Suzuki King Quad starting issue

Recommended Posts

I have a 2005 Suzuki King Quad 700 that has a weird no start issue.  Turn the key to "on", nothing, no display, no start, nothing.  Thought it was the battery so I pulled the battery out and charged it and tested it.  Battery tested good so I put it back in and the same thing.  Now whats odd is that if I hook up my lithium-ion jumpstarting unit to the battery, everything comes on as it should and machine will start.  Double checked all connections and everything seems ok and battery has 12.9 volts so it has enough juice where the machine should power up when the key is turned, but it does not unless jumper is hooked to it.  Any ideas?

Easy way to see if it's a ground take a jumper cable from neg post to a spot on the quad if it starts. Start with testing main wire (if there's more then one)

I also have the 2005 KQ 700.  I am not sure if this is the original grounding location, but this is where mine is.  Its right there in the batter area the yellow wire.

Actually now that I have posted that pick, would you mind posting a pick of yours including your battery tie down bracket.  apparently I should have one.

      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.

      Ok so just picked up an 02 ds 650 and the guy said he couldn't get it to start. He had a shop put new shims in it and I had them checked and they were ok now things I've done is new plugs even though guy had just put new plugs in it.. got new carb 42mm just like the one that was on it.. bought new intake manifold because the one that was on it someone got way to tweaked out and ported the shit out of it excuse my language but yeah so installed new intake manifold and it just won't start like its not getting enough fuel.  Timing seems to be right it does fire every now and again but just barely.. did a compression test today and it was at 90psi.. i know thats low but don't know where I'm losing compression.. valves we at .06 and .07 when checked im lost ive tried everything I know and can't figure it out

      Hello eeveryone,
      Just picked up an 86 Suzuki LT185 for my daughter, and she's complaining that it bounces so bad over bumps that it nearly throws her off the quad. I have the tire pressures some where around 3 psi. I really can't go any lower than that. I noticed that there isn't anything in the aftermarket world for shocks and springs for this quad. I am wondering what others are doing to soften up the ride. Also wondering if there's a way to fabricate a rear shock, since there isn't one.  I appreciate your feedback.
      Thanks!
