One of my favorites is south to Canoa, west and south to Arivaca, on to the ghost town of Ruby, Peña Blanca lake, Rio Rico, Patagonia, over the Santa Ritas to Kentucky Camp, Sonoita, then back over the Santa Ritas and pop out on Continental Road through Box Canyon. I need to get a speedo for my bike, one of my KTM riding buddies does a good job of setting up bikes with signals and speedos and I need to get him to help me out so I can do more rides north of Tucson.
I wish i was back in the area. Spent a summer living on top of the lemmon in '98. Great terrain! Im currently down in Louisianna, i work for an Offshore Diving comany. Cant wait to get back out west!

what is this tubing supposed to do?

I may have a leak from there, anything I need to worry about?


thx
I believe it draws fuel from the float bowel up to the choke mechanism.

Could be wrong though.

A few pictures of my 1992 DR350S. I owned the bike for fifteen years before I sold it at the end of last year. It really was a do it all bike over the years. If I had more room in the garage I woulds have kept it.

Riddle me this

Yesterday the street tires went on the DR. There are thoughts of a track day this spring.



As I happen to have a spare set of wheels I was also going to mount up my 606's on a set.

The 1994 wheels on this bike have a cush drive. The set off the 1997 'street' version does not. My buddy's '99 'street' version also has no cush drive.

The question(s): Anyone know what the story is on no cush drive on the later years? Any issues using the noncush drive wheel on earlier models?

Ended up putting the street tires on the cush drive for now.

cush drive wheel should work fine. i put a early 250 cush drive rear wheel on my 99350se and it works fine. the front wheel was another story. the axle was to big to fit the early wheel. not much of a problem though, just pounded in a set of 99 bearings and wheel worked fine.

Thanks but the cush drive came on it. I'm actually wondering about running NO cush drive and the impact - so to speak.
