  1. 1990 Bayou 220

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Hello. New to this forum but love forums in general. Just bought a 1990 Bayou 220 and it doesn't run. Got it for almost nothing and the engine is not seized. I can turn it over with the pull cord. Threw in a new battery today but I get nothing. No lights, no sounds, nothing at all. Any tips...
