    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I have a 1988 Kawasaki Bayou KLF220A. After countless hours of troubleshooting, I finally got it to run. I had it working beautifully with the electric start, but my headlights were not working. I started to track down where the wires went bad for the headlights, and in the process, I...

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Recently got this Brute and it wont start up:mad: First and only thing Ive done is buy a new battery. She hasn't been cranked on for about 2-3 years so obviously she wasn't going to start up right off the back:eek:. I'm no expert at this, I just want to know which parts usually always go bad...
  5. Bayou 220 will idle but dies with fuel

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Forum, It seems like a lot of individuals experience this but no one ever completes the thread with a fix. I have a early 90's (1994 maybe) Bayou 220 that has not run for 2 yrs. Acts the same today as it did then. As of today I have rebuilt the carb (cleaned and new injectors, needle...

  9. 96 Prairie 400 won't start, electrical issue?

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    It will start sometimes, but seems random. Here's what it does. Battery is fully charged and new. I just got the atv so I assume it has to be in nuetral to start. When in nuetral, turn on key and a round relay or something next to battery clicks once. Push start buttom, nothing. (if you turn on...
