Headlight Issue 07 Wolverine 450 (YFM450FX)

Recommended Posts

So , it's been quite some time since I've had any Atv's to play / tinker with , I found a decent deal on craigslist for a 2007, starts and rides great , but it also has a few minor things I didn't notice when i test drove it.

I Noticed that one headlight was very dim while the other was bright , I decided if i'm gonna spend any money , i might as well get something good. I ordered a set of the LED bulbs , i believe H6 ? Long story short put them both in and only 1 worked. I notice today when i have the switch in the OFF position the one i thought didn't work indeed does, switching to low turns this one off an the other side on, High leaves that same side on and i haven't noticed any difference in power output. My first guess was a wiring issue but it all looks to be untampered with , so to google i went hoping to find that it was a common issue and maybe someone has a fix. I haven't found much and ive noticed it hard to find anything at all about my particular model , but i did come across a few things that mention the YFM450 (Kodiak and or Grizzly ) have the same engine? or very similar , although the chassis parts are not the same , Which brings me to my next issue , Im assuming they had smacked into a bunch of things an the front bumper was removed , i'd love to get my hands on another only i cant find anything online. Does anyone make aftermarket parts for these? Last,i sought out something with 4x4 to leave myself open for the option to add a plow , I'd Love to see picture if someone has the same model and has mounted one , Just to give me an idea of what it in tails to install a new one. Any and all help is appreciated, Thanks in advance.

      13 ATVs and dirt bikes impounded from N.J. wildlife area. Riders face list of charges.
      State officials charged several people with various violations and impounded their ATVs and dirt bikes last weekend from the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area in Ocean County, authorities said.
      Police officers with the state’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation were investigating illegal off-road vehicle use in the management area on Saturday, July 25 when two ATV riders tried to flee, officials said.
      When officers caught up with them, they issued summonses for criminal obstruction, interference with the duties of a conservation police officer, and violations of wildlife management area use. The two ATVs were impounded, police said.
      The next day, a group of ATV and dirt bike riders from northern New Jersey drove past several “NO ATV” signs posted in the wildlife area known as “clay holes.”
      Clay holes, or “blue holes” are former gravel or sand mines filled with water. They are popular, although dangerous, destinations for teenagers and adults looking to beat the summer heat.
      Officers issued summonses to the riders for illegally operating off-road vehicles and for driving unregistered vehicles. They also wrote tickets for illegal swimming, possession of alcohol and entering a restricted area.
      In all, 13 ATVs and dirt bikes were impounded. The owners are facing fines starting at $274, and impound, towing and storage fees of at least $300, conservation police said.
      In a statement, police said “only registered, insured, street-legal vehicles are permitted in Wildlife Management Areas. Vehicles may only be operated on established roads and parking areas.”
