2005 Yamaha Kodiak w/48" Berco Snowblower

Recommended Posts

I just bought this blower mounted on an 05 Kodiak. I tried it out and my drive is soft and the guide wheels seem to dig in and the ATV gets stuck everywhere. Anyone familiar with tis? Is it setup wrong? Any advise would be appreciated?

the set-up is probably ok, but the driveway, (if gravel) may have to be frozen. perhaps the guy that had it before had a paved driveway or did it while the driveway was frozen.

i looked on the site, and it looks like a terrific unit !!

if you never got a manual for it, go here Products - Manual / Parts List - BERCO Accessories for garden tractors and lawn, snowblower for ATV and UTV it may offer some tips too ...

He only used it twice because he didn't like it. My driveway is gravel and right now it is packed slushy snow. I guess it cant be used in any packed conditions and when moving it around the guide wheels are always down and get hung up on things.

Okay I did a little more digging and found that there is very little clearance if any between the support that attached to the ball and the bottom of the atv. Should there be clearance? If yes then how much? I also raised the blower legs because the blade was right on the ground. I tried the ratchet strap but there is no give because the support is basically on the bottom of the atv. I also noticed the guy has 20 psi in the tires, I think iot should be 3.5.

there should be 3-4 inches i would say ... i had that much when i had a plow with basically the same rigging set-up you have. the guy may have put more pressure in the tires thinking it might give him more clearence ...

taller tires would help too, you have 25s?

27s would put it up 2 more inches ...

another expense ...

but you may not need to when the ground is frozen again ...

Okay all is well. Reduced the air from 20 to 3.5, adjusted the rear mount lower and used a ratchet strap to put some load on the atv from the blower bracket.

      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. 😎

      Rincon was stuck in 4x4 so we cleaned the sludge out of the diff, put fresh oil in and all is well.

      I have had a 2002 Suzuki King Quad 500 for almost a year. This is a question I’ve posted before, but likely missed the answer due to being new to the site. Here’s the issue. When in 4 wheel drive, especially in low range, especially when pulling a load downhill, I hear a lot of clanking in the front end. As if the front drive shaft was binding then unbinding. A friend who had a 1987 Dodge 4x4, told me all the noise his front end made when in 4 wheel drive was entirely normal. So, is this something I should worry about? I have all the bodywork and tank off right now doing a valve adjustment and carb rebuild. If I gotta do something, I’d like to do it now. Lastly, I’d love to find a carb tuning guide for this era of Mikuni. Haven’t tracked one down yet. Any thoughts of where to find one? Great forum. Have really enjoyed it so far.

      I have a Chinese Hybird 250 or that's what I was told it was. I found 17 numbers on the frame. Will these numbers tell me exactly what it is that I have? (I know that its a 2006 from a plate on the front)

      I have a 110cc atv not sure of a brand its a Chinese model. I put on a new harness with cdi solenoid and all those. I have put a new starter on, and carburetor. I bypassed the start button cause it was just making the solenoid click. with the new button switch the atv will crank but not start. I tried to jump the solenoid and it did nothing. I am stumped. also I noticed gas leaking from the carburetor and when I took the filter off there was gas in it. I cleaned the carburetor and nothing was stuck or clogged. can someone help me out.
