Hello All

After a 10 year gap of no ATV I ordered a new Grizzly on Saturday.
I have had 3 Outlanders previously and really wanted to try something different.

2018 Blue EPS with the aluminum wheels.

Dealer is installing a 3500# Provantage/synthetic and front heavy duty bumper.

I plan to change the tires to a great radial and then.......????

Its gonna be fun getting back on the trails.

Welcome to GC and congrats!! Make sure to check how they tap into power for that winch switch. Dealers are bad about using those cheap wire taps.

So what should I ask for here? How do you guys tap my power? do you use quality materials?
thanks

There’s a pigtail available that plugs into the plug for your accessory outlet under the “hood”. It gives you extra wires that can then be soldered to. New machines were coming with that pigtail at one time. Ask if yours did. If not, it’s cheap. Most guys here solder and seal the connections with heat shrink, liquid electrical tape or both. Dealers generally do what’s quick, easy and gets them working on the next machine. All that being said, I just spliced into the hot wire for my accessory outlet. Same for my heated grips. I wanted those two to only be functional with the ignition on. All my other accessories are running through a fuse block straight from the battery.

Welcome from Colorado.
X-2 on key on power source.
Also check the routing on all wires for loose loops that can snag on something or reach the exhaust. A few extra zip ties may be needed.

Yep. When the machine is brand new is a great time to use dielectric grease on all electrical plugs. It’s way easier when it’s new, clean and easy to get those plugs apart. Putting a wrench on all the nuts and bolts you can get to is a good idea also. I guarantee that the kid in the back of the dealership prepping new machines doesn’t care about your new Griz nearly as much as you do.
