Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4 - It Runs !!

Recommended Posts

Ok, I have an earlier thread but I thought id start a new one since things have changed. To my amazement amy Kawasaki 300 started on the first pull this morning and has everytime now. It runs and shifts out just like it should. Its making a not so good knocking sound from the right side cover tho. I pulled out my stethoscope(prybar) Im really started to question if the clutch berring is coming apart. If I ride this thing and it completely goes will it destroy the engine? How hard is it to replace this berring? Is there anything else in that area of the engine that tends to fail and make a knocking noise? It sounds like its coming from the cover where is says Kawasaki. Thanks for the help.

Well. It makes no noise for the first 2 minutes, than gradually starts. I found that the noise changes tones when I shift out to 1st and back into neutral. The engine is strong! Ive read on some other forums about the clutch bearing going out and sounding like a knock. Next I guess I will remove the cover and inspect it. I will let you know what I see. I know the history of the quad and its never been rode hard, but it has sat for 2 years so I bought it with the intention of working out a few bugs. Im not ready to hear that it needs a crankshaft yet tho
