1997 Suzuki King Quad - Axle/Rear End

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals,

I aquired a 97 King Quad 300 from my dad, it has a few problems but seems to be an ok runner, so Im just trying to decide if its worth sinking a few dollars into or not.

The problems it has are an intermittent electrical problem which I have shorted out, one front axle is really screwed near the tire (shouldnt be a problem fixing that) and only one rear tire spins.

So my question is has any of you guys torn apart the rear end of these things? I had the quad lifte in the air, and the right hand side rear tire spins and there is a little resistance there (that is the one that works) but the left hand side spins really freely.

So Im not familiar with these quads and axles at all, does this just sound like a matter of throwing a new axle in the rear end? Does it sound like something more, and something in the diff let go? Rear axles easy to pull or no?

Ive checked out the diagram on cheapcycleparts, and to me it looks like there could be a lot that could go wrong inside. I plan on ripping the quad apart this winter and repairing the issues, but was hoping to get a little insight if anyone has had these rear ends apart.

Thanks.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes I have found a parts bike to get parts from. I was pondering getting a used front axle, but this guy wants 100 bucks each, and on ebay I can find them for slightly over that.

Regarding the back side not spinning though, Im not sure if its just the axle that a guy needs or what. I know the way to do it is rip it apart and look, and I will yet, just dont have time right now, so was hoping someone has had theirs apart before and tell me that yes, its basically an axle that is the only thing that can cause that symptom, or no it could be this gear etc. that will cost more then the quad is worth!

The wife and I are going to get either a couple of new can ams, king quads or maybe grizzlys in a year and a half, but was hoping to keep this one and my big bear going strong till then!

Ok lemme pick your brain then.. haha

Have you ever had to replace an axle, because the symptoms were that one day it plainly quit working? The joints all seem fine (used but fine), and one day it just quit turning. (from what my father told me)

Thats the part that has me a little... hesitant to just go and buy axles!

all mine are cv axles, but i can't see the axle spline stripping out, (or maybe it did) because there is alot of meat in there. is it a straight axle or is it independent?

Thanks for the manuals, I think I downloaded them from you before and ill check again when I get home.

The quad has independent rear suspension and cv axles.

If it was a straight axle I would be a little more familiar with it, but till I rip this one apart I dont really know much!

      The tires which I bought on ebay cannot be balanced, it’s out of round.Tried riding and had wobble. 
      It was mounted in shop and they also put it on a rim they had sitting in the shop and same issue to confirm it.
      Are they defective ?
      They have brand new high quality tires for my  old suzuki gsxr750 and want about $600 for two tires.
      Is it worth it to pay that much or buy another set of front rear tires like Hexautoparts which has good reviews on trustpilot.com?
      Any recommendations ?
      Thank you.

      It will go into neutral, 1st, 2nd, and reverse but nothing after 2nd gear. The shifter moves freely going up completely nothing but when you shift down it works. I’m not sure if it’s tranny issue worth messing with or if I should just buy a new one.  Overall besides that the thing runs like new.

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      Hello. I’m in the market for a new quad. Update from a 400ex. I’m looking at 2 in particular. A 2004 predator Troy lee edition all stock and in really clean shape for 1700. Or a 2008 mxr 450 with the ktm engine. Not as clean but newer. For 2000. 
      I’m torn. Any with experience with either of these mind giving me some input?
      Thanks in advance.

      Hi All,
      I did a total restoration on a 2003 Yamaha Raptor 80. Rebuilt the engine and tranny.. Started it up today and it runs great. Took it for a ride and the transmission worked perfectly. Adjusted the carb a little more and went for another ride. It ran awesome, pulled into the workshop shifted into neutral ( Neutral light came on) and shut off the bike. went to roll it and noticed she would not roll. Turned on the key and neutral light was on... After some troubleshooting I found that she is in first gear with the neutral light on and will not shift into neutral... It seems to up shift fine into 2nd and 3rd and then back down to 1st. I am hoping somebody can shed some light on what is happening... Thanks for any help...
