If the DR350 is top heavy, like the DRZ400S, it probably feels like 50 lbs on the trails.
60 mpg sounds pretty good.
I weighed my "98 DR350se (legal, e-start) the day I got it. With half tank (~ 2 gallons) it was 302 lbs. I don't find it top heavy at all. Not like the KLRs. I'm 6'- 160lbs. On a recent trip, about 50/50 off road with some single track, it averaged 68mpg (other models/your results may vary) at 7k ft to 12k ft in the northern NM mountains. Motor is stock with stock gearing, and has 325 frt and 510 rear Kenda K270s.
