Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.
I am working on a friends 2006 Suzuki LT-Z50 that they purchased not running. I took apart the carb to rebuild it and someone had already been in there... They really destroyed the Air/Fuel Mixture opening in the body of the carb.. It is in no way repairable.
I have not been able to find an aftermarket carb to fit this model.
Does anyone know if an aftermarket carb is available?
Thanks for any help.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Back again with another headache, maybe you guys can help me out.
Picked up a 87 Bayou 300 not running of course, all stator wires melted
on the motor and also no spark. I checked the pick up coil ohmed out good.
traced the wires and led to no cdi box, yes missing. So ordered it and while waited
fixed the stator wires, had to wire direct to harness. Get the cdi installed and after a lot
of other things started it up. Battery dead so used a batt charger to start it. Now when i shut
off the charger the motor died. So i check charging voltage...nada. I see voltage regulator is
old and catalist leaking so i replaced it. Same thing no charge. I check stator and no voltage
with it unpluged from harness while running. Soooooo i replace stator. Now Stator wires have
23v and up to over 50v at higher rpms. So i know its charging now. Connect everything back up and
no charge voltage at battery! Still dies when i shut off charger. All 3 yellow stator wires have good voltage, checked
harness from stator to regulator and is good. The white wire has battery voltage at regulator, the brown wire has battery
voltage at regulator when key on. The Black/yellow stripe has good ground. I get 3 volts at battery when i shut off charger.
If i connect old regulator i get 7 volts when i shut off charger. Do i have a defective new regulator? Im stumped. when i
figure this one out i have a big wiring problem on another one ill let you in on. Az
