2005 Suzuki King Quad 700 - Oil burning?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

I am the owner of a 2005 Kingquad 700 with 10251 km (6370 miles). I bought this ATV one year ago. Since I have this ATV, I have a high oil consumption. 20 fl.OZ each 150 miles.

Therefore I decided to change the piston rings and also the valve seals. The ring clearance was out of tolerance.

I did not change the piston and the cylinder. The clearance of the new rings are in the tolerance.

After the change of the rings and seals the problem seems not to be solved. :aargh:

The oil consumption is still the same. :mad:

The problem is that the ATV is not smoking blue (like oil burning).

The sparkplug is coffe brown in the middle and black outside. The spark plug is completely dry.

The coolant has a normal colour. No oil inside.

There is no oil leak.

The airbox is dry.

The engine is starting and running normally!!!!

I change also the oil type: 10W40 -> 10W50

Where is the oil going? I am sure that the oil is burned but why is the ATV not smoking blue ??? With this high oil consumption, I expected that the ATV smokes blue or the engine wouldn t run properly.

My next step would be to change piston and cylinder....

I am confused and it would be helpful if somebody have a good idea.

Do you mean 20w50? I've never heard of 10w50. If it's not burning it has to be leaking somewhere. :yes:

Hello Oxidized,

The valves were dirty (oily), specialy the exhaust valves. I cleaned the valves and the valves seats (with grinding paste) completely.

Did you machine the cylinder sleeve when you changed the rings? If not the rings might not of seated correctly possibly leading to oil slipping past the rings and being burned. Im not familiar with this atv but i would assume its water cooled. Maybe you have a bad head gasket too

      Hi,
      Have a 2005 grizzly 660. Just recently started backfiring and showing incorrect speed. Lifted seat and messed with wire going to starter relay, it stops for a bit but seems to come back.
      I ended up pulling all the pins out of the connector for the relay and added new pin/connectors for all 4 wires. fixed it for a little bit but came back shortly after. This was a new starter relay i installed a few months ago. Anyone know if a bad starter relay would do this?

      Hello! I picked up a YFM400 and I would love to talk shop with knowledgeable co-owners, and I'd love input about the machine from anyone here who clearly knows more than I do! Cheers from NY

      I am a new atv owner...I bought a used atv this summer (pretty sure it is a wolverine but reg card from last owner didnt actually say that so idk for sure). It ran great for most the summer and early fall but one day I tried starting it and it turned over a while without starting and then suddenly it quit turning over at all. No click or anything.
      I charged battery and light turns on showing neutral and heatlight can go on.
      A few other things that may be pertinent: The pull start is missing, I have a fluke multimeter but not many other advanced tools (or relevant experience), there is an extra aftermarket led light attached to front but it doesnt work either... never looked into why since I didnt need it. 
      I looked for a fuse box and didnt find one.
      Please recommend some easier things to try first as I really want to avoid taking it in if I can (having one income and 4 kids can keep out extra cash, plus I want to learn). Pictures would be awesome if possible. Thanks!

      It's time to replace the shocks and struts.  Looking for some stiffer springs than the OEM as I use this for farm work and I put heavy loads on the rear and haul small trailers frequently.  I've seen a couple aftermarket offerings that say they're 10% or so heavier duty.  Any other options for something a little stronger / stiffer?  Thanks.

      Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....
      Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)
      What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean
      other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....
      So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters
      in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....
      Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically
      DECLINED!
      I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....
      One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?
      Thanks!
      -TD
