I will be selling the supermoto conversion stuff separately.
Did you ever post any pictures of your supermoto set up once you finished it? I remember you posted a couple of pictures of the front wheel and the brake caliper adapter, but I never saw the rear wheel that you used or the complete set up. Please post some if you have any.

Thanks.

Hugh

Aux running Lights on 350

I picked up a 97 DR350 I use it to commute 50 mile round trip. some weekend adventure riding gavel roads, fire roads etc. Don't plan on any thumping and jumping. Looking to install some running/ fog lights looking for some ideas on mounting locations. I know elect. system will handle them. Anyone have pics?

I installed a clark tank on my 99. it had a usable capacity of around 3.7 gallons. to balance out the sides I put a barbed 1/4" fitting in each side towards the bottom front with a hose crossing over. the first hole was the hardest to drill. I threaded the holes and put epoxy on the fittings and screwed them in. it held for 4 years. then I wanted a bigger tank and had read on another website about fitting a 5 gallon xr600 tank. so I bought one and did the same thing to it. it has a usable capacity of 5 gallons. when I put the fittings in this one I had a small seepage on one side after a week so had to redue it. that was 3 years ago. what I like is I have a range of 300 mi. plus. riding easy on backroads I've done 350 on the main with 1/2 gallon left. only downside is you have to make mounting brackets.

My 96 dirt model has black fork boots.

I think this is the correct part number, I checked the microfiche at www.ronayers.com.

Those are progrip. IIRC about half the cost of OEM and twice as sturdy. Just measure the diameter of the forks and see your local Parts Unlimited dealer.

Hi Kenny, are you looking for the black plastic piece that contains the plate-light and bolts underneath the white fender piece? If so, I do have it (it doesn't have the metal plate bracket though - I re-mounted that on the fender) and it's yours for the cost of shipping. Shipping might be prohibitive though as I'm in Canada. Let me know.

I got the info off of someones website but I can't remember who. I think it was something like ludwigs dr350 info, but I 'm not sure. I've looked a little but haven't found it yet. the tank fits well but you have to fab up brackets. I ran a piece of allthread through the top engine mounting plate so it stuck out about an inch or so and used that as my attachment point. the xr tank doesn't have the half moon points, just a place to screw in two bolts on each side. I got a flat piece of metal and ran it from the two bolts to the allthread on the engine plate. also a little extra foam under the tank to take up a little space. sorry but I don't have any pics, it sure would be easier to explain. I think the tank number was 1304 but I have to look it up to be sure. I'm in colorado on a sking trip. when I get back I'll try and find more info.

Pumper jetting

Would anyone like to post their jetting with the pumper carb and stock exhaust? I haven't started on it yet, but I am removing the Supertrapp that is currently on the bike and putting a stock pipe back on.

BTW: If anyone is looking for a Supertrapp, let me know.

Lookie what showed up in the mail!!



Recently a used pumper carb from Bob over at thumpertalk and today the parts need to install(from Jesse)


The plan is to install this weekend, but no riding for a few weeks yet. Still too much snow on the ground.

yeroc40, the carb came from bob unit over at thumpertalk.com. It was a spare he had tuned up for the dr350 with stock exhaust. I would suggest you send him a pm, via thumpertalk, as he recently installed a new pumper carb on his DR and can help you out. When I ordered the parts from Jesse I told him that I was running with a modded airbox and a modded stock exhaust, similar to what Jesse offers. He suggested that a 140 main jet and the needle in the 4'th position was what I needed. Bob had already set the needle to the 4'th position so I installed a 140 main jet so it looks like I am good.

More to come.
John
