Then, I would ride it like I stole it and see what happens. If it doesn't blow up or start making crazy sounds, then I'd never worry about it again. If it did suffer major internal damage, then I don't think you are going to spend any more money riding it now, anyway.

Follow-up:

I've done a test-drive yesterday and it starts quite well... starting the engine was no trouble, driving ok... untill it stalled some 500 meters further... I feared the worst, but then remembered I'd forgotten to open the petcock...

I restarted and ran it untill it was warm. No strange engine noises, nothing out of the ordinary.... I did have some issues in finding neutral at every stop, so I guess I need to check the clutch thrust washers and the bolt in there.... So plan for next spare moment: drain the oil, check the clutch, grease all linkages and bearings, check the cam and valves and I should be ok for some driving...

Regards

Patrick

Any of you boys know what jetting I should run at 300-2000 ft elevation? Stock airbox.. will mod airbox too.
I have a jesse modified muffler, CV carb, uncut airbox with snorkle tube. I run the stock CV jetting for my 1993 model (direct from the book). Works great for me and I live at 2200 feet and ride up from here almost exclusively.

Awesome news! When I bought my DR350 back in 2009, I had to replace a missing shift drum bolt (bent the "L" shaped bracket when I did that and had to go back in afterward to straighten it)...I also clearanced the basket at the same time. It works a treat now unless I really heat up the clutch doing things I really should have had lower gearing for in the first place.

Regards,

Gregory Bender

A call back to jesse should remedy this situation. He gave me a baseline to start with based on my set up carb, needle, airbox, etc

I'll try to post up a picture tomorrow, it was too dark for a decent shot when I got it home today.
Just an update on the bike:

After a good carb cleaning, it now runs relatively normally. I'm waiting on new O-rings and a float valve assembly to finish up the carb, but I couldn't resist putting it back on the bike to test it and run it up and down the street a bit. I discovered that the clutch slips pretty badly, but it could be due to the fact that the clutch cable is almost frozen. I have a new one on order.

Other than that, I just put on new turn signals, grips, and mirrors to replace the torn up old ones, installed a new air filter, and removed the kickstand and clutch starter interlocks. It's starting to come together.

On a related note, I'm looking for a luggage rack. I have a pair of Pelican cases that I want to mount and it would be nice to just buy a rack. However, I can build one too, so I'm not willing to shell out a a couple hundred for a new rack, so if anyone happens to have an old rack lying around that they want to get rid of relatively cheaply, let me know. Thanks!

some more info to help support this theory, I emailed him about frame guards (the ones by the footpegs he used to get, they were aluminum ones..) He dont deal international anymore, but he did point me to a company in Austrailia that still makes the frame guards and sells them. PRetty pricy to get a set here though. (close to 150 US dollars..)

What company still makes them? Maybe we can do a bulk purchase to keep the cost down?

I don't think anybody minds if you post it here. But, normally, here... http://www.advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=14 , under "parts. "Then post a link to it here.

Cam Chain Tensioner

My cam chain measures about 127.5mm across 21 pins(center to center), spec is 128.9 so that seems OK. The chain has about 20K miles on it.

The sliders show no wear.

So I installed the tensioner per the book and then removed the spring before pulling out the tensioner. The push rod was 3 clicks from being fully extended.

Is this normal?

Does anyone know what the 21 pin measurement is on a new chain?

OK...here are the details!

I bought my DR350 a few months ago and it came with a Corbin seat as well as the original seat, which I prefer. The guy I bought the bike from bought this seat himself about 2-3 years ago. He paid around $350 for it. It is in great shape with no rips tears, cuts, etc.

I am willing to sell it for $225.

Below is a pic of the seat on my bike;
