Starter motor fitted couldn’t get it started but sounds a lot better and it wanted to fire up got a few puffs out the exhaust but think I need more fuel as it low! So going to try that and see. Still makes a funny noise when starting which I now think is the chain hitting the metal plate behind it as it’s been cut off around the starter motor for some reason!?!?!

Chain on the starter motor is loose so I think it’s skipping on a full rotation and someone cut the plate off around the old starter motor 🤔🙈

Had a faulty coil so swapped it over and got it fired up 👌🏻 (New one on order) but cuts out when you give it some throttle! So next job is the carb

Technically, there is no such thing as a Suzuki "Quadzilla".
It is a Suzuki LT500 Quadracer.
2-stroke, 5 speed, manual clutch, no reverse, kick start only, made from 1987-1990.
Quadzilla was a nickname that stuck, as it was the largest cc engine and one of, if not the quickest and fastest 4 wheelers made for many years, and is still up there at the top today.

Thanks engine is very good need to try and find out how many miles it’s done when I get time to look at the speedo. Got a new exhaust to go on there was I don’t like the look of the one on there at the moment
