Please see the follow-up information at the bottom of this section.

Buy O-rings for your DR350. Good quality + low prices.

I wanted to add an hour meter to my DR350 to aid in knowing when to perform routine maintenance. I found one on eBay made by ProPower.

I made a simple bracket out of some aluminum flat stock I had, and mounted it to the left bolt that secures the trip meter in place.

As for wiring, I grounded it to the bolt on the frame that normally secures the wiring harness loom in place with a clip. For the positive supply, I hooked it into circuit feeding the headlight.

A quick test showed it functions fine. I like that it is out of the way, yet easily viewed whenever I have the desire.

Follow-up

The Pro Power hour meter lasted for 79.9 hours and then died. Obviously it was not up to the task. I do not recommend the Pro Power hour meter.
