1997 Yamaha Kodiak 400 - 4x4 Switch Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hello... I recently bought a used 1997 yamaha kodiak 400 4x4 .. I cannot find no 4wd switch on it at all... I got the manual for it from someone on this site and it shows its on the drivers side handle bar where you give it gas but there is nothing there at all... so thought maybe it had been removed but there is no lose wiring no where that connected to anything there...

so i been trying to figure out how to get from 2wd into 4wd but there is no switch to push on it as far as I can tell...

and my neighber said the reason i could not pull the manual cable to start the atv is because you have to release compression with a nob are something before it will pull easy to start the atv?

Sure would appreicate anyones thoughts on these two things thank you

it just might be full time 4 wheel drive. block your machine up and see if the front tires spin also ...

as for a 'knob' for decompression, not likely. the trick is to pull the cord and make tension, count to 3 and then pull hard. PIA for sure, i had to do it with my grizzly, and it's no fun ...

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
