missing case saver

I discovered that po of my Ď99 SE had changed the front sprocket to a 16t, he took out the case saver and used nuts to space the sprocket cover. It sounds like a case saver is a good idea but I canít find one online. Someone mentioned Bike Bandit as source but they donít have one listed for this bike. Any ideas or just try Suzuki dealer? I also see that the sprocket ate into the plastic swing arm guard, it doesnít look like it is going to fall off but I donít see that as a problem mentioned for the 16t sprocket. I put a 13t sprocket on and gearing is now much more to my liking.

It looks like a normal BST converted to single cable, but the float bowl casting is also different. The code on the side (14D02) looks somewhat familiar - could this carb be off a DR250?

The Workshop Manual (see PDF page numbers 9 and 11 and 163) states that the cylinder head bolts (the four tapered shaft bolts that secure the cylinder head to the engine block) be re-torqued after the first 5 hours, then every 30 hours after that (for the "S" models: after the first 1,000 miles, then every 6,000 miles after that).

In practice, I highly doubt any DR350 has seen such regular tightening of the cylinder head bolts. Typically I'll do it about once a year, whenever I start seeing any leaks from the cylinder head cover. That gives me a chance to clean, inspect, and put on a fresh coat of sealant. If that cover isn't leaking, I don't touch it! :> :> :>

In my experience with my DR350, the cylinder head bolts rarely need any additional torque. I check by loosening one 90 degrees, then I'll re-torque that same one and note if I move past 90 degrees. Then I move on to the next one, etc. I do one at a time, so that I don't run any risk of dislodging the head gasket.

On a newly acquired DR, I would absolutely do this task because I wouldn't have any idea if it had ever been done in the past.

I hope this helps!

Regards,

Gregory Bender

Pretty sure the first couple years were a single cable system. As far as I know it's a stock carb.

Remember that we have alcohol fuels to deal with now. It vaporizes easier than gas and the higher the altitude the more risk of vapor lock (I see your in Idaho). I'm in Colorado and have had this issue on Hot days until I did away with the inline fuel filter. Your filter being so close to the HOT cylinder doesn't help either. Hope this helps.

I'm coming due for C&S replacement myself. Will that case saver work with a 16T sprocket (I had to lightly dremel the current one to fit a 15T in there)?

That is what I am talking about.

All years used a dual cable set up. Not jsut using a single cable but the cable attachment lobe thing is desinged to be a single cable set up.

The idle speed or throttle stop adjsutment is different too.

DR250 used a BST33 for the "S" and a TM31 for the dirt. The BST(CV) is exactly like the DR350's except for slight internal tweek to the jetting.

'90 and '91 model DR350S models had a single pull cable for sure. Don't know a thing about the 250 tho.

Thump! is correct - just checked the parts manual and the L and M models had the BST carb with the single pull cable and the straight idle adjust....

For further reference, the N and P model had dual cable and the same idle adjust setup, and the R/S/T models had the dual cable (different pulley) and the curved idle adjust setup.
