2008 Kingquad 450axi Problems?

Recommended Posts

I'm having a few problems with my 450, I must start by saying even after all of the grief that I feel that I have suffered through, I still love this machine. OK, Problem one: It feels as tho it idles a little rough, perhaps even comparable to the vibration of a space shuttle cockpit launching. After slight throttle, and I mean slight its fine again. Not really a problem as far as drive ability is concerned, but still a concern of mine. Second problem and the one that bugs me the most. My diff lock / 4wd will absolutely not disengage, getting kind of worried due to the fact I still have 40 or so months left to pay for this "cash vampire". Dealer denied my warranty when I took it in for its first service because there was mud on the bike. Did not know that would deny my warranty but, whatever, ATV warranties are fishy anyway. Kind of skeptical rather or not to take my machine to a Dealer, but with the way things are today with mom and pop shops kind of sticking it to customers to cover there own payroll I don't know where to turn. No offense to the good shops (you know who you are). I have read some forums on this problem, but I feel this problem is a little to screwed up at this early mileage, by the way specs on bike ( 08, 450axi, 760 miles, 109 hours ) please give me some input or thoughts on these problems.

Thank you, and sorry for such a long story.

P.S. Sometimes when I stop, the moment I give throttle it makes a chirp noise like a tire skid, and jerks. Maybe the belt?

is it efi? if not the rough running at idle could be caused from ur rpms being set to high...as for the 4wd and the diff not disengaging, um have you stopped when switching from 2wd to 4wd and then to diff lock??...or have u been engaging it while moving?

Wow, after disassembling what seems like the entire 4wd elec system, my friend Tommy has figured the problem out. First you must remove the 4WD/Difflock selector switch off of the right side handle bar, then remove 3 screws on the inside over the circuit board. Once removed you must actually take out the device from inside the casing. Now this is where you must follow exact instructions, you will notice the lead wires on the bottom side of the circuit board, link blk/wht circuit against the one diagonally to it in order to put the DVC in motion, if done correctly you will notice the sound of the relay throwing, and the DVC removing the difflock, do not feel scared if the DIFF LOCK light blinks after initial contact, turn off ignition and turn back on, Problem Solved.

Feel free to contact via email for youtube video instructions. Coming soon.

As far as your rough idle goes, I would start by checking easy basic stuff it you haven't already, like the spark plug, and air cleaner. I'm sure there is a throttle position sensor of some kind, that could be an issue. If there is any type of adjustment on the throttle cable that could help, you may just need to open the throttle body a tiny bit more to get enough air flow for it to idle smoother. The other problem you are having could also be the cause of the rough idle too, it sounds kind of like the clutch or belt drive system is sticking. If it is engaging too early, that could cause extra strain on the motor when it is trying to idle. Also, if it is hanging up and not engaging as soon as it should, you will get the noise and lurch like you are describing. You may have some debris of some kind inhibiting proper operation of your clutch or belt drive. The diff lock problem could be some kind of switch or wiring problem as best I can tell the same actuator operates the 4wd shift fork and the diff lock shift fork, so if it shifts into 4wd, then the actuator is oprational, it may not be getting the signal to shift the diff lock into position. It is also possible that the diff lock mechanism itself is damaged or otherwise operating improperly. Could be something sticking or broken. I would start by troubleshooting the circuit that runs the actuator and if everything works ok, I would then perform a visual inspection of the front differential and the shift components for the diff lock. If you can find a manual, I would absolutely get one, sounds like you will need it.

You know, i need to find out if there is some time of TPS and its location. Seriously this bike has more electronics on it than my new car.

Once again, if you can find a manual, it will be a huge help when trying to locate components and troubleshoot problems.

the tps is connected to the throttle body. you can check trouble codes by sticking a paper clip in the diagnostic port some where under the seat near the battery if im not mistaken it will have a rubber cap on it to prevent mud and dirt from getting in it. i will have to get back to you on which two contacts you put paper clip in. it will show the position of the tps and tell you code looking something like this -C00 that would mean no codes and the dash next to the "c" stands for the position of the tps. it should be in that position as you see it in the center when the throttle is not being applied.

I have had a problem for some time now with the same model, the problem is the atv dies out as the throttle is pressed and it will not run for very long. sometimes it is worse. the fuel pump was dirty so it was replaced and a screen was added. it ran good for a little while, but then it has the same problem again. the jet seems to be supplying sufficient fuel, and when accelerating and starving the intake then allowing more air to enter, it runs better and can actually reach operating RPM. Has anyone else had a similar problem or solution?

      Hi I have a YAMAHA RAPTOR 660R 2003
      I have taken of my Air filter and sprayed in my air inlet some carberator cleaner while starting it. That causes some problems. It struggles to start now. Please look at my attachedment video. 
      What can I do now.?

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      Hey guys, new here, but haven't found ANY answer to my specific problem on a Suzuki dedicated ATV forum, so here's to hoping!
      I acquired a 95' Quadrunner 250, 4x4, (LT4WD) for practically nothing with no spark. The PO had tossed in a used stator which didn't fix the problem... so I went all routes (though cheaply) to narrow down the initial problem of no spark. 
      Plug, coil, CDI (caltric) and stator w/pickup (caltric) were purchased and installed. And it RAN, but bogged horribly and would not rev past 1/4 throttle. 
      I checked fuel flow, vacuum lines, all the normal stuff, no issues. I decided to check the valves and cam... well, there was one problem. The cam was 1mm under the lowest spec in the manual. So, in-came a new cam, Stage 1 Hotcams... also threw in a new set of shindy valves, lapped them, replaced the valve seals, and the timing chain. 
      Back together again (w/stock airbox and new oiled filter). Now it idles even better, still boggs at 1/4 throttle, but will rev past it if you hold the throttle open for a second. Ahaha... success!
      So I was able to ride it above 1/4 throttle once I had momentum... could shift through the gears, all was good as long as I kept it over 1/2 throttle. Took a long enough ride to break in the cam properly at least so I won't have to worry about that. 
      Now, I start fiddling with the carb. It's clean as a whistle, stock, with stock jets (new replacement Mikuni jets). Same problem. 
       
      I start thinking, maybe this is fuel related and the bike is having an issue transitioning from idle jet to main jet... so I LOWER the needle by raising the clip 1 spot. Now it revvs up in neutral with no bog, but it boggs about the same trying to ride it. So I move the needle down again with the clip on the top slot. Better, but still has a bit of bog at 1/4 throttle. 
      The last bit of advice I got was to ditch the CV carb... so I sprung for a brand new Mikuni VM30-83 round-slide. Bolted it up, blew into the vacuum tube to fill it with fuel (no vacuum port on this one) and she fired right up... but there is still a bit of bog, it's just masked by the fact that I'm not waiting for the vacuum diaphragm to open. 
       
      So I feel like each little step brings me closer, but not perfect. I'm now wondering if this is still in-fact a carb tuning issue (I have some jets I can fiddle with and maybe lean-out the idle jet a little.) OR if the cheap-a** Caltric Stator/Pickup is what's causing these issues. 
       
      I have a 95' KingQuad with 400 miles on it... like new.. runs like a top... I've tried both the stock QR and the Caltric CDI boxes on it, and it revvs up and runs like a champ. 
       
      The only unknowns between the two systems are the carb, and the stator/pickup. My next step in troubleshooting is to rip apart the King Quad and test it's CDI on the Quadrunner... but considering there is no change to how it runs I doubt it will lead to a solution. 
       
      HOWEVER... I tried the stock CDI just recently after running the Caltric this whole time, and the bike runs like garbage. Hardly idles, and won't rev up at all. So, that is my one smoking gun telling me that it's either the pickup coil or the stator itself. 
       
      Has anyone had a problem even CLOSE to this? I can't image the carb would be causing this many issues, especially going to 2 different ones, both with stock jetting to OEM, and exhibiting the identical symptoms... the only change is when different CDI's are plugged in, or when the needle valve leans out the mixture. 
      Also, I checked the piston, rings and bore when I had it apart and they're like-new... no scoring, rings are loose, cylinder is still round and has honing marks still int he bore. Stock piston, stock bore size and it has 160psi compression. Battery is brand new, and I've tried 3 different R/R's, none of which change any symptoms, but slightly vary the charging voltage by .2-.5 of a volt depending on which unit. Also tried a new coil which changed nothing. 
      ANY help would be appreciated. Too much invested to not get it running right.

      I loosened the allen bolts on the carrier and when I went to put my driver in the alot to pull back and tighten the chain, I noticed the holes were facing the front of the bike. I tried to slide a driver in and tighten the chain but the thing would not budge. I nearly ripped the tip off the driver in the slot. Any suggestions?
