Tried to install new throttle tube on CRF150. The replacement tube does not fit in the housing. The flange on the tube is too wide. Put old tube back on and safety wired the grip. Purchased Camelbaks and a mini pump. Please someone, anyone, tell me; when do I stop bleeding $$$$?

That's a rhetorical question.

Putting on new steering head bearings today. The previous bearings were rusted out, full of dirt, and over-tightened. I will put the bike back together and load up in prep for leaving tomorrow after work!

Just bought a big bore kit...

... new old stock Cycle Gear Wiseco DR350 84.4mm 400cc piston & rings on ebay for $54 to the door. That's way too big for the DR350's stock cylinder & sleeve, which only had a 78mm piston. Thankfully, Suzuki copied almost the entire top end of the DR350 for their Eiger ATV line, which has a 376cc piston with a much larger and thicker sleeve from the factory.

I picked up an Eiger cylinder last year for next to nothing. Bored out for the DR "400" piston, it'll still have a sleeve thickness of around 3.7mm. Plenty.

Between a bore and hone at the local shop, plus costs for that piston, cylinder and gaskets, I think I'll have ~$165 total in the entire thing.

I took my TM 250 to Oscar (Racepace Motorsports) and he fixed my rear brake. Picked it up too. I made the obligatory mess trying to fix it myself first.

Oversized piston came in.

Some folks in a large DR350 thread have had issue with Wiseco's 10.5:1 replacement pistons in the DR, citing audible detonation at times. Others claim to have no issues.

I did some math on this ancient 400cc Cycle Gear Wiseco piston, and it too looks like it'll come out to around 10.5:1.

Is that too much for 93 octane in you all's eyes? Remember - this is an air cooled bike.

At worst, I could probably have a machine shop mill a pocket in the center of this thing to reduce the compression a little bit. That would preserve the squish band around the edge, and buy me a little extra wiggle room. Running race gas would be a pain (and not something I want on a dual sport). There's a programmable CDI available, but it doesn't play well without a dedicated battery. This DR350 only has an tiny and rather old/spent 12V NiMH battery up front to put a load on the system.

Thoughts?

My DR350S detonated up the hill to Metcalf, on the stock piston.

Washed, added some slack to the throttle, and fixed a flat front tire. Turned some slow circles in my street after that to work on head position and dragging the rear brake.

I washed it really well a couple of days ago after a good ride at Clear Creek. I hope it is ok, as I need to ride it this weekend in the Wild Rabbit.

Put my bikes away today after the weekend at StonyBARF. Sure enough one bike fell off the stand and left a nice gouge down my drivers door. Bummer.

Will start the disassembly of the YZ to get the timing dialed in, readjust the float bowl, and then figure out why the switch isn't turning on the light. Lots of little things to do.

New brake pads. I feel I got my money's worth out of these ones.

I must be doing something wrong. I will have to check my log, but I am pretty sure I am on my original rear pads on the bike I purchased in Nov. 2007. And not worn down like dub's but like 80% or more material remaining.
