Hey all,
I was wondering how the Kodiaks behaves when ridden hard? I know there were revisions to the suspension and chassis in the 2014 Griz to help reduce body roll and the like. Does the Kodiak seem to stay planted and keep the driver comfortable when trying to really rip?

I think they do pretty well, although the Kodiak 700 is not quite as wide as the Grizzly 700. Good 6-8 ply radial tires and tightening the shocks helps with the roll and improves handling. If you ride real hard and want to push it to the limit, a Grizzly 700 might be a better choice.

Yea, I don't ride crazy all the time. more of a 50/50 split...just want to make sure the Kodiak can dish it out when I need/want it too. I'm sure the machine will do just fine as you say though.

Shouldn't be much concern in that area, i've been seeing mostly positive feedback.
