Not sure, I can't tell the difference when I ride either set except that the cush hub is heavier. The DRZ400 doesn't use a cush drive either.

I thought that in theory the cush drive reduces stresses on engine and transmission parts, especially on the street.

DR350S Front Wheel Question?

My '96 DR350/441SET has a bent front rim I'd like to replace, I have two spares, one off of a '94 DR350SET and another that came off a DR350S made between 1990 and 1995? Does anyone know if either or both of the spares will fit my '96 and what the part numbers are for the wheel bearing/bearings? and seal/seals?

Jeff

That's spare wheels by the way, not spare rims!

That's the theory, but Suzuki did away with them on the DR350 and on the DRZ400. The KLR650 uses cush drive, so does the DR650. I think the XR650L doesn't?

Hi Jeff,

I think you might want to start by comparing the part numbers for each of the models you reference using the spare parts catalogs. These will also provide you the part numbers for the bearings and seals. FYI, I've been very pleased with the quality of the wheel bearing/seal kits from All Balls Racing (available directly through them or from many online stores). You can source the bearings and seals separately through a local supply house, too.

Hope this helps!

Regards,

Gregory Bender

The bike is in 1.7 million pieces right now.

I've been building a work bench from scratch to take my mind off this god-forsaken bike. (yes those brackets are handmade from 1/4" steel and welded in the corners to prevent wobble)



Since I moved out here to the ranch in December I haven't had a workspace for my gunsmithing/reloading (my father-in-law's shop is pretty cramped as you can see in the pics) so I started building a bench from scratch to take my mind off this godforsaken DR. All I'm missing is the pegboard for the back, stain and sealant then I'll have my own work area for tinkering.

The Husky will be in on the 15th. I have the feeling once I can ride a dualsport again my nerves will be a little better. I've been on swing shift this month so I haven't had a chance to pop open a beer and calm my nerves to take another look at the DR. I do have a wire brush and some rtv for putting it back together. So maybe next week I can start reassembling the jug/head/cam/gremlin factory and still try to see what caused it to run so rich.

I've been going through dirt bike withdrawals... shakes, irritability, 1000yd stare, and I'm constantly dreaming of that Terra 650. At this point, I really couldn't give a rat's ass about the DR350 or whether it gets turned into a parts bike for Ebay. If it does, you guys have first dibs on the parts. I already have the new Acerbis tank off and my rack with the ammo cans removed.

Don't think you need to connect the wires. You might have a bad flasher or connection somewhere. Check the connections on the LEDs. They have to be +to power and - to ground. What's funny is, I went out last night to check mine to see if I could see any glow from the left signal (bulb type clearance lights) when the right one was on. No glow, but what's weird is the indicator doesn't work unless the motor's running.

This one looks pretty close (except for wire colors). Probably don't need the resistor on the indicator if you aren't using an LED.

Yes, they did from 90-96 on the street legal models. This was covered earlier, 97-99 SE models do not have cush drive.

If you have the spares there, you can just test fit them to your bike. Should take less than 10 minutes to swap a front wheel. They should fit on there just fine.
