I have a kodiak 450 that won't start. The battery died and it sat for about a month and a half. I put the new batt in and it turns over perfect just won' start. I drained the gas and put new gas in. I checked for spark and I have good spark. I even replaced the plug just incase. I took the carb out and cleaned it up. Still no start. fuses are all good. Can anybody help me with this?

try to start it and then pull plug ( with ignition off ) and see if the plug is wet. if so then i do not know. if not then you are not getting fuel. turn petcock valve on tank and disconnect fuel line from carb and see if gas is coming out of tank. if so id check carb make sure you didnt miss something. hope that helps

Hey I ran across your post while looking for a fix for the same problem you have/had. Mine is an 03, ran great when I parked it, next thing I know it turns over but wont fire. I did the same things you did to remedy it. Any ideas??? thanks.
