1995 Yamaha Kodiak 400 - Carb Problem

Recommended Posts

I have a Problem. I rebuilt the Carburator on my 1995 Yamaha Kodiak 400. It Starts fine. It Idols fine. I can even putt around in 1st gear. But when I give it throttle and go it will want to die. Sometimes I can drive it and it is fine, BUT most of the time when I go and shift from 1st to 2nd and try to give it gas, it chokes out or looses power and then dies. I thought maybe the fuel line was too long because the gas is gravity feed so I shortened it. Still acts up. Is there an Air/Fuel mixture adjustment on Carb? I know of the screw at the bottom of the carburator but isnt that just idol speed adjustment? Please, Any Suggestions?

Thank You

Oxidize_Black. I found a screw on the side but at the bottom of the Carb. There is a small black hose that comes off of it. It just goes down and is not connected to anything. The screw was closed or tighten all the way. When I opened it up fuel started running out. Is that an adjustment? Then there is the larger screw that you can turn with your fingers. That is an adjustment also? Thanks. My Son-In-Law gave me the quad and I have a Snow Plow attachment for it.

just the overflow hose, sounds like that's working good :wink:

i think the only other adjustment is the idle as far as i know, but my big bear is 4 years older than yours.

there is abit of troubleshooting in the manual, section 6 is all carb ...

I figured out a couple of things and it seems that I have fixed the issue. I had an air lock in the fuel line. Fuel was not flowing like it should so I loosened the hose at the On/Off switch and fuel then dumped into the the fuel filter. I also had the Intake vent that goes into the Air Filter box in wrong. It was pointing out the side next to my right leg. While driving I had a tendency to block that intake thus causing it to choke out. That Intake Vent is designed to go in the up position up under the front part of the Seat. There is a hole where that vent fits through. Wow, was that stupid of me. Oh well, its part of being a backyard mechanic.

Thanks

      Hey guys, Thanks for looking at my post. I haven't had a lot of experience with problems like this before, so I'm a little bit at a loss. The Quad was really hard to shift, (the dirty carb leaking gas making it idle high didn't help either). The only Idea I have would be is that the torsion spring is worn out, and that there is a normal parameter for how much it should move when those two arms of the shift shaft assembly spread apart.  That's my thought. Maybe someone who has more knowledge then me can let me know if i'm on the right track 😀

      I bought a used 2017 Outty 1000r and have been hearing about folks melting plastics due to excessive heat near the pipe.
      It's winter here & I've been plowing my drive for a couple months without heat issues. I'd like any input if this will be a problem come summer?!?
      TIA

      I have a 1998 yamaha grizzly 600 4x4 I have put back to life but as soon as I had all the bugs out it blew the special "L" plug out. What causes this? Is there something special I have to do to replace this?
