New-old dr350 rescue

Hi everybody.

I've bought a '93 model of of someone who painted the yellow frame silver with a brush. Revs do stick occasionally when hot and finding neutral is a mission.

But I have faith. I know it can be great again.

Main issues for now are the sticking revs and it is underpowered. Air filter smells of fuel. 

Mods that were done:

Air box cut open

K&N filter

Arrow exhaust

MJ is 135 and PJ 42.5. Two extra holes in the slider and needle is on the 4th groove (from top)

My question is where do I start? Oil and general cleanup and carb clean are done. Valves in spec.

get stock carb parts & jets and close up the airbox to stock size for starters

should perform good then

Great, thanks for your reply. But if im bringing it back to stock should the Arrow exhaust and K&N air filter be in the way?

with the airbox closed back to stock, the filter & exhaust shouldn't affect jetting

So this is my luck. Jets arrived. I've put everything back together and... It doesnt start. I get spark like every 10 or so kicks and neutral light does not come on. I dont know... 

K&N ok if you aren’t in a lot of fine dust but if you are ditch it. I have found it let’s too much fine dust in.

Neutral is hard to find when these washer like parts in clutch go bad. You can find neutral fine when not running and not well when running? If so replace the washer part. Probably will fix that.
