08 yamaha grizzly 700 front differential

I have a 08 yamaha grizzly 700 with eps, it has 800 miles and 200 hours. I was changing over my tires the other day when i notice that my brake hub on the right side was harder to turn then the left side"front". Is this normal or do I have a differential problem. Also when do I need to get my valves adjusted. The yamaha place told me that I diddnt' need it done but the owners manual says I do. Thanks for the advise.

It's normal for the right front to turn harder than the left. Mine has since day one. I asked the question awhile back and someone told me it had to do with the way the differential is setup. I've never had my valves adjusted. By the way, welcome to the site!

Your valves should have been checked at 20 hours and every 800 or thousand miles after that. Not checking them means you don't care if you lose performance.

Well maybe we should get them checked, but I wouldn't say that not getting them checked "means you don't care if you lose performance". I'd be willing to bet that most people don't get their valves adjusted unless it's obvious that they need it. My Grizzly runs better today than it did the day I bought it. Until I notice a loss in performance, I'm not paying a dealership to touch it. Just my 2 cents.

These big bore yamahas have a history of needing the valves adjusted after so many miles. The loss in performance is gradual and may not be real noticable to the average rider. If you know they have a history and it's hard to tell if they are good and you still don't check them it certainly does mean you don't care. It ain't about money, it only takes a few hours of your time. No different than making sure the fluids are good and the airfilter/spark arrestor are clean. It's not hard, pretty much something you could train a monkey to do. I taught my then 15 year old in one afternoon so I'm sure a monkey could learn.

Anyway, Crisco81 I hope that answers your question about the front diff. As for the valves, you can decide what you feel in necessary based on the info you gather here and at your dealer.

I wouldn't pay a dealer to check them.... No way!!!! I paid the whatever it was, $175 I think and they never touched the valve covers. How do I know??? The bolts were marked with alignment marks and it was obvious that they had never been touched.... I did the valve job myself in about two hours.... could tell a difference for sure.....
Don't trust them dealers.....anymore..
