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 drive selector
On-Command® 4WD system lets you switch between 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
