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.

      Have a 2005 grizzly 660. Just recently started backfiring and showing incorrect speed. Lifted seat and messed with wire going to starter relay, it stops for a bit but seems to come back.
      I ended up pulling all the pins out of the connector for the relay and added new pin/connectors for all 4 wires. fixed it for a little bit but came back shortly after. This was a new starter relay i installed a few months ago. Anyone know if a bad starter relay would do this?

      So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.  
      Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. 
      It has a plow and a winch included!!!
      Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.  
      Stay tuned.

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
