Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE





quick update: swapped a dirt rear bar & cash for pillion pegs. The old community x-ring chain replaced a worn chain. SE rear bar from cheap big box of parts. Next up will be handlebars & grips. F-caliper needs attention, carb is loading up & got an oil drip to track down.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE



pinpointed the oil drip to the output shaft seal, replaced it.
new pads appear to have fixed the f-brake performance & noise.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE

It is nice to see this thread. I ended up with a 92 dr350s last week. The bike is pretty rough, been outside for a while, but it is all there except for the right hand side cover.

I haven't got it started yet, but I did finally get fire at the plug. I pulled the valve covers tonight, and will set the valves tomorrow. I ordered some misc parts today/carb kit/ throttle cables etc.

The compression is good, I can barely kick it through after the compression release pops back. I wish it had the magic button!!! I hope that I don't have to tear into the engine.

Your bike definitely looks better than mine!

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE

Great bikes. Good at nothing, bad at nothing. My son is about to head up the Mexican Riviera on a 2200 mile road trip from Zihuatanejo to Phoenix. This is him in Guanajuato.

inspect the rockers & cam as well as you can from the valve cover holes for scoring.
if you need any parts or help, let me know
good luck

Thanks! This thing has had a rough life in its 3800 mile career.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE / I won round 1 !!!

Well I finished what I started yesterday evening on the DR350s. After draining no less than 2 gallons of oil out of the little DR, I adjusted the valves and checked the decompression lever freeplay. I added the 1.8 quarts of oil...not the gallons that were in it. The poor thing sounded like it was gurgling with the spark plug out of it.

I verified spark once again, it was good. I put the tank on...and proceeded to hike my leg up to kick this little beast....

1, 2, 3, 4, nothing. Verified the choke and backed off the idle screw again.
1, 2 it started!!! Ran about 15 seconds and died...

I kicked it again and it started 1st kick. I ran it for a few minutes and readjusted the idle to run with the choke/fuel enricher off. No tail pipe smoke and it sounded decent. I started it again and videoed it to prove that it at least ran today!

Now I will put some rubber on it (tires are rotten), and the handful of new parts I ordered. And it needs some serious beautification.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE

This thread makes me happy. I love when someone takes a bike and gives it some love after years of abuse and neglect.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE

Sweet! I haven't started paperwork on mine. Worse case, I will play with it off-road.

Re: 92 Suzuki DR350SE

Today, I actually rode the little DR around my parking lot at my shop. I removed the carb and installed a kit that I had ordered (I had done a quick o-ring replacement to get it started originally a few days ago). Corrected the idle mixture screw which was originally at 2 1/4. Starts now on second kick cold. First kick hot.

I need to start a thread to show the progress and not hijack this one!!!
