The valve is open when the lever and valve are parallel. Generally that is down. When the lever is pointing across the valve it is closed. Think T vs. I. If the lever and valve cross it's closed, if they go the same way it's open.

That applies to a two position valve, if your Bayou has a reserve postion it could be different. That would be three positions and across one way would be open, down would be reserve, and across the other way would be closed. Should be marked on the petcock if that is the case.

ON = Vertical. The fuel petcock may also have a "reserve" position. If it does, then when you run out of gas riding down the road all you need to do is reach down and flip the petcock lever to the reserve position. This lets the last 1/2 gallon of gas in the tank to be used. Most petcocks have a "bowl" with a 10 milimeter bolt head on the bottom. This is actually a basin that catches a bit of trash and any water that gets into the gas.
.
Turn the lever to the "off" position then remove the bowl and look to see if any water or trash is at the bottom. Since water is heavier than gas that is where the water will collect.While the bowl is off, momentarily turn the lever all the way past vertical to the other horizontal direction. If fuel still comes out after passing vertical then you do indeed have a fuel reserve.

How do you know they are gas lines? Are they the same diameter? Why are they not still connected?
Does this ATV have a fuel pump? If so they probably connect to the pump.. one is the fuel line and one is a vacuum line... the other probably an overflow.

Hi Janna, after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Kawasaki Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealers parts/service department a call to confirm. Good luck and have a nice day.

### What are the petcock positions on my 2003 bayou 250

There are three positions. Usually when the handle points to the rear of the bike the fuel is off. When the handle points down the fuel is on and will feed fuel until the reserve level is reached at which time the bike will stop running. When the lever is pointing toward the front of the bike it is on reserve and it will start and run until the bike is completely out of fuel. If you run on reserve to get to a source of fuel remember to put the lever straight down or next time you will not have a reserve. When the bike is parked the lever should always be in the off position.

On the Bayou 220 you have 2 wires from the Ignition Switch. If I was you I would wire them 2 to a toogle switch or push bottom start.
