I promised...

Here is a pic of my new steed I promised earlier.
[IMG][/IMG]
A 94 with about 5600mi. It came with the Acerbis tank and I mounted the front and rear fenders from Jesse.
I then took it off for a weekend adventure around Deal's Gap, NC.
See this...you may have to be registered to view it. The action starts on page 8.

My 95 blue frame has some spots I'd like to touch-up. Have any of you tried this product? I'm interested if anyone with a blue frame tried their "suzuki blue". I wonder if the "Yamaha Blue" would work as well?

Sweet! I really like that front fender. Did it come already that color or did you have to paint it?

What do you guys recommend for handguards? I like the squareish style of the stock ones but theyre so cheap too. I want some thing more sturdy.

Also, I ordered a new diaphram and a new 140 mainjet. I ordered a manual a while back and got it Saturday, so now I can adjust the floats. Hopefully one of thosenwill solve my revving issues.

You can get the fenders in any color you want from Jesse as long as they are white. The Acerbis guards came on the bike. They took a few licks this weekend and held up fine. I have the Maier guards on the 650 and like them too.
Good luck with the carb thing. The PO just had the carb on this one cleaned and rebuilt but no change in jetting. He put a 45t rear sprocket with the 15 front to give it a bit more low end. It loses a bit off the top, but that is worth the tradeoff. The new 606's are working well. I recall a post on this thread expressing the opinion they were one of the better tire options for this bike....I agree.

I am using tusk d-flex on mine, from rockymountainatv.com. I mounted them this past winter, so far so good. I did alot of research on handguards and it seems that the tusk d-flex are the best bang for the buck, with that said I haven't dropped the bike yet so we will see how they do when I put them to work.
I also ordered the same front fender from Jesse as well as an enduro rear fender. They look great and are very price competative

Update on ECO....

I filled today at 60 miles 1.36 gallons....I rode it abit more ''restricted'' this tank and it showed improvement....My math says @42 MPG... Stock I was getting closer to 48

It's my right hand ....I'm a blipper....

I can live with that but not without a bigger tank...I HATE looking for gas stations well under 100 miles.

Begging for some overtime,


me

A request - aftermarket spotters

OK, so this was my first bike. 1994 DR350. I loved it. The thing is, when I owned it, I had no idea what it was, what I was doing, or how to take care of it. Change the oil, add gas, go.

So here is my idea. I am getting another DR350, and I would like to set it up very similar to what I had before. WOuld you be willing to scan these photos and let me know what on this bike was non-stock based upon what you can see?

All I know of is the aftermarket barkbusters. Anything else you catch will help me out. Anybody know what tires those were? Here are the photos: (click for full-size images)

Looks bone stock mostly with knobbies...Can't tell which ones but when you get another buy Dunlop 606's

Best DOT knob I know about....Others may say differant but I loved my last set and thats whats going back on it..

Lot's of mods out there...Just depends on what your gonna do with it...




get one!
