1994 Bayou 220 Neutral safety switch


Arizona

Recommended Posts

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

No worries.  Most likely not the neutral safety switch. It’s the reverse cam. Read that post and you will see the contact point on the revers cam that’s spring loaded.  The spring loses its bounce and the contact rod has a problem grounding the switch.   Just be sure to sand the switch a bit before you reinstall.   Good luck.

Well already ordered one and cant be returned cheaply so ill just replace it. Have switch off

ohms out ok then goes open then ok etc. might be me moving the contacts lol. I did ohm the pin

on the reverse stop to ground and not liking the readings so I ordered a new one anyway. Cheap insurance

while in there. What holds the reverse stop in on that shaft? is it just floating there. Just remove the c clip and 

the tensioner and it slides out?  Some pics for your enjoyment

Yes you have to replace that reverse cam stopper while your in there.  The neutral safety switch is not really a switch. It’s just two contacts on a board.  All I did was sand the surface down of the switch and replace the cam stopper.

Put a sh** load of grease on the bevel gear and shaft before you reassemble.  

When you put the drive shaft back the four bolts, tighten them in a crisscross pattern and use a little thread lock or a dab of silicone on the nuts when they are tight.  

Nice work and great pics.

Well the reverse cam stopper showed the other day so I installed it and rechecked the readings on the 

switch. I showed good so I just sanded down the switch like you said and installed it. Put it all back together

and now I get a neutral light and im sure its gonna crank when I get a battery. You nailed it. Just a 12 dollar

part and some labor and it seems fixed. Thanks for the info. Now the 220 is out of the paint shop, some pics Az.

      Hi everyone. 
      Let me explain the thread title. 
      My husband and I are very active in the nudist community, and we have stayed at many and most of the mainstream nudist and clothing optional campgrounds in the USA. We are now approaching our retirement and would like to start a podcast to share those off the road / backwoods / little known camping areas where nudity is allowed. We have purchased a 5th wheel camping trailer with a rear garage for the ATV and now need some good reports on the one to buy. 
      We are most interested in a side by side unit but would love to get your thoughts. 
      Feel free to stop by and say Hi and ask anything you would like to better understand what we are looking for in an offroad unit. 
      Thanks for reading and hope to hear from you.

      I have been exploring all the options available, so many, its hard to choose. I have kind of narrowed it down to the Honda Pilot, Subaru Outback, and Kind of looking at the Outlander, although its a little small,  the new one is nice looking. Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations or gripes with any of these rides. I have driven Jeeps for the past 25  years and they have been great, but their price point has gotten to high. Expieriences good or bad would be helpful. Thanks!

      Bucking started about a month ago and works ok after 1/2 hour warmup.  Today while working on it i discovered that if i put the ignition switch in LIGHT position it runs fine right from the start.
      I'm stumped!  Any idea why this could be?

      Hey I have a 1997 big bear 350 4x4
      I replaced the shifter shaft and the shift arm linkage and the rod when I installed them all I was unaware that you had to line the dot on the shifter shaft with the gap on the linkage arm gap put it all back  together and rode it I can't get it to shift in the right gears  I can move the shift cam by hand and goes in different gears but with the shifter shaft in it riding I can't put it in R or N 
      Anyone know how to line up the shifter shaft and the shift cam s

      This is something I'm extremely curious about. Has anyone ever attempted to buy a quad (or any other vehicle) from an impound lot? I've always wondered if this could be a bargain, or a waste of time. Google searches do turn up some helpful results. Looks like the state of NJ holds auctions online which I'd be a bit hesitant about.
       
      My online searches haven't really turned up any results of anyone buying an ATV this way. I'd be really curious if anyone tried this, or knows someone who has. I've actually found a couple pages with online auctions for my state, but none had ATVs.
