    Other high mileage DR's?

    alright guys lets see ur dr's! put up some pics!

    Yeah I just finished that mod... was a pain because the gear I had was a 25T not a 23T like I needed. It is no longer available from suzuki either.. found one on ebay though. a guy from adv rider forum helped me figure out what the issue was. I never knew there were like 3 different gearing setups. it went together smoothly but as soon as it started it sounded like it was about to grenade.

    Couple of DR350 questions

    I am very thankful you posted that I had enough time to cancel the order I placed for a JTR808.41 and I need JTR822.41 I just reordered what I need to to keep running the Cush wheel fo now.  If I decided to use the Cush wheel as my off road what is the largest number of teeth I can put on it. I the non Cush wheel came with a 50T on it. So that was helpful if I use that in the dirt.

    Couple of DR350 questions

    Ok 👍 looking at that post you seem to be pretty comfortable tearing these bikes down lol. Every time I have pulled a swing arm it has been a nightmare. Granted I have only done it on a 89 cr125, a 92 cr250, and a 80 xs400 road bike. All three ran worked just fine before I pulled them apart but all three I had to replace way more than I ever intended to. From stuck bolts etc. I really can’t afford to have this bike down and I know I can’t afford all new bearings and bolts. Are there some essentials that pretty much always go bad that I should have in hand before I start the install? Good news is I have never seen so many zerk fittings for grease on a bike so I am hoping it is still pretty good and I can just re-grease the shit out of it.

    So am I understanding right that rear sprockets are NOT interchangeable between Cush drive and non-Cush drive?

    How terrible is pulling the swing arm on these?

    Couple of DR350 questions

    Ok I just figured out that the extra wheel I ordered to have one ready to go for off roading and one for street are different. I have a stock 18” rim on a Cush drive hub that came originally on my 1995 DR350SE and I have a 19” rim laced to a non Cush drive hub that I just bought off eBay. Didn’t think about that when I ordered it off eBay I just saw 97 dr350se so I bought. I wanted a 19” rim because I have a 19” screw tire for ice that is too worn for my son to race on but still fine for me to play on. Not spending 4-500 to have a 18” ice tire made. I also have a couple of never run 19” MX tires that came with his new bikes before we set them up for flat track. Couple more questions now. Do I need different spacers for the non Cush drive? I am guessing so. Is the spacers all I will need? Gearing wise would it be better to make my 18” Cush wheel my off road wheel, buy a cheap 18” MX tire and run road gearing with the larger 19” wheel to get my rpms down? Now that I think about it all I am saving is the cost of a MX tire because I will be mounting the ice tire each season either way. Does kind of suck that it is a colored rim so it doesn’t match the front for the 90% street riding I do.

    Thank you for the sprocket link. Cush wheel? What does that mean?

    Couple of DR350 questions

    My swing arm guard is gone. lost it last night didn't notice until I started out slow at a stop sign and heard a slight grinding noise. Chain is on the swing arm. need that fixed ASAP because the bike is my main mode of transportation. I ordered it from a dealership I work with from their cost of $26.25 but my first question is do I have to pull the swing arm to install it????? Next, I keep seeing people talk about putting a 16T on the front I couldn't find where to buy one. I have Vortex Racing looking into adding a 15T and a 16T to their line up right now but if they can't where can I get a 16T front that will fit? What is the lowest tooth rear sprocket I can fit on a 1995 DR350 SE? what is the best gear ratio that can get me to 75ish at 6000rpm or under? is that realistic or am i dreaming?

    DR350 Kick Start Conversion...

    Does anyone have any of the pictures from the German site saved?? It is no longer up. I need to know if when I installed everything it misaligned something. It runs but sounds horrible. Like the kick start is not disengaging.

    Dr350se Kickstart mod boondoggle?

    Ok so I just finished the mod to add a Kickstarter on to my electric start Dr350se. Something is wrong. It seems to me like the kick start is not disengaging. When I start the bike with the electric start (haven’t tried the kick yet) the engine is making a winding noise. It sounds like it is spinning the gear on the kick starter. What did I do wrong?
