Well the consensus is "ultra lean condition". Not sure why yet, but new carb is on the way. I'll look at the top end when I get back in to town at the end of the weekend and the carb should be here by then. Also going to check the carb boot and other air leaks.

FYI stock airbox with K&N filter is all.

New carb in. Now no fucking spark?!?!? Tested coil, results unconvincing. Tested pick up and stator (Which tend to be the failure point in the scenario) and they test like they should. New coil on the way. Damnit..damnit...damint

Electrical always pisses me off.

Ok time to get caught up. New coil fixed the no spark and now it starts and runs way better than I thought it would.

Welded new tab onto subframe for passenger grip and pannier mount. Also painted part of frame as a test.


Purple will eventually go away.

Cool build!
I'm rebuilding a 96' DR-350SE (electric start).
What did you use for frame paint?

Rustolium HD metalic grey Hammered. Working dry in 90 minutes and looks way better than the purple. Covers good and will go on over rust and old paint. Got my test can at Ace Hardware for under $8. I may strip the rest of the tail tonight and paint the remainder of the subframe. Depends of how early I have to wake up tomorrow to go look at VFR's.
