    I am gonna have to dump that dyno jet kit and rejet it again but I seriously had a hell of a time dialing it in. How did you work your way around the fuel screw issue?

    On another note my video from my ride today is up! It's raw and unedited. I had 2 more clips but I am going to edit them together and take out all the sitting around and talking.

    The Keintech fuel screw is the one listed for the DR350.

    I thought the one they sold was for the TM pumper carb. the CV carb has that recessed screw with the brass fitting over it which was scary to drill out.

    call jesse at kientech he has more answers than there are questions on dr bikes

    its not to scary to drill out, tape the bit and just leave about 1/8" tip exposed

    Didn't one of yours have the CV BSR 32 CARB? And I wish I had thought of that when I initially did it. Its opened up now.

    i've had 2 2007s both had the cv carb:cry

    and 2 dr350s with a cv carb:cry

    an air screw adjustment does wonders

    G'day fellas, I picked myself up a DR250R a few days ago and cant wait to hit the tracks with it. The previous owner has not given it much attention for the last few years so I have decided that before I register it im going to tear it down and re paint the frame as the coastal salt air has started taking its toll on the frame and many of the bolts. I have breased through the 121 pages of this thread in the last couple of days and now im just keen to start Modding the old girl. I will share a pic of my ride when I get to my computer.

    Cheers, Ruff.

    And after about an hour of tinkering

    This thread has given me a heap of inspiration. Only thing I NEED to put it through registration after the clean up is hand grips and a new headlight. It currently has a Acerbis DHH. On it which I doubt will pass a blue slip (roadworthy).

    If any any fellow Aussies who have retrofitted aftermarket headlights would be interested in swapping or selling their original shoot me a P.M

    Congrats, me and another Djebel rider are live pretty close to you. Let's do a ride out to Chiba sometime, there are a few fun unpaved roads out there.

    Nice to make your acquaintance. I looked in the Asia forum and only found crickets for Japan. I have heard that Chiba is the place to get away from the city; I would love to get out there sometime. Since I am military, I have to take the Experienced Rider Course before they will let me loose on the locals. I couldnt go tomorrow, so I have to wait 2 weeks. I'm stuck riding on base until then. Sucks.

    Thanks for the welcome. I wasn't sure I would find a place here since it a bit of an oddball, at least in the US.

    KLM welcome. I am army so I know what you mean about the basic riders course. Back from iraq I had to wait a month to ride because of it. Enjoy the machine!

    how do you check the fuel level at the bowl?I already drilled the brass my question was about the carburetor and fuel screwI could not get to the fuel screw while the carburetor was on the bike. I am going to order the screw from the post above in hopefully that will help.
