The main on those is a 152.5 and I just noticed the picture you put up of the carb, that’s the cleanest factory carb I ever saw....so like I’m thinking...is that a China carb? Does it say Mikuni on it? The China carbs have one big problem...wrong jetting. I’m going to guess if you give it that shot of carb x,earner when you crack the throttle it is going to rev. Now I can’t wait for you to report back.

Lol no need to thank us! That’s what we’re here for !! Wiring is one of my strong points so any clarification you need feel free to ask. Nice work  so far and keeping your cool, this thread may beat the one me and @JacobSlabach had on his bayou 400.  That was a long one I’m going to have to go back and look! 

Keep us posted.   

FYI you can have Quadcrazy on your smartphone.

What on God's green earth would have caused this. It's the decompression lever. It busted clear through the case. I installed it just like manual said keep spring completely relaxed if you wind spring up once it wont work. Now look its demolished.

You no the cap that covers it it busted right through it you can't tell in the picture because the pieces are covering it I'll snap you another one real quick. What on earth would cause that theres nothing in there besides a flip lever for god sakes.

Wow and it’s the same shape as the decompression lobe too. Something was not put back right would be my guess because even with the spring off or bad that part should still stay seated.   

Whats your thoughts ?

Since the spring didn't hold it very tight from it slapping back and forth in there it's only aluminum cans still turning so it got beat by the stop pin and the rod its mounted on flipped sideways and busted out. Theres literally nothing in there but it u no. I'm just glad it busted out not in.

Yep I think  you dodged a bullet.  So now what ? Have you located a new cap and what’s your thoughts on the cam assembly? Maybe a whole new set up, cam and all?

I just put in a brand new cam and a brand new cap and it just did the same exact thing is there something that holds that cam or decompression ring in place. Also I noticed another thing when I started it disconnected the battery ran like it was supposed to hook battery back up couldn't hit the gas again. I'm getting so frustrated with thing its unreal about the hundredth time I've taken it apart.

Holy crap a second failure!!!! Ok time to take a breather and really look into this to see what’s happening.  That is a serious failure. 

Without disturbing too much try to open the head up see what’s loose or does not look right.   It’s almost as if the engine is kicking backward ?

Seems to me the timing gear side is what keeps it from walking. On the decompressor side, can the swing weights be put on backwards? I don’t have one here to remember how they are set up.

It will go in 2 different ways but I put it in exactly how the service manual showed it both times now before I put it in and wounded the spring once never had this problem now manual says put it in with spring in relaxed position do not wind it once it will not work right but both times broke the case out like something is throwing it out the busting the weight off and weird thing it started running perfectly when I unhooked the battery its getting so much juice from stator it blew my neutral light out this is crazy I just keep throwing money at it and just keeps costing me more its insane

      Several months ago, I finally got around to fixing the bayou. Rebuilt the carb, replaced the fuel selector switch, hoses and fuel filter, and she ran great. Only had 2 minor issues since then where, at higher speeds, it acted like it was choking out when I let off the throttle.
      Lately I've noticed if I let it go for more than a week, it almost drains the battery dead trying to start. I initially thought battery, but after inspecting I found very little if not any fuel flow through the line until it starts and runs.
      I'm a little baffled and don't have much time to mess with it as most my free time right now is spent on getting my rv up and ready for hunting season in the next 3 weeks. So any help on quick diagnosis checks would be helpful. Otherwise I'll just keep starting it every 3-4 days to keep things primed until I'm done hunting.
       
      Oh, and another question on a different topic. Does anybody know what the mounting brackets on the front rack are for? I'm referring to the 2 angled metal tabs with threaded holes that are located on the left, near your knee when sitting on the quad?

      posted a while back - it was running at one point - I have all the plastic shroud off - it's down to frame and engine now
      -fuel pump: when line from petcock is attached, no fuel comes out other side to carb; the line to the carb is open (can blow through it); I thought when I cranked engine that the pump would spit out fuel on other side but it does not; I removed fuel pump and opened it up - diaphragm looks good - but internal areas had lotsa calcification build up - I cleaned this out and dried it good - the clear plastic pieces (?diaphragms) aren't broken - the spring w/ steel ball on end moves freely; am putting it back on tomorrow; but can anyone answer about the pump? isn't it supposed to pump fuel through it... to other side... to carb? puzzling
      -along with fuel pump: I replaced petcock 3 weeks ago (gas tank had rusty fuel in bottom - cleaned it out prior to new petcock); when I turn petcock arrow NOT to on or reserve, fuel comes out of line; when I turn it to on or reserve, fuel doesn't come out; puzzling
      -I don't know what's on back of fuel pump - it's a valve that has a hose coming out of it - looks like it goes to engine/carb - I haven't traced this out yet - what is it?
      -can squirt gas on air filter and engine will run for 2-3 seconds then stop - fuel in top of carb (under diaphragm) does same
      -it likely needs carb rebuild - will get to this - but something isn't allowing fuel to get from fuel pump to carb
      -I THINK it has a mikuni model x carb - diaphragm is ID 26mm  OD 68mm - hard to find inexpensive diaphragm, I guess because it's a model x
      -last thing - I replaced solenoid due to old one clicking; I HAVE to be charging the battery or it won't start/turn over - battery just goes dead; but if charging, it'll turn over nicely; i'm guessing it's a bad battery
      -any help appreciated - I've never owned an ATV before - inherited this beast from grandparent in-law

      On one of the atv I recently purchased the neutral switch is bad, Any one ever replaced one.
      looking for some pics. I assume I need to remove the drive shaft to pull the cover foward
      to clear the gear shift shaft. Any easy ways to do this. So far have motor moved forward 
      all bolts out except nuts on drive shaft which are loose Thanks Az

      When it comes to adding more power to your ATV, the first thing that usually comes to mind is bolting on a slip-on exhaust. However, that usually means you are also bolting on a lot more noise. HMF do...

      Just picked an '03 Bayou 300 2WD.  It runs ok, needs a little help though. Maybe someone can answer some questions for me.
      1. The choke "off" position is the lever all the way right, correct?
      2. The choke seems mechanically... funky. It has a little valve clamp around the rubber boot where it goes into the carb, seems kind of janky, I don't think there's typically a valve clamp on that part? The engine seems like its running really rich, smoking a bit, so I wonder if I can just completely remove the choke cable to see if that's part of the issue? But I don't fully understand the choke needle setup. Is "choked" when the needle is being pushed in, or pulled out? Like it I chopped the cable just outside the rubber boot by the carb, would I be permanently choking it or permanently unchoking it.
      3. I've read that I can tweak the air/fuel screw and maybe fix the rich mix. Where is that even located, and if it's behind a cap that I have to drill out... where is that?
      Thanks for any tips
