Default Bayou 220 Cheap Carb.

Hey, I'm looking for a carb for my bayou 220. i dont know what bore or brand is best for my bike. I need a cheap replacement exhaust also. Im not looking for performance Im looking to make my wheeler run. As of right now, it runs for five minuets perfectly, but then dies and wont start up for another five minuets. Ive been through all the lines and valves and Ive given up. Ideas? I'm hoping a new carb solves my problems.

Try taking the carb apart and clean real good, noting how it comes apart. Soak it, spray it out withcarb cleaner careful not to get any on your rubber diaphram etc. Blow it out godd and try again, maybe a rebuild kit is in order as well. You can search for atv carb cleaning and get all kinds of ideas, here is one way. All are basically the same. Hope this helps!!

When the bayou dies, have you check if the spark plug have electricity? Have you check the electrical parts? like the ignition coil?

Default Well...

Yeah I've cleaned every nook and cranny of the carb, and if it runs fine for five minuets and dies, why would it be electrical? After it dies and it sits for a while it stars right back up, and will run for another five minuets. i dont see how that could be electrical?

Sounds electrical to me, how would it be fuel? It doesnt take 5 minutes for the carb bowl to fill up.

When it expands from heat, then he open, when it colds goes in contact, some times it could be.
It's easy, unplug the spark plug and try to see if there is spark when it dies.
Also have you check the cap of the fuel tank, when it dies, open the cap you hear like vacum sound? it could be clogged .
Maybe it could be.

but seriously, the fuel cap is another thing to check. I had a friend that had the same issue, stalling out after a few minutes, he would check the gas, then it would fire up and run another 5 minutes.... until it pulled vacuum on the tank and quit flowing. one way to check is right after it shuts off loosen the drain screw on the carb and see if fuel flows from the overflow line.
