    1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) Runs Bad

    It’s very possible it’s a cheap aftermarket carb. Is there a name on the carb ? A pic would be great. Also keep in mind that you will need a valve spring removal tool to take out the seals. Its cheap enough but not a tool we all use that often thank god !

  5. Thanks, that's a lot better price than the rebuild kit I looking at for $140. Thanks. So, I will check the compression, replace the sp, and get this kit for the valves. I will attach a picture of my carb- It doesn't look like the one the YouTube vid..maybe the former owner put in the wrong carb? I dunno..

    Kazuma 110cc gear issue

    Hi... New to the forum. Just purchased 2 quads. A meerkats... no issues at all woth that. And a lacoste 110cc. The 110 starts fine but having an issue with the gears. When in neutral it a saying 2nd on the indicator. And it won't change properly. Can't seem to get 1st or 2nd or reverse. Had it in what I think was 3rd and it drove but struggled. Can't see anything obvious behind the cover. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

    A manual is at the top of my list,but I need a few more post for that. I've got to get the plastic all off and give it a good cleaning. Put a winch on last weekend and saw there is a lot of dust buildup under the covers from sitting. I'll send some pics soon.
  8. * Topic moved to Kawasaki ATV forum and added ATV info and issue to topic title.

    Need used stock pipe for a Honda 400ex

    I would agree with @Frank Angerano, look on ebay for used. I changed your topic title to be more descriptive of what you are looking for on your Honda 400ex.

    Athena (P400250600300) Top End Gasket Kit https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00PLS6ZXW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_77R6BbVRTF3VG Carb cleaner is great but sometime you have to run a small wire through the jets to be sure they are clear. I also like to blow air through the jets to be sure they are clear. I like to use a piece of wire from a bicycle brake cable, one strand of that. There are also small brush kits for cleaning carburetors on amazon as well.
  11. Can you send a link to amizon or ebay for the valve kit? I'd rather not get the wrong parts.. All the jets are clean- I removed everything I could and cleaned everything with carb cleaner. I will get another sp soon to make sure that works.

    Need used stock pipe for a Honda 400ex

    Look on eBay. It will be a used pipe but most likely in good shape. I’ve picked up a few used exhaust pipes, silencers etc. factory parts that bolted right up. Just make sure of the year and keyword used.

    Honda 400ex rear carrier

    It depends, if the bearings pop right out and the old one is not worn or getting oval then leave it be. Me personally, since your going to have it apart I would replace the whole thing. It’s a smal expense in the overall project and a main part of the drive train. Just make sure it’s an oem replacement part.

    A Jewish 400ex cylinder head?

    I have looked everyplace and cannot find one reason why that star is there! No manufacturers, nothing. So strange.

    1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) Runs Bad

    You are not wrong just not aware. I have attached a pic for you to see. This is an adjustment to the needle hight inside the carb. To high the carb will result in too much fuel being delivered. So take a look and see. Maybe a long shot but def worth looking into. Put the clip at the second to last high spot on the needle and try that. Most common spot is in the middle or second to top. Also Manley sure all the meats are clean. After that I would go with a fresh plug and check the spark. Just to be sure it’s a good clean spark. https://youtu.be/7lnURLsBIHg Sorry make sure all jeys are clean . *** Jets* dam spell check!
  19. I have cleaned and inspected the carb thoroughly three times now- the float is not sticking or anything, and its not adjustable to my knowledge.. correct me if im wrong tho.

    1997 Kawasaki Bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) Runs Bad

    Welcome to Quadcrazy! Nice looking bike. I’m not sure how mechanically inclined you are but if so then I would keep the bike! My guess is since you see blue smoke it’s most likely bad valve seals if the smoke goes away after it’s been running. It’s a valve seal kit you can buy and install. If your not familiar then we can help as well as you tube. If the blue smoke is constant then maybe a piston and rings may be in order. As far as the carb goes and if someone had tinkered with it before then my guess is the needle on the carburetor is set wrong. This can be adjusted very easily by following the throttle cable down to the carburetor and unscrewing the slide from the carburetor and making the adjustment on the needle. Its a clip on the main needle in the carburetor Go to YouTube and you will see how this is done. As well as Quadcrazy helping you along. Looks like a good bike but don’t feel obligated as I have a live for old bikes especially since yours is in such good shape

  22. Well. Blue smoke is burning oil. Could be bad seals. Flooding is a float issue adjust to spec. Sent from my SM-N920V using Tapatalk

    I agree! First things first; oil,lube and filter. Fresh spark plug and some clean petro. Get familiar with the bike and be safe. Good luck and send some pics. We love pics!

    Hisun ATV Line Up

    Hi. This may be a off the wall post but here goes. I'm looking at a career change and I'm thinking about getting into the ATV/UTV business. I'm in Eastern Tennessee and off roading is HUGE in this area. The thing is I know nothing about the business itself. Can I sell? Yes; I did some sales work at one time in my career. Manage? Yes; the past 12 years my job has been technical logistics. And for the most part managing technical people all over the country. But I've never owned or operated my own business. I guess some tips on how to get started would be very helpful. Thanks OH< and BTW, I placed this in the Hisun forum because this is the brand is not represented here much. You have the big name dealers (and much higher prices); want to take the trail less traveled.
  25. Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already. When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there). it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start. I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things. I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap. Enough background on it, the problem is this: It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly. It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold... It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold- does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal. A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression. I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis.. I have never adjusted valves before- the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this. My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top- should i tear down and rebuild the top end? What should i try first? I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed. I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon. Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit- Id rather not sink too much more into this machine.. lol

    Welcome,sounds like a nice quad. I would start with a manual,you can find them here. I would start with fluid check and grease it up.. Good luck and have fun.

    Honda 2013 420 reverse problem

    It could also be a solenoid. All kinds of solenoids go bad all the time. I would be suspect of corrosion first if it goes anywhere near salt H2O that effects a lot more that you think and it will dissolve connections faster than you can shake a stick at it!! Has it ever been wet w/ salt H2O? If it has did you wash it down ASAP? It that's not your issue, you can fix it relatively easy with a multimeter. Get a wiring diagram and then find the connector for your suspected switches, hook up the meter between the 2 pins for the switch you want to check, press the button. If your meter reads 0hms when you press the button its good, anything else and 'd start with that. Start the bike and leave it running (you can only shift into reverse if its running) if you can access the reverse solenoid connector disconnect it and connect your multimeter to the leads(have the meter in 0-24vdc mode) activate reverse, you should have 12-14vdc at the connector. If you do, your solenoid is bad. If not work your way backwards through the wiring diagram till you find the problem.
  28. @joseph how are you making out on this?
