Mine which is the 708 engine has done that since it was new when it is cold out, say around 30 degrees F and below.

It seams like I have heard or the 686 engines doing to too, but I'm not sure.

I just looked over on Grizzly Central and it appears to be a common problem even with the 686 engine

This has been a commun complaint with fuel injected grizzlies for years. Cold start stalls on certain atv are well documented.

My privious 2009 550 grizzly ( based on the 686 platform) often did the cold starts stalls and then ran fine all day. My current 2019 686 grizzly does not do it.

I believe this is something to do with the emission system, they run very lean, and at the cold start, they usually do this. Someone can weigh in on if a tunner helps this. As others have said this is a cold-weather issue and not a problem above freezing temperatures.

Mine has done it since new. Happens on first start of the day can happen in warm temps as well as cold. Considering there are a lot of them out there I'm not concerned as long as it pops off the second time and performs well. Some thing in the programming . I would normally chase something like this but since it performs so well otherwise and it hasn't gotten any worse I'm letting it roll. It's not a plug.

Yesterday I went out to plow some snow. My Kodiak is parked outside under a cover and the temperature was -5.

I turned the key on and then waited another 10 or 15 seconds and then hit the start button, it fired up without dying. I may try waiting a bit again the next time that I go to start it when it is cold.

I'm gonna give that a try on mine Jim. I always wait until the fuel pump quits running. But sometimes it'll take two or three tries when its cold. Now I try to keep it in my garage when it could around here. Even then it usually wont start the first try.
Thanks for the tip!

@ JimP I gave it a go but waiting 10-15 seconds after the fuel pump runs didnt seem to make a difference to my Kodiak starting. Still takes two or three times and its parked in a garage.

I did as well still took 2 tries. happens inside or outside when engine is cold .But I'm not sweating it at this time because it always starts the 2nd time doesn't crank long and performs well afterwards but we should all keep and ear out incase something else comes up good or bad on this issue.

I tried it again on mine the other day and it's back to two times.

It looks like I need to plow some snow in the morning so I'll try again.

Went out to plow some snow this morning. 15 degrees F. I turned the key and waited for a count to 20. Started and then died, fired right up the second time.

That one time must of been a fluke.

There are definitely gremlins working overtime as far as starting.

Today at a -3 I went out and without doing anything special my Kodiak fired right up and kept on running. It did appear to take a little bit more cranking but no problem with the first start.
