have new bar's, hand guards, and foot pegs for it too.

I'm looking for a Larger than stock fuel tank as well.

ya they need heaver springs dont they! I dont have a big tank right now laying around. Ive had 4 DR 350s,out of all the tanks out there I like the IMS 3.5 the best, while your at it replace the bogus stock petcock, it has that vaccuume thingy in it that sooner or later screws up and causes all sorts of swearing, and money before you figure it out!!
Oh ya, have ya done the jet kit yet?

Sorry it's been so long in getting back to you.

I replaced the stock petcock with a Yamaha petcock. Bolted right-up!

Then, I replaced the Tank with an Acerbis 4.25 gallon. (0n sale)

Got rid of the purple (barney) seat cover. Shaved the seat foam a little.

Installed carb jet kit.

Sent exhaust to Klein Engeneering.

New cables and throttle tube. Pro-Taper bars.

Rebuilt rear shock

Rebuilt front shocks and added Race Teck springs.

New wider foot pegs.

New chain and sprockets

New Klein Engeneering Chain guide.

Added rack

Acerbis hand guards and EMGO clutch lever assembly 2-piece perch. (Suzuki is out-of stock)

Added turn signals (4)

Shinko dual sport tires next (I gotem, just need to put'em on). MSR tubes

Moose front fender bag (not installed).

Kouba links for the rear

All Balls racing Bearing kit for the steering head and rear suspension link

New brake pads both ends





Looking for a Complete set of wheels BOTH ends!

I want to mount my Knobbys on a spare set of wheels and keep the Dual Sport Shinko's for lite off-road/road fun.

Looks almost the same as my 99. I cut the rear mount tabs off the rack and welded on longer ones since I wanted it closer to level. Mounted the little, super flexible led turns from ProCycle to tabs welded on it. Noticed my chain guard is busted the other day so I'll have to get another. I went with the Acerbis also since it has 2 petcocks, yaay.

PostSubject: Turn Signal Suggestion...   11/11/2014, 6:58 am

I found a idea I've used on my 650 VStrom. " Buell Ulysses" turn signals. Flexable rubber mounted, Reflector behind the bulb makes them brighter the stock Strom and, they are only $15.00 each! They use bullet connecters. It was EZ to adapt them to the Stroms wire harness.
just a little soldering. They would work great on our DR's.

I have them on the front of my VStrom. $15.00 ea. V.S. $58.00 ea. for the VStroms
And when I bust the ebay copies on the DR350es, I'll be replacing with Buell's signals.
