TRW Interesting, did you have any engine braking, when it failed. I have engine braking until I get up over 7 or 8 mph. Did they give you a reason for the failure? Any other symptoms when it failed?

Engine Braking

On My 2016 700 Kodiak I had to have the one way bearing replaced twice under warranty. The engine braking returned after each replacement.

MNhunter86 I've never really had a concern with my Kodiak 700 engine braking allowing me to run away on the steep down hills. In the fall I haul quite a bit of bear bait on my machine up and down some pretty steep inclines(by Minnesota standards) in low range and it tames my speed down to what I consider a safe speed with out much braking. It also has plenty of torque to climb back up the other side. Granted I don't think I've ever gotten over 15mph in low range, If I'm in low range I don't need to be going that fast.

TRW I don't get up to or over 30 mph often, I take it easy most of the time. This machine needs to last me 50 years, as I am only 67!

Colorado Kodiak 700 Wow, I feel like anything over 20 mph in low gear is going to blow a gasket. I really like hearing about the atv's limits without having to test the limits myself.

I fear the consequences if something engaged as I reach 30 mph in low range. Engine RPM is slow at this point.
Shouldn't be any issues driving up to 40 mph in Low range , I've done that many times. Just revs more, and engine braking is much stronger. Just be aware.....

For sure. Like I said, I've never experienced the kodiak 700 heavy weights and shitting carotiristics. So there is certainly some truth that his bike may be behaving normally

I've racked up alot of miles on my buddies 09 700 Grizzly witch utilizes the exact same spring and cvt components as the all 700 kodiaks. The only exception his Grizzly came with 21g weight factory stock. His bike has zero cvt mods and is 100% stock other then 27" tires. Driving his bike is very similar to driving mine as fare as breaks and engine braking etc.....In low range 4wd drive, we both don't need much brake force to maintain a steady speed going down steep hills.
