Just picked up a 2003 Yamaha Kodiak 450 ATV. Doesn't run and it's been sitting out in a field for a while faded bodywork, seat's a mess, dead but it rolled so I figured for $100 what the hell, SOLD! I have no idea what could be wrong with it, first thing I guess is hook up a battery and see what happens. I'll likely be back here with questions for the forums collective experience. Live in the Santa Cruz Mts and sure could use a little work horse like this quad to haul stuff up and down my steep property. Thanks in advance.
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!
Just joined about a week ago since i recently bought a 2001 Yamaha Big Bear 400 4x4
We have also had a 2000 Honda Recon for about 10 years
Live in southeast Geriga and use them mostly on the property as work horses and the kids and grandkids to ride
I am sure i will have lots of questions of maintenance and upgrades,,,
looks like a great place for it!
My proficiency is with Hondas and Yamahas make me see RED!
This bike is my brother in law's, it has 1199 miles on it and went from running great to dead with no start. Every once and a while it will start and sputter for 2 seconds. It is extremely sporadic when it fires but never runs for longer than 3 seconds.
Here is where we sit:
Brand New Fully Charged battery
Carb was cleaned with air hose and carb cleaner then into the ultrasonic cleaner with Aircraft aluminum cleaner
New Shindy Carb kit (made in Japan version)
Cleaned out petcock and gas tank
New 93 Non Ethanol Gas
New Spark Plug
It gets a spark through the spark test light every time
Bluish white spark
When holding the spark plug 1/4" - 3/8" away from head it will jump and spark to the head
Here are the readings:
Pickup Coil 519 Ohms (range 459-561)
Charging Coil 266 Ohms (range 270-330)
Lighting Coil 0.700 (range 0.702-0.858)
Spark plug Cap 10.58 Ohms (10kohms
Ignition Coil Primary Coil 0.5 ohms (range 0.18-0.28 ohms)
Ignition Coil Secondary Coil 8.20 kOhms (range 6.32-9.48 kOhms)
Would y'all think stator and pick up coil, rectifier or CDI are the culprit?
