And this one on New England Dirt Bikes, you might have to register to view this but its in Mass, a 1996 SE with 4k miles for $1600 bo

Nice, road trips are fun especially when your picking up a new toy. That one in Mass sounds very interesting. I'm torn between the 96se in New England and the one in Winsted,CT. Let me give them a call and see what deal I can come up with.

Once again thanks fellows.. We got snow up here so they'll probably want to let it go for cheaper now.

Just my opinion but the '91 with the new clutch is overpriced by about $800

No mention of mileage .... I wouldn't waste my time unless it was listed for $1,000 or less complete with service records.

Suspension, new or upgraded induction... etc: costs quite a few $$$.
Fenders and turn signals are dirt cheap.
You can add $100 or so for the Acerbis tank but that's about it.

I'd be patient and wait for a great DR at a great price.
It will come along especially in seasonal states.
Fuel oil will be over $4 a gallon soon.... toys get cheap when homeowners get desperate.

Again, just my opinion from my purchasing experience.

Good luck.

Those are the only ones I found on the nearby spots online, didnt check ebay or want ad digest, but I agree mileage sholud be in the ad and that kick start 91 is priced high. I drove about 100 miles out to get mine but it was worth it, that was in the summer and there were 2x as many 350's for sale too.

Bob based on your purchasing experience wouldn't you think everything is over prices? You got that DR for a roll of quarters and some pocket lint, right?

Well, I just paid $1500 for a 1990 with 8000 miles and a big tank with no signs of abuse. Sure there will be people that find them for less but it was what I wanted, when I wanted it and it was close.

Exceptional deals should not be the benchmark for average value. As far as I could tell, national average for the older models right now is about $1200.00. A little cheaper in the east, a little more in the west. An really, how much is your time worth? Are you going to scour the internet, local papers, etc. for hours and hours, then drive some great distance just to save a couple hundred bucks?

Bought an entire rear assy from a 96 and swapped only the caliper and mounting bracket. After bleeding the whole system the brakes do their job when I spin the wheel by hand, but the caliper seems loose if not pushing the pedal. Is this normal? I can't recall it being that wobbly.

I dont know about a 99 but on my 96 there is a spacer on the hub in between the caliper. Number nine.

From the thread on TT I made about mine

'I live in CT and $1,700 is pretty steep for a '97 with 11K.

I bought a '91 a couple of years ago with 2,800 miles in excellent condition (only difference from a '97 is electric start) for $550 in the month of October.'

Anytime I've seen a street legal DR350 for under 1,000 dollars something was wrong with it, or it had 21k miles or something like that.

About the parts wearing, I agree, I went from full motocross riding and woods racing on an RM250, to my DR350 doing a little bit of dirt, and moslty pavement and am amazed at how some stuff like bearings and air cleaners have stayed in better shape. My brakes are wearing faster though, it may be becuase it's heavier and I'm going faster on the roads than I did in the dirt.

The 60Cx is the only GPS that I use. I've had it for several years and it seems just right for me. It has the capability to record an almost unlimited number of tracks which I use to create maps that I can share with other Garmin users. I've made a fairly good but basic map of the Copper Canyon area in Mexico with roads not shown on any other map or mapping software.

The screen is small. Don't plan on reading it while moving.

It doesn't replace a $100 Nuvi for street use, but in the DS area it's the most popular GPS garmin sells.

There is tons of info on GPS in the Layin down Tracks forum.

I just got my fuel tank hardware from Acerbis. Brian sent me the mounts for the frame, fuel line and fitting, and two petcocks! Thumbs up to Acerbis for helping me out.

Here in Middle Missouri, I paid $1600 for a 1998 DR350se with 1800 miles on it. Bike was all original and as you can imagine in pretty good shape.

Good Karma for Shearboy

I just want to tell everyone what a heck of a nice guy or fellow inmate Shearboy is. I was experiencing some carb problems with my pumper and could not get it figured out. I think it is plain wore out. Well, or esteemed compatriot Shearboy, came to my rescue and shipped me his old, but not worn out, pumper!!! I have thanked him through PM but I really want everyone here to know what a good guy he is. May this good Karma come back to you ten fold my friend!!!



Sorry if I embarrassed you SB but I had to say that...lol
