Nice score! Welcome to the club, you'll love that bike.

That sucks. But I am sure it will bend right back into shape with a crecent wrench. Fill a claim, bend the lip back, get the cash, enjoy the exhaust. Hope jetting isn't too much of a bear.

It shouldn't take more than 8 hours if you've done it before, provided you have all the new gaskets you'll need and don't run into problems. do you think it might go away by removing the cam cover and retorquing the head? The clymer manual recommends doing this pretty frequently.
This might be true, but not worth buying the bike to only find out more is involved.

Does anyone know of a write up for converting the RMZ250 forks to a DR350? I know several people have done it.

I just picked up the forks, triple, brakes, and wheels from an RMZ250. I believe the donor bike was an '04...
I think I need new bearings and an axle. I'll get pics up when I can.

If it is anything like the Rm, then you will need to press out your steering stem and press it in the lower triple of the rmx one.

Right. But if I remember correctly, something needs to be shimmed?

The top triple and the stem. Some get a spacer custom machined. I used a 3/4" plumbing coupler and some beer can shims. I also relived a little material from the top triple as the Rm triples are thicker. The hardest part is pressing out the Dr stem. Need a big hydraulic press

DR350SE for sale in SC

Just a heads up that my '96 DR350SE with some nice mods will be hitting the FM and Craigslist soon. I shared a good bit about it in this post in the Weekly Rides near Charleston, SC thread. I'm located about 1.5 hours northwest of Charleston & 45 minutes south of Columbia.

Thanks,

Laura

If you use a late 90's Suzuki RMX forks nothing needs to be done except a new upper bearing and turn the top nut down by .125". My DR has a set of forks from a 96 RMX250. I had the tabs that hold the odometer welded to the stock RMX upper clamp, looks all factory. You will need the RMX wheel and brake caliper also.

I believe the forks, wheel, brakes and everything I got are off a '04 RMZ250. Will this still work?

Instructions for installing Mikuni Pumper Carb in '96 DR350 Street?

Hi folks sorry to hi jack this thread but I did some searching and could not come up with what I'm looking for.

I'm a complete mechanical newb so I'm looking for advice/instructions on how to replace my CV carb with the Pumper carb.

I bought my kit from Jesse but all that was included was three 8.5 x 11" photos, one of the cut out air box (which I've done already) and two of the new carb installed in the bike (at least that is what I think they are), no other instructions. I sent him an email request for more info (I had him re and re my old CV carb when I bought the bike used) a week ago but no word back from him yet.

Rarely is something that simple, especially for me so any suggestions would be very much appreicated!

Thank you.
