2002 Kawasaki Bayou 220 Jumps When Shifting

Recommended Posts

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

Does it jump or just buck like its running out of gas?

It kinda bucks I guess but it’s got plenty of gas I ordered a new petcock Because it also drips gas very slowly when it’s sitting not running and I read that could be the problem but I don’t know if that has anything to do with the jumping

Sounds like you need the carburetor cleaned or rebuilt. Have you checked the clutch adjustment?

No I haven’t but now when he was shifting it splattered oil everywhere and a bunch of hoses came loose that were underneath and we can’t figure out where the hoses go to can anybody help me out with this? I have found where one of the ends connect but I can’t find where the other connects!!!

The other hoses most likely don’t connect to anything. They are breather and over flow hoses. They are supposed to run down the back of the engine and hang.   If it spits oil out it really can only be from a few things. 

You over filled the engine with too much oil.

The bike was tipped over and oil got into the over flow hoses. 

The engine breather line that goes to your air box is clogged.

Really ok so none of the hoses bigger or smaller go to anything? So how would I unclog The engine great airline or check to see if it is clogged And how would I get the oil out if it was overfilled would I just pulled the drain plug and let some of it out?

That’s your carburetor bowl overflow. It should run down to the bottom behind the engine.  If fuel is coming out then the float in the carburetor is having an issue.  It’s not raising up and pushing the pin that shuts fuel down.   Maybe a quick carb rebuild may be in order.  

Oil issue, drain the oil out and might as well change it. There should be a sight glass on the side of the engine or a dip stick.  Find it and fill it back up accordingly.

Ok and there is also some oil dripping and a burning smell and a little smoke coming off the engine 

Thank you so much for your help I know nothing about these things I bought it for my son used and I guess it came with some problems

Your welcome but it’s no big deal. The  smoke coming off of the engine on my bayou was the small valve access caps on the top of the engine.

May not be your problem but this is what I did.  First I bought a can of gunk  engine cleaner. Follow the directions on how to use it and clean it good. This way you can see where the oil is coming from. 

Two caps have o rings and they flatten out over time. I took mine off left the o rings in place. Cleaned them from any grease and put high heat silicone and re installed. 

Again this may not be your problem but worth a look.  

You will get the hang how to do things on the bike just take your time and ask if your not sure. Put a piece of cardboard under the bike so you don’t stain the floor with the dripping oil. 

My son didn’t know much about atvs and two years into it it’s a great pass time hobby we have now. We find older neglected or garage buried bikes and fix them up and bring them back to life.

      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.

      Ride Review:
      As the owner of a pretty tricked out 2008 Kawasaki Teryx, I am very familiar with the Teryx. My Teryx did not stay stock long, but I recently spent three days in a bone stock 2008 Teryx on a ride to the Grand Canyon.
      The 2008 Teryx is a great machine, but my biggest complaint was that it came out with carbs instead of fuel injection. In less that a year since the first Teryxs hit dealer floors, Kawasaki dealers are already selling 2009 Teryxs with EFI. The New digital fuel inject on the Teryx is really nice. The engine starts right up and idles smoothly. On acceleration, the 2009 Teryx felt more crisp and seemed to get up to top speed a little quicker. While it is not a night and day difference, I definitely preferred everything about the EFI on the 2009 over the carburetors on the 2008.
      Next up on the list of what's new is a fuel gauge. I know it doesn't seem like something to get that excited about, but I do some long distance rides, and the fuel level display takes the mystery out of "I wonder how much fuel I have left?"
      The Teryx Sport has upgraded aluminum wheels which not only look much better, but are also 2.2 lbs. lighter than the standard steel wheels. Losing unsprung weight not only requires less energy to get the tires spinning, but also helps the suspension work better. And as a little bonus, the aluminum wheels are actually strong that their steel counterpart.
      Suspension is on the 2009 Teryx Sport has a few upgrades as well. The gas-charged Kayaba shocks have reservoirs all the way around to help reduce fade in rough terrain. The preload adjustment is step-less, and they have fully adjustable rebound and compression (high and low speed) damping. Although we did not have any opportunities to jump the new Teryx Sport, we did get into some nasty whoops and hard g-outs.
      I felt the Teryx Sport suspension handled the terrain better than a standard Teryx suspension. The ride through the light chop was a bit smoother than a standard Teryx and when we got into the whoops I felt a little more comfortable as well. Although I was able to bottom out the front shocks on a few hard g-outs, a standard shock would have gone to the stops more often and with more force. Overall, even though I did not spend any time trying to fine tune the adjustments on the new Sport shocks, I think they are a worthy improvement over standard shocks.
      The Lime Green plastic on the Teryx Sport is a great color. Much more sharp than the drab green found on the 2008 Teryx. And with all the UTVs out in the dunes in Glamis, there is no doubt that you are in a Kawasaki when you are driving it.
      The 2009 Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI 4x4 Sport has a MSRP of $11,899.

      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

      So I bought a Bayou 220 as me 'Black Friday' score, and was informed it has carb issues.. 
      A little history from the previous owner: they suspected the carb was bad as it was 'running like crap' so they did a rebuid kit on it. Didn't fix issue so they took it to a shop where the tech installed an aftermarket(?) carb, but had to modify the throttle cable to get it to work. Quad ran great at 1/4 throttle, but anything above that and the throttle would stick and the machine would run like garbage again.
      What I know and think: I hear carb issues are common and fairly easy to fix. Also, I think they used the 'universal' rebuild kit that claims '88-'11, but the jets and such were different from '00-'03 (gaskets, etc. appear to be the same) so their original attempt was a good idea, just not good enough.
      They did give me the original carburetor with the 4-wheeler, but it has the wrong internals. I'm thinking if I can get the right jets, springs, etc for the rebuild, I should be able to get this thing running right. Of course, I still need to charge the battery back up, change all the fluids, replace fuel lines, plug and wire.. ya know, the basics for a machine that's been sitting for roughly 9 months. lol
