    Hello All, just wanted to share my experience with my '08 grizzly. Today was the first time I have ever checked my intake and exhaust valves, since I bought my machine. I currently have 3200 miles on it and both of my intake valves were tight. They were supposed to be between .09-.13mm, mine was...

    My Grizzly needed an idle adjustment the speed being too high and was 'clunking' into gears. This occurred after using some old but clean fuel when fuel ran out. If I turn the plastic idle knob clockwise one or two turns, the engine coughs and stops. Turning it back to its original position and...

    Does anyone know how to correctly adjust the rear brakes on a 2008 450 Grizzly? I have found the brake assembly and done some adjusting but I think the brakes may be seized or rusted due to not being used. I also suspect they were never adjusted correctly from the dealership. I hope this is not...

    I needed to check my valve clearances so I figured I would shoot a little video of it. I was a bit of a mush mouth, and didn't film the whole procedure so I will add a write up with all the specs under the video. Hope you guys enjoy it! To begin checking/adjusting your valves, you should have...

    Can you adjust the shifter? It seems to get harder and harder to shift every time I ride her. Sometimes the Reverse light or Park light won't go on even if I rock it. I wish it would shift eaiser. Thanks Jake

    I have an '05 660 Grizzly with 1770 miles. I get some squeaking from front wheel during slow speed turn. When I pulled front wheels, both brake pads are in contact with disc. Right wheel can barely be turned by hand. Left wheel difficult to turn, but better. When brake lever pulled both...

    Valve adjustment Hell Grizzly Riders, I’m a little less than 3 hours away from the 20 hour service on my 09 Grizzly 700 EPS. I was wondering if anyone here has ever done their own Valve adjustment. Also does anyone have a Maintenance book with the Valve specifications? Or is it a job I should...

    I am going to tackle adjusting the valves on my '03 Grizzly 660, as a possible fix for the sputter/backfire through carb/cold start issues that I have been experiencing for quite a while. It is overdue for the adjustment anyway, & who knows, I might just get lucky & solve my other issues during...
