My 1994 DR 350 SE(R)
I don't normally ride with all that gear on the rear rack, but this photo was
taken while I was prepping the bike for a week long trip. A group of 8
rode from Couer D'Alene, ID to Glacier National park and back to Couer
D'Alene. Most of the trip was off highway travel. We covered 950
miles in 5 days. What a blast!!
After I removed all my good parts off the 94, this is what it looks
like. I installed the removed parts onto the 97
model that I bought in April 2000. I sold this bike in June of 2000.
|The cockpit of my 94 DR. Moose Roll chart holder
attached to left side of cross bar. 12v power outlet attached to
right turn signal, used to power my helmet cam video camera. Cheap wristwatch on
right side near controls. Dual Star's navigator map pack. I carry maps, camera, tire
gauge and other small essentials that I need quick access to in this pack.
||Front view of Navigator map pack. The pack slips down
over the headlight shroud and is secured to the forks with two straps that are equipped
with quick release buckles. These straps can be seen in the photo, on each side of
- Gearing: 15/47
- Strap removed from seat - this was the first change I made to the bike
- IMS wide foot pegs - these make a huge difference in comfort when riding the bike
standing up - highly recommended for serious trail riders.
- K&N air cleaner
- Drilled six holes in the airbox - three on each side
- Removed rubber snorkel from top of airbox
- Clarke gas tank: 4+ gallon capacity
- Motor rebuilt August 98, .030 over bore, using factory parts where replacement parts
were needed. Some of you may ask "Why didn't you go for a big bore kit during
the rebuild?" I went with a stock rebuild because the rebuild didn't cost me
anything other than trading for some stuff I had that the mechanic wanted.
- Front tire = Dunlop K139.
People say this is the best dual sport tire for a bike that sees mostly dirt. I
- Rear tire = Pirelli MT21. Same as above, I have never used any other tire on the rear
after I switched to it in '95.
- Tire pressure = 14 front and rear. I always carry a tire gauge when I ride.
After riding for an hour or so, the tires warm up causing an increase in pressure
so I lower them back to 14 PSI.
- Front Fender tube carrier.
- Stainless steel rear rack, this rack is reported to be "bomb
proof." I have even used it to carry a chainsaw to
clear course for local dual sport event.
Photos of rack: photo 1 photo 2
- Acerbis folding mirrors
- Acerbis Rallye hand guards
- Acerbis frame guards and front fork/brake rotor guards.
- Pro Grip gel grips, safety wired to prevent them from rotating on the handlebars
- Alumalite CR high bend bars shortened 3/4 inch on each side.
- I jettisoned the rear fender extension in favor of a small Acerbis fender extension with
incorporated license plate mount.
- 5.8 kg Eibach rear spring
- Progressive front springs
- 12v outlet on the dash to power my helmet mounted video camera
- Grip heaters - great for keeping hands warm on those early morning event
