Dr 350 mod

Hi,
I have a dr 350 se currently my winter bike and I have decided that it needs some tlc and some upgrades as I want it to be my new Sumer bike.
I have question that hopefully some one can answer for me.
The current suspension setup is standard and I would like to know of the USD dr350 are a good upgrade and do thy just bolt up with the standard disk speedo ect. Or should I go for some thing like a rm 250 suspension and 'make' it fit and do they still sell the vortex air box or has it been discontinued ?

Many thanks
Oliver

Can't really tell you on the DR350 USD forks, they weren't available over here. From what I've read though they aren't reported to be all that great. What year is your DR? If it's a 98 or 99 SE, it should already have the best stock suspension available with fully adjustable cartridge forks and shock.

The RM fork swaps seem to be fairly straightforward, though. If I ever get a chance at a cheap RM/RMZ/RMX front end, I'll probably do the swap. Most people just have to swap the DR steering stem into the RM triples, and maybe shave the top clamp a bit for clearance.

The Vortex air box is discontinued, sadly. They do pop up used from time to time, though.
