i can’t kick mine over at ALL unless the decompression lever engaged.. just saying.. haha

Let me share a little secret with you , if your out in the woods with your 300 and the battery goes low and won't turn the engine over , some times instead of kicking it ,  you engage the decompression lever and hit the start button and if your bike starts easily ,  the little bit of battery voltage will turn the engine over it will fire right up , you only get a quick try at it , then have to engage the lever again

not sure if that will work on your bike.... with a 300 you reach down and flip that little lever up, on yours the kick starter cable linkage engages the decomp lever when you go to kick it over.

yes bro, i know yours it's a 350....by the pics and details in the post ... i have one myself. it should be listed in my sig. 86 trx350 fourtrax, in other words .... i have never tried that low battery start decomp trick on a 350 MINE, so i don't know if it would work on any of them, but it will work on a 300, i know because i have two 300 fwd bikes, your decompression assist is kick starter operated, a 300 is not.

and this engine was the one hard to crank over ? and it's not locked up correct ? if you look here pic  the decomp isn't hooked up, so if it's not locked up, this would be the reason it's hard to crank over.... raise that spring loaded lever just below the cable stay (hook) and try it again, just make sure, that rag in the intake doesn't get sucked in.

I don’t have a picture. The new engine is dropped off and he said it’s definitely the correct engine. And I have an 2 up seat now for it .
