  1. oxidized_black I am looking for the service manual for a 1997 Suzuki king quad. I do not know if the 1999 manual you have is similar but it might help. I would appreciate a look see. I am having carb issues with the mikuni carb (19BE)...have completely disassembled and cleaned the carb, but cannot figure out how to adjust the pilot needle. Was set to 3 turns out, but idling rough. Thanks Chet
  2. Thanks...removed the diaphragm, removed all the jets..soaked the whole carb in carb cleaner...still have a question regarding the setting of the pilot needle adjustment...it is a mikuni 19BE K681...pilot was set at 3 turns out, but the unit still is not idling right...since I removed the plug for cleaning I now have access to that adjustment...any clues? Float is not sticking. Thanks Chet

  4. My neighbor who had hip surgery 6 years ago parked his King Quad in a shed and it has not been fired up since that time. He replaced the battery, but could not get the unit to run. He asked me for assistance, so we towed the unit over to my shop. I got the unit running, but could not keep it idling without turning up the the RPMs...and when I tried to drive the unit it seems like it ran out of gas after a couple of hundred yards. I tore the carburetor out...dropped the float bowl and discovered a bug (about the size of a housefly) in the bottom. I removed the bug...cleaned what jets and other components I could, put the unit back together...with the same results. I once again removed the carburetor...have removed the plug for access to the pilot needle adjustment and I am preparing to dunk the whole unit into a can of carburetor cleaner. I cannot get the diaphragm screws loose and was wondering if that would hurt the rubber diaphragm if I just left it on the carb...and what should the pilot needle adjustment be set to. Any help would be appreciated. Chet P.S. What should the fuel switch under the gas tank be set to. On-Pri-Reserv
