1988 Suzuki LT4wd New quad, few questions.

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a 1988 Suzuki LT4wd for $500.00 off craigslist, I just got done restoring a 1989 Yamaha Big Bear 350, and i saw this quad had the 6 select-able ranges and I fell in love with it.

Im fixing the brakes now, moving onto carb soon, Im a machinist and have a good mechanical inclination, but im totally new to ATVs (took me a full week to figure out my lean condition on the big bear wasnt a clogged jet, it was just missing the rest of the intake tube).:laugh:

few questions

1.) i put the quad up on stands and started to pull the brakes apart, came in the garage today to see half my front diff oil on the ground (pinion seal) id like to replace it, and im just wondering if its bearing style pinion, or crush sleeve, and how hard it would be to replace the seal (and bearings if they're shot). Is it built with looser tolerances (backlash and pinion depth etc) or is it like a vehicle diff where you go to get it dead on or your burn up the gears?

2.) I was told fenders from a LT4wd, lt250, king quad etc, will fit (from up too 2001) is this true? My plastics are FUBARd, and i wouldn't mind going to newer style wider fenders (providing the attachment points are mostly the same)

3.) I LOVE the front diff lock feature. I hate that itll only engage in super low. I do like my mud pits and keeping wheelspin up while going in a straight line is ideal for me. i have heard mutterings on the internet that there's ways to modify the shifter assembly so itll engage in ranges other than super low. Again, is this true and or is there a writeup about it?

Im sure there will be more questions, but for now this is all i can think of, thanks again!

      I have bought a 1996 suzuki king quad 300 and I have noticed that it smokes but I have put oil in it and plenty of gas had to fix shifter bc the nuts and bolts came out somewhere. I have had to replace the wire for the starter but now when I try to start it it wont idle at all and when it does run it smokes really bad like a whitish blue I guess, and it likes to stall a lot. So anybody can help me out please and thank you

      My 1997 Beg Bear got stuck in 2nd Gear when parked on slight hill, otherwise in perfect shape. Trying to get it into neutral, by rocking it back and forth won't release out of gear.
      Any suggestions, It's my work horse and I keep it in to shape, got to get it running..

      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.

      Our 1988 Yamaha Terra Pro is finally seeing the finish line of becoming our new bush hogging tractor! I've had the terra pro for almost 2 years... we had great intentions, but after removing the fenders, fuel tank, and the carb, we let it sit up. Shame on us! However, the terra pro is cranking today. We cleaned the carb, figured out what goes where and where did that screw go! She smokes like there's no tomorrow, but that's okay! The only issue right now is getting all these lines hooked back up to the carb right! There is 5 lines to hook up to this thing!! And in our moment of drinking and removing parts, we cant remember how they go back on. I've found several diagrams online, but none showing the overall schematics of all the lines! If anyone has a service manual, or any way of helping us figure out what goes where I would really appreciate it!! I can attach pictures later if it'll help!

      Hi all, my second post here
      I got an old Yamaha 88 moto 4 and I have a problem with my overflow hose from the carb.
      When I put the gas switch to ON a big amount of gas is leaking from the overflow...so I start using my quad with the gas switch to RESERVE wich is also leaking but less than in ON position.
      I dont ride a lot..but in a week I empty my gas tank.
      Strange.
      I never clean my carb because Im new to quad world and dont have the service manual...so I need you point of view.
      Thanks guys!

      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.
