Skid plate bolts

Recommended Posts

I have a 1988 Kawasaki 220 bayou. I removed the skid plate and misplaced the 4 bolts. Anyone know the size of these bolts, 3 dealers could not find any information. Can you please help?

Since  Kawasaki doesn't give the  size and pitch of the bolts, I would suggest estimating the diameter of them  and then  go to a metric bolt supplier and  buy  one bolt of each that appears the same size. Get one of each pitch if there is a fine and coarse pitch  offering in that size.

Here is a conversion chart  of common inch bolts and their standard metric equivalent. I'll add it to   the downloads section  also.

Whenever I find a bike that I buy for parts and won’t need after I’m done tearing it down I keep all the bolts. I have a sorter and try as best possible to match them up.  This bike I just finished needed bolts. I went to the bins and boom I had what I need.  Never throw metric bolts away they are like gold when your in a jam.  Especially for the plastics. Most common sizes are 8,10,12,14mm on these machines. I keep em all!!!!!!

Good tip! My bolts are bent on the bottom of my quad. I need to look into some skids.

Most common thread pitch for metric bolts will be 1.25 You can also just buy an assortment kit of metric bolts at an auto parts store and can see which one actually fits. Then you will have the size and pitch.

      I'm likely going to have to drop the swingarm on a 300FW. Are the lock rings and pivot bolts standard or left handed threads?  I looked at the service manual and it doesn't specify left hand so I"m assuming standard right handed threads.  Not sure though.  The last Yamaha I had apart was regular right handed threads but haven't had a 300 apart before.

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      I need help with wiring on a 1998 (I think, 10th digit of the VIN was W) Bayou. I'm not getting spark, I'm pretty sure it is due to grounds being off because the harness is pretty hacked as far as the electric start and charging system goes. I'm needing a good wiring schematic. I found one online and there are a few things that don't add up on it so I'm skeptical that it is really for my year and model. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Got a good deal on an 89 bayou 300. Couple questions. First is in the picture I have posted. Note the two wires at the bottom of the pic (white and black/yellow). They were not hooked up to anything and Im not sure if they are supposed to go to the battery or somewhere else and what they are for.
      Second question is I had the carb apart for a cleaning. The vaccum operated slide has a spring under the cap with a plastic clip that goes inside the spring. Is there a proper location inside the spring for that clip. Right now it is just below half way inside the spring.
      It runs alright but keeps fouling the plug. Pulled the plug off, cleaned it and dried it off and it starts back up but not sure how long before itll do it again, last time it was about 20 minutes of riding and it bogged out and wouldnt start.

      Hey there i have 1994 suzuki 230 or 250 im not sure what one it has no plastics at all as you can see in my display picture a pull start and is semi auto and is not 4x4 the guys at the store said it was a 250 but it looks nothing like the ones i seen on google could you help me figure out what one i own.
      also i am having issues with it some times i run it for a bit and it begins to bog and sounds like it is missing and other times it runs fine.
      if i baby it i can run it all day but if i push it and not to hard but giving it a good run or top out 5th gear for 5mins it beguins to do the same but after letting it sit for 5-10 mins it will bog out or start fine.
      any one with any info to this i would love to know what you think i havent the slitest clue and im to go riding this friday!!!![/size][/size]
