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 guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      So Id say about 2 years back I bought a 2013 Polaris Sportsman 500 H.O. off of my uncle. It ran perfectly, nothing wrong at all. I usually go mudding with it or just ride trails with buddies. So as you would assume, the quad is quite dirty from sitting for a few weeks.
       
      STUTTERING PROBLEM: I noticed one day out of nowhere that in high gear at 15-20 MPH, I was already maxed out at 4500-5000 RPM  It would get to 15-20 mph, max out on rpms and start sputtering. It sounded like it was basically acting like it couldn’t go any faster than this.
       
      IDLING PROBLEM: I was fucking with the carberator the other day maybe thinking that is causing my sputtering, and now my idle will shoot up to 2600 on start usually, then I will turn the throttle adjustment down to the normal 1400. The rpms with then fluctuate 10-30 rpms back and forth repeatedly, it will then run for about another 30-60 seconds and the RPMs will slowly drop to about 900-1000 RPM and stall out. I replaced the carburetor and everything seems to be working perfect on that, no leaks and what not but it’s still acting strange. Also, I’ve noticed that when looking into the Electronic Throttle Control that two plates that aren’t supposed to touch have to be WAY past touching to even try to fire up. Even when set at a wide open throttle like that, I still have to give it some throttle to get it to fire up.
       
      Here is what I have done so far: 
      Checked the belt and clutch
      Changed out spark plug (Last one was covered in carbon)
      Cleaned the intake and air box
      Replaced the carburetor
      Replaced the inline fuel filter
      Checked that all lines on carburetor are connected into the right spots
      Checked If intake boot was cracked (Not from what I can see)
      Unhooked and reattached new carburetor (About 4-5 times)
      Cleaned battery terminals and battery off
      Shut on and off Gas Line Cutoff Valve
       
       
       
      My next thoughts are that maybe the TPS is fucked up or maybe the Spark Arrestor is plugged with mud. I was thinking tomorrow to purge the exhaust and also check the ohms output on the TPS.
       
      ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. I HAVE BEEN BATTLING THIS FOR WEEK AND REALLY WANT TO GO RIDING. THANK YOU!

      Hey everyone, hoping to get some help here... my kids 03 KTF 50 Quad has always ran great... they were riding it a couple of hours a few days ago and it died a couple of times (not normal) but started right back up. A few days later my 5 year old wanted to take it for a spin so I started it (2 pulls) and he took off.. he made it a couple hundred yards and it died and we havnt been able to start it since. I have new gas, good spark and 120 psi compression.. it will not start with starter fluid in the intake or even in the cylinder.. the fuel bowl has fuel at the carb... what am I missing? It’s driving me crazy!!
