i noticed after the event i went to this weekend that when i first start the quad up after it has been sitting for a little bit that is smokes for 30 seconds or so, its a white smoke and stops, just does it when i let it set for a while and start it up then it doesnt smoke. what is the problem?

Which area is the smoke coming from and did you add anything new? I've heard of this happening with new parts burning off their packing oils.

its coming out the exhaust, no new parts have been added. i just put wheels and tires on it but dont think that would do that to it. i has over heated one time and i shut it off as soon as i saw the light come on

I just picked mine up off the dealer on Saturday, and when I got it home I noticed some smoking from the exhaust. I ran it hard down the road for 50 yds and back, it hasnt smoked since. KNOCK ON WOOD. Hope you get it figured out. I'm hoping its like kodiakbar stated

How long have you had your Kodiak and how long has this persisted?

Hope you are able to get this taken care of and to find some answers.

The engine on the kodiak is aluminum so if you over heated it and it stops at some time i would think you have a warped head or like you said a blown gasket.

Well took my kodaik in a few weeks ago and got word back yesterday from the dealer. They said the piston rigs were bad.
