Welcome aboard! :gcrules:
Bring tools (for him). lolThanks to all of you. I'm calling in sick Friday to go ride with a friend. He has a Polaris 850. I'll be watching how well his machine works.
Welcome to GC from Maine! That should be a great machine for you. Check out the threads on here concerning the stator with the 207-2008 machines. Doing the upgrade is not real difficult if you are mechanically inclined and have some tools. Definitely download or buy a service manual. Have fun with it!Hello Grizzly Central Members,
I like this site and have been lurking for a few months. I picked up a 2007 Grizzly 700 EPS in camo and ducks unlimited trim a while back. It has 1400 miles on it and I paid 5000 for it. I have been really happy with it and am amazed at what it can do. I put a Cabela's/Warn winch on it, a Yamaha slippery glide plate underneath, and found some new tires and wheels that someone took off their new machine. I also put an Ogio Honcho rear bag and some Rotopax cans on. I found a neat pistol grip shifter for it, too. I had a problem with the reverse switch that I diagnosed with help from this site. The dealer fixed it for me though. I just took a trip down the Rainbow trail near a place called Westcliffe here in Colorado. It was so fun. I will post some pictures of my Grizzly when the site lets me. Thank you all for contributing to this community. I enjoy looking around and reading here.
Really hard to say if all of the 07-08 Grizzly 700s will all have a stator that fails because of it burning out in the 10 o'clock position. Have you looked to see if yours had the update done as it is possible the previous owner(s) could have had it done when the Yamaha program was in place?I read about that stator problem. I would not like that to happen. Do they all do it? Mine has some miles on it, is my fuse burning?
What is the voltage reading when you are giving slight throttle? If you are 14.x volts, you should be OK. BTW, the stator burn out doesn't appear to be anything that happens overnight. So keeping a permanent voltmeter on it should be sufficient enough to understand when it may be starting to go bad.If my stator is ok right now, can I get away with just doing the cover that has the oil line going into it, or is that a bad idea?
