Just picked up my new Kodiak yesterday and love it. I think I found what have been looking for a simple, durable machine. Did not want too many bells and whistles I think that is just more expensive parts to have trouble with later. That being said my machine is a basic model and has no speedometer. I had the dealer install an hour meter in the glove box so I can tract hours for maintenance. My next step is upgrading the racks to carry chainsaw, fencing gear and ice fishing stuff. Anyone have any info on where to find racks. Dealer said machine too new he did not offer anything yet. Thanks

Welcome!

How many hours of riding time have you been able to put on it so far?
I haven't seen any rack systems yet but exactly what type of rack system would you ultimately need? since know they can vary a bit.

Welcome to the forum BigZig! Not sure where you can find a rack locally but maybe you can order one online.
If an open rack they shouldn't be all too hard to find, sounds like what he might want is indeed one with an open top for easy access on the work site.

Hello everyone. I just bought a new 2016 Kodiak 700, my first quad.


Bought it as a work machine but finding it hard to get off of once I'm riding. Love it.


Can anyone tell me what the MPG is? Or how many miles per tank it gets?

Mixed Terrain driving not too hard on the throttle I was getting about 120-130 KM a tank (74-80 miles). Don't think the Kodiak 700 has a reserve??

That sort of mileage seems great, might be worth the effort to get a thread going on this with a poll to see where the mass of Kodiak 700 riders are at and when.

My mileage... I have a new SE. Already down 2 bars and have only gone 12 miles. 3.7 hrs. All driving in snow between 5 -15 mph. High rpms at times. Plus lots of idleing allowing to warm up. What gives?
Dealer said it was full when I got it. Showed three bars when I got it home.
