Suzuki Quadmaster 500, 2000 model

Recommended Posts

Hello again guys ,. I have a Quadmaster that has a very bad lean to my passenger side wheel. I replaced the a arm bushings with no change in the lean,  I see no bent parts and no adjustments available. It's always been there since I got it but became really noticeable when I put the lift kit on it. I'm going to add a picture of the problem if allowed.

Thats some lean. I feel like something you did during the lift was not done correctly or a set of bushings on the top swing arm are crushed. 
My approach would be to pull the front wheels off and take measurements from the bolt holes that hold the swing arms in place to the edge of the hub and compare the numbers.  
If your sure this was not a problem before the lift and nothings bent then its a matter of back tracking and making sure you did not mix up the lift brackets. There are two for the front and one for the back on the single suspension rear swing arm type atvs. 

Is it possible  that you mixed anything  up ?

lastly some frames have two holes for the upper shock mount on the front shocks.  Are they both in the same spots ?

It was leaning really bad before I put the lift kit on it, which is 4 little squares of metal that bolts to the end of the shock. They are all on it correctly. I put new bushings on the a arms, which was not easy to do and they weren't crushed. I'm going to order new ball joints and see what that does. I can visualize one more thing to try but will wait until I do the ball joints to reveal.

I guess thats a good start on the ball joints. Is there any play at all with the wheel off the ground  ? The A frames look ok they match ? Reason I'm asking is maybe the previous owner wrecked it, bent it and put the wrong A frame on the atv?

I don't know anything about the ATV.  I saw 2 ATVs sitting under the carport of a vacant house for 5 year's, pitch black at night, passed the house one day on my way home and finally saw someone there. I ran off the road and jumped out saying ' finally somebody's here ' we talked a bit and he gave me a price. $700 for both of them, Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4 and a Suzuki Quadmaster 500 4x4. Brought them home, put gas and a battery in the Kaw and been riding it since. Suzuki needed a rectifier and a battery, carburetor kit  then fired right up. The speedo showed 525 miles on the Suzuki when I got it.

      I just bought these in the fall as a pair and of course they were running awesome with no problems at that time.
      One of them now will only start with starting fluid. It runs great once it's started, but absolutely refuses to start without a squirt of the good stuff.  The other one starts just fine, but dies after it gets warm. The only way to keep it running is to keep the throttle up. It won't run at an idle, and keeping it running has the throttle too high to shift.  Any ideas or suggestions are very much appreciated!!!
      Thank you,
