2020 kodiak 450SE
considering people have been begging yamaha for some sort of vtwin for years and years and years id say your likely better off just buying the xtr for now.
To be completely honest, I really hope they go to the separate trans because I’ve had to tear my engine down to fix the trans more than once. It’s so time consuming to yank the whole engine out when I can pull the trans out of my can am in like 20 mins or less and do what needs to be done... but last time I pulled the grizz engine out I did ALOT of work to it. And the only reason it came out was to fix that reverse gear. Mine is an 08 700This 850 twin engine can't be installed in the current grizzly frame as it uses a very large and bulky separate sub transmission gear box. See photo #2
3rd photo is of our current 686 with the more common and compact sub transmission incorporated into the crankcase design
Well the way things are going they might discontinue it and put a stupid battery operated motor in it!They have already built the first 850 grizzly and it was longer, around 15cm. do to the covid its delayed big time ... maby 2023 ... and also to remember is that the 850 has a dry sump... its going to be a reale interesting build

You have a link to a credible source that claims this? If this was actual factual info id imagine there would be MUCH more buzz about it.
Lol. No offense, but that is the least credible source of info in the industry.I work at Yamaha Store as a mechanic ... and in October we heard that there was a working prototype, but it was greatly delayed due to covid ... and no more info than that ... take it or leave it
Many have done strokers out of the 686s in the past, so it's certainly is an option. Problem is the wet clutchs can't hold down the power and usually burn up shortly after.As long as we are wishing ATV On-demand mentioned a 1000 Grizzly when they were reviewing a 2021 Rmaxx 1000. Seriously, If you want more power out of a 686 you need to look at some of the raptor forums. There is a lot of Big bores kits & cams for the 686 engine. I don't know if the stroker crankshafts will work in a Grizzly though. If so 80HP is a pretty common build in the raptors.
