    Any store that has 1991 Dr350s rear shock seals?

    Cool! Thanks a bunch. It looks like there are stores in Europe that sells RaceTech-seals too. A bit more cost effective that way.
  2. The bump stop on my 1991 dr350s is almost completely gone. And if I am to pull the whole shock apart just to replace the bump stop I definitively want new seals to go with it. Does someone know if any stores sells seals that fit the dr350s? Maybe some other models seals fit this one as well?

    I am pretty sure the housing is the same so the OD of the diaphragm should be the same as the XT. You could try to measure the ID of the slide before purchasing. Before I replaced all the o-rings and gaskets and seated the choke plunger (doesn't want to seat all the way in) with cable ties it ran even richer. Now it runs much better, but at really low throttle it chugs.

    Yes it's running rich, I guess that might be the problem. I don't think the carb is in the best shape. If it idles for about 10 minutes it fouls the plug and dies. Might be time to take it out and fiddle around a bit more with it. I did not check the diaphragm. I was too afraid to rip it if opened the top. Are you sure the diaphragm itself is different from the xt350? Or is only the slide? Otherwise this place seems to be selling only the diaphragm, which lets you keep the slide. : http://jbmindustries.com/YDLS.html

    Have you touched your carb at all? I'm having some issues when going slow at 0-10% throttle. It doesn't run right at all. But anything above that it goes great. I have cleaned passages and jets, bought a rebuild kit and replaced all o-rings and gaskets. Maybe it's time to clean it all over again.

    I like that number plate. ”Motorcycle”. As if someone would mistake it for a car

    Well they look pretty good on the pictures. Are they not lining up to the mounts correctly? Im surprised of the quality of the oem plastics. 30 years old and still very pliable. Done some nice crashes and bent the plastics quite a bit without cracking it.

    With the valves correctly set it starts cold in a few kicks no problem. Hot is a bit worse but usually only needs a few kicks more. What I found out is that you really need to kick through the whole kick stroke until it bottoms out at the footpeg. I found a 42.5 pilot jet in the carb, so one of the previous owners changed it from a 37.5. No mods to airflow and oem exhaust. Maybe that helps in the starting.

    Snow is just another reason to get out riding Mine had some new generic bars when I bought it, probably renthal, it works well. I bought another toy two weeks ago. A 1991 dr350s. The TT feels so much more powerful even if the engines have almost the same specs. But I think it's because the TT has much better throttle response. Gonna try to tweak the DR to see if I can get it to run as good as the TT. With that said, I really like the DR too.

    Yeah I got one of those with ridges too. Weird.

    Phew that's good. And yes, you are probably right. How many hours between changes do people do on modern dirt bikes? Are you using conv, semi or fully synth? Im using 15w40 semi.

    Ouch. There's not much protection over that plug. It probably took a hit. Did you get it out again? Mine had seized pretty good, had to use a good amount of elbow grease to get it out. Realized I was missing the o-ring (14). It hasn't been leaking so I guess I'll replace it next oil change. Here's what my oil looked liked when stirred. There's some glittering in there but definitely not much. And it did not feel gritty when rubbing it between the fingers. I had some aluminum shavings in the strainer. But first time cleaning it since replacing the cam chain and I no longer get any crud building up in the oil filter so.. Fingers crossed!

    Haha why!!! Rubber had better quality in 94 . Im gonna change the oil this weekend, ill report it looks then. By the way, the TT blows those other bikes out of the forest, at least style wise.

    Cool stuff. But I wouldn't want to ride this thing faster than 60mph. It might have something to do with that my rear tyre is from 1994.. And the front isn't much better. Any chunks or crud building up in the oil filter?

    Did you check for play in the conrod small and big end? When having it all apart i would measure everything possible just for the heck of it. Even if it looks good. With only 1300 miles your engine is probably still breaking in, might be the cause of the small particles.
