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.

Fuel/air screw set properly? 

Have you checked the spark ? 

Maybe  maybe a fresh plug?

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.

That should be enough.   The only thing I really have left is the pick up coil?

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???

      So I bought an 88 qaudracer real nice bike fired up 2-3 kick everytime. When I bought it the brake calipers were not on the bike the guy gave them to me In a box with parts to rebuild. So I HAVnt ever really rode the bike except a quick run testing gears when I bought and I started it and drove in yard not getting out of 3rd due to no brakes. I put it in garage turned it off. The following weekend I put brakes on and go to kick it and it’s seized. I did put it in high gear and rocked it back and forth and got it to kick a couple times. But has seized back up. Any ideas??? Could it be a kicker malfunction??

      Hey all,
      It's been a while since I posted.  Fan trouble and the replacement I sourced on amazon is still working great on my 2005 Suzuki KQ700.
      Unfortunately this year I lost my outdoor best friend.  He's that go to guy for everything … the day run, may walleye opener, last minute hey my boat's at work get your a$$ over here with your rod and let's go kinda buddy.   I bought the quad last year in March and with him gave it the once over and prepped it for fall hunting season, but cancer took him before we could enjoy this new aspect of outdoor life.  We planned an October trip into the bush with our quads guns and tent trailer.   It never happened.   A tribute to our fallen and lost.... But in their memory take the opportunity to grasp every minute of the outdoors you can, life is short... you can sleep at the end...
      I've curious what everyone has been doing to prep for the spring season.  I mounted my battery and the quad started up straight and easy, just powered it up once or twice to juice the injectors and it fired up after a couple of seconds.  I let it run, confirmed fan started, checked charge voltage.  all good. I did all my oils in the fall to make sure no water was present anywhere so skipped that this spring.
      So what have I done over the winter to prep for quadding?  I've been researching.  This year I am going to cross over quading with brook trout fishing.  So I have been pouring over my old maps from my youth, google maps... looking for those faint markings of trails I can't travel in my F150 (well not yet, paint still looks pretty good ).

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you

      Just picked up my new quad from dealership. Drove it onto truck felt for brush guard to touch front of bed. There isn't one.  Asked dealer. Says they don't come with one have to order it. They looked it up not available for at least 30 to 90 days. Winch mounting plate either. Been riding suzuki's since 1973. So i guess it will have to sit in garage till accessories are available. This is my fourth Suzuki ATV they all came with brush guards. Can't even imagine the damage you could get without it.
