Hello guys, I am knew to the forum and owning a grizzly. I recently bought a 2017 Grizzly 700 and love it so far. I have noticed the left headlight shakes when the ATV is in idle. Is this normal, or is the headlight loose?

Welcome! It's not normal. One or more of its attachment points is probably loose or cracked.
Did you buy it new? If so, it's probably just not tightened properly and the dealer will fix it if you can't figure it out.
Used? May have been involved in a minor crash and you might have to replace a cracked piece or two, but they're generally fairly inexpensive.

Look at the backside of the assembly from under the fender. Compare it to the other side and figure out what is different.

I did buy it new. I checked all of the screws and looked for any cracks. Nothing seems to be out of place, but i am going to bring it to the dealership when i get a chance to. Thank you for your input.

Fair warning... If the dealer "determines" that you broke something, prepare to pay parts plus an hour (or so) of labor. Unless you have a really good dealer, it's better to check it out for yourself first. May be a simple fix.

Hmm. Interesting. My right side headlight was shaking, but only after I had bumped a tree and cracked the front grill. Replaced that (about $50.00), and all is good. Seems mighty odd a new one would be doing that. Maybe something is cracked that is just real hard to see.

I have a 2016 Griz 700 EPS SE that I bought new and my left headlight shakes at idle also. I did look at the headlight mount but did not see anything loose or broken. Curious if you guys find a solution.
