I got my kodiak up to 44-45 mph today on a paved road. Is this the normal top speed? I feel like it should be more like 55 mph. I just did a bunch of maintenance on it and their was a bunch of water in the snorkel and clutch and everything. It looks like the atv was swamped and hopefully I fixed it. what else should I do to ensure its running properly?
That's about what my stock 02 did on hard packed dirt with 5lbs of air pressure and stock Dunlops indicated by the factory speedo. I would think your body weight would also have an affect. I am around 145lbs.
Just tonight, I ordered a set of 26" Kenda Bear Claw HTR radials and also just put on a set of 1 1/5" wheel spacers to add stability. At 40+ that narrow track the Kodiaks have made be a bit nervous. I'm not really into top speeds, but I imagine the new taller radials should give me a few more mph.
