Need help with 2000-2001 quadmaster 500 LT-A500

Recommended Posts

I am restoring two ATV for my bro-in-law and don't have the owners manual...I do have the service manual.

1- when I turn the key to the ON position and the motor NOT running or running....the thermostat light (red light in lower right corner of dash) is on right from the get go....is that normal? 

I suspect that should be off and comes one when the motor is overheating.

NOTE: the fan did come on after driving around a bit.

If that is not normal, what would cause that to be on as soon as the motor is started? Faulty temp/fan switch?

 

2 - what is the cheapest source for the various parts? I am looking for a speedo cable, and some various screws that hold the fuel tank cover and its side panels on as well as some of the small screw/bolts that hold the front fender.

also looking for some of the speedo gasket and dampers

DAMPER 34114-09F00 (looks like a gasket
DAMPER 34188-09F00 (looks like a rubber bushing and spacer)
 
 
Thanks in advance.

Why am I not getting responses? grrr

so the red light issue is fixed...used a multimeter set to continuity and I had continuity on a cold temp sender...bought a new one and the red light is gone...I haven't tested the new one in a pot of boiling water yet, but suspect it is fine.

 

finding that the suzuki parts are bloody expensive...ebay seems to be the cheapest source.

      1988-2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 Service Manual
      The Kawasaki Bayou 220 is one of the most common all-terrain vehicles on off-road trails that is geared toward novice riders and families. It’s also one of the smallest and most inexpensive ATVs on the market, with a retail price under $3,500, as of 2010. The Bayou 220 is Kawasaki’s only ATV of its size. The 220’s sibling is the larger Bayou 250 equipped with a 228cc engine.
      Engine
      The Bayou 220’s engine is a 215cc, four-stroke, shaft-driven, air-cooled model. Its bore measures 2.6 inches and the stroke is 2.4 inches. It features a relatively high 9.3:1 compression ratio with fuel delivered through a Mikuni VM24SS carburetor. The electronic ignition is Kawasaki’s DC-CDI. It also features a recoil backup as a starting system. The clutch is an automatic wet multidisc model with power delivered to the wheels via a five-speed transmission, according to ATV Source.
      Chassis
      The steel frame supports a front suspension with single A-arms and twin shock absorbers, with the rear suspension a Quad-Link system with two shocks. Front wheel travel is 4.5 inches, while the rear wheel travel measures at 4.9 inches. Front and rear brakes are drums.
      Size
      The front tire size is AT21X8-9 with the rear tires measuring AT22X10-10. The ATV’s wheelbase is 43.9 inches, with an overall length of 68.7 inches. Ground clearance is 6.1 inches with the seat height measuring 28.7 inches. It weighs 403 lbs. and can tow up to 450 lbs. Its fuel tank can carry 2.6 gallons.
      Basics
      The Kawasaki Bayou 220 is not the fastest ATV on the market, but one reason the Bayou 220 has kept its price low is the lack of amenities. It features a brake light and dual headlamps with high/low beam. There is an auxiliary lighting terminal inside the front cover of the ATV and electrical accessory terminals under the seat. The instrument cluster atop the fuel tank features a fuel gauge, but not much else. There are no speedometer, odometer, hourmeter, tripmeter, high-beam indication or high-temperature light. It does have a reverse/neutral indicator light. The Bayou comes in two colors: hunter green and firecracker red.
      Features
      The front A-arm, twin shock and rear Quad-Link twin-shock suspension system is not a true fully independent system, but it allows for a comfortable ride over rough terrain without employing a complex and expensive, fully independent suspension system. The ATV features front and rear steel cargo racks. The ATV is rider-friendly with a limited adjustable throttle to help novices practice their riding skills without twisting the throttle too far and losing control of the vehicle.

      Friends, being the owner of a far from new ATV, I often come across a search for various owner's manuals, service guides, parts manuals, etc. It is not easy to find suitable documents for every quad. Therefore, I present to your attention a website that contains various instructions for ATVs from well-known manufacturers: https://www.ATVownersmanual.com
      Currently only 3 manufacturers are represented here: Can-Am, Polaris, Yamaha - and only about 1200 instructions for various models. Little later other brands and missing instructions will be added.
      What will be convenient for you: all documents are in PDF format. If necessary, you can download them to your computer and use offline. The documents are structured by brand, year and model. There is no advertising (yet).
      I am happy to hear criticism and recommendations. If you have missing or rare instructions, send them to PM or to the website's email: info [...at...] atvownersmanual [...dot...] com.
