Default dr185 trouble

     

Hey guys i just picked up a 1979 dr185 enduro for 43 bucks today. compression is good but the darn thing does'nt run.. the kid who pick the bike up from said that hey messes around with some things on the left side cover.( i'm thinking he's messed with the timing?) and he also said that he replaced the carb.. i know the bike has spark.. i'm just wondering what the correct jetting adjustments are and timing is on this bike.. it seems like itll be alot of fun to ride around to give me kdx250 a break!! Thanks for all the help, and look forward to learning alot from yall!!

Aaron

Welcome to ATM, This is a good place to get helpful info. Post a picture of the new bike for positive I.D. but I'm fairly sure what you have is a DS 185. I don't think Suzuki made a DR in that small a displacement. The DS models are 2 strokes and were pretty bullet proof. There should be a mark on the stator plate to show the stock timing.
