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.

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ? 
    • By Sturgeon
      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better.  It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims.  Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300:  I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires: 





      and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.

      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.
