Yeah I got it done professionally and no it ran but not good I played with the valves tonight got it to run a bit but wouldn't idle I'm thinking it has to do with my valves so I'm going to get them done professionally done and go from there

My first guess is carb related. Good luck with it!

maybe it flooded and was hydro-locked?  That's what my sportsman did when I bypassed the fuel pump...  overflowed and hydro-locked the engine while sitting..

It turns over runs well only when choke is on but does not idle I think it's time for a new carb and get my valves looked at as I think they are off as well

I would clean the carb first.  Fairly easy to do and just because some pro did it doesnt mean he didnt screw it up

If it is only staying running with the choke on, the slow speed pilot jet is plugged. Sounds like this so called "professional" didn't clean it thoroughly or correctly. 

Also if it's dumping that much fuel into the cylinder the float is either sticking or set at the incorrect level.

So it idles very well but has no top end bought another carb kit did that new diaghram for my fuel pump no more excessive fuel but now have no top end my one top valve is ticking I did the valves at .003 intake and .007 is that correct for the 92 suzuki king quad 300

Try to adjust the air/fuel mixture screw. What’s it set at now ?

valve clearance should be 0.03 mm Intake and 0.17 mm exhaust based off a similar year same engine size manual.

Oh okay...thanks for that and air to fuel is set at 2 5/8

Try a 1-3/4 turns as a starting point and go out to 2-3/4 if needed as the bikes running.

Adjustments should only be made with the air filter installed and cover on as if the bike was ready to ride.  

As it’s running the rpms should climb as you adjust.   The higher the rpm the better.  As soon as the rpms start to drop STOP right there and go back a slight bit.  If the bike idles high lower the idle screw a little bit and you should be set.

When doing your valves you put it to top dead center then do your valve clearance correct? That's how I seen it done in the vedio on YouTube lol

Your awesome thanks so much man I do everything myself usually I rebuilt the whole engine but this damn carb has been hell

Check to see if you have a vacuum operated fuel petcock and the fuel pump diaphragm. A leak in either or both of the diaphragms will let fuel by pass the carb and go into the engine. They will make you think you have a bad carb.  If have excessive fuel in the cylinder be sure to check you oil for fuel too.

Yes TDC the cylinder on a combustion stroke. 

You will see on all my post regarding carbs. They are a pain in the ass, frustrating and can make you bat shit crazy! Take a step back and breathe.  It gets dialed in sooner or later. A lot of the times it’s later ! But you will figure it out.  And all adjustments need to be done with the air box and filters all assembled.  I see all the time people make adjustments with the air filter or air box cover off,  take the bike for a ride and boom then when they put the air box back together it’s not right ??? It has to be adjusted as of it were ready to ride .

If you're getting that much fuel ,float is stuck down or out of adjustment ! Another problem could be dirt under fuel inlet valve or worn out . Is it gravity fed on this model or does it have a fuel pump ?? If it has a fuel pump could also have a hole in the engine side diaphragm of pump !!

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      I recently got a 98 warrior 350 that 'needed the carb adjusted' but the reality is it has no spark. I have a new spark plug, plug wire, ignition coil, battery, and cdi box. I checked continuity and took apart and inspected the starter/kill/light switch on the handle bar, and it all looks brand new and checked out. The key switch seems to be working properly, as when off, nothing works, but when switched on, lights and electric starter button work. It turns over fine, and as I just stated, all the lights work. I took all the plastics off and traced all the wires, and only one had a small cut in it, but it was only through the rubber sheathing, not the wire itself (the blue one coming from the stator). I cleaned some grounds, made sure both relays work, and still nothing. I pulled the stator cover and looked at the stator itself, and it looks great. No broken wires or connectors or anything. Still, no spark. I'm at a loss. Where do I go next? Any help is appreciated.

      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

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      I wanted to share an experience and a fix.
      Headed out was following a pole line, was looking for a cross track that may take me to this speckle trout looking spot on a creek.  All paths and semi paths... failed.  Second objective was to reach a speckle trout lake that has been recently stocked... followed 1 trail to dead end, followed second trail to dead end.... while investigating options on foot and the quad idling it died.
       
      It wouldn't start.  eventually it did... and when it did … it was essentially a pinned idle.  activating the throttle did seem to speed it up but it wouldn't knock out of the racing idle.  couldn't put it in gear at that idle speed.  got towed out.
      when I first got the quad, I ran it off a trail and buried it pretty good in the soft snow... eventually winched out.  It wouldn't start.  eventually did and it was fast idling.  not as fast as this last time. but still fast.  it eventually seemed to settle and I got it in gear and by the time I was back to the truck was acting ok.  chalked it up to the bike being at a bad angle in the snow.
      My investigation last year lead to the throttle position sensor TPS.  how to jumper the diag block to see the sensor position on the display,.  I focused on this nearly sure it was a detuned sensor or broken sensor again this time.
       
      I tore down the front plastic and stuck my head into the TPS area to see what I could see.  What I found was that the throttle body assembly had actually come out of the mounting area (not sure what it is called).  the ring clamp was loose I could move it easily.  Hopeful, I tore down the air intake assembly above it (air filter...etc) removed a sensor clip and a hose.
      I backed off the clamp some more and was able to reseat the throttle body assembly.  put some blue lock tite on the clamp screw.  When I was cleaning off the air intake assembly to ensure I dropped nothing down the intake, I noticed the underside of the air intake "box" also had a clamp.  this screw was completely missing.
      I went to the hardware store, bought a metric replacement (brought clamp with me), seated the assembly, settled the clamp blue lock tite that as well... 
       
      quad fired right up, idled normal, idled up without hesitation and dropped right back off.  Cost of solution $3.87 CND for a pack of 5 metric screws.  moral of my story was don't assume an idle issue is a throttle position sensor problem... there are a number of other factors including air pressure, which I believe was my issue.

      I have a 2000 Suzuki LTF -300 King Quad. My problem is it will start up great, very fast. It will run fine until it gets hot and I turn it off.  If I let it sit for a bit it will not start until I hold the throttle wide open and crank on the starter for quite some timr, acting has if flooded.....but I checked the spark plug one time this happened, went to change thinking it was flooded but only found a dry Plug????  It starts like if flooded but plug was dry, it takes awhile to start, then to get going I have to really rev it to get it clear and going...Thanks any suggestions would be great, thanks everybody in advance...!!!
