The acerbis is the same for both - only one model of acerbis tank. It doesn't use the stock mounting points.

I asked him a question about that clarke tank, it says it has never been used as a gas tankm but it clearly has scuffs and scrapes, so I asked what it had been used for but I didn't get a response yet. Ebay also lists a clark tank for $196 shipped (i think) brand new in all colors too, so the clarke is pretty affordable.

Nevermind, I did get a response

Dear 250shifter,

Hello.
The scratches were there because this was mounted on a bike that was never running after the tank was installed.
It was dirty and scuffed just from having stuff sitting on it while in storage.
The customer we bought it from told us there was never any gas in it.
I believe it as it had zero gas smell and was ultra clean inside.
Thanks.
Joe

A clarke shouldn't be much more than 150 brand new from an online retailer I think.

I have my 93 350S down to the frame for some winter maintenance and am considering a couple of things. With everything off the frame now is as good a time as any. And I like the bike enough to keep improving it with no plans to replace it.

Anyone have any experience with Race Tech cartridge emulators for the front forks?

How about the big bore options out there - 385cc, 435cc, 441cc? I guess I'm really asking if I'd regret not going the big bore route

I've ordered form them before and was happy with them. They are currently backordered on the DR350 4.25 Acerbis tank.

I haven't used emulators before, but I've done a lot of research on them. The engineering behind them is very solid. If I had a damper rod forks, I wouldn't hesitate to use emulators.

On most engines I shy away from big bore kits (I recently bought a WR426 with a big bore, and removed it to help with reliability). But the DR has such thick sidewalls and seems to be such a solid engine, that I'd be comfortable with a big bore kit. I don't think I'd try the 460, but the 440 seems right (which is what I'm currently installing on my 350).

thats the amazing thing about these engines..if you can upgrade 3-4 times in piston size, you could theoretically put a bajillion miles on these motors as long as the bottom end holds.

Suzuki! You should have never stopped building this bike!
Long live the aircooled thumper!

justgastanks.com is where I got my Acerbis from. Sad it was a casualty in my t-bone case. However, my experience from them was very good, if I end up ordering another tank I'll certainly get it there. To anyone thinking about buying from them, I'd highly recommend it.

Pablo, are you installing a big bore "kit" or will you be putting the parts together yourself? Why I am asking is because I have tried to find out what sleeve and piston to purchase for a 441 big bore conversion. That way I can then have the sleeve installed by the local engineering shop. I have only seen complete kits available but no details on the specific items. Surely somebody must have some info or part numbers?
Thank you in advance
