2000 Kawasaki Prairie 300 4x4 Rear Seal Leak

Recommended Posts

Picked up a 2000 prairie 300 4x4. It is leaking out of the rear output seal where the driveshaft contacts to the engine. I'm havi g a really hard time finding out how to remove the driveshaft online, finding a service manual, and finding the seal on a parts diagram. Anyone know how to remove the driveshaft or know where a service manual is for it?

Thanks

Welcome to Quadcrazy @Wrye Pipeworks  

That rear drive should come off exactly like the bayous come off.  It’s pretty simple actually. Spray the bolts down that you will be removing before you start with some WD 40.   You have to have something under the bike so the rear wheels are off the ground.  Remove the rear wheels.   Then disconnect the brake line and the vent hoses at the rear drum.   There are four bolts that hold the drive shaft to the engine housing (bevel gear housing). Remove the four bolts. You need an open end wrench and a swivel socket with a long extension to get the four bolts off. I think they are 12mm.  

Then you unbolt the rear shocks and the entire rear and axle will slide out of the engine.  

The only thing that may be different on the prairie is a swing arm support that may need to be unbolted. 

There is a thin metal plate washer and an O-ring in place where the engine and axle separate.   My guess is the O-ring is bad and that’s why you have the leak.   

HAVE A DRAIN PAN UNDERNEATH!! Oil will come out of the engine. Even if you drain the bike there will be some more. 

You can pick up a gasket kit from Amazon. It’s worth getting the entire kit for $38 bucks. It comes with every possable gasket you will need down the road. 

Putting it back together goes the same way just add grease to the splines and around the new O-ring and send it back in. You may have to spin the rear axle a little to line the splines up when sending it back into the engine. When you tighten up the axle connection at the engine use a cris cross pattern when tightening the four 12mm bolts.  Top right, bottom left etc you get that right ? 

If you can post a few pics of the rear assembly: shocks connection points etc prior to starting and if anything stands out we will let you know. 

Good luck.

Got to the seal today. Yes you do need to remove the swingarm to access it. Unfortunately the kit didnt have the oil seal or the o ring but j found them.

Anyway, next question. My rear break drum is completely froze. I had to tap the levers back just so it wasnt engaged. I'll open it up tomorrow but any hints at what to look at first that could cause it to not move at all with the cables attached?

That sucks about the gasket kit.   I thought it had everything in it.   As far as the break drum goes it’s common for the moving parts to seize up after sitting.  Take the wheels off and the drum if you can.  Spray some penetration oil or WD 40 spray the parts down. Try not to get anything on the brake shoes.  Pick up some lithium grease or graphite grease.  Graphite grease does not collect dust and use it on the reassembly putting it on all the moving parts.  Just a bit though.   You don’t want globs of this all over in the brake drums.   Double check all the springs are good and not broken or on the verge of breaking.  If the pads are good sand them down a little bit with a 150 grit piece of sand paper just to rough them up a little bit.

the same thing happened on my bayou- rear end seized, I thought my diff went but it was the brakes seized up (it wasnt after sitting or anything- just started it up one day rode it around and parked it and then tried to roll it and it wouldnt budge.  I opened up the drums and the pads had come off the shoes and jammed.  I had to get new brake shoes.  I would open it up before you do anything else such as buying new brake shoes tho

      I have been working on these and trying to get the word out on the forums.
      I am now at the point to be able to start doing struts for others. If you haven't kept up with my progress, I have developed adding external reservoirs. It would be an approximate $(contact me for current pricing as some things have gotten cheaper and some have not) cost for both struts which includes adding bungs and all parts, including a lower magnetic drain plug. It would be a complete assembly ready to install with minor tweaking once on the atv (such as line routing) but nothing significant 
         
         
       .

      Send me an email if you have particular things you want done or suggestions based on problems you are encountering with the oem set up. I can help you decide which route to go.

      Here in the following pic of my manual, is a list of OEM part number struts I have developed this program for. Basically, it will encompass all SRA's with a front strut like the one in the picture, even the ones with a slightly diferrent lower spring perch.


      If you are interested in an affordable and better front suspension on your utility SRA, please email me at: [email protected] to ensure I get your correspondence, since my inbox on the forum periodically fills up.

      hi everyone. recently iam get a good vibration that comes and goes while iam riding my praire 4x4. iam afraid something is going to detonate. vibration is felt in the steering and then you will here a noise and this comes and goes. its very noticeable when iam on a blacktop surface. iam worried. i cant get any slop in the drive joints i can grab onto. so any input would be appreciated. i have a manual downloaded and i,ve went through it pretty good. my thought is its from the output shaft to the front drive. let me know if anyone has experianced this.

      ok help so according the service manual, Idle Air Mix Screw (aka Pilot screw) should be initially set to 2.5 turns out from fully seated.

      If I do that the motor doesn't want to start or stay running...right now the pilot screw is probably somewhere near 5 turns out....I'll take the carb off tomorrow to count to know for sure.

      mind you the carb got a new float seat,float needle and various other components in the kit.

      To get the motor running I hard to turn the pilot screw out quite a bit, and turned the idle speed screw in quite a bit...I didn't hook up an inductive tach to know what it is idling at, but does sound about right.

      What should the idle speed adjustment screw initially be set at (the one that has the black cable sheath with a knob you can twist easily)?

      Is there a special tool to turn the idle/pilot mix screw whilst the carb is on the running motor? I am using a slotted screw driver bit (normally goes into a driver) by hand..makes it hard to turn the driver and hard to tell how many turns .
