This is what you need:

old Froks are 15mm axles. Newer ones are 17mm
Thanks. That's an interesting page.

I ordered the other link. If the speedo drive has some life it will be a good deal.

Presently shopping for frocks.

How about changing the clutch rod oil seal.? Does it pop out the top or need to pull the clutch cover to push it out from the inside ? 1998 sew . It figured since I lubed its chain it would return the favor and lube my boot

IIRC, it pops out the top. Can be removed using typical "dental pick" tools. Just be careful not to gouge anything and you'll be set. Pretty easy, actually.

If you're near a Batteries Plus store, you could see if they have this one. I've never tried it, though; I always just use Yuasa.

"Dig" it out from the top. Just make sure you get everything out and the hole is nice and clean before you try putting the new one in or it won't go. A little oil in the hole and on the new seal will help it slide in.

Are you asking if anybody has one for sale, or who prefers quiet over aftermarket loud? My 250 came with a scrapped-together POS homebrew pipe that sounded like crap, so I found a good used pipe on FleaBay. Nice and quiet.

I did the same with the gutted pipe on my new '98 XR400... stock quiet pipe from eBay. I hate loud pipes.

Just put on new front sprocket, rear sprocket, chain, changed the oil and adjusted the valves.

While I had the tank off, I took a pic of my security switch I installed. I don't have a fancy key ignition like the SE owners, so I put on a kill switch before the spark plug and stuffed it to where I can barely fit my fat finger under the tank and engage it.

I've thought about doing something like that, but if I'm really nervous about where I'm leaving the bike I shift it into a high gear (4th, 5th or 6th) and switch the headlight all the way off. On the Baja Designs handlebar switch I have the bike won't run with the switch in that position. I figure most thieves won't know that, and even if they figure it out they're going to make a lot of noise stalling out repeatedly before they ever find a gear they can take off in.

Quick question about the auto decomp on a '94 se. Is there supposed to be a lever sticking out of the valve cover? I thought the auto decomp models didn't have anything there. Mine does but doesn't have a cabel or bracket. Am I missing something here? Did someone put an older head or motor into this bike?

if you look at this link MrPuldown posted

http://oem-cycle.com/KawasakiDR350.shtml

you can check your motor serial # to see if it matched your model year bike.

As likely as not only the top end would be changed if someone messed with the engine for some reason. If the bike does indeed autodecompress then those parts are inside. If it doesn't then it needs a cable and lever fitting.

Nice ammo boxes. I have a pair of boxes that I want to install on my DR, but haven't figured out how I want to mount them yet. I will likely end up having a buddy help me fab up something custom. So many projects, so little time (and money).
