1993 Suzuki kingquad 300 over heating

Recommended Posts

I have a 93 kingquad that I need help with. It over heats and cant figure out why and hoping some one here can help me. Have stuck a few bucks into it and no change. Put the new right jets in it. Exaused rocker. Head gasket. New boot. It runs real nice and drives but after 15 minutes of run time the exuast gets red. I am stuck and dont know where to turn. Hoping someone here has some advise for me. Any thing you can tell me would be great. THanks

What does your spark plug look like? A lean condition is a likey cause. If you are running lean you may need larger jets. Many factors can effect jetting requirements, elevation, temperature, motor mods..... You need to read the plug to determine wheather you are jetted properly. There are other factors that can effect jetting requirements too. Make sure the carb is clean. Check for air leaks in the intake plumbing, if you are sucking in extra air it will run lean and hot. Check the fuel screw adjustment. Check the timing chain and tensioner. Check the valvle lash. Check the oil pump and oil cooler lines.

Hey thanks guys. I have been thinking and tell me if I am off. Not knowing the history is it possible someone put in a bigger piston and the jets that are called out for are not right. And if the timming is aff a bit would it still run and idle good but still get hot? Thanks

Timing could be an issue, it is worth checking. Going up one or two sizes on the piston will have little to no effect on performance or jetting needs. You need to increase bore size by several mm to make a significant difference, most piston replacements are done .5mm at a time. Google "plug chop" reading the plug is the best way to determine correct jetting. Check everything I mentioned in my first reply. If you have a lean condition, due to an air leak, dirty carb, incorrect jetting or adjustment, you could burn your motor up in no time.

      I cannot get this drum off, I already have another drum and backplate on order because I've ruined this one trying to get it off. Completely rusted to splines. I cant fit any hub or wheel puller known to mankind onto these lug studs to try and pull it off, I'm really running out of ideas.

      I'm working on a 95 300 kingquad and wondering about the aftermarket carbs. There sure is a price spread -is the OEM recommended or is 'cheap' ok.Off shore are way cheaper but is the quality that bad

      Hey Guys, 
      I picked up my first ever ATV on friday. It's an 89 Big Bear. It has some cosmetic issues, but seems pretty decent mechanically. I did have trouble getting the idle tuned to the book spec of 1,300 - 1,500 RPM. I took the carb apart and cleaned it out. Somebody must have lost the spring for the pilot screw, as it's no longer in the carb. Also, I have a dual cable carb, I noticed all the IPL's show the single cable carb, but I see others on youtube had dual cable carbs. When I would adjust my idle speed screw, nothing would happen. I bottomed it out and it didn't seem to make much if any difference. When i pulled the carb apart I saw the screw doesn't even touch the linkage, it's too short. Do the two different versions have different length carb screws? I'm wondering if somebody lost the ordinal, replaced it with the IPL number for a single cable carb which is shorter, and gave up on getting the ATV to idle. If you hold the throttle just a bit to get it to the RPM range listed above, it "idles" great. Any ideas? Or any links to the dual cable IPL?
      Have you guys have good luck with the aftermarket intake boots? Or is this a buy once, cry once deal? I'm guessing the OEM units last longer, but there is a huge price difference. If you have had good luck with aftermarket, where did you get it? My current boot doesn't seem to have any air leaks, but it's encased in JB weld... 
      I'm getting a 9th digit check sum error on the ATV when I put the VIN in. Has anybody seen this before on a Yamaha? The VIN  number looks original as well as the paint around it. 
       
      Thanks,

      I have a kq 450 4x4 that I an have a problem with.the bike does not want to move.i am not very familiar with the sheave or clutch that it has on it.my buddy who owned it beat on it prolly never maintained it just so that's out there. The belt is fairly new primary and secondary clutchs are pretty ruff looking the rollers are toast I think but idk. Everything moves fine except for the primary it moves but does not push in to move the belt only at a high rpm will it move sometimes any clue on what it could be other then going out to spend 6 or 7 hundred on a whole new assembly of the clutchs
