2004 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4 wiring problem

Recommended Posts

Hello All,
I am looking for any help or suggestion that I might be able to get on how to wire a '04 Kodiak 400 4x4 motor into a Coleman Outfitters / Hisun 400 4x4 Utv. This machine had the Kodiak motor installed and was running until someone stripped the wiring to install new harness. They destroyed the old harness so it of little use now. We have a new harness for the Utv and part of the wiring to the Kodiak CDI and Voltage regulator/rectifier is in place. For now I am just trying to find a good diagram of the wiring needed to Power up the motor. Any help with this part of our issue would be greatly appreciated. I'm trying to help my son this machine running since he bought into this nightmare.
Thank you,

Let's start here. What wiring harnesses do you have and what's on them. Give in details.

Example: full harness uncut and the one on the machine has the stator wires cut and no ignition but the cdi and relays are different.
You need colors of wires and knowledge of which harnesses you have.

I used a kx motor with Yamaha electronics. On a Suzuki frame. It's possible.

Hello. I will try to give you more detail now and I'm waiting for some pics of the CDI, Voltage Reg/Rect, all that came with the Kodiak motor from my son.

What we have is a New complete wiring harness for the Utv, the old harness that someone pulled out and stripped it into a pile of loose wires and cut off many of the contacts.

The Kodaik looks as though they pulled the motor with the CDI and voltage reg/rect left wired up for the most part. The wring that is there for the motor includes the connectors for the connection between the motor and the Cdi box. I think we mostly need to understand how or where we need to supply 12vdc power to the motor.

This motor had been installed in this machine and had been running and usable until they had someone pull the old wiring to install the new harness. For some reason they stopped working on it.

I will review the new pics as soon as I get them and try to come back with more specific info on wires and colors and such.

I thank you for your time and interest in helping us.

Hello sorry but it has taken me a few days to get some info from my son. I have many new pics of the wiring on his machine and we have a major problem. We do have a Complete brand new harness for the Utv but when someone pulled the old harness they tore it apart. Many of the connector ends were cut off and are gone. What is on the machine now is just the Kodiak motor and the harness that came with it for it's CDI box and voltage Reg/Rect... The motor harness has some of the connectors still in place for the CDI and the reg/rect. but where the wires were cut, probably where they connected to the Utv and it's harness there is a problem. When they installed the motor they spliced it's harness wires to the machine using a single light blue wire and when they made the cuts to strip the old Utv harness out they cut on the light blue wire not the colored wires from either of the other harnesses. This left little if any trace as to what wire from motor was connected to which wire on the machine. I'm left with trying to figure out how to get the needed 12 volt to the motor so we can try to get it running as I'd really like to know that the motor runs ok before doing the rest of the wiring. 

 I have to keep looking for the wiring diagrams for the Kodiak side that will help me understand it's power needs so I can do some testing. I thank you for your time and hope I might still be able to pick your brian for some help on this but I guess for now I have to plow ahead with figuring out color wires from the motor go to what colors on the machine and/or it's harness.

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving day and hope to be able to contact you again in the near future.

Take the stator out and see which wires go where. Or just buy a stator and be done with it.

The problem with splicing wires is yes it will work. Dont submerge it in water or you will short it out and possibly blow that electronic. But to test and make it run will work.

I thank you for the offer. I will go back to the site and try some more but I'm having trouble finding a manual that I for the Kodiak in English. But I will try again.

Thank you for the input.

      I have a 99 Kodiak 400 4X4 that I picked up for $300.  The previous owner had modified the foot shifter by welding a piece of rebar to it so he could hand shift while plowing.  As you can imagine, the allows for much more torque on the shifter than it was designed to have, and he broke the stopper off of the the shift mechanism.  No big deal, I ordered the part and put it back together, went through the carburetor and off we go, it runs pretty good.  
      The first thing I noticed is that when I put the shifter all the way down it goes into reverse, I'm supposed to twist a knob to get it to reverse but this seems to be disabled.  Also, once in reverse, it's a bugger to get back out.  I have to hold the shifter up, then quickly back down and up again to get it to come out.  All forward gears work fine, clutch is tight, no problems.
      The reverse cable and lever are in tact and seem to move freely.  
      My question is this:  What does one normally have to do to get this thing into reverse?  I assume put it in neutral, twist the knob, kick the shifter down.  Does the brake need to be applied?  I'm not sure what's going on here, I suspect it's been 'modified' as it goes into reverse without the proper precautions, just not sure if the mods were external on internal.
       
      thanks

      Hey guys, need some help with my 2016 Yamaha Kodiak 700 4x4.  Was riding and it started smoking below the air box and then Caught fire.  We got the fire put out quickly with a fire extinguisher.  Many of the wires below the air box got damaged.   I purchased a new wiring harness for the atv and replaced that as well as any other damaged cables or parts that burned up where the fire was.  I also replaced the regulator, the ECU, and the starter solenoid. I also replaced the stater since some of the cables that went to the regulator were damaged.  It acts like it will crank but it won’t turn over.   The fuel pump initialized when I turn the key so it’s working.  I’ve spend $1500 on parts and no luck yet.  Any suggestions?

      I have a 2016 Yamaha Kodiak and find myself with a start issue.. I changed the battery so it’s not that.. here’s a video of me trying and then boost starting.. can anyone give me pointers as to a starter motor issue or fuse or wiring or whatever ?.. I find myself without a vehicle with a tow hitch for the 1st time in years so have a dead and stranded ATV to fix !
      thanks in advance, suggestions welcome

      The VIN on my 2018 Kodiak 450 is not where it's supposed to be. I bought this used. Is there another "hidden" location where I can find it? Need the number for insurance co. Thanks in advance.
