SOURCE: wont run for more then 10 sec
If you can do your own work, try some things if its dies you ether loseing fuel pres, injector control, or spark........ the fuel pres is easyest to ck, just stick a gauge between the pump and the rail, should be 42-43lbs, on the spark pull a coil stick and put an extra plug in it and fire up the bike be careful doing this is case of fuel leaks under tank, if the bike quits and you try to start it and you still got spark this may be ok, this is a bit more difficult, you have to ck the plug connections at the coil sticks, if you ck in a service manual each coil has two wires going to it one is going to be powered all the time, the other one is grounded by the ECM when the injector is supposed to fire, a node light will help in checking this, OR you can do what most of us do, take the bike to a good suz guy that knows what he's doing

SOURCE: kawasaki 300 bayou won't rev up.
No guarantees but try this. Pull the slide from the throat of the carb. Now move the clip on the jet needle down one notch. This will richen the low end mix. Two notches may be needed but do one notch at the start.

SOURCE: Exhaust glows bright red.
These bikes dont like to idle for very long. If you ride at a reasonable pace, it shouldn't glow for long. If it persists... Your jetting is too lean. Check out thumpertalk.com for a pictorial step by step how to re-jet

This sounds like a fuel flow problem. I suggest removing and rebuilding and cleaning the entire system, meaning Carbs, filters and strainers in the tank. Old fuel turns to gel, and floats absorb fuel, sometimes, so inspedt everything. When finished set carbs with carb sticks, both at idle and at 2000 RPM, using hand throttle.

PW have the stop\start\run switch and will not rev in the start position, there may be a problem in this switch, wire, or the ignition box which controlls this.
The small 50s can also build up carbon in the exhaust port, or the exit end of the muffler.
They also need the original air filter and cover (dont know why, but they wont rev without it).
I realize you may have checked some of these, but not much else goes wrong
