I take my quads in and out of the garage while I do my wood working and they have sat outside in pouring rain. I checked inside the box...BONE DRY. So now I can say they are water proof and I'm from the Pacific Northwest!!

Swando, do these boxes impact your vision when mounted on the front of the quad? I have a 2014 700 as well. I have a large cargo box on the rear and want to keep that rack clear for hunting. When i saw the atv tech box you listed i noticed you can lash items down on top of the bag. It looks like i could lash my rifle down on there. Are they in fact waterproof? I have an Ogio honcho soft bag and after a week of constant rain where we go moose hunting, all of my clothing and gear inside is damp. The black fabric also holds mud and only looked good until i went for a ride. I'll try pressure washing it in the spring.

When I'm in doubt about climbing steep slopes I bungee a bag of sand on my front rack.
No Sheet!!:devil: Where do you store it until you need it? On the back rack, in a backpack, do you have them strategically placed along the trails?:poke:

I'm a new rider/owner of a 2014 Grizzly 700 SE...HOWEVER I have put 2300 Kms on it in the past year. I would consider myself an advanced rider in respect to the people I ride with and the trails we ride, meaning they have been riding for years compared to me.
Here is my question and would be a big help from fellow Grizz riders.

I feel my Grizzly is light in the front end when climbing and hitting a bolder etc and feels that I'm going to flip over backwards/sideways.... (I did once and lucky to be alive) I say this as I ride with a lot of Can Am 570, 800 and 1000 owners and they do not have the least bit of problem compared to me.

1. Do we have light front ends?
2. Suspension issue?
3. I don't know the first thing about changing the shock settings...if this is it what should they be set at ? I'm 210 lbs and 63 years old!!

Great to see an aged rider in the midst of insanity! I'm 61! I only ride technical stuff, amd enjoy boulders best! Anyhow, I mounted a 3.5g Rotopax to my front rack and it has balanced my machine (2016 Grizzly 700se) perfectly! Especially, when I am at full gear and tools in my Kolpin rear box! I hope this helps, Rotopax is a hearty full container, and we'll worth the expense! There's 2, get the better of them! You won't be disappointed! I also lean forward to put my weight ahead!
