Ok I should preface this by saying I have rebuilt carbs in the past with good results - But my 97 dr 350se carb is beyond me- Here is what it WAS doing- when I rode flat out or over a hill it would start to spit and sputter like it was running out of fuel. If I let it sit a minute it would start and run fine unless I gassed it hard again (I have a translucent tank so I knew I had fuel) so I figured the float bowl was going empty too fast for some reason and it would clear up if I cleaned the carb. Not wanting to tear it apart just yet I dosed the gas with Seafoam first to see if that would clear it out- it helped but did not clear it up completely so I decided to clean the carb- big mistake Ok so I took it apart completely and cleaned everything, set the float to where it was supposed to be using a caliper (around 14mm) and I set the mixture screw to around two turns out - It started ran like a champ for 10 seconds then started loading up and bogging out and missing, shit! So went to the forum boards and everyone said to make sure to replace the o-rings for the needle seat and the plastic cage that holds the float, and make sure the slow jet was clean and seated well - shit that didn't work. did some more reading and got to thinking maybe the guy who sold it to me put a larger jet in it for a pipe and never swapped it when he put the stock one back on and sold it to me - I bought 127.5, 135, and 137.5 main jets so I could put the stock 127.5 in and maybe get a pipe later for the others- nope that didn't work when it would run I noticed it developed an exhaust leak so I decided to try putting an aftermarket pipe on thinking maybe that had something to do with it- tried it with all three main jets- no dice Checked my petcock to make sure it was good - it was, Checked the plug on the frame to make sure I was getting spark- I was I am out of ideas and thinking it is something simple I am overlooking Does anybody out there in ADVrider world have an idea what is going on with my poor suzuki? any help would be much appreciated!!!!!
