exactly my plan, same company that makes the gear id like to buy, also makes a very small, nice, LED voltmeter as well. the volt meter will be something i purchase now that i know it exists regardless of my garment choices. vital signs of your machine are something nice to always be able to see. To bad i cant tap into oil pressure somehow eh? lol

Thanks a bunch guys!
Hi Zac,

Bark busters definitely help some, but a lot of wind get's past them. This past year a installed some Hippo Hands over my bark busters and they work very well at keeping the wind off and cold out. The authentic Hippo Hands I fit to my Moto Guzzi I-Convert are of much better design and construction than the cheap knock-offs meant for ATVs. Worth every penny.

Regards,

Gregory Bender

HA, nice! , Thanks for the info and links Mr. Bender!! those look interesting! They even have optional 3M reflective striping for additional safety. Saftey first gentleman!!

Hmm, looks like i have lots of work to do! Anyone got stats on just how much more output the E-start model stator has VS. the non E-start model? If i cannot run heated pantaloons, than no big deal. The coat is way more important in my opinion, as the upper body catch's more wind anyhow. man o man, soon ill have enough stuff ordered and on its way that i can ride year round without any problems! lol

next ill need studded winter tires for the winter commute! lol do they make an actual studdable bike tire? or does one have to go about making their own studded tire? just curious boys, ive seen a ton of different ideas already done!



ALSO:.... Greg, glad to see you posted links in your signature, ill bet this does away with alot of re-typing of your page link. lol

Nevermind guys, answered my own question about studded tires, found a site along with a ton of info on them. Not to terribly priced for a ready to go tire either! not to mention, a lot of DIY materials!

Dont worry about led in the rearturn signals. The rear/brake combo light. HID. Delete the license plate light. ANd LED all the instrument cluster lights. There are a lot fo them in there.

1991 DR350 fork oil per leg by volume

Working on a customers forks replacing the seals. Have looked at 350-specific forums, and here, but haven't found an answer yet.

Sooo, what is the quantity of fork oil per leg (by volume) does this bike take?

TIA

Question DR350SE - Cannot start.

The bike is a DR350SE-X. It would not start. The battery is good. All the lights come on but when I hit the 'magic' button nothing happens only an audible click from the Solenoid. The Starter does not crank.
I have eliminated kill/key switch, kickstand, clutch, nuetral etc. I have shorted/bypassed the Starter relay/solenoid.
I have applied direct +ve current to the starter. No result. Starter will not crank. Is my starter motor toast?
However it will bump start.
Any advice/ideas/suggestions will be much appreciated. Thanks.

Indeed!

I'd also want really low gearing so I could just ease along at a nice slow pace. :>

Check the other end of the neg cable where it grounds to the motor, just above the cs sprocket. If you can, use jumper cables from your car. 90% of the time , it's the battery, even if it tests good. Some previous posts reference brushes in the starter, but doesn't seem likely.
