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.

Here we see a ton of the bayou 220 models for sale. The 300 and 400 4x4 models are harder to find.  I am always a fan of fixing em up but the 220 bayous are getting old for me i guess.

      I have a 2018 Sportsman 570 SP Hunters Edition. I bought the quad new in August of 2018 and put around 20 miles on it with no issues. In early January of this year the quad was acting as if it had a bad battery even though it had been plugged into a tender. I checked the battery and it tested well so I took it to the dealership for warranty service. They had it for almost a month. They determined the quad had a bad EPS unit and swapped it out. Then they told me that the wire for the EPS needed to be updated as they could not program the new unit with the old wire. After the wire came in dealership told me they were still having troubles programming. After another week and a half they told me that they had consulted several times with engineers from Polaris and found a workaround and that the quad was ready for pickup. I contacted Polaris to inquire about the warranty being extended as it was in the shop for a month. They extended the 6 month factory warranty for an additional 3 months. I picked the quad up and the dealership said that the 2018 SP editions were known to have issue a with the EPS units but believed that they had fixed mine. I had it back for around a month and took it out a couple times for short rides and everything seemed fine. I parked it again for a few days and when I went to start it same issues (acting like the battery is no good and won’t start, when I jump start no power steering). Took it back to dealership and waiting to hear what the diagnosis is this time as well as their plan to fix this permanently. Just wondering if anyone else has had issues similar to mine or can give me some advice. Thanks in advance!

      First time using this forum.  Owned a Kawasaki dirt bike once, had no issues.  But I picked up this 4 wheeler at an auction.  They stated it ran, but only needed a battery.  Well I do not believe that was all true.

      Some pictures are attached.  Not sure why, but the whole air filter stuff was removed.  They had some small thing inserted as a make shift air filter.

      I purchased a battery to try this all out.  Waiting to return it and get the proper size, as it was too big for the battery box.  But here is my issue I had while the battery was connected.

      1 - The lights on the steering column did not come on.  Not sure if they work or not.

      2 - The starter solenoid seems to be bad.  I have a new one on order. 

      3 - In the pick, there is another rusted part.  Not sure what that part is or what it is used for.

      4 - What is the 12v rectifier?  square bodied part.

      So when I hooked the battery up.  Pushing the start button did nothing.  Pulling the cord to try and pull start, it turned, but would never fire.  I have put in a new spark plug as well, it looked worn out.  With electric start, I crossed over the posts on the start solenoid, it turned over, but would never fire and start.

      I have read a few other threads and it stated something about needed the neutral light on.  SOmething about a kill switch.

      Any help would be appreciated.

      I'm working on my brothers' 2002 Suzuki Vinson 500 . It sat for a few years before I got into it. I'm concentrating on the carb - I replaced orings, needle, etc. and soaked jets, bowl and anything that I could get off the carb that the solution wouldn't eat. I also removed the tank and flushed it with hot water - it's clean. The gas cap innards rusted away and the tank had a lot of rust and water in it before I cleaned it. I replaced the gas cap and installed a new fuel valve because the screens were broken in the old one. The bike will run but spits and sputters and backfires. If you "open it up" it falls on its face and stalls - but starts right up. Here is a link to an exploded view of the carb: Ohio Honda Yamaha Motorcycle ATV Dealer - J & J Motors - Kawasaki Suzuki Scooter Utility vehicle, parts, accessories, apparel
      Can anyone point me in the direction of the problem? It may still be a "clean carb parts issue" . My problem is that the parts list doesn't identify the parts to a degree that I understand. If you said" look at the pilot jet", I'm not sure which jet that would be....See what I mean? It'll run very good if I remove the air filter and cover the opening with my hand and part my fingers a little for the air to get in. Any help is greatly appreciated.
      Thanks in advance, Jim
