Any one did the grizzly clutching swap. Did you find the change good.

So far I’m more than happy with the power of the kodiak and love it’s low rpm engagement

But read a lot about how much more aggressive the grizzly is. Does aggressive mean higher rpm?

What is so much better with grizzly clutching?

Grizzly has Lighter weights. 30 vs 18 grams per weight. Nothing more

I couldn't be happier with the clutch weight change. 30gr vs 18gr weight does bring the up the rpm.

It takes some getting used to how it sounds. I am able to bring up the front end when I need to and ride wheels in low gear.


The 18gr weight really changes your 0-40 mph. It wakes up the Kodiak.

The clutch weight change helps you to get a quicker throttle response. When I ride I like to pull the front tires up when I'm going over a bump. The quicker throttle response helps me in that area. The rpm's go up but I haven't noticed a difference in the fuel mileage.

Just had 18g grizzly weights swapped into my 2021 Kodiak 700…. Very happy with the results. Just like everyone has mentioned… Snappier throttle response and man it pulls so much harder, especially top end. With the stock weights I felt like this machine dies out in top end, with these new weights this thing just keeps pulling! it feels like my brothers brute force 750. Can’t wait to have a rematch with him soon.

I actually had the dealer do it. I read a forum about some guy doing it himself and then the machine topped out at 40mph. With my level of mechanical experience I wasn’t willing to try it. It was about $100 bucks at my dealer.
but no I’ve haven’t had a chance, his axles blew. He has ridden my Kodiak since the change and agrees it’s going to come down to whoever gets the best launch. I topped it out the other day and peaked at 64.6 mph per my gps on asphalt.

That would be the first brute force owner ever that will admit that there is a Yamaha 700 that will beat the brute.
I can tell you from experience, the look on a 140lb guys face sitting on a 750 brute that just got beat twice by a 700 Kodiak with a 300lb+ guy on it.... It's a priceless look. Yet, will not admit to anyone that it happened. 4 of us there, 3 of us know the truth, lol.

I wonder why he won't have a 3rd time? We each offered to put down $50, that $150 in his pocket, all he has to do is best me on a roughly 1/3 mile straight stretch of logging road....
The 2 other guys are his friends not mine, lol apparently they are tired of hearing how great the brute is. It will walk all over there 520 Rubicon and old 500 outlander. Well no doubt. Lol some guys eh.....
