Yamaha admits design flaw with Rhino series

Recommended Posts

Are you aware the Yamaha Rhino 660 and 450 are top heavy and this leads to numerous injuries and deaths. Scores have reported these accidents in the four years this model has been on the market.

The ATV experiences rollover when going around sharp turns, even at slower speeds. Yamaha sent a letter to Rhino owners last year acknowledging the dangers but seemed to indicate the accidents were the fault of the driver.

Then Yamaha conceded the defects and decided to overhaul the design aspects of the Rhino.

When ever a Consumer Buys a Product they take an inherent RISK...There are WARNING stickers Flung everywhere on anything OHV Related or OTR related...The REAL problem is people not taking the Proper Precautions needed to operate their Product Safely or they just dont have the Brain Power to think what they are doing Through...

Then Yamaha conceded the defects and decided to overhaul the design aspects of the Rhino.

Technology is ALWAYS Changing...So what is your Point?????

I am completely lost and could use some help thank you

I have all the piping hook ups / kit that's threw HURON SPEED an i also have turbo lined up for it gt 12.. I was just wondering what else I need to make this work? I know i would need to up the Jets and stuff for starter but Is it just that simple or do I need blow off valves and like some time on regulator on it or so forth? Trying get ideal what i would need

      Hi Everyone
      This is my first post and I was wondering if there is anyone who can help me solve a problem I have with my Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 Fitted with a Mikuni Carburetor . The year of the quad is around 1998, the reason I am not sure of the date is, there wasn't any paperwork and no details on the frame either.
      The quad had a bad leak from the carb overflow which indicated that the float needle valve was blocked or passing so I replaced this and put everything back together. The quad ran really well until I took it onto some rough ground to have a ride around, a few hours later the engine started to run really rough as if the engine was flooding. I have removed the carb again and cleaned the needle valve out and the whole of the carb just in case there where any dirt behind it. Engine now runs fine again but fuel has started to run out the carb overflow again.
      I have tried everything to try and stop the fuel leaking out the overflow but its still happening. My last thoughts where to adjust the float level and its still happening.
      Has anyone got any thoughts on the problem or could suggest whats causing the fuel leaking out the overflow.
      Thanks for reading
      Kevin
