new DR350 for me

Recommended Posts

so, I've got a line on a DR350... a '96(?) SE. I've been trying to find out what they actually weigh for one thing. also what to look for when I go see it (400 miles away), what to ask about before I drive all the way out there too. I'm an aircraft  mechanic & owned bikes for over 50 years (old guy) so pretty comfortable with the standard stuff... what are the quirky bits? also, I have a choice of tanks. stock or what the owner thinks is a Clark. I had a Clark on my DRZ & liked it pretty well but I'm picking up feelers that indicate its not the best. any opinions on that? thanks guys.

Its pretty much just standard things youd check for on an older motorcycle. Unlike the DR650 with its NSU bolt and upper roller issues, there isnt really anything specific for a DR350. Some models have had an issue with a pin on the balancer drive gear pin working its way out and grenading the engine, but its extremely rare
