Sounds like the carb needs cleaning.
I have a pair of brand new in the Yamaha package side covers in black that I came across a few years ago and thought I might need someday... but then that project bike got completely redesigned... so they're just spares for my other DT50's now... They can be painted. They fit the US DT50's... water cooled with a "17W" prefix on the engine number. (Not sure what country you're from and some other countries have very different DT50 models).
You can keep your eyes open on ebay and might find some used ones there... they are kind of hard to find and usually expensive when you do. I'd sell the ones I have if you want them but they weren't cheap... I'd have to look but I think it was around $120 for the pair.
Here's a used set in white on ebay:
Saw a blue one for $75 too... just one side... not both. They are kind of rare. But if you're patient you might find a set for a good price.
P.S. Post up some pictures when you can! Would love to see your DT50!
