2001 King Quad 300, carb issues

Recommended Posts

Hi all, new to the forum, looking forward to getting some help/advice on maintaining an 18 yr old atv!  So my King Quad 300, recently started running really rough (otherwise ok til this point) at anything more than idle.  After started, choke on/off, doesn't seem to matter, it shutters (Not sure how else to explain it) really bad when given throttle.  I can let the engine run for several minutes, but this never improves.  

Fuel pump checks out ok, and I don't see any gas in the fuel pump vacuum line.  I am a novice on a carburetor, but I need to see what's going on, so after taking it apart, I have a question about this plastic part with an o-ring that is above the jet needle.  Appears as if someone rebuilt this carb, because it is extremely clean...so I am wondering if this plastic part looks to be typical for this carb...or not.  Thanks in advance for the help!

Welcome to Quadcrazy! I’ve attached a diagram to help you out.  That should pretty much explain things.   It may not be your exact carb but I can look that up for you in the mean time.

This is a thread I will follow with interest as I too have recently bought a King Quad 300 and it is in need of some attention due to rough running.  I will be stripping the carb out in due course and cleaning in an ultrasonic cleaner so will let you know how I get on as well (after sorting out another quad)

Yes That’s great.  Just take your time and make sure you do a thorough job.   I like to use a cheap white pilllow case on my work bench before I get into one. It helps to see any parts as well as the dirt that comes out.  I buy the cheap ones a two pack for $2 bucks at them cheap stores like odd lot or something.   

I also like to use a can of compressed air to blow everything out.  Staples or any office supply place has them.

Check the charging system. At idle you should see no more than 14.5 volts. Typically the voltage should read about 14.5 volts at 2500 rpm or so, lower at idle. An over charge condition can seem like carburetor issues sometimes. Rule this out first, it will save lots of head scratching. If you don't have a volt meter just unplug the voltage regulator and see if your issues go away,quick and free to check.

Thank you so much for all of the info, the document on the carb breakdown has my exact one included, so thank you!  And the post regarding voltage is interesting...mainly because, my battery is dead, an I am starting it with and have my charger connected to it until the battery is replaced.  Surely is is getting a higher voltage...i will check it out.

So, verified that all parts are in the carb correctly, cleaned, and reassemble/installed.  Fired it up again with the same chugging sound...smoothes out a little at idle.  I did remove the charger once started, but same result both ways.  I will try to attach a video of the sound.

Just put a fresh plug in, no change.  I am guessing that the adjustments are fine because it was running good then this issue came up when I was riding it.  I do recall it happening, then it ran fine...then reverted back, and hasn't been the same since.

The spark is consistent...not a big spark by any means but white and very visible.

So, going back through the things I need again to make her run...spark-good, fuel-good...but decided to check it again... bingo!  At idle, the fuel pump works fine (almost seems like too much fuel), but when given throttle, the fuel flow stops.  Vacuum line going to pump is good, and the diaphragm in the carb looked good...so now where???

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. 
       
      Today after 1 hour  My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward.  Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside.   But it worked fine right before the wash.
       
      Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached.  Is it 90 or 110ccs?
      No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order.
      My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it.
