1998 Suzuki Quadrunner LT-F250 Pull Start

Go to solution Solved by Mech,

Recommended Posts

This quad was a hot mess two weeks ago when I got it. I've been tinkering on it and have it running pretty good. It didn't have a pull start.  I just got one and installed it today.  Here's a little video of my first try at using it.  Hope it's worthy of a "onya" from Mech! 🙂

My internet's too sh** to see the video today Parham, but good work getting it going.. I'll try looking later.

I don't know what technique you use with the pull start, but the suzuki owners manual suggests an unusual way of using  the decompression lever when using it. Most things you just lift the decomp and then pull the starter. Suzuki say to lift the decomp and then pull the starter very slowly till the decomp lever just flips itself back to the closed valve position, then let the rope right back in, gently engage the pull start and then give it a hard pull. It's a good system. It means you've parked the engine with the exhaust valve just closed and all ready to start an intake stroke, and still leave the motor enough turns to get up to speed before the next compression.. You get full charge of air and fuel, easy pull and a reliable start..

Ha.. and now my internet goes and I see you follow suzuki's way already.. 

I only read about it a while back after years of struggling to get bikes to pull start..
