Default 1998 Suzuki DR350SE

Street legal, electric start dual sport with just under 10k miles. The predecessor to the DRZ400 and arguably the better bike. Six speed transmission, simple air cooled engine, easy tappet screw valve adjusts. The 98/99 street models got the better suspension from the dirt model. 60mpg but still can do 70+ mph easily.

Owned this since 2011.
New battery and carb clean Spring 2018. Starts and runs great.

Two sets of wheels makes it two bikes in one:
Street (Shinko 705's with a ton of life left)
Dirt (Dunlop 606's, older, rear has a lot of meat, front is a bit cupped so I flipped it)

FMF exhaust, carb jetted
Acerbis handguards
Oxford Heated grips
Voltmeter on dash
Renthal bars
Acerbis 4.2 gal tank (not currently installed)
All bulbs converted to LED (headlight, tail light, turn signals, license plate, and dashboard lights)
Raptor petcock, T-vent mod
Rear rack with helmet-sized locking topcase
Bikemaster mirrors
Aux LED lights mounted to mirror stems (not pictured)

The bad and ugly:
In it's previous lives, it was used as a dirtbike and a 4-season commuter. As such, it's far from flawless - rash, scrapes, and rust here and there.
The speedometer only works up to ~48 mph, doesn't indicate any higher. Been this way since I've owned it. Odometer works normally.
The Acerbis tank is yellowed and kinda ugly.
The rear dirt wheel needs new bearings

Asking $2400, or trade for plated lightweight dirt/trail bike.
