1999 Kawasaki Bayou 220 Wiring...what a mess

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone - Need some help.

Got a nice little 220...clean machine. wiring is a mess. I have a diagram however, the one I have has 4 wires coming from the ignition switch not 2 like mine. So, I cant trace wires properly.

There is a white one that runs to the Solenoid, and a brown wire...from the Ignition...I dont know where its supposed to go. Also, on the Solenoid, there are 3 wires..W to ignition, B to start relay and B/Y runs up to the front of the machine...and is not plugged into anything...and there isnt a "Mate" missing it. How do they plug into the 4 open shovels by the 20A fuse?

I'm pretty sure my Lights and start switch/Lights are correct.

Problem I cant get anything...new battery...cant get the start button to work, cant get any power to the lights or switches...so I know something is not grounded or..

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Tom

98 I rebuilt last summer only had 2 wires as well.  This guy has a really decent wiring diagram for a 220 on his video you can screenshot.  I've used it a few times and it's been spot on for me.

Sorry it took so long. I have a 2000 bayou. Just white and brown from the key switch. On mine the white wire comes from the 20A fuse to the keyswitch. Keyswitch turned on routes power through the brown wire to the starter relay.  When the starter button is pushed it closes the circuit to the starter relay and the black wire from the through side of the starter relay is jumped through the engine on /off switch through the red /yellow wire to the CDI which then distributes it to the starter.

      My bear big fires up with the pull start fairly easy. My electric start worked fine but now doesn’t even try. I bought a new battery and the same. The odd thing is, when I start it up at times, the neutral or reverse light will light up at times... depending on if it’s in neutral or reverse of course... wondering if anyone knows where I should replace?

      Riding last week and the machine shut off, towed it back to camp and discovered that the ignition fuse was blown.  Replaced the fuse and as soon as I hit the starter button it blows again. Is there any component that might cause the issue?  I checked the wiring runs and could not find any wire breaks. Using multimeter I see a short on the orange wire from the fuse block.

      Just was given a 220 bayou, turns over and was wired by a crazy mouse on drugs helped by a committee of politicians taking advice from lil green folk from Mars! This is going to be fun. Claimed the stator was bad. My other project is an old lakota, died driving with no spark and has sat for a bit due to building a house n life! In other words,I may need lots of advice!

      Hello everyone! I recently purchased this quad for a mere 300.00 and it is pretty clean for the year. I bought it from a guy who bought it in a storage unit. He didn’t know anything about it. I got it home and noticed it did not have an ignition coil for the spark plug. I bought the ignition coil, a new battery, new CDI box, new starter relay, new safety neutral relay, new carb and so on... I got it to turn over, but when I pull the plug and check for spark I have nothing.. it has a non factory starter button that works when I push it and turns the engine over no matter if the key or stop switch is on or off..not sure what that’s all about, but it does turn over..just no spark at the plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

      Ok, another newbie post here. Checking this stuff out in issues with lost compression. Wondering if anyone can tell by the pics and video of the cam is good, and whether you can see anything visibly with the valves and timing gear.
      Any input would be a great help. Been researching  youtube videos, but just not sure.
      2000 Bayou 220
      Valves
      I could test the exhaust, it looked like it was opening, closing and seating ok, but not sure about the intake.
      Gear

      CAM - looks like some wear on the outer ridges on both in spots, and one lobe to me looks kind of weird, but I don't know.

      Thanks

      Well this is my first time tearing down an ATV. Have done a little work on 2 stroke's in the past, but not much. I'm needing some help. I've got a Bayou that has lost compression. I tested it, and it was like at 40psi. I had already set the timing on it, and it does have spark fuel, etc...
      My question is about the cylinder. To me it looks pretty toasted, but need some help in determining. It is a 2000 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I bought it not running, just to see if I can get it running so it has not ran since I bought it. This question is about the cylinder, and part 2 I have will be about the CAM.
      Any advice / help is greatly appreciated.
      Inside sleeve a line(left line) runs the length that I can feel with my fingernail. The line on the right I can't feel.

       
      Some rust it looks like on these two pictures.
       

      Thanks!
