Since this is a budget build, I'll try to track the cost of everything since some people seem to be interested in that kind of thing. Items begin with N or U for new or used.
U 98 DR350 - $1100
U 91 DR250S - $950
U 440 big bore kit - $175
Acerbis tank $207
aluminum plate for swingarm: $98
peg extension $30 (I think)
Cycra hand guards w/ ATV mounts: like $110 I think
protaper bars $70ish
[EDIT] shortly after posting this list I stopped keeping track. I certainly went way over budget. Overall I would guess this bike is slightly cheaper to maintain than a modern CRF/WR/RFS, but not a whole lot cheaper.
