2006 Suzuki King Quad 700 Help!! Spark Plug

Recommended Posts

Just bought 06 KingQuad 700 and first ride out hit a mud hole, not to deep and it shut off and would not start. 
Got it home and found the spark plug hole was full of mud and water. Went and bout a new spark plug and began cleaning it out. Put a deep socket in there and it wouldn’t grab. Took a pic with my flash and this is what I see. Any suggestions? And what is it??

previous owner said it had a new coil so that’s why I decided to change out the spark plug, also ordered new coil should be here by the weekend.

If that's what you see when you look in the spark plug hole then there's a problem. 
Not sure what that pic is or the blue stuff in the pic!

Ahhhh ok i see it now.  So im assuming that the previous spark plug cap/boot had a big flat rubber washer on it that would have prevented water from getting inside.  My guess is the new coil did not have that boot I mentioned. 
Can you post a pic of that?  
If the spark plug is stripped and you cant get  it out then worst case is you pull the cylinder head off and work it out from the underside of the head. Maybe spray penetrating oil in the head/spark plug hole and let it sit for a day and try to get a smaller socket on there.  They also sell a socket that adapts to any size nut. Maybe try that?

@Frank Angerano Thank you yes the boot goes in but does not completely fill gaps around the sides so that’s why I was assuming that is some kind of silicone. I’m just trying to figure out What’s going on with the bottom of the cylinder head where the spark plug screws in. I cannot get any socket to grip on to the spark plug but you didn’t make a good point about just pulling the cylinder head off worst case I will try that.

That looks like the rubber bushing that should have been inside the plug boot just came off and stayed on the plug.  Can you get to it with a pick and try to bury it in the rubber and pull it back out?  My spark plug sockets always do that so I have a few without the rubber bushing in them from that very scenario.

I did or didn't make a good point ? Pull the head off, not the cylinder jug.  You have a lot more options getting that plug out with the head off. Either way make sure you spray the plug a day before.  
But i would spray and try the socket i sent first.

looks to me likie theres just super hard packed mud in the hole.  you cant even see the hex on the spark plug, much less get a hold of it with a socket.  i would try scraping on that black stuff with a precision screwdriver and see if it doesnt loosen up

Jacob was right. I just finished up scraping out mud probably for 2006. Spark plug has never been changed. New plug, new coil will be here Thursday. Also checked the tps and found _C00 google is my friend and told me it needs to be -C00 and 2 screws loosened and adjusted its now at -C00 so I’m pretty confident I got it! Thanks for everyone’s help and fast responses. Sent the same question to a Suzuki forum and got 1 reply

That's awesome! @JacobSlabach is a smart member!!!!!

Did you vacuum out the dirt before you pulled the plug ? 

There are a lot of members here that will always answer and do there best as quick as possible.  Thats why as much as one would go to a specific brand forum, Quadcrazy members have all different brands and a ton of knowledge. 

Good luck brother and ride safe.

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.
