TurboCity rear rack

Question: A stock rear rack is currently on the DR350se ('96). The subframe has been removed (underneath the rear fender). The signals attach to the current rear rack. I don't see any places where the signals can be attached to the TurboCity rear rack (DR 350 Borrego Rack), nor do I have the part on my DR that is on the model DR on TC's webpage. Rather, that latter part is incorporated into the stock rear rack on my bike.

My question is, anyone run into this installing a TC rack on their 350se? And how did you attach turn signals to a TurboCity rack?

Current rear rack (sans signals) now:

The turbbo city rack has tabs on it for the turn signals, just not in the pics they use. We have that rack on Meredith's bike.

Do you by any slim chance have a photo? In TC's pdf on installation the rear part is referred to as 'frame loop'. That's what I don't have; instead my frame loop is incorporated into the entire rear rack assembly. My concern is stability of the TC rack. It has only one attachment point and that is near the front.

Comments? I'd sure appreciate some feedback on this rack before I purchase it.

BTW, I'd like to chat with you about the trails coalition. I'll pm you later.

pumper carb

Looks like I just missed the pumper carb that was for sale a couple pages back. Anyone else got one?

Also, does anyone here know if Kientech is still selling the pumper kits? Their website has been updated and doesn't show them anymore. I'll be calling them tomorrow anyway, just curious if you guys know.

I just bought one 3 weeks ago.

Header Pipe.

Does anyone know if a header pipe for a dr350 will fit a DR350se?

Thanks, that's good to know. I was hoping they just forgot to list it on their website.

I guess it's worth asking, now that you've bought one, do you feel it was worth the $400? Would you do it again?
I've got the cash, but I'm debating between selling the DR350 and picking up a XR600, or putting a pumper on the DR and keeping it. Nothing wrong with the DR, I just like more power!

I don't know. I've never ridden the bike except the day I bought it 5 weeks ago.

I took it apart as soon as I got it home.




I got the last piece of the puzzle this weekend.





I hope to have it all together by the weekend.

Installed #l links, new Pro-Taper handlebar (new fender and grips not here yet and handguards won't fit -need different mounting system).

I took the new boy out for its maiden voyage yesterday, riding back county roads until sunset.
Oh. My.

I had a blast. Handles like a charm even with full knobbies and torquey fun. Despite the skipping, sputtering and occasional coughing. Carb needs attention. But I know this thing and I are going to bond and be a pair quickly.

Let's go.

You wont find everything they stock on their site.
Best to do a site search.... then you'll find it.

Unless it's totally destroyed, you should be able to do, or a muffler shop should. You just heat the dented area up so that the metal gets soft, then fill it with compressed air: done. Overly simplified, I know, but you get the idea.
