1994 Bayou 220 Neutral safety switch


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 shit 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.

      Here is a reminder to confirm comparability when ordering parts.
      This E-Ton Viper 90 that does not start or crank. Before coming to the shop, the ignition switch had been replaced.
      Watch the video to find out the diagnosis!

      Hi bought a 2012 kingquad ASI last year a great machine which is a delight to ride, but I find sometimes it doesn’t go into top gear just revs high at about 42mph. Any idea ???

      Hello,
      I am reviewing the differential of my bayou 220 and I came across two situations:
      1 - How can the final drive roll be changed? in the manual it shows that the part can be disassembled, but not to the point of being able to change the bearing;
      2 - the differential pinion has a gap, so I would like to know if it would need adjustment or if it is so.
      I put a photo and a video to show

      Hello All,
      I have a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350 4x4 trying to get fixed up so my grandson can go out in the woods with me.
      We have owned it over 10 years.  It got harder to start, until it finally would not.  Replaced the carb.  Right afterwards, it started and ran nicely, but after turning it off, would not restart.  Tonight I used starting fluid and ran, then died.  Adjusted the idle up a little, used more starting fluid and ran great.  It idled about 15 minutes.  Turned it off, and restarted.  Ran it around the yard about 5 minutes.  Turned it off, and would not restart.
      Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
      Thank you.

      Hi guys,
      I am hoping someone might be able to help me out. My Kawasaki 300 4x4 has an issue where it doesn't seem to want to go into neutral and also it will shift into reverse without using the lockout knob.
      If anyone can suggest what to look at it would be very much appreciated.
      Thanks.
