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.

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.

      Hello everyone !
      I'm currently rebuilding my carburetor on my Yamaha moto 4 350 1987, first time I rebuild a carb 😅 ! It was leaking fuel from the overflow and inside the intake ....
      When I took off needle (the platic top part was stuck like crazy) I had a spring and inside the kit there is a spring, an O-Ring and a washer. 
      Left is the needle that was in the carburetor and right is the new set (I already tried to mount it but it didn't felt right and I accidentally broke the o-ring)
      Anyway, I saw in some videos and diagram that there is no spring in here. So should I put the spring back ? And where ? On top of the needle or bottom ?

      This is an original Mikuni carb :

      Thank you ! Also if you have any additionnal tips please feel free to share I want to learn the proper way !

      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

      I'm new to this sport and would like to replace the factory tires on my 1995 Polaris Scrambler 4 x 4.  Any suggestions and where is the best place to get them would be appropriated.

      I have a 2005 Suzuki King Quad LT-A700X and the top end needs to be rebuilt. We use this on our ranch everyday and I need to do as quick a rebuild as possible (still runs fairly well). I'm thinking that buying a fully rebuilt head, cylinder/piston, etc. is the way to go. Just wondering if folks have a recommendation on where to buy or what brand of parts (aftermarket, Suzuki) are the better choice.
