  1. Ok, I'll do that, but why is it only smoking when coasting? I don't understand. And where is the float and what does it do? And how do I clean the carb?
  2. Blue smoke check, low oil, check, and when I drive it on the hard side, theres a clinking noise, like two wires touching and sparking. Looks like it's time for a rebuild. I need help though, never done a wheeler before. I'd like to bore it out and ect, get some decent gains. Where to get piston, came, valves ect?
  3. Ok thanks for the response guys. I'm almost positive the smoke is blue. Like I said it's only when the fourwheeler is not on the throttle. I'm going to check what you guys suggested when I get home from work.
  4. I got my 450 running again after it sat for a year. Fresh fuel, cleaned plug, ect. A little bit of history, when I got it (brand new) it seemed to smoke a little bit. It smelled like gas so I figured it was rich. I don't know if this has anything to do with my problem or not. Now I took it out and rode for 10 or so miles this weekend and it definitely isn't the wheeler it used to be. It is slower and doesn't run as well. Dies at idle usually and is harder to start. And it is really smoking, not at all when I'm on the gas, but all the time when I let off the throttle and it's slowing down. I mean, I think the thing is burning oil like no tomorrow. Does anyone else think this is it? I guess it's probably time for a rebuild. I don't even have 1000 miles on it yet. I would like to bore it and get a high compression piston and cam and such, but I would like some info on that too. Any answers are great, thanks in advance! Oh and I forgot, the heat indicator light has been coming on and off.
  5. Alright thanks, it's a 05 auto 450 4X4 IRS. Could it be done fairly easily and I would like everything to work correctly, like my stock screen and such. Where's the best place to find a motor?
  6. Just a quick question, I was wondering if anyone knows if a Grizzly 660 motor can be fitted into a Kodiak 450? My motor needs rebuilt and I figured I would see if that could be done instead. Basically will it fit, work, and can be used with the same transmission?
  7. That's what I did, hooked the 6v charger directly to the batter, then just to the cables, that's when it made the buzzing noise.
  8. After sitting for a few months, my 450 has some problems. For one, it won't start, I tested the battery and it is reading 6 volts, but when I connect it I have nothing. When I hook the charger directly up to the cables, I have power. Another problem is when I try to start it I get a buzzing sound from the rear kinda fuse area. Idk why it's doing that and it won't start. Any ideas? Thanks!
