My 2013 Suzuki 750 King quad EFI will start but if you move the steering it shuts down. Also, when slowing to a stop, the bike stalls. Each time the bike stalls it immediately starts.

Sounds like you have a wire that is ALMOST broken or the insulation is worn off and grounding, or turning is pulling a wire loose from a connection. .. this type of problem is HARD to trace down sometimes... good luck

Engine locked on Suzuki 230 quad sport

Hi, Alisa I don't know if it heat seized or trans locked up or just plane broke but it is going to require major surgery for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.

Bike will not start, have lights, etc., no sounds at all, happened several times before, took to dealer they could not find anything wrong, bike was returned to me, started and ran fine, now it has...

Might be a faulty side stand lockout switch. They're subject to a lot of wear, tear and grime and tend to wear out. So your bike thinks the side stand is down when it isn't locking your bike out so it won't start. Failing that it may be a faulty neutral switch, again the bike doesn't know it is in neutral so doesn't start.
I am going to state the obvious also, is your main kill switch turned on?

Suzuki marauder 125cc t reg starts and runs fine but soon as select gear engine turns off

Your kickstand may have to be up otherwise the bike will shut off.... saftey switch may be bad if kickstand is up.

I have a 1986 its either a 230 or a 250 cc not sure which one but anyway my kicker is stuck cant move at all i can pull the quad and jump start it but i cant move the kicker any suggestions

Remove the spark plug then drain the oil then remove the kick lever then the right side cover. Take a look at the kick mechanism. Remount the kick lever and gently move it downward. What is stopping the movement? The clutch assembly will probably need to come off to get a good view. Find the VIN, not the engine number, and then go to the site below. There you can enter the VIN and the site will decode the number free. That will tell you what size the engine is and what model of quad you have. Next go to the Babbitts site and look up the parts diagram for the kick start. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Suzuki 250cc quad bike wont start, just clicks when you press the start button anyone got any ideas

Three causes:

1: Dirty battery terminals

2: Battery is flat or dying

3: The starter motor is dead and all that is happening is the solenoid is clicking in and out
