Been a member for a handful of years but now finally a grizzly owner! About 2 months ago I decided I was finally going to sell my 2012 Brute Force. It has given me 3000 trouble free miles but after owning a king quad for almost 2 years I realized it just isn't setup as well for what I consider extreme terrain. The play power is addicting, I find it to be a real stable machine for steep hill climbs, and the diff-lock lever is about the handiest thing ever. Why I am getting rid of it is basically for steep descents. It just isn't that much fun not to have engine breaking like that found in the grizzly and king quads.

I set out to find some deals on hold-over grizzly 700's. My choices were 16's and 17's. After looking for about a week I happened to find this brand new 2015 700 SE hiding in Idaho. I called the dealer and put a deposit on it before figuring out my finances haha! The next weekend I drove out-of-state to go pick it up. This last weekend I just did the break-in fluid changes as well as finished the electrical accessory wiring setup that I usually do. This one was a little more involved, as I incorporated a couple breakers into the circuit as well. This can all be seen in the pictures below. So far I am really enjoying this new grizzly! Dag1401 and I compared it to his grizzly, and there are a number of small changes more than just the wider A-arms and motor changes. It is extremely stable now with the new width, and of course the rockers! The machine sits right between my king quad and the brute force as far as power goes. Once I have some clutch mods installed, it will be a perfect trail machine! Elkas, lights, and some other accessories will be in the near future!
