2003 Suzuki Vinson 500 - Rev Issue? HELP!


Recommended Posts

like a new exhaust system, higher performance exhaust. nothing really to do with the jetting if it is all stock, i know the suzuki have vacuum lines, are they all in the right spot or not cracked?when you throttle it, does it kinda feel there is too much gas or not enough? make sure you have good spark by taking the plug out and ground it to the motor and turn it over, should be brilliant blue ... could also try a new plug ...

no I believe it is all stock. yes they do have vacuum lines. actually when I was taking carb off I noticed a hose came with it. now that hose comes straight from carb and idk where it goes. I kinda thought it might have been an overflow tube? it comes off the top of carb. the vacuum lines are in right spot I believe and are not cracked. it feels like there is enough gas it just doesn't rev fast at all. kinda like if you start off in 5th gear in a car haha. however I have not changed spark plug since I changed carb and before that their was gas backing up everywhere.

Ha! I wish it were that easy for me! one thing just keeps leading to another :aargh: soooo I threw a new plug in and got a starter. AND nowwwwwww the solenoid just clicks realllly fast. Does this means its broke? or do I have a bad connection? or what? I have heard about the strator could that be a problem? its not even turning over......

ok. I cleaned all the terminal on the battery, solenoid, and starter and applied grease to them all.. and I loosened a screw on the solenoid and when I tried to starter it the solenoid only clicks once now. I used a test light and when I touch the - side its a dim light on the solenoid. I also charged the battery. still it wont even turn over. sooooo I am lostttt!!! haha hellllp!!

ok.. soo I checked the battery and it reads 11.40 on a 20v meter so I took the starter off and grounded it to the frame and it turned over but sounded rather weak to me. soooo I hooked it back up and used the solenoid ground this time and got nothing..... soo then I bridged to solenoid and stillll nothing. now my solenoid wont even click......... then I went on a rage and threw a few wrenches and came and typed this. haha thanks for all your help so far man!

U might wana put it on a battery charger on the lowest setting

For several hours.. Maybe over nite and see if it will try to turn

It over..

I know that the battery in my sons quad won't start my big utility quad ...

As it dosent have enough amperage ... It will click or may make the starter

Drag ... An turn very slowly till it comes up on the compression stroke and

Then it will stop and click .. You might need alot bigger battery or 1 that

Has more amps per hour rating ...

i usually let mine go all night, but if you are reading that, it should be good ...

you might want to do what ck suggested with the starter, i would try to take it to a napa or someone that can do a load test on it. it might spin while out of the engine, but might not under a load. i would check the gear/sprocket the end of the starter goes in too. it should spin freely one way only ...

yeah I did take the starter off and put the nut coming out of it on the positive and grounded it out with a screwdriver directly to the battery and It spun fast. however I believe the gear/socket you are speaking off does not turn freely. if I understand you correctly its what the starter basically plugs into with its teeth. sooo is there a way to free this up?

      The 2024 ATVs are out and I was just looking at the websites for Yamaha and Suzuki. The Grizzly and King Quad have come a long way, probably two of my favorite quads over the years. Both of these come with power steering but I almost like the King Quad styling a little more. The plastics haven't changed much over the years either, mayeb a little more rugged. The King Quad racks are more like the Polaris plastic racks (I think they were the first to introduce these) but on a closer look, I think its just plastic covers over the traditional metal racks. The Grizzly still keeps the old style metal racks. I like the display/instrument panel on the Grizzly more.

      Thoughts on these two? Here's a pretty good comparison of both 2023 models. I didn't know some of these things like no seat latch on the Grizzly and hydraulic rear brake vs cable. Good video to watch if you are consideting these:

      Heres my story. Kinda long. I guess I was a late bloomer when it comes to quads. I had never ridden a quad in my life. Rode Dirt Bikes as a kid growing up. Back in Oct of '06 I found a Mustang on craigslist. Took it for a test drive one morning before work. Fast car. 351 Cleveland. I had planned on meeting the guy again after work. For some strange reason thats still to this day beyond me, I stopped in Hillsboro MotoSports on the way home from work. I had 6 Grand on me. There was a left over '05 sitting by the front door. It was on sale for $4999. It was $5499 OTD. I didnt even look at anything else. I knew nothing about quads accept I thought it really looked coool and I had the money in my pocket to buy it. I was sitting on it when the salesman walked up and asked... "Can I help you?" Without hestitation I pulled 60 Ben Franklins outta my front pocket and said "I want this Quad. Load it up in my truck." It was just about dark by the time I drove away from the shop. BTW, I didnt bother to ask my ol lady if I could buy it. LOL. Anyway, I took it by the house and showed her. She was kinda stunned but not mad. We drove over to a friend of mines house and unloaded it. I took it to the field across the street from his house. HOLY CHIT!!!!! I was surprised by the power. I had it for about 2 weeks and took it to Sand Lake. I was there a few hours and rolled it on a banked turn at the top of the bowl right before you get to the one-ways. When it rolled, I flew off and landed on my belly. The quad came bouncing and landed on my back. For a month I couldnt even walk. I was scared of it. I considered trading it for a 250EX. Went back to the shop. The salesman said..."Dude!!! You dont want a 250EX!!! Trust me. Just get used to it" I still wasnt convinced. I put it on craigslist for $4000. Calls were coming in. I had a guy that wanted to come look at it that evening. I decided to take it for one last ride at Browns Camp before I sold it. I was still afraid of it. After about 5 minutes I started feeling comfortable on it again. I decided right then, I loved my Honda 450 and would learn how to ride it instead of selling it. That was late Nov of '06. Work was slow for a Painter in Oregon. My new job everyday? Going to Browns Camp and ridding my Quad. I bought my Girl Friend an '02 Blaster. I rode my 450 for 4-6 hours almost every single day for 3 months. And yes, I know my way around Browns Camp pretty well. LOL. In March I bought her an '06 TRX250EX (Thank God I didnt trade my 450 for one of those) LOL Since then, I have become totally addicted to quads. I love them. Couldnt imagine not owning at least one quad. Luckily I have two. My "07 was $6500 OTD in July of '07. Bought it for my Girlfriend. Traded in her 250 EX. A month later we broke up. So, I wound up with two Honda 450's.

      So I've got a Hisun 550 (clone of a Yamaha Rhino 660) that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.
