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 Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html

      Hello everyone,
      Im new here, this is my first post and Im trying to figure out how evrything works on this site so I please let me know if Im doing anything wrong.
      I have a couple Yamaha's but this post is in regards to my 02 Grizzly 660, I have an electrical draw somewhere that is taking my new battery down rather quickly. I have tried to locate any short by checking each circuit but was not able to locate it that way. Im installing a battery cut off switch which brings me to my first question, dont these switches usually go on the Negative terminal?
      My next question is, can anyone tell me if this year and model has any history of electrical shorts that might help me locate the culprit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      Finally, Im looking forward to being a member of this site and hopefully helping others as well as learning some things myself, so greetings to all!
      Best wishes to everyone!

      I'm having a problem getting a CDI unit that works. The parts list calls for a  4XE-85540-00-00 CDI unit. The one currently on the ATV works but there seems to be a problem with the spark advance curve. It will idle fine an rev. to about 1.5K then  starts bogging down sputtering, popping and basically running poorly. If you can get it above 2200 RPM it runs better. I have ordered and returned about 5 replacement modules that will not work at all. The unit currently on the bike has no part numbers or identification other than a Mitisibuchi logo. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced similar problems with replacement CDI's and if so what is the fix? So far I have not found a replacement CDI that will supply an pulse to the Ignition coil.

      Looking for the rectifier.  Most bikes have near magneto.  It appears the KQ has it in front.
      Can someone tell me exactly where it is? 
      Bike not charging and magneto checks out ok
