Front end of the bike is in peices again. This is the final assymbly of the RM fork swap. Kind of a bitch getting all the parts of the headset and triples just right. Jsut venting. Hoping to get her done so i can ride it to work on thrusday. Maybe even go for a real ride on Friday.

As a side note, was jsut doing some reading about the helmet lock on the DR350. Really. There was a helemt lock. I see one for sale on E-bay. Where would one install such a device. Was it a Candian thing, as both the reference and the e-bay seller are Canadian.

Thought I would share, as it is new to me info, and I thought I have been aroudn the DR block a few times to know about most things like this.

Jamm a stick between the frame rails so that it keeps the sprocket on. The chain will rub on the stick but it is good for a while.

Hope I never have to do this, but a good trick to remember.
Yes sir,it works to bring me in to the camp where i can put a new clip on.

My '92 DR350S came with one. There is a tab on the frame on the left side near the back that it bolts to - behind the stock tool holder.

Anyone have a feel for how much oil it takes to get from the bottom of the safe mark to the top on the DR350 dipstick?

Are you talking about over filling the bike? If so, it takes maybe 2-3 cups to overfill it. If you're talking about from the very bottom of the dipstick (low-level) to the appropriate "F" mark, the answer is the same.

I'm second guessing parting my 96 350se out which means I would be looking for parts. I'm putting this in the sales section too, but thought I would throw this out there

1) I either need a good electric start bottom end
2) Good piston and pin

OR

1) Good crankshaft
2) Good piston and pin

If I can find just the crank, well then I guess I'm going to learn how to split a case

yeah, the s models had em. sorry for the dark picture, but you can see the tab hanging down under the rear fender on mine, just below the turn signal (lock not present).



currently working on a mount for a bottle opener to bolt to mine.

Cranks

So looking at the fiche and cross-model part lookup based on a '96 350se, it appears that on the DR's, it's the same crank for every single bike, all years. Is that true? Kick vs electric? Dirt vs Street?

Edit: One other question
I found a local '92 dirt model bike for a good deal. Are the engine cases interchangeable between the older kick model and my newer electric model? I know I'd have to move over the stator and such, but not sure the cases are the same. What about the starter? If I just I just installed the whole dirt motor, could I get the lights to work for street use?

Will the Raptor petcock work on the stock tank? If so which years? My petcock is leaking and I hate vacuum petcocks anyways.
