Hope I'm not being a nuisance here booting all these old threads Ajmboy.. but I see there have been a lot of people looking. I presume someone will have the same problems.

Hope it's not breaking the rules posting links too.. let me know if I am. I'd contribute manuals directly but my internet is slow..

And as for the original problem of frying three sets of ignition coils and cdi units..  Cdi systems have to have a special sort of ignition coil made for a high current. If you put an after market coil on there that's not made for the cdi that would blow, and probably wreck the cdi unit.

Other than that, a bad earth somewhere, could be between the stator and the crankcase(unlikely unless it's a broken wire inside there), or the engine might not be properly earthed(also unlikely if the starter works), or the coil, or the cdi unit might not be earthed. ..

@Mech thanks for assisting, and no issues replying to old threads. We keep them mostly open. We do have the manual in our downloads section. I have removed your link and added the direct link to the manual. If you want to share manuals, please add them to our downloads section rather than direct links here: https://www.quadcrazy.com/files/

This way we can continue the library of resources in one place for the community. Thanks!

Good thanks for the reply.. I'm on a slow internet connection here and have trouble sending files..  If I could I would add manuals.. sorry. Thought I should ask about the policy. Some forums don't like links.. security or something I guess.

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.

      Hey everyone, here is an update. I have my new atv battery in and it's fully charged and installed. I have my new hi/lo range knob in that was missing. The ignition is the original one so my new OEM switch will be in Thursday or Friday. I have an original LT-F230 service manual. It gives all the colors of all the wires but does not say which are hot and which are ground. Here are pics of the front cover and the wiring page. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I want to see if I have fire to the ignition switch.
      I do have a multi meter

      Hello I am an occasional lurker for a while now, mainly search for what I need to know and haven’t posted much. I think my old xy utv is on here that was a fun little toy. 
       I’m here in sunny sandy florida, flat ground headquarters.
       Found old atc, it’s a different ride than you get on a quad. I have to remember its wider on back than front view or hit tire on post. 
      neighbor has Polaris he wants help with and I’m elected. You are good guys sharing knowledge with others thank you. Otis
