You know where the vultures roost.
we're already circling
thanks for the link, that could definitely be the issue, i think it makes the most sense. time to get the multi meter out. Though I don't think the x model has two pick-up coils, according to the wiring diagram I looked at.
To change the oil I drained both the case and the frame, and removed the oil filter. I also removed and cleaned the filter screen in the frame. I reassembled with a new oil filter and added 1.8 quarts of bel-ray 10-40 dino oil. Its noteworthy that it was running the same before the oil change and filter cleaning. I run premium gas in all my motorcycles. I didn't trust the gas that came in the bike so I used it in my lawn mower and refilled the tank with fresh premium. It is worth checking the timing, I just don't want to compromise the valve cover gasket until I have eliminated the possibility of an electrical fault.
I thought all models 94+ use two pickups.
The good news is: There's no valve cover gasket.
The bad news is: You need good sealant to put it back together leak free and should probably replace the top sealing washers too.
If you don't know the engine's history, pulling the valve cover to check the timing and possibly re-torque the head is a good idea anyway.
The first fabricated steel DR350 footpeg lowering mounts are complete. Is anybody here located near Salem, Oregon?
Would you consider making these to fit the CRF style pegs?
I'm in Portland. How much do these lower the pegs by? No lower than the skidplate, right? I'm 6' so standing feels a bit scrunched. I don't like the idea of handlebar risers though so this interests me.
What's the purpose of that?
Inexpensive and high quality big pegs that are easy to find.
There's quite a few models on the market for the DR
@JNS Engineering I need a set. How much heavier are they than stock? How much lower?
Been wanting to ask a question. Have you tested these using a kickstart bike? On the stock mounts, the kickstarter smacks the mount and that's what stops the lever from going any further. Probably wouldn't want it to strike the "fork" part of the mount.
You guys can breathe now.. I was loading up to get that dr... 5am this morning waiting for my cup of coffee...
I get a text... "I just sold the BIKE!"
I should've went up last night!..
I missed out..
At least the wife is happy about it...lol
Is that a good deal?
just made an ebay buy
all is well
thats a strange carb, perhaps for a 2-stroke. i wouldn't try to make it work on a DR
If it's a good one and you really want it - then maybe. The carb. could be worn out internally and you would never know until you stripped it down. I'd pay no more than half the asking price.
If you are looking to "upgrade" a model with the CV carb, I wouldn't bother.
EDIT: Looked again after plugeye's comment and it is not a DR carb. Probably just some junk that got "thrown in" with the purchase. Don't touch it unless you are a real masochist.
