I was wrong on the brown if I understand the partial wiring diagram above correct.  Looks like brown is a metered 12V post rectifier and blue is from the magneto which would indicate likely lighting. So probably spares.  The Bayou had like 3 extra browns and at least one blue...they were all for accessory.  Good place for a winch or extra lighting i guess!

Maybe extra lighting at best because this bike has no battery. It’s self reliant as far as power goes so you really couldn’t add much more onto it.

Ok I just wasn't sure. Is there any other test Incan check to make sure the switch works correctly so I don't have any issues with it getting hot on me

Have you jumped the fan to see if it runs ?  

If so the second test would be to remove the sensor from the radiator and connect a tester to both leads of the sensor and put the tester on continuity. There should be no reading while it’s cool.  Then put it in a small pot of water (just the sensor part) and as the water heats up the sensor should close giving you a reading. It should close at about 185-190 deg.

Ok figured the blue and brown wires.  They are for your rear brake light. One is by the carburetor should run to a brake switch on the rear brake petal.  The second set up by the front goes to the right brake handle lever.

Thanks for the help, everything seems to be in working order for the most part. Just trying to figure out this crab. I got it all cleaned up, it was real bad on the inside. But for some reason as soon as you put it in gear and give it gas it spits and sputs  but if it's just in neutral it's fine@MarkinAR

Double check and don’t make the same mistake I made. Make sure you put the right jets back in the right spot. When putting the carb back together the pilot jet and the main jets are the same thread. I reversed them and the bike died at as soon as I put it in gear.

I thought I might have mixed them up. One is actually shorter then the other but can't see what one goes where lol

Ha. I did that on a big bear. 2nd pilot is a 74 and main is a 115 or something. Doesn't run quite right with them backwards. Identical jets though...

I couldnt get it to run right for nothing run great at standstill but as soon as I put it in gear just spit and sputter. It would go but just kept cutting out. I kept trying the mixture screw and nothing would fix it. I'm checking now to see if that's what happened

I went out last night and bought some paint. I was just going to beat it around but figured I have this much time into it already why not fix what needs to be fixed clean it up nice and go from there. I've never actually painted one or gone full out to fix them the right way. Normally cut corners and beat it until it's done. But going to put some effort into it. Will post some pictures later for befor and afters

I'm getting ready to put it together now and go try it. As far as paint I had my girl pic it up while she was out last night. I told her Kawasaki green she came back with. I mean it does match what someone else already used to paint it once but not what I'm looking for I don't think. She tries though

Here are a few pics of the work I did. The color I found on eBay and Amazon.

The other colors are standard gloss black for nerf bars and then high heat satin finish on the exhaust.  

The aluminum portion (silencer)  I used an aluminum polish called mother’s.  It’s great for all soft metals.

That looks sick. You did a nice job. You use a spray gun or cans. Oh and the main hey is the one with the needle coming in from the other side right? And that gets the smaller hike correct?

The main is the one with the needle. It gets the larger of the two jets. They have numbers on them. Mine were not legible due to being what looks to be worn or sanded maybe during the cleaning process of the previous owner. So if you can read the numbers then lol at the carburetor section of your manual and it clearly explains where they go.  But for sure the larger hole jet is at the needle location.     

Yes all can spray. Wire wheel in a drill and sand paper. I spray a good prep coat on before and spray away!  The prep coat is a clear type coat that helps the new paint stick well.

And FYI all of this material I bought on line for $125 bucks. That includes the new color matching chain and I was missing the air factory box.  That air box assembly was $45 so really it cost me $80 if I wasn’t missing that air box.  That chain was only $20 bucks.

Well I think I might have had them in wrong. I seen one was shorted then yhr other so just guessed that it was on top of the other piece lol. And the pain does look real good. I don't think I will be able to do as well but give it what I got

Still not working right actually a little worse this time. But if I stick a rag in the end of the air filter box everything works great

      Does anyone have the cdi box wiring? I'm trying to hook up aftermarket cdinbox and i keep confusing myself with the trigger signal wire trigger ground wire and 12v. Any help would be appreciated thank you for your input 
    • By panthers06232
      it is a 99 mojave bought it couple weeks ago and it would run i relaced some stuff in the carb like the needle and seat and one of the jets put new plug in it and now it runs good until you rev it way up like wide open throttle then it misses almost like it is hitting a rev limiter could it be that it needs a new carb gasket or what are some ideas that could be wrong with this thing

      I have a 99 250 Quadrunner. Currently has no spark. It would run for 5 minutes, then shut off. After it cooled down about 20-30 minutes, it would start again. I ordered a new stator and found the old one was damaged (copper windings broken)  I installed the new stator, filled with oil and now it has no spark. Any assistance would be helpful

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      I’m working on a Kawasaki Bayou KLF400 for a family member that doesn’t have spark. I’ve already replace the ignition switch and the stator which were defective. The stator had a melted connector and one of the phase had low resistance and low VAC output. 
      What I’ve figured out so far is that I’m not getting 12V to the ignition coil when I turn the key to the ON position. From what I understand, the 12V should come from the CDI. I’ve resistance tested both wires going from the CDI to the ignition coil (Green/white and black/yellow). They are fine. The only 12V coming from the ECU is on the yellow/red wire.
      I don’t have the wiring diagram for the 400 but I’m working with the one for the Bayou 300 which looks pretty similar except for the wire color between the CDI and ignition coil. On the 300 diagram, the yellow/red wire goes to the ignition coil, not the black/yellow… All the other wires color match except for this one. Not sure if that’s normal?
      Thanks!

      Hi all, I was gifted this Bayou but she's been sitting quite some time. It won't crank using the factory start button but when I jumper the starter solenoid it cranks but there is no spark. The key has power coming in on the white wire and when turned on supplies power to the brown wire coming out.

      I guess I should start with testing the pickup? I heard I may be able to jumper the wires coming from the pickup with an LED bulb and it will flash? I noticed in the manual that it should have around 110 ohms resistance so I'll check that as well. One thing I noticed was that the starter circuit relay has power on one of the black wires with the key on- this doesn't seem normal as I'm assuming the black wires are grounds? I think one of them comes from the start switch, travels through the starter circuit relay and then grounds the starter relay?
      Mine is a 1991 so it has the 7 wire CDI (ignitor) and a 2 yellow wire alternator ( as opposed to the later 3 wire type ) with another 2 wires for the source coils (black & red wires ). The pickup wires are blue and black I do believe. Any help appreciated and yes I will test the pickup ASAP.

      I'm trying to understand how the system works and I don't understand what the yellow / red wire from the kill switch does- I assume it gets grounded when the kill switch is "on" and therefore grounds the CDI so it can't activate the ignition coil? I noticed in the diagram that that yellow / red wire looks like it may be grounded by the ignition key switch when in the "off" position?
      I also don't have 12v power at any of the wires going into the CDI- doesn't the CDI need to be powered? I also read on this forum that someone used a GM HEI module in place of the factory CDI just to test it for spark- does anyone have any info on that?

      I hope I'm not missing something simple!
      Here is a link to the diagram for my bike (which was posted by another user): https://www.quadcrazy.com/atvforum/topic/13742-1988-bayou-220-lost-spark/?tab=comments#comment-101193

      Any help appreciated!
