I own a grizzly 700 pulling 30 backs on 14HD rims with mudder clutch kit in it with 2mm shim mod dual 2" air box snorkels and a ehs bullet box with swamp series exhaust other then that everything else is stock and I beat the heck out of it every weekend and still haven't broken a axle or ripped a boot and I ride with a few friends that have brutes and there always broke down im always having to pull them back to camp the brutes just have way to many issues for me to even think about getting one I owned a praire 650 along time ago used it as a deer lease wheeler wouldn't even be hard on it and I couldn't keep a belt on it to save my life every other trip out to the deer lease it would smoke the belt or the axle boot would ripp or the timing chain would slip just to many problems in the Kawasaki group the cause you to walk more then you ride
It is some truth to every post on here thats why i have a griz and a brute, but i will say this i will put the griz over the brute for reliability 10 times out of 10. Pretty much every brute i ride with has sold theres or is trying to becasue its like 500 dollars to every ride.
I originally wanted a Brute bc i like power! But after buddies having constant problems with theirs and reading numerous horror stories i decided against it. Simple truth there is a reason that if you get on all the ATV facebook forsale sites theres 5:1 brutes forsale over any other bike. 2nd runner up would be honda 420 lol... I decided to go with a Grizzly 700 and im very pleased with my purchase! has given me no problems since ive bought it once i repaired all of the previous owners neglected issues. Now thats my .02
Just made the switch from an '09 brute to a grizzly 700 I know time has changed some things but my reason for changing was my brother had a 660 and no problems period and I had my share of problems riding in the same conditions. I really like the ride of the grizzly hands down and the shorter turning radius is great also. That's my .02 worth.
There is good and bad in all of them.I bought a 08 650i 3 years ago that was blowed up.With the advice of several people from this site Rmax and NKkawierider mostly i rebuilt this bike.I have not had a problem in 3 years.I went through several of the modification listed to help durability and i do my general maintenance.Since then ive worked on several other brands for friends and customers,they all got some type of fault.The key is to do your homework fix the problems before they become problems and ride doesn't matter what brand as long as your enjoying yourself.Preventive maintenance is durability.
Ok so all I have done to my bike is added a uni air filter, custom snorkel,custom oil cooler replacement and I have 27in silverbacks. I have notice that when I go into any gear I hear the bike like it is sputtering. One I give it constant gas it runs fine. Do I need a jet kit and if so what kind

I just bought a new '13 700 grizzly from what I've heard they are derated at first was just wondering if anyone knew when the get full power? I had an '09 750 brute and so far there are a lot of reasons I would never go back!
First post on this site, I've came here many of time for my quad and now I'm wondering if I could get some more help. I have a 2008 Yamha Grizzly 700 that I Mud Race (nothing professionally just in a 700cc and below single cylinder restricted modification class.) Recently racing and just going...
