Help! 2004 Yamaha Kodiak 400 axle bearing & brakes

Recommended Posts

Hi ya'll. I just got a 04 Kodiak 400 and Im confused.The left rear wheel moves like the bearing is shot so I figured its a quick fix. Much to my dismay when I looked at it before I tore into it ,it appears to have a drum brake-no bearing on the wheel. As this is the first time Id be working on a 4 wheeler job Im a bit hesitant. The manual only shows this has disk brakes.Its a sealed drum right behind the wheel.I pulled the wheel of expecting to find a bearing.Nope! Ive never done it before but it appears Ill have to pull the axle out to replace the bearing. Am I correct and if I am can anyone give me some advice on how to do it.The repair manual isn't much help. Thanks alot!

      Recently bought my BB. Everything works great. Only thing is, each time I put it in reverse, it either starts to rev high and start moving without giving it gas or I'll give it a bit of gas and let go and it will still rev at the same rpm or higher and keep moving. Doesn't do it for high or low.

      Is it necessary to resync carbs on 2004 raptor 660 when going FROM twist throttle TO thumb throttle.  I haven’t worked on atvs for over 10 years and forgot a lot of the basics.  I know it is a different cable, so  does anything need to be synced up or can I just switch out cable?

      Hi Guys....brand new to this forum and Kodiak.
      I have a 2008 Kodiak 450 4x4. I bought it used. It has 200 miles and 100 hours.

      I tried to hook up a 15 gal. broadcast sprayer w/ a pump to the atv. It has two leads that I typically hook to the battery of my other atv and I've never had any issues in the past.

      this was the first time I ever hooked this pump sprayer to this atv.

      The atv started right up and I brought it from 1 barn to the other to hook up the sprayer. I shut it down and hooked up the two leads from the pump to the battery terminals via alligator clips. the atv was off at this time.

      when I hooked up the leads, I heard a slight crackle/pop when I hooked up the battery terminal leads and there was a slight electrical smell. i thought it was just the crackle you get when getting a good connection to the terminals. i tested the pump, it worked and proceeded to start the atv.

      No luck. All digital display items work and the atv will turn over, but it will not start. it sounds like there's no fire to it. it turns over strong. 
      I checked the choke and the auto kill switch thinking it got bumped.
      I also checked the few fuses in the same compartment as the battery. all visually looked good.

      is there another fuse I'm missing?
      Anything else I should check?
      My next step is to pull the plug, ground it and see if I got spark.....but I find it odd that not 5 minutes before it fired up just fine and it drove down from the other barn...and now it wont start after hooking up the sprayer.

      ANY thoughts or input is much much appreciated!
