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.

      got that 220 I'm 'servicing'..........  well it turned into a guts and oil job....  I cleaned the carb and it wont idle cold, but idles too fast when warm.  also misfires and burns rich cold (white smoke out of the exhaust)  I'm going to order a new carb since the old one is leaking and beat up (some one was tinkering)  I'm wondering about the valve clearance and timing...?  Maybe a factor?   What should the clearance be on the valves?  How should I check the timing on this bike?  (this is a mid 90s bayou 220 2x4)

      Yamaha Australia has announced it will discontinue selling Utility ATVs due to new Australian government legislation that requires the mandatory fitment of so-called Operator Protective Devices (OPDs), YMA will not sell utility ATVs after the government compliance deadline of 11 October 2021.
      “The decision to make the fitment of OPDs compulsory is disappointing. The ruling has forced us to withdraw utility ATVs from the Australian market because as a manufacturer we are not willing to gamble with our customers lives by bolting untested devices onto our specifically engineered and designed ATVs,” explains YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      As the market leader in this segment, Yamaha recognises that utility ATVs are an important part of farm operations and will comply with stage one of the new consumer legislation. This includes testing and the fitment of warning labels by Oct 2020. This will ensure that Yamaha ATVs remain available until October 2021.
      After this date customers will not be able to purchase a new Yamaha utility ATV in Australia – but sport and youth models will continue to be available. This is because new sport and fun ATVs do not need to be fitted with OPDs. In addition, side-by-side vehicles (SSVs) are not affected by this ruling, so YMA will support our utility ATV dealers and ease the transition from ATV to AG bike and SSV business.
      “Fortunately, our utility ATV customers can transition to our equally capable lineup of AG bikes and expanding SSV range,” adds YMA Director Brad Ryan.
      Customer safety has always been our priority. YMA has provided market leading rider training and promoted proven safety methods. YMA also helped develop the Shark ATV helmet which is the only fully certified farm safe ATV helmet available. YMA feels so strongly about customer safety that purchasers of new Yamaha utility vehicles will receive a free Shark farm safe helmet valued at $250 while stocks last.
      YMA is also fully committed to customer care via a national dealer network that will continue to service ATVs and with the supply of parts and accessories into the future.

      Neighbor dropped off his 2010 Ranger 400 HO. Said it was missing and backfiring. I replaced the plug as it was carboned up (kids use the side x side for chores and it is only idled around yard) Unit ran great, sent back home and it ran great for about 5 hours of run time and then it wouldn't start. He brought it back and I changed the plug again and it would start but would not run great. Pull plug and it was really wet. I suspect the carb needs cleaning and that is the direction I plan on going unless someone else knows anything about these units. ( I have never worked on one of these).
      If you know of something else I should check let me know.
      Also I am looking for a service manual for this unit.
      Thanks

      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.
