No, as I mentioned when I remove the bolt there is no dipstick, just a very clean (like stainless steel) threaded bolt. But this is where I put the oil in, correct?

I'm happy that the bike has a...

DR350 Electrical Questions - want to add turn signals

Recently purchased a 94 DR350 Dirt version. The bike is CA plated and street legal though it does not have turn signals, so I guess technically not street legal.

I hadn't considered anything over a 250 because I want something light, better for off-road, and good fuel economy. But I will look at the dr350, though it is definitely heavier than the klr250.

Thanks for the feedback. I like that the Honda can be modded easier.
With a little more power, if it is a 6-speed, it should be able to handle the highway as well as the KLR?
