    DR650 engine in DR350 frame?

    I have a 39 tooth on the rear and a 15 tooth DRZ sprocket on the front. The top speed of the bike comes out around 132 kph so cruising at 110-120 is not that comfy

    DR650 engine in DR350 frame?

    Hey Plugeye, The reason or goal is this, I have a 1999 DR350X that is plated (road registered) and I love the bike to bits it has 17inch rims and is a semi supermotard it carves like a boss in the hills. I have played with the sprockets and am running the longest ratio on standard over the counter sprockets however the engine being a single seems to be over stressed. The engine is due for a rebuild and DR350 engines are not as common here in New Zealand parts aren’t ubiquitous where are DR650 is thick on the ground and second hand engines regularly up on our e-bay equivalent trademe.co.nz And I won’t lie the thought of more power (insert the Tim the Tool Man laughter) is appealing. I could invest in a 440cc kit but again cost of that VS a second hand DR650 engine comes out to about the same and in my opinion would be an easier and more stable long term solution as I am worried that the again the 440 kit is just going to stress the bottom end and I’ll be cracking into the engine on a regular basis where as the DR650 engine will always be less stressed. So that is the plan the bike is not going to be used as a MX bike but the pirrelli MT’s RS are a fantastic tyres for carving hills and for adventure riding as I regularly go from the tarmac on the hills into the surrounding forestry and climb fire breaks. So yeah.... Hopefully if I get enough information and if not then I’ll have to do it the hard way and buy a 650 engine and when my 350 pops and just work from there.

    DR650 engine in DR350 frame?

    I have searched through the forum and am surprised to find no information on this subject. Has anyone done it or know of it been done? Aside from the obvious size differences the engines do look similar and the mounting points seem in the right area code lol :-) Any other reasons why it wouldn’t fit? Any information or even a point in the right direction would be appreciated!

    starting a 250r

    All good the only reason I know is I also kicked and twisted the throttle and after many flooding’s and getting suck out on trails and getting frustrated I finally got shown the process from the local Honda dealer and I too was very red faced and embarrassed when the service tech taught me ........ as they say you are never to old or to proud too learn!! :-)

    starting a 250r

    Firstly the OP’s bike and your bike being newer that 09 should both be fuel injected (EFI) so twisting the throttle (priming) does absolutely nothing. On fuel injected crf250r’s the starting procedure is this: 1. Make sure there is sufficient fuel in the the tank 2. If the bike is dead cold (first start after a long while) you need to use the cold start(choke but not really a choke bc of EFI but anyway) it is a yellow pull knob, it will be located on the left side under the main part of the frame inline with your inner thigh when seated. 3. You will need at least three good kicks to prime the fuel pump and get enough power/electric charge for all the electronics your kill switch light should give a brief flicker when the system is ready 4. The forth and fifth kicks and all subsequent kicks should be done lining up just past TDC as they are your starting kicks. 5. At this point DO NOT TOUCH THE THROTTLE!!EFI is preset and will regulate the air/fuel mixture. If you twist the throttle at this point it will muck up the sequence and likely flood. 6. After three or so kicks (6 total now with prime kicks) if all is good bike should be running and the kill switch lights should be glowing bright and constant. The bike will be idling high at this point and if there are no faults in the EFI computer the kill switch light will go out. 7. Let bike idle for 2mins or so. 8. If bike is warm enough push cold start knob back in and proceed to having a great ride! Your welcome.

    Standard sprocket sizes on DR350se?

    Cheers plugeye yeah mine is not a cush drive so was hopeful for a smaller rear sprocket seeing as I am running a 17” rear. Hopefully I can source one in NZ What brand is yours? Might look online if I can’t one

    Excellent thanks for that what it your top speed?

    Standard sprocket sizes on DR350se?

    Anyone know the standard tooth count of DR350se front and rear sprocket? I bought a DiD standard sprocket and chain kit but the ratio is way too close at a 110kph the engine is nearing valve float. I expected it to be closer as I put 17” sumo rim on the back and 110/90-17 tyre Currently the sprockets are 14 front and 42 rear Any info on sprocket combinations that others are using would be appreciated Cheers

    Can you Identify this wire?

    Update: I took the DR350 for a ride last night! Whoohoo so I connected the green/red wire to the black/white and there was no issue with the CDI It shifted perfectly thanks Plugeye for pointing me in the right direction!

    Can you Identify this wire?

    Ok so I checked out the DR650 wiring diagram and sure enough plugeye is right the diode is on there! Yay! However the wire color is still different but geez it’s close enough so I am going to assume it is the Side stand switch wire and by the looks of it you just have to connect it to the black with white trace to complete its circuit. So fingers crossed it works as I am not looking forward to popping a CDI!

    I will check the DR650 wiring diagram out might have a clue to what the wire is cheers for the lead plugeye I never thought to check out other models!

    Can you Identify this wire?

    Hi guy I bought this 1999 DR350 not “S” or “SE” just a DR350 for $700. It is a standard road going model not a dirt to road conversion. I am from New Zealand and here we import JDM ( Japanese Domestic Model) vehicles which is what this DR350 is. My problem is the wiring has been hacked and chopped as it was a road bike originally that was registered and plated but was converted to dirt (idiot who I bought it off) So I am putting it back to stock I have undone the stupidity but cannot figure out the last wire which is a green wire with red trace which goes to the CDI and to a diode and it has a three way joiner but the wire had been snipped and taped. I have searched through all the wiring diagrams but can’t find it as they are all US/Canada and UK diagrams and for the S and SE which all have a battery circuit and tachometer where my one doesn’t. I suspect it is a kick stand switch but I would like the Gurus here to confirm this and if it is which is the best way bypass it. The blue wires on the end of the Diode go to the neutral switch which brings me to my last problem the bike cuts out when moved out of neutral with clutch in. Again leading me to believe that the mystery wire is for a kick stand switch. Any knowledge that can be shared on this matter would be truly appreciated! Thank you.
