Purchase Price: $17000.00 USD
Total Spent: $0.00 USD
After a few years research and waiting for Yamaha to work out a few of the gremlins on the 700 I went to purchase a 2010 700 in december. They quit making Black ones for 2010 in the USA so I bought a 2009 Black one. On and off for 5 months it sat in my garage torn apart and being modded. I didn't want to buy a machine and slowly add mods over the next few years. I wanted it ALL done EXACTLY the way I wanted it before I would ride it. The only thing I'm doing now is riding and playing with the clutching a bit. 500 miles and it' sbeen a AWESOME, flawless experience. I built it to haul butt up to 45mph, don't care about topend. It's a torque monster for sure.
Right now I'm sitting at about $17,000+ into it and couldn't be happier with it. The best part- it's all payed off

One of the nicest Mods jobs I have seen. GREAT job!
One word of advice, be careful with that rear bumper. It WILL get caught on something when you finally decide to "ride" the Polar Bear and boy will that do some damage when it does both to you and the Grizz. Again...GREAT JOB! Now go ride it!

Nicest setup ever seen anywhere, are those Yamaha fender extenders or overfenders?

I have to agree that your Polar Bear is over the Top! I would be afraid to scratch it myself.
Do you feel your clutch is weighted and works properly with the Wiseco 11:1 piston and Hotcams Mudbuster. I have that same setup but haven't changed my clutch yet.

Howdy, I would love to know how you made the angles on your snorkels. Could ya help me out? I'm in love with how clean they look. Thanks in advance.
