1985 Kawasaki Bayou 185 - Questions


Recommended Posts

Got me a little 85 kLF 185 to putt around on with the kiddos. It's in great shape. I was just going to change the oil and was wondering if there is an oil filter or anything and where to find it to replace/clean it. If anyone has a pdf download of the shop manual, that would be nice.

Also, the front left tire (facing it from the front, not riding) tilts in both vertically and horizontally a little. How do I go about re-aligning that tire up?

Thanks in advance!

Oh ok. On my ATC200s the screen is behind a spring under the drain cap. There isn't some other component that needs cleaning as well? A rotor filter or something? Found a portion of the owner's manual and service online. So only thing it says is oil and screen.

Yeah the previous owner had a DPR7EA (9?) in there. Calls for D8EA or DR9EA... So I guess I'll use the 8. Also, the air filter was completely rotted. So I'll be swinging by the parts store to get another. Can you just use Bearing Grease to make the seal between the carb and the filter cage?
