very unhappy with first test trial of 07 vinson 500

Recommended Posts

ok so i bought a 07 suzuki vinson brand new from the dealer. i currently have 120 miles on it thats all. Took my atv out so Tionesta, PA this weekend about a 2 1/2 hour trip. It rained on sat for about an hour, mean time my atv sat under a tree wating for the cold rain to go away. So rain stops wipe the very little amount of water off the atv. go to fire it up gauges come on push start button. Hear the starter relay hum and no start... ok maybe just battery low. pull start and go on my way. get 2 seconds down the trail. Hit my brakes and my gauge cluster shuts off and flickers and goes crazy. let off the brakes it comes back on... continues doing this for about 8 hours. night time rolls around go for a night ride. same ordeal no elec start and gauges not working but now my headlights are barely on and flickering... i thought atvs were suppose to take a beating and keep on rolling. this gets a lil rain on it and goes haywire. Isnt the cluster suppose to be waterproof or at least water resistant? any suggestions what to do with this thing? im very unhappy with it right now. Should i just take back to dealer and shove it down his throat for selling me this or what? i have what the dealer called a 6 month bumper to bumper warranty? any suggestions would be great. Thanks for any help

now that its dried out for a day it acts like nothing happened making me think its a wire short some place all gauges work starts fine works great... even before the trip i noticed after i let the atv sit for a week or so it wouldn't elec start it would just make the relay hum like the battery was almost dead. Thought nothing of it till this weekend when it wouldnt stop doing that. Guess ill get it wet and take it back to dealer even tho the dealer i got it from was a bunch of idiots in the first place. guy didnt even know to check the coolant level before they send out a brand new machine...

If you weren't from Mentor I would have guessed you bought it from Park Honda in Canton. There service department really sucks!! What dealer did you buy from?

Action is great! But they are almost an hour away from my house. I have had good luck with Roush Motor Sports in Medina as well.

Did you get this problem worked out? I just bought the same quad, brand new and zero probs out of mine...I assume yours was a leftover from 2007 like mine.

well i feel like a dummy know. decided to clean it up today befor taking it to the dealer. decided to pop the seat off and check out under there... well dumb a$$ me should have checked here in the first place. The spot where the fuses and starter relay are under the seat were completely submerged in water the drain plug was pluged up cause somehow a ton of woodchips and crap got under there and blocked the drain. let the water all drain out and let it dry... SURPRISE it all works again including the elec start. also the negative battery terminal had a lil bit of crud on it again im going to have to put terminal protector on them.... oh well

      So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.  
      Its been sitting for about a year in a shed. 
      It has a plow and a winch included!!!
      Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.  
       
      Stay tuned.

      I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 quadrunner back into service. I have it up and running like new but need to replace the plastics as they are brittle and crumbling due to age and sun exposure. I would like to purchase new parts either OEM or aftermarket but have had little luck in finding them. I would even consider used or salvaged parts in serviceable condition. Any help in locating these parts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

      I'm on to the next project. I am trying to put a 1994 Suzuki 250 2X4 quad runner back into service. I am currently going thru the fuel system and am waiting on some parts. In the meantime I have been trying to locate replacement fenders and I'm not having much luck.  The orriginal fenders have become brittle and cracked due to sun and exposure to the elements. Any help on finding replacement fenders, OEM or aftermarket, will be appreciated.

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.
