1995 Bayou 220 Reverse lever seal leak

Recommended Posts

I have a couple other topics on this Bayou but this one is the reverse lever seal is leaking.

Talked to the dealer and have no listing on the seal. Looks fairly simple but is the seal installed from

the outside of crankcase or from the inside before I remove it.

Next question where can I get the new part? I found these on ebay but not sure if they fit.

any ideas where to buy it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-KLF220-88-02-Bayou-KLF250-03-10-Winderosa-822138-Engine-Oil-Seal-Kit/352356942519?fits=Year%3A1995|Model%3ABayou+220|Make%3AKawasaki&epid=209928936&hash=item520a1c42b7:g:ZKUAAOSwx6pYooaN:sc:USPSFirstClass!78006!US!-1

Here are the pics, if the seal in installed from the outside just a matter of 

removing the reverse lever and popping it out and installing a new one.

If from the inside (hope not) it will be an ordeal. Any ideas where to 

buy the seal? Were the ones on e/bay correct?

Ok I know the part.  I am not 100% sure but I remember seeing from the inside when I had my cover off a rounded imprint where the seal sat so I’m going to say it comes off from the outside. Going to need a pick to get it out I would assume.    I can’t be sure though.   Worst case, buy the part and see what it looks like and go from there. If you have to pull the cover however later on then it’s a pain in the ass job.

Got the seal kit from ebay, looks good. Have a problem.

The clamp that holds the reverse cable by the reverse lever

is mangled. I cant find a pic that I can see well of the clamp.

Can you take a good pic of yours so I can see how I need to bend it back in 

place so it holds the reverse cable to align it with the lever and hold it in place?

You can see mine in pic #2 it wont hold cable needs to be bent certain direction. Let me know

Thanks Az

Did this item you purchased fit your bayou? I have the same leakage problem and I thought about buying this kit that you mentioned, could you share the link if it is not this one?

Hope it works out for you. Az

As soon as the parts arrive and I change, I notice, from what I saw I will need 3 retainers and I will try to find them here in Brazil. As soon as I make the exchange I show the progress here, including photos: D

      good day everyone, 
                        new to this page. I need help with my 1994 fourtrax 300 4x4. the bike stop sparking for some odd reason so no big deal I order a new ignition coil, that was not it so I order a new cdi box. now I get sparks. by now the battery is low from cranking so much, so I boost it with the truck. the bike as the hardest time to start and when it does it runs rough, bogging, backfire,..., reverse light is on even if im not in reverse but in neutral. and the reverse light gets briter as I rev the bike.i clean the carb twice, remove the reverse sensor and check the ohm, reading 0.0 to 0.9. any idea, I need to get this bike going asap. thanks for your time

      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.

      I bought a new carb and it is leaking gas from the over flow tube. What causes it. It's a brand new carb.

      I just bought a 91 and when I went to change the oil in the rear diff it had water in it (milky oil). There are no leaks in the seals so I think it's coming in the vent tube. Thing is I can't find it. Anyone know where it is.
