who is making the grizzly 700 motors past and present i was told they are made in china now is this so
There's talk that the current motors are made by a subsidiary company of Subaru that Yamaha acquired. Don't quote me there.
That is direct from Yamaha so should be considered a credible source.global.yamaha-motor.com said:With regard to the transfer of technological assets, Fuji Heavy Industries will specifically, transfer to Yamaha Motor Powered Products Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Kakegawa, Shizuoka, Japan, President: Osamu Ishioka, 100% subsidiary of Yamaha, hereafter “YMPC”) technology relating to three products, namely, EH65, EH72, and EH65V of the EH Series V-Twin Overhead Valve multi-purpose engine range, which are used in large generators and large lawn mowing machinery etc. . The acquisition of this technology will enable YMPC to sell the EH Series V-Twin Overhead Valve multi-purpose engines both within Japan and overseas.
I heard that, too... They were in talks with my daughter's kindergarten class not long ago. Too bad they went another direction... I really felt her class would get them straightened out.In other news, I've heard that Polaris has moved their engineering department to Montessori education centers.
