1998 Suzuki King Quad Not Running

Recommended Posts

Crank case keeping filling up with gas. Exhaust pipe right at the jug gets cherry red. I just had this given to me. So I'm trying to get it running.... Any idea's ? I'm thinking the main float is stuck in the carb allowing the fuel to just gravity feed into the cyl. and down into the crank. HELP...... Please. It's a clean quad, I'd like to get it running.:aargh:

More info year of quad motor size. It sounds like you can get it to start based on you saying the pipe gets red. Is this right.

1998 suzuki.... Yes if I blow out the cyl. put the plug back in it will start. Idles rough, pops when I give it throttle. I can watch the sight glass fill up with fuel as it runs. Can it be a bad head ? has the ohc on it with the decompression lever too. Thanks.

Just talked to the neighbor that was getting rid of it, he's had it for 7 years and it never ran. When I drained the crank case it had over 3 gals. of gas and oil mixed in it. From what I've read it only needs 3.7 quarts of oil for the crank case. But again, as I run it, I can watch the level go up in the sight glass.

Was it setting up for while? If so I would say the carb needs to be taken apart and cleaned. They get I guess you could say gummed up inside. I don't feel it would be the head. How does the spark plug look after you run it. Is it wet with gas or oil. Lets see what some other people on here may think. I would not want to go by just what I say. If others agree then that would be the way to go. Get the carb cleaned & then I would change the oil before starting it.

If you got it running after that many years thats a good start. If it has set that long the carb will need cleaning. I would go futher rebuilt. Did you buy it or did he give it to you?

He gave it to me, he was going to take it to the scrap yard. I know it's around a 6,000.00 dollar ride. so I don't mind putting some $$$$ in to it.

I think you need to rebuild that carb and make sure your air intake is good and not restricted.

Again, if something seems starved for gas it prob. is...and then look toward carb. If it runs then gets hot, coil. Seems we have had several carb and coil issues lately. Hope you get the beast runnin my friend!

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Hi I just got an Polaris sportsman 500 4x4 ATV the other day. I got it real cheap but I started to go into it because it didn't have compression so I bought a new piston and ring kit for it and installed it, but now when I try to start it all it does is shoot fire out the exhaust or the intake of the carburetor. And a timing is top dead center.;I think I can't really tell another way if it is or not. when I put it together I made sure to piston was on top and the cam lobes where facing down where are the cam sprocket is facing up. It has gas and spark. It did start a couple minutes ago but it didn't stay running and now it won't start. Do you think the valve need to be adjusted more to close better?I'm fixing to try that out and if that don't work what is the problem? Also I made sure everything was together good and right and change the oil and changed out the radiator fluid.

      Rincon was stuck in 4x4 so we cleaned the sludge out of the diff, put fresh oil in and all is well.

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.

      I recently picked up a king quad 700 that doesn't run in the hopes of getting it running by spring. It had been previously taken apart some and a few pieces are missing in the engine, but the frame is complete and in good condition. The motor will need a piston, rings, cylinder, cams, and a few misc parts that are missing. Also the cases will need to be split to remove the pieces of piston that are in the crankcase. The piston blew up at high rpm and did a number on the cylinder so I'm trying to find out if it would be worth rebuilding this motor it buying another engine to swap in. There may be more damage to this engine that I can see so I was wondering how bad the insides of it could be considering it destroyed the piston. I have found a motor for 1200 plus 200 shipping, the only problem is I don't have that much now and I would have to save up a while before being able to afford it. Any suggestions appreciated.

      Can you put tracks on manual atvs? would it be effective? is 280cc enough to even move them? thoughts/suggestions?
