My old one would occasionally leak a little and the raptor one is so much better looking imo and easier to turn. Try this link

hernan, I had a little trouble understanding your post but I think you are looking for an after market/performance pipe. Correct?

I'm not sure which pipes are available at this time for the DR350, maybe FMF Q4?
But just so you know, All (1990-1999) USA DR250,DR350 exhaust systems are interchangeable. Same system.

Good luck

exactly bob i am looking for an after market/performance pipe. I like to be new, but is it in very good conditions I can conform whit an used one. the issue is the price, on ebay, the price for an fmf powercore 4 is about 260, and here in my country y have to pay 50% of taxes, then.. 390 only the price without shipping (50 more sure)
jaja, now you can understand mi desesperation!
thanks again

For something like that I'd definitely stick with oem regardless of what was available on the aftermarket.

Can anyone tell me what the seat height on a 1997 DR 350 would be? My wife is 5'4 and I found one that is a bit of a drive away to look at so don't want to waste a trip if it's too tall. Also, how much can you lower them?

Thanks!

I am 5'10 and i am just about tip toes on my 96 350SE, 35" according to the manual. I dont know about lowering or how low you can go but I would imagine that it would be far too tall for a 5'4 person.

Easily lowered with Kourba links and shifting the fork tubes up in the triple clamps as much as needed.

My wife is 5'4" and the 99 DR350se is one, if not her favorite bike. However she has some experience, putting 20K miles on her 1150 GS in the last year, while owning 3 other bikes.

I never stop smiling when on the DR. just added #2 to the stable.

I'm 5' 5" and ride a 96. I installed the #1 kouba links to lower the bike 1" (KoubaLink.com). Of course the forks had to be dropped an equal amount and the sag adjusted. This worked pretty good. After riding it for a few months and receiveing a few more paychecks, I installed a Corbin seat. That made it perfect. You can do it!

The max you can gain by installing Kouba Links (the lowest is link#3) is 2 inches. You can gain a bit more by shaving the seat and a little by dropping the tubes in the triple tree.

DR350 #1 Links - 1.50" lowering. PN DR350-1: $75
DR350 #2 Links - 1.75" lowering. PN DR350-2: $75
DR350 #3 Links - 2.00" lowering. PN DR350-3: $75

Here's a couple of items I have for sale in the FM that should fit all models of the DR350...

Useable Tool Kit

I've gotten back into bike riding after a 35 year break and purchased a 97 DR350SE. I'm quite impressed with the bike and it's a lot of fun blasting down dirt roads and trails, but.... what do you other riders carry for a tool kit when you ride. I'm a mechanic so I already know the importance of having the right tools, but for trail riding I don't want a bunch of extra weight. What should be in a USEABLE tool kit?
