Yes the brakes are adequate, handling ok, if soft sprung and trials tires on road are ok. Other than after about 10-30 seconds at max rpm and max velocity, there was never so much as a hickup. Narrow seat It's a trials seat and not long, so cramped for 2 up riding. Not sure what the suspension will do with the added weight on it, but its great for me. Off road I've found she's fine for pretty much anything non compeditive but the suspention is a little soft for all but the smallest of jumps and never have trouble following the more modern up to date kinda bikes. A worn or dirty inlet valve or seat.
After getting used to the bike on my property, i went for my first trail ride along with an older cr500 and late model yz250. If anyone has fixed the stock carb , I am all ears. Steve Thank you for your comments Strom. I also find it pretty stable on the interstate but I really don't like trying to manuever with semi's and cell phone soccer mom's if you know what I mean. If it's so good, why sell it u say? Time to move on is all. Faulty ignition coil and or connections. I had zero issues with stumbling at 70-80 mph as mentioned by a previous poster.
Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty. Hey Mule, I also wanted a natural tank as I like the look and like to be able to see how much fuel is left. I have to believe a larger fuel line might help or I may have to rheem out the fuel connection at the Carb. Hopefully not so much now. This is a safety issue. The Honda would take 3 proimer kicks, then stall then kick some more.
You've sold me on the Acerbis. Feel free to comment and bump that thread back up dc Thank you for your comments Strom. Click at the button below to get to the main page with frames.

Good luck and have a wonderful day. I would start with the pilot jet first as this 99% of the time the answer good luck mate regards Jamie Answered on Jul 03, 2011. I've got a 250 and 350 virtually the same bike and like them both quite well. Came here from a search engine? I am also including 2 tire tubes and a Clymer manual. It confirms my belief that it's an almost perfect ''Dual Sport'' add a few mods and it is as close as you get. I literally don't have any time or money to put into it.
Though wouldn't one of those problems show up somewhere else? That being said, it has a slightly small tank, ~2 gallons, but I got an average of 65-70 mpg out of my 350, and that was not going reserved on the throttle. Part of the reason I loved that bike so much is that I was pretty ignorant of bike maintenance at that time. Please support my music career! The engine would die, the rear tire would lock in the stall, drag me down to about 60 mph, and then restart once some gas flowed back into the bowl. All registered in England and Wales. On road she's taken me on a few 1000 mile plus trips without a problem. Few scratches on plastics, etc, from off road riding no cracks.
I didn't do that and 27,000km into a great upgraded bike and it exploded on me. The counterbalance shaft is driven out the front of the engine case and oil everywhere. Particle contamination in inlet fitting cavity. Not sure what the suspension will do with the added weight on it, but its great for me.

Most of the cons I've just read are non-issues for me but I only weigh 145 and at 5'6'' It feels like a bigger bike.
