Howdy everyone, we're glad to be here. Lots of good info already for the Kodiak 700s and I'm thinking it's only gonna grow as they get more popular. We own a 16' Base model and love it. I've had Grizzlys before, 660's and 700's and it might be because it's the newest bike I've ever owned but it's powerful, way more that my Grizzly 700. I was impressed off the bat with it. Only issue we've had is everytime we start it up after it sits for a few days, is it will run for a second or two and die. It always runs fine the second time around. But overall, really nice bike.

We are in Arkansas, and love to ride so if you're around, give us a holler. We just became the sites first vendor and we're proud of that. Looking forward to being a part of the forum.

Welcome!!! Just a thought about the stalling on startup. Mine did the same right up until I did the first oil and spark plug change. At the same time I squeezed some blue filter oil out of my air filter, there was way to much. Might be because everything is still breaking in to. Just my experience. Take care.

I just attributed the stalling after the first start to it being cold blooded.

But then I have only started mine when the temperature has been around 20 or lower. I haven't looked inside my intake housing yet, perhaps today if it gets above 30.

I have 2 2016 Kodiaks, both are base models, both do exactly the same thing you all describe when they are cold. I never owned an ATV before, so I don't have any knowledge of what to expect. I just thought this was normal. Should I call the dealer about this?

It's not normal, I would if I had a warranty at the dealer. If you do, post back on what they say it is. Sounds like it's a common problem.
