I just recently sold my Kodiak 700 because I was offered a good price for it. I removed my Coop sheave (Mod#3) before it left thinking I may use it again some day, but decided to sell it now instead. I bought it this summer from Arnie and it only has 80 miles on it. I also have a set of the Yamaha 18gr Grizzly weights I will sell with it or separately (bought these about the same time). If your interested shoot me a PM so we can work out the details.

Yah it was a very hard decision. But the money was very tempting and will go along way towards paying off the new Viking. I will be watching for another Kodiak or Grizzly, miss it already. The Viking is much better suited for the farm Chores and family Stuff.

That would certainly be a hard decision. Congrats on the new Viking! Hope she serves you and family well.

That was quick... but gotta agree with Vincent that it is one of the best mods to be had for a Grizzly/Kodiak. Good luck with the Viking and stick around, like you said that hopefully you will be on a Grizzly/Kodiak again in the near future.

I agree with tires being first mod but in my opinion the JBS shive much better choice as I’ve had both, just my opinion as I felt like chiming in this Friday morning 😎

Interesting you say that, and ofcourse appreciate your input.

I've never own a JBS products, but what I've noticed on this site is his sheaves seem to be hit or me affair. Either owners ( like yourself) are very happy with the product, and other aren't so happy and question what they gained for their investment.

I've read 3 members say they spent 400 -500$ on JBS kits and report that that jumping back and forth between their buddies machines with 50$ shim / spring and they couldn't tell the difference. I've read many others express regrets or unsurtenty on wether or not their JBS sheaves were worth the cost.....

That's Somthing I had not read about Coop's machined sheave, Nor have I ever read anything but good things from owners who run his sheaves..

When I was considering buying a machined sheave at the time Coop's cost me 320$ Canadian, JBS would have been over 700$ shipped to my house in Ontario. Because of what I had read on this forum and the rediculious cost comparison I stayed clear of JBS.

I've now racked up over 5000 miles on my Coop sheave and am still happy, though if I had the opportunity to try JBS hot rod sheave ( without the insane cost) I would gladly give it a go. I'd love to form my own experience / opinion on what JBS has to offer. Heck maybe, I be reporting the same great results as you....who knows

Took me a while to decide what to go with after reading all the reviews on here, I decided JBS but didn’t cost nowhere near what you were quote, after riding it for about a year I decided to give Coops a try. I was totally impressed with the JBS but again after reading more reviews I just had to try Coop’s, after all I’ll take all the power I can get. So long story short I bought and installed coop’s and put maybe 2 hours on machine than switched back to JBS. I know have a Coops shive sitting in corner of garage with a bunch of other shit I shouldn’t have bought threw the year. To each their own !!!
