Cam to rocker is .003-.005. Don't know about valve to piston.
I am trying to break down my digital manual in small enough parts so I can get it poasted. Currently it is 77Mb.

Is that the same one you have? It clocks in around 80Mb.

1990-1993
Intake (0.002-0.004 inches)
Exhaust (0.003-0.005 inches)

Take the reading at TDC on the compression stroke with the engine cold

Yes it appears so. Thanks! I could not remember where I got mine.

I think I have to agree with you about the T63 front diving in corners! Also maybe washing out entirely & suddenly, plopping me on my face/arm and breaking my precious bones

Riding skills would probably help, I might try that next

Ouch! That looks uncomfortable... Yeah I tried the T-63 front and rear on my DR650. Love it on the rear, still running it. I took the front off after a thousand miles cause it scared me to much. I don't know what it is about that tire but I have run much more aggressive dirt tires that grip pavement better, and it sucked off road.

When did you break your shoulder? Is that recent?

Holy crap! I'd blame it all on the tires haha. I'm glad others agree with me, a much more aggressive front is needed . I love the rear though, the 'paddle' type treads in the middle are great for sand and soft dirt, mostly what I run in. Havn't had any problems on the road with them either

Just a couple weeks ago, silly thing, no harm to me or the bike other than the collarbone - they break really easily. I got a titanium plate on it last week and it's pretty much good as new now Happy with the T63 tires on dirt/sand/mud and they even do fine on city streets and freeway, but I'd like something different for the front.

While I fully heal I'll be doing an overhaul on the DR350. Lots of fantastic info and ideas on various threads here.

Thanks to whoever posted the link to d2moto.com, great prices.

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.

Yondering was kind enought to replace my forks with Cartridge style DR forks before I bought it. I thought I heard somewhere this wheel would fit the RM forks. Was your the older SE model front end?

My favorite front tire is the perreli PRO F.I.M, which sadly, I think they no longer make. They have a new version of this tire tho that looks pretty good.
It is the PRO all terrain,

The Pirelli Scorpion Pro and Pirelli Scorpion XCMH are very good front tires. Both are DOT approved.
