So i took a road trip today to look at a Suzuki Eiger! 2006 in perfect condition other then the fact it starts for 30 seconds and shuts down.
Its been sitting for about a year in a shed.
It has a plow and a winch included!!!
Got it for a really good price and all looks good so far.

Ok, so I bought this scream of a deal the other day - a 94 King Quad 300 for $40.00. It's been sitting outside with no carburetor on it for about a year. Its rusty, missing some parts, wiring is all cut up and spliced etc. No seat, no racks but the plastic is all there minus the headlight housing. Anyway, who can pass up a $40.00 quad right? I get it home and looked at the sight glass for oil level, it's about 1/2 oil and 1/2 water. I drain it, refill it and turn the motor by hand (recoil starter is missing) and it turns over just fine. I worked on the wiring for about an hour and got it to turn over with the electric starter and got enough of it sorted out to get a spark. Did a quick compression test, 70 lbs. Wet test bumped it up to 90. Ok, so rings and cylinder washed out with water for a year, not too surprised. I thought 'what the hell' and sprayed some starting fluid in it and it ran for about 2 seconds - enough to show it's got life. Since then the compression has gotten worse, I can't get enough pressure to activate the carb diaphragm, therefore no fuel pump either. The compression is now around 60.
Anyway, my question is....is it worth it to try to get this thing going? I tore the top end down today and the cam and one of the rockers is pretty worn. I figured a top end job would be about $100 or so, depending on the condition of the cylinder but I'll probably have to put a cam and rockers in it as well. Doing some research on ebay I figure I'll have to spend about $500-$700 to make the whole machine right again. Much less just to make it run and use as-is but I won't really like it until it's right. I don't mind doing the work, I actually enjoy it but I'm concerned about what all that water did to the rest of the internals, I can't really test it all out until I can make it run.
I know it's a basket case but I'm not into it much at all, even if I do the top end and find something else wrong I'm still not out much. I'm leaning toward ordering the top end parts and going from there unless you can convince me otherwise - any way to check the rest of the internals without tearing it down? I plan on flushing the oil cooler before I do another oil change, I've drained it twice now and it gets milky almost immediately just turning the starter - I suspect the oil cooler is polluted badly.
I'll get some pictures today if anyone want to see them.

I'm new to the site. My son and I have decided to bring back our old quad from the dead. Does anyone know where we can purchase a cylinder kit for it. I think it's a 1986, but will have to check the VIN to be sure.
The last time it ran, it was tapping and smoking pretty bad.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have a 2006 Suzuki ltz400. i bought it off some kid upstate and it ran when i tested it at his house. i brought it back to Long Island then it wouldnt start. it doesnt electric start to be more specific. Itll start if i pop the clutch in first gear but it doesnt idle, it dies. only does this when the motor is cold, when the motor is warmed up, itll idle. so i took it apart the i found that it had a blown headgasket. i replaced that and now it still doesnt start. i checked the timimg and its TDC on the bottom and top. now it cranks very strong and the compression is strong but it still wont turn over. its popped a couple times but it doesnt run. i cant seem to figure it out, i need help please.:mad:

Two month's ago my 98 Bayou 300 was stolen, i am happy to say it was recovered Friday! I am not happy to say it is in bad shape.. It was found 3 mile's away from where it was stolen stuck in a dryed up mud hole! so they got it stuck in mud over its tire's and left it! can you guess what happened next? the mud dryed.. so it was half buried for 2 months! the police had to dig it out with a backhoe! after i got it home (150 bucks to git it out of impound!) i spent 2 days chipping the stone like dirt out of the fraim! I'm shocked at the amount of rust on it! and 3 of the 4 wheel's are frozen up! so i guess i have to sand and repaint the hole thing! ahhh!! but all that aside, im happy to have it back! and im having Lowjack installed!
