After looking at pics and such, it seems to be a TM33 but still can't get a deffinate. The carb does say Mikuni corp on it.

The bike is street legal but the PO put a dirt flat slide carb on it. Never specified the origins though. No other identification or part numbers just:

15
E8
The code is the carb ID - I can't tell you what that carb is but all of the TM33s and BST33s used on DRs had a code 14xx - I think the TM33s were always 14D0, and the BSTs had various XX's depending on the jetting and the country.

Ahh yes a 91. That would be a kick start with manual decomp.

Most of the time one rarely uses the year code to discribe their DR. S for street. E for Electric start. Nothing or DIRT for dirt.

The only time I think it is worth while to list the year code is if you have a 99 S. Cause you'd be riding yourself someDR350 "SEX"!!!

Carb leaking while off is likely the float or needle seat....which could also cause the idle issue.....

That's a score....Nice bike. I am looking for a set of frame guards (like yours) with no luck. Anybody have any ideas where to find them?

I read something about the swing arm on these bikes flexing quite a bit, can anyone give me the lo-down on this? I was wondering about swapping one with my 94 dr650.

Gosh, if they're so great and hard to find I should prolly hang on to them!

But if I ever find some polished aluminum ones to match the set on my RM I might be willing to swap these
for some other tid-bit of DR goodness!!!
