Hey man, I am in the same boat. I have an old DR350 waiting for a rebuild as well. They are great bikes! I found this site and have been reading everything I can while I heal from surgery. There is a killer writeup with lots of photos from DisTech. I read that thing a couple times this year. Good luck and post a lot of pics on this thread as you can when you get going, it seems to generate alot of support and tips. Maybe I can learn some more from your adventure.
Or at least kill more time at work.
