If you know how to combine the posts that would be great. Not sure what parts to get now  until I tear the left side down ,just got the right side gasket, should have got the set

ready to put right side back together so I can try it out. I will work on the neutral switch later..I want to make sure every thing else is ok .I just bought it and don't know its history

PM me the urls of the topics you would like to combine and I can do that for you.

If every thing checks out ok i'll probably order parts and do the switch next week. I have tried to download the manual 1986 - 2006 Kawasaki KLF 300 Bayou Service Manual several times and it comes back corrupt. Is there a trick to download it.

The manual was an external source. I've downloaded it and checked it out. I compressed it and re-uploaded it, so it should work.

Well I got it back together today. neutral switch was bypassed, ok  reverse lockout didn't work, ok  Found gears ok, except couldn't find 4th. and 5th. gear  Could the reverse lockout be blocking those gears. run fine, shifted fine. happy for right now with 3 gears and reverse.. think it will work out in the end. any thoughts on the gears?

I would not be happy for too long.  Somethings going on obviously. A spring is not is installed on the gears maybe or a gear reinstalled backwards etc.  Something was missed.  That reverse lock out can can be looked at while the cover is off do functionality.   Review the work you’ve done and go back and look if you can.   You will find it.

trying to think I replaced the shifter shaft didn't take the other side apart. Don't look like it has been worked on, wish I knew it's history. i'll tear it down to see if  can see anything.  I'm guessing someone had trouble shifting and kept kicking it till they broke the shifter. thanks  i'll  let you know what I find

Oh ok so you don’t know what happened prior to the shaft being broken. I didn’t realize that.   Yep well it was most likely broken due to something breaking inside and someone prob beating on the shifter. 

Is is a 4x4? 

Honestly I would think about it and make a decision  if the bike is worth pulling the engine off and  tearing into it.  If the bike is clean and in good shape and if your able to do the work yourself or have someone help you?  If so then go for it!

It may be something simple inside the engine partswise and more of a labor intensive thing like having to pull the motor. And keep in mind  the neutral safety switch replacent requires you to pull the engine mounting bolts out and shift the engine over to get the cover off anyway. Unless you pull the shifter shaft out again because the shifter shaft does not allow the cover on the shifter side  to come off without moving the engine over.

I'll check the left side to see if something there is blocking it and recheck the right side to see if I got it back right. I don't want to tear into the trams.  maybe up for sale every thing else seems good.  Later

and if something wasnt put back right, I would check it out before riding as you might cause more damage if something is flying around in there lol

      Hello everyone! I recently purchased this quad for a mere 300.00 and it is pretty clean for the year. I bought it from a guy who bought it in a storage unit. He didn’t know anything about it. I got it home and noticed it did not have an ignition coil for the spark plug. I bought the ignition coil, a new battery, new CDI box, new starter relay, new safety neutral relay, new carb and so on... I got it to turn over, but when I pull the plug and check for spark I have nothing.. it has a non factory starter button that works when I push it and turns the engine over no matter if the key or stop switch is on or off..not sure what that’s all about, but it does turn over..just no spark at the plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks
