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.

      So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.  
      Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. 
      It has a plow and a winch included!!!
      Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.  
       
      Stay tuned.

      Hi everyone! I'm from New Zealand, and doing up a Suzuki Lt50 for the kids. This is the first bike I've ever worked on, and it's currently not running. Hoping that both Google and this forum will get me through! Haha

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Trying to replace the carburetor on my 2003 Bear Tracker 250. Two brand new carbs in a row from different suppliers.   Both leak fuel out over flow and intake as soon as I turn the gas on. Any ideas. Am I doing something wrong?
