2003 Kawasaki Bayou 250 No Start

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to quadcrazy looking for help with a 2003 250 Bayou I just bought. It has no fire. When I switch it on I have no netural light or any light. The battery is fine and the starter turns fine. No fire at plug. however when I kick start or use the elactric starter the netural light lightes breifly. I dont have a service manual. So I dont know where any fuses might be located. Does anyone know a site to download a pdf manual? I have gone online and found free pdf manuals for foy two Honda four trax. Thanks any on that can tell where to start of how to check the fire. Thanks Mike

it has been my experience that most manuals that you download are designed for more than 1 model of machine. I recommend spending the money and getting one from the dealer.

I would try changing the plug because it can cometimes be a bad plug and then see if the plug sparks to a ground when you try to start it. There may be a problem with the neural switch and that may also keep it from starting depending on the year. You might be able to adjust the linkage to get the nutural light to turn on. Newer models will start in gear if the brake is locked but it may be a bit too old for that.

Yeah, try holding down the hand brake and see if it starts. I used to have a 2002 Kawasaki Bayou and I believe you could do that.

Hello Thanks for your respones. The starter will not turn the motor over from the starter button. When I switch on the key I get nor netural light at all. I can take a screwdriver and make the starter turn the motor by jumping the starter relay. Wher I do this the nutural light will light while the motor is trying to start. However I have no fire at the plug. . Where is the nutural switch? I have been told there may not fire due to the CDI. Thanks to anyone who can futher give me some advice.

The battery is fine.....how old is it? How do you know it is fine? On my even older Bayou, it will not run with a bad battery, so if possible, try a different one.

      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!

      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

      Does anyone have a redcat 250 or falcon 250cc that they can share where the two vacuum lines on the carburetor that you run antifreeze through I honestly have no idea where the lines are suppose to go to circulate the antifreeze. 
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Recently I noticed gas leaking from under the gas tank on my 2005 250 2x4. As I looked closer it appears to be leaking from the shut off valve under the tank. It's the valve with the handle that can be turned to open, close or reserve. Can this part be replaced? Thank you.

      Just bought (Tue. evening) an '89 Suzuki 250 4wd that has been sitting out the last 5 yrs. It's complete, including the shift knobs, battery cover, and headlights. It has the optional cooling fan on it (probly stuck - didn't check), and the engine isn't locked up. Plastic looks good and isnt cracked. Racks aren't bent up. Shift lever works, the foot brake moves (needs oil - have to pull it up by hand), and there's black oil and no water in the engine sight glass. Guy was asking $125 and gladly took $100 for it. Anxious to get started on bringing it back to life. Been wanting one of these for years. As soon as I can get to it (working on a junky "Jackel" right now - Chinese Yamaha Timberwolf). I'm going to pull the tank off it and clean it, clean & possibly rebuild carb, put in new plug, and a battery, then see what happens. If nothing, will keep going until it runs. Feel free to respond if you want to, I'm mainly just excited and wanted to tell somebody.

      I just bought two 1985 TRX250's from my father-in-law. One runs great, the other not so much. The one is having issues with the shifter. The shifter seems to be resting lower than normal. When I press the shifter downward, it just pops back up. Any thougjts as to what the issue might be?
