Outlander 450 not charging? Check this first.

Recommended Posts

I have found a defect in Outlander 450's where a stator 3 phase wire chafes between the frame and rear body module (plastic) at the fuel pump cap area.  Before you go crazy and open the engine cover up to replace the stator, check the 3 phase wires first.  The stators on these bikes are very well made.  The 3 phase wires between the regulator and stator, unfortunately, were not thoughtfully routed.  What happens is the wires chafe, and at least one loses all its insulation and rubs against the metal frame, shorting it out.  Hopefully this will save someone hundreds of dollars in stealership fees.

      Does anyone make aftermarket engine parts for the Suzuki Quadsport LT-Z50?
      Pistons, Valves, etc...?
      I have found rings and complete gasket sets.... I need an oversize piston kit and valves..
      One company is selling a piston, but upon further inspection it is an LT50 piston that they are saying is for the 2006 Suzuki Quadsport LT-Z50. Yet the LT50 Piston is not interchangeable with the LT-Z50 according to the pistons listed by Suzuki.
      Any help would be appreciated

      I just bought this thing and got the carb all cleaned today and it was running like a champ. There was a spare hot wire hanging down that was not hooked up to anything. I found it when I took all the covers off and did the carb work. Unfortunately I forgot it as well when I fired her up after cleaning and replacing the carb. While I was running her, the wire was lying across the exhaust pipe. The exhaust got hot, melted the insulation and next thing I know I see sparks flying everywhere Bike immediately shut down and all lights went off. I have nothing on the console now when I turn the key over. I fear I have fried my ECU. I found one fuse back by the box, a 30 amp, but it was good. Are there any other fuses on these things? Is there a way to test the ECU? Could it be the rectifier or voltage regulator?

      The clutch cover goes on and fits, but the little L chapped arm that has gear slots is concerning me.  It appears it goes to wear the clutch adjust bolts are on the cover. 
      Is there a specific way to tell how it mounts on the gears in relationship with the basket?
      I don't want to deal it up unless it's right
