I'm not really in a hurry to spend money on either, but since I saw a new TM36 for sale rather cheap, are there any advantages/disadvantages of choosing one over the other?
I have a TM33 pumper. I have no experience with the TM36, but if I'm not mistaken it comes in two versions; both are flat slide carbs, but only one is a pumper (has the accelerator pump). The pumper models are more expensive. Either one may be an improvement, but considering the "rather cheap" price I'd suggest confirming that it's the pumper model if that's what you're looking for.

I didn't know there were different version, but it has the accelerator pump.

I think the main advantage is that the 33 is ready for install. As it is more or less a direct fit. This is of course not totally true when fitting a pumper to a S bike, but enough people have done it and enough adaptor parts are out there.

Also the size. I thought the 36 was for a much bigger bike. Thus you need to size (jetting) everything down to make it work on our 350s

Tools: You'll need a couple tire spoons and I found this item makes tire changes much easier on the knuckles:

Here's one of my more useful tools. Just a 15mm axle welded to a piece of 2" square tubing.



Makes changing tires much easier.

ANOTHER question for yinz guru's out there, Does a more powerful charging system exist for the DR350? I was contemplating on making this bike my "Cold weather" bike as well, and i was kickin around the idea of some additional power sources for possible heating devices? For example, heated grips? or maybe a heated coat? Was curious if one existed so that a coat, per say, could be plugged in without CONSTANTLY draining the battery and straining the alternator system.
any help here guys?

He doesn't list one on his website, but you might call ricky stator and see if he can rewind one with a higher output.

For just hot grips and a heated jacket, you maybe able to change your blinker bulbs to LEDS and have enough to power those two items.


Edit: Found this HO Stator rebuilder here on ADV:

I have made fairly extensive use of a heated jacket on my DR350 and never had a charging problem as a result. Consider a change to 35W (HID?) headlamp and LED tail-light which will free up a few extra watts. Possibly enough for heated grips as well.

Did a google search "dr350 stator", found this. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...30695&page=477
There have been several posts here by guys with dirt models that have rewired and added e start stators to there dirt models, and run heated grips, vests etc. Looks like it's doable.

Blue Frame Paint

Does anybody out there know of a premade paint that would match the early 90's blue paint on the DR350's. I would like to do some touch up on my 1993 model. Hopefully trying to find a spray paint that matches.

Or if anybody knows the manufacturer number on this it would help also. I have a local auto store that can mix paint and put it in a spray can.

Awesome guys, thanks much for info. SO, finding an E-start style stator, switching bulbs to LED's, and headlight to HID will free up enough to run a set of pants an coat? that oughta work good. i bought a really nice set of leather riding gloves for cold weather, then ill get some plastic guards for my bark busters and that oughta keep enough air of my little digits to keep em warm and moveable. lol ill work on digging up LED's for all my stuff. Thanks a bunch guys!

I think it's unlikely that you'll have enough power to run pants and coat. A voltmeter would be a very good investment to ensure that you're not draining the battery when you're running the heated gear.
