Yes I know this is a Kodiak forum, but let's be honest Grizzlys and Kodiaks share 90% + of their genetics.

Currently my much beloved 09 550 Grizz has 13 500 kms 610 hrs and still runs as good as new. How do I know it runs as good as new? Cause I've been jumping back and forth between it and my new baby. 2019 Grizzly 700 SE /LE with 1200 kms and 60 hrs

Vincent, thanks for the info, everything you add to the forum is always interesting and insightful. I have a 91 Honda Fourtrax 300, that I use about 4 times a year and it also never lets me down.

Switched my machined sheave from the 550 to the 700.

Stock ratio was 2.45:1
I'm @ 3:1 now with a 0.5mm shim.

Holly Crap these new 686s RIP!!!!

On pavement in High, the front wheels come right off the ground with No effort other then throttle !

;)

Lol
No they will be sold separately. It was just more convinent at the time to take off a tire and replace a tire kinda thing....

Nice machine. Might trade mine in on a new machine this fall. Then again, I might just keep it and pick up a 450 for the wife. Undecided. Had big plans for this year but covid kind of threw a wrench into those plans.

Why trade in your machine?
