Or... Maybe on the bent end, you can take that cut off wheel and grind away only the part of the shaft that is pushed to the back. Can't tell from the picture if you can get all the bent part or not. Pull the seal and you might get a better idea. You could just cut the bent part off, but that eliminates any possibility of straighting the shaft back to remove it. More than likely, it's bent all the way to the bushing (I hope there's a bushing in there) and you won't be able to get to it. When you get it apart you'll be able to tell where the bend is by pushing the shaft back and forth.
Pretty sure it will be bent all the way back to the case , it's a plain bushing ,meaning there isn't one just alloy , tempting to try heat but the fallout is really bad if things went wrong .

I have another shaft here and looking at it last night came to the same conclusion as you in grinding the clutch end down and pushing it through .
It will be a time consuming project I'm sure, but beats splitting case's

I'll wait the rest of the day to see if anyone else bainstorms my wee problem .

Thanks Guy's .

I would not be afraid to heat the shaft and straighten it enough to remove it or still use it. If you think about it, the case was strong enough to bend the shaft to the rear without breaking and the case looks stronger to the front. You will need to use a pipe that fits over the shaft pretty snug. Heat it on the side of the shaft facing the back of the bike with an acetylene torch :note it doesn't have to be Red hot.,, Hope it works out for you. (I have done this myself more than once, successfully)

This is exactly what I was wanting to hear Mate !

Lucky you chimed in , I have washed the bike and just waiting for it to dry before I was going to pull the clutch side off and go for it with a grinder if I didn't hear from anyone .

Thanks .

OK I have been over thinking this problem , I went out looking for something to fit over the shaft and found a set of handle bars that came close , while trying the fit I thought I would give it a bit of a push to see how mild the steel was and it move and in fact moved straight. That shaft was not the hardened crap I was thinking it was going to be .

Thanks for the input Guys

PM here on ADV or email stretchman67@gmail.com

Thanks.
Look what I jsut picked up this last weekend.
Too bad only one of the frames has a VIN plate, and I want that one. Sorry. Thsi whole missing VIN plate thing seems to very common.


Some other weird things. This looks like some kind of vac operated fuel pump.


Also came with an old school Acerbis tank. Vac petcock.

Sweet.

Speaking of Suzuki VIN's... any idea what a 'D' 4th character indicates? 'S' is Off-Road, and 'N' is for Single-Cylinder Sport Street Bike. I've run across a couple DR350 frames with 'D' for the 4th VIN digit, and I can't find a decoder for that.

http://www.suzukicycles.org/_misc/identification.shtml




Edit - It seems the 'S' (Off-Road) 4th-digit does not indicate that the bike isn't street-legal. Off-Road is merely the style of bike, as compared with 'Multi-Cylinder Sport Street' which is 'G'.

I haven't seen this written anywhere, but 'D' seems to indicate 'Dirt' (not street-legal). The dirt-only DR frames I've looked at carried the 'D' 4th VIN digit, and had the bolt-on tank and no passenger footpeg mounts, which are indicative of dirt-only DR's.

I believe that is the California model charcoal canister.

That would make sense. Seems very stock. Yet I do not have one on mine since I got mine from Nevada. The fact that it was connected to the carb is what threw me.

I wouldn't worry too much about the missing VIN plate, they stamp the frame for a reason. If the DR frames have passenger peg mounts, they are street legal frames from the factory. Another visual clue would be the gas tank mounts, street legal uses the rubber bumpers and the dirt model has the bolt mounts.
