Someone else did just that.

It is in this thread within a month or two - I think the word "weld" is in the post.

From 2 pages ago, here's what I did with mine to rectify the problem. Precisely as you said. This picture was done with a dremel which is all I had available at the time. When I got back home from school, I reground it with an angle grinder and it looks a lot better.:

Wow, not sure how I missed that. I guess because it was on the bottom of the page. Thanks for the info.

I still want to leave this kind of thing as a last resort. I don't have easy access to power or welding tools.

I am waiting on a reply from the Procycle folks. They have a DR350 lever which looks like it may fit.

Yeah, that was me. Had same problem with my 12" size MX boots and clearence. Removed footpegs, took them to a welder guy, who cut console shorter and welded footpeg back to very close to the bolt.

I'm thinking about fitting some saddlebags but they are like to touch the exhaust heat shield. If I was to fit some kind of heat insulating material between the exhaust and the heatshield would it prevent exhaust heat from disapating?

On my DR350, I smashed a large beer can and wired it in place. Works great. On the 200, I run plastic Ortlieb bags and they lay directly on the muffler guard (the little guard on the stock muffler) and they don't melt. I'd be a little nervous about this in very hot weather, though.

Don't know. They seem kind of small.

I'm looking for a new set of tank panniers too. The ones I had were made for ATVs but they are no longer made.

I was a bit uncomfortable w the part of the right bag that hung below the side panel.... Just sitting in the garage it looked fine, but it didn't seem like it would take much to push it into the pipe..... So I fabbed up a bracket to keep it away.....



Here's a shot of the mounted bag (with just a beach towel shoved in it):



I'm impressed with the quality and fit of this product.....

What is the model name of the wolfman bags? I think the moose expedition bags hold more.

Question replacement 2003 DR200 starter motor seals

my starter's main seal is leaking and the brushes are about spent. i cleaned all the oil out yesterday to get it to start and know it is just a matter of time before i have to do it again.

down here (southern chile), apparently you need the physical dimensions of the seals to ask for them, not the part number, like on a bearing. can anybody tell me this? i don't want to pry the old seal out until i am SURE i can get a replacement on the spot.

same question for the clutch seal on the top of the case...

my breather must be plugged to be losing oil up high like this, huh?

thanks for any tips. i just posted about my trip in south america on ride reports.
