Fuel Gauge Replacement 1997 Yamaha Kodiak 400

Recommended Posts

I have a 97 Kodiak 400 4x4 and the fuel gauge in the tank was damaged when I got it. I would like to replace it and Yamaha has given me a price of $50 for the parts. I have a Clymer manual but it does not give the remove and replace instructions for the fuel gauge only the tank. Any wizard out there that can give me the info or point me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance

What are you replacing, the gauge or the level/sensor in the tank? What is actually broken?

The gauge on the top is broken for sure. The level/sensor may or may not be damaged. The parts are not that expensive I just can not find out how to remove and replace them. My manual shows the part but no instructions.

I would be interested to know as well. My kodiaks fuel gauge cover is not clear anymore and needs to be changed. Anyone ever popped the gauge out?

I have not popped the guage out on those, but I'm assuming there may be a clip behind it.

coderunner, did you ever get it solved?

I have a 2000 big Bear 400. probably the same part. The guage on mine works, the clear plastic cover is not clear, and broke so gas splashes out. It looks like the silver cap retaining it has little detent clips cut into the side that can be gently un-hooked with a dental pick or similar tool to remove the cover, but is pointless without a replacement part. Anyone have a PN for that? There may be an o-ring in there as well.

OK, I already found the answer to my own question. The guage unit sells for $30, and bezel for $6 from PowerSportsPro.com. Since my guage functions I am ging to remove the decomposed (due to ethanol?) clear part and epoxy on an old watch crystal. If it doesn't work it cost nothing to try.

The clock repair guy didn't have a crystal for me so i epoxied on a clear lens from an old mini-maglite. It may or may not have a problem with the gas, but at least it does't splash gas anymore.

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?

      Hello guys! New to the forum, and fairly new to ATVs. I've driven them, but never owned one. Now I do own one. Just picked it up today. It's a 1999 Yamaha Big Bear 350. It's been through some stuff. The guy I got it from told me the previous owner removed the front diff because he didn't want to replace the half shaft. So it's 2wd, even though it's supposed to be 4x4. Lovely. I can deal with that for now.
       
      More importantly, I need to get it running. The carb needs to be rebuilt. The guy I got it from said he sprayed it all out and it still didn't work. I'm concerned he might have damaged it or not put all the parts back. I was looking at a replacement carb, and the OEM parts is $600. I'd rather not spend $600 if there are any other options. I have seen carbs on Amazon and eBay that are in the $40 - $100 range that say they fit. Anyone have experience with these? I'm going to get a rebuild kit for the current carb just to make sure that won't fix it.
       
      Thats the first thing with it. Secondly, it was completely rewired. I need to find a original wiring diagram so I can put it back how it was, with a key and all. Currently it's wired with just a rocker switch. Any sources for a service manual that would include wiring diagrams?
       
      Thirdly, is the Big Bear 350 a good atv? I picked it up for $700. It does start and run when you spray starting fluid into the air intake, so I am not concerned about the engine being bad. I plan to use it for the farm, running around and carrying things with it like minerals and feed and such. Not really for mudding and things like that. How good is the 99 350?
       
      I am certain I will have more questions as I examine it more, but that's all for now. Thanks in advance for the assistance!

      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.

      Just a couple of things since i get various atvs. 
      They always need seat cover and always need oil and other minor items.
      My question is Do you buy any specific motor oil for them, i heard you must get atv oil or will mess up the clutch.
      Not sure if correct but didnt want to find out hard way. Is there a cheaper oil or can you use regular motor oil?
       
      Next they always need a new seat cover, any good places to buy bulk or cheap vinyl to re do the seats with out spending
      30-50 dollars on a specific cover?
       
      whats you go to places for parts, i use amazon, ebay  any others that offer a good deal? 
      that goes for hard parts or just cables and or clips, wiring, bolts etc no wrong answer here. 
      always looking for new ways to find parts for the older atvs. TIA Az
