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.

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

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

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.

    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.

    • I replaced my transducer on my  fl 18 with a proview  last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore.  Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
