Bayou 220

Recommended Posts

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?

Welcome to Quadcrazy. Yes there is def a manual available. You have to be proactive in 10+ posts before you are able to download a manual which will be simple. Seems like a lot of bayous posted these days esp the 220 and 300’s. I’ve jist wrapped up a project 220 and a few other members on this forum are working on a few 300’s so any questions I’m sure you will get answers to here.  So what’s the deal was it a barn find ? Sitting around ? Did the old owner give you any background on the bike? Any pics ?

@Alan Callison @GlenI 

Yes it can be expensive but worth it also.   As far as the non starting it could be the main fuse next to the starter relay, a bad safety like a neutral safety switch, or something locking it out like a bad ignition or kill switch. Download the manual and post the wire diagram and I will help you out where I can tracing the source.  

As far as The bayou 220 goes @GlenI its going to be fun to do.  Get  familiar with the manual as soon as you are able to download and again you will find everything you need here info/helpwise.   It’s only a machine and there is always an answer. Bad or good but there is an answer.

Welcome to the community. I just got done getting a bayou 220 back to life and am getting into a300 bayou 4x4. They run great once you get that ignition figured out.

One thing I forgot to say is whenever I have things apart I’m a huge fan of taking care of something else that’s in the area.  For instance I did my 400 bayou cams over.  While the head was off I did the valve seals! The seals came with the head gasket. Never tackled them before but said how hard could it be ? Better yet how hard would it be to swallow the pill 💊 after putting that head back together to just find out it’s blowing smoke from a bad seal! So before you slap it back together take a good look around and see what else is in that area of work that you could take care of during the initial repair.  Just sayin.

      For those that have been pulling hair out-
      It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer

      If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES

      and your display:

      - Is Blank

      - does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the
      backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank

      -your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles

      -your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles)

      What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for
      a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc...

      I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now.

      I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES
      I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that

      I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc....

      If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts
      Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping
      I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display
      If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay
      If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers
      I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in...................
      Message me if interested
       
      I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun
      It will appear burned or melted.
      The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround
      Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts
      PM me if interested

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.
