Cant anyone tell me where to adjust the clutch on a 96 - 300 king quad. Everything work great on this old brute & I love the 3 speed sub transmission
but the clutch does some slipping (jumping) when taking off then its ok.
I,m guessing you know where the oil site glass and oil filter is on the right side behind tire. To the left of those you will see three bolt heads like the oil filter
cover bolts, in the center of those is a bolt head that has a washer type unit
connected to it approx a 13 mm bolt head. Take bolt and washer unit loose its
just a cover for clutch adjustment. With that removed you will see a set screw
(phillips head) and a lock nut on set screw, hold set screw and loosen nut, put quad in first gear (engine off) turn set screw in until you fell it hit and turn it back
1/8 of a turn then tighten lock nut. I had to do this a couple times to get mine to stop slipping. Go for a ride see if its better and repeat if needed. Don,t start with adjustment cover off it will blow oil everywhere.
Great, thats what I need. I will give it a try soon as I get off work today, I dont really run the quad much or hard at all but
want to do everything to keep it going sense it seems all quads are automatics anymore.
Ok OLdschool I forgot to add, I use standard 10w40 oil & no I dont ride in any water. The slipping started recently, I farm alittle and have serveral others I use the more. I set the king quad up with a truck battery on the front rack, quick connects, air compresso on the back rack with a small rear wrench & use the quad like a service vehicle, mainly to jump start equipment
or pump up tires. I added a cheap auto type voltmeter on the left side fender & hooked the big battery into the suzuki wiring
the quad does a good job of keeping the big battery charged & I never have to worry about a dead or weak battery anymore.
