i am posting this thru my cousins account. but i have a 1987 250x, completely stock. no mods, and still has the original tires. never torn apart, and to my knowledge the only thing ever done to it has been a new air filter, chain and oil. oh yea, and a new 11 or 12 tooth sprocket in the front. this quad has been thru mud, water, flipped, rock-crawled, hill climbs, high RPM's, and jus about anything else u could think of. and i have let it sit for months at a time, u kno u shouldnt be doing that right? well i did. and yes, sweat built up in the gastank, and i DID spray ether into the airbox. ill touch on this in a second. needless to say i LOVE my quad. having said all that i will now say this. this weekend, my buddy let me borrow his LTZ 400. i would say its between a 2003-2005 model. it is clean, and new and should be working. right? WRONG. this "zuki" has sat for a couple of months without being cranked. so i went to pick it up friday. my buddy was doing a few last minute checks on it before i loaded it into my truck. saturday rolls around, and might i mention i did a few things to assure it ran myself. we thought we "loosened" up the trash in the carb. i found out saturday we didnt. the b*tch loaded up constantly, and i couldnt ride like i wanted. electric start finally killed the battery after firing it up what seemed like 100 times on the trail... all because the carb was loading up and killing the motor. my day was cut short, and frustrated me. so we loaded it up and took it back to fix it. we took off the carb. this whole experience was veeerrry dificult. we took the plastics off, and it took about a whole hour to get the carb off. we cleaned it( it was sooo full of trash) and put it all back together. tried firing it once again and while it did run, all we did was shake it side to side, before it would die. i have nooo idea whats going on with this thing. having said all of this, after i got frustrated with quad, i hopped on my 87' 250x, kicked it ONE TIME, and ran it like its supposed to run. im sorry suzuki, but u will never ever be a HONDA.
