2009 Yamaha Kodiak 350
The 2009 Yamaha Kodiak 350 brings together the comfort of Independent Rear Suspension (IRS), the traction of Diff-Lock and a new wet rear brake for those moments of intense exploration.
Packed with features including Yamaha’s bulletproof Ultramatic transmission,
mated to our On-Command 4WD system with rider selectable push button 2WD / 4WD / Diff Lock 4WD, and a set of Maxxis tires, this little Kodiak workhorse will get the job done, with time left over for a trail ride. And with an sealed wet brake in the rear, you’ll have added confidence when the weather decides not to cooperate.
Independent Rear Suspension (“IRS”) – improves ride comfort and ground clearance
Sealed rear wet brake
On-Command 4WD with Diff-Lock
Features and Benefits:
The Kodiak 350 shares the same long lasting and well proven 348cc engine from the Bruin 350. Durable fuel efficient and versatile.
Fully automatic transmission with engine brake for increased rider confidence, reduced brake component wear, and no freewheeling when off gas or down hills.
Push-button servo-controlled “On-Command” system allows you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD – all with the simple push of a dash mounted button. Real 4-wheel drive when you need it. With Diff-lock engaged, there’s no need to wait for one wheel to spin. You have traction to all 4 wheels, immediately. This puts you in total control… you decide when you need 4 wheel drive… the machine doesn’t decide for you.
