Yamaha Kodiak 400 - Starter Bearing Problems

Recommended Posts

Hi All

i have a 2000 Kodiak 400 that seems to have a starter bearing problem and i would like to confirm it with your help.

the electric start works but does not engage the drive shaft. the bike however it will start with the pull starter. little hard on the arm tho. i have removed the pull starter and the staiter but at this stage am having trouble getting the flywheel off with out a puller to do the the work (any hints gratefully accepted). i have done this to check the one way starter bearing. If you could help me i would be greatful.

Thanks Jenko :skeptic:

Jenko, in order to remove the flywheel you will probably have to either buy a Flywheel puller:

P/N. YM-01404, 90890-01404 or use that part number look at the photo of one and make one yourself. The link below is one that for sell on ebay. Hope This Helps, Whip

Thanks heaps.

i rang an old mate of mine who has a bike shop, they suggested a harmonic balance puller could do the job. ... it worked a treat. the bearing is definately worn and so is the drive gear. replacing both.

Jenko, I'm glad to hear you got the flywheel off and now are on your way to getting the atv all fixed up right!

      Hi. I own a 2001 Yamaha Kodiak 400 4x4. I am looking to buy new rims for it. I just don't know what rims exactly that I need to get as the back and front rims have a different offset. I'm looking at the itp Delta rims. I have tires from my grizzly that I would like to use on my Kodiak. They are size 25. If anyone could help with the specific rims that I need to order, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

      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.

      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.

      Hi everyone,
      I have a question, if the starter clutch gear looks fine but is still not working correctly then all I should need to replace is the one way bearing, right?
      thanks,
