Barn Find! (95' LT-250/4WD)

Recommended Posts

I made my intro about a QuadRunner I was working on and found a multitude of problems. Most I fixed, but I'm thinking that I'll be making more trips to see the 90' LT-250/4WD. Age and needing regular attention is the reason. The owner, NOT being mechanically inclined, adds into the equation.

So, I deliver it and was offered, as payment, a 95' LT-250/4WD, with paper. It didn't run and had been sitting outside for last 12+ months. It was (basically) all there. This happened Saturday and this "Barn Find" came home to live out it's final years (I suspect).

Today I finally found time to look at her. Not a pretty sight. Rough life, many hrs....... MANY! Only 2399mi, but the speedo is disco'd. I just want to know if this will be worth pursuing. First things first, a really good cleaning. I hate working on dirty vehicles.

The battery actually took and held a charge! The carb was pulled, cleaned and the tank drained. Found a broken orange wire, dangling loose, near the carb. It was hot when the key was on and ended up connecting to a 10A fuse block. Well, I wonder why it didn't run???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm! 

Carb back on, fresh non-eth fuel, had to remove the air filter for this test (needs replacement), sprayed a little ether..... hit the starter, fired and died. Third time's a charm, she runs. I'll be going thru things as I can and questions will follow, in this thread.

 

WOOHOO!!!

I do have a few questions. If you have a thought, please share.

 1. Where is the best site to locate Suzi PN's? I have the Service Manual PDF, but I didn't find a PN for the air filter, as an example.

 2. And, what about parts? Do you goto local Suzi (dealer) or online 3rd parties? If 3rd party, whom?

 3. Speaking of parts. I will really need a rear plastic for this ride. The RR fender is all but gone. Are they still available?

RE: oil and the clutch. So, I also ride 70's KZ street bikes and know all about what oils need to be used in a wet clutch situation. This is with clutch plates and a cable that will disengage them. JASO oil needs to be used. NO FRICTION MODIFIERS! (as is used in newer oils, these days) I'm not familiar with the LT clutch. Is it a centrifugal clutch? Are there plates involved? Are there special oil needs for these older engines? Please, educate me.

What I normally do if i want to get factory part numbers, I try one of the online catalogs for suzuki and then I check the aftermarket sites like bikebandit. try this https://www.suzukipartshouse.com/oemparts/l/suz/50d0a4aaf870022c2c53496c/1995-quadrunner-lt-f250-parts

Then you can take the part number and do a google search to see if there is a less expensive version. So the air filter looks like a part # 13781-19B00 which on that site is $20.47

You can also punch that number into Amazon and you'll see a bunch of lesser expensive aftermarket filters available

Suzuki LT 250 Air Filter Amazon

 

So depends on what you want to spend and what parts you want, the older machines have aftermarket parts usually available. The plastics i would see if there are used ones on ebay or hunt around online to see what the best price is.

Yea, understood man. Thanks. I have a local Suzi dealer. I think I'll keep my local guys in business for a while longer... till I figure out where this thing is going. Still not running quite right. Running really rich. Need to pull the carb again.

 

I've had hit-n-miss experiences with online dealings. At least this way, local, I have someone to talk to (face-2-face or a call) if issues arise. The oils/air/plug and a few spring clamps cost me just a shade under 50. At least I'll not need to do the $24 air filter for a while. 😳

 

Yea, used plastics seem like hens teeth... guess this is right place/right time to get used on these. I'll keep my eyes open. I've seen the Meiyer (sp?) plastics, a bit to pricey for me.

Running realllllly rich. fouling the plug bad. The choke cable assy, where it meets the carb, is a sweeping plastic piece that screws into the carb body. This is just a cable guide, but sealed from outside air, right? On mine, this plastic piece is cracked thru/broken and letting air into the system. Mine is different, but shows as #35, here:

      Does anybody out there have a link to the PDF manual download for a 1988 Suzuki Quadrunner LTD 4 x 4? If not does anybody have this on digital file they could possibly email to me or guide me in any direction to where I don't have to buy it? Thank you very much everybody in advance! Have a great day!

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      I have a 2012 yfz450r. I loaned it out to a friend now it won't start. He ruined the battery..I topped all the fluids off and try to jump it and it shows the fuel light on yet I filled the tank 3/4 full. I'm wondering if that fuel light is indicating maybe a duel problem possibly a pump or? It turns over strong and I took it apart and can't ever hear the fuel pump kick on...any ideas fellas? I sure appreciate it!
