Check it again. It's for the front and the rear.

i have a 94 DR350SE and just found a rear shock off of a 1996 DR350SE for sale, it says OHLINS on the reservoir. would this be a worthwhile swap or is the stock shock on mine similar to the 1996 model?

Looking at the link, parts 1-10 are the fronts. The rest are the passenger's - oh sorry - pillion's

If its really an ohlins, yeah it would likely be worth the swap. I think the Suzuki shocks were the same for those years but you could check the part numbers at WWW.mrcycles.com to make sure.

corbin seat

Is a corbin seat worth it? I have to ride quite a ways to even get to trails and the stock seat is a little uncomfortable. Anyone have any success with other seats? I know there are some build your own places and places you can ship your seat to and have it redone.

Saw that a couple of days ago. That is NOT an Ohlins shock. The jack ass of a seller is trying to fool you. That is the worse shock made for the our bikes. 96+ SE. You might already have an upgraded dirt shock seeing how the PO of your bike seem to have upgraded alot of stuff.

I was very confused about all the different shocks that came stock on the DR350. After I did some learning I wrote this:

Read it all, as the first few post of mine was part of the learning curve.

i had a corbin seat on a KLR650 and liked it, did a 3000+ mile trip to the copper canyon from oakland. of course i liked it as much as i did because i bought it on craigslist for $80-90 and it was in almost new condition. i don't think i would have bought the seat for the new corbin price. i'll probably get the seat concepts foam and cover for my DR, $189 or so shipped.

Some swear by them others say a corbin is too wide and interfers with offroad riding.

Seat concents is another company that makes replacment foam and covers. Never heard anything bad about them. They are chepaer than corbins too. Their is a mail yours in option as well. I would like to get one of these seats.

In my opinion, a Corbin seat would be a mistake on the DR350. Corbin makes their seat bases out of very thick and heavy material and their foam is also very dense, adding substantial weight to the bike. The Seat Concepts seat (and others) add significant comfort without undue extra weight and cost a fraction of what Corbin is asking. Downside is that you build the SC seat onto your pan. If this was a problem for you, I'm sure you could pick up a cheap used seat and still be saving lots in comparison to Corbin. In full discosure, I own two Corbin seats (One is on my GTS1000 and the other, for my R1100GS, is sitting on the shelf) and two Seat Concepts seats (One on the DR and one on the GS.) No afiliation to either company.

seat concepts will also do the work for you if you don't want to do it, i think it's an extra $20.

I put one of the atv seat pads from Wal-mart on my DR and it is working very well!Fits the seat nicely too.Before,I would be squirming around after 30 or 40 miles but with that pad, I can go all day without being uncomfortable.

thanks for all the replies

I'm going to pick up a used seat pan from Ebay and send it to seat concepts. And in the mean time I'll see if WalMart has the atv seat cover. thanks again
