Hi folks,

New member here and new to the world of quad bikes. I have recently picked up 2 machines as projects to tinker with, a Kawasaki KLF300C 4x4 and a KLF300B 2WD.

I am sure I will learn a lot for the forum 🙂

Thanks!

Welcome to Quadcrazy! Those are some nice bikes you picked up.  What kind of shape are they in ? Post some pics, and any help or questions please ask away.  

You will love and enjoy this forum.  We have a lot of knowledgeable members here.

Thank you for the welcome!

Both bikes are on the rough side, the 4x4 had been sat outside for a very long time, lots of surface rust and flaking powder coat, dry rotted tyres etc but it really hasn't been hacked about. 

I cleaned and rebuilt the carb, went through all electrical connections and cleaned them, put a new fuel petcock on the tank, new oil and filter, new spark plug chucked a battery on it and it fired right up. I need to go through the brakes next.

I haven't spent much time on the 4x2 as I have only had it a couple of days. It is missing a few key parts like the fuel tank, gear selection pedal, cam cover etc.

I will try and post some pics in the next few days.

Thanks again!

Wow they are in some rough shape!  You may be better off combining both and making one solid bike.   The green on is that a 300? I had the 400 in that model and it was a beast.

Yes, they have certainly been neglected but it makes for a fun project 😁

Correct it is a 300, I hope to have it in riding condition in the near future so wish me luck with that!

Good luck and I’m sure you will have it up and running in no time.  Any questions you might have ask away.  There are a bunch of members here to help you along with the engine, drivetrain as well as making it look good with paint, vinyl etc.

      New to the ATV world, picked up a solid used Kodiak 400.  It appears the former owner did some sort of modification for a saddle bag or something along those lines--and I'd like to match it up and replace it.  Not a big deal by any means but something I thought I would give a shot at finding.
      does anyone recognize what kind of luggage/bag/cargo would go where those white tabs are he drilled through that fuel fender?
       
      Thanks again

      Motor starts right up, but when I open it up past quarter throttle it bogs way down while ridding, the longer it runs the worse it gets. If I just leave it in neutral and  give it full throttle it revs up and down. 
      Back history:
      Bike sat for 3 years,
      Installed new plug, cleaned the fuel tank, took it to a shop and had the carburetor gone though.
      Picked up from shop, motor bogged down first day and barely got me back to the truck an 1 mph.
      Took back to shop after a month I was told it had a bad plug, I told him I just replaced it.
      Got quad home and it is doing the same thing!!!!!!!!! 
       
      Thanks in advance for your support!
       
      The carburetor has recently been gone through by a shop

      Let me start with I have about 30 years of ATC experience, but not much with stuff made after 1988.  Some, but I'm mechanically inclined so it's all good.  I"m rehabbing a 1997 Bayou 220 to send back into the wild and the mechanicals are now all good, just working on making the electrical system...electric.  Right now, I have no power on the white wire as tested directly on the plug at the starter solenoid.  I'm assuming that wire is supposed to be hot any time it's attached to a battery?  The genius that had it before snipped a couple wires and inserted a fairly heavy push button for electric start bypassing the electrical system. I think i've corrected everything north of the solenoid but the white wire has me stumped.  Is my assumption that this should always be hot with a hot battery correct?  Does this indicate a broken circuit in the starter solenoid?  Relay was also bad and wired incorrectly, but that's resolved and I can make the relay click bypassing the solenoid and connector, directly giving the white wire 12V.  Thoughts?
