Another one back from the dead (1997 King Quad 300 LT-FWDX)

I think there is a piece of metal tacked onto the flywheel that determines the timing.  When it goes by the pickup coil it tells the coil to fire.  So it would be that metal bit in relation to the keyway.  Yeah it would be interesting to compare.

If you need that plate let me know.  I don't think I'd ever need it and I'm sure there's another one on the engine sitting in the woods.

I'd love to grab it from you for sure. I think the stator coils themselves are fine, and I'd ideally like to get that 230S built, with or without having Vince make a frankencrank. PM me an address and I'll send you some loot. I got some handy things in the mail today - case splitter, valve spring compressor, valve guide reamer, and a couple other doodads.  I got a hunch earlier, and just confirmed that it has a Blaster rear fender on it. They cut the airbox out of it and drilled some new holes. It doesn't look *that* bad, but a real 250S seat wouldn't fit. I think that's why someone cut the seat pan. 

I had the little daredevil all afternoon and just had an hour to fiddle with it, managed to get it to fire and purr on a shot of ether. Sounds fukn mean lol. Also figure out that the DG Krome RCM I have is for a Kawasaki Mojave 250. Go figure.

Maybe because the original disintegrated?  Seems like there was a place that sold aftermarket plastics.  That might be your best bet if you want the original seat.

Did you ever get a compression tester?  Be interesting to know the compression.

Started it up today. Still have a bit of an exhaust leak from header to muffler, but it sounds strong.

Took it for a quick rip, need to adjust float and get jetting right, but it goes like Billy blew shit. 
Stopping is another story. Bled front brakes, but the pads are toast. Rears not functioning at all yet. Rode it anyway, broke a chair ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Sounds good.  Wonder if it has a wiseco.  Can you peer into the plug hole?

I’ll try to take a look and see if I can find any markings on it.

Incidentally I pulled the top end off of that 230 S motor I got a few weeks ago, it had been sitting in a barn for a while, and it looks like something made a nest in there at least temporarily.

 My best guess is D-Con, mouse shit, and mold.

the guy said he re-ringed it before shelving it. Appears to be true.

That only thing I can think is the regulator.  Hard starting when hot is usually electrical.  Try a new spark plug.

I have done that but I went to start the bike yesterday's and no spark again and I've swapped out the coial and cdi box and not a hope of anything

I've never seen a bad ignition coil or cdi so it probably wouldn't be that, as you discovered.

I always change plugs just because it's easy.  Even if the plug is brand new.  I've seen new ones not work right.

It could be practically anything but if it's associated with heat it's probably electrical.  If it's not associated with heat then I'd check the intake valve lash first thing.  Do you know how to do that?

Pull spark plug out.  Take intake valve inspection cap off.  Pull the pull cord slowly until you see the intake valve move.  Then I always put a screwdriver in the spark plug hole to feel the piston while pulling on the rope to find TDC, but there is also a cap covering an inspection hole on the other side of the engine that has TDC marks.  One way or the other, find TDC after the intake valve moves and that should be TDC on the compression stroke.

Once you have it fairly close to TDC on the compression stoke, then just grab the rocker arm and wiggle it up and down.  If there is no gap (clicking or tapping sound) then that's your problem.  It's supposed to be .001 - .003.

Let me know what you find.
