Full Choke Only Suzuki QuadMaster 500 2001

Recommended Posts

Below is a quote from a response to similar question from yesterday: 

"Easiest thing to check is trash in the main jet.  if it idles fine, then the idle circuit and low speed jet is clear.  if it bogs off idle that's when it's transitioning to the main jet." 

I will go ahead and open up the carb and check the main jet, but please respond to this post as if the main jet is squeaky clean.

Below is my post:

Only starts and runs on Full chock. 

Does not matter what position I have my "mixture" screw.   Tried it at zero, 1 turn, 2 turn, up to five turns.  Spent a few hours confirming that the position of the mixture screw does not resolve issue.

Runs great at idle and if I slowly engage throttle, it will rev up as expected.  But, quick rev up or when I am trying to drive it, it spits and sputters and looses power.

I also use a propane bottle and did not find any obvious leaks, and the vacuum port is hooked to fuel peacock and I also made sure to simply block the port with my finger to see if that would resolve the issue.

New Carb (after market), New Coil, Fresh Gas.  No leaks at manifold boot, hot battery.  Good gas flow.    Runs too good to be a valve issue, or cylinder, great compression.

I can move the choke out a tiny bit, and it will still run, but will still bog down when I try to power it up.

I also have a 250 trail boss Polaris that I require to run at full choke, but it has power at all throttle potions.

I suspect it is running rich as the choke is on, but will not run with it off.

Any details would be appreciated.

Ha, that response sounds like something I would say. :)

so yes, most likely just flooding itself to death.  I'm assuming by aftermarket carb you mean a chinese clone?  The jets on those are NOTORIOUS for not being stamped, stamped wrong, way wrong size, just junk in general.  I've used a few out of necessity and they either fire right up or you spend time tinkering to get them to 80%.  Do you have the OEM?  If you do use the original jets in the clone carb, that works sometimes.  I've also had the clone carbs come in with the float terribly high or low, give that a check also.

Your situation reminds me of a clone carb on a ATC 185s I had a while back.  Couldn't get that thing to run for anything if you stabbed the throttle.  This issue was the carb passages were wrong not just the jets.  I ended up putting a small main jet and raising the needle a clip or two and got it to about 90%.  Good enough to pop wheelies non stop because that's what 3 wheelers are for!

I would still recommend a compression check to eliminate the valve lash issue. And depending on mileage your timing could be off enough that the valves are opening early. The chains can stretch over time and cause run issues.

      I am trying to figure out what the resistors do in this circuit.  From what I have read in the manual the head light/tail light circuit is A/C.  I am adding LED headlights/taillight so I want to convert it to D/C.  My assumption is the resistors in the circuit bleed off some power since the incandescent bulbs are low wattage.  Any input would be greatly appreciated.  I am not putting a Baja LED light kit or light bar, just LED bulbs in the stock location and a small cube flood mounted on the handle bars.  I already have the LED bulbs installed in the stock locations but they flicker badly.
       
      Cheers,

      I have a 2001 650 quest that ran great. Shut it off, wont start. Got tinkering at a buddies, it ended up in a snowbank. Lost my train of thought since then.  I have a black, red, green  top with two plug in wires yellow and yellow and red I believe.. I have a new battery. Just dunno what to do. I tried hooking the wire coming up to the solenoid on the far side, then directly across I put the positive cable and it instantly started turning over without the button being pressed until I took the cable off.  The little black resistor box has also been eliminated.   Any help would be greatly appreciated..

      Can I check the compression just by pulling the pull start even if it doesnt start?
    • By cgilley
      Ran it out of gas last month... Works fine for 3 or so days then refuses to start.... Changed out the sparkplug and it will run for 15 or so seconds before shutting off.... Cleaned out the fuel system and injector and it misses when idling as well as shutting off at idle every so often... It is giving me no other issues and sounds and runs fine while riding... Only issue is cutting off at idle.....
      Ideas anyone??

      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,

      I have a 2001 suzuki quadmaster 500 4x4 that has a rev limiter when it is in any gear other than neutral, i have already fixed a bunch of stuff on it and would love to just bypass it if anyone knows how. Thanks for any help.

      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.
