1997 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 manual trans.

Recommended Posts

Since day one of owning the Kodiak I have not been able to shift gears going up steep roads nor down steep roads, it will shift gears fine going straight on a road though. But if i start out going up a steep road in 1st gear no matter how i try while moving it will not let me shift into 2nd gear ..etc... unless I stop then I can change into 2nd gear

its the same way if I am going down a steep hill what ever gear I am in I have to stay in that gear till I stop and change to another gear.

but again it is fine if I am driving on a straight road is this normal? if not is there a way to adjust it maybe a linkage to adjust to where it will shift easier when I use my foot to try and shift uphill or downhill..

I recently drove a small kawaski 220 and it shifts easily going up a steep road and down it without having to stop to shift.

Would appreciate some insight from someone that knows about these type of atvs when it comes to shifting them. Thank you

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
