95 Yamaha Kodiak 400. Yes? No?

Recommended Posts

Heyy i am new to the atv buying thing so can you guys help me out. I

Found an old 95 kodiak 400 with 900 kms on it, body is in very good condition, no cracks, not faded, and everything works... On the body. The engine is a different story... It needs a new starter, battery and the tires are bald. Water might be in the gas tank. The atv is $800 good body condition. So yes or no? Anything will help :) thanks

Nada Guide is:

Excellent $2400

Very Good $1620

Good $750

Fair $300

I think $800 is too much for that and the condition. With no repairs needed and just regular wear and tear, $750 is a good value alone.

You should snap a picture and post it in this thread. :yes: Sounds to me like it's a $500 machine!

I'd be careful if you think that there's water in the oil pan/gas tank. Had a similar problem and let me tell you it's no fun. Try to talk him/her down to about $500-$650. I wouldn't pay anymore than that for a 95 in that condition. You mentioned that the fenders were in good condition? That's always a plus. Very hard to find fenders for an old machine that won't run you about $300 D:

Ihave a 95 Kodiak myself.I have found alot of parts on E-Bay,like starters and things.If there's water in the tank it can be drained out.I have found that an additive called "Sea foam" is a real good gas treatment for water in the tank and as well good for the ethanol that has been put in the gas.I purchaced mine for $1100.So id say you got a good price for the avt.Its just my opinion.

Use a photo sharing site like Photobucket, copy the IMG code and paste it right into your post where you want the picture to show up.

      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've been riding Suzuki Kingquad 300's for the last 20 years. I have 3 of them. I love the low gearing, low center of gravity, low rider position, low racks shaft drive and smooth ride, but they are getting old and I'm tired of fixing them. Best engineering of any utility quad, IMO, but the execution...build quality is not up to par with Honda, so the price you pay is lots of wrenching.
      I positively despise CVT type belt drives. My neighbor has a couple of old Hondas, Rancher and Rubicon and I admire the reliability of them. He does very little maintenance and they always run and have pulled my Kingquads home for me when they break.
      Is Honda the only company that makes ATV's that don't have CVT? I like the build quality but I don't like the high rider position caused by the vertical cylinder, the cold nature of them, having to warm up for several minutes and the plastic skid plates. I guess all modern ATV's have the same issues, though (correct me if I'm wrong).
      Been checking with the dealers, it seems Honda foot shift models are scarce. I really don't need devices/gadgets to decide which gear I need to be in. So I'm avoiding the DCT models. I must have IRS and EPS because of my age and physical condition though.
      Is it possible to get a Rancher with IRS, EPS and foot shift? The specs I'm reading show the rancher is 2" lower than the Rubicon. I'm assuming that to be seat height. With vertical cylinder design, the more you grow the engine, the higher you push the seat....at least that's my thinking.
      Any comments from the Honda experienced?
