King Quad 700 not getting fuel pressure

Recommended Posts

About 6 months ago I had a new fuel pump, ECM, stator and heaven only knows what else installed on my 05 King Quad.  It has been running great until the other day when I went to get it off the trailer, and it would not start.  Pulled the plug, and it was a little dirty, but not bad, but I put a new one in just for good measure.  Still would not start.  Pulled the fuel line connector underneath and turned on the switch and fuel was coming out, but with little to no pressure.  I turned the switch off and on multiple times to fill up a water bottle with fuel, and the fuel was good.  As it turns out, the fuel pump is out of warranty (go figure).  So, I'm going to put a pressure gauge on it tomorrow and see what it is pumping.  Is there anything else I can check?

Many thanks,

 

David

The fuel pumps have diaphragms that crack sometimes.   We have also  seen new pumps installed with problems.  It’s weird but they do fail more so then the manufacturers like to admit.  I would swap it out and see how it goes.

I appreciate the response.  I fully suspect that you are right, and I have already located another.  It is just such a pain on these to put in, because there is so much that has to come off before you can even get to it!!

Many thanks!!

Yes it is, but for an 05' it only has 370 miles on it.  It is my primary means of getting around on my property since my electric wheelchair just won't go where I want to go.  Oh well, such is life.  Thanks again!!

No worries. Just be sure you’ve checked everything else as well.  Vacuum, all lines are tight, and anything else related to the fuel pump system  etc.

Are there vacuum hoses other than the primary fuel line???  Recommendations on what else to check???  The local Suziki dealership will not help because it older than 10 years old.  So it is me and the Polaris tech and he knows much more than me, but probably not as much as you regarding Suziki's.

That bike is fuel injected yes ? If so you’ve replaced the pump ? And do you hear the pump come on when you turn the ignition ? I thought it was a vacuum set up.   

Can you pots a few pics ?

It is fuel injected, and the pump does come on.  We pulled the fuel line and each time I would turn the key to the on position it would pump fuel.  It is just not pumping at 43 psi, I am almost certain of it.  What photos would you like to see?  It will be tomorrow morning before I can send anything to you.

Ok I thought it was a vacuum pump.  No pictures needed. So that new pump is an oem or aftermarket? Have you primed the fuel lines and checked that there is no obstruction coming from the tank ? 

Was it a direct replacement and plug right in?

It is an OEM pump that was put on.  Each time I turned the ignition on, fuel would pump out, but according to the specs, it is supposed to come out at around 43 psi.  I was able to put my thumb over the line, and no fuel would push past.  The tank was clean before the new pump was put in.  I am running 100% ethanol free gas in it, and have been doing so for a while.

I would go back and look at the intake portion of the fuel system and check that  the petcock, supply lines are clear and no cracks in the lines where you could be sucking in air. Take the fuel pump off and bench test it also if you can.

I know you said you cleaned the tank but you replaced the pump did you also change the pick up filter at the sending unit and double check that the hose connections were on correct ?

The pickup filter was not changed.  The hose connections are correct.  Please make me smarter!!  Where is the pickup filter located on the bike?

I’m not 100% familiar with this bike but if I’m not mistaken theres a screen inside the tank on the sending unit.   I would pull the tank agin and take that sending u it out and double check all of this.  Did the pump come with a screen ?

There is a screen in the bottom of the tank and it was clean.  I will have to look at it to find the sending unit.  The pump did not come with a screen.

Maybe this will help I just looked on YouTube and found this.   

Let me know if it helps.  

 

Not sure if it matches your bike but worth a shot.

I will, and thank you!!  I watched the video, and now I'm trying to locate a sending unit, just in case.  

 

Thank you again!!

Your very welcome but I could be incorrect on this so don’t thank me yet! 

Also  keep in mind about bench testing that 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?

      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

      When it comes to adding more power to your ATV, the first thing that usually comes to mind is bolting on a slip-on exhaust. However, that usually means you are also bolting on a lot more noise. HMF do...
