2000 Suzuki Quadmaster 500 four wheel drive pops out of gear

3 posts in this topic

When my atv is put in 4 wheel, it makes some growling noises and then kicks itself out of gear. Has anyone had the front end apart with a similar problem?

yes i have. i have the exact same machine. you will most likely need a complete front diff rebuild. if it pops out of 4x4 then either the lock up sprague or the detent ball and spring aren't working. At any case I highly recommend pulling the diff out and pulling it apart before you have a catastophic failure. I left mine to long and it cost me a complete front end. Send me a comment if you need any extra help. I would purchase a factory manual for the machine. i have both and the clymer one tells you squat for info.

your friendly neighbourhood mechanic.

A bent shift fork may be a possibility too, but if you only have the problem when you shift into 4wd, gearhead may be right. Good luck.

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?

      Blows out black smoke when you rev it up how do you adjust the carb?

      I can get about 30 mph (speed) Took the filter off still the same. Took the carb off all the jets look good. All new gas. What else could I look at?

      Hello, i recently bought a 2000 Suzuki LTF500 semi-automatic. I was riding it and found out that its hard to shift into 3rd gear and above. could it be because of the tuning because the rpm might be to high, cuz in neutral it would sometimes rev high by itself? or could it be something in the trany?
      Also it shifts easily when off

      Hey all,
      I'm new to this site and to CanAm/Bombardier atv's. I purchased this quad local to my area and shortly after started noticing a knocking noise from the bottom end, which I've been told may need a rebuild.
      The atv is complete, but I'm now looking to part it out, unless someone knows where I can get the bottom end rebuilt for a decent price.
      I can take some pics of the quad and upload. If you need parts off of it, let me know and make me an offer.
