The Yamaha Grizzly (Kodiac) range of quads are pretty damn reliable but servicing is critical to ensure you get the best from your machine & lets face it, they aren’t cheap.
One of the many procedures/checks that is often ‘over looked’ when servicing your quad is that of the gear selector adjustment.
Over time, like most mechanical systems, wear of the various components calls for a re-adjustment to ensure smooth and reliable operation.
The external gear selector linkage is often neglected, never lubricated and can cause gear selection problems. If left then it can lead to gearbox internal faults which are much more expensive to rectify…it really is a case of a ‘stitch in time’ with this one….
Many 4×4 quads have similar gear selector mechanisms so this video may also be helpful to you even if you don’t own a Yamaha Grizzly/Kodiac quad.
