You may have to remove the carb and clean all the jets and the internals of the carb. Remove the jets when cleaning. You can use a torch tip cleaner or the wire from a wire brush to clean the insides of the jets.

Smile twist tie

I've been using the wire from a twist tie for years.It bends easily so as not to do any damage.(Personal preference)

try checking to see that your choke cable is hooked into your carburator. I recently had this probelm and found out that the threads had gotten weak and the choke cable came out of the carburetor

1988 TRX 350 not running

I had a 1986 TRX 350....it quit running and I found a bad connection to the fuel pump as the problem. checking fuel filter and the pump is working would be good first steps......

I had a motor that ran one day and wouldn't start the next. The valves were tight. Adjusted the valves and it started and ran normally - actually had a little more power than before.
