The uncertain future for the Bayou


Recommended Posts

So here at the old household we came up with an agreement... If my 99 Bayou 220 doesn't sell my May 16th then I'll keep it, pull the motor, fix the issues, and get it running.

Just in case it doesn't sell... Here are the problems I gotta fix:

Clutch: The clutch adjuster is, I do believe, stripped. It just never meets resistance. My brother did overtighten it, so it's a good possibility.

Starter: Both bolts are broken off... One at the head and one flush with the block.

Brakes: The left side brake handle (also parking brake) broke clean off. The cable is still there (although the end is ripped off), but the handle is gone completely.

I'm thinking I might just influence the bid a little bit, so I can keep it...

The 220 bayous are a dime a dozen.  Unless you have the parts for free and the experience to pull the clutch, get the starter bolts out of the cover without damaging the engine cover etc then throw on a brake handle too boot i would say $350 is a fair price negotiable down to $300. 
Heck you could probably get more money parting it out. 
Plastics are worth $250 in very good shape, and the racks get you another $60 a piece.

Bayous here in the south aren't readily available in decent running shape. Most of the decent 2wd were discarded in favor of 4wd so they are usually too far gone to bring back. Last one I flipped was a 98 220 I paid $200 for and flipped for $500 and that was a bit low but it was profit and gone in a couple hours from listing it. Have another one bought for $300, it's a complete 300 2wd, should fetch $650 or so. To OP in this thread, I say make it a rider if you have the skills and then keep or sell.

      I have a couple other topics on this Bayou but this one is the reverse lever seal is leaking.
      Talked to the dealer and have no listing on the seal. Looks fairly simple but is the seal installed from
      the outside of crankcase or from the inside before I remove it.
      Next question where can I get the new part? I found these on ebay but not sure if they fit.
      any ideas where to buy it? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kawasaki-KLF220-88-02-Bayou-KLF250-03-10-Winderosa-822138-Engine-Oil-Seal-Kit/352356942519?fits=Year%3A1995|Model%3ABayou+220|Make%3AKawasaki&epid=209928936&hash=item520a1c42b7:g:ZKUAAOSwx6pYooaN:sc:USPSFirstClass!78006!US!-1

      Hello,
      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.

      Hello, I am restoring a bayou 220 here in Brazil, I have a question regarding the rear brake activated by the lever on the left side. The ex-owner connected it in place of the reverse cable and as this is incorrect, could someone show me through pictures where I correctly connect the rear brake cable? Another thing, every time you reverse, is it necessary to activate the reverse key?
