Suzuki DR 350 Won’t Start


I’m having trouble with my motorcycle, and asking for some help.

If you have any ideas, please leave a comment. You never know if it will help someone in the future.

I’m ready to ride and I’m bummed I can’t!


  1. Hello,

    Not a bike mechanic only a diesel mechanic. So you said, you getting spark. Is the spark plug wet and not too wet? If spark plug not wet spray starting fluid in spark hole or into carb when carb wide open. A gas engine needs gas,spark and timing. Did the bike run the last time good? How long did bike sit? If not getting fuel bad gas valve, needle in carb stuck it happened on my John Deere riding mower after sitting all winter. I use the gas sta-bil sometimes for long storage. Its better to just run the engine out of fuel. On my old Kawasaki KZ 650 I couldn’t do that cause pet-cock was vacuum controled. I wish I was there to see he problem too far away, I’m in Minnesota. I hope I didn’t confuse you sorry if I did.

    I read the article in ADV Moto wow some nice places in Montana to ride.I liked that trail on page 54 nice view. I been thinking of getting a Dual Sport bike like the DRZ 400S its too tall would have to lower it. The bike I have now I can’t go off-road its a big Victory Cross Country.

    Have you been in Frazer/Winter Park Colorado up in the Rollins Pass? I was here in 97′ with my pick-up truck.

    • Hi Al and thanks for the reply! Turns out it was the carb… one of the jets was not moving at all. Will do an update about it soon. But once I got that cleaned the bike started riding nicely!

      I’m glad you liked the article ๐Ÿ™‚ I haven’t done much exploring in Colorado, I think I will have to soon though! ๐Ÿ™‚
