Well I figure I would start a topic over here. I have a 1995 Kawasaki Bayou 300 4x4. As of right now she is stripped down to just frame I have "new shocks" on order. For the rear I am going to try and run a set of Honda 450R front shocks.

Here are the shocks for the rear.

and here are the shocks I am going to try to run on the front.
my bayou 300 Front_rear_shock_zpsf15c565d


These shocks should give me about 2" of lift. and they are adjustable which I like. I know I could have just ordered a 2" lift for it and call it a day. but I like standing out. :'D once they get here and I get them mounted I will take some pics and update this.

Got the rear shocks in, and did a test fit. It should sit a tad bit lower once the engine is back in there.

There is one problem I see with this build so far.. maybe someone here could give some feed back on it.. I know when I install new shocks up front my tires are going to go | | to \ / . I was thinking about getting some "new" lower A-arms from a different atv that are slightly longer. or having mine made a tab bit longer.

So far for engine upgrades I have installed a cam from a lakota. I plan on boring the jug later on down the road. I also plan on doing a K&N filter and jet kit. I have a spare head I plan on port n polishing and installing a bigger cam also (some other time)

This is where I am at in this build so far. I still need to order wheel spacers, 12" rims, 27x?? tires, Primary clutch, gasket kit, and put a new exhaust on it.

Got a little work done (kinda) the old primary wet clutch was so shot i could pull the springs out with no problems so i took it apart and here is what the clutch looked like.

my bayou 300 10754905_858608237496370_310233596_n_zps071d49df

Here is the one I got from ebay. It came with the housing and all so I can going to swap it all over.

I also scored this on ebay. It shipped out today so the wait game starts.

I am wanting to do a snorkel, what would be the a right size tube/pipe to use and or how many? I was thinking about bring two 1" out of the stock holes in the lid.... would that be enough air flow? I figure the stock holes where good from the factory. I mean, hell idk what im doing this is my first homemade snorkel.

2x1" might be okay, but I'd be inclined to go bigger than that. Why? Well, you're adding pipe length, which equates to static pressure (kinda back pressure in reverse), but a restriction to flow, nonetheless. Said and done, I'd do a plug chop and see if re-jetting might be a good idea, especially considering the new exhaust, too.

I found that the 99+ bayou's have a "O.E snorkel" So i am thinking about getting that airbox and piping, still have to plug the top. but i figure it would work better than my idea.

here is a stock 99+ bayou 300 airbox

my bayou 300 _57_zps7f05010b

and the "snorkel" that I will extend

my bayou 300 _571_zps4942c236

I also plan on installing a oil catch can on this when i snorkel it. Since I will be running all the piping to the front.

my bayou 300 _572_zps1c08f50b

I am also going to re-jet and to the plug chop. but before I do that i am getting a 335 bore kit for it.
