@Michael Eiland I changed your topic title to be a little more descriptive and hopefully get you some replies on this - 2002 Kawasaki Prairie 300 Parts Swap with 2003 Prairie 360

That’s a good question. You will have to study the two side by side and do a comparison on them.  Your going to have to take a look at the engine covers where the drive connects to the front wheels on the engine/tranny.   The years are close enough for a parts match but you never know.   

I had a fourtrax 4x4 that I was rebuilding. I needed some additional parts. Picked up a 2x4 bike one year later model and all my parts matched.  As I was looking at the engine the side cover had the indentations for the front drive shaft connection on the engine but was not a 4x4. My guess is that it’s easier to have a common engine case made and only have to change the covers/drive housing.  The way I seen it I could have used that motor on my 4x4 by putting the side cover and the small drive shaft assembly on the engine from the 4x4 model. 

On your bike the drive shaft has a bolt on drive shaft assembly I guess you would call it the bevel gear housing   That turns the drive shaft and has a small shaft coming out of the back of it.  The 4x4 model has two small drive shafts coming out of it on the front and back  I would think that would be your focus as far as fit up goes. If your engine can accept that drive shaft housing then you would be able to put that motor on the 4x4 frame.

      I got this 400, that wouldn't start. It would try, but wouldn't catch. I checked the valves and the L intake was tight at .002. The compression came in around 120. It didn't improve after a couple of drops of oil into the cylinder. So,I figured it was the valve causing the problem. So, I got the valves squared away, but it still won't start. I checked the spark and it seems like it's getting an intermittent spark. It fires a few times then nothing. If l let up on the button and then hit again immediately, it will fire a few more times, then repeat. So, what am I looking at as a possibility? Electrical issues are not my strong point. LOL

      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?

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks

      I bought a 2003 Recon from a kid that beat it – all plastics cracked etc, When I replaced the rear brake the inside – axle, rear oil  - were clean and in good shape, so I think Honda won the kid vs quad battle.
      It shifts a little clunky (I made the adjustment) and after riding for a while I get a hot friction material smell I wonder if he used the wrong oil and if any damage was done.

      It appears that the Service Manual thread at top of forum is dead as all the links no longer work.  I'm actually looking for service manual for a 2000 KVF300 Prairie that I just picked up.  Does anybody have link to one that they can share, or know where I can find one?  Thanks in advance for any help.

      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
