I added some extra tension on the choke knob with a zip tie around the opening. Works great.

What is the most high HP DR350 based bike in this thread?

I remember Cycle Gear use to specialize in them. I had one I spent a ton on in the early 1990s. Magic Airbox, carby, pipe, big bore, everything.

I was recently cleaning and rejetting the carb when this issue arose. I just replaced the choke assembly and all is well and no awkward holding of the knob required. A few bucks well spent.

Most of us know that the enrichment circuit is not technically a "choke". The rest wouldn't know the difference anyway. In neither case does it matter. For purposes of discussing motorcycles in general and the DR350 in particular, we all know what is meant by "Choke", "Choke knob", etc.

Why don't you spend some time correcting spelling and grammar in JM? - I'm sure your efforts will be warmly received.

Anyone have an extra rear wheel they'd like to sell?

you reach in there with a wrench and turn the black nut the shaft goes thru into the carb, righty-tighty.

I don't see how that would make the detent work better.

I don't understand the hostility toward raising the bar.

What is the advantage of imprecise language?

If meanings are continually perverted, then language eventually becomes such that no one can any longer be sure what others are really talking about at any given time. There are many examples of this in common usage, and I'm against every single one.

Derek

I think the issue isn't of an advantage of one or the other but rather of time and place. This is a casual forum where people from all walks of life gather and share information. To continually point out the difference between such minimally differing terms as "enrichment circuit" and "choke" when the difference between the two isn't at issue is just obnoxious. Why cause a detour when traffic was flowing fine?

If your bike has been running great, have never messed with the carb and tuning and it starts to pop on decel, the most common reason this starts to happen is that the exhuast header is loose, or you blew out an exhaust gasket. That would be worth the concern. Or the airbox door has fallen off, also worth looking into.

If you are fiddling with your bike's tuning, and get it where you think it is good and it pops a little on decel, plug readings look good, then I would not worry about it.
I don't know about all of that. Maybe we have a different definition of "popping on decel". Pretty sure all of my dirt bikes have done it. I think caused more by a comparatively short exhaust system and a muffler leaning toward performance (less baffles and sound reduction)...compared to, say, a Goldwing. The worst lean bike I ever had was a brand new '72 Ossa Pioneer. That thing would detonation knock just going constant speed down the road. Took it back to the dealer and they had to send to Spain for a new carb. They said the original had a factory defect that could not be repaired. Rode it 2 years after that on the TX enduro circuit before switching to trials. And those old late 50's V8 Fords with glass packs would "pop" so much you could here them for blocks. The 6 cyl Chevys with steel packs were about as bad, and I'm pretty sure they were not lean. Never seen a performance vehicle with a low restriction exhaust that didn't pop on decel. I know old Fords and Chevys are not DR350s but, it never even enter my mind that something was wrong.

You claim to know whether the specific individuals that comprise these "people from all walks of life" personally have a distaste for learning and/or precision? And you claim to speak for them?
