Have you checked the needle on the throttle slide to see what clip it’s on? I would  try to move the clip down one or two spots closer to the bottom. 

And when the engine is running if you can turn the air /fuel screw all the way in the engine should shut down. If not then that screw is worn and needs replacement. The engine should immediately respond to any adjustments on that screw. 

If not then it’s def going to need a new jet kit.  I was looking on eBay and Amazon. It has to be an oem or better brand. It was $27 bucks. It has to have the air fuel screw as well and all jets.    

I would order one and take the carb completely apart and soak it in a good bath for a day or two.   Then blow every port out on that cab with some good air pressure.   

Reassemble and set the air/fuel screw at 2 full turns from a snug position. 

That would be my way to go about it.

Is the float height in spec? It's most certainly a lean condition whether it's a jet still stopped up or float isnt allowing enough fuel in the bowl to keep jets wet.

That could be happening but what I’m referring to is the needle in the carb on the throttle. See the pic. The lower you move the clip the more fuel it allows.

I can't see the picture you tried to send. And I'm I just going to order a kit for it just to avoid all the B's, it wouldn't hurt to get it anyways. I didn't get into the carb aga n yet but I'm f it's the needle in thinking if and it has a little c clip in it there is only one spot for it to go. Not saying I looked at it real close either. I'm starting to break it back down see what else needs to be fixed and clean it up at Sam time. Here are a few pictures.

Would have have any idea where this goes it was in the box of parts and for the life of me I can't remember. I havent messed with these things since I was a kid and I didn't take it apart to be able to remember where it goes. I thought it was the chain roller but it's on there

I’m sorry I don’t know what you mean. Can you explain better ? I also didn’t get a picture 

That rubber piece with the bolt ? 

That looks like the chain roller bushing.  Take a look at the pic.

I noticed you pained the chain too. How did you get just the outside? Or did you paint the outside then tape it and repaint the inside to

Feel free to take as much of the paint scheme as you like.  I like the black because it gets the most wear and tear down there with the feet.   A bright color would show everything.   

 

That chain was $20 bucks on eBay.

So I finally was able to get back out to the garage and work a little more I just replaced the top end gaskets and am a little confused about setting the timing. First the flywheel ended up moving while removing the head. All I had to do was continue the rotation and set it back at top dead center correct? And when setting the timing do you line it up with the "T" on the flywheel it is it the notch. It got me a little confused bc this is the first four-stroke I have worked on.

Thanks. And don't ask me how I completely missed that in the manual. But it was  originally lined up with just the notch befor the T. Is there a chance the velves are bent. Or is that not far enough off to cause damage

 

And the top part of the dot on the exhaust cam is lined up with the top of the head correct while the inlet cam bottom part of the dot is lined up with the top of the head correct?

Ha, that's interesting. An old Honda manual I have said to line it up using the hash mark right by the T. Wonder if I mis timed the last yamaha i rebuilt then....

      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

      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!
