I used to own one of those Grizzlys. In 4 wheel drive, you can't hardly even tell you're on snow, even uphill. You can't hardly make them slide. But in 2 wheel drive, they're pretty fun. I'll have to say in the utility line, Grizzly's got Honda beat in the steering/handling and in the ride quality. They really have the power, too. You can pull anything with those things, even up a big steep, muddy hill. You can't beat that Ultramatic transmission, either, for an automatic. Even though it's not a Honda, I really like the Grizzly.

LOL. Yeah, I sold it and have a Honda now. But I do still have another Yamaha. LOL. A 350 Warrior. I hardly ever ride it, though. I have owned plenty of Honda's and Yamaha's both, and I'll have to say when it comes down to it, I'd rather have a Honda. I have rode a lot of trails since I first started riding in 1984, and a Honda has never made me walk, yet. I do a lot of riding on trails for miles and miles, by myself, so I can't afford to ride anything that will make me walk. A Yamaha would be OK as long as you have someone riding with you that can tow you home. LOL.

A yamaha is bad for the pick up coil going out. 99% of the time, if they don't fire, that is what's wrong with them.

My Warrior's in pretty good condition and it runs pretty good too, but I've already had to put a pick up coil on it. I think I have had to put a pick up coil on about every Yamaha that I've ever had.

Yeah..Yamaha likes to put those pick-up coils down around the stator, especially on their bikes like the 650 V Star. They last for about 15 to 20k miles and are a pain to change out. The hot oil tends to cook them over time.
