Make sure your cdi is the correct one, they come in AC or DC you have to know what your stator is of either one...

No I don't know if AC/DC.I Bought from amazon in which said for a Lakota  kef300. I bought new carb,tires,light kit,brakes,tail light, seat etc. I have fenders and racks off. Starting to go through with a meter to see if anything measures funny. I said screw it and already order, stator,pick up and gasket. I have to much into it now to give up. Plus I like the little bastard..This pick was a little over a week ago. All was working, till it sat for a week..😳

Hahaha little bastard!! I love it. If I had to sum up the way I feel about all of my bikes past and present I would put that way.  I love the bikes i get and feel the same way! Anyway I would guess it’s the stator. It’s an easy test with an ohm meter.  But a new one cant hurt! Keep us posted I’m curious how it goes.

Try downloading "Manuals library"from the app store, that's how I got my Kazuma Falcon 150cc repair manual....

you should be able to see what we have in the download section and be able to down load after 10 posts which you should be close to or should have so far.  

If you need help with the wiring diagram let me know.

I will pay for a good diagram. Nothing is free in this world. There isn't much to these damn things. I'm just not a wiring guy. I will fix anything.

Ok hold on one sec. Here at Quadcrazy believe it or not the manuals are free! 

Secondly I said I’m willing to help you sort out the electrical diagram because I am a wiring kinda guy! 

And lastly anything that I can’t help you with there are plenty more memebers her to jump in and help with a solution.  

Take a look at some of the forum posts and you will see some of the most complicated problems to some of the simplest are solved here!

I have been reading for the last couple hours..I will wait till next Wednesday to receive new stator,pickup,rectifier and gaskets. I just don't understand how one day it is running like a raped ape. And the next it just rolls over with not one spark. 

Like my ole man always said. 

"If it wasn't for bad luck, I would have and luck at all.." 🤣💩

It happens.  People jump start their bikes with a car or a jumper pack and don’t realize they can blow up a stator coil.  All sorts of resons.  Welding on a bike can do the same. I’m at the point where I can’t wait for a bike to give me the best problem it has to offer. Bc the bottom line it’s that it’s a machine and it has a diagram and if you can understand the diagram you own that bastard. So let’s get after it and fix that thing and make it run.

      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

      While riding my Quadzilla XLC 500 I was cruising along about 60 mph then opened it up, but once I hit 70-75 mph it died on me so I rolled to a stop and it wouldn't start for about 20-30 seconds. I then noticed the Temp light occasionally flashes on but its so quick you wouldn't notice in the day so not sure how long its been happening. The engine has started pinging when I accelerate which can be caused by many things so I drained the fuel and replaced with hi octane, fitted a new spark plug, adjusted the little washer on the high jet in the carb twice to make it run more lean which made no difference.  I tested the thermostat which opens at the correct temperature, I removed the radiator cap and started the engine and no bubbles were showing and the oil is on maximum and very clean as I have not long serviced it.
      The last time I took it out I went 14 miles and the coolant in the bottle has dropped about 1/2".
      I am now leaning towards a head gasket and have purchased a full gasket kit but was wondering if there's anything else it could be before taking the engine apart.

      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

       
       
      I can not find them on www.kawasakipartshouse.com

      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.
