Does anybody know the difference between the rear rim of a pre 97 and the 97 and later? For example, Warp9 sells a rim replacement for 97-99 dr350s and not earlier.

Why wouldn't the generic 36 hole rim work on the older models? I think they are laced the same and are all 36 hole 18x2.15

I'm surprised but indeed the rim is a different part number for pre-1997 to post-1997....the hub is also a different part number (in both cases looked at the SE version - dual sport), so the angle of the holes may be different. And that may be why the listing you are looking at has the restriction to post 1997. Both are the same size (2.15x18 as you already said).

Is there a big difference - can't say. And I've laced rims to hubs (on street bikes mind you) without considering that possibility (when dealing with old bikes you don't always have a lot of options).....

Mark

edit: it just occurred to me that perhaps the change in hub/part number was to reconcile parts to a common set between multiple models....will have to look what else uses those parts.

If the rear bearings and/or axle part number were the same, it may work or at least require using a different axle. Call Warp9 and ask. I called them about something and the guy I spoke with was knowledgeable and friendly.

The 97-99 DR350SE models got rid of the cush drive rear hub and went with the solid mounted hub that was standard on the dirt model DR.

I was fortunate to have talked to someone who mentioned they had an aluminum air box and 440 kit in there garage. Someone showed up to buy his DR but was low balling him. He decided he would rather sell those parts to me. Very nice guy, very lucky me!

Yeah I knew about the vortex, I just could not find any one of them available. They may be easy to copy with enough time, effort and $$$.

I was going to take it to a good welder I know and see how much it would cost to replicate. I spoke to Jesse @ Keintech about it and he said the cost nowadays is to great.

Speaking of Jesse.. just left him a vm, and sent him an email regarding the DR350 exhausts. Hopefully he calls me back with good news.

Confirmed the late rim is the same part number as the early dirt rims, so that means any rim meant for a pre-1997 DR-S model (not SE) should be interchangeable with the later DS bikes.

Do you know why. I thought on most cases cushy drives are desirable. Even Dakar racers prefer them. I guess most DR.owners wanted more of a dirt oriented bike thus the dirt shock and cartridge fork. Is there really advantage to a cushy drive hub.
