    • Man that’s a tough gremlin you got going on.  So the only few  things that could be doing this then is a short within the wiring maybe along the frame ?  Could be a bad connection on one of the plugs even the single pin and sleeve plugs that are all over the harness. Maybe take them apart, clean up and add some dialectic grease and reconnect.  Check to see that your ignition switch is ok, I’ve seen some people find that wiggling the switch allowed the bike to fire up due to poor contacts within the switch that sends voltage to the cdi.  Some only have two wires, a brown and white, if so then it’s good if your getting dash lights but check thats your model.   You tested continuity on the kill switch that it’s opening and closing yes ?  You checked continuity from each phase of the stator to ground yes ? (Should get no continuity)  Main fuse on the starter relay? Im just throwing random shit out there and trying to jog my memory from my bayou.     
    • OK, I swapped the regulators and still no spark, so far I've swapped CDI, spark plug, coil, regulator.  I've checked resistance on stator, and pickup.  I have lights, starter, etc, it's just an ignition issue, not sure what I'm missing, I'd like to make sure I test everything I can before I start taking side covers off.   Thanks!  
    • I was just looking at the manual and that does seem weird that it just slides off. Are there any bolts/brackets missing on the swing arm or any bushingS that seem not right ? There should be a constant pressure holding all that together.  The bayou is a little different and locks in with all four of the bolt you see on the bevel gear housing case.   I would definitely inspect every bushing and bolt back there and make sure everything is tight.  How do the universal joints look and feel ?    You could spray it good with a cleaner and add a drop of silicone then slide it back in and let it dry. Maybe that will stop if from sliding out.  My last guess is that the seal itself has worn down from rotation and has gotten shorter which means replacement.  
    • Yeah the earlier picture with boot still on was from the side view.  The one just posted above is from rear view looking forward.  I had just pulled the swingarm off.  The driveshaft simply slid off the splined shaft pictured.  I’ll try to get more pictures tomorrow evening.  The plastic ring is listed as oil seal in parts diagram.  Like I mentioned above, it wasn’t fully seated around the splined shaft; it was crocked around the shaft.  I shoved it back into the opening as far as it would go.  I’m just not sure what would keep it from working it’s way back again though.
    • I’m sorry I thought you took it apart and screwed the nuts  on for safe keeping.  So that drive shaft pops on and what holds it in place? It looks different from the previous pic you posted. A lot dirtier lol.  So you unbolted the swing arm and backed it off ? I have only taken the bayous apart and they are very similar so forgive me for being a little confused. Post a few more pics if you can.
