Reserecting 1986 Suzuki LT230S

Recommended Posts

I decided to do a total rebuild of this quad. It needed all new bearings and I figured I would give it some paint and rebuild the engine. Well at least new bearings and top end but not for sure yet because I have not tore the motor down yet. Got the frame and a few small partst primed so far. I'll post some pics later today.

When using the "Hotlink for Forums", just copy and paste the code into your post, looks like you may have used the insertimage.gif button and entered the code into the popup box. When using the insertimage.gif button, you need the exact url of the image which you can get from right clicking on any image and going to properties...then copy the url to put into the box.

I corrected your images in this thread.:wink:

I used some bumper paint so it would be flexible. Don't know for sure if it is gonna last though but looks good until I get it in the woods and run it for a while. Paint may chip off don't know yet.

That should work better that the Krylon fusion I used to paint one of my quads. That stuff started rubbing and chipping off after the first ride. There is some kind of rubberized paint that one of the members used on thiers, I can't remember what it was called or what forum it was mentioned in, but it sounded like good stuff.

I am hopeing that my paint won't chip but if it does I will just blast it all off and use some colored bed liner on it. Will be very durable then! At least I think it would work.

Update on quad- Pulled case apart today and found out that not only is my connecting rod bad but so is the crankshaft itself had a couple teeth broke off of the timing cog. Just ordered one on ebay that looked good for 130.00. Now I have to get started on repairing my left center case and do some tapping on some threads.

it was called plastic dip....good stuff but i have only found it in one color...flat black

Flat black works well for me, didn't you say you got it at Home Depot or something?

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?

      I went out to ride my quad today. When I started it up it ran for a minute, then died. Since then it will turn over but won't start. I've check the spark plug and get great fire. I have had this quad for about 6 months, and very new to breaking it down. But need help. Thanks
