I have been looking at both these bikes and im trying to decide between the two. Also, do any of you know any sites for DR 350 info. And the last thing is do any of you have DR 350 of KLX 300 for sale. Im looking for 94 to 1998 or 1999.Any info is appreciated.Thanks.

Do a web search for dr350, there were a couple of dr sites, one at off-road.com
For the KLX info go to planetklx.com for lots of info.
The last I looked there was a klx for sale in the dirtnet forum classified.

I also considered a DR350 before buying my KLX300. I've been very happy with my decision. The bike is light, handles well, and has enough power for the type of riding I do.

Ridden both and IMO the KLX is much more fun in the woods. It handles much better and is a lot lighter. Both respond well to suspension work and a little motor work, but the KLX is quite a bit more capable in the rough, tight stuff.

The DR has a lot more grunt down low and in the midrange than a stock KLX, however.

Buy the klx! It feels lighter. It starts better.It handles better.I have owned
both. DR feels like it has more power
but its not as fast in the woods.

Buy the klx. I have owned and raced both bikes. The DR has more low end grunt but the klx is much lighter and handles a whole lot better everywhere.

go with klx, i have a dr 250, and it is a fricken pig. it runs good and it think my dr would beat a klx i rode in the quarter mile, but in the woods the klx would stomp a mudhole in the dr and walk it dry.
