Hello all, I have a 2001 Suzuki 300 King Quad. I'm having electrical issues as we speak. About 3 weeks ago, my 300KQ just quit. Tried starting it and nothing, but after it sat for a while it fired up and got me back to the house. The next day, after about 5 minutes of riding, it did the same exact thing. I coasted it down a well road and when I got to the bottom I tried starting it and it started and I drove it back to the house which is less than 5 minutes from where I got it started. I pulled the plug to see if it was getting spark, but no spark. after sitting for about 1 1/2 hours it started and I put it away. The next day I changed the plug and ordered a new coil figuring that might be the issue since it would start and run fine then die after about 5 minutes of riding. Before the new coil arrived, I hosed the bike off, since I use it for feeding cattle, the bike was filthy. After this and before the new coil arrived I let the bike idle to dry and it stayed running. When the new coil arrived, the bike continued running like it did before the problem. Ran the bike for a week or so and the problem surfaced again, so I changed out the coil with the new one I ordered. Still no spark after changing out the old coil with the new. I pushed it in the barn, and the very next day it started, so I let it idle and after 5 minutes it died. I pulled the plug, and nothing. No spark again. So today after it sat for 24 hours, I pulled the plug and fired it and had spark again. I put the plug back in and started it up and this time it idled for about 3 minutes and quit. I pulled the plug and fired it, and again no spark. Can someone please help me out as to what might be going on?? Thanks in advance, Brad
