King Quad 300 LTF Fuel Issues - Help?

Recommended Posts

I have a 2002 King Quad 300 that has been a fantastic product until now.  Starts well, idles well, upon acceleration, begins to run rough and won't to very high in RPM.  I assumed fuel starvation or bad plug as the issue.  New plug - no change.  Have checked petcock valve which seems ok.  Also checked pump, and thought that might be the issue.  Called around looking for the replacement pump part, and local store suggested they were pretty reliable, and doubted that was the issue.  Suggested a carb cleaning.  Took the easy way out, and opened up the top of the carb, removed the diaphragm, and put some Seafoam in...and let it sit for an hour.  Upon turning over, it wouldn't fire at all.  After a couple of tries, seemed to get a hydraulic lock.  So, pulled plug and turned over, spitting out a lot of fluid.  Re-installed plug, same response.  Now, getting gas leakage on to floor but haven't been able to trace it down exactly (suspect from carb but not from top where I re-installed the diaphragm).  Any ideas?  Thanks.

I agree that it sounds like a fuel starvation issue. Was the quad sitting at all for a while? Does it rev up ok?

It gets used regularly - a couple of weekends each month.  Prior to my work reviewed above, it started easily, would get going to 10-15mph, but then begin to sputter.  If I backed off the accelerator, it would stop missing and run as regular, but at the lower RPM.  thanks very much for you time on this.

Check your choke operation, air filter (make sure it's not clogged). It could be fuel not filling the bowl, carb jet issues, or even a coil issue on high rev. Can you reach the carb bowl and take that off and then check your float operation?

Finally gave up and took it to a dealer.  They rebuilt the carb and all is well.  Not sure what they found - cracked diaphragm?  Inside of carb was clean as a whistle, not problems with jets being clogged....$175 and all set.  Thanks for the advice, we will get it next time.

      This past spring, Jonathan worked on a 1991 QuadRunner 250 that came with the fuel pump removed. We didn't find good information about connecting it online, so we made a video.
      Below is the link to watch Jonathan describe the connections on the Suzuki fuel pump. This applies to both the Quadrunner and King Quad ATV models.
       
      Hope you find it informative!

      Hi everyone, I received a 98 Yamaha Timberwolf from my brother for free, and I'm working on getting it going. 
      I am having the following problem: 
      The engine is backfiring through the carb. 
      I have done the following to try and get the four wheeler running: 
      Rebuilt the carb and set the air screw to 1-1/4 turn out and the circlip at middle position 3
      Replaced the coil, because the cable was loose at the coil end
      Repaired the main ground, coming from the battery
      Replaced the ignition switch, because my brother couldn't find the key. New switch tested good
      Tested the kill switch and it tested good
      New coil tested goodfor both primary and secondary coils
      Pickup coil resistance is at 195, which is correct
      My source coil, is where I believe the issue is. The resistance is 310ohms, and it should be between 428-523ohms
      When I opened the stator housing, there was significant oil, which I have read is normal. Does it sound like I'm on the right track replacing the source coil? Could this be causing my backfiring issue? It looks like the source coil is part of the stator assembly, is this correct? 4BD-85510-20-00 STATOR ASSY

      I have a 96 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2x4 which up till yesterday was running ok. However out of the blue as I was going through the field it started missing if you tried to go over half throttle. It will start and run up to about half throttle and then it starts to miss. I changed to a new spark plug thinking it maybe had some carbon buildup but that didn't help. I put a new filter on it this spring as I do each spring but it seems more like something electrical in nature. Anny ideas? Thanks
