Question about kawasaki 2005 Bayou 250

1 Answer

I have a 220 bayou that had been very reliable. Now it starts like new and idles, but as soon as you touch the throttle it acts exactly like the reverse rev limiter acts, except in forward,I tried pushing the over ride button but it doesn't help. It's not acting like a lean misfire, there's no backfire, it sounds exactly like your backing up.

SOURCE: bike backfire

Yes, it could (and probably is) be an air leak. Check to be sure the carb is tight in the intake manifold, and make sure the hot-start isn't loose and is sealing properly. Also make sure all of the exhaust system joints are tight, an air leak in the exhaust will make a four-stroke pop and backfire like an old work truck with no muffler...

SOURCE: kawasaki 300 bayou won't rev up.

No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: I have a 88' Kawasaki Bayou 300. It will start

buy a bottle of gasline anti-freeze. it will absorb any water in your fuel. add a half a bottle now and a half next time you fill the tank. should improve the operation of the engine

Why is our 2005 Bayou 250 rev up when putting into neutral


Have you tried to lower the idle? When an Auto/5speed shiftable transmission is stopped in gear the drivetrain holds it back or loads it down a bit. If you take off a load the idle will rise. Sounds like your idle is too high. Do you have your idle set high to keep it from stalling?

could be lots of things. you'll need to clean the carbs and the whole fuels system too. see if you're getting spark. if the motor sucked in water it could've be done for also.

How to know if the magnetic switch is bad on a 220 bayou


well it tells me that the starter is good and you may need a new relay or it may just be the fuse!! Not sure on that model if that is the only fuse or not, on my 300 bayou there is a fuse at the battery and it could be blown as well. The manual will tell you ALL about the machine and give you troubleshooting tips!!

How do i adjust my clutch on a kawasaki bayou 220


Maybe time for a clutch rebuild. Loosen nut on right cover, hold in place, run screwdriver slotted bolt in until it seats then back it out 1/2 turn, hold screw in place and tighten the nut!
