This is a tank
I bought a 1999 300 king quad last year. After replacing front and rear brake shoes , wheel cylinders and a good tune up this thing runs great. Use it mostly for hunting season and some light trail riding. Seems to be able to go anywhere that I need to go. Do wish mine has front disc brakes tho. Drum brakes feel a little sluggish. Over all a great atv.
Just bought a new 300king Quad to replace my old one that was 18 years old. I suspect the new one will outlive me. They are built tough and I use it for spraying, chasing stock, towing a small trailer used for flower picking as well as a built on platform for picking proteas. This new one has moved spray unit forward for stability but that meant the tool box has also and is now very hard to access.
Ultimate farm machine
This quad is a tried and proven design spanning over 20 years. Hence it won't have all of the modern features and technology of some of the other Japanese (or Korean / Nth American / European anf tome Chinese) brands.
What it does well is what it is designed for. It is a work horse hat can go anywhere, it can drive over hilly areas with ease because it is light, low and good clearance. The 4wd is very good, as is the diff lock and lo / ultra lo and normal drive modes. I keep mine in mid range 4wd with the lock off.
The independent rear su...spension means that all four wheels stay on the ground, which I like as my last quad had a solid rear axle which was very strong but enabled a wheel to occasionally leave the ground. This is a mid size machine for a mid price, nothing is spectacular, except that it comes together as an all round reliable, easy to drive semi auto load carrier. If it could be improved, I would say it would be with an EFI motor the same size but the rest can and should stay the same. Good price, easy to ride, will go anywhere at a reasonable speed for the conditions, stable and comfortable. nothing I can think of

Questions & Answers
what size tires?
I have sold up but front and rear tyres were different sizes. Mine was purchased from Kessler Suzuki Adelaide. They would know.
where do you find the identification plate on a king quad 300 4x4
Now that quads are no longer sold in Australia, can you still get spares forr them, I have a 300 suzuki king quad, how much are new tyres
My bike is about 3-4year old and only done 2500kms. I haven’t needed any spares yet but Kessler Motor Cycles on Main North Road in Adelaide supplied anything I need in the way of filters / air cleaners etc to my local mechanic.
