so what's the PN# for the ignition pick up? I tried to look it up with no results,
Probably a speck in the pilot jet. Did you clean the tank before installing a new carb? Is there a fuel filter?

If ignition pickup was bad, it probably wouldn't run at all. You COULD have a bad coil or plug cap (worth swapping out the latter if you have one handy) but I think a carb issue is more likely.

new carb, new tank with new blaster petcock with a filter, I pulled the main and pilot jet out and flushed , put in a new plug too,

tomorrow night I'm gonna set the valves. done it once before, but he's worn out a rear tire since then too.

carb is different, will need throttle cable change, spacer for the intake boot , as for the engine, might be a difference in stator plug for charging the battery that the dirt model doesn't have.'

The '94 or newer dirt model motor will "bolt" in but there are carb differences as pointed out by Toadady and the dirt model stator will not charge the SE battery (single phase 70 watt versus 3 phase 150 watt - it more than just a different connector) nor will it operate the SE electrical components. Before '94 the stator and rotor were mechanically interchangeable between the models so it was possible to retrofit a dirt model engine with S model charging components. However, with the advent of electrical starting in 1994 the bottom end of the SE engine was changed - the crankshaft is longer to allow room for the starter gear/clutch. The SE stator MAY fit in the dirt model case but the rotor is different and definitely won't work on the dirt model crankshaft. And there is a difference in dirt model CDI and the one on the S/SE models. The S model has circuitry for the starter interlock, neutral light and provides a signal for the tachometer that is missing on the dirt model. Pre '94 models have a different CDI (single trigger rather than double).

I incorrectly posted that Scotts no longer had a damper for my 97 Dr 350. Please disregard.


OTE=MrPulldown;23684135]I am sure you can mount a Scott Dampener on the DR350, they still list it on their web site. http://www.scottsonline.com/Stabiliz...d=&BI_ID=14211
They only sell the weld on version.

Seems like it will work fine. It is the $400 that is holding me back. For some reason they do not have the head tube clamp version, that all the rest of the modern bikes use.

A WER version might be easier and cheaper to mount.

The bolt on oil dip stick version is no longer sold. IMO it was a pretty bad design. DR350 tend to consume a bit of oil. It is common for the oil ring on the piston to get stuck. I know many have perfectly running DRs that do not drink a drop , but I check and fill regularly. Running an air cooled bike low on oil is its death song. A machined "bolt" replaces the dip stick and the tower clamps to the bolt.

I would think aftermarket LED lights expect 12-15 volts DC. There is no DC on a dirt model as there is no rectifier. The dirt model lights run on AC.
