  1. So I want to put LED headlights in my 99 Bayou 220. The stock headlights have some issue in the connector and they only work some of the time, so I want to replace them with LED light bars. I want to run them off the high beam switch. Which wire would this be?
  2. So I managed to get the gear to line up but for some reason the starter bolts don't line up. Something isn't right.
  3. So, I was planning on adding on LED headlights and wiring them up to the headlight's high beams. I have bulbs but the stupid things are already broken, and the connectors are really bad, so you have to punch the fender to get the one headlight to work. Any issues I would encounter? I'm just going to cut out the left side (from seat, looking toward front) connector and splice in the LED wires.
  4. So I was unable to get the starter in, but I have a bigger issue, I lost the banjo bolt for the oil line. Where could I get another one?
  5. It's the exact same starter that came out. It's not new or anything.
  6. On the starter and in the case. Not that they don't turn, they do, but I can't pull the starter back out to spin the gear.
  7. Ugh, I tried putting the starter in but of course the freaking thing won't go in. I can seem to get the thing the whole way in. Any tips? Also, I lost the banjo bolt for the oil line. Where could I find a new one?
  8. Plan is to repaint the motor, too. My brother bought a can of orange and used that to paint the engine. I'm thinking black for that and the rims. I might see if the nail polish remover method works, which might be the easiest method. I got lucky with the headlight switch, as my brother was originally going to put it on the dash, but he went with shoving it into the gap between the fender and fuel tank; doesn't matter as I'm redoing the LED wiring to be hooked up to the auxillary terminals.
  9. So I want to bring my Bayou 220 back to the original green, and also replace the decals, which have been painted over. My brother painted everything, and I mean everything. The whole quad is painted in this hideous John deere green, with only some of the black parts not being green. I am repainting the dash, but what should I do to restore the original color? The plastic is infused with the color, so I was thinking maybe just using something to attempt to dissolve the outer layer of plastic off to restore the green. What do you guys think?
  10. So yesterday I pulled the side of the case to investigate the broken electric start. I struggled with the pull start cup but got that off, and then struggled with the stator for an hour and a half, but got that off, too. If you look before you can see I mentioned that supposedly the starter was bad? Yeah, that was a lie. It was actually the fact that the starter clutch bolts are broken. Explanation: The starter gear just slips into the starter clutch and free floats on the shaft. The starter clutch is anchored to the stator, which is keyed onto the shaft. When you hit the start button, the starter turns the starter gear, which engages the starter clutch and turns the motor. Basically that means that with my situation is when you hit the starter, it turns the clutch on the shaft, so it does engage but it doesn't engage the shaft.
  11. The clutch issue is an adjustment issue. My brother attempted to adjust it but forgot the second step of loosening it until you feel resistance again. He just tightened it all the way in and tightened the locking nut. One long term plan is to pull all the plastic off and repaint it. My brother repainted it in this awful green.
