    2018 beta 350 race

    Well instead of buying the new 350 race I've got a demo 2018 350rr coming with 15 hours on it. Not getting the pipe for now so That will be a future upgrade

    2018 beta 350 race

    Thanks for the replys everyone. I think if the sound is bearable with the power core and spark arrestor I'd go that way. I live on a farm and mainly ride where there aren't any neighbours to disturb. Also I agree with you on that widebear- part of me thinks I should just go larger motor and not bother with a pipe. Problem is I really like the idea of the 350 motor and also I'm a sucker for a good deal

    This would be ideal. I don’t want to throw money at it for no reason

    2018 beta 350 race

    Im planning to upgrade my drz400e (Australia) for a beta 4t. There's some great deals to be had on runout 18 models including a 350 race that's cheaper than an 19 rr here. I've read many threads on the fork differences and am happy enough to take a chance on the race forks not being too stiff for me. So my questions are in regards to the exhaust- seeing as I will be buying from interstate I wondered if I should add the fmf exhaust straight up and have it mapped (Closest dealer is 4 hours). I believe it is a power core 4 that they will fit to it. If anyone has done a similar mod I'm just curious if it is worthwhile on the my18. I'm not interested if it's just all noise. Reading this forum it seems some have thought it worthwhile and some maybe not so much. I will be using it for flowing single track and some more technical logs for fun with the odd commute between trails. The 2t betas have me interested but I think I'll stick with 4t. I will not have an opportunity to test ride anything unfortunately

    Australian DR-Z owners thread?

    We call them sleepy lizards here in South Aus. See them constantly once it warms up

    Changing My Sprocket For Off Road Use.

    I will add that with 14/47 at 100kph (62mph) it’s only 7000rpm

    Changing My Sprocket For Off Road Use.

    I'm not sure of real figures but from what I understand my Aussie "e" would put out a few more hp standard and the motor is the same (maybe different cams?) but has fcr carb. My point being the motor is designed to handle much more than your restricted setup gives it. Also I have 14/47 on mine and find its comfortable for 100kph on the road - tops out at 140kph. First gear is still fairly tall for some stuff I've played around with so I'm going to try 14/50. I hardly ride on the road at all- never seen sealed road on it

    What did you do to your DRZ400 today?

    Put some rhk pegs on yesterday for a slightly larger platform with more grip. They are 1cm wider and 1cm longer

    Aftermarket levers for Aus 400E?

    Also that seller was really good- they had them in Australia to send straight away. Make sure you loctite the pivot bolt and hex nut head, I lost one but they sent me replacements

    Aftermarket levers for Aus 400E?

    I grabbed these ones for my 18 aussie E http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=401409595619&globalID=EBAY-AU They came quickly and I can’t fault them. I did only want the clutch but used both anyway. The brake lever doesn’t use the little spring that stock one has though
