    I dont know about a 99 but on my 96 there is a spacer on the hub in between the caliper. Number nine.

    From the thread on TT I made about mine

    'I live in CT and $1,700 is pretty steep for a '97 with 11K.

    I bought a '91 a couple of years ago with 2,800 miles in excellent condition (only difference from a '97 is electric start) for $550 in the month of October.'

    Anytime I've seen a street legal DR350 for under 1,000 dollars something was wrong with it, or it had 21k miles or something like that.

    About the parts wearing, I agree, I went from full motocross riding and woods racing on an RM250, to my DR350 doing a little bit of dirt, and moslty pavement and am amazed at how some stuff like bearings and air cleaners have stayed in better shape. My brakes are wearing faster though, it may be becuase it's heavier and I'm going faster on the roads than I did in the dirt.

    The 60Cx is the only GPS that I use. I've had it for several years and it seems just right for me. It has the capability to record an almost unlimited number of tracks which I use to create maps that I can share with other Garmin users. I've made a fairly good but basic map of the Copper Canyon area in Mexico with roads not shown on any other map or mapping software.

    The screen is small. Don't plan on reading it while moving.

    It doesn't replace a $100 Nuvi for street use, but in the DS area it's the most popular GPS garmin sells.

    There is tons of info on GPS in the Layin down Tracks forum.

    I just got my fuel tank hardware from Acerbis. Brian sent me the mounts for the frame, fuel line and fitting, and two petcocks! Thumbs up to Acerbis for helping me out.

    Here in Middle Missouri, I paid $1600 for a 1998 DR350se with 1800 miles on it. Bike was all original and as you can imagine in pretty good shape.

    I just want to tell everyone what a heck of a nice guy or fellow inmate Shearboy is. I was experiencing some carb problems with my pumper and could not get it figured out. I think it is plain wore out. Well, or esteemed compatriot Shearboy, came to my rescue and shipped me his old, but not worn out, pumper!!!:clap I have thanked him through PM but I really want everyone here to know what a good guy he is. May this good Karma come back to you ten fold my friend!!!:freaky



    Sorry if I embarrassed you SB but I had to say that...lol

    I've got a 91 DR350S... Rode to work this morning (8 miles stop and go) bike started fine (couple more kicks than normal but hey it's 20 degrees outside) problem is it died as soon as I would let off the throttle (below 2500rpm ish). I cranked the idle screw so it would hopefully rev higher (like maybe 2000rpm) but it would die as soon as I let it go below 2500ish... The bike was hot by the end of my ride and it was still doing the same thing...

    I've run the bike in these temps before should I have just let it warm up longer before starting my ride? I haven't changed anything else other than it's coler and I rode longer than normal (for the temp)...

    I have a 96 SE model that I picked up last April for $1450. It was mechanically sound put cosmetically challenged. After the riding season ended I stripped it completely and painted the frame and engine. I also changed out most of the bearings and added stainless brake lines, fat bars, wide pegs, and bunch of other odds and ends from Kientech. I figure the current value including my labor to be right around $1450.00<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    No it's made by Pro-Moto. Called a "Rack-It" rack. I dont know if they are still available, It came with the bike.
