  1. Past hour
  2. I did a little searching on your carb. The third line on the carb is a vacuum line to create the pulses to drive the pump. I found a youtube video on rejetting your carb that you might want to watch .. He points out the fuel pump vacuum line connection in it .

    It’s a bitch but two things have to happen. 1. You must have the air filter on as if the bike was ready to ride. 2. You have to make up a small screw driver to get in to the adjustment spot. I’ve done it I bought a flex driver which is a small flexibile shaft screwdriver. Or make one up.

    *well- nobody has explained to me what I'm looking for when I adjust the carb

    ok so I have never heard this before... haha nobody has ever explained to me HOW to adjust a carb on a bike yet. Thanks! Also, how do you adjust the air screw while the carb is on the bike? I have never been able to do that since the screw comes out the bottom of the carb. but thanks! I knew the engine wont run right if the ratio is off, but I did not know that it would affect rpm....just never put 2 and 2 together

    It’s a 500 so right out of the gate you know 1-3/4 will be the minimum. Start there and adjust out. Keep the idle as lows as possable to keep the bike running. As you adjust the fuel/air mixture screw the bike will rev up as you get better. While this is going on you will have to lower the idle. Keep adjusting until the highest point of reving. That means at some point the engine will not continue to rev higher but start to act up. Once you hit that point you have passed the sweet spot. Back it down and make final adjustments. The highest revs mean the bike is getting the most out of fuel and air.

    new axle is in, new pod is in, everything works good......except the fuel pump. I think @davefrombc is correct about the vacuum line. I think I'm going to bypass it like he suggested (thanks for that suggestion btw!!) I still dont know what tha carb should be adjusted... But first things first... need fuel to the carb haha

    Your opinion on KYMCO atv?

    There is a download of the service manual in the forum's downloads section .

    Your opinion on KYMCO atv?

    Check plug for spark and the carb for fuel. Seafoam won't clean out a plugged jet if that turns out to be the problem. You'd have to take the carb off and clean it thoroughly. No spark is harder to chase down. First check the electrical harness for any loose or corroded/ broken connections.If still no go you'll need a service manual to get the specs on the components , or if you have access to compatible ones to swap out one at time to find the faulty one.

    Picked this up at the end of October (2014). Ran well up till a couple days ago and now won't start. Turns over, but won't catch. It's been a really cold winter. Put some seafoam in but that didnt seem to help. Any thoughts? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

    ok thanks! Do you think 30w small engine oil would do ok? And if not, why not

    Btw, bayou is for officially for sale for $800 first come first serve lol if you read this thread, you know all of it's history as far as I've owned it... massage me privately if interested. I'm thinking the ignition coil is going bad maybe causing a weak spark and that was also causing it to run rich (and after riding the 220, I noticed its a little more sluggish is throwing the power down)

    Oil drain plugs quadzilla 2008 320 e

    Ok Mr Gary we need to figure this out. I know @Ajmboy is a Suzuki guy. Maybe he has some input. But I would think there has to be a drain plug. Have you checked the lower sides of the case ? Maybe instead of the bottom ?

    Oil drain plugs quadzilla 2008 320 e

    The only other thing I can think of is it has to be pumped out. But I doubt that. Is there a fill plug for that tranny?

    That transmission plug should have a hex head flush type drain plug and it should be on the bottom same side as the fill cap. Some of the engines on other manufacturers bikes had the gear boxes built right into the engine where the engine oil was also the gear box oil. Both pros and cons . I believe your bike has a separate transmission, locate the fill cap and look under the bike in the same area.

    Bayou 220 running issue

    Is the carb that beat up that it’s byond repair? A valve adjustment would prob help for other reasons but not this problem. The timing is pretty straight forward as your 300 is. Cam sprocket and T mark on the flywheel. Double check that the choke is not stuck. And also check for good spark and a fresh plug. Also my 220 ran best on a 1-1/2 turns out on the air fuel mixture screw.

    That is a great question. It could be that your spark is breaking down at some point and soaking the plug because no or poor spark. Definitely a good possibility. @06kfx440

    Bayou 220 running issue

    got that 220 I'm 'servicing'.......... well it turned into a guts and oil job.... I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm. also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust) I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering) I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...? Maybe a factor? What should the clearance be on the valves? How should I check the timing on this bike? (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)
