Search has not turned up much specific info, though I know it is buried in this giant thread somewhere.

Is there a consensus as to best replacement mirrors? Not impressed with the factory mirrors. Ideally, I would like some that fold without tools for trails and crowded garage, but that also stay where you want them when deployed.

Thank you in advance.

Jon

If you are stopping every 1/2 just because you are seeing 130 on your oil temp. guage, I would seriously think about throwing away the temp. guage!

You are safe to 150C -- if you are seeing that for extended periods, then get that oil cooler on there!

This bundle comes from the generator. I have not been able to find the black wire with the male bullet connector on any wiring diagram. I suspect it's a ground, can anyone confirm?

anyone know about the Suzuki Height Control adjustment?

Just picked up a 92 DR350 for $1500. One dollar for every mile on the clock. completely bone stock and damn near pristine.


Any ideas on how the ride height adjustment (SHC (Suzuki Height Control) is adjusted?

SHC was not avail on US models.
Is there a problem with the height?

Kouba Links.
I have them on both my DR's. They do lower the bike but I bought them because they work great to stop the rear wheel from kicking up while going over whoops and larger bumps off road.
I have a 36" inseam but my rear shock has been rebuilt. It has a "Progressive Suspension" brand spring which is much stiffer than the stock ball point pen spring
The stock spring is ok if you weigh less than 185 pounds or so, after that it's quite weak.

The Kouba Links come in 3 lengths.
Great product and necessary (IMO) if you cant flat foot the bike. Takes about a 20 minute installation time.

I'm pretty sure that is a ground that exists on the street model generator, but not on the dirt model -- so your dirt model harness won't have it.

I can verify that in the morning... bedtime now.

Rear shock adjustment Question

Just starting to muck with my new to me '96 SE. Took the old tank off in prep to install Aceris. Took the carb out and will send to Jesse to do the mods (newb here). Replace stock bash plate with Ricochet. Replaced stock handle bars with Tusk. Installed Tusk risers. Replaced battery and footpegs. Still have the hand grips/heaters, windscreen (long distance comfort), bark busters, Uni air filter, cut out air box, replace bearings and a few other odds n sods before I taker er out for the first time (8K on the odo).

When I was muckin around I noticed the top knurled shock "ring" was off at the top. Where should it be, tightend down on top of the other knurled ring....?

Also my tach does not work, is there fuse for that and/or where should I start to see what's wrong....?

Thanks!

Your PM with the diagram is just what I needed. Thanks a lot!

A note on that: I had my 91S apart, and missed connecting that black wire. Had no neutral light, never suspected what was amiss. During testing I happened to ground from the neg terminal on the battery to the frame, and there was my neutral light on. Okay... made a jumper, and rode it like that.

Fast-forward to when I'm removing the 91 harness to put on the 98 for the magic button job, and I see that black wire unconnected. Not exactly sure the path it follows, but the bike ran with that wire disconnected, just had no neutral light.

And it wasn't the blue wire from the neutral switch, either.

Sorry, I sure don't. A bunch of other guys who frequent this thread are much more knowledgeable than I with the DR and carburetion - and you are already getting some replies from them. :>

The "ken sean enduro mirror" is what you want to google for. Excellent mirror, IMHO.

There are at least two available, though I don't have dimensions on either:
