Hello all,

Picked up an ‘07 700 a few weeks ago. My first utility bike coming from a world of 2-strokes. Been riding a 250 Quadracer for a couple of decades.

I think I made a great choice. Despite being a large, heavy machine, the Yamaha is quite the worthy trail bike. I found I can keep up with a Banshee and Honda 400ex, easily. I wasn’t sure what to expect out on the fast rocky trails of Missouri, but am impressed with this power steered machine.

Welcome to GC and congrats on the new toy!

Do yourself a favor, when you can, consider getting rid of those horrific Dunlop tires. If you feel your new Grizz is a worthy trail bike now, wait until you get some decent rubber on there.

As an '07, you should be aware of the potential for a problem with the stator as a large number of the 07/08 stators have burned out to lack of cooling. It would be advised to look and see if yours was already updated and if not, keep the engine oil on the high side of the hash marks and also consider getting an inexpensive, permanent voltmeter to keep an eye on battery voltage to avoid getting stuck out in the woods. To see if you have an updated stator oil line, check the picture in this post - http://www.grizzlycentral.com/forum/grizzly-talk/19920-stator-replacement-5.html#post950586

Thanks for the tips! Already read about the stator. I need to see if it’s ever been updated. New tires are being put on today as well as lots of other maintence.
