Mods for a 220 Bayou?

Recommended Posts

So I've owned my first ever ATV for roughly 48 hours and I'm already testing the limits of my Google-Fu on mods and accessories for it. I have a '00 Kawasaki Bayou 220 that I'm getting running and plan on using it for camping and hunting trips in northern Idaho. Other than the obvious: winch and a gun rack (actually won one a couple years ago and still have it!), is there any suggestions or recommendations anyone can give?

One thing I'm considering is the Rotopax 2gal fuel can and the 2 gal first aid/survival can just cause I like being prepared, though I'm not sure it'd be necessary as I carry everything I need, minus fuel, in a day-pack whenever I'm in the woods. Any thoughts on the Rotopax? or other small fuel cans?

I would get a rear storage bag and load it up! I would equip the bike with a 12v accessory plug for a cigarette lighter type plug for a tire compressor and a USB port to charge the phone, a tire plug kit, and a jumper pack, spark plugs  and a small socket set. Electrical tester and flashlight, small shovel. 

Tow straps and a good rope. Always good to keep a snatch block as well and a few bottles of water.

Thanks for the recommendations. I like the idea of the 12v and usb outlets! Just got back from errands and had stopped by Harbinger Fright to pick up a few sale items for the bayou: 20' tow/recovery strap, tie down ratchets, digital air gauge, tire plug kit, and some engine degreaser. I may take the tire plug kit back as I just found out AutoZone has a kit that comes with CO2(?) cartridges for re-inflating for $20. Saves room and I have a large compressor in my garage. I have a heavy duty plastic tool box I was thinking of bolting to the back rack, but I use it to haul my chain saw and come-along (which will be with the bike until I get a winch. lol

All in all, a decent start to equipping it before I take it out on it's maiden voyage.

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      Hi Everyone,
      I am new to this forum and hope that someone out there can help me, I have an early Suzuki King Quad 300 (280cc) which starts intstantly every time but at about half revs or there abouts it starts spluttering and will not rev any higher, this fault is present whether choke is applied or not, some one suggested that silencer maybe be clogged so removed baffle but no improvement have removed carb and stripped 3 times but still no joy.
      Any ideas would be most welcome.
      Cheers Rob

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?
