Did this just start happening or did it sit for while? Sounds carb related.

Just started happening. Unfortunatly I hadn't checked my air filter for while, cleaned it and right after it started acting up. Not sure if that would be related?

Could be the carb sucked in some of the dust and clogged the jets. I would remove and clean the carb.

I would clean the carb first because of what @mikeexplorer said.  then try adjusting the idle screw, then the air mixture screw if none else works.  Wouldn't hurt to check the valve clearance too..but I would work on the carb first.  Does your bike bog down at any time when you push it hard or want to die right after letting off the throttle?  If thats the case, I think it would be running too lean- (mixture screw adjustment)

oh, and how does it start in cold weather?

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      I am working on a friends 2006 Suzuki LT-Z50 that they purchased not running. I took apart the carb to rebuild it and someone had already been in there... They really destroyed the Air/Fuel Mixture opening in the body of the carb.. It is in no way repairable.
      I have not been able to find an aftermarket carb to fit this model.
      Does anyone know if an aftermarket carb is available?
      Thanks for any help.
