My 2016 Grizzly 700 xxc

Hey gang been a while since I posted on here. But finally got my fenders cut up on my 2016 Grizzly 700. Also got my Uni filter setup done along with EHS tuner all dialed in.
This thing hauls the freight through the woods. I just leave my buddy behind who's got the Renegade 1000xxc - and he's as equal rider as me. He is faster in a straight line but once in the woods and things get twisty and nasty the Grizzly says good bye!
Elka did an amazing job on my suspension Stage 4. It's crazy to hold this thing WFO through rock sections that would throw you off the machine in stock form and just glide right over!

Very nice! That suspension would be absolutely wicked, would love it on my 17, but they are ridiculously expensive here in Aus, have you done any engine mods?

It does look cool like that but I can't imagine how much "stuff" would get thrown up at you while riding. However, your bike is your bike so enjoy it like that!

Those fenders look sleek and like Red Rocket noted; it will be wicked splash back in any sort of mud/water. I get pretty nasty even with the current OEM fenders. Seen that done on Wranglers and becomes " chip heaven" on the body panels.

There are days here your grizz would a BLAST!
Running these high mountain trails at high speed throwing rocks at every corner, holy crap!
I would engineer something to have a cut down rear rack for a couple gallons of extra gas though. Here 130 miles on a day ride is easy to do on a stock configured grizz, so on your's who knows what can be done. I would want something to eat and drink during the long days out and rain gear and some other stuff too.
I like your idea and could make it work here, but not for every ride.
1/2 day rides would be another thing. I need two grizzlys now :)

Only engine mods are emissions removal, Uni air filter , EHS tuner and full EPI performance clutch. I took the stock tail pipe off and cut the spark arrestor baffle in half to open it up some. Was just too noisy with a muffler tip.
You are correct suspension is pricey. I had built several ATVs Scrambler, Renegade 1000. They left me disappointed with reliability. So I just said the heck with it and built this Grizzly.

It's really not that bad. If our area gets rain I wait a few days for things to dry out. And I wear full gear so not worried about rocks - most are shot out the back. With this tire and EPI clutch its amazing how much this thing is pulling itself forward and finding traction. Where my friends Renegade 1000 is always braking loose.

Thanks. I try to avoid mud running. This Grizz is built to go fast through the woods. If I do hit a big puddle its a cool off. I also notice the machine runs a little cooler with the plastic cut back.

Thanks and I agree with your comments. Really does not throw that much junk. Just hooks up. I love being able to see my tires when things get really tight. This thing was built for one thing. Go fast in the woods! :)

Go for it mate, nothing compares to lining up on that start line, like you were saying it's not just about power in the woods. We have 4 grizzlys and a kodiak at our club in a pack of can ams and last season there was at least one on the podium at every race.
