Any ideas how to get them out

use a pick or screwdrivers as others said, and keep your other hand over the work to prevent a spring IED. the bearing really protests when pressed out.

Mine took around 2 tons of pressure to get out!
Does anyone know where I can get the single roller bearing and spacer that goes into the linkage opposite the plain bearing previously being discussed? I can't really find any places that will sell me the single bearing. I think its 27x32x20

Also DO NOT buy those cheap eBay head gaskets, they suck. Mine has a tiny little bit of oil bubbling out the side. Not enough to drip but enough to just see it. not very impressed. Doesn't burn oil though. Yet.

DR250/350 Manual FS

In the Flea Market (Parts) I have a listing for manuals I no longer need. One is for the DR250/350, if anyone is interested.

Looking for a source for throttle cable on a 1990 DR350S "L/M" carb. This was the early edition with the single pull throttle. No way to bolt up the two-cable bracket so I have to stick with the single cable setup. Also, the later model cables (dual) are about 1.5" too long.

Anyone know a source for the single pull throttle cable for the L/M models?

I've contacted an inmate who may have one in his garage. If he doesn't have it then I'd try to source a custom length cable from a local bicycle shop.

I used the saw on a Leatherman to cut the end off mine because it was the closest saw at hand.

Yeah well i used a 5/8 drill bit and finished the work with a dremel...

but i still got 2 issues : 1- my Freaking ktm heated grip being too long and i dont know if i can cut them a bit

2- The end of the handguard brace is making contact with the front brake line holder preventing me of putting it where it should sit ..

Grips you can always cut, and handguards always take some "finesse" to get them to fit right....I ended up drilling new holes so mine (not Cycra) would mount correctly, and I had to file the handlebar portion to not contact my Acerbis tank.

I would be hesitant to cut grips with heaters built in for fear of damaging wiring. But I do have a ktm you can donate them to.

I installed cheapo heaters a couple of weeks ago. They seem to be working fine.

Its getting a bit cool here, and I had a lot of crap to do around the house, but I did get out for an evening ride tonight. For years I had the DR set up primarily for trail riding, and didn't use it much at all on the street. Gearing down to 12/43, DOT knobbies, etc. This year for whatever reason I have had no time to get to the trails (its a 2 hour trailer drive to the forest I like best), but I have been out and about in the farm country around us.

It's been a lot of fun....I find the DR (now geared at 15/43 and still with knobbies) perfect for country cruising at 50mph...and I look forward to gravel side roads and unmaintained sections.

I am thinking of dropping the gearing even further to 15/39 just to make the cruising more relaxed, but even if I don't I sure do find just being out first thing in the morning or as the sun is setting to be a real hoot....chugging along at my own pace.

Nothing new here to report - just felt good after a ride and wanted to share.

i just geared mine at 15/38 this sunday, it might be a wee bit too much, she's struggling at red light and stop but i wanted to transform it into a touring bike. I'm at 5k rpm at 60mph, and i can swap out the 15 tooth sprocket for a 14 to get close to the original 15/41. i Had to remove two links one male one female tho...
