Bayou 220 no power at ign. switch or coil, lights etc

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a used 220 They said needs carb work, ran fine when parked (4 years ago)

After looking at it. I have no power at ign. switch or coil, lights etc. Have power at starter relay which I can jump and it cranks

but of course no spark. Is there a fuse I am missing? Found one under steering wheel, 2 wires connected to it which aren't there anymore. 

Battery fully charged just no power anywhere that I can see. Need ideas where to start.

Look under the seat where the battery is. You will find a round relay. NOT the starter relay. Another one with four wires going to it.  One brown one green and two black.  Take a piece of wire and jump the green wire to ground and turn the ignition on and see if you have dash lights and able to crank the bike.   Make sure the bike is in neutral !

There is a fuse right next to the starter relay.  Def a good place to look first.

Ok, No fuse found anywhere. Power to starter relay, nothing coming out of any of the wires except the 2 you can jump. Is

this also a fuse combo relay? 

Next I ran a fused jumper wire from Pos/Batt. to Single white wire not connected to anything by battery and get power

back to combo starter/relay. Got power at key switch still no power at Pos. Ign. coil or Neg coil Does the relay/fuse have to be 

good to get power at coil? 

Next Still jumpered I disconnected kill switch still no power at coil. 

Last question The white wire on pic 3 is what I jumpered 12v to.

that one and the one next to it are not plugged to anything. Are they supposed to be plugged in or are they both

test connectors?

Ok Update. I was taking the starter relay off and found the 30 amp fuse under the cover when you unplug it. 

It was blown. I replaced it and no crank. Grounded the green wire on the other relay which you said to try still 

no crank. I unplugged the kill switch and jumped the starter relay and it started for a second. I was only using 

starting fluid. Now I know it will run. Why wont it crank at the switch? Starter relay bad? its in neutral. Also any

ideas on the other wires not plugged in I showed in pic 3 white wire and black/yellow and the 2 unconnected wires

under the steering wheel?  Thanks in advance Az

The round aluminum type relay is the starter circuit relay. It’s a lock out relay that allows the starter circuit to close. It’s connected to the neutral safety switch.   Ok try this.  Put everything back the way it needs to be and jump the two black wires on that starter relay.   It has a green brown and two blacks.  Jump the two blacks and try and hit the start button.

Any luck ?

What is that on the dash? Is that a home made ignition?  The bayou should have the ignition on the right side plastic in front if the gas tank? If that’s home made then you have to look back at the wiring diagram to see what was eliminated and how it’s wired.

That picture is your start circuit relay inside that black rubber boot.   The wires going onto it are as follows. The green wire comes from your neutral/reverse safety switch.  When the bike is in neutral that wires gets grounded by a device inside the left engine cover by the shifter.  The brown wire comes from your 12v positive and should show 12v+ with the ignition on.   The two black wires are what completes the ignition circuit allowing the dash lights to come on as well as allow the ignition button to run the starter.  

So if your handy with a tester make sure the brown wire has 12+. Make sure the green wire has continuity from green to ground when the bike is in neutral. 

If you don’t have 12+ on the brown wire try a jumper from battery to that brown. 

Also the green wire should be providing the ground for the relay. Hence the continuity test.

lastly you should hear or feel a click from that relay, what that does is makes contact for the two black wires going into that relay.  If you have all the above power and no click then the relay is bad. You can jump the two black wires and see if the dash and start button works.

Ign switch is ok, just removed it out of the cowling to access wiring better. 

Jumped the 2 blacks like you said still no crank. Thanks for the info on starter circuit

I am kinda handy with meters was in auto repair for 23 yrs but 1st atv and kinda rusty at it. 

Have to wait till next day off to mess with it. Any info on the wires that are disconnected?

Thanks. Az

Those two wires look like they were wired for an auxiliary of some sort.   What is that item on the dash? Is it a cigarette lighter ? If so then there should be a positive and negative on it.   

Unless I’m not sure what wires your talking about.

Having same problem on a kef300a. Only sparks twice. Once as soon as you touch start and once when you let go. Turns over as long as you hold button. And I don't have the 4wire relay only have 2 wire starter solenoid/relay?

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Jay C. There should be a second relay in a black rubber boot someplace on the bike. I will look at your diagram to verify.  It may be a completely different problem. In the mean time you should start a new topic about your bike and include the make and year of your bike and the problem so it can be tracked better. A lot of  new members I’m noticing have been  adding there bike/problem into existing topics and they get lost.

No cigarette lighter just a hole with a cover on it. Under  it has 2 wires. 1 is fused and both are cut and disconnected. 

What about the white wire and black wire with yellow stripe by the starter relay in pic 3.  are they supposed to be connected anywhere or are they test leads? 

After checking what you said I will start a new topic on it. I found out yesterday it is a 1995 model Bayou 220 Thanks

Those two wires don’t  go anywhere. On my bike they were neatly tied up onto the harness. I’m assuming an auxiliary connection.  If you look at the black with yellow stripe you will see there is one of the same going to the ground terminal on the battery.  The white when I tested it gets 12v when the key is on.

      (I don't have manual and there isn't one on the internet)
      It's a 150cc ATV, automatic transmission, automatic starter, with zero electric devices.
      I have to mount at least some front/rear lights. But for how many watts should I aim in total on entire ATV? You know, for example there are 10/50/200 Watt lights. But it's impossible to order some, when I don't know if I should keep entire ATV under 100 Watts? Under 500 Watts? Under 1000 Watts?

      Hi all, I bought a 2018 used 450 for my wife. She is having trouble with some of the real rocky trails close to our home. Her arms give out in an hour or two so I was thinking of adding power steering . Is this possible ? Anyone done this ?

      Hey Guys, 
      I picked up my first ever ATV on friday. It's an 89 Big Bear. It has some cosmetic issues, but seems pretty decent mechanically. I did have trouble getting the idle tuned to the book spec of 1,300 - 1,500 RPM. I took the carb apart and cleaned it out. Somebody must have lost the spring for the pilot screw, as it's no longer in the carb. Also, I have a dual cable carb, I noticed all the IPL's show the single cable carb, but I see others on youtube had dual cable carbs. When I would adjust my idle speed screw, nothing would happen. I bottomed it out and it didn't seem to make much if any difference. When i pulled the carb apart I saw the screw doesn't even touch the linkage, it's too short. Do the two different versions have different length carb screws? I'm wondering if somebody lost the ordinal, replaced it with the IPL number for a single cable carb which is shorter, and gave up on getting the ATV to idle. If you hold the throttle just a bit to get it to the RPM range listed above, it "idles" great. Any ideas? Or any links to the dual cable IPL?
      Have you guys have good luck with the aftermarket intake boots? Or is this a buy once, cry once deal? I'm guessing the OEM units last longer, but there is a huge price difference. If you have had good luck with aftermarket, where did you get it? My current boot doesn't seem to have any air leaks, but it's encased in JB weld... 
      I'm getting a 9th digit check sum error on the ATV when I put the VIN in. Has anybody seen this before on a Yamaha? The VIN  number looks original as well as the paint around it. 
       
      Thanks,

      Now I need some settings and maybe the "what not to do for Gods sake" before I start dis-assembling. Anything guys. I see there is an idle adjust cable Is there any other settings on this carb? My drain screw appears well used

    • By bcsman
      So need some recommended maintenance I should do with my 1998 Foreman 450ES.  I didn't get much info as to what had been done so what's the things I should perform to start me from square one?  I'm not a mechanical genius but can do the basics.  I did adjust the toe today so I'm not a nooby.

      A friend of mine has this Bayou 220 that started running bad and parked it a few years ago. I foolishly volunteered to take a look at it. I noticed right away the choke plunger on the carb was broken and probably the reason it was running bad but now the old gas was evaporated and like turpentine. Before i even tried to start it, i drained/ thoroughly washed the tank out, new fuel filter, new fuel lines. Blew air through the petcock etc. Changed the oil and filter and air filter and new choke plunger and cable. I disassembled the carb and rebuilt it with a kit. I cleaned the main jet with solvent and poked a wire through it to make sure it is clean.. the engine now fires right up with the choke on and dies when i take the choke off. I adjusted the air/fuel screw to about 1.5 turns out and the idle screw about 2.5 turns out. The rubber boot between the carb and head does not have any cracks in it so I don't think it is leaking air. I originally had the clip on the needle on the second from the top ring... when i moved it all the way to the bottom it starts, runs and idles really fast and will idle eeally high with the choke off but if i adjust the throttle cable and/or idle screw to a slower idle it will sometimes stall but the idle will go up and down every few seconds and when you give it gas there is a hesitation... i tried moving the clip down to rhe second from bottom and same problem... i replaced all the parts in the pic to the top right. However, there appears to be a small o ring, washer and spring left over from the kit... i did not see these get removed..... a) any idea if where these extra parts go and if i need them and b) any other ideas on why i cant get it to idle right or carb adjustment ideas?
      Thanks

      So, I've been having issues with my Bayou 220. It's gotten to the point where it was parked for 4 years just because of the issues.
      Issue 1, Grabby clutch: The clutch is adjusted incorrectly and grabs when shifting from neutral to 1st. It grabs before the engine has a chance to rev, which stalls it.
      Issue 2, Starter clutch blown out: The starter clutch is busted and spins free both directions.
      Issue 3, bad shocks: The springs or shocks are bad and the quad leans hard when getting on.

      Hi all,
      I recently acquired an old Bayou from a neighbor that I cleaned up a got running, then from nowhere a problem crops up where it refuses to start........ I pull the plug and it has no spark, pulled the plug cap off and laid the bare wire on the exhaust header and still nothing......once in a while though when I push the starter button but as I let off the button it might spark once. Now it did begin sparking normally just once and I plugged everything back in and it ran normally again until I turned the engine off. Next time I tried starting it we were back to no spark or the one spark deal.
      I have tested the stator wires at 140 ohm, the pick up at 130 ohm (I can't seem to find a reliable number for these values online), I bought a new ignition coil and ignition switch on chance those may have been the problem but were not, not sure where to look from here......... does the starter relay switch have anything to do with the ignition on these? I know these older Bayou's are magneto type ignitions and do not need battery power to operate but I wonder if there are safety switches involved I may not be aware of. Also, can someone point me to a good wiring schematic for the magneto 220's? Pre 95 I believe.
      thanks for any help!

      Hey I just recently bought a 2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 when you shift it jumps a lot and while it’s riding it it’s jumping as well but won’t stay started when you let off the gas Could somebody tell me what could possibly be the problem? Thank you
