Where to find parts?

13 posts in this topic

I have a 92 Yamaha Grizzly 450. It needs a new starter and a recoil (the recoil was broke when I got it). Is there a place to find used parts fairly inexpensive or even new parts? I haven't been able to find them.

If you're looking for used parts, Sportwheels in Jordan might have something.

Otherwise your local Yamaha dealership would be the best place.

I would agree that Sportwheels would be a good one to check.

Are you sure the starter is shot, and doesn't just need brushes?

They never made a Grizzly 450 in 92?

I think Sandman meant either a Kodiak or Big Bear.

I wouldn't know, I'm as mechanically inclined as a nat. I can do the oil changes on it, change the batter, spark plugs, other simple things. Learning more as I go as having a boat and wheeler is teaching me to fix these things. How would I know that? It doesn't crank at all, no sound nothing, push the start button and there is nothing there.

Lep is correct, I meant a Kodiak, sorry about that. Me not so smrat sometimes. crygrin

Mohawk Salvage, Hibbing MN. They should be on the net.

Kodiak 400. Do you know if the battery has juice? It has a backup recoil starter correct? Have you tried to jump start it?

Yea, it's a new battery. The lights do come on when I turn them on. The recoil is busted on it so that's another part I need. I haven't tried to jump it yet. Would you do that the same as you do a car?

If it's got a good battery that's fully charged I don't think jumping it would do anything. Is the key, and the run button both in the on position? Have you looked to see if the ignition wires are intact? I don't know if there's anyway to jump a cylinoid (spell?) on an atv?

If it is the brushes, a couple taps on the starter should seat them on the armature enough to get you going a few more times. Since you don't have anything at all happen when you hit the starter button, I think I would look more at the solinoid. Also make sure your battery is charged, connections tight and not corroded. You shoulb be able to jump around the solinoid with a screwdriver or heavy wire and see if your starter will turn. If it does, you have a good starter, battery, cables, and a bad switch or solinoid.
