I am picking my Kodiak up Tuesday. They have a promotion add 18 months warranty or warn winch. I am leaning towards winch only because I have never used warranty on Yamaha atv. Had good Luck. Hate to make it with no problems for two years then regret not getting winch. But You never know. Any inputs I know it's a roll of the dice either way. Thanks

I got the free extended warranty when I bought my Kodiak 700 eps last month. The winch with mounting plate was only about $300 and my time installing it and $300 isn't much to spend for the peace of mind for 18 months of more warranty. JMO

Ok thanks that makes sense. I thought that winch was more than that. I didn't ask the price. Better safe than sorry. 99 percent of the time with some one that could pull me out anyway.

How are you liking it den? I can't wait to get mine and get in the woods. I looked at everything out there and even side by sides. Always kept coming back to the Kodiak. For a lot of reasons. Price dependability ect.

I had a hard time with the decision too. I went winch. Dealer charged 150 to install it which I didn't think was too bad. If I make it 18 months I'll be happy with my decision!

I paid $8,638 OTD with no winch but WITH additional 18 Month Warranty here in Maine. It is my understanding the the YES is available through March 31st.

I went the same and I picked the winch.Dealer tells me it takes a couple weeks to order it from Yamaha. How long it took to get yours?

This is my first ATV and I like it so far just messing around and plowing snow. The only time I have used the winch is lifting the snow plow. I tried to plow through a drift about 3' deep and had to lift the blade to get through but with a second pass was able to cut a swath through it. The Kodiak is very capable, even without diff lockers.

Nice!

Overall, how are you liking how it plows through snow?

Hmmm, I may need to negotiate the winch into the deal. I dont want the warranty, most shops employ some real dummies and call em techs.....0:)

That sounds sketchy. I thought the warranty is included no matter what.

Id bet if you pick the winch, they "throw in" the added 18 months of warranty.

Well I went with the warranty. I figured I would just buy a winch myself. I did get them to throw in a quad boss weekender seat. It was 350. To order. Can take the wife out from time to time. Have piece of mind with the warranty.
I have got to ride it about 9 hours so far. Doing the break in. I love it. It is one awesome atv.

Anybody that picked the winch over the warranty had to wait for the winch to be ordered for them by the dealer? And if so, how long it took to be delivered?

Thanks!
