kodiac = bigbear ?


Recommended Posts

hi all, just a question about my atv i've a bigbear professionnal YFM400FW and when i search on web pics of him i found that the Kodiac 400 is more similar then mine...for example the headlights are near in mine like the Kodiac. Maybe they're differents versions to europe/japan/US market? If i take service shop for bigbear 400 i can see a chapter for radiator/coolant but my model is air cooler with manual 3 positions shifts : high -low speed and rear... If someone have some info for my Atv? :yes: when i try to put my 17 number to know the year : it says that it maybe a japan model....:aargh:. I had recently to change my carb intake manifold and i put a kodiac one....It's very difficult for me when i purchase something for this Atv to know what parts gone on mine.....:aargh:

The Kodiak 400 uses Big Bear 350 parts. The Big bear was first in the generation line before the Kodiak. The Big Bear Pro came out using the larger engine as Yamaha had intended the Kodiak to go into the Ultramatic only setup. At least that's how I remember it going in Canada. The US had a different line up change.

it means that when you will order parts you will look for YFM400FW parts.

Big manufacturer such as Yamaha will have same platform with minor changes = as less

different parts as possible,save money,administration ways more easy.

for example raptor 350 as the same engine! as warrior

I am working in mass production company and this is the way to work.

I hope I helped
