I’m looking for any member that may be familiar with the neutral safety switch on this bike.
I picked up a bayou 220 that I found sitting in a shed. Nice looking bike the guy said it would not start one day and put it away and never touched it again.
So it turns out the neutral safety switch is bad. I jumped it out and the bike fired up and runs good.
I’m more then capable of the work in changing it but this thing is buried pretty good. I’m curious if anyone has done the switch replacement before?
I attached some pics to see.
picture 1 is the side view you can see the green and red wires going into the cover.
Pic 2 shows looking down on the drive shaft coming out of that cover. That is not a simple cover you just pull off.
Im wondering how deep and how much shit has to come off like the drive shaft etc for this switch to be replaced.
So if any of the QC members have done this switch I’m looking for any input with regard to changing it.
This is a strange question maybe. I just finished cleaning my old barn find Suzuki. I think it's a 1985. LT230 shaft drive. Started it up and other than making some carb adjustments (well, I think that's all I have to do) it runs fine.
But as I drove it around the yard I noticed that it is hard to steer. The front tires seem like they are barely touching the ground! The handle bar moves fine and the wheels turn, but the tires don't grip the grass.
When I lean forward as far as I can the tires actually bite into the grass and turn the bike. When I sit on the bike it just plows straight ahead.
Has anyone seem anything like this?
I wonder if the back tires are too small, causing the bike to lean backwards. Does anyone have the specs on what size tires I should have?
Thanks for any help provided...

Has anybody on here installed a winch on a 2003 Magnum 2x4? I am using a Cycle Country adapter plate (only one I could find), but am having a bit of trouble getting it all to fit properly, and am looking for someone that may have done this install and/or may have some pics of the installation.
My mother has just developed a fairly serious case of sciatica, which is a condition where you have some serious leg pain as the result of a pinched sciatic nerve. One of the exercises she does in physical therapy is simply the therapist holding onto her foot and pulling away from her hips as she lays on her back on a table. To replicate this exercise at home they have recommended an inversion table (where you turn upside down and hang from your feet), but since she's not too keen on this idea I'm trying to figure out how to replicate this exercise...which is where the idea of a remotely operated winch comes in.
I don't really have a wide range of knowledge when it comes to what equipment is out there that can help me accomplish this goal, but I'm not too shabby at designing things and since I just installed a superwinch on my grizz this is the first idea I've come up with.
Basically I'm imagining using some kind of winch whose rope would be worked through a pulley system that would end attached to a shoe which Mom would put on, lie down and use the remote switch to gently stretch the leg.
- Winch (if an ATV winch) would be powered by a 12v car battery hooked up to a trickle charger
- Safety mechanisms would include...
- a light switch dimmer inline between the 12v battery and the winch so speed can be adjusted.
- possibly using one of those stretchy rubber exercise resistance bands in the line segment to regulate and ease the pulling
- a remote power cut off switch paired with the remote 'in/out' switch
Honestly I could just go ahead and make this system myself, and I'm fairly sure it would work, but I thought I'd bounce this idea off a mechanically minded community to see if there are any ideas how I could improve on the design.
Since I'm only familiar with ATV winches at this point that's what I've imagined using. But if anyone is aware of a 110v based winch that would be more appropriate, that would surely help in simplifying powering the system since it'll be located indoors. Only requirement for the winch would be that it would need both an in and out function operated by a remote switch. And since the winch would only need to pull between 10-20 lbs it wouldn't need to be nearly as beefy as the ATV type.
Sorry for the long write up here but I'm certainly glad for your time and open to your opinions and suggestions.
Putting in a SW Terra 35 and I've decided the crimp I'm looking at here isn't something I can reproduce so I need to figure out who to take this wire to get the end put back on after I get it shortened to where I need it. Never having delt with wires this big I have no idea who I could go to just locally to get this done. What kind of (electrical?) business would deal with stuff like this?
Just got my first ATV, a '11 700 Grizz and planning on doing some trail riding soon. First piece of equipment I'm adding is a winch and I'm needing some suggestions for something that would be good for my kind of riding but comes at a decent price. Usually I try to get quality stuff (Warn) but since I'm needing to conserve denero right now I figure this winch is something that (at least for me) doesn't have to be crazy great/expensive. Although I'd still like to get something that's decent quality and can pull well, in my middle age I hardly think I'll be voluntarily launching into any terrain that has the potential to get me too stuck...thus I doubt I'll be using the winch that often.
Anybody have a suggestion for a model that's decent quality for around say $300 bucks? Doesn't have to be built to be used time after time but quality does still count.
