Recommended Posts

Never seen one until today. I bought it at a auction. Ive seen plenty of 4x4 but not 2 appears to have suzuki motor. Belt drive. Just wantin to know if a good atv. No odo or hour meter. Tires are fair. Starts an runs jus dont have alot of power. Anything to lookout for on this model? Got it as a first atv for the wife an wantin a reliable ride for her. Thanks

So what your saying is you have a 04 2wd utility style quad with irs with a Suzuki motor maybe. Is the quad a Suzuki you said appears to have a Suzuki motor & it's a 400. Can you post pics of the quad. It's hard to say what to lookout for when you don't tells us what you have such as Suzuki king quad. Suzuki makes good quads just as Honda, Yamaha & Kawasaki but condition means alot. By your post your not sure what you have. A friend of mine bought a quad listed as a 2wd utility quad kawasaki when he took it to the dealer for work they told him it came as a 4wd and all the stuff had been removed & where the front shafts would go into the front huds had been blocked off. I would find the model & serial# and see what you can find out. You never know what people will throw togather and sale

Not sure on the Arctic cat I do know Suzuki used the Kawasaki V-Twin motor in the Twin Peaks. But I think AC did use Kawasaki motors too! Rather it's full blooded Suzuki or AC with Suzuki power if the over all condition of the quad is in good shape I would just check the plug, air filter, change the oil & depending on how it's running if needed look into cleaning the carb. Is the motor marked as being Suzuki?

Well I tried a search for a 2wd 400 with IRS in the 2004 model line up for Arctic Cat & Suzuki I couldn't find anything on the web with IRS 2wd & 400cc.

It's me again found a 250 cat with irs so it turned out to be a better site than the Arctic cat site I was on did a little research 2004 Arctic cat 400 2x4 showed up & has the irs. It was a Suzuki build for Arctic cat it should be a good quad if it was taken care of when it comes right down to it some people can trash a new quad pretty quick & then you can find some older quads in better condition than a newer quad. You should be able to find reviews on line for your quad & just read thru them. Getting parts would be something to check into make sure their available.

Parts should not be a problem, I did a quick lookup on Country Cats site and they have all the parts listed for the machine.

Arctic Cats did use both Suzuki and Kawasaki motors.

[attach]1419[/attach][attach]1420[/attach][attach]1421[/attach][attach]1422[/attach]thanks guy heres some pics. Evidently this atv is rare. Several dealers im in contact with daily say they didnt make but a handful 2wd. I finally got to ride it in slade an it performed great lotta mudholes other 2wd was gettin stuck i could drive right around them. No it doesnt have alotta power but it dont seem to hurt it any. The clearance is unreal! I havent heard anything bout this atv as far as reliability . Did suzuki build it? Hadnt heard that. It may be a great quad for the mrs to ride an being rare ill hang on to it. Plus the price of 250$ i gave not lookin bad.

      I've got a king quad 750cc has anyone converted the fuel pump relay to a stronger fuel pump relay on there king quad?
    • By Brandon Bollinger
      Doesnt seem to make the sound all the time. Mostly does it under load or going up an incline. Its kind of like a clunk and or grinding noise, Kind of hard to decipher. Today while going up an incline it actually stopped and it sounds like something spinning and then it ingauged again and it would move. I checked the clutches and installed a new belt before it did that also. Rear drive shaft seems ok where U joint is too. Has all new rear CV shafts and bearings and al new bushings in rear arms. Also flushed out the rear Diff with no shavings. Any ideas or where to check.

      Where installing a winch to KINGQUAD ltf300?? someone have any pic?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      Hello. I am a new member as of today. I had a quick question to ask. I recently was driving mt HONDA RANCHER 2004 GPSscape 400 and my display stopped working. I was driving the atv and all of a sudden the speedometer and the service lights went out. Also the lights stopped working. I am still able to shift gears, change from 2wd to 4wd, and can still select if I want EPS or Auto. I have checked my fuse box and have changed a few of them around. It did not change anything. I was wondering if anyone had any idea of what had happend. Thank you for your time- Trenton

      So i was riding the other day and my quad randomly shut off. It started back up and ran completely fine for a little while and then it started idling terribly.
      I cleaned the carb and changed all the jets and everything except the float due to the rebuild kit not coming with one and it actually runs worse then it did before.
      It will run and idle decent now but when I give it gas it dies.
      Does anybody know what could be wrong?
      I also changed the spark plug and air filter along with the oil and oil filter.
