  • UTV/ATV mechanic on Kenai Peninsula?

    I have a Yamaha Rhino with some electrical issues. Can anyone recommend an independent mechanic in the Soldotna/Kenai area?

    Thanks!

                '08 Rhino 700. Won't start. Last fall the rig was idling as i used the winch to pull some logs. The engine died. It re-started right off and i moved it over to the garage where it died again. This time it would not re-start. I pushed it into the garage and tinkered with it a bit, but basically it sat until now.

                I have the service manual and figured out a way to have the digital display tell me any codes - there was a code for the throttle position sensor. I located the TPS but it is bolted on with tamper-proof torx bolts. I don't have those tools and i stopped there. I took it to River and Sea in Soldotna and they sat on it for three weeks and so i picked it back up.

                Any hints would be much appreciated! Thanks!

                  Just as a follow-up… The previous owner installed a DynaTek "soup up your Rhino" ignition module of some sort. I removed it and the rig fired right up. Whatever problems i was having were caused by the DynaTek. FYI...
