Fuel problem 1995 King Quad 300 HELP????

Recommended Posts

I'm helping a friend out...i picked up a king quad 1995 and it's not getting any fuel to the Carb...it has good gas flow threw to the petcock but not going into the Carb....,i took the backing plates off the petcock and Fuel dumped out.....do i have a bad petcock or is there a fuel pump somewhere or filter?I don't have a manual but in the process of getting one...I'm trying to help a friend....the petcock is not letting fuel threw to the carb...Can anyone help? Thanks MUDDIE49

Is that petcock vacuum actuated? It could be a bad petcock. When you start the quad by turning over the engine a vacuum is created in the carb which is piped to the petcock via a rubber hose. This vacuum works on a diaphragm (located in the back of the petcock) to allow gas to flow.

Make usre you are getting vacuum.

there is a fuel pump under the front left hand side on the front guard.

it is driven by the vacum from the motor.

most likely it is not broken! they have a good reputation.

with the 250 and 300 LTF kingquads made by suzuki, when ever you cannot get fuel to the carbi, just put the fuel tap on to prime, then blow in to the fuel cap vent hose (the one sticking out of the fuel cap)

once you clean the dirt off it, blow with your mouth for about 10 seconds with the same sort of pressure you would blow up a baloon.

while you are doing this... crank the bike over with the starter button (to activate the fuel pump)

this is what every motorcycle shop must do to the LTF 250/300 every time they get a new bike out of the crate and fuel it up for the first time.

The LTF seems to have a good pump as far as durability goes, but it is just a little weak when it comes to filling up the carbi when the bike is dry.

if you have any doubt about fuel getting to the carbi, pull off the fuel line (the hose that is going to the carbi with the metal spring protective cover) pull it off the carbi and see how much fuel comes out when you crank the bike over.

I say this because it is no good chasing a fuel pump problem if you only have a dirty carbi that needs cleaning!

Tell us how you go!

Another problem I have seen with vacuum powered fuel pumps is the wrong kind of hose is being used. Regular soft rubber fuel hoses can reduce the signal strength, a the proper hose is a flexible but somewhat stiff hose that will not collapse or expand under vacuum or pressure. But, I would start with what Profil said, there is no use looking past the carb untill you have ruled that out as a problem. A float that is stuck shut will not allow gas to enter the carb, nor will gummed up fuel passages.

Thanks for your responces...I did some tests today and found out the Fuel pump is bad,We have Vaccum going to the Fuel pump, but the outlet hose is not flowing threw to the Fuel shutoff valve...to the carb....so before we head out to buy a new F-pump...i'll try priming it.....thanks Fellers.....MUDDIE49:aargh:

Well....the pump is good....the quad is running , the problem was the quads been sitting so long,i had to prime the fuel system, its running....but the carb needs to be cleaned up....i'm going take the carb off and clean it out jets, pilots etc....replace what needs....otherwise my buddy's pretty happy so far...thanks for all your responces and i'm sure, i'll have more questions as this project goes on..Muddie49

Keep us posted. Maybe the float is stuck from the pivot needle being corroded...

      My four wheeler when i first got it seemed like it was very slow when i first got it and it had no throttle response so i replaced the belt and cleaned all of the rollers thinking that would solve the problem from what i read on the forums. well it turned out that it wasnt. so i went to the next thing i took out the injector to check it out and i seen that there was a tiny bit of debree in it so i cleaned it and it seemed to improve a little bit. but still did not solve the problem. i later found out how to find the trouble codes out from the lcd screen using a paper clip on the diagnostic port and it showed the code which stood for no codes C00. i also forgot to mention that the throttle position censor is working perfect. before i started all of this the four wheeler ran just not to its potential. after my friend and i did the trouble code test the bike wouldnt even start anymore and the injector would spray for a few seconds for the start up then it stops and the fuel injection light comes on and blinks. the four wheeler wouldnt start anymore. i took it over to the local shop and they hooked it up to the computer to see if there was any codes and it still showed it was free of codes. they hooked it up to the fuel pressure gauge and we found that it was making 22 pounds and it should be making around 43. i then bought a new fuel pump and put it in. it now starts and runs for a few seconds and then it stalls out and the fuel injection light comes on again. which then leads me to think it is the ecu now but i want to be sure before i invest around $500 more into it. any opinions on whether or not anyone thinks this is the problem or if they have had a similar problem before would be really appreciated. sorry for writing a novel and not spelling very well. also i forgot to put the year in the title it is a 2007

      Hi there everyone. Just seeing if there is advice on a problem I have before I start digging too deep. 
      I recently bought this creally nice 2004 King quad ltf300 with only 2400km..
      Everything things works great except when engaged into 4wd or diff lock it has a clicking noise ( sounds like broken teeth etc) are the front diffs known to blow?  Or the transfer from engine?
      I am yet to test on some loose ground to see if I'm getting drive at front .
      I will be driving in to find problem in next few weeks but thought I'd see if anyone might know what it is first. Cheers

      Went shopping on Saturday, picked up another Kawasaki Bayou 220 and a Yamaha Timber Wolf 250
      I really should sell some of these but they are a lot of fun to find, fix and ride
      Of course neither of them run but that's part of the fun!  Az

      I have a 1988 300 Honda FourTrax, All wheel drive.
      My brother and I were fixing up this quad. We put a brand new battery and fuses in and it was running fine until we put the quad into reverse. As soon as it was put into reverse all of the electrical cut out and power wasn't making it to the head unit anymore and both of the brand new fuses popped. We figured there might have been a short from the starter or solenoids, but they are all working properly. At this point we don't know where to start looking for where the short could be. I'm just wondering if anybody has had the same issue or knows of similar issues that could cause these electrical shorts?
