DR350S starts only if I push it in a descent

Recommended Posts

Hallo guys,


I bought a '91 DR350S with 22000 km. I cleaned the carburator and I substitute all jets with original spare parts. I installed a new NGK spark plug too.


Now I have big difficulties to starts it with kickstarter, but it starts at the second try if I push it in a descent.


After the motorbike is started the motor run very well.


Do you have some advise for me?

Already done. The compression and the clearance are OK.

Yesterday evening I tuned better the height of float into the carburetor and something is changed. After 20 time, it strated...

As manual...

1. If the engine is cold, I pull the choke.

2. I depress the decompression lever and slowly kick the engine over until the decompression lever pops out

3. Lets the kick lever return back to the top of stroke and I apply a firm kick

In this face the throttle is always closed.

I already ordered a new NGK iridum spark plug because I think the problem is in the spark weak. Could be the HT ignition coil too.....
