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.

Right up my alley!!! Nice work brother.   I had a feeling it was  the reverse cam! That looks great.  Keep the pics coming and check out my last post on the Mojave rebuild, it came out sweet.   I’m really digging all the rebuilds that have been going on so far!

      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.

      For those that have been pulling hair out-
      It took me a month to figure this out, but I am glad to report that I have figured out how to repair my 2004 450ES Speedometer

      If you have a Honda Foreman 02-04 450 ES model ( 4 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or a Honda Foreman 99-00 450 ES model ( 3 indicator lights on top of meter)
      or aOnda Rancher 00-03 TRX350ES

      and your display:

      - Is Blank

      - does not show the gear indicator spot at all (not the gear or --) but the
      backwards "L" that goes around the gear position - its just blank

      -your miles and hours have reverted to zeros or all 9"s and possibly now shows KM now instead of Miles

      -your speed shown seems to have almost doubled (possibly KMs per hour even thought it shows Miles)

      What has happened is your EEPROM chip on motherboard has lost the programming due to dead battery for
      a LONG time or an electrical malfunction etc...

      I have borrowed a friends speedometer (a trusting friend) removed the chip from his, copied the data and put it on mine and it reads perfect now.

      I can repair your speedometer it will have 1851 miles and 317.2 hours on it as that is the only copy I have for the 02-04 Foreman 450ES
      I can also do 99-2000 450ES speedometers (3 indicator lights on top of meter) but will have to double-check check on the mileage/hours copy I have and let you know to see if you want that

      I can also do TRX500FM and FE meters and the older Rancher 350ES meters as well but it has to have the above symptoms and not water damaged-caught on fire, cracked lcd, etc....

      If you have one you want repaired just send to me (just the board with LCD) I can repair it for you for $45.00 or barter if you have a second bad meter for parts
      Shipping would be 4 - $5.00 for First Class with tracking and I will pay return shipping
      I will confirm and send pictures to you as well to show a working completed repair on your display
      If there is heavy water corrosion, rust and rot damage etc.. its probably not repairable but I can try if you want -no fix-no pay
      If you PM me or whatever we can work it out I am easy and like you all I am always fiddling/learning with wheelers
      I think you will be happy and you will have more hair -mine is filling back in...................
      Message me if interested
       
      I am now also doing burned out screen repair if your screen has become unreadable due to UV sunburn damage from the sun
      It will appear burned or melted.
      The cost is 45.00 with same or next day turnaround
      Will do partial barter if you have a second speedometer for parts
      PM me if interested

      picked up my third timberwolf 250 for my daughters.  these are great light weight little quads.
       
      have a strange one for you.  the quad will NOT start in neutral.  it will start in first. 
      if i lift up on the gear selector just enough to hear the little click (its not loud, sounds like a contact clicking, perhaps the neutral safety switch?) the light will go out, but it won't yet be in first either.  that is how i have shown my daughter to start it and she can.
       
      id like to carry out whatever repair is needed.  i have the pdf of the shop manual but it doesn't really have a flow through diagram.
       
      any help appreciated!  thank you.
      i need to add something.  it feels like i can switch into another gear BELOW neutral.  
      so if i switch to neutral, i can keep pushing the gear selector, and it has another click below the neutral.  the light stays on, and when i pull up into first it kind of feels like it has two positions it moves through to arrive at first.

      New to Quadcrazy, Has any Yamaha owners had similar issue?
      1987 Yamaha YFM 350 Starts on Pull, but just spins on starter, and won't start.
    • By Belmontie
      Hi all, bike does start with the electric start mostly, but the battery was weak and wouldnt start it the other day so went to use the pull start, to say its hard is an understatement first of all you gotta do a little jiggling about til it catches then pulling it takes some effort now i know im not the strongest fella in the world but this is so much harder than it should be. 
      It does start of the pull just to get the engine to initailly turn is so hard any ideas why its happening or how to fix this,
      Thanks
