New to the site. I have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak 450 YFM45FAR that I'm having issues with the gear indicator lights. I'm having intermittent park and neutral lights and when they are not lit the starter will not work. It will start by the pull cord . Anybody else have this issue. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Hi Guys....brand new to this forum and Kodiak.
I have a 2008 Kodiak 450 4x4. I bought it used. It has 200 miles and 100 hours.
I tried to hook up a 15 gal. broadcast sprayer w/ a pump to the atv. It has two leads that I typically hook to the battery of my other atv and I've never had any issues in the past.
this was the first time I ever hooked this pump sprayer to this atv.
The atv started right up and I brought it from 1 barn to the other to hook up the sprayer. I shut it down and hooked up the two leads from the pump to the battery terminals via alligator clips. the atv was off at this time.
when I hooked up the leads, I heard a slight crackle/pop when I hooked up the battery terminal leads and there was a slight electrical smell. i thought it was just the crackle you get when getting a good connection to the terminals. i tested the pump, it worked and proceeded to start the atv.
No luck. All digital display items work and the atv will turn over, but it will not start. it sounds like there's no fire to it. it turns over strong.
I checked the choke and the auto kill switch thinking it got bumped.
I also checked the few fuses in the same compartment as the battery. all visually looked good.
is there another fuse I'm missing?
Anything else I should check?
My next step is to pull the plug, ground it and see if I got spark.....but I find it odd that not 5 minutes before it fired up just fine and it drove down from the other barn...and now it wont start after hooking up the sprayer.
ANY thoughts or input is much much appreciated!

Hi ya'll. I just got a 04 Kodiak 400 and Im confused.The left rear wheel moves like the bearing is shot so I figured its a quick fix. Much to my dismay when I looked at it before I tore into it ,it appears to have a drum brake-no bearing on the wheel. As this is the first time Id be working on a 4 wheeler job Im a bit hesitant. The manual only shows this has disk brakes.Its a sealed drum right behind the wheel.I pulled the wheel of expecting to find a bearing.Nope! Ive never done it before but it appears Ill have to pull the axle out to replace the bearing. Am I correct and if I am can anyone give me some advice on how to do it.The repair manual isn't much help. Thanks alot!
I've got some good parts left over from my recent 4wd 2003 Big Bear adventure. Used on 2000-2010 Big Bears.
Very good complete head-fits 350 also, came off 400 2002, Have timing chain, gear, guides, case & trans (2wd)
Fuel tank, harness, misc. electronics, front shocks/springs, also have some other stuff.
Most parts also fit some 90's models, (Kodiak 400 '93-'98), check it to verify.
Located near Chattanooga, LMK what you need, offer, cash/trade.
I turn the key on and the dash lights up, the head lights work... I push the button to start and nothing happens, no click/crank, no noise at all. It will pull start, I can jump start it from the battery to the starter, and I replaced the starter relay. IWhat could it be???
Oh , and it is in Park,and I tried the kill switch several times in both positions, that does make a faint click, and sounds like it’s working
