Bad-mod's dr350

hey guys heres my dr350 soon to be big bored after blowing the clutch.

Bit o history the bike was a wedding present from my best man BUT
it did not go broken wires two stroke needle in the pumper carb insane huge main jet buggered shocks buggered tires buggered susp linkages crappy paint crappy super trap ... you get the picture
i have now painted it replaced all the suspension bushes, painted the frame, put two newish tires on it, new wheel bearings, made new foot pegs (replaced the rubber inserts with welded in steel bushes), big header made new exhaust, cut down the rear mud gaurd, new brake pads and finaly got the jetting close.
three hard core trail rides in and the clutch died and i mean died complete with crack in the basket I later found out that it had been running on some shitty old car motor oil 15w40 of some shit

I have found a new clutch "thanks Mr Bender" and after measuring the piston and big end ect have decided to go the whole hog. After all it's prob the only thing i haven't had to fix.

here are some photos though you may want to see hope you enjoy any feed back would be awesome .

oh and since i can't get a vortex im gonna make my own version ill chuck in some pics of that to,oh and a box job like pablos. Shot pablo!!.

Your best man did you one hell of a favour, mate.

Your garage time during this crucial point in your new marriage will set the tone for the rest of your married life, trust me.

You owe him several beers, even if the bike is causing you grief.

It doesn't look bad to me! Sure, I appreciate the lovely DR350 builds with fresh paint, polished aluminum, powder coated rims, and all the lovely accessories. They look great.

My DR is nothing like them. I try to keep it in solid mechanical condition and then I just ride the thing. I have other bikes I keep clean, but not the DR. I prefer it dirty and ready to ride :>

Regards,

Gregory Bender

Sorry, I got the list of what you've done confused with a to-do list. So did you rebuild the shock? I need to do that to mine soon.

Yea it was regular motor oil without the friction modifiers for the wet clutch.
From what i hear it needs to be propper motobike oil otherwise it buggers your clutch ?

Just to clarify: regular motor oil HAS friction modifiers which should be avoided with a wet clutch, not the other way around. Friction modifiers make your clutch slip.
