1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4 - Service Manual


Recommended Posts

Hey guy and gals

I'm a new-be here an just need a lot of help

So please forgive me if I'm doing this wrong!

First off My name is Rob and thanks for having me here you'll.

I just acquired a 1997 farm hand bayou 300 4x4 that is in need of a lot of TLC I traded the fella even up for and old Yamaha street bike I had about $850 into that ran good and did not leak or burn oil but still needed many minor things like brake worked seat and so on

So about the Bayou-it runs starts right up and all but is missing some things like the front and rear racks clutch lever and small plastic cover in front of handle bars

My issue is that the fella said he put new piston & rings in it about a week ago and checked out the clutches like I said it runs and I know I should have taken more time to check everything out so when I got it home I found out there was no air breather and I can't see how one would have even fit on there the way the carb is so close to the inner frame rail under the seat on it and it started leaking oil pretty bad from the clutch cover (it was clean oil though light in color)

The quad is not bad lookin and I can weld up some racks for it but I really need a service manual for this old work horse!!!!! I have no issue following directions other than sometimes giving my own creative touches LOL

ANY HELP WOULD BE SO MUCH APPRECIATED

THANK YOU AND HAVE A BLESSED DAY

ROB

I just bought a 1999 Kawasaki Bayou and it won't fire but one time then stop. I'm needing to see the wiring diagram to try and troubleshoot this problem. My hope is that this manual will have enough information to work with. I'll post again once I have reviewed it. Thank you so much for posting this file.The vehicle is old and finding good info other than the owner's manual has been difficult. God bless you!

      I just bought a 91 and when I went to change the oil in the rear diff it had water in it (milky oil). There are no leaks in the seals so I think it's coming in the vent tube. Thing is I can't find it. Anyone know where it is. 
       
      Thanks

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?

      Hello everyone, i have 2000 Polaris Trail Blazer 300 I’ve been stumped on for weeks. I’m having a lot of issues starting the quad. I cleaned the carb spotless because I thought it was a carb issue and bought a new fuel line because it wasn’t getting fuel. The carb gets fuel perfectly fine now but it won’t start. The spark plug I a little worn out but it’s good enough for just one start. The only time it does “start” is when I spray starter fluid into the carb. But it never stays on. It’ll start for a bout a second then just die out immediately even if you’re giving it some throttle and the choke is on. I have no clue what I should do. If you need more information, have questions, or have any slight idea what the issue would be and how I could resolve it. Please reply ASAP. Thank you.

      1700 miles on the machine, all trail riding.   Second ride of the day and I get an overhead light, shut it down, let fan run, fan shuts off, light still on, ride back to camp, clean radiator, let machine cool for a couple hours.  Start up, head over to the campgrounds, ride for 5 minutes or less, overheat light comes back on and the machine blows the ignition fuse.  Tow it back, replace fuse, turn on key, fuse blows immediately.  I've ran all the wires, no mouse chews or rubbing, etc.     Does the KingQuad have a thermal protection system that would explain this?

      good day everyone, 
                        new to this page. I need help with my 1994 fourtrax 300 4x4. the bike stop sparking for some odd reason so no big deal I order a new ignition coil, that was not it so I order a new cdi box. now I get sparks. by now the battery is low from cranking so much, so I boost it with the truck. the bike as the hardest time to start and when it does it runs rough, bogging, backfire,..., reverse light is on even if im not in reverse but in neutral. and the reverse light gets briter as I rev the bike.i clean the carb twice, remove the reverse sensor and check the ohm, reading 0.0 to 0.9. any idea, I need to get this bike going asap. thanks for your time

      Hello,
      I have read many forum topics on this matter but have never found a similar problem. So i bought a cheap ass quad thats got all sorts of parts on it. It's a 1997(if you look the date on frame) Kawasaki KLF(Bayou) 300 EUROPEAN Model (atleast I think, since I'm from Europe), the engine is 1988 if I'm not mistaken and the CDI is 1995.-2006. ( 21119-1447, 6pin ). My problem is that I don't have spark. I would diagnose the issue but connectors from CDI to wiring harness have almost all different colors and I'm not sure if they are connected correctly (pictures below). Pickup coil is putting out around 400 ohms and is pulsing. CDI is being fed 12v by one y/r wire that is coming to connector and with 12v to one gray wire which is coming from ignition switch ( quad actually doesn't have ignition switch so I'm not sure if gray should be supplying power or not). Stator looks good cause when crancking all three yellow wires put out around 5v AC. Neutral light is also on which means the switch should be ok, if it even matters. I know it's not the ignition coil since I get no power nor any kind of pulsing to G/W wire that is coming to it ( and I even put another one on there just to check an it ended with the same result). I'm nowhere near proffesional around this type of stuff so any help would be amazing.
