mine has a tool tube, small windshield, rear rack, saddlebag mounts, corbin seat and a five gallon tank that was full. came in at 360lb. roughly 450 when loaded up for travelling. that's with hard bags and a duffle on the seat. seems like a lot but still bounces around offroad ok.

Some states do not allow dirt bikes to be street legal, not sure if your is like that.
I have the manufacturer's certificate, it says it is an 'S' model. I was assuming since its not an 'SE' then it must be the dirt bike version. Or are there three models? SE, S and dirt?

This is kick start only. How can I tell if it is a pumper carb without taking it apart?

If it is really a 350S then it's not a 95 but a 93 or older, OR it has had an engine swap. Double check the certificate against the frame and engine numbers.

'93 DR350S exhaust/parts for trade

Hey everyone, amazing forum you guys have, been browsing for a while or so... anyway,

working on getting my bike up to speed with all the mods I have in mind! I've got a 93 DR350S stock exhaust. Rust in the usual places, although not bad enough to put holes in the pipe or anything crazy like that... anyone out there have a (KNOWN) aftermarket pipe they'd be willing to trade for my stock one? Preferably FMF/Supertrapp (or, again, some other "welly known") can that has a "silencer" option (the silencers aren't that effective, I know, but a mans gotta try!)

Side note.. also looking for these parts if anyone has something lying around:
seat concepts or similar seat
acerbis 4.25gal tank
windshield
hand guards (with actual metal in them... acerbis comes to mind)
thumper racing big bore 443 (or was it 435?) that comes with all the necessary stuff

Just PM me if you have anything... thanks!

Can anyone tell me the difference between the S and SE models? suspension? carbs? electrical?

I'm wanting to run a Trail Tech 8" race light on the front and wondering if the stock stator can handle that? what upgrades will be necessary?

As I recall there was some ambiguity about model numbers for 1995 even in the Suzuki literature. When I first got my 95 the shop fiche was never quite clear on it. Possibly because the "S" indicated model year 95, so a DR350S was a 95 dirt model and a DR350SES was the street model. 93 models were DR350P and DR350SP, 94's were DR350R and DR350SER.

The only street model that was called DR350S was the 1990. A 91 was DR350SM.

All of the above was gleaned from the factory shop manual.

If it has a VIN plug it in here http://www.vehiclehistory.com/index_...FacWMgodfDYAZA and maybe there will be a little info on it.

On the headlight, both the S and and the SES use a 55 watt headlight.

A while ago someone post pics of a pumper carb.

Ah ha! You nailed it. I also found this to confirm:


That is the exact trim of my bike. Plastic tank, kick start only, no license plate holder.
Thanks for the info on the stator. I ordered my Trail Tech 8" race light last night...
Time to begin the lengthy process of making this street legal in the bass-akward state of NM.

Forgot about the year designation. You most likey have a dirt model built in year "S".
91-M
92-N
93-P
94-R
95-S
96-T
97-V
98-W
99-X

Pumper carb (TM33) looks like this http://www.showandgo.com.au/mikuni/t....htm~mainFrame You most likey have one.

The easiest way I spot a dirt vs street model is to look at the grab bar. If it has the mounts for the blinkers it is a Street.
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trks...b+bar&_sacat=0

The next give away are the headlight cowl. The Street has vertical sides
http://dayerses.com/data_images/post...r-350-s-03.jpg

where as the dirt has the smaller light and angled sides.

Awesome, thanks for the help.
Here is a pic of the carb, I'm pretty sure the vertical rod (heh heh) in the back is the pumper assembly

Put a TM33 on the '99 SE today and.....bejesus.

Talk about falling in love again...wow.

If you're willing to allocate the $ for it, it's a world of difference. But.....everybody else has said/typed the same thing for a long time. Late to the game, as usuaul, eh.

Now needing to learn fuel mileage...

background…

I bought the bike almost two months ago and have started it about 2 times a week and had it idle for 10 minutes because Its not registered yet.

it cranks but just does not want to turn over. It gets close, try it 20 seconds later and it sounds like a relay or starter going really fast "clickclickclickclickclick"

new battery 2 weeks ago
just replaced spark plug
just put new gas in the tank

any advice?
an update,

I tried to 'jump' the bike with my car battery, with out starting my car.
this did not work, the bike did not turn over.

I then shorted the solenoid with a screwdriver by touching both 'terminals' on the solenoid. There was only a very small spark and nothing happened when the key was turned to 'on'.

any ideas?

Starter is failing. Give it (the starter) a few knocks with a big screwdriver handle while pushing the start button and see what happens.

Could also be a bad ground at the battery or the frame..

Sounds great. I've got one here I haven't installed yet. Was planning to talk to Jesse about jetting it. How did you jet yours? I think he had told me a 140 main, but I can't remember about the pilot or needle. My '99 has a cut airbox and FMF exhaust.

I keep debating the same thing. What's your first impression? What type of riding to you do?
