95 King Quad - no electrical power

I had a thread here a while back where my 95 King Quad wouldn't engage the starter. Popular opinion was that it was the solenoid but it was finally determined to be the starter, I had it rebuilt, and all was well.

This weekend, my son was riding and said the bike just cut off on him and was then completely dead. I've tested the battery and it has full voltage and the connections at the battery are clean and tight. However, now when we turn the key on, we get no dash lights or anything. No solenoid click when the starter button is pressed. We've checked all of the connections and fuses we can find and get to.

Before I start tearing it down again, does anyone have a detailed troubleshooting procedure, including where I could check things with a meter to trace where the power flow is getting stopped? If I'm not getting power to the dash, is that probably something early on in the wiring or even the switch?

There are 2 blade fuses in the front battery compartment. Little white and black boxes. Did you check those?

Get your manual. Its combined with the 87 QR. Good WDM's in the back to jump through your wires.

I dont have a manual. Sort of inherited this quad and it didnt include anything but a key. How can i check those fuses with a meter and if one is bad, are they generally available auto type parts or do i have to get from a dealer or bike shop?

Click the link I posted to download the manual. And thank Oxidized Black for the kind service.

Standard automotive blade fuses. A 5 and 10 amp and a spare each. If not obviously blown, check continuity with multi-meter.

I had a chance to start looking at this problem today and found a blown fuse. There are two fuses in the battery box. One has a 15a blade fuse and appears to be fine. The other has a 20a fuse and was clearly blown (even though my son checked them earlier and said none were blown). The problem now is something is causing the fuses to blow almost immediately after turning on the key switch. I tried using the spare 20a that was there and it blew right away. I tried yet another and it also blew. Any idea where or how to look for what may be causing this???????

Check the wring for any shorts or loose grounds, that can possibly be the source to your problem.

Anything extra on it like a winch, hand warmers, power point?

Nope, completely stock. The fact that it cutoff during a ride tells me maybe something got wet or a wire broke off somewhere, but i have no idea where to start looking. If i find it, it will be pure luck.

I will thank OB for the kind service but when I login to that website, all but one of the manuals show that they are expired and not available any longer, including the one I would need.

Go to the folders tab then crack the suzuki folder.

Also WDM attached from my Clymer manual. ID your blown fuse and then isolate circuits from there. You'll need extra good fuses to test.
