  1. I have always used the Husky 1 1/4in. So far in over a year none have broken and two hold my quad no problem on the trailer. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-1-1-4-in-x-16-ft-Ratchet-Tie-Down-4-Pack-FH0836/206802384 Daniel
  2. I will definitely know more once I pick it up, which right now should happen weekend after next if everything goes according to plan. The coworker that is giving this away is pretty clueless when it comes to machinery so who knows what it really is. All I know that it no longer wants to starts, which was four years ago... since then it just sat in the garage collecting dust. Daniel
  3. Here are my two cents... on my Yahama Raptor 700R, when I bought it it has the twist throttle and I changed it to thumb very quickly. For me if I opened the throttle it would push me back slightly in the seat which would in turn open the throttle even more... that would amplify the more I opened the throttle but this quad is also a 700cc. With thumb in the same situation (pushed back in the seat) it would let up on the throttle, safer for me at least. At the same token my thumb does get tired quickly and a twist throttle is more comfortable, both have their pluses and minuses. Daniel
  4. I have one 2006 Yamaha Raptor 700R (that is currently for sale) and will soon have a 99 Bayou 220 that I am hoping to rebuild and use around the property. Maybe even tow a small things or two with it.
  5. Pretty much any toy that I have purchased needed something fixed on it, seems that I enjoy the rebuild more than the ride itself lol. --Daniel
  6. I have been using Rocky Mountain ATV, prices seem fair and delivery is quick.
  7. For me I like tinkering with off road toys, and about a couple of years ago bought a non running Yamaha Raptor 700R which I got to run. Now I am going to be picking up soon a free 99 Bayou 200 which I am hoping to get running as well.
  8. I am still new to the Bayou 220, but I was thinking of LEDs as well. What kind of wattage is OK to draw for a light bar? I have not looked into it too closely but wanted to make sure the LED bar did not draw too much juice. Thanks.
  9. Thank you, for the price of free I could not say no to this. I just hope the wiring is salvageable and it won't take too much $$$ to get it going. Finding parts for a 99 is getting hard, Rocky Mountain ATV has some things but this will definitely be an adventure. Thanks.
  10. Hello all, wanted to sign up for this site as I am sure I will have lots of questions soon. One of my coworkers has given me a free Bayou 220 that does not run, I was told it needs a new wiring harness, however I cannot confirm any of that yet. Next weekend I am going to drive up to the place and pick it up and get some hands on but right now trying to find some service manuals so that I can trace and find out what is going on. My plan is if I can get it to run to do a full restoration and use it to putt around the trails around my house. I have some experience with small engines, currently have six mini bikes and a buggy with a GY6 motor that I brought back to life and I am hoping I can do that same with this. Really hoping the Bayou has good compression and it's only a electrical problem. In the mean time I am going to be reading this forum to learn as much as I can and hopefully find a service manual. I have attached the only pic I have of it so far. Thanks! Daniel
