good one, I enjoy mixing up the ride between the TTR & WRR, plus the Scrambler & Thruxton

Cheers Terry

And home in time for tennis, no less.  Nice fleet of DRs smile I don't ride much in winter so I've been working on a 1990 DR350S.  I can start the thing now pretty reliably but man that is a tough cold kickstart and I only weigh 150 lbs, bruised the crap out of my leg and foot the first afternoon I spent "kicking for England" (as a guy on the suzuki max site says whatever that might mean).  And the dry sump takes quite a while to warm up (don't set the idle cold!).  Carb job, valves and fluids and we seem to be in business, suspension and sprockets are next but I need some miles on it first.

I'd appreciate it if all you regular posters would go out and buy an early model DR350 and start rebuilding.  I haven't found anything close to this forum for the DR.

BTW that was an Oregon fire crew that went down a few weeks ago, sadly.  We get Aussie and NZ crews over here every summer, including those guys who nearly bought it in the Carr Fire year before last.

I tried the 400s  didn't like them just a bit heavy and tiring to ride.  My dr250 went well  the 250s can easily be taken out to a 300 with an oversize piston  but woukd need a reason to pull it apart 

 

Haven't ridden the 350  

 

I'm liking being able to choose between the ttr and the Dr  depending on what's planned on the day

 I went from a XR400 ( very much like a DRZ400 ) to the TTR & I believe the TTR is a better ride

The only thing I like better about the 350, other than the braaap, is this one little feature on the rear fender. TTR is a way better bike off road so far as I can tell.

 The guys were making fun of my heavy back pack only to need it a few hours later.  First puncture kit the glue had gone hard but I had a second one which was OK I've ordered a new kit 

Annoyingly I found two sets of levers have since removed one  set 

I carry all the gear but as yet only used it on other bikes 

The flat was a bugger mainly because of the hot day and everything including the ground had been burnt
