  1. Sorry for my confused answer. Yes, the Chinese one has the warmer. My KLF is not wired for it. I can probably handle doing that. This replacement has been perfect to this point. Runs well at all speeds and idles like a champ.
  2. Yep, it has the warmer built in. I'll have to wire it to use the warmer. OEM was out of my price range when I need it. That is a target project though. Thanks for the input.
  3. Cool mornings here (high 50's -mid 60's). The '02 300 Bayou has a replacement Chinese Carb that starts first or second hit at temps over 75 or so. It wont start in the cool mornings. Choke at any position, Throttle positions, turning over with the compression relief open a few turns, grinding for 20-30 secs, None helps. Temp goes up, NO Problem. Ideas?
  4. I installed a new China made carb months ago. So far all is well. This carb has a heater, while the original did notI never considered hooking it up. Here in far N. Ga, 0 deg. is about the coldest it normally gets in a bad winter. Should I bother hooking the heater up and will it need a sensor or just an off/on toggle switch? Totally new subject to me.
  5. Found these listed on E-by. .ebay.com/itm/Bevinsee-P15D-H6M-LED-Headlight-Bulb-For-Kawasaki-ATV-KLF220-300-KFX400-KVF300/192683220229 tecoparts FREE Standard SpeedPAK from China/Hong Kong/Taiwan | See details See details about international shipping here. help icon for Shipping - opens a layer Item location: Guangzhou, China I'll do some looking at you-tube and at parts elsewhere . Like I said these are out of my league so it's a whole new learning curve.
  6. Bevinsee P15D H6M LED Headlight Bulb For Kawasaki ATV KLF220 300 KFX400 KVF300 I'm looking at replacing the headlamps on my 2001 KLF 300. These LEDs are out of my experience range. Supposedly they are "plug and play". What problems am I not aware of? Other controllers, ballast? Thanks, Cavry.
  7. I over torqued the end bolt by a few lbs but that seems to have solved the problem. NO problems lately. Thanks for the input.
  8. I was thinking along those lines. The roller bearing is fine. I used a rubber mallet to seat the alternator before reassembling and then used a cross bar in the pull starter disc and torqued the end bolt to 60 ft/lbs this time. Thankfully, timing hasn't slipped during any of the events. Hoping this solves the problem. Thanks for your input. Cavry
  9. I have replaced the Alternator keystock 3 times in several weeks. the engine cranks instantly, idles well and runs smoothly for 30or 40 starts. Then suddenly when I go start it again, it won't start Each time the key has been sheared. The replacement fits the shaft and alternator firmly and I have not noticed any backfires. Ideas? Suggestions? Cavry
  10. OK, information I found on Utube says the Torque Limiter is like a one-way ratchet to prevent backfires from stripping the splines on the starter shaft.
  11. I haa problem with the controller on a Harbor Freight winch. The control box went out a while back. It has a manual switch on the handle-bar and a plug in for a remote that I never purchased. I replaced the solenoids and it worked a couple of times and is dead again. Is there a universal replacement that anyone has used and would use again? Remote control or manual /remote combo, no preference.
  12. Finally! I am back to a limited .degree. Family member medical condition is under control. I have the bayou running well after 3 days of effort getting everything back together and locating a few missing bolts The torque limiter is inside the left alternator housing on the end of the starter shaft. I'm not exactly sure of the mechanical function and I haven't cut one apart yet to see. I'll be in and out of here for a while. I am facing lumbar spinal surgery. 2 vertebrae are deteriorated and are misaligned badly and there is no disc between 4, all bone on bone. Not sure what the future holds. No complaints, and I'll survive well, it just may take a while.
  13. poker10w, I'm glad yours is working for you. Just sayin' They can be bad. In think that one just had shoddy gears to start.
  14. I set up a HF winch on my Bayou 4 years ago. Just thumb button control. The planetary locked up the 4th time I tried to use it. Nothing heavier ever than pulling another shut down ATV out of a creek. I took it apart and realigned every thing, put it back on the Bayou and free-wheeled 30 Ft. of cable out to a tree and hit the switch, half way back in it locked up again. No Satisfaction from HF. Never again will I buy one from them.
