2000 Suz QRunner 500 4x4

Recommended Posts



I bought this baby yesterday, wasn't running - but a carb clean and new battery brought her to life and she sounds and drives like a beast.  Ugly and beat up plastics but w/e


So, the carb was nasty - like green buildup and every port possible and was clogged.  Where else should I look to clean or change fluids?  Also, anyone have the lt f500f SRV manual?  I did not see it in the SUZ forum for manuals.  What causes green buildup in carbs?  I am new to ATV's, but have at least dabbled in doing all my own auto maintenance and am trying to get the kick in the right direction as to what to service next before i ride her full time.

I do know that there is an oil leak that appears to be from the clutch cover gasket but will get under and clean it all up to confirm exactly where its leaking from.

Additional Info,


I just checked the carb and it appears to be leaking fuel from the pilot screw just forward of the float bowl.  I did not mess with this screw when I disassembled the carb.

Any thoughts?

The green is old gas that has gelled up over time.

Get a good carb rebuild kit for it. You need a manual for the rebuild. If you can't find one for free, it is worth buying it.

      A little bit of click bait there with the title because in the grand scheme of things, what the hell does a virus have to do with your ATV except maybe give you a little more time to ride if you are out of work or school!
      In all seriousness, how's everyone doing? Here in lower NY, its getting a little crazy...
      Schools are closed all week, might be longer as they issued every grade that didn't have one, a chromebook and google classroom (preparing for remote learning) Some stores are out of things like disinfecting wipes, sprays, rubbing alcohol, tylenol, toilet paper, pasta, and other basic necessities. (panic buying in full force) Many people (including myself) are working from home, no more travel for the next few weeks. Interesting times and I hope no one gets sick! Stay healthy!

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!

      Good morning!
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4X4 and I need to rebuild the carb. I have the dual-cable throttle model and I'm having a terrible time finding the correct kit for it. I'm not opposed to replacing it, but the only ones I'm seeing do not have the dual cable throttle system. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Jay in WI
      P.S. I can send pictures if necessary.

      Let's just say there was a little fire on the old Griz and the carburetor didn't do too well. Is there an aftermarket carb on the market or do I have to go Yamaha to get this?
      Thanks in advance
