Yamaha Kodiak 450

13 posts in this topic

I just baught a 2003 Honda Foreman. I had an add in the paper saying I was looking for an ATV. I got a call from a guy tonight saying he had a 2003 Yamaha Kodiak that works great it's just that the reverse doesn't work. He wants $400. What would it cost me to have this fixed? Is it a major problem? Now that I'm not in the market but maybe I could make a dollar on it or would it be by the time I'm done fixing it there goes the profit. Thanks for your help in advance.

Did you mean $4000?

Probably about what its worth without the problem.

I do mean $400. I just want to know if someone know what the problem could be that reverse doesn't work. I figure these things new are around $6000 give or take. If I go buy it and it is going to cost me $3000 to get it fixed then I'm probably not interested. But if it's a problem that could possibly be something in the range of $1000 or less and I can turn around and sell it that would be great.

Snatch that sucker up quick!! You can buy a new trans and bolt that in there and still make money on it. I would try fixing it, or used first. If you dont want the deal I will take it. I need one, and am looking for this exact deal!

Dang, why do poeple tend to assume the worst in people. I called the guy tonight he's a dentist about ready to retire. He's so hard of hearing I had to talk to his wife so she could relay the message. He told her that he decide to try and fix it himself. He said he never rides it but sometimes the grand kids come and visit and take it for a spin. The guy is probably so rich he doesn't even care what the value of it is. He did have her write down my number so if he does decide to sell he will give me a call. Now I understand why he had is son call me the other night. The grand kids must have been riding it and that gave him second thoughts. Oh well. That's life. It's not like it was a Honda! cool.gif

Haven't you heard the old saying:

"If it's too good to be true......."

I guess it's just me, but I could never take advantage of someone like that

I think someone was a little jealous. Taking advantage of someone like that. He called me and when I asked him what he wanted for it his son said $400. So it wasn't just and old gentleman it was his son too. I bet if I showed up at your door never meeting you before i just happened to pick your house out of every house in the USA with my 2003 Honda Foreman 500. i showed you the registration along with my ID and said, Hey Mr.dtro my daughter is dieing of cancer and I need to help pay for her bills. I seen your garage door opend and noticed it looks like your a sportsman. I have this ATV here and could sure use $500 dollars. We can call the police it's not "hot" could you help me out. I would bet you would take it in a heartbeat. I'm sure you wouldn't say , Hey I'll give you $4500 because that's what it's worth.

Now if you answered my add in the paper for this same machine and I answered the phone being 75 years old and asked you well I don't really know what this thing is worth what would be a fair deal and you told me $500. That is what is called taking advantage of someone.

      I would think so.  You still need a passport too.  Seems like the only change is loosening up on the mandatory check in.  You only have to if they ask you too.   I never took an RABC to exempt me from the check in requirement before this change.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has released a draft operational plan for management of the Sand Dunes State Forest, located in central Sherburne County, about 3 miles west of Zimmerman. The draft operational plan will undergo a 45-day public review from June 21 to August 4. Members of the public are invited to read the draft plan on the DNR’s website and provide comments through an online form; both are located at www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes. The DNR will hold a public meeting to discuss the plan on July 10, 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., at the Big Lake High School cafeteria; 501 Minnesota Ave., in Big Lake. Members of the public will be invited to interact with DNR staff and learn more about the draft plan. The meeting will begin with an open house, followed by a brief DNR presentation about the plan and, conclude with an open microphone session. Last summer, the DNR organized a group of local residents, government leaders and other interested people to provide perspective and advice on management issues in the Sand Dunes State Forest. The group held six open meetings, and there were often additional people in the audience who joined in the discussion. These citizen-centered discussions helped shape the new draft plan released this week. Sand Dunes State Forest, established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1945, includes about 6,000 acres of land owned and managed by the state. It features pine plantations, rare sand dunes, wetlands, woodlands, oak savanna and prairie and is home to more than two dozen rare plants and animals. The forest is a popular recreation destination for hikers, horseback riders, hunters, campers and others. For ongoing news regarding Sand Dunes State Forest and future meetings of the advisory group, sign up for email updates . Enter an email address and then select Sand Dunes State Forest from the drop down list.  Visit www.mndnr.gov/forestry/sand-dunes for notes and resources related to the meetings.

      Welcome FM Chevy!  There's lots of fish to be caught in the Mighty Mississippi.  Plenty of spots to fish from shore right in or near Hastings as well as a little up river by the Wakota Bridge.  The great thing about the river is you never know what you are going catch. Carp, Suckers, Catfish, Walleye, Sauger, Bass, Gar, Big Ol' Snapper, Leather Necks etc..Cats are just starting to spawn so they might be a little challenging and inconsistent right now.  Try some live bait straight line rigs or cranks and keep moving.  I usually don't spend more then 20-30 mins in an area before I move on.  Good luck and let us know how you do!

      One word comes to mind for the catfish bite the past couple weeks, CHALLENGING.  The spawn is in full swing and it seems that nearly all the fish went to the nest at the same time.  As always, there are fish to be caught but we have to work a little harder to find them.  The best spots have been tight to structure for smaller fish with the bigger fish being very close to a drop off or areas of current.  Sit times have been 25-35 minutes to let the bigger fish find the bait and decide to bite it.  One good tactic has been to change from circle hooks to regular J style hooks and be quick on the hook set for the shorter bites.  Bait has been try it all and see what is working at any given time.  Stink baits have been working great for smaller fish.
        This weekend is the 3rd Scheels Boundary Battle Catfish Tournament.  Even with the less than stellar report many fish will be caught and weighed in this event that brings out some of the best anglers in the area and beyond.  We still have a few spots remaining if you wish to fish.  For more information www.boundarybattle.com and to enter call Brad Durick 701-739-5808
        Join us for the weigh ins, Saturday about 2-3pm at the Whopper John Little (north) Boat Landing in Grand Forks and Sunday at LaFave Park in East Grand Forks.  Awards to follow on Sunday.

      Do you know if a Remote Border Crossing Pass is still necessary? Thanks

      Water level is a little higher than normal, but not outrageous.
