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!!!!!!

there are a couple of inexpensive metric thread pitch and hole gauges out there

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 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.

      Just bought a LT 230 anything I should watch for. It runs and drive good. Just don't want no surprises

      Hey everyone, I've been scratching my head over this for most of the day.  I bought a couple of Bayou 220's, got them running (they've both been sitting), and started tweaking and fixing small things.  One of them is mostly done, the other had an aftermarket carb on it and I've been trying to sort that out.
       
      Anyway, while adjusting the carb it died a few times, I restarted and moved on until it died and wouldn't restart.  I figured maybe I'd flooded it or something - after further attempts I realized I had no spark.  Since I have two identical machines I have many parts at my disposal.  I've swapped the CDI, spark plug and coil with no luck.  I have good resistance readings from the stator and pick up (135 and 110 respectively),  I don't have a peak voltage meter but I measure around 53VAC on the stator when cranking.  I have a 4 wire stator, not an alternator like the newer ones.  Grounds look good, I've checked the kill switch by verifying that it and the ignition switch grounds the black/yellow wire to the CDI.  I can turn the engine slowly and see the pickup short the meter as well, seems normal right?  So far everything I've checked looks the same on both machines.  I've got the service manual and wiring diagrams.  Do these readings make any sense?  I'm obviously missing something but I'm stumped.  thanks!

      Do any of you fine folks happen to have a rear swing arm skid plate for a 400EX you would part with at a reasonable price?  New ones are between $60 and a Hundo and that seems a bit steep.  I've kicked around the idea of fabbing one but 2nd hand OEM would be preferable.  Thoughts?  I have a belly skid plate but missing the swing arm skid plate and really don't wanna taco the brake rotor.

      Got a 99 or 2000 bayou 220. Its started making alot of noise, then the starter would spin freely. Took it apart and determined the three bolts in the starter clutch had sheared. Installed the new starter clutch and in the process, not realizing that Japanese motors turn counterclockwise, I turned the crankshaft clockwise about a half revolution so that the key holes would be on top of the crankshaft for easier installation of starter clutch. I get everything back together and try it. The pressure is so great that its very hard to pull with the pull start, the electric starter turns it over but it struggles greatly. A key issue could be this. When I engage the choke the starter will barely turn it over and you can't pull start at all because there's so much pressure. Like the back pressure cant be released once the carburetor is choked. I'm pretty sure by turning the crankshaft clockwise I screwed something up but I cannot figure out what it is. If there's anyone that can give some advice it will be greatly appreciated.

      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]
