It is in good condition and pulls very nicely - I did a test ride before being modded to all left hand controls - I would not like to try that now... ;)

Beautiful '96, where did you find this fine specimen and how much$ ??

He bought it 2 years ago from the original owner an old toppie in PTA by the name of Braam.
Paid 23k bike just had a 7k service so in my mind i paid 17 ;)
Bike has 38 000 km on it.

XR600/400 22L tank can be made to fit with very few challenges.

Acerbis 16L fits like a glove - import only it seems.

Ek is ook op soek na 'n XR400 22l tank.  As daar 'n group buy gedoen word sal ek belang stel.

Did a trip to Bray mid September, some interesting fuel figures
Had to travel back to Mahikeng via Vryburg by tar to escort a DR-Z with leaking back shock.

To Bray Off-road technical and high speed Kalahari sand 23.4km/l
Mid-speed sand and 85km/h tar 27.5km/l
Mid speed 85-90km/h tar slight tail wind 35km/l
Mid speed 90-95km/h tar angled headwind 29km/l

Riding mates bikes
Yammie Tenere - no problems
Triumph XC - one tumble in the Sand-monster - no other problems
GS800 - leaking front shocks, still handled technical and sand sections - no other problems
DR-Z - rear suspension seal popped making for tricky ride in the sand. Workshop had cut the oil breather pipe and did not replace so was blowing oil over eveything
KTM 525 - great bike for the type of ride - blew the stator on the way home so had to deal with the Kom Tow Me call  :peepwall:

Easier to find a XR400 than a DR350 tank locally.
Best is to import and ship with Aramex Global Shopper - they charge by weight not volume. Make sure to request a commercial invoice for customs - they are very sticky at the moment on their revenue recovery drive.

Tenere is a beast when it comes to reliability. I have been to Bray and Vanzyls twice on Tenere's and they ran like a Japanese watch  :biggrin: On the second trip the Tenere even had a oil pump working at 10% and it still ran without me even knowing it.

Hi All

May be looking at selling my bike.  Just a feeler at the moment. Its Herms bike that he did the rebuild on.  Has just been serviced 600km ago by Herms before i took delivery.  Bike has been roadworthied and is on my name.  Steering head bearings need to be replaced.  I am still waiting on stock.

Price R17500.

If anyone is interested please PM me.  The bike has pumper carb fitted, supertrapp exhuast, oil cooler, acerbis 16l tank, oil temp guage. Besides the steering head bearings bike is in great condition.  Bike is in Port Elizabeth.  Reason for selling, to do a bit of a long tour in a bit more of a rush than i would want to put this bike through.
PM sent. Meh, just realized that, that is a 2013 post  :bueller:

Seen in my area! I like! I want! :thumleft:

2001 Model DR 350 SE, with 11 000 kms on the clock. Owner does not want to sell, yet! :)

Were these the last DR 350s available in SA?
Gentlemen

It has been more than 7 years but I'm finally the proud owner of this black 1999 DR 350 SE!

It has not been ridden since 2013, so still has 11k on the clock!

I have already started stripping and cleaning it.

The bike is stock, and as complete as can be. Even the complete toolkit is still there!

The rear shock's bump stop is perished, and I will have the shock serviced at the same time.

I furthermore require a new air filter, and the carb's diaphram is slightly torn.

The airbox will have the snorkel removed for starters, and an aftermarket exhaust cannister will be sourced and fitted.

Motocomp has main and pilot jets, as well as a new needle and seet.

We have owned 4 DR 650 SEs, 4 DR 200s and a DR 250 Djebel, so really excited to get this fine specimen up and running again!

If you can assist with any parts, let me know. I also need a workshop manual in digital format. I have not been successful on the internet.

Thanking you in advance!
