My 250SE case saver didn't fit a 15T sprocket (I think the 250 came with a 14T stock). There are definitely different ones out there.

For chain length I always just order a standard length (120 usually) and cut to fit. I'm much too lazy to go and count out links:)
Ok, thanks . I figured I'd need to do something with the case saver since it looked pretty tight with the 15t.

Ok, I was digging through the previous owners notes and reciepts. And found the following. "Installed JX Needle and spring, opened up pilot jet with #78 drill bit and main jet 145 installed." Was this a common practice? The bike is running a bit rich, but nothing I'd go messing with at this time.

Also what kind of oil consuption is normal? After 350miles I needed to add about 400ml to bring it to mid level on the dipstick.

I don't get any measurable oil consumption on either DR. I'd guess that yours is on the high side unless those 350 miles were all very hard off road miles, in which case maybe its normal.

Some cheaper oils will evaporate at high temps I think. If you have no smoke or leaks you might try a quality syn oil if you aren't already using it and see what that does for you. I'd think that if you are burning that much oil you'd have some smoke. That is almost as much oil per mile as my 2-stroke uses

Also be sure that you are checking the oil using the procedure posted in the manual or you will get false readings as the DR is a dry sump system.

To be honest most of the riding was 5th & 6th gear, fairly higher speeds 50+. Just bombing around some local backroads. Even with that kind of riding I was getting 55mpg. I don't seems to be leaking anywhere, and I agree if I was burning it...it would look like I was riding a 2 smoke.

And yes I'm checking the oil per the procedure in the manual. As usual thanks for the replies.

Does anyone know if any parts from a DR650 will fit onto a DR350, namely the rear shock, seat and an IMS tank? I have a DR650 but would like to downsize to a DR350 and hopefully put my "fancy" parts on the 350.

I know that the stock tank does not fit. The oil reservoir in the DR350 frame makes the mounts too wide. Since the IMS tank mounts the same as the stock tank I'm betting it doesn't fit either.

I don't know about the dimensions of one shock vs the other but the DR350 shock has a detached reservoir and the DR650 attached reservoir is right where mid tube runs. So if it does fit, you would probably have to rework the exhaust.

The seats are closer than I thought they would be. You could make it work, but it would be too much rigging for my taste.


DR650 top, DR350 bottom.


HOWEVER, the footpegs are interchangeable!

I'm having a hell of a time finding a 41 tooth rear steel sprocket for the DR (93 S). Does anyone have a link?

ProCycle sells chain & sprocket sets, but if you call them I bet they sell them separately.

But they don't list a 41 for the 93 DR S. I checked there first actually.

Sorry I didn't notice the distinction on the ProCycle site. How about cheapcycleparts.com?

Anyone ready to part with their DR350? (Mass)

I got shafted by a CL seller yesterday who withheld the fact that he didn't have the title for his DR350s. Since I thought I'd have a bike by now I'm scrambling a bit to find another bike, and I'm looking to a more reputable crowd.

Doesn't have to be in amazing shape, just titled and street legal.

I left my other bikes in WI for the rest of the year and I am anxious to get out of the city. I'm primarily looking for early 90's Jap dual-sports, so if you have something similar, please feel free to shoot me a PM.

Thanks
