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!

      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?

      Anyone ever replaced the shifter shaft on one? Not sure on the year but assuming it is in the late 90's. Is it a huge task, splitting the case etc... thinking about buying it as my next project.
       
      Thanks

      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. 😎
