  1. Great advice, one other thing I do in addition is to cover the exhaust and if possible the intake (ie, air cleaner) to prevent rodents from nesting in either. I've seen & heard horror stories from unsuspecting riders experience on Spring start up!
  2. Did anyone follow up on your question?
  3. Thanks for the validation. I managed to find the factory manual with supplement for my year/model. Thanks to all that responded. Happy trails!
  4. I get that would be best, but even if the factory ones require a supplement for the 'SE'. Searching eBay now.
  5. Thanks for your input, I believe the '250s' got the e-start earlier than the '350s'. Vin# confirms mine to be a '93.
  6. Anybody have any experience with Cyclepedia service manuals? I've got a 1993 Suzuki DR250SE and apparently Clymers manual #M476 doesn't cover it specifically. I'm looking for detailed info on my bikes electric start system.
    As a older rider getting back into the sport, I wanted something compatible with my skills, reliable & less intimidating. The Suzuki DR250SE fills that criteria. Electric start was 'icing on the cake'! Found this deal on C/L & with some time & work it should be a trusty (less rusty!) steed.

  8. I say buy it! I hemmed & hawed and missed out on a 1985 XR600L. Regretting it now, that bike looks complete, and the dual carbs aren't that hard to adjust. Parts are available. With a Baja or Tusk kit it'll make a nice little computer to get you to the trails. Just my 2¢!
  9. I'm thinking as a 60yr old getting back to some off road riding that'll be a huge plus. But I do love ol' Honda's!... I think reliability & parts availability are pretty much the same, right?
  10. Yes, with electric start to its credit...ie "the button"...lol
  11. Guys I missed out on the Honda XR600L!...SOLD. I've got the choice now between a 1993 Suzuki DR250SE and an '88 Honda XR250R. Weigh in now with any thoughts/advice. Thx
  12. Congrats on the build!...x2 on Highmarkers advice. Btw, the "flying tiger" graphics look good to me!
