1987 Suzuki LT230E choke lever position

Recommended Posts

Dear forum members, I recently purchased a 1987 LT230E Quadrunner and it didn't come with a owners manual. My question is what position does the choke lever need to be in to start a cold engine? Pushed up or down? Is there a way to adjust the choke? I have a Clymers repair manual but nothing is mentioned ablut the choke for the chain driven model. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Not sure on that model, but typically when the quad is cold, you turn the choke on to level it off while it starts, then after it reaches operating temperature, you shut it more off...as long as everything is working properly.

I understand the function of the choke and its use for starting a cold engine. I just dont know if the choke is on when the choke lever is pushed up or down.

Choke is off when pushed away from you and on when pull towards you .I don't believe there is any adjustment . But the choke lever and choke plunger must move smoothly .The choke plunger assm. frequently need to be replaced. Beware !tighten choke to carb nut gently they love to crack.or cross thread.

      Anyone know what the fuse terminal marked UNSWITCH  does  .  Even with the key off it is causing a drain on my battery and I'm trying to figure out  what that terminal goes to.  It's a 10 amp fuse. If I pull it the "short" goes away.  Thanks in advance.

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?

      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
