Bayou 220 running issue

Recommended Posts

got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

Is the carb that beat up that it’s byond repair? A valve adjustment would prob help for other reasons but not this problem.   The timing is pretty straight forward as your 300 is. Cam sprocket and T mark on the flywheel.   Double check that the choke is not stuck.   And also check for good spark and a fresh plug. 

Also my 220 ran best on a 1-1/2 turns out on the air fuel mixture screw.

heh forgot to conclude this thread too.  The carb was beat up so I couldn't do much with it- the bowl was warped or something and had all kinds of crap that the carb cleaner wouldnt touch inside..  ordered a new one for $30- adjusted (remember aftermarket carbs usually like leaner settings than eom.  runs great now.

The new rebuild kit comes  with a float.  Some good air pressure will clean anything out along with a set of brushes you can get on amazon.  I hear ya on the new cheap carb but they are just too much trouble with the adjusting.

thanks.  I had already replaced it and got the bike back to the guy- he says it runs perfectly now.

just wondering tho:  How much would you charge for a tune up and what do you include with your tune up?  I charged this guy $120 and changed the oil, sp, carb, checked timing and valve clearance, cleaned up the guts of his bike good, and realigned his front end.  Is that fair or too much or too little?  What would you charge and what would you include in a tune up?

      Have a 2001 polaris sportsman 500 4x4 atv and when I put coolant in the radiator it starts leaking from the exhaust. The valves are sealed but it stopped making compression. Do I need to just replace the head? I just rebuilt the hole top end and this is the only thing +valves that I have not replaced and was wondering if that is why it's not starting up. Need answers please.

      Ran it out of gas last month... Works fine for 3 or so days then refuses to start.... Changed out the sparkplug and it will run for 15 or so seconds before shutting off.... Cleaned out the fuel system and injector and it misses when idling as well as shutting off at idle every so often... It is giving me no other issues and sounds and runs fine while riding... Only issue is cutting off at idle.....
      Ideas anyone??

      So I’ve got a 400ex with a dg slip on and it’s super loud (louder than you would think for a slip on) and it’s annoys my neighbors and just everyone in general. So I would like to know who makes the quietest exhaust for it. I have the stock muffler but I’d rather sell it than put that back on. thanks!

      So I’ve got a 2000 Honda 400ex absolutely love it!! I’ve had it for about a month, I ride with bruteforce 750’s, outlander 850’s and 1000 sxs’s and I was thinking of getting a trx450r carb and a full hmf exhaust. And probably doing the air box mod too, how much power would this give my 400? Just a little different or a big difference? Cuz if it’s not much of a different I’ll just stick with my dg slip on..... thanks!
