Recommended Posts

hey everyone, picked this up 2 weeks ago and absolutly love it. got it for £750 and its verrrry clean for its age!! the guy who had it before me had just put a piston kit, clutch and FMF fatty on it, and then used it about 3 times as he has just bought a KTM!!! wanted it perfect so totally stripped it and started cleaning!!!! then decided to go down the supermoto route with it!!

That looks like a fun project, it should look good when you are done.

Is it going to be a track bike or can you get it plated for the street?

Nice. I just picked up a plated RMX that I'm going over this winter. I have a set of GS550 wheels that I was going to use to supermoto my DR350, they're going on the RMX now.

Since you have the engine out, at least remove the exhaust valves and give them a good cleaning. It probably wouldn't hurt to pull the cylinder and check the piston, too.

One tip: the exhaust valve tension is set by that "knob" on the left side of the cylinder. Take a punch (or marker or something) and mark where it currently is, so you can reinstall it in the same place. There's a spring under the knob, so it will turn when you loosen those screws.

Correct me if I am wrong, but a good setting is 1/2 to 1 turn clockwise, if you don't do the punch first (which assumes the prior owner had it set right in the first place). Is that right?
