1998 Suzuki King Quad ignition

Recommended Posts

Hi people, I'm having an issue with my 1998 King Quad, when key is in pos. 1(start) no power,nothing same in pos 2(lights) when starting with recoil pos1 it acts like it's dieseling, switch to pos 2 runs perfect? I'm guessing new switch? any other possibilities? thanks for any feedback. SS

You  can  check the ignition switch with a meter  to  see  what it is doing ,  but I  would suspect it is faulty. Possibly  has corrosion  in it. There is a possibility  of a  loose wire   or connection , but  I think  you  are right suspecting a  new ignition switch is in  order.

Thanks for the input, did order new switch from Caitric got it yesterday and changed out. However the new one is mis manufactured as it has to long of a sleeve and not enough thread length to allow tightening down securely. Guess that's why it was so cheap🙄 So since I had the old one out, cleaned all the contacts, new dielectric grease, metered all connections and it looked good, so plugged it in and it fired right up everything working. Time to go mow!

      having an issue with the unit when running under a load up a hill or in high gear, seems like the belt is slipping, there is a clapping sound coming from the primary clutch like it releases and snaps back in. i don't think I should have a noise like that. this is a friends unit and he has already replaced the primary twice with the same result.
      not sure where to look next

      My king quad 700 runs rough when cold then won't start some times but not often when it's hot. And occasionally smoke's a lot when it's cold I'm guessing that's rings but I'm worried unless it's causing the other problems
      All help is appreciated thanks

      Has anyone else had an issue on older king quads where the oil would leak from the top of the head (due to a failed gasket) and drip onto the hot exhaust? Mine got so hot one time it caught fire. Just wondering if this is a common issue, as I've seen the same thing happen on multiple bikes that were the same model.

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.
