  1. Not a 2 Stroke but sure is fun, Would post more pics but looks like 2 pics i posted used up all my allowance. Seems can only upload couple of pics now says all files are too large. Theres a lot of 3 wheelers out there. The nicer ones the people think they are gold and sell for more than when they are new. The cheap ones are pretty much destroyed and or missing ungettable parts so keep an eye out and you will find one. Az
  2. Checked their website, dont have it. Thanks for the reply though. Az
  3. Well body off, cleaned good, painted, drained gas tank, rebuilt carb installed fuel pump, replaced battery, painted the frame and motor. installed front wheel, Got it to fire up. Lots of power for a 250, I live on 2.5 acres, havent got it out of 3rd yet, pretty fast. If not careful will end up on 2 wheels, no wonder they dont make anymore lol. It is missing front plastic which covers frame, Any ideas where to find some. Az
  4. Thought this would be fun, 1985 Prairie, live clutch 250 was pretty rough, carb was in pieces and in a baggie hanging from cyl head. Gas smelled like an old dinosaur. How could i go wrong. It actually came with xtra set of wheels with brand new slicks for the donut fun!
  5. I couldnt open it also. Nice work.
  6. using the gm hei module are you going to get any timing advance? probably stall or backfire, why not use proper cdi? Keep us informed Az
  7. If it backfires on deceleration its usually rich, can try adjusting carb, sometimes changing exhaust requires a little re jetting, Az
  8. I almost did the same thing, have a monster gear reduction drill and was drilling a 3/4 hole for the hitch, well the bit grabbed, slammed my fist into the sharp side of the exhaust pipe and almost dislocated my shoulder. ended up with a bloody hand and a real sore shoulder. Gotta watch those heavy drills
  9. All the harness repairs i do i use 14 gauge, if i was making a harness from scratch i would probably use 12 gauge. I just redid a bayou 220 with melted wiring, missing the starter relay, the ign relay mostly all wiring was gone was just left with 5 strands of wire out of the main harness, Just get a diagram take your time. I used a sharpie to hi light the circuits i was working on, makes it a little easier. Good luck Az
  10. I would bypass the kill switch just to rule that out. Also what readings you get on the pick up coil? With the kill switch bypassed do you get a pulse from the p/u coil? That would be my next tests. Good luck, Az
  11. I have just finished dealing with major wiring problems on a bayou 300 and 220 I know the pain Az
  12. I usually end up paying 35 or more for seat covers, hopefully the info from Ajmboy will pay off lol. I mostly fix the atvs then flip them so the least i spend the cheaper i can sell it. Got to keep the margins in order so every penny helps.
  13. For oil i have been using https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b/masterpro-oils-4342/more-powersport-30734/atv---motorcycle-chemicals-25144/motor-oil---motorcyclepowersports-19237/c762ea16fffc/masterpro-conventional-small-engine-oil-10w-30-48-ounce/80019/4495703?q=atv+oil&pos=15 Except the oil is usually a synthetic blend. Guess there is no cheap oil these days.
  14. Sounds like most the ones i end up with. Part of the fun and or headaches!
  15. Just a couple of things since i get various atvs. They always need seat cover and always need oil and other minor items. My question is Do you buy any specific motor oil for them, i heard you must get atv oil or will mess up the clutch. Not sure if correct but didnt want to find out hard way. Is there a cheaper oil or can you use regular motor oil? Next they always need a new seat cover, any good places to buy bulk or cheap vinyl to re do the seats with out spending 30-50 dollars on a specific cover? whats you go to places for parts, i use amazon, ebay any others that offer a good deal? that goes for hard parts or just cables and or clips, wiring, bolts etc no wrong answer here. always looking for new ways to find parts for the older atvs. TIA Az
  16. Well update on charging, received new part from other seller and is now charging. Just need battery and clean it all up. Thanks for the replys Az
  17. Where did you find that connector and the terminals? Gotta link. Thanks
  18. wiring is right, i went ahead and sent the regulator back and bought from different maker. see it around monday. Crossing my fingers. Az
  19. Back again with another headache, maybe you guys can help me out. Picked up a 87 Bayou 300 not running of course, all stator wires melted on the motor and also no spark. I checked the pick up coil ohmed out good. traced the wires and led to no cdi box, yes missing. So ordered it and while waited fixed the stator wires, had to wire direct to harness. Get the cdi installed and after a lot of other things started it up. Battery dead so used a batt charger to start it. Now when i shut off the charger the motor died. So i check charging voltage...nada. I see voltage regulator is old and catalist leaking so i replaced it. Same thing no charge. I check stator and no voltage with it unpluged from harness while running. Soooooo i replace stator. Now Stator wires have 23v and up to over 50v at higher rpms. So i know its charging now. Connect everything back up and no charge voltage at battery! Still dies when i shut off charger. All 3 yellow stator wires have good voltage, checked harness from stator to regulator and is good. The white wire has battery voltage at regulator, the brown wire has battery voltage at regulator when key on. The Black/yellow stripe has good ground. I get 3 volts at battery when i shut off charger. If i connect old regulator i get 7 volts when i shut off charger. Do i have a defective new regulator? Im stumped. when i figure this one out i have a big wiring problem on another one ill let you in on. Az
  20. Dang you live in the deep city, how you find places to ride atv there? Nice pics though. Az
  21. You might want to check compression first and go from there
  22. Can i use a regular Relay to replace the missing ignition circuit relay (round one) if so what have you used? Needs 4 wires. The oem relay is about 45 bucks. Thanks Az
  23. DId the drive a few weeks ago and picked up another 220 Bayou, Lol same story, doesnt know when it last run, at least 5 yrs. Took both of us everything we had to get it up the ramps. Figured out later all brakes were locked up and cables frozen. The motor isnt locked, felt like decent compression on the pull start. Now all and i do mean all the wiring is destroyed, cut, burned, twisted and parts missing. Managed to tear it apart pressure wash it and cut out the wiring to see what i had, also is missing the starter circuit relay. I have figured out the wires to the Voltage regulator, I think i figures out the wires to the dash lights (which the whole assembly is missing) Still have to figure out the 2 wires coming out of the neutral safety switch where they go and 7 other wires coming out of the main harness. i figure 4 of them probably go to the missing starter circuit relay. The rest might go to the rear lights and something else. Would post pictures but not letting me post them saying they are too large? How are you guys posting pics now
  24. Havent posted in a while, seems i am an essential and have been pretty busy/ Any way finishing up on the 250. Ended up replacing the carb, The original one ran rich no matter what i did. Also had to replace brake cables, master cyl. Still needs tires but gonna let it sit for now. Ill throw some pics up later. Az
  25. Figured it out a while back, was a 250
