    2000 suzuki king quad lt-f300f idle issues

    If you have fuel coming out the vacuum line on your petcock, you are right that the diaphragm is shot. I am going through the same issue right now on my 01 LT-F500F, I have the vacuum blocked off and am running my bike in prime for now until I can get a new fuel valve assembly. Carb kit for my bike was 15$CAD on ebay, took a month to get here from China so I ended up going to the local shop and buying one for 30$CAD. I would suggest you pull that carburetor off, get it all apart and soak it in something like Hydro Seal (not sure what's available in the USA, but that's what I use). Then clean out every little port, I use different guitar strings for the different size ports and a lot of compressed air and carb cleaner. Once you have done that, soak it again and clean it again. Sounds to me like you have a problem in the pilot circuit. When you put it back together pay close attention to your float height and make sure it is set right. Not sure what that spec would be on your bike, it's 13mm +/- .5mm for mine. Go to the downloads section and there is a manual there for LT-F500F, it's got a good explanation in there of how each of the circuits work and what circuit is responsible for what stage of idle. I'm not sure about the lines on your carburetor. My bike has no fuel pump, it has a straight 6" hose from the petcock to the carburetor. I then have 2 vent lines on the top left and right and the vacuum for the petcock on the crankcase side. The pilot screw adjustment for my bike is 2 3/8 turns out from a soft seat (as per the manual) Not sure if any of that helps you.

    2001 Quadrunner 500 Running Problems

    Petcock issue as I suspected, going to order a new one tomorrow. Hooked it up to a reservoir,turned on the choke and she started right up. Smoked like mad for the first 30-40 minutes or so, gassed me right out of the garage. I don't think it has ran for quite a while. Let it run for a bit, enriched the mix a little bit and now she's running smokeless. I've got the vacuum lines sealed off right now and am running it in prime. Got the rear end all back together tonight and took it for the first drive since I bought it. Its not perfect, but it was solid for the short 15-20 minute ride. Got a few more things to clean up tomorrow and will give it a bit longer test ride then.
  4. Hi all, Picked this bike up about a month ago, and started doing some work on it. I ordered a carb kit from China, but got tired of waiting for it so I went to the bike shop today and picked up a Shindy rebuild kit. Took the carb out of soak, it has been in there for a month, blew all the ports out, cleaned what I could with a guitar string, used air as best I could to make sure everything was clear. After I was satisfied the body was clean I out the kit in it. Got the floats set to 13mm as per the manual (well 12.87 on one side and 12.92 on the other, so close), set the pilot to a little less than 2 1/2 turns out (manual says 2 3/8 turns). Put everything back together and tried to start it, it started and had a week idle. I tried adjusting the idle screw and as soon as I turned it the bike died. Backed it out and tried again, same result. Left it backed out, started it again and gave it some throttle. As soon as the throttle is touch the bike dies. Changed the spark plug for a new one and checked the spark, good and really strong. I am thinking that I have a bad petcock and am not getting enough fuel to the carburetor. So when I press the throttle I am increasing air but starving for fuel, bike can't run on air alone so it dies. Does this line of thinking make sense? I am gearing up a bottle with a fuel line in it, so I can try gravity feeding fuel to the carb, just have to wait for the silicone to dry so won't be able to test till tomorrow. If it turns out to be a bad fuel valve, I will most likely just replace it with a universal one. If I go this route, what do I need to do with the breather line off the carburetor that used to go to the OEM petcock? Block it off or leave it open? Any help, answers or other ideas of things to check would be greatly appreciated. I have a fishing trip at the end of the month and would love to have my bike running by then.

    96 Yamaha Big Bear Replacing carburetor jets

    Have you checked your timing? If you have it running and idling around the correct RPM, that would be the next thing I looked at. When you cleaned the carburetor did you verify that everything was in spec? Did you put a carburetor rebuild kit in, when you cleaned it? Pay very close attention to the float height measurement, especially if you are having any starvation or flooding issues. Also, if you didn't put a carb kit in you might want to. If the gaskets and O-rings or needle seat are not 100%, it can cause a lot of grief. A kit for my Suzuki is worth about 15$, and if I remember the last time I bought one for a Yamaha it was about the same. Clean-up or replace your plug, if your bike hasn't been running properly. Also make sure that the gap is close to what is recommended in your manual.

  15. Hi All, First post here. Just bought a 2001 LT-F500F Quadrunner and am looking for any manuals. I would like to get a copy of the original Suzuki owner and service manuals, and would also like the Clymer as well. I have looked at the sticky's and these manuals are not there. I was able to find the 2002 manual but i'm not sure how accurate the information is. In the 2002 manual it says the carburetor for that year was a Keihin CVK36, but the one that I took off the bike is a Mikuni (not sure of the size, it was pretty gummed up and is in the soak now). If someone had any of these in .pdf to share that would be great but, I'm not opposed to paying to download these manual's. I just don't know what sites are reputable places to download manuals from. Any help any one could offer would be appreciated.
