    I used to have 3 of these mid 80s Suzuki LT230s every one of them broke that side cover at some point when the chain would come off. There was supposed to be another bold in that cover where you were digging but it gets ripped off by the chain. I ended up buying new covers and making guards out of 1/8x1 flat bar. Solved that problem. The decompression was operated by a hand lever that was on the left hand bar and pointed up above the clutch lever. It was like a bicycle hand brake lever. I never used it but all of mine had it. Those are awesome quads. They go forever and got a ton of power. Great find and good job getting it back to life.

      Same experience here - my dad took the engine to his shop and had the bolt hole welded up, cover repaired, and retapped. My decompression lever never worked properly, spent a lot of time pulling it up hills to push start it. Ended up selling it after a top-end rebuild didn't fix other problems it had.

    If it is seized just remove the spark plug put it in 2nd gear and use some oil in the cylinders and put in gear use rear tire gently back and forth until engine frees up. very easy.

    I enjoy the hell out of making things work again, Love it when i get what most would consider junk and throw away and turn into working devices again, Many of the machines and even tools i have were thrown away by others, Perfect example is a miller welder i picked up at our local dump, The guy was throwing it and the bottle away because it didnt work anymore and he had purchased a new one, ( I thought to myself it must be nice to be fucking rich) I took it home replaced a 79 cent fuse and fixed, Free 800 dollar wire welder YAY for me. I use it all the time it works great way better than the cheapo welder i had.

    here's a story about a bike at spring clean up, when i was a kid ( i'm 35 now) i had a honda 200m 3 wheeler and my cousin drove it into the lake at our camp and it never worked again, my dad rebuilt the whole thing, put tons of new parts on it, new spark plugs everything you do when you drown one of these things, and nothing would work, it sat in our barn for a few years then one day at my dad got sick of it taking up room in the garage and put it out at the curb during spring clean up, the guy across the street that already had a fleet of 3 wheeler's and a 4 wheeler comes over and pushes it up the drive way, 20 minutes later he comes riding back down on it, turns out the brand new spark plug was faulty when we got it, he asked if we wanted to buy it back for 600 bucks.

    A couple years ago I came across this same qaud and I got it for free but it was in much better condition (still didn't run) and I got it for free but at the time I was only 9 and didn't realize how much I could have gotten for it so I listed it for 100 and got 150 for it but I could have gotten at least 700 on it

    mustie when you took it out of gear you should have just lowered it back down might have made starting it easier on your spine.

    I am really starting to believe that most of mustie's trash finds are staged,fake,not real. His repairs are awesome but his finds are becoming more and more unbelievable.

      @Mustie1 As a guy who is about the same age as you that enjoys and has worked on many old motorcycles,cars,equipment I can and have said that your trouble shooting repair videos are some of the most realistic that you can find on you tube, When I see you trying to kick start or pull start a problematic engine to get it to fire up I feel the frustration. I understand that to keep the videos coming you need projects and as guy that has spent time dumpster diving I know that good finds are far a few these days with craigslist and many other avenues to sell old dirt bikes,snowblowers,and other non running things. I will take your word for it that these are not staged garbage finds. Thanks for the videos.

    Bad lower rod bearings it allows to the Piston to go to low and it seized up but when you turn the crank backwards it frees it up I've seen this a lot you might get some rides out of this but most likely it needs rebuilt

    That's an 1986 Suzuki quadsport 230. It has a decompression lever on the left handle bar above the clutch. It's a 5 speed manual transmission with reverse. It's the quadracers little brother.
