Anyone got a suggestion on how to fix this one, or got a used one for sale?

Have you checked the salvage yards in your area? Im sure it isnt a part many people seek to find.

Nick, you might keep an eye on eBay, too. I would think a metering assembly for a DR250 would be the same. If I happen across one, I'll let you know (via PM).

Probably a DR650 too. Check the part #'s on the diffrent models on a site like ronayers.com

That's not necessarily always true (unlike the DR250S or DR250SE). But, in this case, it is. Here's what I found @ Ayers:

1990-92 DR250S
1993-94 DR250SE
1990-96 DR350
1990-97 DR350SE
1992-93 DR650S
1994-95 DR650SE

They all use the same metering assembly (or speedo box). When the DR350(SE) went to the 6 bolt rotor, the part number changes.

Thanks for the help guys, I've been hunting around my area and found a place not too far from me that has the part. I'll report back when I get it if the squeaking stopped or not.

Yep, they are the Wally World ATV covers. My buddy still uses his, I felt like I slid forward on mine too much and have it off right now, but I'm going to put it back on and give it another try. Tryiny to figure out if it's a little more slippery than the factory cover. It seemed to me that I would slid forward every time I hit the brakes, but I have noticed a bit of the same on the stock cover...

As for feel, it feels pretty good to me. My riding buddy who has issues sitting long rides due to his prostrate loves his. It adds almost an inch of firm padding with a large "waffle" type surface. For $15 it's worth a try, if it doesn't work out you can always sell it to a KLR guy!

As for the height, I don't really notice it although it's a bit higher, by the time it compresses you are gaining maybe 1/2 inch.

I have a tall firm DR seat with a blue cover that I might sell, it's a little too tall for me at 5'10", maybe 2" taller and really firm. I liked it, but it's just a bit too tall. I may ride it one more time before I decide to let it go but shoot me a pm if interested.

Cogent Dynamics. Have a look at the forums over at Maximum Suzuki dot com. Rick is located in North Carolina and will have what you need.

I ran an electric vest and heated grips on my 250SE and it held proper voltage even at idle with everything (including hi beam) on - the 350's have the same electrical system (the e-start models anyway, dunno about the kick start ones) and should be similar in output.

I've been lurking for a while now. I have'nt ridden dirt in over 30 years, but just purchased a 90 dr350s with only 2500 miles. No pictures yet, but I'm tickled to death with this bike. It has only been riden 300 miles in the last 6 years so I am dealing with the issues of a bike that has sit alot. I just want to thank this forum for all of the helpful links and discussion.
Thanks,
Brian

Cool stuff, I'm sure you'll love the bike! If the carb is gumbd up take advantage of the situtation and buy a new TM33SS for it, huge improvement in throttle response

First, we may want to differentiate between the dirt and street models and model year. So you will have to be more specific on what you have.
