hello everyone, new to the grizzly 700 xt-r got it about a month ago I have like 1 mile from backing it out of my garage a few times haven't had a chance to break it in yet but damn it smells when it heats up and the back fender gets pretty warm is this normal, is there any common problems with these I should keep and eye out for. I heard they run lean and to move the gas vent as high as possible but that's all I have heard so far any advice would be great thanks everyone

Welcome from Colorado.
Look into a fuel controller to adjust the a/f ratio.

@sam c ...Welcome to GC from Wisconsin.
XT-R I assume that it is a 2020 or 21.
The have the 700 (689cc ) engine back in them. The 708cc engine is the model that ran very hot. I have a 2019 689cc it doe run cooler than the 708 but a trad hotter that the 2013 689 I have.
Really nothing to worry about. All machine will run hotter idling. Mine runs at 180°-190° on the trail. Shortly after I stop the temp will run up to 206°-209°. Idling for a 10 minutes yesterday it ran up to 212 it was 88°. Soon I was up to 30-35 mph it dropped back to 185°

Most engines when brand new have a certain smell as components heat up the first time, wears off soon enough.
