Yamaha 400 Kodiak 4x4 help please.

Recommended Posts

I just got a 2004 Yamaha that needs some work.Its got wet brakes on the front that Im trying to get working.My problem is the brake lever.V PARTS Lever brake lift right POLISH  YAMAHA YFM FW Kodiak 400 400 (2002-2002)This the lever on it now.On the master cylinder it has a cable in it that has the wire that fits in a slot inside the lever itself but this lever isn't made for that.I dont know if whoever had it before didn't know what they were doing or what but its the wrong lever for this machine. Can someone point me in the right direction here? I looked at the Yamaha website and the schematics only show a part that looks like this one here. Again,I have a 2004 Yam 400 Kodiak 4x4 and its an automatic model. BTW,the master cyl. was bone dry. I was gonna change out the rear brake shoes and when I went to pull off the wheel,get this, each wheel stud had 2 different sized washers holding the lug nuts to the wheel rim. The stud holes were so worn out it had worn away the base of the studs and the holes were the size of  quarter! Im lucky someone didn't die while riding this! A word to the wise.Pay attention to what you buy.Look carefully and keep a keen eye out. This was my fault because it was the 1st ATV Id ever bought and I didnt notice alot on this machine so I guess I count myself lucky in that I didnt get hurt nor did anyone else who rode it either.

Well at least you found this out now then later like you said. There are parts available on eBay for that bike. If its a master cylinder then the Brake handle should have a plunger plate on the lever like the one you posted. I looked up a lot of other brake parts and there is plenty. 

Post a few pics of your master cylinder if you can

Yhat appears to be the correct brake  handle for the right side (  master cylinder for  front  brakes.  The left brake uses a cable to activate the rear brakes. From everything I  found in searches , there is no cable attached to the front brake ( right handle) lever

That part I put an arrow on the handle is the part that pushes the plunger on the second picture where I circled. That plunger is what activates the break.

      1997 Yamaha 350 Warrior, should there be oil in the stator area? Have a no spark situation.
    • By Nick Gudex
      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.

      So i have an old yamaha bear tracker that was given to me from an old farmer I know. I decided to refurbished it and fix all the quick fixes on it. I am pretty sure that it is either a 1999 or 2000 based upon the original wiring harness. Little did i know when I bought a new to me wiring harness from ebay that it was from a 2003 or 2004. My question to everyone is do I need to have all the stop switch assemblies hooked up? I think there are three on the 03/04 models and only one on the 1999 to 2000. Any help I can get for this would be great. I haven't run it yet due to the motor and crankcase is in two totes.

      I purchased 2 Yamaha Raptor 125s a few months ago and I purchased a membership here to be able to access the service manual. I have looked at the service manual multiple times in the past month but I don’t see it here anymore in the download section! Can someone help me and tell me how to access this manual again?

      I've had a seriously annoying time trying to deal with the brakes on my rebuild. What size is the fitting that screws into the inverted flair cross and into the caliper? I plan on trying to make parts I need with braided steel hose.

      I found a manual for the Grizzlies, which I do not see on the main thread of manuals by Oxidized Black
