Anyone planning to use their Kodiak 700 in winter like me will be pleased to know its equipped with Mikuni fuel injection with 44mm bore and throttle position sensor, meaning easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition.

Haven't had personal experience with other ATV's but i've heard of Polaris guys complaining about cold starting in winter, just hope we won't experience any of that here.

Any idea if Yamaha provided more information on conditions it'll work in?

I couldn't find any detailed information on the fuel injection and the lowest temperature that will be perform in. Maybe someone can find a mmore specific number for the Grizzly? They are similar and both are made by Yamaha.

its not the fuel injection you have to worry about in the cold, its how much amperage you have for cold cranking.. more the battery then anything...

I still couldn't find anything about this on the Grizzly but a few people solved the issue for the Polaris by switching to a battery with a little more capacity or just a larger battery than stock to fix the start up issue. Maybe the same can be applied to the Kodiak and Grizzly.

yea most people who are expecting to put it to work in more adverse conditions will make the investment into a top shelf battery...

I'm just curious how low the temperature has to go before you start running into issues. Are we talking sub -20 degrees celsius? Sub -30 degrees celsius?

Not sure about the Kodiak 700 but someone from another forum has complained that he has trouble starting his Grizzly 700 in temperatures around 10f to 0f. He had to idle it with the starter.
I would imagine that most people wouldn't ride their ATV in sub -20 degrees celsius.
