Need help with 2000-2001 quadmaster 500 LT-A500

Recommended Posts

I am restoring two ATV for my bro-in-law and don't have the owners manual...I do have the service manual.

1- when I turn the key to the ON position and the motor NOT running or running....the thermostat light (red light in lower right corner of dash) is on right from the get go....is that normal? 

I suspect that should be off and comes one when the motor is overheating.

NOTE: the fan did come on after driving around a bit.

If that is not normal, what would cause that to be on as soon as the motor is started? Faulty temp/fan switch?


2 - what is the cheapest source for the various parts? I am looking for a speedo cable, and some various screws that hold the fuel tank cover and its side panels on as well as some of the small screw/bolts that hold the front fender.

also looking for some of the speedo gasket and dampers

DAMPER 34114-09F00 (looks like a gasket
DAMPER 34188-09F00 (looks like a rubber bushing and spacer)
Thanks in advance.

Why am I not getting responses? grrr

so the red light issue is fixed...used a multimeter set to continuity and I had continuity on a cold temp sender...bought a new one and the red light is gone...I haven't tested the new one in a pot of boiling water yet, but suspect it is fine.


finding that the suzuki parts are bloody expensive...ebay seems to be the cheapest source.
