    Seeking 1994 Suzuki DR350SE Carburetor Replacement

    2007 Suzuki DR-Z400S Fuel Delivery Issue/cutting out

    I removed the piece and a ton of pressure released. It seems the piece has failed, I will have to drive it to be sure, but I think that was it.
  4. So this has been an abnoxious one, I bought this bike about 8 months ago and it has always run perfectly, about a month and a half ago I installed the IMS 4 gallon tank and tusk billet cap and it has continued to run perfectly until less than a week ago. Now it will start to starve for fuel every 5 min or so unless I loosen the cap to relieve tank pressure. It seems to do fine if I driving backroads at a sub 30mph pace, but if I get on the highway it quickly build pressure and cuts out. The tank has always built pressure when I was riding, and hissed viciously when i refueled but had no fuel delivery issues until less than a week ago, I could nearly drain the tank without opening it, and it would never cut out. Could the vacuum assisted petcock have possibly worn out? Is it normal for the tank to build pressure? I was under the impression that the fuel cap would relieve all pressure. So far I have checked the vacuum line over and over, taken apart the tusk fuel cap and blasted the parts with hot water, removed fuel filter, then installed it again when I noticed no difference. The bike noticeably regains power while I'm driving and I loosen the cap.

    No splits of hard spots, it was in good straight.

    It has the original petcock and it works fine, even if I use prime to prefill the bowl it still has the issue immediately. I removed the filter to test that already, it made no difference. I have my focus on possibly replacing the petcock and intake boot

    The diaphram looked great when I cleaned the carb.

    Yes sir I did
  9. I have cleaned the carburetor, replaced ignition coil, replaced spark plug, drained fuel and put in fresh, installed new intake manifold, installed fuel filter, cleaned tank, changed and oiled air filter, changed battery, adjusted air/fuel ratios and more I'm sure I'm forgetting. But my 1994 DR350 continues to idle extremely rough and most of the time it will only stay running if in full choke. I could keep buying kits and parts but I'm very interested in simply replacing the carb completely as it seems someone has messed with it before. The ones online are insanely expensive, so if someone could offer a decent price for one I would be very grateful. The bike ran perfect when I bought it and I rode it extensively, this issue happened two days after I sold it to my brother, OF COURSE!!! So now I feel guilty and have been working at it for days and nothing is making the slightest difference. Please help, riding season is just starting in my area and I don't want my brother to miss out.
  10. Everyone provided great solutions, thank you all so much! I will sort through them and find the cheapest (; thanks again!
  11. Thanks for the part number, sadly a replacement is nearly 200$ though. Does anyone know of a similar carb from another bike that may work?
  12. So after a lot of cleaning I was eventually able to get my suzuki dr100 to run, but the bike wont seem to run unless I'm pulling the throttle or leave the choke atleast halfway on. So after cleaning it a dozen times, I installed an inline fuel filter, cleaned the tank, fuel selector and thoroughly cleaned the carb and pilot jet especially, I had the same issues again. There are no rebuilt kits availible for this bike that I can tell, there are most likely defects with a few of the parts in the carb, I already had to solder a hole in the float, so I know other parts could have similar issues. So in short, does anyone know of a carb that would easily replace the one on this bike? I can't seem to find a direct replacement at all or any parts. Thanks in advance.

    1982 SP125 Replacement Carburetor

    On my 1982 Suzuki SP125 I used the new carb method and upgraded my intake flange but I'm having trouble finding the correct fuel/air fixture. Does anyone know what it should be? I used the 2003 DRZ 125 carb as suggested. I installed a mikuni 26mm intake flange as well to fit the bigger carb.
