    This bike is a super easy bike to ride. I took it out on exactly the same trail as my usual old WR250F and was able to ride it with more speed and confidence. I was expecting the Suzuki to be more difficult to ride with the stiffer springs, heavier weight and bigger engine but the opposite was true.
    The thing that really set the two bikes apart was the confident handling at the front end of the Suzuki. Whenever it hit a large rock I could find the front deflected to an extent and having to steer the bike back onto the trail. The Yamaha tends to get horribly rattled on the same obstacles. It feels like the wheel gets deflected sideways and it's a violent, slipping over feeling (to be fair to the WR it could be a suspension problem and I plan to work on it).
    The heavier weight of the DR-Z gives it a stable feel on the trail and irons out the stiff bumps somewhat. The only time the extra weight was really noticeable was when the bike was airborne and flicked a bit. The suspension was smooth, responsive and predictable.
    The engine was very smooth, with plenty of torque. It's also pretty responsive for a 400cc single and I'm keen to see what it's like when worn in. Minimal gear changes were necessary since the sweet spot is huge. What it puts up with before it stalls makes it very learner friendly.
    The ergonomics are very comfy for my height. The height of the bike (with stock seat, sag not set) was very comfortable with my 80cm (31.5") inseam. I found my back a little fatigued standing with the stock handlebars, but I did have a tendency to try to get my weight back on this bike. I can't really explain why I was doing that, I can only guess it's because it's geometry feels different to what I'm used to and I'm compensating unnecessarily. The ergonomics of the Suzuki actually seem more suited to my size than the WR250F (2002), which seems like it's for someone a little taller.
    A negative is the lack of a 6th gear. For trail riding it doesn't need one, but if you want a bike you can ride on the highway and the trails (which is pretty much the purpose of road legal dirt bike) this would be something that would make you look around rather than get this bike. The looks of this bike are ok, but not stunning. You know it's a dual sport from the looks. The stock graphics are attractive and minimalist. If you buy at the right time of year (pre-Christmas promotions) they throw in a bonus enduro kit by redemption with spark arrestor, Suzuki bash plate, Suzuki radiator guards and Barkbusters 'Ego' hand guards. The Ego model is a low profile small model meant for shorty levers. The stock DR-Z doesn't have shorty levers so I think 'Jet' would have been a better choice so that there is no buzzing against them. The bash plate also makes a hideous rattling noise that turns heads. It was coming from the rear bracket rattling against the cross-member it rests on and I can't do it up any firmer or adjust it. So I solved the problem with a piece of foam beer can cozy.

    The rider:
    5'8"
    65 kg (143 lb)
    39 year old female
    Moderate fitness level
    Intermediate level trail rider

    The bike set up:
    It has an SDG tall seat and Moose Hybrid footpegs with rear offset as the only aftermarket changes.
    The exhaust and jetting are unchanged and the road restrictor remains installed in the muffler.

    I like the bike a lot and I can't wait to put more hours in, then eventually modify it once I know how it is stock.

    Good bike for being dug out of a recycle pile. Would smoke that KZ650 on dirt. Ring locator pin migrated through the transfer port and that was that. Best $50 of fun I've had legally.

    It's pretty good so far but I the bike spitts and the previous owner said if it continues spitting the engine would melt,so it's to rich on the air to fuel mixture, but I don't know how to tune it

    Great value, do-it-all dual sport.  Not a performance machine, but an endless number of modifications are out there.  You can turn this bike into anything you want.  Super easy to work on yourself, and a great first bike for an aspiring self-taught mechanic.  Mine is used for anything from light adventure, to rugged OHV trails.

    My first real 2T. I bought it in a box and built it up. I sent the cylinder and head to Millennium Technologies. they did a big bore kit and shaved the cylinder and head, made it for single track per my request. I rebuilt the lower end and crank myself, new rod. I had to learn how to jet, it ran horrible after I got it together had drool running out of the exhaust. Bike came from Canada to Texas and the previous owner blew it up and sold it for junk, that's where I got it. I hate seeing it go to waste so I bought it for 250.00.  I don't know how much I have in it now don't matter to me. I don't plan on selling it. I had a older Honda XR250 that I rode for years, after I rode this bike I sold my old red pig, after 1 year of never riding.  I installed a 2010 RMZ 250 front fender and number plate on it. I installed a FMF turbine core 2 silencer, I ride in Forestry land need the spark arrestor.  Bike came with a bills pipe and shorty silencer, I love the way it sounds with the FMF. I trail ride with it so I added a kickstand which on a 2002 is hard to find a bolt on.

    Good fun for my 35 mile twisty coastal commute twice a week and the occasional diversion from the tarmac along the way.

    Overall feels like something that is bulletproof and could survive a few seasons of the Walking Dead.

    this bike is the "off road/dirt bike" 350DR model dedicated to USA market (the DR'R, I guess ?), it was imported and homologized in FRANCE by A.C.M.
    About my bike : only the frame is of the genuine 1998 ACM 350ST ... the engine is from a older model (1991, 1992, 1993 ?) conventional DR 350.
    Equipped with a tuned up BST33 carb', it got only one throttle cable, kustom liberated air box with HiFlo foam filter ; big exhaust pipe (header), CRD muffler.

    Love the bike since brand new. Only things I would like to see change are an update to it with a 6 spd, 450+ FI cc and possibly an aluminum frame.
