Just bought a 2013 Grizzly 700 with low miles that did a lot of sitting its life. Made the decision to pull the trigger on a grizzly from reading this forum as non member how much praise everyone had for their grizzly's. Now, just need opinions from members. Besides changing the oil what are some things I should do before really riding it since it sat for so long. Bike has 165 miles on it. Thanks in advance!

Congratulations and welcome.

I think I'd change out all the fluids. Maybe not necessary but it'd make me feel better if it were mine.

I agree with Grumpy. All fluids and check everything over. Service the air filter also. And welcome to GC from north of the river.

Welcome from Colorado.
X-4 on above, then raise the pulley ratio, add O'G.'s, a winch and ride it like it's someone else's.

Appreciate all the replies! So far I've flushed coolant, oil change, both diffs, and new spark plug. Air filter is a K&N and it was still clean. Waiting for the clutch grease to come in and I'm gonna take it apart and see if it needsnew grease. I'll have to look into hitting that rear knuckle, not familiar with it. But gonna figure it out!

Sounds like you have it covered. FYI... In the past, members have reported fine dust getting past the K&N air filters. I don’t have personal experience with this issue but when I first came here asking these questions I was told that Uni filters and the stock filters do a better job. I have been running Uni every since and haven’t seen so much as a speck of dust in my air intake.
