My first Suzuki finally!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

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.

Wow @Frank Angerano that's in good shape, I'm afraid to ask you how much you paid cause you always make great deals! You can tell by the condition of the rims, it wasn't dinged up. 2 of my friends had Eigers back when they came out, great quads. 4WD, solid rear axle, semi-auto shift I believe. 

Was this a craigslist find or something else? Have you ever used facebook marketplace?

Thanks @Ajmboy i found it on craigslist. The guy was looking to trade for a motorcycle. He said he did not use it and didn't want it to sit any longer.   It starts up but only for about 20 seconds and starts to die off. Its been sitting for a while in a shed.   
Ive seen marketplace but never use it since i don't really use Facebook.

 I always get a little crazy after i finish a project like the big bear i just did and start looking for the next project.  This one wont need much work so its not really a project but it's something to play with    

This one popped right up when i looked and the guy got right back to me. Took a lot of back and forth and  coordination to lock it down bit it worked out. 
Im a firm believer in if its meant to be it will be.

You going to keep it or turn it around? Float pin in the carb is probably stuck from sitting...

Im going to move it along, as nice as it is i like a foot shifter.  I agree on the float pin valve. The owner said he pumped the bad gas out of the tank.  Said it smelt so bad, he put new gas in and a battery.  It cranked and started for only half a minute or so. I was able to take a quick ride and go through all the gears.

So !!!!! Pulled the carburetor off to clean it up. It was already clean and ready to go.  Found a small fuel leak on the bowl due to to the seal on the bowl not fitting correctly. Ordered a new kit with the gaskets included.  However I found worse, there are patched wires from what looks like a small fire. I picked apart the wires as best possible but it seems theres a short someplace within the harness.   I had it running for a while but will not rev. So im going to dig deeper. Some people suck! The previous owner knew there was a fire and hid it pretty well.

Lol. Found a harness $65 bucks oem. Its on the way. Perfect condition. Canceled the other one.  Also putting a new rebuild kit in the carburetor. The bowl gasket is not sitting in the grove correctly any more so i have  a drip.

Nice find. A buddy bought an Cub Cadet not running. Looked brand new guy said starter and flywheel was shot. Maybe the broken con rod had something to do with that. People...

Update: New harness is installed and carburetor rebuilt! I thought for sure this would solve the problem since the spark looked 10 times better. NOPE! The engine refuses to rev past half throttle.  Carburetor is 100% good, i have a lot of backfiring as well but that was also going on before all this. Tested all components except the cdi and we all know why we can't test that little fucker, but everything else is well within spec. 
 

Now I've gone over the entire engine and nothing looks like its been taken apart in fact  its all factory looking and like new but i am leaning toward the timing because the backfire issue or maybe a cam?? 

Pick up coil maybe ? But it tested good, the rpms coming up seem to throw it off. Flywheel/magnets????

I guess take a look at tye top end first and go from there. 
Stay tuned! 

FML......

It could very well be a timing issue. The kfx was thrown out of time due to stretched timing chains. Caused a back fire and stumbling idle. All the luck brother

      I'm on to the next project. I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 2X4 quad runner back into service. I am currently going thru the fuel system and am waiting on some parts. In the meantime I have been trying to locate replacement fenders and I'm not having much luck.  The orriginal fenders have become brittle and cracked due to sun and exposure to the elements. Any help on finding replacement fenders, OEM or aftermarket, will be appreciated.

      Hello,
      I'm new to the site.  My son and I have decided to bring back our old quad from the dead.  Does anyone know where we can purchase a cylinder kit for it.  I think it's a 1986, but will have to check the VIN to be sure.
      The last time it ran, it was tapping and smoking pretty bad.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      Thanks!

      Where do you buy your ATV gear? I am planning to buy a swing arm guard, heavy duty bumpers, chassis armor, nerf bars and grab bars for my 2003 Suzuki EIGER 400. Any recommendations?

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model
