1993 Suzuki Quadrunner - Idle/Throttle Prob


Recommended Posts

:aargh: hello everyone, got some problems with my bike that i need some help figuring out. when i start the bike itll run fine for 2-3 minutes, then it starts to rev really high(almost at max rpms) and doesnt respond right to throttle(sometimes throttle will bog it out doesnt do anything). The only way it can kind of control it (and it seems to work pretty well) is by plugging the breather hole/vent out of the bowl of the carb. When i plug that hole it stops reving really high(almost instantly) but the throttle now seems to stick(I hit the throttle and itll respond nicely but slowly idles down). Now ive cleaned out the carb around 4 times and blew it all out with an air compressor, so it should be well cleaned by now, it also now has a new diaphram installed as well.

I do know that there is a bad valve(I think its the intake valve) because its got around 155-160 psi when engine is cold but once it warms up its a little under 120psi. Also think there is a electrical issue because the head light only gets bright on the last stroke as the bike dies out(No battery installed). Not sure if either of these problems could cause this but hoping someones been there done that and knows the root of the throttle problem.

Also every time i check the spark plug its black and fluffy

Thanks in advance for ur help.:wink:

if the plug is black, then its burning rich. i dont think the other problems are affecting the rev issue. is there fuel running out the bowl overflow where you plug it to settle it down? the throttle cable moves nice and the slide works well and isnt sticking? how are the vacuum lines on the carb? is the needle and seat working properly and is the float whole and not taking on fuel? how is the spark plug? proper heat range? hopefully a suzuki guy will jump in to give some suggestions too ...

      I added more fresh gas it sat one day now, it's acting up again. Before cleaning out carburetor it wouldn't idle good and had gas leaks from carburetor. Now it idles pretty good but, if I increase throttle speed at a certain amount it starts missing bad. I'm going to try and post a short video. Just about ready to give up on this thing.😒  you can see reflection perking in video.

      Hello folks, my machine wound up with I think water in the tank etc. It runs but speeds up and slows back down randomly. When not running I don't see gas dripping  from the drain nipple on bottom of float bowl and drain screw is closed tight. With normal idle speed I see no leaking. When the idle speed increases quite a bit on it's own, gas appears to start slowly dripping from float bowl drain nipple? I'm wondering if the carb is flooding and the gas is actually coming from higher up and just appears, to be coming out of nipple but, is actually running down the sides of the nipple? I put a kit in the factory Mikuni carb last year after sitting for a while and I think the gas in the jug I used had drawn moisture. I plan to pull the carb tomorrow and clean everything out. I was just curious if anyone else thinks it's probably something in the carb and is, acutally a flooding problem? Thanks Folks! 🙂

      So, I bought the machine almost a year ago and have been chasing problems. I have replaced the battery, starter solenoid, spark plug, and the starter. Since having replaced those, it doesn't want to start. I checked the carb, and it was wet as well as the spark plug. And I've searched multiple forums and cannot find an answer. So, anything that helps is appreciated, thanks.

      I have a 1989 quadrunner LT160. I am looking to replace the plastics. I can't find them for the 89 specifically but I do see plastics for a 91 - 01. Is there a difference in the 89 to the 91 - 01 plastics? From the photos, they appear to be the same with the exception of the holes for the front and rear racks. 
      Please help clarify if you can. Thanks!

      Well yall, it's been a while. Work has absolutely annihilated me for the past 5-6 months, and ive had bare minimum time to work on this project. Thank you to those that helped previously during the engine rebuild, but now were on to the task of wiring, and let me tell you besides the plugs on the wiring, I am almost completely lost. Bought an ebay harness, and none of the colors line up to what i have seen on any manuals. Its all the 97-01 electronics i believe. Ill post some pictures below of the mess I'm working with. Emphasis on "mess." A lot of the wires had to be extended since the harness was made for an atv and not a buggy. The colors are a little wonky, but I was using what I had, and they were mostly for just extending the plugs, so the colors match on either end. A buddy of mine has been helping me, and we are just at a loss. Looking for general guidance or any wire specific help you could give us. Not even sure if some of the single wires are plugged in right, and we dont have a "lever switch" wondering if thats just for the brake, because the master cylinder has two screws. I suppose a + and -... We also have what I believe are the reverse and neutral sensors to plug in (the only two sensors on the engine)
      P.S. peep the custom airbox i 3d printed to utilize a lawn mower filter and 2x2 coupling from lowes 
      If you need better pictures of anything, let me know, It's kind of hard to get pictures of this rats nest.
      Wires that are not connected to anything
      4th picture black wire
      5th picture blue wire w white stripe left/solid blue on right
      6th picture what I believe to be the lever switch from pictures I saw on ebay
      7th picture is two black wires coming out of the harness. One we have running back to a black with white stripe that comes out of a different place in the harness. The other that had an end to match the single wire coming from the handle bar switch. Single handle bar wire has a white stripe, so I may try to switch those around if the ends permit it.
      I know it just looks god awful, but i really do think we are close, and the idea is to figure out whats going where, then figure out how to make it look better, so bear with me haha. Any help is appreciated. Just finished a little go kart for my wife with a predator 212, and gosh do I envy that wiring (there is none😂)
