1990 suzuki ltf250 quadrunner poor idle

Recommended Posts

The quad starts good and runs good if the choke is on just a little. I installed a carb kit and backed the screw out 13/4 turns to where it was . Any ideas?

Thanks

Once you install a carb kit (rebuild) things change within the performance of the carburetor.  Going back to the original setting means noting other then getting a starting point for adjusting.  

Do this and see if it helps:

Start the bike up and let it warm up. Take the choke off and let the bike idle.  

Start to turn the fuel air mixture screw in either direction (My guess would be out). Your looking for the engine to start to rev higher. That’s a good thing! Keep going and as the engine reaches it’s sweet spot you will know because it will start to decrease revving  if you go to far. So once the engine stops revving higher and starts to break up a little stop! Turn the screw back maybe 1/4 turn. Then you can lower the IDLE screw and get the engine to level off to a healthy idle.  

See how the bike runs after that. My guess would be somewhere around the 2 to 2-1/4 turns out would be where it needs to be.

      The play on my KQ 300 (1998) choke doesn't allow for the full movement downward on the thumb lever. So it goes about halfway down and if I push a little too far the cable pops out of the plastic setting it sits inside of. Then of course I have to take the control unit apart and put it back into position.
       
      Is it normal for the thumb lever to not go all the way down?
       
      I have no play left in the adjustment screw on the cable in the correct direction. The only play I have left would make it worse.
       
      It'a a new-to-me quad so I'm not sure if it's a replacement cable or OEM.
       
      Thanks

      the king quad had sit for about 1 1/2 years. So I rebuilt the carb and now it will not start. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

      Yes I just got a 1998 polaris xplorer 400 4x4. Ran fine after hauling then died. Cleaned carb and put new fuel filter, hose, and new battery in. Starts 3 out of 10 times but will only run for a short time. Any suggestions?

      Fixing up a 1998 King Quad 300. The rear brake was locked up, and the owner tried to force it free and snapped the axle.
       
      I disconnected the brake cable, and tapped on the backing plate with a soft mallet to get the brake freed up. When I pulled off the brake drum a bunch of nasty rust water came out.
       
      Once I had the axle out, I popped the boot off so I could see the inner u joint so I could phase/synchronize it with the outer. There was a flat steel disc floating around in the boot, looks like it used to be pressed into the end of the axle. Glad I got that out of there before it munched up the joint.
       
      The book says the yokes should be aligned, I couldn't get mine aligned. They were always 7 degrees off from each other. A bit frustrating, maybe that's within the tolerance limits?
       
      But I got it all back together and it runs great.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris
