I have a persistant problem with my DR350SEX since it has been laid up for a while. It runs rough below 4000 revs but is absolutely fine from 4000 revs upwards.

So I took the carb from my SEW model (identical) and put it on the SEX and then it ran fine so I stripped the SEX carb and cleaned it thoroughly but the problem persists.

I remember some years ago hearing about problems with these carbs concerning the 'throttle position sensor'.

Has anyone had a similar problem, any advise?

cheers, Bob.

I have an SEX and im sure you`ll find the sensor works at full throttle only ,if you open up the twist grip and watch the rhs side of the carb where the sensor is the lever only touches the switch at full throttle and connects to the cdi unit
Make sure all jets and holes in the carb are clear,the float height is set correct,check the diaphram for splits,you can also inspect the ht lead in case its breaking down at high rpm
If the engine is running fine above 4k then thats the main jet thats ok,sorry i cant be of more help

Newbie Question, do I need both a decompression and throttle cable...?

I have a '96 DR350 street legal (is that the SE model?) and I'd like to get a spare throttle cable in case mine breaks while on the road.

Do I need both the throttle cable and the decompression cable or do I only need the throttle cable....?

What are the part numbers I need for the required cables...?

Thanks for helping this newb out!

No trouble here...I've got a Clarke tank and Tusk D-Flex Handguards/Spoilers Black/Black busters with Tusk T-10 Aluminum Handlebar CR Mid Bend Black.

Hope this helps!

Gregory Bender

Sounds like a classic case of gummed up carb. I'd try cleaning it again. Seafoam works great. Make sure you get every tiny little nook and cranny thoroughly cleaned out. When I bought my bike it had been sitting for two years and wouldn't start. I took the carb off and cleaned it and it started right up, but ran a little rough. I took the carb off again and cleaned a little more thoroughly and it ran better, but not perfect. Took the carb off again and completely disassembled it, cleaned even more thoroughly - removed jets and soaked in Seafoam, removed and cleaned the needle valve, replaced o-rings, reassembled and checked float height. Ran perfect after that. I've put 5k+ miles on it since then with no problems.

It's a tiny island, there isn't anything far enough away that a horse wouldn't do the trick!

According to the parts fiche at Ronayers.com the part number for your throttle cable is: 58300-14E00
The throttle cable is a dual-cable setup. I'm not sure about a decomp cable for you bike - it wasn't shown in the parts fiche handlebar diagram that shows the clutch & throttle cables. I have a dirt model and I think the decomp may be different than the SE model.
