    I recently got a Kawasaki Bayou 220 for deer hunting/scouting. It runs great, although I have to pull start it, but starts first pull. The lights work, only when it's running.

  16. 1998 Bayou for $550 - should I buy it?

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Someone in my area is selling a 1995 Bayou 220 for $550. It needs a battery, front brakes, a seat, and apparently it's missing the bolts that mount the exhaust to the engine, so the bike runs loud at the moment. Is $550 worth having to fix all that? The plastics are in ok condition for a 95 and...
