I just bought a very well used bayou 220, I finished replacing the brakes and when I took it for a ride it jumped when put in gear. When I say jump the shifter does not grind but it simply goes into gear and pulls the front tires up. The idle may be slightly high, nothing crazy enough to cause the jump. The other issue I have noticed is the quad stalls when you come to a stop. Clearly this makes me think there is a clutch issue since it is stalling when I come to a stop. I already know the adjustment is under the black cover with the two screws but I am afraid to try to adjust it since it is not slipping. Does anyone have any advice? I changed the oil and filter, the old oil was ok (no metal or anything). I used conventional oil. Could the clutch plates be stuck? I believe the machine sat for some time before I bought it. I am capable of pulling the side cover and inspecting the clutch but I would like to avoid it if not necessary. Thank you
Even when warm and with a lower idle it still stalls when I come to a stop. I feel as though the clutch is not working, it allows the quad to go into gear and thats it. I never had a bayou 220 before but I have ridden an old kawasaki 110, so I understand what it should feel like and this quad jumps when put in gear even with the lower idle and it continues to move. Then it stalls when I come to a stop. You mention replacing the clutch, but it doesn't slip, therefore I don't believe it is bad, but I do think the issue is related to it.
Ok... so tonight I adjusted the clutch as per the directions posted in this forum at least 100 times, I went all the way in, then out then 1/4 turn and locked it. It helped, then I adjusted it again same procedure. Now the quad doesn't jump, insted when I put it in first gear it does not move until I let the shifter back down, then the quad moves... The slightly off idle may cause this, but the issue is the quad still stalls when I stop. My question is does anyone know which way loosens the clutch? I want to move the adjuster in the direction that loosens the clutch to see if that has an effect.
fixing the centrifical clutch is actually fairly simple other than a standard tool set a impact is all u need, pull the side cover, loosen the nut on the centrifical clutch and it slides right off, takes about 30mins of ur time
