dr350 survivor now in the hands of a rider...

Well it's been four months since I bought my cherry DR350. When I bought the bike I knew I wanted to mod it though. I sold the tank/matching plastics to a board member in FL, the used near death tires on craigslist for a song, and dropped a little coin on the ole girl.

I wanted to make NO engine modifications. She starts and runs perfect. I did however add an easy pull clutch arm from keintech. Great mod for the price.

The tires were replaced with dunlop 606s because I ride a good amount of dirt and sand and needed something more on the offroad side. An Acerbis tank with some barkbusters jumped on board to. I wrapped it up with some Maier plastics and voila....my perfect dual sport.

Today I logged 85 miles, two MX tracks, and some dirtroad action.

I love it!!!

Today after I got home...

Looks good for an old classic DS bike. I had a '92 myself a few years back. Did everything to it and rode it everywhere. I too settled on the D606 rear tire, but the front was no good in the sand. I found the Pirelli scorpion pro, or XCMH, or even the MT-16 front worked better in the loose stuff. Try one next time and see if you agree. All 3 are DOT approved.

Now just remove the rear fender extension and bolt the plate directly to the fender
