Starting Problem with Praire 300 4x4

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

New to the form but have gotten lots of information so it was time to sign up.

I live in NJ and have 3 ATV's. one Suzuki 400 Eiger 4x4 and  a Honda recon 250. Use them on my farm and take them into a sand pit by me and have a blast with them.

I have my cousins Kawasaki Prairie 300 4x4. (I believe its a 2000?) It's been sitting for 3 years and he wanted to get it running for use on his horse farm to haul hay and feed during the winter. I'm having problems getting it to start. Here's what I done so far:

Replaced fuel tank due to cracked top and leaking with used one.

Replaced fuel lines from tank to shutoff and carb

Replaced carb with new. Old one was corroded in the bowel.

Replaced Battery

Getting spark on plug but still will not turn over. I have sprayed starting fluid into carb but still will not even attempt to kick over. It just cranks.

If I pull start, I feel good compression

All suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jeff

I would still do a compression test. Did it have any issues before it sat for 3 years? Have you changed the oil? Is there any moisture in the cylinders when you pull the plug?

I wonder if the spark isn't hot enough, maybe look into is the CDI box.

Moved topic to Kawasaki forum.

      I rebuild my front diff but can't find the torque spec for the pinion nut for my 1998 500 quadrunner. It had timkin bearings so I know the preload needs to be correct not to overheat or be too loose and take it out again. Does anyone know what the correct torque is.
      Thanks

      Hi everybody!
      Just got an 86 TRX 250, not running for past 5 years.
      Currently with battery hooked up there no power. I checked the fuses. Will go meter the off/run/off switch and ignition switch tonight.
      I'm, looking for a decent wiring diagram or a copy of the service manual or ohm specs for coils/stators. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks.
