Hey guys... Any advise on an exhaust upgrade on a Kodiak 400? Without all the noise, but with all the power?I have to figure out the charging system issue. Or I might just put a high quality heavy duty toggle switch inline or either the positive or negative cable. Then just shut the switch off when I'm not using it. Then there will be no way for any kind of draw when it's not in use.
Never had a atv before friend made me offer could not refuse 600$ news tires new aluminum all around runs great. Just installed new headlights will only come on low beam , anyone with an idea for correctionI bought my 2000 Big Bear 400 4x4 new in the fall of 1999. I love it. I like the auto clutch manual shift 5 speed transmission. The super low first gear is awesome. My friends with full automatic belt drive ATV's are faster then me when riding on regular dirt roads. However on the rough narrow bumpy trails they can't keep up to me. It's like they have "turbo lag" or something when letting off the throttle then getting right back on it quickly, the powers just not right there at the crack of the throttle, there is a slight hesitation. I can keep my RPM's anywhere I want to and have full power and acceleration as soon as crack the throttle. Not that we race a lot, it's just nice to be a little faster then them with their larger ATV's when I can.
The only problem I've had with my BB is something drains the battery. It's done it from day one. . . . .after the warranty expired. I've put three or four batteries in it so far and it needs another one. I have a 1.5 amp trickle charger I leave pulled in all the time. Doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm gonna buy a cheap battery from Walmart from now on. They're half the price of a factory or suppose to be good battery.
My friend and I cleared a acre of land of mostly black cherry with some maple and oak trees to put in a food plot. We used my BB to haul all the logs to a landing so we could move them off the property. We cut the logs in 10 to 12 foot lengths. They were anywhere from 8 to 20 plus inches in diameter. My BB pulled them great. I have a 5 foot Moose plow for it that works great. Mine is full time 4x4, which doesn't really both me. Most of our riding is in the woods on small rough trails so being in 4x4 helps a little even when it's not really needed. Other then the battery issue I have no complaints. I knew what I was buying, I wanted more of a utility/work/trail cruising ATV then a sport/trail cruising ATV. I thought about the Wolverine, I'm glad I got the Big Bear though.
I fixed it just reversed the light socket and they work fineNever had a atv before friend made me offer could not refuse 600$ news tires new aluminum all around runs great. Just installed new headlights will only come on low beam , anyone with an idea for correction
