1999 Suzuki King Quad - Wont Start

Recommended Posts

My King Quad was running fine and then decided it wouldnt crank again. I can spray fuel into the carb and it will crank and cut off. I removed the fuel line and could blow thru the line into the tank but couldnt pull any from the tank, also I removed the top of the carb and pulled what looks to be the diaphragm out and sprayed cleaner into the carb, placed it back and again it fired for a couple of seconds and cut off, it would only idle, couldnt throttle it none. everytime i messed with this it would idle for couple of seconds and shut off. other than that it will not crank at all.

Im guessing maybe the diaphragm or something but I dont know, any ideas??

thanks in advance

I might add that i disconnected the fuel line and turned it over and no fuel would spurt out

Fuel does not come out at all of the fuel line, i can however blow thru the line. Nothing was done except changed the air filter. The engine turns over fine, nothing electrical seems wrong with it. Its like its not getting any fuel to crank or run unless you manually give it some!

the screen may be blocked in the petcock. you can remove the petcock to clean the screen but you should try and remove all the fuel first. if the screen is plugged i would flush the tank too.

Could be your fuel pump. It should pulse when you take it off and crank it. Check the vacuum hose to it for holes. Also check if there is fuel in that vacuum hose. If there is, your diaphragm in the pump is shot. Also be sure there is enough fuel in the tank to be above both inlet screens

You can check the fuel pump by disconnecting the fuel line at the carb and hitting the starter. Gas should squirt out of the line in small pulses. You can check the vacuum line at the front right side of the carb by removing it and looking to see if it is wet. Since it is a vacuum line it should be dry as a bone. Also look at both lines for cracks. If you have to replace the fuel pump, it is on the left side of the frame below the handlebars. You will have to remove the front rack and fenders to get at it. You might also want to ask oxidized_black for a service manual download. It has a couple pictures of the fuel pump. They aren't real good as far as showing the location, though.

And as oxy says check the petcock. If you pull the line off at the petcock, gas should run out of the petcock when you turn it to on or res. The gas then goes forward to the fuel pump. then down to the carb.

      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.

      i have a 2000 suzuki king quad lt-f300f that i picked up as a project bike. it didnt run well when it was parked outside 5 years ago. it cranked after putting fresh gas - but would not run below half throttle, i took apart the carb, cleaned debris, and re-assembled. i suspect that the pilot needle is sheared off - it never protrudes into the throttle body through the pinhole. now to get the bike to ALMOST idle, the throttle idle adjustment knob is all the way up/in. the pilot needle is turned almost all the way in/up (if i understand correct, it should nominally be out 2 1/4 turns or so). and like i said, it will ALMOST idle. floods easily, rides rough.
      wanted to hear from those more experienced than me with suzukis - and im self-taught atv repair, so dont laugh too hard if my verbiage/part names is way off. 
      facing the driver's side of the bike [US] there are three hoses on this side of the carb. without a service manual or way of knowing what was messed up before i got it, i think i have them right: front hose as a vacuum to the petcock, middle hose as vacuum to the fuel pump, rear hose as fuel line from the fuel pump. running the bike in prime position results in flooding even while riding. with all hoses disconnected from the carb, fuel slowly drips from the vacuum line connected to the petcock.
      so just my speculation is that the diaphragm in the petcock is split, and the pilot needle is broke off - causing my inability to not quite idle and the rough ride. this suzuki is hoses and cables everywhere compared to the honda ranchers and yamaha warriors i am used to. I would like to have a plan rather than: replace everything at once.
      is my speculation on the right track, or could something else be at play? say, if the compression was non-existent, would that cause non-idling? i am all ears, look forward to the input.
