Question about 2001 Suzuki DR 200 SE
If old gas sat in the carb. for more than a month it starts to dry up. As it drys up it leaves behind a varnish like film that stops up some very small ports and pin holes inside a motorcycle carburetor. It is also very hard to get out. You can try this before you pull the carb. for a full cleaning. Use a product called Seafoam, get as much gas out of the carb.s as you can. use a turkey baster and force the seafoam into your carb. fuel line that you take loose from the fuel tank. Let that set for say 1 or 2 days. then hook up the fueltank with a mix of good gas and seafoam, (not a lot but enough to start it up. Move the cycle outside as the seafoam will make a lot of smoke if it does start up. If that does not clear up the problem you may have to pull the carb. and remove the blows to clean the inside. If you have to do that do not DO NOT MESS with any adjustment screws. Just take the carb. bowl off. Do not mix up any internal parts. It is best to work on a large sheet so if you drop a small part you can find it, you do not want to be missing some tiny spring or screw. Hope this Helps Fix Ya Up..

It definately sounds like a pilot circuit in the carb is plugged up.. you must thoroughly clean the entire carb.
This requires removing all jets and running a small wire through all orifices, spraying them with a quality carb cleaner (Berrymans B12 is among the best) and blowing them out with compressed air until all ports flow free. Also check your pitcock, and drain and flush your tank to rid any debris.
Good luck, i hope this helps.
