So after I finally got out and rode some better trails and some mud time I have been seriously thinking about adding a better tire and rim. Bigger and better for mud as well as tough terrain.
I have been looking around and can’t make my mind up.
Im sure @mikeexplorer @Yamaha Grizzly @Gunny @06kfx440 @Ajmboy as well as many more members have opinions and more importantly a few different vendors that I can take a look at for pricing and availability!
Im looking at a 25 inch tire as a maximum without having to lift it or do any suspension work.
While I'm on the topic I’m interested in snorkels!
Yes I'm (we as in my oldest boy) are thinking about going deep! Kinda hooked on the mudding, water and crazy trail riding.
So I wanted to start a thread about modifications on ATVs OR SXSs that makem look sick or run better. It can be any modification from new handlebar grips to a winch to an added lightbar, but I was focusing on tries and rims. Here are some of my simple additions to my Bayou 300: I put looker front shocks on it, added a 2500 winch, replaced the headlight with a blinding 6in light bar, and added new and bigger rims and tires:
and just for clarification, all the pics are of it with the lightbar on it, the last one is of the stock headlight.
To start it off, I'd like to share the bakery display cases I made for my wife. I'm sure ya'll have some impressive stories behind those HF tools, let's see 'em!
I built these bakery display cases for wife on almost 100% HF tools a couple years ago. Only thing I bought from Home Depot was the wood/plywood/stains and 3 sawhorses for my workbench. Router, circsaw, blades for both, sander, sandpaper, gloves, the nails for the nailgun (gun borrowed from dad, have a 5# pancake for air) I had almost zero tools to start.
Some of their cheap "speed" clamps failed, but first time for me using those types of clamps, was expecting them to hold better:
heh my youngest helping my dad glue:
and for fun, here was the finished project (1 of 2, built 2 cases, this is the smaller .. the plastic was from Tap Plastics for the "sneeze guards" and the top case):

My first long ride on my latest bike, an '18 Kodiak 450 EPS I bought slightly used failed. In the North woods I stop on a two track for a blowdown. I Shift into reverse, and instantly the engine dies. Completely dead. The shop tells me that the 40 amp main fuse(there are two, One being the main the other for the EPS) blew. These are the slow blow variety. The shop had to order the fuse,which tells me that blowing that fuse is rare. I hope they can find the cause. Anyone else have this happen?

My 1996 Yamaha Kodiak 400 has a cracked CV Axle boot and the axle wiggles back and fourth if you pull on it. It also clunks if you go from forward to reverse fast with the tires turned hard one way or the other. Im thinking a new axle will solve the problem. Can you guys walk me through the steps of replacing the CV Axle, I have never done anything like this.

Started my 2006 Yamaha Kodiak 450 up recently (March 2019) and it didn't seem to idle good; the idle was erratic. I turned off the fuel and the engine eventually speeded up to where the Revere red light started flashing before it ran out of fuel. I changed the spark plug and no change. Bought a new carb and installed and still not change. Starts good and runs great when driving but the idle sometimes doesn't come down to where I can shift and other times it goes so slow that it stops running. I have stabilizer in the fuel and have started several time in the winter to keep the battery charge without problem but now that has changed. I have 5700 miles on it but have maintained it good and it has been kept in the garage since I bought it new. I have really loved this atv.
Any ideas on what the problem could be?
I'm about ready to take it to the dealer for troubleshooting but at a $110/hour I'm trying to solve the problem myself.
Thanks for any help or experiences any of you have.
Hey folks, thanks for the add. I purchased a 2000 kodiak a few days ago. The seller claimed an electrical problem which he didnt care to investigate. I thought it was going to be easy...and initially i found a blown 10 amp ignition fuse, and a blown headlight fuse... changed them and tried to start, but when I turned the key to run, the N light came on for an instant and the fuse popped...I unplugged all other connections to the wiring harness I could find, kept the ignition harness hooked up and tried again...the fuse blew again...I then disconnected the outgoing harness from the CDI and this time the with the switch turned the neutral light comes on and I can enable the start switch and hit the starter button and the motor turns but does not actually start, i can also turn on the headlights and taillight in this configuration, however, when i hook up the out going side of the CDI, and turn the key, the fuse blows....HELP? any ideas to get her running? I have not removed the gas tank to look under it for frayed wires, but so far, no frayed wired. With the input side of the CDI plugged in, and all other wiring harnessed connected the starter will turn, but engine wont turn over. As soon as I plug in the outgoing (8 plug) harness into the CDI and turn the key, the fuse blows. Thanks! Gramps
