    Thanks gents, I will broaden my search! I was apparently misinformed. Take care, Jack

    1999 DR350SE CDI?

    Thanks but the 93 won't work on a 99 model. Been watching ebay for a couple of months, just haven't found one that'll work on my bike yet. Jack

    1999 DR350SE CDI?

    Hey y'all, The CDI on my 1999 DR350SE is giving me trouble and I'm looking for a replacement. Any suggestions? I bought an aftermarket one from regulatorrectifier but it didn't work. I posted an ad in the TT classifieds and emailed Jesse too. Any help greatly appreciated. I'd hate to not be able to get it running again, it's served me well and I love this bike! Thanks, Jack

    So there are several things you need to check. Spark plug condition? If not sure replace it, they are cheap. Air filter clean? If not clean it. Carb clean? Lots of posts about how to clean flat slide carb bowl and jets. Carb jetted correctly? Jesse at Kientech engineering can help you with info about that. Fuel flowing freely? Disconnect fuel line from carb and run it into something to make sure the petcock screen isn't clogged. While you're at it if it has the stock petcock leave it set to PRI while trying to start the bike. Last but quite possibly the problem-check the valve clearances. Also plenty of info on TT about how to do that. If they have gotten tight it can be hard to start. Good luck!

    Need more details please. Other than not staying running at idle how does it run when you bump start it? If it runs well it may be as simple as the idle is adjusted too low. What do you mean when you say it's hard to kick start? Is it physically hard to kick over, or does it kick over okay but hard to get it to start?

    help with trip to kentucky

    The weather should be fine, sometimes a little wet that time of year but otherwise fine. The only place in Ky I've ridden is Turkey Bay OHV area in Land Between the Lakes national recreation area. Nice place to ride but not really enough trails for 3 days. Hopefully someone else will add other suggestions. Good luck, Jack

    People/places to ride near Clarksville tn

    No, I've never ridden those areas. Once my son got comfortable on a bike we spent most of our time locally on MX tracks. Our trail riding at that point was pretty much limited to going to different OHV areas for short vacations. Finger Lakes in Columbia Missouri was a favorite, Moonrocks out in Nevada was good, BLM land in the Sierra Nevada range was fantastic. I travelled a lot in those days so we rode all over. He lives in Kansas now so I go up there to visit and we ride around there. Jack

    1996 DR350SE electrical system acting up

    I had a similar problem once, turned out to be the main fuse. Had too much dielectric grease on it I guess. Cleaned it up and haven't had the problem happen again.

    suzuki dr350

    The SE is the street legal electric start version, I think it came out in 1995. If yours is a dirt only model it won't have electric start. Both have an automatic decompression built in. I believe it was 1994 when that was introduced. Without decompression it would get harder to kick, not just hard to start.

    The Turkey Bay riding area at Land Between the Lakes. There is a large open flat area near where you park that you can teach him to ride in. Plus plenty of trails once he gets the hang of it. Plenty are easy enough for a new rider. My son's grown now and we still ride together, on and off road. But I sure do miss those first few years after he learned to ride! Man that was fun, took a lot of patience but it was worth it. Good luck, Jack

    1999 DR350se help

    I also have a '99 DR350SE. I've had two earlier models of the DR350S, an '02 DRZ400S, a DR650, an XL250R and an XL350R. My current DR350 is my favorite dual sport so far. I've done a few mods to it, plan to do more this winter. My DRZ400 had almost every mod available done. The DR350 doesn't have the power of the DRZ400 but is more comfortable and easier to ride, especially for a passenger. The LONG throttle throw makes it seem less powerful than it is. You really have to twist the throttle a long way to get into the meat of the power. We carry ours on a receiver hitch motorcycle carrier on the back of our motorhome and use it as our transportation when camping. I tried one of the aluminum carriers, didn't like it at all. It flexed way too much. I now use a steel carrier and have driven probably 8000 miles with this setup so far and like it alot better. Once you get it running reliably I think you'll be happy with it. If not let me know, I could always use another one. BTW I agree with replacing the carb with one from Jessie as the best way to cure carb problems and get a significant performance improvement. The inline filter is also a good idea, your tank may well have rust in it and that will play hob with how the bike runs. Jessie at kientech is the first place I'd go for most stuff. I don't think he does his own head work though. I think he uses Millenium Technologies or Thumper Racing. Thumper Racing http://www.thumperracing.net/ have big bore kits and will do the head work too. Procycle https://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr350.html has a lot of stuff, including a nice quick throw throttle tube. And finally here is an EXTENSIVE thread on another forum about DR350s http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=230695 Take care, Jack
