Wicked DR250 / DR350 cargo rack SALE from Pro Moto Billet

Fellow DR250 / DR350 riders,

Once lstuckey1 posted a pic of his nice DR350 fitted with the Pro Moto Billet cargo rack, I knew it was the one I wanted. I even PM’d him about it.

So, I e-mailed Pro Moto asking if they would fabricate some more considering other people besides me showed interest. Luckily, customer sales representative Will Huffman answered that they still had 7 units left, and that once they were sold out no more would be fabricated. The best part is that he mentioned a special sale price to clear the inventory.

Standard price is $159.95, but for these last 6 units price is $94.95. If interested in this great deal, call Mr. Huffman ASAP and mention the discount code 'FORUMSDR250350' to purchase yours. Contact info:

Will Huffman
Customer Service/Sales
Pro Moto Billet & Fastway Performance
(866) 466-4762 ex. 231

As you may know, these racks fit equally all Suzuki DR250 / DR350 models and years.





Info taken from the Pro Moto Billet site:

"Like other Pro Moto Billet products, "Rack-It" cargo racks are a work of art. Not only are they functional, they look good too.

Each rack is CNC machined from a 1/2 inch thick plate of 6061 billet aluminum. The rack is then “hard clear” anodized for durability, ease of maintenance, and protection from the elements. We use only stainless steel fasteners to provide carefree maintenance. Most racks require no major modifications to mount. Installation instructions included.

Rack measures 10" W x 10" L. "



Any other info, go to: www.promotobillet.com


I will also post this in the TT forum, so hurry up!


Finally, I am in no way related to ProMoto Billet, as I don't even live in the US.....

RE: DR250 / DR350 cargo rack SALE from Pro Moto Billet

Rack appears to require removal of grab rail but does not have turn signal mounts for street models. Also not quite certain if it bolts straight onto DR frame or onto the subframe underneath the fender (apart from one center bolt I don't care about).

Well, I went ahead and ordered one anyway. $110 with shipping to Louisiana. Will fab something up for turn signal mounts and hope the rack bolts up to the frame. Sure it will be easy enough to get rid of if it doesn't work.

Hi slartidbartfast,

Sorry for not detailing on this particular info.

Yes, this rack requires the removal of the original grab rail, and it mounts directly to the bike's frame using the original grab rail holes.

Also, you can already get the turn signal mounts as accesory, $15.95 pair. Go to: http://www.promotobillet.com/catalog...hp/cPath/24_84. Other accesories you can get are: Bag-It Tool Pack, Cargo Straps, and Saw-It chain saw carrier plate.



I bet you can phone Will again and add up the turn signal mounts to your order.

Sweet. I ordered one up also!

I currently have my turn signals mounted next to the license plate using the license plate bolt holes/hardware, and a couple of little brackets like the PMB ones.

Works well. I wouldn't necessarily mount signals on the rack as they would break when you fall.

I was VERY happy with the PMB rack on my DRZ400 and am looking forward to having one on the 350. It's so pretty...

Thanks for the tip on the rack. Seems like it will work nicely. For $16 I think I'll just fab my own signal mounts though.

Great job Jaime! You did your research and now you and six other people will get great deals on a great rack. That is what this site is all about!

Done deal. Been thinking about fabbing up a luggage rack of some sort. This should work well to hold a duffle bag on top of side saddles, and look cool around town. Bungie cords, 12 pack of beer,....yup! Already have rear turn signals that will work with it.

I just put this rack on my "new to me" 93 DR350S. At $112 delivered it seem to be a fair deal. Turn signals mount right up.

Need some opinions.

I'm looking at two bikes, both '98s.

One has serious starting problems, a larger tank, and an aftermarket seat, with 6800 miles, $1200.

The other is completely stock, 4800 miles and supposedly runs well, $1600.

The difference is $400 more for the stock one, but a bike with no issues.

A used CDI unit has been ordered for the one with starting problems.

I know you can't make the call for me, but just curious which you would choose with those parameters.

"Serious" starting issues? As long as there are no funny mechanical noises it's probably fixable for much less than $400 and you get the seat and tank. Would be the obvious choice for me.

+1

My '99 wouldn't start at all when I bought it - had been sitting for two years. Cleaned the carb, put a new spark plug in it along with some fresh gas then put 5k trouble-free miles on it.
