hey guys new to the forum, just picked up a bayou 220 from a friend. (year is early 90s i wish i knew exactly but hey for $170 you cant complain) got it home hooked up jumper cables to it (battery is shot) and it fired up!! ran great no ticks taps or nothing. COOL ok so cleaned out the carb and got some other stuff done to it now the problem. when it fires up it idles high, try to adjust the idle down and it raises the idle, try adjusting the idle up and it goes down. it acts like its trying to bog down when i hit the gas then it opens up but if i try to let it idle high it will come down and finally die. anbody have any sugestions? im kind new to the whole owning a quad thing so any advice will help.:D thanks guys

anyone with any advice would be awesome, i just ordered a complete rebuild kit and i ordered a new choke cable because the choke cable is messed up but if anyone else has any ideas that would be greatly appreciated

Buy a service manual first,then rebuild/clean the carbs.I had to refer back to the manual for a no start problem when I thought the starter solenoid went bad - turns out the starter relay was actually the problem - without a manual,I'd be just guessing.
