My 350`s just been on a dyno to check jetting etc
23hp and 17.5ft lbs of torque
Spec cv carb [with std jetting] and DEP silencer and a MT43 rear tyre
28,000mls
I was hoping for 25hp but the silencer is holding it back slightly as its road legal

Not much but does offer a better contact patch for the roller compared to a knobbly tyre

pic test

Just tryin to see if the photobucket way of postin pics worked. Fixed this 94 se up at the end of the summer and took it on a 2900 mile trip from Wyoming to California up the coast and back through the Trinity mountains . Way cool bike, cruise at 70mph and 65 mpg with 16 41 sprockets. Offroad way better than the 1150 gs I has. Researched a bunch before I bought this bike with only 1500 on the clock. Just finished reading Mondo Enduro and the most impressive part was one 350 towing another 350 760 miles through Saudi Arabia. I need to find a big adventure for me and this bike. Greaqt forum this advrider. Good for winter bound cabins in the frozen wilds of Wyoming Scott

Great forum this advrider. Good for winter bound cabins in the frozen wilds of Wyoming

Good for the winter bound cabins up here in the great white north as well!!

Nice looking bike, what is that strapped to the front of the skid plate?
Maybe it is just the pic but it looks too small to be a tool container. A tire pump?
How is the hard case mounted? The smaller one above the swing arm not the larger cases above the rear wheel.

John

p.s winter will not last for ever, winter will not last for ever, winter will not last for ever.....

The 16 tooths sprocket is the same as front sprocket for a drz400. They are listed for that bike from suppliers. The small cases are mounted to the passenger peg mounts and mounted as to break away instead of breaking my leg. Had soft bags there and I think I liked them better. The front tube is for hwy pegs and is conduit pipe mounted with U bolts with harley pegs at the ends. Corbin seat is sooooo nice. On that 2900 mi trip I had the stock seat with the wally world pad and truely almost had bleedings sores on my butt by the end. Had a KLR 650 I rode to Alaska and I like the DR better. That sixth gear makes a huge difference. They should have kept making this bike.

It is a tci rack. I ordered the givi mounting kit from happy trails and just had to weld two small brackets on each side. easy

They look great ....

Can you post some additional pictures ??

Of the mounting plates you welded on the TCI rack, and with the bags on from the rear ??

What is the total width of your DR with the E21's mounted ??

Thanks ... ,

Larry

The bike looks great! I'd recommend adding fork gaiters as the seals will not last long when exposed and you will most likely nick a fork tube that way as well:)
