New or used? Grizzly 450 , King Quad 450, would be just a few good choice in that engine size.

I looked at a bruin 350 a few years back but ended up buying a Yamaha Kodiak 450 just because of the more power and 4WD features made a difference. They don't make the Bruin 350 anymore, it's a Grizzly 350. They are witin $100 of each other. Are you looking 2WD or 4WD?

Look at the specs of the 2 and compare, next..go sit on them both at a dealer.

i wud probably go for the yamaha.. all around good atv.. the only one thing i dont like about kawasaki is that the front suspension is modeled like the polaris sportsman.. it has the macpherson strut compared to the yamaha bruins double wish bone... and the bruin has a speedo compared to the kawaskis three idiot lights... here is a website that u can compare the two atvs 2005 Kawasaki Prairie® 360 4x4 ATVs

and u can also get info from people about the two atvs

If you get a late model Bruin you can get IRS. The Kaw. has a straight axle. That is one consideration. I have owned four Yamahas and they were all very good quads. I haven't had a Kaw. but many of my friends swear by them. Your doing the right thing, take your time and research then buy the one that best fits your needs.

      Working on a bayou 220 that has been ran extremely hard it's whole life. Literally had almost an inch thick dirt/oil covering the motor. Yeah that bad. Surprisingly it runs though. I cleaned the carb and tank multiple times. They're clean enough to eat off of. Readjusted valve lash and set timing. Was about 3 teeth off. It cranks good and runs good only problem is I have to cover the carb intake basically choking the hell out of it for it to start. The com choke works fine. It does this each time I start it regardless of temperature both ambient or motor. Wth? Compression is at 115psi I get 130s if I put a little oil in the piston chamber. Please help. Thanks

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      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.

      I picked up a 1997 Yamaha Big Bear 350 2X4 a week or so back in non running condition, apparently they said it needed a new carburetor or a battery, I cleaned the carburetor thoroughly and got it running on idle and without choke now and it shifts into all the gears even into reverse. Aside from making me bounce a little when trying to start out with a bit of throttle the shock suffice to say needs work. Anyways I made a video of it running and would like your opinions on it, as to how it sounds while running. It seems like it has a little whine I'm not sure why that is maybe someone can tell me what it is. Anyways here is the video.

      Hello, 
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Bear Tracker in the shop for repair. I have the service manual but it doesn't have all the information I need to fix the problem. I need to know the voltage output of the stator charge coil and pulse or trigger coil at cranking speed. The wiring diagram color code doesn't seem to match and that is compounded by the fact that the wiring harness CDI connector is missing so I have 7 wires that need to be connected to the CDI. I can not find a circuit diagram of the CDI which tells me where the pulse/trigger coil connects or the charge coil connects. The other 3 wires (black ground, orange ignition coil, and r/b ignition kill sw) also need to be connected. The CDI has a single 8 pin connector and has a P/N 4XE-00 F8T19871 -1122 number on it and I believe it to be OEM. However I think the Stator and pulse coil are aftermarket items. I have resistance tested everything and it all seems to be in spec. but I don't want to miss wire anything and cause damage. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      In 1985 my dad bought our first 4-wheeler off the showroom floor in West Virginia. It was an '85 Honda Fourtrax 250. My Uncle drove Suzuki Quadrunners which were (to be honest) great bikes as well! So we were all constantly testing each other to see whos was better.
      Lemmie tell you something...that Honda was in no other ways to describe it....BULLETPROOF! It never needed any major repairs, it survived mudholes that todays 4-wheel drives have trouble with and it had a front end that weighed as much as a tank. The only repair we ever made to it was that the muffler had fallen off due to rust. It was kept at my grandfathers place in WV and at one point it went completely untouched for years. Going back up there we expected at the very least...a dead battery. It fired up without breaking a sweat.
      No ATV on earth comes close to Honda quality. They truely are built to last and even though I enjoy riding Suzuki's and others as well...there will always be a Honda in my garage. Because when I take it out on the trail, I am guarenteed its gonna get me back home.
