It doesn't help that my main riding buddy sold his DR350 when he got HIS DR650! Seems like my riding time is evolving to more 50/50 adventures than hardcore dirt with minimum connecting pavement. It's only costing me about $150 a year to keep the 350, so I haven't advertised it for sale, but I may let it go to a good friend we're trying to get into dual sport riding. It will be a sad day when (if) I sell mine!

If anyone can help me with sourcing a DR250/350 carb, I would be forever grateful. Having a hard time finding any stock carbs out there. Don't want to spend the bucks for a pumper or expensive aftermarket kit that I will still have to tune. I'm just trying to get an 82 DR250 running and have verified that the bike will run off a 90-94 year carb as well. Thanks!

I have a Mikuni TM32 that was on my 92 DR350S, maybe you'd be interested.

Also a big plus is now without a guard, other motorcycle riders will see your manliness in full display.

When riding with the sixteen more than once, my foot rubbed on the moving sprocket.
wear boots.

Will the guard not fit then? I see plenty of people running without the guard but it fits just fine with the 15T on my bike so I don't know if that's a problem.

I see the case saver is still there. Was it ground to fit or did one from another model work?

Just recently installed a 16T on mine, had to cut some of the cover to properly fit. Fortunately I had a spare less attractive cover I could cut without concern that I would screw it up. Feels nice and smooth for road travel, of which I do much more than off-road.

My trusty DR is in serious need of a top end rebuild. Unfortunately, the cost of repair is more than I want to dump into it at this point. I am looking at upgrading to a ~'06 DR-Z400S.

I am trying to decide what to do with the old DR. I could hang on to it and keep my eyes open for a new engine, sell it as-is, or part the bike out. If anyone has a line on a used 350 engine in decent shape, I may be interested. Otherwise, if anyone is interested in buying a DR with a toasted top end, let me know!

Rear wheel

I discovered this while changing my tire this weekend.





My bike is a 95SE with the cush hub. Are the non cush wheels a direct swap?

I'm looking for a complete wheel at this point, PM me if anyone has one to sell for a reasonable price. I may also have items to swap.
