I just ordered a new speedometer gear, a Pirelli MT43 front tire and a heavy duty tube to be paired with it.

how hard is it to put on a new tire and tube? Have never done it on a dirt bike before so I'm sure I'll find out soon. Do I need any special tools?

I'll be adding pictures soon
Welcome to the DR350 world. I ride the same year as you.

Tools: You'll need a couple tire spoons and I found this item makes tire changes much easier on the knuckles:
