I found it as 2.15 according to bikebandit diagrams. Hope it's correct, as that's the one I ordered this week.

Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1993/early model offroad model? I can only find S and SE diagrams. Or if the difference is simple (like just ignoring the battery) just let me know and I'll go off the DR350S diagram.

I didn't see a diagram in the manual either. The wiring is completely different. Simple AC lighting circuit. No switches, interlocks, electrical instruments... nothing. The only "important" wire is the one going to the kill button. That can't be grounded for the bike to run.

Yeah I'm sure it will squeeze in there probably is the right one thanks

Thanks. Guess I'll need both... I'm working on a dirt model, that was converted to street, then gutted back to dirt.

I've got an extra set of wheels for my DR, and I'm trying to decide what to go with for the rear wheel.

The one that is on there now is cush drive, with about 4500 miles on it. I'm planning on doing the TAT on the bike this summer.

I've also got a dirt model non cush wheel, where honestly the spokes are in a lot better condition. The cush drive one the spokes are rusty and some may not even be able to be adjusted. Should I swap over to the non cush wheel? It'd be one less thing to fail without the cush rubbers and also it would give me the peace of mind of being able to adjust spokes on the road.

Is the cush drive desirable or does it not really matter?

I have both. I now run the non-cush wheel all the time on the 350. Rode the TAT on it with no problem. I think its a bit more durable and on the 350 I don't think it really matters. OTOH, on the 650 I think it matters a lot (extra large "thumps"). So, I converted my cush drive 350 wheel to a 650 wheel - 18" vs 17" by installing a 650 brake rotor.

Does anyone have a set of good condition passenger pegs they are looking to move?

Love it. If I tried that on my SET it might just fall apart.

Thought I would share a couple of pics of the old DR from this weekends ride.







Beautiful weekend here in the PNW.

Looks like you have a set on your bike already.

Mine has seen a great deal of use/abuse and are in need of replacement. I think they are bent to about a 45 degree angle. I'm going on a few rides with my girlfriend this summer and I would like her to have a good set of footpegs.

Speaking of passenger footpegs, can someone show me some closeups of the mounts on a DR350S? I have an off road model that I will be adding pegs to somehow. Would be great if you could show me the mounts with the pegs unattached also.

Coming soon: pictures of and questions about wiring... this will be fun. Found out the bike came with a homemade battery!
