I have some oil leaking from the hoses in the picture. Any idea what my problem is? I’m pretty sure it’s the water pump. Any ideas how to fix?

That’d be your oil cooler lines. Hard to tell what’s going on from the picture but someone has definitely had those lines disconnected and changed clamps. Is your oil cooler still connected or do the lines double back? If everything is still connected start by replacing the hoses and clamps.

I’ll get better pics and post them. It’s not leaking bad just a little. Wonder why previous owner had them disconnected. I am a beginner when it comes to working on the grizz.
thanks

What category would I find the hoses under for oem parts on the partzilla parts diagram?

Looks like somebody else was having that issue, you may have to remove the hoses and clamps and clean them up, they may have small cracks in the hose around the clamps causing a leak, some of the clamps do not look factory and seemed to be over tighten causing problems also, you may end up replacing some hoses after inspecting them when they are cleaned up, K&N oil filter.... oh my.

The hoses are listed under the Yamaha water pump diagram.

LOL, I am not a big fan of them, OEM oil filters for me only, I use the Yamaha wolverine SXS filter for the 708, its longer then the stock filter the grizzly comes with, oil filters discussions on this forum can be a big can of worms, LOL, just saying.

My selling point was the 17mm socket end for easy removal. I had a hell of a time getting the factory off.

I’m good to run it with those hoses leaking huh? I’ll keep a close eye on the oil level.

Well... they are leaking because there's a problem, personally I would not be able to stand it, I would have to fix the leaks asap, I would order the hoses and clamps and clean everything up, whatever I had to do to fix it right before I would run it, but that's just me, something else to think of and consider.. if your engine starts to smoke on start up and your machine falls under the repair list of serial numbers to get fixed for free by Yamaha, Yamaha reps are going to FROWN on the oil leaks and K&N oil filter, just saying.

Yes that 17mm nut on the K&N filter does make it easier, make sure you only use it for taking the filter off, not installing it, I have a slide on filter wrench for the OEM oil filters, works very well for installation and removal.

You have one of the good ones then, good luck.
Where can I find the Yamaha recall so I can double check. I can’t seem to find it.

You will find it in the Engine and Transmission section page 5, thread topic "It's official Yamaha 16-18 service bulletin for the 708"

I believe that bulletin you referenced is for Canada only...serial #’s in the US are different. I have not seen one for the US

They use the same one in the US.
I did found my Queens 2016 # listed as a 2017 made no difference to my dealer.
