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.

      Hey guys.  New guy here with my first Yamaha quad.  Traded for an 01' Kodiak 400 that needs some tlc.  It was running but idle is off, missing some hardware here and there, none of the lights work on instrument panel and front brakes didn't work were the main things that jumped out at me.  I drug it home and have started tearing into it.  Started with fresh oil change and flushed the dirty brown coolant and replaced with fresh coolant.  The carburetor is missing the side cover for the throttle cable and I don't see where I can buy just that cover without buying a complete carb, so went ahead and ordered a new one (hasn't arrived yet).  the Starter relay solenoid was crap and had to mess with it to get it to start half the time so replaced it.  I have a few questions as I'm going through this quad that I'll list below.
       
      1. It has a cut plug on wiring harness under the instrument panel.  Can anyone tell me what this plug goes to?  There currently is not a plug running to the 4wd indicator light on instrument cluster so I'm wondering if 2 of the wires are for that possibly??
       
      2.  Also in the front, there is a air duct under the rack and black plastic panel that runs down to the engine case.  Is there supposed to be some sort of cover or anything over it?  I looked online at parts diagrams and couldn't even find this duct or the duct that runs up by taillight in any of the diagrams.
       
      3. this fuel line on top left side of carburetor; is this what goes to the gas tank cap or is it just a vent line for carb?  Follow up question, where does the line that comes off of the gas tank cap go to?
       
      I'm sure I'll have many more questions as I work through this thing.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

      Hi bought this quad with a few leaks and other issues which thanks to excellent advice from these forums I thought I’d sorted them till I washed it down and found oil underneath. 
      It is coming from the seal around the gear changer pedal as it looks like someone has banged the housing flat on one side. Knowing how easily aluminium is broken I don’t wanna risk tapping it back into shape. Would a new seal fit or would the distortion of the housing render it useless.
      thanks in advance

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris
