Are you even allowed to use the word Yamaha in this forum??? LOL. I'm thinking about buying a new 2001 Yamaha kodiak with the Ultramatic tranny. I'm looking for some feedback from anyone who has had or heard anything about these ATVs. I live and hunt in the hills of WV and I'm looking for a reliable machine. I will use the machine for hunting and mild trail riding most of time, but will occasionally do some mid weight pulling as in a cart for yard work, etc. My main concern is the Automatic Tranny Unit, how have these belt drive units and clutches worked out so far. I can't seem to find any negative opinions them. I thought this might be the place to get the real story. Thanks in advance for your input.
