sounds like the axle shaft u-joint is shot. just replaced one of mine in the rearend. $300 from Suzuki.
could you tell me what size your tires front and rear are? I'm trying to find out what the factory size for my quad is. it's the same as yours. thanks

Ok thanks man for the info, the front tires are 23 x 8 x 11, and the backs are 25 x 10 x 12. Just wondering how you find your bike, I like mine pretty good for a 300.

love it. I got buddies with 700 grizzlies and big can am's and others and I can crawl through holes that they can't. I can't do 70 miles an hour though. the independant rear suspension is what makes this bike so smooth to operate. I see these guys bouncing around and it feels pretty good on mine.

do you know if those are factory tire sizes? my bike has 24's on the front not 23's. I'd like to stay the same ratio between front and rear. just don't know what these came with factory and apparently 91 is very old and there is no documentation for it.

I love mine to, like you said, It might not do 70mph, but it just crawls through anything in Diff Lock, it might only do about 5 mph in diff lock/super low, but the torque that it has in that gear is amazing for a 300, pulls like a beast, it can go anywhere my buddies sportsman 500 can go and then some more, except up hill. it doesn't have the power to go up hills the sportsman can.

As for the tires, im not sure, they aren't stock, thats all I know, if i find out what stock size is i'll post it up, should be the same as any other 300 king-quad, so try looking for specs on like a 1999, basically identical, except newer ones have round headlights, but the older ones are rectangular.

Hey there,i just bought my 1996 King Quad 300.i have a factory sized set on my bike,ill check over easter because its at my holiday house.having just one problem,the bike is revving itself up when it gets hot but when i flick the choke on fully and off again it calms down but just starts again after about 5 seconds.Can anyone help with this? im thinking it could be the float in the carburetor stuck as it was garaged for 2 years (the petrol was never switched off!) and not started.Any help would be appreciated

definately sounds fuel related. mine does something similar, I just play with the idle adjust. crank it up while it's cold and down when it's warm. I need to do the carb on mine, it sat for a while too. pull the carb and clean it with cleaner(that is every orface it has) or have a shop do that for you

let me know when you get the factory sizes and thanks

Check the carb mounting boot and gasket for cracks. If there are cracks it lets air leak by causing the revving condition.
