according to Ron Ayers, it is the same part#, which does not surprise me at all. Thanks for the help.

I just checked RonAyers.com and both the 1990 dirt crank and the1993S model (they don't list the 1992S for some reason) both take part # 12200-14D00

Should be a match but I suggest you research it yourself as well

Tach does not work, where to start...?

Hi there I have a new to me ' 96 DR350SE and the tach does not work. Is it fused or what should I check to diagnose the problem...?

thanks!

On my bike I clipped it and spliced in a cigarette style outlet to power my GPS. It is controlled through the ignition so it's not constantly hot.
I have a '96 DR350SE so would I also have that auxillary power plug? Would be a good option for a 12 2 prong plug or a place to hook my grip heaters up to.

Does it move at all? bounce around?

Is your battery fully charged?

Theres only one fuse, it's located just to the left of the battery.

1) Should I be worried about this? I mean the oily bolt there above the decomp shaft thingy going into the right side of the engine...

Not critical, minor weepage.

2) Doing my valves for the first time. This is what I want to see to get TDC, right? How critical is it that the line be EXACTLY in the center of the inspection hole?

Close enough for government work.

3) Another valve adjust question... Is there anything I can use besides the special Suzuki tool or the one sold by Jesse/Procycle? By that I mean, isn't there anything in my toolbox that I could use to make the adjustment? I actually have the tool on-order (also Clymer & raptor petcock) but I am doing a ride this Saturday and I want to get the valves adjusted before I go... they need it.
Here in canada we call them robertson screws, you might know them as deck screws, require a square screwdriver bit? One of those screws, with some tape wrapped around the twisty bit for better grip, will do the job. Any hardware store will have them. #2, or red handle, they're size coded that way. might be marked as such.
Quote:

4) Valves again... I want to set them to the largest value in the tolerance range, right? (.004/.005)
Either setting, just make sure they're equal to each other.
Quote:

5) And one last valves question... I am assuming that the rear of the engine has the "intake valves" and the front of the engine has the "exhaust valves." Correct?

Thanks for your patience and answers in advance!
Carb side is intake, exhaust pipe side is... exhaust.

Anyone have an idea how this would work on a DR350?
http://www.gearscanada.com/products/...-tail-bag.html

I want a bag to put stuff in for camping trips and long trips but can handle some off road stuff, but the Giant loop bags are so expensive. Do you think I could mount this with a tent bag and dry sack as well? Would a luggage rack (manrack one) possibly stick out far enough behind it to attach an additional drysack/tent?

thanks

That looks like a good setup . would you strap it down onto the rear fender bar ?

Hey guys, I'm going to look at a 1998 DR350 today. Its the offroad version (x?) but its been titled, plated and has a baja kit. Technically its supposed to be for my wife to commute on...but I have a sneaking suspicion its going to end up being the bike I hit the trails with. We recently got a lil' 110cc dirtbike for my son, so I need something to ride with him anyway.

Here's the only picture I have thus far....very excited to go see it tonight. I haven't been on the dirt in a few years now...
