I recently acquired an old Bayou from a neighbor that I cleaned up a got running, then from nowhere a problem crops up where it refuses to start........ I pull the plug and it has no spark, pulled the plug cap off and laid the bare wire on the exhaust header and still nothing......once in a while though when I push the starter button but as I let off the button it might spark once. Now it did begin sparking normally just once and I plugged everything back in and it ran normally again until I turned the engine off. Next time I tried starting it we were back to no spark or the one spark deal.
I have tested the stator wires at 140 ohm, the pick up at 130 ohm (I can't seem to find a reliable number for these values online), I bought a new ignition coil and ignition switch on chance those may have been the problem but were not, not sure where to look from here......... does the starter relay switch have anything to do with the ignition on these? I know these older Bayou's are magneto type ignitions and do not need battery power to operate but I wonder if there are safety switches involved I may not be aware of. Also, can someone point me to a good wiring schematic for the magneto 220's? Pre 95 I believe.
thanks for any help!

Hey I just recently bought a 2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 when you shift it jumps a lot and while it’s riding it it’s jumping as well but won’t stay started when you let off the gas Could somebody tell me what could possibly be the problem? Thank you

So, I've been having issues with my Bayou 220. It's gotten to the point where it was parked for 4 years just because of the issues.
Issue 1, Grabby clutch: The clutch is adjusted incorrectly and grabs when shifting from neutral to 1st. It grabs before the engine has a chance to rev, which stalls it.
Issue 2, Starter clutch blown out: The starter clutch is busted and spins free both directions.
Issue 3, bad shocks: The springs or shocks are bad and the quad leans hard when getting on.
I have a couple other topics on this Bayou but this one is the reverse lever seal is leaking.
Talked to the dealer and have no listing on the seal. Looks fairly simple but is the seal installed from
the outside of crankcase or from the inside before I remove it.
Next question where can I get the new part? I found these on ebay but not sure if they fit.
any ideas where to buy it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-KLF220-88-02-Bayou-KLF250-03-10-Winderosa-822138-Engine-Oil-Seal-Kit/352356942519?fits=Year%3A1995|Model%3ABayou+220|Make%3AKawasaki&epid=209928936&hash=item520a1c42b7:g:ZKUAAOSwx6pYooaN:sc:USPSFirstClass!78006!US!-1

New arctic cat owner, I've read alot on the gauge issues, but let me say I have power, good ground, the aux also has power, the memory has correct voltage but no output of any kind. Only the LCD color works. I have also fully removed EVERYTHING and cleaned it all... what I still possibly have a cut wire knowing that I have good power to the back of the plug and good ground to the back of the plug but no outputs of any kind?
