I just purchased a left over 2017 grizzly pick it up yesterday started at the dealer put it in the back of the truck and drove it home in -20 c. Arriving home 3 hours later bike would not start, thought it might be bike battery might be drained from people turning it on and off in the showroom. Pushed it into my heated garage after two hours still wont turn over. Put the trickle charger on it and charged it and still same thing wont turn over. before I take it back to the dealer wondering if it could be something just simple or stupid.

Did you pull the brake in? Kill switch?

(Pulled the brake handles while pushing the start button)

I know with mine (and a lot of other ‘16+ models) you key the starter for 2-3 seconds (turn it over) then hit it again and it starts right up. If I go out and try to turn it over first push it will just turn and turn. Soon as I release and repeat takes right off...

I’m wondering if it’s bad fuel? If it’s been sitting for a year on a showroom floor, maybe it’s just separated or moisture is in the lines (frozen)?

If it turns over but just doesn't start, it's more than likely a faulty spark plug.
Not guaranteed as there could be many things to cause a no start issue, but this is the most likely suspect.

BUT saying that, it's under warranty. Let the dealer take care of it.

Welcome to GC from Maine. Congrats on the new Grizz, sucks that you are having trouble. Call the dealer. Make them figure it out, and see how they treat you. Don't let them bullshit you. Then 1. You don't have to frig with it, and potentially cause additional problems and 2. You get to see if your dealer is one of the good ones, or if they are dickheads.
I bet it's something simple as some of the other guys have suggested, once that is squared away you will have a great time. Good luck!

X2 on the plug more than likely. If it got started and shut off a lot of short times at the stealership could have fouled the plug.

I’m mean it should be fuel, air & spark = running engine. So if you hear the fuel pump, know the fuel is good, I’d check the plug next. Being a new machine, I doubt it’s anything to do with the intake...

To true! Lol. It is so easy to overlook the little things!
Especially if picked up at a dealer. They are more likely to use the kill switch rather than just the key. I always only use a key to kill the engine on my bikes and my quad, but a dealership may have used both "for safety" and it could easily be overlooked if you're not used to using it.

Prob easier just to ring the dealer n explain whats wrong and they'll go through a checklist (it'll be a small one) to find the fault' if all else fails they should ask you to bring it back for a looksee. Don't be disheartened it could only be teething troubles.

@chirsb, dealers can be really funny about warranty Issuses when you go dicken around with stuff, may seem harmless to you but trust me, they like to turn the problem around on you for some reason or the other. So best thing to do is contact dealership and take it in! Like everyone says, probably not a big issue, so when you get it back have some FUN and enjoy. PS. Let us know what was wrong with it, we like to hear about stuff like that, And your experience with the dealership.
