2008 Suzuki King Quad - Shutdown After 10 Mins

Recommended Posts

Good evening,

I'm hoping someone here can help me.... I've had my quad to 5 different shops and no one seems to be able to fix it. :realmad: The problem I'm having with my 750 King Quad is that it will run for about 10 minutes and then shut off. If you let it sit for a while, it will start back up, but will then do the same thing. I am at a loss. I had one place tell me I needed a new CDI for about 600 dollars and yet another tell me I needed the engine redone...... my quad only has 600 miles on it. Anyone else heard of this problem, or know what might be causing it? :aargh:

once it is warmed up, an electrical component(s) is failing probably. a coil would be something to look at first, then see if you can get your cdi box tested ...

thanks for the reply, the coil is fine, and how do I get the CDI tested? I really dont want to drop 600 into the quad if it isnt the poblem

the easiest way is switching it out with a bike that's the same, otherwise the dealer can test it. try a couple different dealers ... i know there is a way to test them with a meter, but i'm not sure of the specs ...

My Trailblazer used to do something like that. I would start it up and it would run fine, but as soon as it got warmed up it would bog down and stall. I would not be able to get it started again until it cooled off. I checked all the elctrical and everything was fine. Just off the wall while I had the plug out I did a compression test. Turned out to be way low. What was happening was as the motor warmed up and expanded it would lose compression. As it cooled and contracted it got just enough to start and run. If you have a tester it is easy and then you can rule that out.

update...... now Im really confused LOL..... i took my kq to a shop that said they could test the cdi for me..... they tested it, and said nothing was wrong and there were no codes when they put the kq on the computer.... they put another cdi in it to test it, and then it ran fine..... they put the old cdi back in to see if it would still act up, and now it runs fine.... ran the kq for over half an hour and it never shut down..... now i have that shop confused too LOL.

Good evening,

It could be the CDI, but, is the bike getting too hot? Check coolant & water pump. BUT my money is on a bad coil. When it shuts down, touch the coil and see if its over heated. When a bad coil gets too hot, its because the wiring coil inside is shorting across from one winding to another. (Just a note-coils all work the same-almost any 12 volt coil will work if wired right-even a cheap China coil that's set up the same with number of connections.) And, another problem area is the voltage Rectifier. I fixed a 110 atv this week that people had been fighting for a year or so. It would start, run good awhile, then run bad, shut off. The problem, Rectifier getting hot as it was shorting out internally.

Spark wise, these things all work the same. Trigger coil (my name for it) sends a small voltage signal to the CDI, every time that the flywheel turns to the position where a magnet in it passes under the trigger coil.

Then, the CDI sends a larger voltage to the coil, which then sends a very large voltage to the spark plug, which then fires.

With and OHMS meter, you can check out the "TRIGGER" coil.

All of todays engines use this same principal, even cars on the road. There its called a "Crank Position Sensor". This system replaces the old "Contact Points", that we used to work with to clean and reset. They made contact once for every cylinder a motor had.

Hope all this helps.

Getting fuel and fire but when I check the plug its covered in fuel? I've checked time and clearance everything seems to be fine? Just cant figure it out?

      Hello - I have just had delivered my 2004 registered King Quad 300.
      The gear change is pretty fierce.  Pretty hard to get into gear from neutral on the foot pedal and when I select reverse on the hand lever, it jumps into reverse with a hell of a kick.
      I am waiting for a service manual to arrive, but in the meantime, has anyone any suggestions please?
      Thank you.

      Hello all, 
      I haven't had a dirt bike or ATV for years, but a buddy of mine just picked up a raptor 700 and makes me want to get back into the sport. I'm looking for the best bang for my buck utility quad that can go in snow, but also hit some small jumps and trail ride. It would mostly be used for light trail riding; not really any mud holes or jumps around me (Bristol, Massachusetts). My last bike was a 2004 yz125 2 stroke and it was a pain. Every other ride I was doing something to the bike. I'm looking for a utility quad that I can ride for a month without having to touch it. I've done a bit of research so far and it seems like my best bet would be ~2014 Yamaha grizzly 700 with ~1000 miles for about $5,000. I'd love some more opinions from people who are more knowledgeable about the sport. I'm looking to stay around that $5,000 range. Also, there's no trails around me to go more than 40 or 50mph so I'm not too worried about keeping up with the 700.
       
      Thanks,
      Nick

      Hello from Buhl, Idaho (near Twin Falls). I typically ride at least once a week in the Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area. Also like to ride in Colorado, Utah (especially Moab), Montana and Wyoming. I currently ride a 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 550. Anybody want to ride in Southern Idaho/Northern Nevada area look me up. I know these areas very well. I've also done a lot of dirt bike riding and 4X4 (Jeep) in the above listed areas over the last 15 years.

      So my stock 2017 750 KQ came with Carlisle AT489 Bias Tires
      On Amazon these seem to have excellent reviews although the thing I here the most cumulatively on the forums is the first thing to change is the tires. 
      Are these tires all that bad? They seem to be holding up nice and i go on some pretty serious black diamond trails. Granted this is my first ATV purchase and i don't really have anything long term to compare these to. 
      Please lace me up if im missing something here because if buying a new set of tires will increase performance - reliability- comfort - im all for it... Also if you guys could recommend some tires for the trails I'd appreciate it. I don't mud and don't plan to if that helps narrow down the search.

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.
