Thanks Frank.  This was at my brother's cabin and wasn't working, so he told my husband if he could fix it he could have it.  So we brought it home, but the key could not be located so he will be having to replace the ignition switch.  He has taken out the carburetor and can see that needs to be replaced - he's "never seen a carburetor so junked up".  So if you had any tips on those or could post those sections of the manual that would be great - won't let me download it yet.

I’m sure a good soaking and some work I bet that carb can be saved.  When they are that bad I don’t even try to take them apart without a one day soak.  Here is a pic of of a soaking process.  It comes with the basket inside etc. let it soak for a day and then try to take the carb apart. Put parts back in the basket and soak again.  After that some compressed air small piece of wire to clean the jets and it should be fine.

I had a bayou 220 that I was working on that had a junked, and leaking carb- replaced with an aftermarket for $20 off amazon- works great, but aftermarket carbs are hit/miss.

btw, does anyone know if the plunger carbs on atvs have compatible butterfly carbs that can replace them?  Every atv that I've worked on so far with a plunger carb has/had a idling issue where it wont idle cold, but idle speed increases with engine temp and races when warm....?  Anyone know why?

(by plunger carbs, I mean the carbs where the throttle cable hooks up to a 'plunger' that slides up and down to adjust flow into the engine vs the butterfly carbs where the throttle cable attaches to a butterfly gate that opens flow into engine...)

As much as I’ve taken apart and put back together I’ve never really had to rip into any clutches like the springs etc.  I’m sure I could but I’m not hoping to have to any time soon! 😬

      Hey I have a Kawasaki buyou I put a new carburetor on it and a brand new spark plug coil and still firing up could you know what my problem is anyone please

      I have a 2004  Kawasaki KLF300. I’m not sure What is the black/yellow, brown, and red wire wrapped together in the wire hornets of a klf300. I got it used and notice some wires not connected. They are located in the front area 

      The reason why I am asking because I’m having issues with it firing up. I cleaned the carb put new spark plugs and gas.

      Kawasaki Prairie 700 is the machine. It’s starts and runs but has a miss. After running it til it’s warm, it’s start smoking like your spraying for mosquitoes. Has oil in the breather also. Checked compressions and getting low 40psi both holes. I know this has a decompression lobe. Any other ideas? Leak down check? I’m guessing it pretty much has to be rings. With it blowing oil back into the breather. Normal typical sign I suppose?

      Just was given a 220 bayou, turns over and was wired by a crazy mouse on drugs helped by a committee of politicians taking advice from lil green folk from Mars! This is going to be fun. Claimed the stator was bad. My other project is an old lakota, died driving with no spark and has sat for a bit due to building a house n life! In other words,I may need lots of advice!

      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!

      Hi Everyone - Need some help.
      Got a nice little 220...clean machine. wiring is a mess. I have a diagram however, the one I have has 4 wires coming from the ignition switch not 2 like mine. So, I cant trace wires properly.
      There is a white one that runs to the Solenoid, and a brown wire...from the Ignition...I dont know where its supposed to go. Also, on the Solenoid, there are 3 wires..W to ignition, B to start relay and B/Y runs up to the front of the machine...and is not plugged into anything...and there isnt a "Mate" missing it. How do they plug into the 4 open shovels by the 20A fuse?
      I'm pretty sure my Lights and start switch/Lights are correct.
      Problem I cant get anything...new battery...cant get the start button to work, cant get any power to the lights or switches...so I know something is not grounded or..
      Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
      Tom
