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 bought a roughish Honda rancher TRX350TM3 and I am having trouble locating the vin number - I would like know year and specs as is it rough , it runs but has multiple little issues ( choke cable seems frozen , carb has sticky or ill adjusted float and leaks gas from bottom of carb , shut off valve needs new o-ring to stop leaking , ect)  just age and lack of maintenance issues , but I need to know what it is to get correct specs … I was told there would be a tag on front end of frame but I don't see one . Any help would be greatly appreciated .

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀
