Is there any need for ethanol-free gas? I use ethanol-free gas in my big Exmark commercial mower, but didn't know if that applied to the Grizzly.
Should I drive the Grizzly in 4wd now and again? My '99 Tacoma 4x4 says to run in 4wd every now and again to lubricate the front wheel bearings.
For winter storage, is there any need to use an engine fogger? There's nothing in the owner's manual about that. I trickle charge the tractor & mower batteries, and will do the same with the Grizzly, but I'd appreciate any additional winter-storage recos for the Grizzly.
ROFLMAO....and I thought it was just me. These long time racers and wrenchers forget sometimes, that some of us are newbies. I often find that I have to read more, or Google some of the lingo to make sense.
As it stands, I'm going to have to open mine up to see if any of these mods have been done or not, as the previous owner was no help at all. Only thing I know for sure, is it is currently rolling on 31" outlaws, so mods may have been done.
Some terms I'm still trying to translate into normal speech.
I really appreciate all the help, but I sometimes need a crib sheet or code book. As it is, I've been copying much of this info into a Word doc so I can reference it later. And, until I got the Grizzly, the only "sheave" I knew of was from "Bringing in the Sheaves." LOL. Still, I'm learning a ton of stuff and look forward to learning more.
I won't be storing the machine for more than 15-20 days at a time before I have it out. I bought it to help with chores, so it's going to be working.
I'll put non-ethanol gas in it because that's all I put in my 5-gallon cans. And I treat all of the gas with StarTron. It's worked just fine in the mower where it sits for 90-100 days in the winter without being started, and I've never done anything else to prepare it for winter except change the oil.
Thanks for the advice. I really appreciate everyone's knowledge and experience.
Sorry. I was in a rush on that last post. All these topics can be researched here on GC. Although we always welcome questions, the chances are excellent that it’s been asked and answered a thousand times before. A better (IMO) search option is this “site:grizzlycentral.com search topic”. Put that in your address bar or search engine with whatever topic you are researching like “shim” or “AIS block”. That will give you only GC hits. Let us know if we can help further.
I check my air filter on a regular basis to make sure no dirt is going into the engine. If you are going to be using it for a work horse IMO I would change the differential fluids more often VS using it as a play quad as heavy loads will break the oil down quicker and make sure you use only Yamaha gear lube for the differentials. In case you dont know there is a upper and lower Grease zerk on the rear suspension above and below the axle shafts on both sides.
Hey guys, im lined up to buy a 2018 Yamaha Grizzly 700 on Wednesday and before i sign my life away i have one question to all of you;
What can the bigger 700 do that the smaller bike cant? Why go with the Grizzly 700 over the Kodiak 450 color copy by 55 printing ?
I have a few general ideas...
Bought a 2019 grizzly 700 eps a few weeks back, just now got to 100 miles. The guy at the dealership told me 100 miles or 20 hours but the bike only has 15 hours, should I wait to take it in or do it now? I’ve heard a few different things from a few different people.
Just got this 'thing' (kindest word I have called it) and some of these built in features to "protect owners" are aggravating.
First thing I did was tear what seemed like 20 danger/warning/caution stickers off they had stuck all over.
Yea, I realize some of the gen-teal population need to be...
Bought a used 2007 Yamaha Grizzly 660 4x4 automatic yesterday. It road great when i test drove it. Took it out with some friends today and tried out the four wheeler drive and played in some mud holes. When it was time to start the ride home, the atv would not go over 20 mph. It will just high...
