04 Kodiak 450 4x4 problems, need help

Recommended Posts

alright here's the deal. I bought i 2004 kodiak for a great price but i has some issues that i need help with.

the first is the atv shows a random MPH while setting still and it changes when you start moving but is by no mean accurate. shows something like 5 MPH sitting still and like up to 25 MPH while moving in low range.

the second is the atv shutters in reverse and won't back up. it idles fine in reverse but when you give it throttle it shutters like it would if you were backing up too fast and the speedo shows somewhere around 10 MPH but i'm not moving.

could both these issues be related to a speed sensor somewhere? any help is greatly appreciated.

Could be alot of things, the speedo problem could be the speedo itself, a fault in the wiring, or whatever sensor the speedo gets it's input from. As far as the problems being related, that would depend on what is causing your machine to shutter, does it seem like a mechanical problem that is making the machine do that in reverse, or does it seem like the motor is cutting out? It sounds morel ike a mechanical issue from your brief description, and the fact that the machine doesn't move makes me think it is a problem with the gears not engaging or something is broken or slipping in the reverse gears. If the motor is cutting out, they could be related I guess. I would start by inspecting all of your machines wiring, look for damaged wires and loose connections. Could all be just because of one loose ground wire somewhere. The more you find out and post here, the better we can guess as to what is causing your problem. Good luck.

Its definitely cutting out and not mechnicial related. I thought the bike might be reading a false speed and cutting out

Start inspecting your wiring, if the same problem is causing both of your symptoms, this could be like chasing down a ghost. Hopefully you can find the problem quickly. I would strongly recommend getting a repair manual with a wiring diagram, there will be lots of valuable info in there as well as some troubleshooting tips. Good luck.

try unhooking the battery for 1/2 hour to reboot the computer. See if that helps- it just might...

I used to own a Kodiak 450. What type of reverse shuttering, is it with diff lock on? Does the override do anything?

      I have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 400 Automatic. It has an oil leak inside clutch cover. The middle gear has two oil seals, the front seal is leaking engine oil into clutch area. How do you change the leaking seal?

      Got my Yamaha Grizzly buttoned up finally and went for a quick 2 hour ride in the power lines with my neighbor, who has a Yamaha Kodiak. We have access from his yard, which is nice. Was a beautiful day today to get out and will try to go more often. Ran into two other quad riders with a sportsman and I think grizzly. Also ran into a dirt bike rider. 😎

      I know this tooic has been addressed by many, I’ve looked through many forums and pages. I did not find anything like the problem i have.
      I have a 2007 Kingquad 450. I have a new fully charged battery. When i turn the key, the dash flashes and seems to struggle before getting fully lite. We can hear a small relay near the computer clicking, i think it is the fuel pump relay. When i turn off the engine kill switch and press the starting button relays click and all the power shuts off, i turn the key off, engine kill switch then start over, power is there. Atv will start with pull start, but not elextricly. if i try to use my winch, all power cuts and engine dies.

      I have a 2018 Kodiak 450 EPS that just this past Sunday I ran through a bit of water.
      After the puddle the belt was slipping, so I pulled over and drained the ultramatic housing and the slipping problem went away. This was all in L and everything seemed to work fine. Later when I got on a road, I put it in H, but it still rode like it was in low... i.e. I had to rev it up a lot just to get to 30mph.
      When at home I pulled the ultramatic cover off to inspect, and it looked okay in there. Not much dirt, belt and everything are clean, but when I rev up the engine (with cage in place, of course), the belt doesn't get to the top of the clutch (maxes out about an inch or 1.5" from top of clutch, so maybe it is normal).. I put it back together but same thing... H seems like L still.
      Do you think the clutch needs to be further dissected for cleaning, or could this be an issue with the gear selector?

      I have a 2018 450 and the digital gause has started flashing on an off while driving. The backlit also goes on and off. It is worse when I hit the gas. The battery died a few weeks ago and I jumped it but its been fine until last night. Called the dealer and showed them a vid and they recommend replacing the gauge and its like 600 bucks. The machine has less than 100 hours on it. I would really hate to have to change it out. also the unit sometimes has trouble starting. Any ideas?
