........ No ............

But it's close.

The re-assembly is mostly complete so I pulled it out on the driveway for a couple pics:








The seat cover is not attached as my staple gun is not strong enough to go through the plastic seat bottom. I'm starting to like the purple/yellow with the black. What do you guys think?

The rear wheel still needs to be machined. I haven't had time to bring it back to the shop.

After I took the pics I put the factory rear wheel back. I also worked on the caliper relocation bracket for the front. It's about 90% done. Just need to make a trip to Lowes for some bolts. Then... test drive around the block.

Good news is that it starts from cold in 4-5 kicks!

New deadline, March 15th. Fingers crossed...

You might have some trouble getting that thing to hook up.

It's looking great. I really wanted 17" spoked wheels for my XR moto project but the cast wheels were a zillion times cheaper, and once I had them on I decided they looked awesome.

Sweeet!

Wow, This is awesome!
I got a non-running, very cheap Dr350 with a 440 kit. I now want to convert it to a supermoto! Ohhh decisions....
Thanks for all the details. Can't wait to see this complete. Good luck.

Now April 8, still not done. But...

The front brake setup is finalized, the rear wheel setup is finalized and painted. I just need to turn a couple spacers (on Wednesday) and the tires should be here sometime next week. I ordered BT003's in 110 front and 140 rear....

Pic of my fancy new rear brake, thined and re-cut to original DR size. After that pic was taken I replaced the screws for lower profile ones that do not hit the caliper mount. The wheel has also been cut to move the rotor inboard by 5mm:



Sprocket side. New hardware, new sealed bearing, machined lip for clearance:






I'm ordering BT003's in 110 front and 140 rear....


I rode the bike about 30 miles so far, power is good but jetting is a bit rich and gearing is too low with the dirt wheel. The motard wheel should turn about the same revs so I may go with a bigger front sprocket. I also need to do an oil change and adjust the valves again. The bike WILL be on the road by the end of the month.

I always wanted to do a DR350 SM with the 440 kit from procycle. I even thought about selling my SMC to finance it. Some RM forks, try to find one of the old ohlins shocks for it, and the big bore, I figured I could build the SM no manufacturer seems willing to. It's cool to see your progress, keep it up!

Ta-daaa!













Still needs a little carburation tuning but it is FUN!
I am ordering a 15T front sprocket to try slightly higher gearing. Feels a little low right now. I'll put about 200 miles on it and re-check the valves.

Now if I could just get the title for it...

What tires are those? What size is the rear? My g/f has a GS500 and I'm always looking for decent rubber for it for trackdays.

Nice job! I really like how the front fender looks though I'm not a fan of the color scheme.
