hi: no where it gos into the fuel shut-off valve, i use the worm-gear type clamps, on all the fuel hose connections. this fuel line fitting, connector, is made of aluminium,. and fits or pushes back into the fuel shut-off valve,. and then you push your fuel hose, onto it. and then slip a clamp, onto the hose,. the problem that i am having right now. is when you push the fuel fitting connector, into the fuel shut-off valve, it will not hold in place in the fuel shut-off valve., that is where the fuel is leaking. thanks

Drain the fuel, clean the connection and apply a slight amount of RTV Silicone to the fitting, then clamp it with a real hose clamp. Make sure you let it dry and be careful not to get any inside the fuel line. Drying time should be a day+, then add fuel.

If that does not work replace the fuel hose it may be stretched.

Fuel vale body to inlet tube leakage is usually a bad vale assy. I've fixed mine empty or tilt tank a good cleaning of both the body inlet and fitting spray with brake cleaner and epoxy it back in place being care full of getting any epoxy inside clamp it in lightly, wait at least 48 hours before putting in fuel. beware it's not ,necessarily a safe way to go but it will hold until you get a new assy. I've had mine last for years but i wouldn't sell it that way.

      Hello everyone! I recently purchased this quad for a mere 300.00 and it is pretty clean for the year. I bought it from a guy who bought it in a storage unit. He didn’t know anything about it. I got it home and noticed it did not have an ignition coil for the spark plug. I bought the ignition coil, a new battery, new CDI box, new starter relay, new safety neutral relay, new carb and so on... I got it to turn over, but when I pull the plug and check for spark I have nothing.. it has a non factory starter button that works when I push it and turns the engine over no matter if the key or stop switch is on or off..not sure what that’s all about, but it does turn over..just no spark at the plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      What's going on party people? First, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to be here. I recently purchased a 2005 yrs 450 and have yet to run the bike at full throttle. The bike fires up, idles, seems like everything runs fine except a little popping when you let off the throttle or until you hit 5th gear. It runs strong; no bogging or sluggishness until you hit 4th gear and open it up. Then it begins to act like it's out of gas or the about to be out. I can pull over and sit for 5-10 min and it runs strong again until you open the throttle. I have the carb off the bike to clean and wrote down a list of factory and what I found installed. I also listed other key factors and hope someone can help and explain. I'm new to the scene and have no prior mechanical experience but my theory is worst case scenario I have to take it to the shop anyway so why not learn. I actually enjoy it. Lol. Thanks a million. Hope to get back on the trails soon.

      I have a 1999 Sportsman  500, it was running fine, than started to lose power in the winter, I adjusted the idle screw and away I went, than a few weeks ago it died, I have found that i am flooding the engine, compression was at 70PSI and due to the compression release mech. i assume i am good as it compared to the same PSI on a 2000 sportsman 500 i have. i cannot start the atv unless i go full throttle and it starts an runs for about 30 sec than dies, again it is flooded. i ordered a new carb off ebay as i could get one for around $40. put that in same issue, i have checked the timing, (good), valves out of adjustment i adjusted to .006 still same issue, i have found the exhaust lobe and rocker arm to have some wear, i have ordered new ones, but am looking for any other input in this area as well. would the exhaust cam and rocker arm cause the engine to flood? i have used a bore scope and the piston liner has good cross hatching still? any input would be great.

      This past spring, Jonathan worked on a 1991 QuadRunner 250 that came with the fuel pump removed. We didn't find good information about connecting it online, so we made a video.
      Below is the link to watch Jonathan describe the connections on the Suzuki fuel pump. This applies to both the Quadrunner and King Quad ATV models.
       
      Hope you find it informative!
