'97 Bayou 300 4x4 KLF-300C, but not really brand or model specific.  I'm having trouble re-installing the Big Coil Spring in the recoil (pull rope) starter. I'm hoping someone knows an easy tip or trick.

Thanks for all the help this forum has given me already!

Success! Gloves, safety glasses & patience are a must!

Small, straight jaw vice grips solved my problem. I clamped hook at the start and half way around, clamped it again. Cumbersome, but the spring stayed in position as I coiled it around. Each wrap, holding the spring down tight, remove, adjust & re-clamp the vice grips. After a few wraps, the 2nd vice grip was not needed, which made it easier. Eventually, the remaining coil is small enough that it doesn't fight back & can be put into place. Grease it all & reassembly from there is straightforward & easy. 

Hopefully, this will help someone else.

Have you checked on YouTube? I seen a few videos on that item when I just looked.  Ashe a long shot but there are a few with other bikes. Maybe that might get you going in the right direction.

Thanks, I appreciate your comment. I never think about searching YouTube but my son regularly reminds me "Dad, YouTube is your friend".  LOL

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      Just got a 2001 300 2x4 Bayou that needs a shifter shaft. Is this a very hard replacement to do? What do I need to watch for? Is there a video on this repair?
