2006 700 carb just died(electrical)


Recommended Posts

Hope everyone is having a great weekend,

While riding my quad just quit, I mean dead. No life on the dash, no crank and obesity no start. 

Had a quick look under the plastic, batt reading 12.7v power at the key switch.

Changed the power pack, still no luck.

Anyone else have similar problems?

I don't see a fuse box/panel, is there fusible links in the system? If so where di I start looking?

So what model ? Sportsman etc.. I'll see if I can find  manual.

Not just the kill switch got bumped off..  I think some of those have a connection board in the headlight..  So I've read.. 

And two years earlier model the power went into the key on a red wire and came out on a red/black wire..  Is that working ?

Then one R/b wire goes to a circuit breaker and then to the kill switch on the handlebar.  I don't know yours will be the same though. That's for a late 2004, with fuel gauge(which they mention as an identifier)..). Does your's have a fuel gauge ?

After going into the kill switch it branches to the lights and the key again for start.. so if neither lights nor start work, it seems likely to be before(the circuit breaker) or in the kill switch.. assuming the power is coming out of the key switch on the R/b wire. The wire goes in the the key, and out again, on spliced wires.. Might be worth checking the splices are not dirty.

Mech, thanks for the input/questions.

My bad, its a 2006 Sportsman 700 carb.

I have looked at the kill switch and all seems good, the lights light up but nothing on the display and no crank.

It dose have a fuel display if that is an identifier. A wire diagram would be best for me, from there I can trace power back, unless I am missing something common and obvious.

I have power to the key and power out when switched, odd thing is it drops voltage at the key to 2.5v after 10-15 seconds.

Mech, thanks for the pdf. I saw a manual in the downloads but need to wait for a couple more post before I can download.

With that being said I did manage to find the problem, carboned/dirty ignition switch of all things.

Pulled it apart, cleaned up all the contact pads and contacts, applied some dielectric grease, reassemble. Works like a charm. 

Thanks for all your input,

I had a spare SSCB, first thing I though of and replaced.

Picked it up at my local dealer as NOS they wanted to dump off the shelf. I grabbed it hoping it would correct a false engine over heating warning, no luck with that. 

They had a recall on these when they first hit the market. Oh well back on the shelf it goes.

I have a 2003 700, similar problem. Mine was intermittent. Changed the ignition switch ($9 on ebay) and the problem went away. 

I fixed mine the same way, bad ignition switch.

      I picked up a 2000 Big Bear 400 4X4 that was sitting around that I know nothing about. It will not start. I do have a red light when in reverse. When I take it out of reverse, I do not get a green neutral light, and when I push the start button the red oil light comes on but there are no noises, nothing else happens. How do I test the neutral switch and/or bypass it to see if I can get it to at least crank? And does anyone have other suggestions for me to try?

      Mostly wondering about the 4/110.  I am in need of new tires for my 4x4 and want to also know if I should stick to the same brand/profile etc. for the fronts and the rears since they are different.

      Hey everybody,
      My proficiency is with Hondas and Yamahas make me see RED!
      This bike is my brother in law's, it has 1199 miles on it and went from running great to dead with no start. Every once and a while it will start and sputter for 2 seconds. It is extremely sporadic when it fires but never runs for longer than 3 seconds. 
      Here is where we sit:
      Brand New Fully Charged battery
      Carb was cleaned with air hose and carb cleaner then into the ultrasonic cleaner with Aircraft aluminum cleaner
      New Shindy Carb kit (made in Japan version)
      Cleaned out petcock and gas tank
      New 93 Non Ethanol Gas
      New Spark Plug
      It gets a spark through the spark test light every time
      Bluish white spark
      When holding the spark plug 1/4" - 3/8" away from head it will jump and spark to the head
      Good Compression
      Here are the readings:
      Pickup Coil 519 Ohms (range 459-561)
      Charging Coil 266 Ohms (range 270-330)
      Lighting Coil 0.700 (range 0.702-0.858)
      Spark plug Cap 10.58 Ohms (10kohms
      Ignition Coil Primary Coil 0.5 ohms (range 0.18-0.28 ohms)
      Ignition Coil Secondary Coil 8.20 kOhms (range 6.32-9.48 kOhms)
      Would y'all think stator and pick up coil, rectifier or CDI are the culprit?

      My king quad 700 runs rough when cold then won't start some times but not often when it's hot. And occasionally smoke's a lot when it's cold I'm guessing that's rings but I'm worried unless it's causing the other problems
      All help is appreciated thanks
    • By jatho
      Has anyone else had an issue on older king quads where the oil would leak from the top of the head (due to a failed gasket) and drip onto the hot exhaust? Mine got so hot one time it caught fire. Just wondering if this is a common issue, as I've seen the same thing happen on multiple bikes that were the same model.
