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 working on my brothers' 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 . It sat for a few years before I got into it. I'm concentrating on the carb - I replaced orings, needle, etc. and soaked jets, bowl and anything that I could get off the carb that the solution wouldn't eat. I also removed the tank and flushed it with hot water - it's clean. The gas cap innards rusted away and the tank had a lot of rust and water in it before I cleaned it. I replaced the gas cap and installed a new fuel valve because the screens were broken in the old one. The bike will run but spits and sputters and backfires. If you "open it up" it falls on its face and stalls - but starts right up. Here is a link to an exploded view of the carb: Ohio Honda Yamaha Motorcycle ATV Dealer - J & J Motors - Kawasaki Suzuki Scooter Utility vehicle, parts, accessories, apparel
      Can anyone point me in the direction of the problem? It may still be a "clean carb parts issue" . My problem is that the parts list doesn't identify the parts to a degree that I understand. If you said" look at the pilot jet", I'm not sure which jet that would be....See what I mean? It'll run very good if I remove the air filter and cover the opening with my hand and part my fingers a little for the air to get in. Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance, Jim

      i know this isnt an atv but same type of thing.  I have a riding mower im fixing and selling for my aunt and it has a dead battery.  i jumped it off my atv and when i turn the key nothing at all happens.  i tried jumping the relay still nothing.  this is with the seat down.  you wouldnt think this mower would have issues as its a top-of-the-line brand and almost brand new (aunt found it for a good price, still got tits on tires, just sat for a couple months in a mechanic shop

      Hello,
      I'm new to the site.  My son and I have decided to bring back our old quad from the dead.  Does anyone know where we can purchase a cylinder kit for it.  I think it's a 1986, but will have to check the VIN to be sure.
      The last time it ran, it was tapping and smoking pretty bad.
      Any help would be appreciated.
      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
