1990 kawasaki bayou KLF220-A3 parts diagrams

Recommended Posts

i got a 90 bayou 220 and it was locked turning forward but free turning backwards. i turned it back and its been free. i been cranking it with electric start and it fired for a few seconds before it locked up again, and still turns backwards easy. i just pulled the motor out and getting ready to open it up. if its not worth fixing then im gonna cut it up and use parts on a golf cart

well i actually bought it for salvage, to use parts off it for a golf cart, but if its no big deal, ill just fix it and keep it for my nephew, otherwise it becomes a golf cart. lol


when it fired this morning it didnt clank, clunk, or knock. it sounded good to me til it stopped abruptly. back up the crank and itll go again a few seconds before locking up again

Ok so you need 10 posts first to be able to download a  manual. You should be there soon and be able to do so.  It’s worth the it. This site is invaluable when it comes to help and information.  

I have a newer 220 that I’m currently tearing into so I can be of some help. But there are others on this forum that will chime in and add some info.

they ran it out of oil and the connecting rod bearing has seized the rod to the crank. i gotta  separate the crank halves to see how bad it is. im googling  now to see if i can get those parts and what its gonna cost. other than that, this motor is clean inside and in great condition. id like to fix it and put the bike back together, otherwise it becomes a donor in a homemade monster golf cart of a sort. lol

What a mess, but it looks like I only need to replace the connecting rod bearing ($29) and gasket set ($30). The hard part is gonna be putting that crank back together and getting it perfectly straight. Ill have less than $200 into this bike if this all goes well. So, i guess im not gonna be cutting it up for golf cart parts after all.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.

      I'm assuming, it's alright to test the engine after adjusting valves without the rear axle installed? Can someone please verify this? I'm waiting on axle parts and wanting to get that done while waiting. Thanks! 🙂

      So here where I live in Newfoundland Canada, they let you drive your bike on the road provided it’s registered and insured same goes for crossing highways but on trails you don’t need to be insured. And I don’t even think you need a full license to insure your bike they said it was up to the insurance company. I’m trying to get my old 1985 Suzuki 250 registered they have to do a search for it to make sure it hasn’t been in anyone else’s name first. Hopefully it comes back clean I am pretty excited

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?
      Also , I have a mystery bolt That I cannot remember where it goes. M6x 70 or so.  Hex head with a flat washer.I will try to attach a pic.
      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
