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?

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

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.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
