Question about 2000 kawasaki KLX 300

1 Answer

300 Bayou stops running - sometimes fails to start

Sometimes my 4 wheeler stops running after just a couple of minutes. It seems to just intermittantly stop firing. I have replaced the CDI Module and Rectifier (that I thought was the problem) and replaced the spark plug. What else should I check?

2006 kawasakin bayou 4 wheeler won't idle

If the bike idles when you appy a little choke you may have a clogged carburator. The fuel that we get now is very unstable and gums up very quickly. I would suggest cleaning the carburator and flushing the fuel out of the fuel tank. the carb is very intricalte and should be serviced by a qualified technician.
I hope that this helps,
