New Brake Line. What a moerse difference those Venhills made. Still locking up the front regularly with one finger.

or take your old hose to a hose/hydraulics shop and get them to make you a braided hose.  :thumleft:

a 350 is nearly the size of a DR650, runs comfy at 120km/h I'm sure. My DR250 runs at 115km/h easily with my 105kg on. You'll prolly feel the extra weight of 2 up, but then I felt that on my 1100GS, 650 Strom and now XR650 as well.

It is just a good, value for money all rounder, light and nimble enough for technical stuff, and touring as well.

I agree with LX on the speed. 100-120 is peanuts for cruisin, with enough oemf left do keep the speed on medium inclines.

Consuption with stage3 mods (jets airbox 385cc piston 10.5:1 comp)
80km/h -26km/l
100km/h -22km/l
120-130km/h -17km/l
140+km/h full throttle (not recomended on knobblies) -14km/l and less

100km trips is fine for the DR but more than 300km per day WILL kill your arse.

I weigh 100kgs and is 1.96m in length. Not a good bike if you are under 1.75m tall. Remember that this is a tall bike.
