Curious ?? -- what racks are you using to support the Wolfman bags ???

Can you post some closer pictures ??

Thanks ...
TCI Denali rack. There's not many new racks available for the DR350's anymore, especially with side bag supports.

These are the best pics I have on hand, sorry they don't show the rack very well..
Here's a couple links for more info & pics.

I need a solution for my big feet

OK - I'm going to destroy the tranny in my DR unless I can figure out a decent/easy/cheap solution to my dilemma.

When I ride with MX boots, I find that as the trail gets more technical that I start moving around alot on the pegs. In the process my boot tip is always in contact with the shifter and sooner or later I catch a lower gear w/o the clutch. Its gotten to the frustration point.

The way I see it I can either fab a shifter extension or a bracket for the pegs to move them back (I saw the DR650 peg moving brackets - and thats a thought).

Has anyone else had this issue and found a decent solution

I'd dealing with the same issue. I wear a size 49 mx boot and the shifter is way too close to the pegs to allow for up shifting. At this point I've got an extra shift lever that I will be experimenting with to come up with a solution. I'll let you know what I come up with.

I run a us size 13 and do fine witrh the dr shifter, when I use my mx boots, I just raise the shifter 1 spot, then in my street boots I lower it one. I have yet to do any single track riding on the dr though, so I will look out for this come spring time...

I upshift with the inside lip of the sole of my mx boots. This way I don't have to have the shifter raised, and it doesn't require lifting my foot WAY up to downshift. Of course if your mx boots don't have a lip then that won't work for you.

I think I'm leaning this way...It should be pretty easy to weld on an extension I think. When you get around to experimenting - I would love to see a pic!

Thanks for the feed back all. I thought about bumping the shifter up a notch but talked myself out of it. Maybe its worth a shot.

The shifter is a bit closer to the pegs on the DR than on most bikes - wider pegs make matters worse. Always bugged me a little, but not a major issue for me. The shifter is mild steel, wouldn't be a huge ordeal to cut it and weld it longer. If you had another shifter to use for material that'd be ideal.

Awesome thanks folks!!

ps: any stock numbers for the steering head bearing...?

It ain't much but it might get you started. All measurements are approximate.

Sweet! Thanks! I should be able to work with that. I appreciate you taking the time to measure it for me.

Is the DR350 a bare steel sleeve or Nicasil?

Hi Pablo83,

A cast iron sleeve is used.

That is a good looking setup kobukan. My only worry is how rugged the frame would be for multiple off-road "naps". For a dual-sport/touring bike though, the system looks ideal.

I think I'll try the Andystrapz expedition bags lashed to the Dirtbagz pannier rails, the same setup Dr. Rock uses on his Mobius DRZ's. They may not be quite as waterproof as your Wolfman setup, the trade-off being potentially more crash-worthiness.

Nice lookin' DR you have!
