2023 Yamaha Kodiak 450SE



  • 421 cc, liquid-cooled, SOHC, 2-valve, fuel injected, single
    • Proven design with an excellent reliability record
    • Engine uses regular unleaded fuel
    • Rubber engine mounts reduce vibration & noise for excellent rider comfort
  • Electric starting
    • Includes auto decompression system for fast, easy starts
  • SOHC, 2-valve cylinder head design
    • Simple 2- valve design (1-intake & 1-exhaust)
    • 40 mm intake & 34 mm exhaust valves
    • Rocker arm valve actuation… simple, proven design that is easy to adjust
  • Aluminum cylinder body with cast iron liner
    • Cylinder can be over bored in the event of an issue (2 sizes of overbore available)
  • Short skirt forged aluminum piston
    • Lightweight design means faster throttle response & less mechanical vibration
  • Gear driven engine balancer shaft
    • Reduces engine vibration for improved rider comfort
  • 34 mm Mikuni throttle body fuel injection system with TPS & ISC
    • TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) is used to more precisely calculate the fuel injection quantity for optimum power, excellent throttle response & reduced fuel consumption
    • ISC (Idle Speed Control) helps ensure a steady idle even during warm up
    • Other fuel injection benefits include; choke-free starting, excellent fuel economy & reduced emissions
  • Throttle limiter
    • Easy to adjust, screw-type throttle limiter
    • Throttle limiter reduces acceleration & top speed if desired
  • High mounted, high capacity air box with washable foam air filter
    • No tools required to access air filter
    • Washable foam filter can be re-used reducing tune-up costs
    • High mounted design helps prevent water ingestion
    • Air box features a “no tools required” drain
  • Yamaha’s industry leading Ultramatic® CVT (fully automatic) dual range transmission with reverse & downhill engine braking
    • Dual range, high – low transmission with reverse. Low range offers more “grunt” for towing or hauling heavy loads or when tackling technical terrain
    • CVT automatically selects the optimum transmission ratio, meaning you are always in the right “gear”
    • Ultramatic® design offers controllable, confidence inspiring downhill engine braking
    • Downhill engine braking also reduces brake wear & related servicing
    • Ultramatic® design utilizes a special centrifugal clutch which keeps constant tension on the V-belt, reducing belt wear since the belt does not slip as the clutches engage
    • High mounted belt cooling ducts help prevent water ingestion
    • V-belt housing has an easy access “no tools required” drain plug
    • Automotive style, gated, 5-postion shifter (high, low, neutral, reverse & park)
  • Convenient, handlebar mounted push button On-Command®
    • 2WD, 4WD limited-slip and 4WD with diff lock
    • On-Command® system lets you select the best mode for the conditions … not the machine
  • Straight design front & rear drive shafts
    • Straight driveshaft layout eliminates U-joints, reducing friction, noise & vibration
    • Front & rear CV drive shafts feature heavy duty plastic boots to protect the CV joints from mud & water penetration for extended service life
  • High capacity cooling system with electric cooling fan
    • 53% more cooling capacity than the last generation Kodiak 450
    • Maintains consistent engine temperatures for optimum performance
    • Radiator is positioned high in the frame for protection
    • Design reduces heat reaching the rider
  • Wet sump lubrication system
    • Spin on type oil filter for fast, easy oil changes
    • Oil drain plug access hole in skid plate
  • Maintenance-free transistor controlled TCI ignition
    • Produces a strong spark for fast starts
    • Provides precise ignition timing / mapping for optimum engine performance at all rpms
  • Marine style, waterproof connectors on key electrical components.
  • Stainless steel exhaust system with catalyzer & cleanable spark arrestor
    • Spark arrestor prevents stray sparks from exiting the exhaust
    • Catalyzer reduces exhaust emissions
    • Stainless steel design helps prevent rusting
  • Air Injection System (AIS) injects fresh air into exhaust port to fully burn any unburnt fuel, reducing exhaust emissions
