New owner of bayou 220, 300 4x4, 400 4x4

Recommended Posts

I want to change oil in these three machines, what is the recommended oil? Rotella t4? Is atv oil really needed or is it a fear thing that makes you feel you need to pay double for special oils? 

I drove ATVs years ago, big reds, Yamahas and Suzuki's in the 1980s and just used regular oil with never a clutch slippage issue.  I know oil got more evolved since then and tons of additives.

It's important to make sure that the oil has the additives for the clutches which regular motor oil does not. I've always used ATV oil, like Valvoline ATV oil and it's worked well. I've used the Valvoline atv oil in my kawasaki bayou 220, kingquad 700, and grizzly 660 without issues.

You can get in on Amazon, and also look at the auto parts stores like Advance Auto

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      Hi guys
      My 87 Bear 350 won't start and could use a hand.
      Turn key on and Oil light turns on and then slowly fades out. (I think this is key to this) No start, not even a tick.
      battery and connections good
      A Solenoid post jump turns it over
      Neutral Safety Switch wire attached and seems good
      It has not had a wire/switch on Rear Brake Pedal ever since I had it.
      Any thoughts on some other things to troubleshoot this??

      I plan on using my ATV to hunt. What have you found to be the best method for carrying your rifle that is secure and allows removing quickly to pursue an animal?
