2006 Kodiak 450

Hello everyone. New to Grizzly Central and glad to be here. Picked up a 2006 Kodiak 450 today this thing has 192 miles on it and is like brand new and i mean like brand new. Its in better shape than my 09 wolverine 450 that i bought new. Now the problem, this machine has been sitting in a garage for the last 4 years and not seen any use at all (none). Here is my question. What should I do to get it ready to ride? I can tell already that mice have been bedding in it and I found a nest in the rear trans cooling duct. Oil change / spark plug / change diff fluids / change coolant / new air filter / clean carb / adjust valves / adjust idle . Any other things you guys would suggest that needs to be done would help greatly . I am happy to find this machine and I can tell already my wolv is going to see some idle time. Thanks for any and all help.

I would have a look behind the CV Transmission cover to make sure the little critters didn't nest up in there and fill around the sheaves with their crap. While you have it open, you might want to take that opportunity to throw a shim in the primary, i mean, why not, you got it open anyways

shims space your primary further apart,belt rides lower in primary higher in secondary. more low end but less top speed. You can have your primary machined for more low and keep your same top speed.

Buy them on eBay "shim mod" or at a local fastener supply. They are too cheap for you to bother making them. They are basically just washers but thinner. From 0.5mm-2.0mm
