    Or if someone has the right connections, convince Suzuki to do a one off run for a group buy

    Just buy a used one, get the gears and part the rest out. In most cases you’ll even come out ahead.

    I've got a spare worn pumper carb on the shelf. You can have the bowl if it's helpful.
    For that matter, you can have the whole thing. It was working when pulled, but the slide and body are well worn, and the fuel screw tube has been broken and repaired.
    I was keeping it for parts, but I don't even run a pumper anymore.

    Suzuki could care less about a small group of people wanting to buy nearly 30 year old transmission parts at this point :) And I highly doubt the demand is there to support a custom gearset run. That works well when you've got a much larger rider base - DR650 or XR650L come to mind - but would be very impossible with the DR350.

    Of course, anything is possible if you have enough money... but you're that's the sort of quantity of money ill spent on a 20+ year old dual sport.

    the factory would rather we buy new DRZ400s or DR650s to replace our DR350s
    i'd wager they wouldnt offer special gear sets for ANY model

    You sir are a mad scientist, through and through. I salute your efforts, and will be waiting patiently for your findings.

    Hello, i have a 98 350SE with an USD front fork conversion. I thought the forks were from an 89-95 RM250. I ordered new racetech inner and outer bushings and they aren't correct. The diameters of both are correct, 45mm. The new inners have a raised race on the inside to fit into a corresponding groove on the shock tube. The new outers are 1/4 inch too tall compared to the origionals. The part numbers are correct on the website. And idea what these are off of?

    That is not a 89 for sure, 89s are still conventional. The next gen 90+ look slightly different too. The lower end esspecially

    Some guy in NZ wanted wider ratios for his DR-Z400, maybe even a 6 speed... he got them made in England. The figure of 600 quid sticks in my mind. Was written up in the last 7 years or so.

    I suppose it will have to remain a pipe dream then. Would love a wide ratio dr441, but a dr250s bottom end sells for ~600 AUD
