    DR 350 No compression

    Yeah....I’ve noticed that too. With my 1990 DR350S if I let it sit awhile it really acts as if it has no compression at first when I try to start it. More than my other bikes.

    Steering damper on Suz DR350 and DR350S

    I am thinking of buying a WER steering damper and putting it on my 1990 DR350S. I am hoping it will calm down the squirrelly behavior in the Baja Sur sand where I live. Does anyone have experience with steering dampers on their DR’s?

    1990 DR350S

    I put the keintech air box with his ceramic coated header with FMF Powercore w/quiet insert. Also the pumper carb he sold me. At least the bike gets going now....it had a hard time keeping up with Honda XR250L’s before. I consider it well worth it. The Powercore noise level was obnoxious before the insert. I really wanted the Q muffler but it was no longer available. Too bad Jesse retired ....Keintech was a great resource. Check out Procycle in Oregon....another great DR350 and DR350S resource.

    Yeah-in the ‘80’s when I lived in Bakersfield we used to ride those trails a lot and I remember my friend cussing me out probably on Long Dave...”You’re not supposed to do the hard trails at the end of the day” after a big day on “those” trails. Also spent the night at the old Snowy Creek water crossing when my foolish friend thought he could cross a swollen creek after an October rain that would have swept him and his bike down the torrent if I hadn’t gotten in to help save him. Memorable times.

    83' XR200R Showa Shock- rebuild or replace?

    Sounds like a good deal on renovating the old shock. I would try it and see how you like it[emoji106]

    Cal-Fab Swingarm question XR200R

    I had the swing arm heliarced after it cracked in 1989 and then it cracked again in same spot right away. Then I put the boat anchor stock swingarm back on where it remains today. About twenty years ago I contacted Scott’s down in Pasadena about the swingarm and they referred me to a person who heliarced it again for free but this welder told me I needed to get it re-heat treated or it would crack again. Hence my search for someone to do just that. I sure as hell don’t want to go through the work of putting it back on to just have it crack[emoji848]

    Cal-Fab Swingarm question XR200R

  13. This is 2018 and if we want places to ride we have to recognize sound is an issue....so please keep the sound reasonable[emoji106]

    Can we stop with the bullshit now?

    Tomac is a force of nature....MX racer extraordinaire....I am not a fan of his but there is no denial of his hard work paying off[emoji848] I hope to see more close racing this season and I want to go to Unadilla this year and see it happen.
