Mods planned are.

Get the 1993 DR250s I've got my eye on.

Swap parts between bikes so I can to make one good bike that's registerable, and one that's a dirt buster.

Keep the rego one standard mostly.

Put a 385 kit in 350, pumper carb, jet, airbox mod etc.
I'm thinking of swapping the trans gear over, but unsure yet.
Either respring/valve standard shocks, or RM250 shocks and front end, and something in the rear, maybe fully rebuild and respring the standard shock aswell.

Stainless brake lines, rebuild brake master cylinders.

Either Kenda K270's or Pirelli's for the 350.

Paint strip frame and repaint, repair if needed.

Repaint engine with high temp paint.

Hi mate.

They are UFO dual headlight twin halogens.

Should be able to ebay them, it was already on the bike when I got it.

Cheers.

shorter front forks

I am in the process of lowering a 98se I have the 2" lowering ling and the forks pushed all the way up in the triples, but the front end still seems high, are there any other things I can do? I was really hoping for a spacer similar to the Dr650 configuration, but I don't see that in the parts diagram, so then I would need to make some and get shorter springs. Or are there other options?

Does anyone know if Jesse from Kientech can ship to Australia?

I'd rather do a 'bulk' order to try and save on what will probably be fairly high postage.

Mick.

How tall are you?

Can you get lower seat foam?

Sorry I can't be of more help. I'm looking to go the other way with mine! Up! lol

I think he would. Just call him and say what you said here. I am sure it could be arranged. Not like ordering from a normal online retailer.

I think I'd rather email.

Not keen on a billion dollar phone call just to ask a simple question!

Cheers.

I did something similar a few weeks ago...

I ditched the "console TV" taillight and installed a generic taillight, a couple of LED pods for the brake lights, and a pair of flushmount turn signals from my local Cycle Gear.


Before...



After...

Turn Signals

Here's another option. Really cheap clearance lights. If you manage to break one or a bulb goes out, you can find one at any auto parts store any where for almost nothing. And they work with the really cheap thermal flashers. Did I mention they are really cheap.

Try Skype. You buy some credit and then call on the computer. When I call Mexico it takes the rate from US$1/minute to US$0.10.

I have emailed him before and had a response the next day. If you mail him at night, you might get a response that night, due to time differencee.
He is probably capable of quoting you international shipping. He is just a dude working on stuff, for other dudes. Should be real easy to ask him for Australia shipping.

I emailed him from the UK a couple of months ago about ordering a pumper carb kit; his wife said that they weren't doing any international shipping anymore. Maybe that has changed now?

Still, it made me reconsider my plans and so saved me lots of money, both on the carb and future gas mileage.

Its quieter than my loud can I currently have on. Can't compare to stock... however... I can barely start my bike with this exhaust.. it will require a rejet..

Any of you boys know what jetting I should run at 300-2000 ft elevation? Stock airbox.. will mod airbox too.
