That link appears to be only the carb. Also needed are the airbox side rubber boot, the throttle cables, the throttle tube and if you want to be stock TM33 installation, the intake snorkel. IMO, it takes more skills to get a tm33 conversion working correctly than to rebuild the BST33. There is an improvement in throttle response with the tm33 bit no real increase in power or top speed. Not worth the investment imo unless you have to buy a carb anyhow.

This may turn ino my fall project, the temp in my home garage reached 114 today. I should not pass the opportunity to learn something new. I will do this and achieve or die in a fiery inferno
didnt you say you live in plano? if you can get it here to garland, i'll fix it for a fraction of what the shops charge. i have 1 customer bike & mine so there is space. i'm used to the texas summer heat, no biggie.

You are absolutely correct about the associated costs, there is definitely more expensive involved than just the carburetor.

I concur that the pumper is not worth the investment. I swapped from a pumper to a CV carb and I greatly prefer it. Not a popular choice, I know. But, it works well for me :>

I don't see how to insert a pic, aside from linking to a URL.
Welcome, once ya get the picture thing figured out, be sure to post some!

There is a how to post pictures thread that is very informative. If you read it we will all get to see that beautiful DR350. I will be here a lot dreaming even though today mine gets sold. I will be pointing the owner to this site though.

nah man I didn't lose my mind. I work so dang much, I don't have the time to maintain it the way it should be. I don't have the money to put into it anymore to get it back to looking like it did when I bought it before I started learning how to ride in the hard single track.

I am getting a DRZ400SM or S, depends on which one hits the dealer first. I ride the 250 in the dirt all the time now, so the DRZ400 is perfect for commuting and all those places near my work where I am not really supposed to ride, but do anyway because I am a hooligan at heart.

First off: welcomed !
To insert a pic you need a host site like Photobucket, upload there then use the direct link from there to insert here.

Does anyone have a link to checking the shift drum bolt? I'm not having any issues right now but would like to read up on the procedure in case I need/want to in the future.

Thanks!

Well the guy I was going to buy the dr 350 turned out to be a dirt bag. He tried to raise the price after we had agreed on one. Then he called me telling me that there was someone coming to look at the bike and he was paying 2k not the $1,400 so I told him to sell it because I wasn't going to get anywhere near that. He called me 1 hour later to tell me that he never showed up but if I want the bike for $1,800. Hate dealing with idiots. So the search continues...

was that the 20k bike? he saved some you some trouble. These are good for 100k i bet but lots maint due in the 20-30K range, imo.

fly from mco to the panhandle for cheap, pack a tree hammock and ride that $1875 , 3K miles , 98 back home and enjoy it forever. Offer him 1700 in 100 dollar bills and if he doesn't bite then give him 1875 and be done with it.

or get this dr250 instead for 1300 and we'll still let you be on this forum :-)

[QUOTE=brianjonesphoto;21979780]Can't tell for sure but you might have a Scott's swing arm. From the little I can see it doesn't look stock. Or it could just be a sticker.

I agree - it looks like a Scotts swing arm. The Scott's have a rectangular section & are welded together. The stock swing arms are screwed & glued.

The Scott's sold for about $500 new. Supposedly, some versions of the Scotts were 1" longer than stock, but the 2 I've seen are a fraction of an inch shorter than stock. They are supposed to be much stronger than stock.
