New 2017 Grizzly

I just picked up my new 2017 Grizzly. My last one has 22250 km on it and is still running great. I had the gear shifter modded on the 2004 so that you didn't have to press the brake to shift gears. Can this be done on the 2017 without removing the cable? (Just in case I have a warranty issue) Also is there any know problems with this year Grizzly yet? Thanks.

Congrats!!! Only thing I've changed on mine (2016) was a fuel controller because of it being lean and a different air intake bc of the poor design. I went with EHS but lots of other solutions posted to the board. Other than those I love mine, it's been great. Congrats again!

Hey, Sailorman, welcome to CG! Enjoy your new ride!

I believe that for the 2017 year model Yamaha removed the shifter interlock cable, so you should be all set, no need to mod anything.

We just picked up a blue 2017eps for my wife. They've improved greatly over my 05 Kodiak. I may need one for myself too. I haven't clocked any miles on it yet but it feels like a great machine. It was surprising to see Yamaha killed most of their at lineup and only offer a 700 4x4 atv.

That really surprised me also. I think they're sales will suffer this year because not everyone wants a 700 cc machine.

It does look as if the shift interlock is gone, or at least works differently than the 2016 if it is still there.

Yes I figured out the cable was gone. I was bored and only half listening when the salesgirl was going over the switches but she did say to press the brake when changing gears. Another question. What are the electrical connectors for, that are in the fender storage tub. Aux Lighting perhaps?

The dealer I bought mine from is the largest dealer in Colorado. Besides a couple dozen dirt bikes, there must have been a hundred SxSs. The ATV I bought was the only one I saw there. I think the ATV market is very small at this point.

That might be location-dependent. One of my local dealers has 2 or 3 UTVs and a showroom floor full of ATVs. Another one (a Polaris dealer) has about half and half.

I did a lot of research before I bought mine and I read somewhere(I was reading on every site I could find so I don't actually no where I read it) that you do not need to press the break to shift. My dealer mechanic confirmed it was correct. That being said I still believe you need to be stopped. I haven't tried switching from low to high range on the fly.
