Neutral safety switch

Recommended Posts

I've been out of commission with health issues, but I was able to take the motor out of my 220 and broke most of it down. They ran it out of oil and the bearing in the connecting rod to crank siezed. I gotta see if I can find new parts. Not sure the extent of the damage yet though. I haven't got the crank out yet. I was also surprised how good condition everything is except for the siezed bearing. I'm hoping I can afford to fix it but if not I'm gonna convert it to a side by side home-made golf cart and find another shaft drive water-cooled 500cc or so. That's a really sweet looking 220 you got Frank. Your kid is gonna love it!

Thanks @Rick Shropshire It’s a good bike I picked up sitting in a shed.  It’s in excellent condition aside from the dirt and a little rust. The last owner put it away due to his age and the bike would not start any longer.   Hence the neutral safety switch replacement.  I jumped the switch out and the engine runs excellent 

Honestly I’m 50/50 on keeping it.   I guess I will have to see how it turns out and make a decision.  But I’m prob leaning in the direction of a 4x4 for him. So I will run it after it’s done for a bit and prob put it up for sale along with a Mojave that I picked up and will be posting soon. Combined sale should leave me more then enough to buy a nice 4x4 for him.   

Hope your feeling better.

im trying to not get hospitalized, i got my  new/used multi-process welder fixed up and all put together, got steel, and I want to start doing the mods on the honda shadow so I can get that  atv axle mounted.  That bike is one heavy beast to move around without wheels on it. hahaha.  aand I need the space to put the lift and bigger wheels on my g1 golf cart and the beast honda shadow is in the way! I like those "dont run, been sitting in the shed" deals. Thats how I got my G1 golf cart. A clip popped off one of the linkages and the linkage popped loose from the carb. I fixed that and had to find roller wheels. It runs great, just looks rough at the moment. Itll look tough when I get done with it. Pics for sure when I can.

So the new part has  arrived! $13.00 bucks and it’s oem so that’s good.   Take a look at the pics and you can see the projection of the metal tab that’s spring loaded coming out of the reverse cam.  That should surely reach the electronic pick ups on the neutral safety and reverse switch.  I’m off to go get some beer and head to the garage! Pics and the end result coming soon! Maybe have it done by the weekend.  Only a few hours each day to get this done.

That looks to be the culprit. Good luck brother.

Update ! Parts installed and all back together.   Reused the old neutral safety switch since it was never bad in the first place. Bike runs great.  Going to post a few more pics tomorrow of it all back together.

It’s all done. Final touches put on today. Runs great. The last owner of this bike kept it in amazing shape.  All the lights work and had added rubber boots over the plug and bulb assembly’s def not factory. Haven’t seen that before.  Everything was kept in tact and not beat up.  But anyway it’s all wrapped up.  Thanks @wanrep for the help with the pointers and pics for this bike.  It’s always easier when you see pics form someone else’s project.

My first quad I bought was a Mojave. Black. It was fun for what it was. Also the first quad I was thrown from. Trees don't move. I tried. Lol

I really have no reason for this bike.  The price was right, it’s a fun bike for my oldest to play with and the bike is in great condition.   Going to roll it out of the garage and see what’s what.   I really am starting to think I need a bike lift.

      Just picked this up.  Excited to start working on it.  Has push start and a few other things not sure about. Disconnected gas lines etc.  Is there a repair manual available?
    • By JacobSlabach
      Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already.  When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there).  it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start.  I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things.  I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap.  
      Enough background on it, the problem is this:  It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly.  It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold...  It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold-  does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal.  A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression.  I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis..  I have never adjusted valves before-  the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this.  My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top-  should i tear down and rebuild the top end?  What should i try first?  I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed.  I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon.

      Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit-  Id rather not sink too much more into this machine..  lol

      this bike! did this guy sucker me or what.. ok, looks like this means something is bent that I do not see or one rod is longer vs the other?
      how long do you think this would last before it ripped into the tire? this is the right side, left side tire clears no problem

      So here’s a question. I have seen a few members that have recently purchased a used bike.   Also a HUGE amount of so called new members who have purchased a used bike and have come here “just here for a manual”.
      Some have been disappointed with the bikes and or knew they were getting a broken bike with some mechanical  experience thinking hey I can fix it.   So here’s my take on buying a used bike. Anyone who has followed some of mine and other members posts about what to look for when buying a used bike here’s a few pointers on what to look for. 
      1. I always check the oil and look for moisture, metal shavings and color. 
      2. Feel the compression or take a compression tester with you. 
      3. Check for spark (if the bikes not running)
      4. Take a small jumper pack to verify that the starter cycle works and the bike cranks.
      5. Look for bent or cracked frame/welding that was done on the frame from maybe a wreck.
      5. Mismatch plastics by looking under neath.  
      7. Bolts on the engine/frame that look like they are stripped from someone taking the bike apart. 
      8. Any kind of scilicone or gasket adhesive that was used on a cover plate or engine seem where the engine was taken apart.  
      9. Patches on the exhaust pipes with sheet metal or jb weld patch material.  
      10. Wiring messes on the harness like bundles of tape where the harness was opened up and taped up  for an after market device or just plain butchered up.  
      11. Put the bike in gear (running or not) and roll the bike back and forth to see that the gears work and you feel resistance like the engine is trying to spin while pushing it forward as if you were push starting it   
      12. I keep a vin# decoder website on my phone as a favorite to double check the year of the bike .
      All though nothing is fool proof these tips will help you along while buying a used bike. Not only that but  it will help you negotiate a fair price for a bike that may have one of the above problems.  
      I have minimized this entire process down to about 15 mins. I buy all the time so I don’t expect you to do the same or have a compression tester etc but use some of these tips when buying and go into the purchase with confidence! 
      I would like to hear anyone else that has any input on buying a bike and what to  look for!

      Hi everyone,  I'm about to get my first ATV, 02 bayou 220.
      Neighbor said I could have it if I fix it, Carburetor problems, and needs a new ignition switch. last ran 2 years ago, said he changed the oil in it twice a year and never ride it hard.
      Hope I got me a good ride.
