Please forgive my ignorance, but what does the RMX swingarm give you?
A stronger one piece, slightly longer and wider swingarm with RM linkage. I noticed a better ride right off the bat and after some clicker fiddling it is great. I do have Racetechs stiffer spring also. The RMX swingarm will let you use RMX and DR wheels and RM wheels with the right spacers. Also you can run wider knobbies with more room for mud acumulation.

Hi all, good pics and stories, brings back memories.
found a rough stock '91, DR350S last winter. tore it down and refurbished it, (more for street use). rode it all last spring and summer. sold it and got a DRZ400sm. I would like another one for trail riding this time.

Louis, a Germany-wide chain of motorbike accessory stores, sells two different types: A high quality one made by RR and low quality one by motodetail.

I can't find anything on the web about them. Do you have a website for them?

Thats pretty sweet. Is that the stock seat cover or from a 650?

hi fellows,

no mod nor pict, just info to share.

Damper of my DR350 was leaking and as I didnt wanna buy another, I searched how to fix it.
Problem was with an inner seal.
And lucky me, suzuky dont sell the piece but the whole damper !
So I talked with a friend of mine who told me that honda is far better in this area; easy to buy a single piece from them.
And he got an idea : what about the XR ?

The XR have a showa damper too..... ;)
So I bought a set of seals for XR600 from honda !

And it perfectly fits.
