    inside the CVT belt housing. It's pretty nasty. Looks like it had lots of mud and water in it for a little while. Primary clutch was full of mud. You can tell by the grooves in the primary sheaves that it was slipping for a while. gonna try it out as is, if it doesn't work out, will buy another primary clutch assembly.

    Got the carb cleaned up. (no pics). Need to get fuel tank cleaned out. Started working on electrical to get engine to turn over. Found a couple of corroded connections that need fixed, and a bad starter relay. Bypassed the bad connections with some test leads, and got it to turn over with the start button. PROGRESS!!! next step, get fuel to carb and see if it will start up! Compression seems good. Just hope it's getting spark to the plug.

    as you can see by my face, I'm pretty excited that I got the electrical gremlins tracked down in the starting system. LOL

    It's alive!! have a fuel leak on the valve and carburetor, so I pulled the tank back off, but it started right up with the fuel in the bowl of the carb!! Just need to replace some seals, and maybe adjust the jetting and put a new air filter on cuz it backfired like crazy.

    Got the Kodiak to idle and rev better. Still has a little pop mid to high throttle, I think I need 1 size larger main jet for the exhaust. But it's running a lot better than it was when I started!

    Here are some progress pics. Electrical gremlins and such. Broken wires, damaged connectors, and dirty corroded fuse box...









    "New" airbox from Ebay all cleaned up and installed. And went ahead and put back fender back on since I don't need to get to anything under there, and was able to tuck the battery and all the relays and stuff in neatly where they go instead of just dangling around loose.
