Unusually, I will be in the USA in March (I live in London) and am looking for openings to do my presntation about motorcycling across Russia/collapse of the Soviet Union. I also have one on my recent 'SAlt and Gold' expedition to the remotest corner of the Sahara!

I hate to say it but they're very funny and have something of a cult reputation over here.

Can you think of any organisiation or individual that would book me to do this, they're about 2hrs long (obviously with 271 pix) and is well received? Naturally, I can go pretty much anywhere such is your peerless network of internal flights!

Any contact you could give me would be much appreciated. All the best

Attached is a '93s-'94s schematic
Ignore any Electric Start wiring (don't see any myself so I believe its a pre E start diagram)
Diagram works fine for both my '90s and '91s kickers which are the same as the '92s model.

Save the pic to your desktop so you can zoom in for more clarity.

Hi Austin. We're trying to work up another gig for you in Knoxvegas.

If you haven't seen Austin's presentation, it's a hoot.

1991 dr350?

new to this thread, so my apologies if this has been covered before; I have a line on a 91 DR350, approx 7500 miles on it. Plan on looking at it this weekend, but have a question concerning kick starting, as I have been reading that they are harder to kick over when hot... I will possibly ride it home, approx 3.5 hours, and will be stopping for fuel, any issues with restarting? also it appears that the seat height on this bike is 35"; is that accurate as well? this could be a concern as I am vertically challenged

any input on what else to look for would be greatly appreciated.

My new ride!

So if you go all the way back to page two of this amazing thread, you will find this picture:



Well, I just bought it! It is a '98 dirt model with a plate. I got it from my step father who purchased it from Creswellelkhunter a year an change ago. My step father barely road it and he decided it was too agressive a bike for him. So he sold it to me for $1,200!!!!!

This bike is completly kitted out as it was set up as a dessert racer by Creswellelkhunter (see page two for pic of bike being raced.)That being said; it is very tight and well cared for, not at all abused. Starts FIRST kick hot or cold. It has the following list of goodies that add up too a very impressive bike:

*Wiseco hi-comp piton
*air box/jetting
*Big Gun race series muffler (not that loud actually)
*W.E.R. Steering stablizer
*RMX swinger
*stock pumper
*IMS tank
*fat bars and after market upper triple clamp
*Baja Designs Oregon headlight with integrated signals
*very thick bash plate of unknown brand
*grip heaters
*bearing chain rollers
*front and rear disc guards
*heavy duty chain guide
*folding shift and brake levers
*bark busters
*vector computer
... and probably a bunch of other things I havent found yet. This thing is sooo nice, I love the steering stablizer, this is the first time i've tried one and it is great. I love my DR 650 that I've had for the last five years but it is nowhere near the dirt bike that the 350 is. The power of the 350 with the wiseco is about the same as my 650 before I put the JE piston in it, it rips!
Im slowly making my way through this whole thread (sounds daunting but try the DR650 thread!) and have gleaned tons of good info from you all so thanks for all the positive and helpful posts.

98 DR 350SE rear turn signals wont work?

Hi, I am so close to having my DR roadworthy again I can taste it. I have one more issue before I can get serious about riding it. The guy I bought it from flipped it over backwards on himself, wife got mad, he sold the bike. In the process of flipping he broke the rear turn signals and tail light. I replaced them all. Tail light works like a champ but the turn signals don't work. I put a test light on them and get no power from the wires. Is there something simple I've missed? I found the 20 amp fuse by the battery and it was ok.......
Also on the tail light/ license plate light I found only has two wires whereas my bike has three. I found that if I ground the Black/White wire to the bolt on the tail light it works. I am about the farthest thing from an electrician a person could be so I was wondering if this will hurt anything? I believe it is the ground but wouldn't bet the farm on it.

My 91 always starts easy when hot, my issue is cold starts, like after a week. PITA then.

Everyone always bitches about hot starts... (or cold starts sometimes). My DR starts within 3 kicks, EVERY time, hot, warm, cold or REALLY cold. Is my bike the only properly tuned DR out there?
