1980s Suzuki Quadrunner No Start

Recommended Posts

I have an older 1980s Suzuki quadrunner red lt 4wd (250)

so just finished putting it all back together and was running fine just needed to adjust the rebuilt carb

bf decides to hook up an air chuck to the gas tank because it got a shot of air in the gas line well 120psi didn’t agree with any of the parts including the new carb 

end result : new battery new carb now it just clicks (one single click) won’t turn over 

hard to pull start gets hung up (unless I remove the spark plug ) gas flooded out the first time but now does nothing purchases a new starter waiting the arrival 

could there be damage to the crank shaft or pistons etc? Or install the new starter and try to fire it up ? What caused the starter to die after he flooded everything with gas was working fine. 

Thank you

I'd recommend hooking up the new starter & cranking it over with the spark plug removed.

Good Idea to ground the plug while doing so. Keep pumping it until there's no sign of fuel.

Very important: don't let the plug spark anywhere near that fuel getting cleared!

Not very likely there's damage to the crank/piston, just don't turn it over without the plug out.

I pull started with the plug out and no more fuel comes out but when I get the new starter in a few days I’ll update thanks for the help

Did you try hitting the starter with a hammer a few times? Might have landed on a dead spot. Tap it a few times and see if it cranks.

That was the first thing I tried then check the fuses, tested battery, tested solenoid,  everything was running fine before the air chuck

When you pulled the carburetor off the atv did you inspect it to see that all it’s parts were there? Could anything have blown into the cylinder head from the carburetor that’s causing this.  
Have you checked the oil level and lower half of the engine to see it’s not completely flooded with fuel and oil ? 

 

And I almost forgot welcome to Quadcrazy @Quadrunner44 !

Thanks !!

And I Checked the carb it was intact the air just blew through the bottom rubber gasket and was leaking fuel. took the time to change the oil and put in a new filter

starter won’t fire (still waiting on delivery)

Have you spun the engine to see if it’s spinning free without the spark plug? 

You should also bench test the starter by strapping it down to the work bench and putting 12 v to it to see if it spins.

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.

      Hello eeveryone,
      Just picked up an 86 Suzuki LT185 for my daughter, and she's complaining that it bounces so bad over bumps that it nearly throws her off the quad. I have the tire pressures some where around 3 psi. I really can't go any lower than that. I noticed that there isn't anything in the aftermarket world for shocks and springs for this quad. I am wondering what others are doing to soften up the ride. Also wondering if there's a way to fabricate a rear shock, since there isn't one.  I appreciate your feedback.
      Thanks!

      I am working on a friends 2006 Suzuki LT-Z50 that they purchased not running. I took apart the carb to rebuild it and someone had already been in there... They really destroyed the Air/Fuel Mixture opening in the body of the carb.. It is in no way repairable.
      I have not been able to find an aftermarket carb to fit this model.
      Does anyone know if an aftermarket carb is available?
      Thanks for any help.
