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.

i think that top hose is somewhat of a breather hose, and you should have the overflow at the bottom of the carb bowl. when i was working on my project big bear, i had to change the stator, had spark but wouldnt go, buddy said to me have you changed the plug? my jaw dropped LOL ... changed the plug and vrrrroooom

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......

i think you have a bad connection, more likely at the solenoid. i always sandpaper everything shiny then dielectric grease it, should be all thats wrong.

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!!

if you take a screwdriver, and bridge across both contacts on the solenoid, will it turn over?

dont worry about the spark you will get from doing it ...

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 ...

ok so I charged it and when I went to start it the ring terminal on the nut that is on the starter started smoking right where it is crimped. and it didn't start.. do I need to re splice it and crimp it again?

If it is loose at the crimp I would recrimp

It also sounds like u may have a starter issue..

U might want to remove the starter and test it ..

To make shure it spins freely and fast with 12-volts

Hooked up to it ...

I took the battery to get tested and they said it was dead. but I actually just bought a brand new starter so I did test it and it is good. but with my luck they didn't give me enough battery acid so hopefully it will start when I get more acid

      Indicators that tell you to check your toe-in.

      I have a 2003 LTZ 400 that i bought a few days ago. The quad was running fine until last night. I let my brother ride it down the street and back and i didnt notice anything etong with bike. Then my neighbors friend came over and said "can i ride it?" I said "sure" so he ripped it down the road all fine and when he got back it died right in front of us. My brother said it was dieing on him also. He also said that he wasnt using the clutch to shift. I told him he was an idiot. Im throwing that in there incase that caused a problem as well. But today i go to check it to make sure its getting fuel which it is and replaced the spark plug incase it wasnt getting spark but it is. So i started it and it was having a problem starting then i got started and was reving at idle high. So i took it around the block and it died on me a little bit down, so i try to restart it and it started so i kicked it into 1st and it kinda launched on me and started going with the clutch all the way in. Then it died right after and wasnt running right during that process and was idleing all over the place and just died and now i cant get it started it again. Before it would start without the choke or priming it. It would start real quick now i cant figure if it needs to be rejetted or something else. Air filter looks clean also. But any help would be gratelly appreciated!

      I need to know what I have and what tire really go on it, Mine has 24x11x10 on the back and 22x8x10 on the front and I need new tire but I don't think are the right size. Also I can't find the model number listed but it looks like a 250 quadrunner 2wd and I think it is a 1987 maybe, can anyone help me, also I it has a rich running sound and I put a carb diap in it and cleaned the carb. is there a jet needing replaced?

      Hi All,
      I live in Minnesota and bought a 2016 CFORCE 500 HO. I am in hope to see if there is anyone in the US that is experiencing this sudden drop off in RPM below 4000 RPM. I have uploaded some videos of my issue on YouTube. I will list three of the four I posted. The fourth can be found on my channel but it is a comparison between my Polaris 570 and my CFORCE 500.
      I quit on my first dealer because we just did not mix well together. I brought it to another CFMOTO dealer that just became a CFMOTO dealer in January 2016. They are in a large ranch and agriculture area in a neighboring state that is pretty close to where I live. They have close to every brand available. They are a much larger dealer than the first one I bought the unit from.
      I brought the unit three weeks ago to them and they have worked on it a good solid week and have given up on it. I have read reports from owners in Canada that the dealers there were aware of the issue and have had success in fixing the herky jerky drivability issue.
      I am picking it up tomorrow and bringing it back home. It has been to the trails of the Black Hills this year and was new in late April. 300 miles on it. It has never changed. Very hard to ride on the trails or when I herd livestock.
      Here are the links to my videos.



      I can't accept that this is normal operation. Does anyone from CFMOTO China scan these posts?
      I need help that CFMOTO USA has not provided.
      Thanks
      Kevin
