2007 Suzuki King Quad 700 4WD Light On, Oil Burning

Recommended Posts

OK i had an 05 king quad 700 up untill last year, i owned it for 3 years and it was the best machine i ever owned. i sold it only because i was buying a house and needed the money to put down, after getting settled in and finances back in order i had to go buy another one. unfourtinatly i jumped on the first " Good Deal " i came across and man im paying for it. bought an 07 king quad 700 with 1300 miles on it, came with a plow, winch and a nice wheel kit for $3,500. i jumped on it took it for a test ride and mechanicly everything seemed good, cosmeticly it is pretty scratched and you could tell it was well ridden but everything seemed to work just fine

I took it home and rode it for about a week with no problems and decided to get some beefier springs, some skid plates, and a few misc parts for it as well as change all the fluids since the guy i bought it from i doubt did much maitenence.

after putting it all back together my 4wd light is on on the display but the 4wd will not engage. the light just stays on and if i put the dif lock switch up it just blinks??? it was working perfectly before i took it apart but i did nothing with any of the drive train, checked the dif fluids but they seemed clean and full so i left them alone. any suggestions, ive tested the switch and relay and both seem to be working ok

next problem

I changed the oil and now every time the machine sets for 2 or more days it smokes like crazy when i start it. it will do this for 10-15 seconds then clears up and has no sign of burniung anything or smoking or anything, only at first when it sits for a few days. its definetly an oil smoke, i checked to make sure i didnt over fill it and double checked everything...im lost....

any help with either problem would be great

I would get more input on this but with a car if it smokes on start up and goes away it's valve seals in most cases which lets oil leak into the cylinder. Some one on here may know something other than valve seals. Did you happen to unplug any connections while changing out the springs. look at your front diff and follow any wiring comming from it and make sure it's connected good.

yea thats kinda what i suspected with the oil but it was just weird how it didnt do it untill i changed the oil

as far as the 4wd, ive traced everything, all plugs are where there supposed to be, pulled all of them apart and cleaned them and put in some die electric grease, pulled apart the switch box on the throttle and made sure it was all in tact and cleaned, unplugged the battery, tested power coming to and from the relay and everything seems to be doing what it should, i just dont know much about the difs on these and dont want to start pulling that apart unless ive got some advice to go by.

i downloaded the service manual but thats not much help as far as troubleshooting the 4wd

I have an 02 prairie 650 in 03 kawasaki added a belt light to let you know when their was a problem with the belt. Mine on the other hand flashes between 2wd & 4wd. If the Suzuki is anything like the prairie. Also check the front actuator if it has one on the front diff. On the prairie I was able to take mine off and start my quad and flip my switch to see if it rotated. I ended up having diff problems instead. I have over 2,000 miles on mine. I'm sure someone will be able to help you better than me on here so don't give up.

Great machine, I used to own a 2005 700 myself. I'm not sure about the light except that if it wasn't happening before, it's probably a direct result of the replacement parts. How much higher is it sitting and is there any info at the aftermarket parts website on this happening?

As far as the oil, I agree that in a car, valve stem seals were always to blame on gm motors especially, and in this case, have you checked the air filter? It's sucking oil into the combustion chamber.

How does the spark plug look? Once you run the quad if you restart it any other time during the day does it smoke or only after it sits for a couple of days? Did you check the air filter as Ajmboy said & what did it look like?

the springs are highlifter springs and after installing them i put my stock wheels back on and parked it next to my buddys stock 06 kq 700 and its only about an inch taller but is definatly a much nicer stiffer ride.

as far as any other aftermarket parts it was just misc stuff like hand gaurds, HID headlights, and moose alluminum skid plates but nothing that would have any mechanical effect on anything

ive gone up and down the 4wd electronics and im not seeing anything that may have come unpluged, pinched or shorted out in any way. Ive heard other people on different quads have similar issues and they said theres a way that it may have not fully engaged before the machine was shut off and it confuses the system and theres a way to jump a 12v power to the actuator to get it moving again but i dont know where to start as far as doing that

My prairie got stuck in 4wd it ended up being a shaft & the gear that engages inside the diff. My switch and everything else was working but my 2wd 4wd light switched modes like it should but the quad stayed in 4wd. Like I mentioned I pulled my actuator I did forget I jacked it up off the ground all for wheels and ran the quad as it was running I flipped the switch to see if the actuator was working. I know it sounds like a lot to go thru but I was able to see that the actuator was working. It ruled out everything but the diff. My actuator has a small block of metal that slides a collier the block was worn down but was not the problem. I could manual slide the collier and it stayed in 4wd. Thats what I went thru to find out it was the diff.

Have you solved the light and actuator problem? I have the same stuff going on with my 2008 700 kq. The 2wd will not engage and activating the diff lock makes the light on the display start blinking.

If you mean the differential lock light blinks, it means its stuck in transition. The actuator has been commanded but has not moved to position. First thing is to check wiring and clean connections to it.

Ive never taken one out. Manual says it comes off after diff removal. Can you pull the actuator out far enough to disengage the shaft from the diff? Good news on the lights at least. You`re getting close to the answer. There is an electric motor on it that looks like it can be removed. Don`t know whats in there. Could be springs, shims, and switch contacts that might fall lose. Your call if you want to try that.

      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,
      Oddly I'm having  a hard time ordering front brake shoes for my '98. 
      I'd appreciate recommendations on decent, widely available shoes if possible. Ideally available in Canada on short notice.
       
      Thanks much,

      I've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?

      Hi everyone! I have a 1986 yamaha moto4 200 that's been sitting for a while! Cleaned the carb, replaced engine oil, put fresh gas in it. Got it running and went for a ride! It was running great just a little backfire once in a while! I barely made it home on the way back and now the bike won't run at all since then! It will start if I give a little bit of throttle but dies instantly as soon as I let go off the throttle! And even if I try to rev it up it'll sound like its not getting enough gas.. it revs up a couple hundred rpm's and backfires through the carb.. it almost sounds as if I was trying to take off from zero in 5th gear! Nothing is seized though! I dissasembled the head and the piston and cylinder are fine! Rebuilt the carb, replaced the ignition source coil.. I don't know what to do anymore.. compression test shows 90 psi Specs are 128 psi but i'm not sure if I trust my compression tester.. any ideas? Thanks!!

      I took apart the carburator to clean out and I can't remember exactly where the springs that are inside the float are supposed to go I've tried to look up schematics but I think I am missing a spring maybe need helpt:confused::confused:

      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.
