TT350's were pretty rare here. I have only seen a couple in the wild including back when they were new. Back in the 1990's I looked for one for several years to drop my XT350 motor into and finally gave up.

Hello TTers.

I'm considering buying a 1991 TT350

Wanting to use it for a street legal DS.

Any words of wisdom or wave offs?



TIA

Check the carb manifold. The rubber can come away from the alloy. Easy to replace.

All wheel bearings apart from front right uses a pair of bearings.

Change to 15/50 gearing.

Don't fall off.

It wasn't my first time carrying beer on a bike, but it was my first time carrying a whole carton


Another recent pic


And with my mates DR-z


It's only a couple of months until I can go for my open class license (>250cc), so I'm going to be selling my street bike real soon, then looking for probably an XT600 or an older 660 Tenere. Then once I've got my license, I'll be selling the TT

It's been fun, but I bought the bike to learn on and learn I have. I still love it though :')

Get a rectifier put it in line and change the taillight to an LED, get LED blinkers and your home free, don't forget the horn. I used to run mine using the cheap way, but now I have a Universal Baja Designs system on it, Baja Designs also rewired my stator for higher output. Works great. I don't think Clarke has a bigger tank, I believe their's is stock size 2.6gallon. But the stock tank with a properly running bike should get you anywhere from 80 to 120 miles. I've gone 140 miles before on a tank (would not recommend it, it was scary out in the middle of nowhere and no gas station in site).

Hey TTKlaus,
I was wondering if you could give me a little more information on the Baja Design kit you used on your TT350. I called them and they were not sure they could help me. I really like their dual sport kits and was wondering if you could steer me in the right direction? I don't want to change the looks of my '87 TT350 too much. It is awesome just as it sits!

Many thanks,

Some shots of my shock res conversion...

From a useless 1986 Yamaha version that needs a nitrogen needle and is non-adjustable...


To an orsum 1983 Honda version that is easily filled and adjustable (not that you can tell the difference on the bike, but it's got a dial )...
and with the longer line, it means I can remove the shock without also removing the airbox, airbox boots and carbs...


WR250 "gay" muffler - stealth mode engaged...


Damper mount...
The speedo splashes were from another job and my bike was a bit too close.
He's given me some stuff to polish it up.


Crank it above 7 and watch the stainless post flex


The damper isn't centered where I'd like but it's going to work fine.
The post leans slightly to the right which offends my OCD and sense of tidyness (stop laughing) but will be ok.

Looks like 3-5 will be normal settings.
Once I've been running it for a while, I'll dump the 10w and re-fill with 5w which should get the adjuster in the middle of the settings.
