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 

 

SO THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!!!

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.

      My Dad's 03 Manual Vinson has milky oil. He changed oil and ran it everyday for a week being sure to keep it running for an hour each time. Fresh oil is getting milky again..
      Thinking it's the water pump seal. Has anyone here successfully changed the seal or even replaced the whole pump assembly?

      2001 Yamaha Wolverine new coil new solenoid switch new battery no spark

      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.

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      Hi, I'm a newbie on here.  I just got a 2007 Suzuki KingQuad LT-A450X.  Are there any specific issues to look for on this model?  Any specific maintenance to do other than the usual oil and filter changes?  
      Thanks

      Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00.  It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year.  Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc.  No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing.  Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right?  I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water.  I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine.  I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark.  Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs.  Wet test bumped it up to 90.  Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised.  I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show  it's got life.  Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either.  The compression is now around 60.
        Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going?  I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn.  I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well.  Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again.  Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right.  I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
      I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much.  I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down?  I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
       
      I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.
       
      thanks!
