Welcome to QUADCRAZY. How long has it been sitting for? Have you checked the air filter under the seat?

My money is on a sheared woodruff key, you will have spark, just not at the right time. I guess it is just as likely that you need to adjust your vavles, or there is some kind of malfunction with the decompression mechanism on the exhuasut cam, either way, if I am right you owe me $1,000,000.00. You can send that to my paypal account.

In my experience usually backfires are caused by a lean condition or timing, like dirt demon said, woodruff key, stator, electrical issue, fuel delivery issue. are you sure it has enough fuel ? like is the sparkplug wet ? also, i would check your timing chain, your piston may be going up and down but your cams not opening the valves or they skipped a tooth. could also be water in the gas, alot of water, but hey, it could happen...

Hello Im a new member and I have an 07 King 700 that just cut off while i was ridin across the yard...It turns over and the new plug is firing, the injector pulses, i had the valves reshimmed by a friend, it doesn't seemed to have jumped time and i borrowed my friends 700 to swap the computer and none of these things helped...it will backfire once in a while when you are trying to start it...im lost...what kind of woodruff key were you referring to in the older post? Any help would be great...my next move is gonna be to pull the stator cover and take a closer look at the timing chain.

The woodruff key is under the stator cover, so you are already heading to the right place. It is there to keep the flywheel in the correct spot for proper ignition timing.

      Hi, I'm a newbie on here.  I just got a 2007 Suzuki KingQuad LT-A450X.  Are there any specific issues to look for on this model?  Any specific maintenance to do other than the usual oil and filter changes?

      Just bought 06 KingQuad 700 and first ride out hit a mud hole, not to deep and it shut off and would not start. 
      Got it home and found the spark plug hole was full of mud and water. Went and bout a new spark plug and began cleaning it out. Put a deep socket in there and it wouldn’t grab. Took a pic with my flash and this is what I see. Any suggestions? And what is it??
      previous owner said it had a new coil so that’s why I decided to change out the spark plug, also ordered new coil should be here by the weekend.

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?
