On page 38 of the owners manual ...says to pull the latch at the rear left of the seat.

Some of them had a loop right under the rear bar. It’s a vinyl coated wire.  Pull it and she comes off.

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! 😬

      I have a 1987-89 (not sure on the year) Kawasaki bayou 300 that has electrical issues, I have replaced the entire harness with a proven good/used one, new CDI box, and two brand new coils, problem is that it tests no charge at the pickup coil, so I replaced and tested again with a so called good one that had been salvaged out of a blown up 220/250 (not sure which, the left side cover is smaller than my 300) in Missouri. It has a proven good OEM stator. I am trying to avoid buying a new start and pickup coil because it is so expensive so if anyone has a suggestion please let me know.

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Hello all, wanted to sign up for this site as I am sure I will have lots of questions soon. One of my coworkers has given me a free Bayou 220 that does not run, I was told it needs a new wiring harness, however I cannot confirm any of that yet.

      Next weekend I am going to drive up to the place and pick it up and get some hands on but right now trying to find some service manuals so that I can trace and find out what is going on. My plan is if I can get it to run to do a full restoration and use it to putt around the trails around my house.

      I have some experience with small engines, currently have six mini bikes and a buggy with a GY6 motor that I brought back to life and I am hoping I can do that same with this. Really hoping the Bayou has good compression and it's only a electrical problem.

      In the mean time I am going to be reading this forum to learn as much as I can and hopefully find a service manual. I have attached the only pic I have of it so far.

      Thanks!
      Daniel
