Suzuki quads

I was just given my first two. Both 250 four strokes, both '87s, I think, ones a 4wd. Both are rough cosmetically but I should be able to make them run again. I'm sure I will have a lot of questions to ask during the process. I will post some pics soon.

Actually, it turns out one is an '85 250 and the 4wd is a '91 300 (?). The rope start does not "catch" to turn the engine on the '91 and it has no battery so I have not yet been able to check for compression on it. The '85 does seem to have good compression when I pull the rope. Although they both look so rough I am almost embarrassed to post pics, here they are. They are fresh, literally, out of the bushes they were overgrown up in when I took these . The package deal includes one more, a 50cc, I think, for my grandsons, that I'm told is ready to ride, but I have not seen it yet. I don't know if it is a Yamaha, Honda, or ? It may turn out that neither of these are worth "fixing" but if so I will have lost nothing but a little time, as they were freebies. And, I have most of the parts not shown. Some parts were removed by the previous owner and I had already loaded them for hauling whel the pictures were taken.

First step in figuring out if I have anything worth fixing...
the '85 without the plastic so I can begin to diagnose and inventory what I have.
After looking at what some others on here have started with, I am encouraged. I think I can fix these two machines. I will post some pics of the '92 4wd when I make some progress on it.
This makes two times I've posted this. It disappeared after a short time the first time. What gives?

My next step in getting this quad to run, (or not) was to check out and clean the fuel system so I removed the gas tank to clean it out. The pint or so of whatever remained in the tank smelled like alcohol. I will remove and clean the carb and all the lines next, then move on to the ignition system and wiring necessary for the engine to start and run.
If the engine runs, I will have this thing so far apart already, I'm thinking I should go ahead and do a frame-up resto on it!

When you clean the carb, install a carb kit as well.

I got my other one, the '92 4wd, home today. As is the norm, my helpers, when it's my turn, had something more important to do, so I was on my own. No trailer was available to me so I had to haul it in my old daily driver Studebaker truck. The quad has a couple of tires that won't stay inflated so it was a little difficult to load. I picked the front up with a patient lift thing that I have, like a mini-cherry picker. After I had it standing on it's rear I backed the truck up to it and then picked up the rear.

Looks like I might have better luck switching horses and seeing if I can get the '92 4wd one running first.
I started trying to figure out the ignition system on the 250 and realized I am missing a few more pieces than I thought. Possibly I have enough to make it run though. The engine side cover has not been removed so the magneto and internal parts should be intact. At least the wires are still extending out through the engine case. I have the CDI unit and rectifier, still bolted to the battery box, just not attached to the bike. I do not have the ignition key switch or the handle-bar kill switch but I can run without these, right?
All the parts that I do have are condition unknown as of now.
I had found, on here, a thread with simplified wiring explanations that I thought would be exactly what I need to check mine out but unfortunately the wiring colors don't match what I have so I am not any better off. The diagrams must be for a different year model?
I need to decide how much time and effort I intend to devote to this project and draw the line.
