I used a puller on mine as well. You won't break anything.

There was almost no wind on my body at $65 mph just on the top of my head. No buffeting and the lights are extremely bright. This and the seat concepts have made cruising on the road a lot more enjoyable.

I'm not affiliated with them at all, just thought I would let in on how it worked for anyone who was curious.
That looks really nice. Could you post pictures or describe how you mounted it? I'm going to put mine on this weekend.

Am I missing something painfully obvious here?

New here and already really impressed with the quality of this thread. I have a 96 DR350SE and this week I replaced the clutch cable, or tried to. My local shop had the Parts Unlimited cable K28-2122, which has the funny little bent metal tube end that feeds the cable to the clutch arm atop the motor case. I'll gladly don the dunce cap if someone can help me to feel very stupid and let me in on the secret to making this cable work with the clutch cable bracket. For the life of me I can't figure out how these two fit together. The old cable simply had a threaded end and two lock nuts to hold the cable in the bracket. Can anyone help shed some light on this cable?

Looks like you have the wrong cable. You need one just like came off of yours. Don't think that ones going to work.

I'm getting throttle 'effects' at full lock, which makes me think a PO might have done something goofy. either it's the wrong cable or it's routed wrong. Anyone happen to have some photos of the relevant areas of the bike that might help? Clymers and the manual are not helpful in this regard.

Thank you!
I used a puller to remove the kickstart lever on mine the first time I pulled the clutch cover.

My throttle cable routes down the left side of the frame and under the gas tank tunnel. If you are really stuck I can remove the tank tomorrow and get you a pic.

here is how mine is mounted. Looks like the same cable you have.

still searching for a muffler boys...if anyones got one, lemme know please. It can be pretty much junk, just looking to score the end that slides on the header pipe.

Actually, the manuals should be pretty helpful in this regard.

For the dirt model, routing is covered in sections 7-9 to 7-12.

For the street model, routing is covered in sections 8-41 to 8-45.

Later yearly sections may also have updates as well.

If you have specific questions after that, please let us know. I hope this helps!

Regards,

clutch cable

Push it through the bracket and slide the rubber cap back on. Then connect to clutch arm. Tension of cable keeps it seated in bracket. Good luck to ya! It really is pretty simple.

Starting problems

Hello everyone,

My 97 dr350SE is having some starting issues...

heres the scoop..

Had an issue so I cleaned the carb, new oil, and cleaned the air filter.

Put everything back together which I have done multiple times.

Now it will not start and run. It starts only if I connect it to my car battery, pull the choke and adust the air screw to almost max. It idles for 1 minute then shuts off.

I checked the spark plug and it was pretty sooty which would indicate its rich.

Any ideas?
