It'll still be lighter than stock
Another build thread!!
Good luck. I'll be watching with interest!!
Glad to see that you went with some of my recommendations, that thing is going to be sweet! Did I ever send you the pictures of the other DR with the white frame? Should look really good with the new white Safari tank.
I'll be following this build closely, so if you have any questions just post them here and I will chime in when I get a chance.
Let's get crackin'!
Good luck. BTW are the cans going in paralell or in serial fashion? Either way three cans in one DR will be something I will watching out for
Cool, if you ever need an extra pair of hands, give me a call. How did you manange to get 3 of them? It took me weeks before I got my hands on 1.
Mezo, this will be a project and a half, can't wait
this looks like fun
Nice color scheme and Nice tires. Do you know what tires those are?
Also is there a link or a write up for the freebie version of the gsxr can mod? I have a gxsr can sitting and cannot seem to afford or justify an expensive mid pipe at this time.
are the KTM EXC clamps a direct bolt on? Stem? Bearings?
There is a bearing that goes where 1 is. mirror image of the lower bearing (on mine they are the same bearing). You may/will need to get your DR tube machined to accept the KTM bearing.
2 & 3 fit together with the top nut, torqued and then the pinch bolt is tightened.
The race is the "cup' the bearing rests in/on.
Cup is also a common term yes.
Bottom bearing looks good to me. You will need an upper bearing for a DR and machine out the inside to fit in the KTM stem if that is a possibility.
That or get a KTM bearing and it sounds like the DR race/cup will accept the KTM bearing which is far easier and zero work.
Awesome that they match up
i always figured it was because the bearing "race" around in them
Are the forks there yet?
What are you going to do for a rear wheel. I'm on the lookout for a 18" dr350 wheel (with cush drive)
Panniers should be in before friday
The tires are Dunlop 606. They whistle on the tar, and if I get 4000km out of them I'd be happy.
I went for the kientech kit. Get the stainless flange because the aluminium one starts to leak after a while.
what panniers ?
im happuy to get 3500 klms from a D606 rear
OK, so the KTM EXC triples are a direct bolt on, right? The EXC bearings and stem will fit into the DR frame with the DR races, right?
Sorry to hijack.....I am just getting ready to a DR build up myself, and plan to do a similar complete front end swap. Does anyone know of a upgraded shock from a DRZ or MX bike will fit?
I've read it on some forums that the dr350 uses the same hub as the dr650 only with a 18" rear wheel. Like to use that because of the availability of tires when you're somewhere near the edge of the world.
If you measure the ID OD and the height of the bearing you need. I'll look through some books see if there's some standard bearing that matches up.
motosport frames with mtd boxes. Think I will mod the frames so the're symetrical and connect them for extra sturdiness.
Yeah bit disappointed with the tires, I was hoping the would last like the trailwings (7000km)
