Suzuki King Quad 700 - Doesnt Disengage 4x4

Recommended Posts

hey, after a short ride i realized my 06 king quad 700 was in 4x4, the button was in the 2wd position, as was the LCD display. i took a quick look at the actuator and it was hot to the touch, any ideas where i should go from here? thanks

I had this to happen on my 02 prairie 650 in stayed in 4wd and the gages showed 2wd. I pulled the actuator and then added power to it and my actuator was turning but there was a small block on the actuator that was worn so I thought that was the problem the block of metal swivels on a pin it was what contacted the collier to slide it back & forth to engage or disengage 2wd & 4wd. Mine turned out to be the front diff. Now I wll say this my actuator did not get hot. I would pull it out and turn the switch on on your quad and flip it 2wd & 4wd and see if your actuator is working if you have to unplug the wires to remove it just remember to plug them back in once you remove the actuator. Or if you have a 12 volt battery charger you can use it to test the actuator.

I got it off, had to unbolt the front diff. I'd say I'm gonna be in for a actuator. It turns but its very weak

I hope you get it fixed soon! Good to hear it's the actuator and not the diff. I got lucky with my prairie I guess you could say my frame broke where the front A-arm mounts so I was looking for a frame and ended up getting an 03 prairie not running for 300.00 so that took care of my diff trouble, frame & left me with extra parts that I sold for 200.00 a used diff sells for more than what I paid for the donor quad and 200 was cheap for the extra parts I sold and the buyer had them sold for 400

      I just recently bought a 1994 Yamaha Timberwolf 4x4 from a buddy who had the wheeler sitting in his garage for 7 years. I got it home and fired it up pushed it out of the garage and tried to shift it and it wouldn't shift. First it would click like it was shifting, but the wheeler wouldn't move and when I hit the gas it revved up like I was in nuetral. After trying some more it became stuck in 1st gear and wouldnt shift at all. But it later broke loose agian and acts like it is in neutral again. I took the motor off the machine to make it easier to work on.After asking friends they were convinced it was a clutch problem but after opening up the casing for the clutch I don't see anything out of the ordinary and am concerned that it may be a transmission problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you.

      My bayou was running. Turned it off. Went to start it again about 20 minutes later and nothing.... no electrical power. No lights, no neutral indicator light. Battery good. Jumped starter and it turns over but doesn't start. I'm not sure what the problem could be. Maybe ci igniter or rectifier?

      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.
