Hello All
Bought a new Kodiak 450 in January this year, took about 3-4 months to arrive with the strong demand here at the moment. (Government is bringing in new laws with regards to Roll Bar protection and Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Polaris have all pulled out).
First mod I made was to fit a second heavy duty deep cycle battery ... Why ... I purchased a 4500lb winch (also on back order :-( ).
Some pics for you to enjoy.

Sorry for the late reply.
Yes from Oct 11th this year it will become mandatory that all NEW ATVs are equipped with a roll bar.
The New and second had market is really crazy right now with farmers buying up as much stock as they can to avoid the new regulations.
There are lots of articles but here is just one example:
Here is a pic of the ugly thing.. :)
