I'd go for a set - especially if the "per unit" price keeps dropping. This deal is $102/ea.

Popping out of gear I am not sure, is it 2nd? Freinds dr does that too. It was not the shift drum bolt for him, but they are known to be lose. Can't find neutral is common. Most likey the thrust washers needs replacing. Some need to have little taken off the back of the clutch basket, some find that adding a small shim works too.

The Dirt doesn't have a vac petcock and are pretty robust. You can test the petcock by running it into a bottle wtih the bike on a incline. The dirt need a "T" vent mod so don't bother chasing that aspect. Assume it was full of gas. Sounds like a float height issue. But beware that is the road that lead rugged E down the path to hell. Maybe jsut start with a good carb cleaning.

Never understood why frame guards are so desireable? A little worn paint?

How 'bout completely gone paint? Rusty metal instead, that keeps on wearing down. Not absolutely horrible, but:

If it's that important to you, why not just make some. Guess I should be a little more constructive here. Weld up some tubing the size and shape of the frame....get some 1 or 2 mm HDPE....use a heat gun or put it in the oven and pretty soon you've got some. Or get some thin sheet AL from the home improvement store (mobil home skirting should work) cut some strips and wrap them around the frame. It can't be that hard.

I will already be making my own case savers out of aluminum. If I cant find frame guards cheap enough I will be making my own. Either aluminum or I will buy some thick plastic, heat it up and mold it into what I want.

Does anyone know where to find a case saver for the DR350?

The chain came apart on the previous owner of mine, snapped the upper mount off the case by the sprocket, but there's a few threads left, enough I think I can get it to hold a bolt anyway.

Anyhow it didn't come with a case saver, and I've been looking around for a replacement that I can rig up but have had no luck thus far.

Speedo drive

My speedo drive has started squeaking like a bastard, to the point people are turning round to see what the noise is coming from... Riding home from work the other night my colleague nearly fell off his fazer thou cos he was laughing so hard at the noise
I've tried spraying lube spray round it but no joy. I guess it's a sealed unit and I can't do anything other than buy a new one at nearly 100 quid sterling or is there a trick I'm missing

Please help! I can't cope with the noise anymore... Weeee-ah-weeeee-ah-weeeee-ah-weeeee-ah

Have a quirk with my 96 DRSE, when I turn my ignition off the bike keeps running, the lights go out and the bike won't stop until I turn it off from the kill switch. I thought it was ok to ride like that off road, but I burnt up a cdi unit a few months ago and now I want to fix this problem.

Anyone have any ideas where to start looking?

When I resurrected my '92 a couple years back, the speedo drive was not lubricated - more like gummed. Ran some brake cleaner thru it, then mashed as much good grease in via the internal gaps as I could. Also took the core out of the cable housing and cleaned/greased that. Works fine - no noise or needle wiggle.

Good luck.

It's not a sealed unit. Remove it and lube it from the wheel side.

The ignition switch on your bike does exactly the same thing as the kill switch. When it is in the OFF or locked position it simply grounds the CDI. Most likely the lead from the CDI or the ground lead from the switch is unplugged. I don't have a wiring diagram handy but it will be obvious if you look at one. I do recall the ground lead from the ignition switch is a separate single wire that plugs to the Suzuki standard black with white stripe ground circuit.
