That's exactly what it is. The person who removed the NSU did not remove the plunger and spring from the gear shaft. Since there was nothing to retain them they just fell out into the sump. Good...

Mine does that from time to time (23k miles). It's no big deal - just consider it top end lubrication. [emoji4]

Any DR350S (90-93) model CDI should work. SE model CDIs won't (dual pickups). And, FWIW, it will run with the CDI from the 90-93 dirt model but won't have a tachometer output. Those are relatively...

It's not an oil seal. "Sealed" bearings are designed to retain grease and keep dirt out but they won't retain oil under pressure. If that one did you wouldn't need an external seal retainer.

Sounds like you might have a DR350S wheel. I ran one on my first DR650 without issues although it was slightly more narrow than the OE 650 wheel.

The charging system and ignition systems of these bikes are completely separate. In fact, they will run quite happily with no charging system at all.

It is an idle FUEL screw. Backing it out makes the idle mixture richer. Every idle air screw I've ever seen was upstream of the slide (i.e. on the air filter side).
