Heading to the dealer tomorrow with my 2016 Grizzly that has just over 100 miles on it. I was in the garage yesterday and noticed oil on the floor at the right rear tire, I took the skid plate off and the oil had came from up next to the axle,rear end area and went down skid plate to the rim and tire to the floor. I possible a seal, anyone else had this problem so soon? Just rode it three times. Glad i bought the Y.E.S. extened warrenty

I just had to take mine in with engine oil leaking from the rear of the motor where the drive shaft goes in.

Oil leaks suck, on my 2017 grizzly 700 under the h/bar light there's a removable panel for battery, fuses etc, there are 4x breather hoses, it would be real easy to pinch a hose or 2 & build up pressure in diff's/engine when replacing the panel, might be worth a look.

After checking closer I found it had came from the right shock, I will make it easy for the dealer. The Elka shocks that came in this week came in just in time.

First thing I thought about when I read your first post was a rear shock leaking. This is one of the first things that started showing its head on the 2016 redesign.

The shocks on the 2016-newer models are less than half the cost of 2015-older models. Obviously a cheaper (and cheaper made) shock.

You should get the shock replaced under warranty so you have a full set for spares or sale.
