X250sxman

1989 Suzuki LT250s - No Start

Recommended Posts

I bought this 250s from a friend, (along with a sweet ATC 70), but I am having all kinds of trouble getting this thing to run.

I rebuilt the carb, have strong spark and it is getting fuel. Seems to have great compression. I was able to push start it once or twice but my neighbor couldn't keep it running and trying to push start it destroyed the teeth of of both sprockets. Best I can do with the kickstart is to get a backfire when I drip a little gas in the cylinder.

Anybody have a good link to a service manual? I think the next thing to do would be to check the timing?? Not sure how as I don't see any inspection plugs anywhere on the cases.

Any input/help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the links!

I suspect the valves need adjusted and the timing may be off. I did have it started though(well my neighbor did when I was towing it behind my wheeler - but he kept accidentally letting go of the clutch while in gear and couldn't keep it running) and it seemed to revv up ok.

But now with the manuals I will have a little more guidance in getting the valves and timing set then I can go from there.

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      I have a 1993 Bayou 400 4x4 and I have no spark. I tried 2 new plugs and nothing still.
      I have checked the CDI black wires to body of the box for continuity and none.
      It turns over but no spark, not sure where to go from there.
      Any advise on what and how to check other components would be awesome.
      Thanks: Garry
