2007 Suzuki Vinson blowing ignition fuse HELP!!!!!

Recommended Posts

I have a 2007 Suzuki Vinson 500, Semi-Auto, 4X4. I was riding it last winter in a couple inches of snow and a little ice. It ran perfect for a few hours and then starting a slight backfire for about 15 minutes I noticed the over heating light was on so I got ready to shut it off and before I could it shut off by itself. I let it cool down for about 3 hours then i went to restart it I got nothing, the display screen was completely blank and only the back light was on. I then checked the fuses and noticed the ignition fuse was blown I believe it was a 10 or 15 amp fuse so I replaced it then started it up it ran for about 5 minutes then cut off and blew the fuse again. I tried several times throughout the day giving it about an hour in between each start. After about 5 trys i put a 30 amp fuse in and still did the same thing. I let it sit for a couple days to dry everything out and tried again same thing blew the ignition fuse after about 5 minutes. So I then took apart all the electrical connections cleaned them and dried them and then once again tried and blew the ignition fuse. I do not know what could be causing this and havent been able to find any others with this issue. If anyone could be of any help I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

The first thing you need to do is check all the wiring and switches for damage, or loose connections. It is likely that you have a dead short in the circuitry somewhere. A multimeter will be helpful when trying to chase down electrical problems like this. You may also want to try testing your ignition components, if you have a service manual, there will be some direct resistance tests you can perform on some of the components. If you don't have a service manual, I would strongly recommend purchasing one.

      I'm trying to troubleshoot a starting issue. For a while, maybe a year sometimes I would hit the starter button and I'd hear a single loud click, but the starter wouldn't turn. Usually if I could pull the pull start or roll it in gear it would then start. (now I'm thinking that was coincidence) Now it only clicks. I tried to check what I could, battery is good, solenoid clicks strong, cleaned all connections (which were 80% clean anyway). I started thinking the starter wasn't spinning. I pulled it and it spins freely. The gear that it contacts in the engine-I can wiggle it maybe 1/16th to 1/8th inch back and forth. When I reinstall the starter I feel it jerk when I hit the button. I'm thinking maybe it's the starter clutch? It seems when there's a problem with them they usually just spin freely and don't engage at all. Is it possibly something is causing it to lock? I'm a bit lost now.

      I have a 98 Polaris Magnum 425. Runs GREAT for 10 minutes then starts to load up (sounds rich) and looses power. Final;ly just stalls out on idle. If it sits 20 minutes will run again.

      replaced fuel, added fuel treatment (seafoam), Replaced plug (carbon fouled), plug wires, air and fuel filter, checked all fuel and vac hoses, REPLACED carb with new. Still no good. Just ordered a coil, not sure if that will help
      Note: both the new and old carb only had the idel adjuster screw - cant find the jet adjustments or air/fuel mix screws so I cannot say how they are set.

      Looking for ideas short of spending big $$ on Polaris service

      HELP?????

      Thanks

      Hi, does anyone know where to find the timing marks on the camshaft and how to orient them? I found the line on the crank and lined it up with the arrow on the case, but the only marks I can see on the cam are on the very end where the black plastic cap is. Are these the timing marks and if so how do you line them up?

      I went out to ride my quad today. When I started it up it ran for a minute, then died. Since then it will turn over but won't start. I've check the spark plug and get great fire. I have had this quad for about 6 months, and very new to breaking it down. But need help. Thanks
