I here ya, i just bought a 2017 and its been one thing after the other. Im waiting now for the parts for the rebuil kit and am seriously contemplating selling for something else. The bike i had before this was a 92 big bear and that thing is bullet and is still running. I went with another yamaha for reliabilty thinking this bike would last me for years to come but now having alot of doubts.So I have had my Kodiak in the shop all summer waiting on the backordered parts (due to Covid) for a complete rebuild. The dealer mechanic tore into my engine and informed me that my valves and top end were thrashed. Since my machine has been in the shop my dad let me take his Kodiak, which has already been rebuilt, and checked his oil pre-ride and found that it has started burning again. Needless to say I am frazzled because of the re-occurrence of the severe oil burning. I am wondering if it is worth selling our machines and going with a 686 or trading them in. I really do love the machines overall and am super grateful to our dealership for taking such great care of us. They are a dream to ride but the oil burning is a big concern to us given that the atvs cost us so much.
