Only difference between grizzly and Kodiak power plant, that I've seen, is clutch weights..
same clutch shives, same clutch spring, same internal gears in engine, and same gears in differential..

Anyone know if the ignition/fuel mapping is different?

I believe its been tuned to have better low end performance, so you won't need to get higher in the RPM range just to get more power coming through. Good for hunters.

I guess it wouldn't really matter what the Kodiak was meant for. Still preferable to the Grizzly since it's cheaper for almost the same thing.

I don't know about you but I wouldn't let a price difference of $2000 impact my buying decision, there's far more important things to worry about when you're trying to compare like... WHAT IT ACTUALLY DOES.

I'd pick the Kodiak because it's cheaper, a fun ride and it was meant to be multi functional. It's not solely based on the price.

I'm an inexperienced rider so the Grizzly's more aggressive power output may have me flying into the bushes and I prefer the Kodiak's lower sound output too. It's also great for lazy riding days with the more relaxed riding stance.
