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

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.
