I am looking at a used 2009 without power steering. I would like to here reviews from people who have owned one. I have a Rincon 680 and was going to buy another one, but found a good deal on a Kingquad. Any info will be greatly appreciated!

I have a 2008 KQ 750...I love mine. Wouldn't own any other ATV. Very Reliable like Rooster said. He put a LOT miles on here and it was great.

It only has 12 miles on it and has aftermarket wheels and tires and a seat backrest. It looks showroom new. The price is $5,300. The only thing that I don't like is the 14x27 Swamp Lite tires. The wheels and tires came on it from the dealer and look brand new. How does the price sound?

It is a buyers market right now. Not a bad price. Is this at a Dealership, Individual. Those 14x27 will be hard to turn without a Clutch Mod Kit. The only red flag I see is 12 miles. Kinda of Low for that year.

Yeah....not too bad. I looked at a 2011 Blue 750 with PS and it was $7400 plus tax.

It is truly a new machine. The guy bought it new and rode it on his land to check on loggers. They finished and he has no use for it. It even smells new. I bought it and put about 15 miles on it today. I like it better than I thought that I would. Very nice machine!

I loved my 750 KQ --- chattdc has it now ....
Around 4k miles and i swear it seemed stronger and faster at 4 k than when it was new ...
I changed the oil all the time --- like rediculous ....I didnt use the most fancy oil but i used new oil .....
Also for the lords sake GREASE the crud out of the bottom of the air filter so it seals up real good with theair box and use a uni filter or another great better air filter ....

The only thing the KQ will do is it will punch the living chit out of you ,,,
Hit a small stump gping 35 with the left outside edge of your tire and you will face plant and break yer Thumb to unless you are really holing it tight and firm ...
Shamless advertising

I have a precision stabalizer here that will make the steering about 2000 % better ...
If Boot dont want it ill sell it to ya ....

Look at them and aske around --- it will save you from a broken thumb ..
Now if you dont ride aggresively you might not need it ..

If you like to ride pretty quick i highly reccomend it .
Just look at the GNCC raceers there aint a single bike out there without one ...
I thhink they sale 570 new - ill take half that --- id prolly take 200 ....

I hate to here that about the steering. I almost broke my wrist when I hit a root on my Rincon. I really wanted power steering, but when I felt how easy the steering is I thought that I really didn't need it. I do ride real aggressive at times.

My wife and sons had taken over the Rincon and now they want the Kingquad. I guess that I will have to sell the Rincon and get something with PS for me.

I have a Suzuki LT160, Suzuki Eiger 400 4x4 and a Honda TRX 300 2WD for sale if anybody is interested. All are excellent.

Thanks for all of the replies!

Mike,

The steering is not a big problem if you are aware of it. There is plenty of information about that and other Mods over on the NYROC forum. There are several things I done to mine that I felt were essential. Here are a few of the links.

Grease Zerk Mod

Deep Water (Playing in the Mud Holes will need this sometimes)

Castor Mod

The Complete NYROC Suzuki KingQuad Section on issues
http://www.nyrocatv.com/techtip.cgi?viewcat=11&viewtopic=504&searchtext=caster%20mod



Don;t be alarmed but what you might read. You will find on that forum that the information is realiable. If you have any questions about the King Quad shoot me a PM and I will try to answer you from my experiences.

The Front Castor issue is something to be aware about. The King Quads have a 1.6 degree Castor (non PS Models) and all other wheelers have more like 4 degrees. Makes the King Quad easier to steer. What that translates to his what some people refer to as bump steer problem or going full lock when least expecting it. With Bigger wheels and tires it is more of a problem. Going down the trails at speed and riding agressive you need to be aware of it. Hitting a Root or Rock at the right force and angle could throw you off the front of the handle bars. The worst scenerio, is traveling down hill, and making a hard turn left or right at the bottom of the hill. The Front will tend to dive and try to roll you forward and in the direction of the turn.

All these issues can be solved with a little reading and some patiences. The King Quad is a great machine with just a few little quirks.

I haven't ever noticed the issue with the steering on mine. I didn't on my 450 either. I guess I just don't notice it for some reason.

One thing Rooster can tell you.....DO NOT EVER buy All Balls Ball Joints! They can get you hurt very quick. I use All Balls products for everything else though...such as tie rod ends, bearings and such...but the Ball Joints are dangerous. Roosters experiance it first hand. Lucky he was not hurt.


One of the best mods you can do though is get in contact with Coop 45 or Tony James on Nyroc and get the Coop mod 3+ done to your primary. Its worth every penny. Also, I would get the Dalton HAC clutch kit. It will say 29.5" tires or larger...but IGNORE that. Its only a total of 18.5 gram rollers. Or you can get the EPI yellow secondary spring and 18 gram roller weights from EPI. If you get the Dalton kit the rollers come with new covers. That is what I have and I personally like the Dalton Orange spring better....and I have tried every spring they make for the KQ's. Since your running 27" tires a clutch kit is a must IMO.

If you need any help with any thing just let me know. I love both the KQ's I have owned. Very good machines. They have a few things that needs to be modded like every bike you buy.

I will probably go to stock wheels and 25 or 26" Big Horn 2.0 tires. I had ITP wheels and 12x25 Terra Cross tires on my Rincon and they made the bump steer worse. Should I go with the 25 or 26" tires? Which clutch mod with smaller tires? I try to only trail ride and stay out of the mud if possible. I am going to put the wheels and tires off of my Rincon on and see how I like it. They are stock wheels with 25" BH 2.0 tires.

Thanks for all the info everybody!

I ran 26" bighorns with the EPI yellow spring and lighter rollers. Also had the shim mod. Turned them with no problem.

I agree with the coop mod or any simalr mod --
I do ot agree with zerks only because my shims looked brand new at 3500
I squitted wd 40 at them every ride seemd to sink in ---Chatt dc will have them apart again soon and we will know .

But anything to stablize the steering -- i found it to be really really bad to bump steer .
Do all the mods you feel up to with that but be careful 0 some of those are alittle harder than it would seem and you dont get alot of bang ....

I say you buy a precision stablizer - its amazing - what are they 570 new .
I got one for 200 ...

Im not just trying to sale you the dang thing i could sale it on e bay overnight at that price - im just saying even with all the other mods its great to have one -- nice thing about them is they are adjustable so if you are riding the Cove or trail 12 at wind rock you can turn it up --- if you are crusing around royal blue on those Jeep trails TWRA carved out of the sweet atv trails you can turn it down and haul it .....

Update. I sold the KQ after I did the caster mod and put 100 miles on it. It just didn't fit my riding style as well as my Rincon. I am thinking about a Can-Am with PS.

It was a nice machine with good power and features, but my Rincon rides a little smoother and handles a little better. The caster mod improved the steering a lot, but didn't take enough of the bump steer out for me. I have had previous wrist injuries and need something with PS.

It must be me....after owning two KQ's. A 450 & 750 I don't notice this bump steer everyone has issues with. Maybe all my Yamaha's done the same thing. I'm going to pay a lot of attention when I'm out riding and see if I notice it.

I felt it most when going down a hill and turning and hit a bump, root, rock. It will cause the wheels, handlebars to instantly go to full lock. If you are used to it and have strong wrists and arms it probably wouldn't be as noticeable.
