When it is cold outside, say 35 deg F and colder, it is very difficult to shift to Reverse from neutral. Engine temp doesn't have an effect. I apply the brakes hard with the hand lever and the foot pedal. In another post I read that high idle can affect shifting when the engine temp is warm.
I will try it with lower idle speed once I find the screw. In the interim, can you tell me if there is some sort of adjustment for the shifter?

Its in pretty rough shape and its gonna be my first atv, I worked on bikes before but nothing to do with quads. Anyways the quad has some problems and im tryna figure out what to focus on first. So the U joints i think are shot. The bike starts first try every time ussually have to give it a lil gas with the throttle and revs right up, idles fine but its running REALLY rich 3 starts and my brand new plug was pitch black
Bike is L model
Its using the original mikuni carb but im not the best at fixing the carbs and wondering if there is anywhere online that would be able to either walk me through it or help me with it i didnt see a air mixture screw so it seems like im gonna half to open it up and adjust like the float and a couple other things
So this 98 Big Bear is my new project. While I'm waiting on a few parts to show up, I'm working on a few small things. I can shift 1-5 just fine, no problem at all (keep in mind, this is not running yet so just manual shifting sitting still). However, I can't shift from 1-neutral. I can hold down on the foot shifter, rock it a bit, and it will disengage the clutch so i can push it around in neutral as long as I keep pushing down on the shifter. However, it will not downshift to neutral and stay there. I know BB's have had some shifting difficulties in the past, but before I dive into this, have any of you fine folks encountered the same issue? I'm tempted to just adjust the linkage a bit since these have an external linkage, but thought I'd toss the question to the group and see if there are any common issues to look for.

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 !
