Yamaha Kodiak 450

Question

slotlimit

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 don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
