View Full Version : Rd350 tricks and tips

Got a 75 rd 350 twin 100% stock. I've been dying to get it back smoking pissing off people. I'm just looking for any good advice and good high performance parts for sell. My plan is to build a good running stock looking sleeper. And help would be great and we'll appreciated

Look up Stan Stephens in the UK. He is the MAN

Speed costs! All speed pipes=or make your own spannies. Carbon reeds etc

2T killer in the making!

If you are serious I suggest you get a copy of this....

I used to run a rd400e and a tdr250. Amazing the hp you can get!

I'm not sure if he will build a rd 350, on the site said only rd500 (did not know they went that high) but I will call him in the next week or so and talk to someone and see what all they are willing to do. I really appreciate the advice and pointing me in the right direction. I know its chop cult and this is not the best place for this forum but it's the only place I go.

I had an RD400 for a while and I recall that Banshee performance carbs and some other stuff fit that motor.
I believe "smoke on the water " is a UK based 2 stroke forum.

I have heard the same thing. I was reading that you have to shave about a inch from the bottom of banshee pistons . Something that I'm sure I can do. I was thinking if it's possible, run banshee pistons and carbs with boostedbottle and a electronic ignition and banshee reeds. Im not sure what to do to the crank. Lacking knowledge on 2 stroke cranks. Maybe if I'm feeling spunky and think it's possible getting a set of fuel injection body's on there from the newer overseas banshee models. Machining isn't a problem just need to know what it takes to make it stupid fast lol or at least a point in the right direction.

Banshee reed valves
Port the head, polish everything
Rz carbs
Electronic ignition

It's what I run on mine and it's perfectly rideable, but if you need it there is ample power
Enough to chase down most 600cc sport bikes
