DR350 non-cush wheels are a direct swap, but you may need different spacers.
DRZ250 also has the same back wheel (non-cush).
DR650 rear wheel will fit but it's a 17 inch.
I'm almost positive that the DRZ400 uses the same rear wheel.
RMX250 is probably the same rear wheel also.

Rear wheels are hard to find cheap. Since it is only your rim that is busted it is not that hard to swap rims. Might be a bit time consuming but not that hard.

-Find a replacement rim of the same size. Since moto rims are single walled you don't really have to worry about spoke length.

-tape the old wheel and the new rim together lining up the spoke holes.

-losen all the spokes. Remove each spoke at a time and swap from the old wheel spoke hole to the new. You do not need to undo the entire spoke from the hub and mess with the lace pattern.

-true, dish, and tension. You might want a shop to do this part.

Extended shifter

Does anyone know of an extended shifter that is available for the DR350?
I have searched and am unable to locate one.

Question Wiring diagram 1995 DR350SE~HELP Plz!

Please help me find a wiring diagram for a 1995 DR350SE (electric start)
I searched here and got this:
  1. D'oh... Our sucky search engine couldn't handle that term. Got Google?
The R/H switch on the handle bar, that runs the starter and on/off kill switch was broken internally.
I ordered and replaced it.
(This is a used bike I just got) I never tried to use the switch until I got the new switch.
Now, with the new 'kill switch' in the OFF position . The bike won't start. Thats good.
But! When the engine is running and, I try to shut it off with the kill switch, it won't shut-off.
It's like the kill switch isnt hooked up!
I hope you can help.
Thanks
Jim

Here is the speedometer I fit to my dirt model. It has worked very well for me the past 1 3/4 years (10,000 + miles).
http://thisoldtractor.com/gtbender/d...-_baja_designs

Here is the rear disc and pads I fit. Disc works lovely. Pads wore out in 3000 miles (though I hear that is common for organic kevlar pads).
http://thisoldtractor.com/gtbender/d...sc_replacement

As for valve adjustment, I just set my valves to the loose end of the spec for my year. The only "trick" is to use (or make) a little tool for turning and holding the tiny square adjuster.
Pro Cycle sells the valve adjustment tool here:
http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr350.html

Or you can make your own with a #2 square drive screw and a short piece of dowel.

Should you need any of the commonly replaced o-rings, let me know. I can help you out with those.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Gregory Bender
