1991 QuadRunner slips out of 4wd

Recommended Posts

I have the 250 QuadRunner which slips out of 4wd with selector in 4wd position. In diff lock position there is NO slipping. Selector arm on diff seems to be in sync with control lever/selector. Pops out and goes right back in and is worse pulling a load. Any ideas?

Thanks

I wish I could give a more specific guess as to what seems to be wrong, but it seems to me that the primary engagement mechanism for the front diff is worn somehow. Could be a sloppy bearing allowing too much movement and bumping the diff out of engagement with the input shaft. There are alot of possible causes from what I can tell, but I don't know alot about how these machines work. This particular 4wd system that Suzuki uses is unlike any I have ever seen. Somehow, it seems that locking the diff keeps that engagement intact. The way I would go about figuring out the problem if it were my machine is - (A) buy a repair manual and look through the diagrams of the front diff and 4wd system, check out the troubleshooting guide to try and get an idea of what might be going wrong before I - (B) Take the front diff apart and look for visual evidence of damaged or worn components. Hopefully someone with some knowledge of this particular drive system will chime in with some more helpful info. Until then, good luck.

Thanks Josh, we use this machine almost exclusively as a work horse. Hate to have it down for any period of time, but I guess we are going to have to dig into it. Good project for my 12/14 yr old sons and myself.

Thanks so much,

Chadwick

      Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black

      Bike is L model

      I just got an old YFM200DX Moto 4 and upon checking the oil in the rear differential I took out I assume the fill plug and it fished out old nasty oil. I plan on flushing the oil and replacing but was wanting to make sure if you drain bottom plug and just fill up to the check plug. Only thing I can think of someone filled it up by the breather on top? Plan on unhooking the hose and blowing it out tomorrow. I also do not have a service manual yet. Also right now the diff vent hose just goes up under the tank to nothing. Does it plug into back hole in the air box? Thanks

      recently picked up some project bikes off CL for cheap.  got a honda fourtrax (the ancient 4x4 kind with the straight axle in the front as well as the rear and a back-up kick-start)  plastics are crap, but my goal is to get running like a champ and patch the plastics up and sell to one of my many friends that want a reliable 4x4 for dirt cheap and doesnt care what it looks like.
      so the former owner says it needs carb rebuilt, but its sat for 3+ years since so who knows.  things I see:  carb is missing (he gave me a box of parts along with the bike), engine turns over and feels good with kick-start, brakes need work, battery missing (That always puts me off, cause then I know most likely someone's been tampering with the electrical.

      I posted earlier looking for a wiring diagram, but maybe someone can help me with the problem if they’ve had it before. 
       
      The quad Will start and idle ok, when I open the throttle it will rev all the way up until WOT and then it dies back down to idle, and if I keep the throttle wide open it will rev back up. It will do this over and over and over. 
       
      I replaced the carb, (twice), Rectifier, battery, and spark plug.  The Stator ohmed out to the proper specs from dinli.  The other issue i can see is I’m not getting 12v on the choke circuit. The lights don’t work either. 
       
      possible bad key switch? Maybe the new rectifier is bad? All the contacts on the key switch also ohm out properly    
      comprsssion is up to 125 psi and spark is there. 
       
      Reed valves look great.....
       
      im at a loss. Any trouble shooting advice would be appreciated.

      I have an older 1980s Suzuki quadrunner red lt 4wd (250)
      so just finished putting it all back together and was running fine just needed to adjust the rebuilt carb
      bf decides to hook up an air chuck to the gas tank because it got a shot of air in the gas line well 120psi didn’t agree with any of the parts including the new carb 
      end result : new battery new carb now it just clicks (one single click) won’t turn over 
      hard to pull start gets hung up (unless I remove the spark plug ) gas flooded out the first time but now does nothing purchases a new starter waiting the arrival 
      could there be damage to the crank shaft or pistons etc? Or install the new starter and try to fire it up ? What caused the starter to die after he flooded everything with gas was working fine. 
      Thank you

      Anyone familiar with these models? Its a new to me quad, picked it up for basically nothing... Just time and materials now, this looks expensive.
