Heads up on some amazing sale prices for a few DR350 parts. They have clutch cables for $9 and bigger foot pegs for $15, small LED turn signals for $17/pair. Use this code "WS40" and knock 40% off those prices. Their shipping is a fixed rate of $6 per order.

All good deals I think.

If the clutch cable is a spare you can remove the fuel tank and route the spare along side the current cable from top to bottom.
Seal the ends with a couple large rubber vacuum cap nipples zip tied around the ends.

If your current clutch cable breaks you'll be back in business in 10-15 minutes with the new cable.

That's the plan for my cross country trip this summer Does anyone know if you can swap the push and pull cables for the throttle? No need to carry another if I already have a backup.

I'm almost positive that the throttle cables are not interchangeable but the good news is that it will likely work fine with the pull cable only.

The pumper kits that Jesse sells are supposed to use two cables but they only come with the pull cable.
No problems at all.
I ran an older pumper years ago on my brothers 350 which had a bad push cable, removed it and it worked great with the pull cable only.

Footpegs, spare clutch cable and a manual, all for $37.17 delivered. I didn't even need another clutch cable but for that discounted price will keep it for possible future use.

Thanks for the tip

I never really paid attention to mpg, but I am pretty sure I was getting around 45mpg on full knobbies with a mixture of off road and freeway riding (I'd ride a ways on the freeway to the trails, ride moderately hard on the trails, then ride back on the freeway).

Your size is definitely going to hurt mpg (I'm 160lbs and 5'10"). Off road will usually give lower mpg, particularly high speeds - like freeway riding will give lower mpg and you'll get the best on street tires going fairly slowly in a paved surface - say 35-50mph back roads.

Also, go buy the 4.25 gal acerbis tank
Thanks pilot. I figured I would try raising the clip 1 notch at a time until I found a happy medium then try a 137.5 main. The Acerbis tank is on my list but will have to wait until after tax day.

I see your running the T63 on the rear, you have the same on the front? I don't like how the front performs on the trail, it dives too easily. Looking for a replacement when the time comes.

Get it while you can.

I went to Acerbis, that is the only reason I'm selling it.

I used a set of 96 Suzuki RMX forks for my conversion. Only needed to turn down the nut on top by .125, add stops to the RMX lower clamp and have a friend weld tabs on the upper clamp for the speedo/tach assembly. You have to use a RMX wheel also. Definitely worth the fabrication. The lower bearing on the stem is the same as the DR's. For the upper I found a bearing that required no machining to use the RMX steering stem.

(and dont need any of the features of a vapor and would like to keep the stock mileage on the odo).

Anyone know if the Odometer drive on a WR wheel would fit the DR Speedometer cable? Looks like I could get a wheel on ebay for about $100 with everything on it. Would like to find something local on craigslist but pickins are slim for WR parts here.

Any other options/wheels to look for? YZ wheels are more available, could I use one of those with a WR odometer drive or is it completely different?

Thanks!

Does anyone have a digital version of the shop manual? That, or know the valve clearances for a '92 S model off the top of their head?
