got to love a 700 grizzly. Not the fanciest, most powerful or faster unit but you can pick up a stripper for under 8k and theres just not a more bullet proof atv made in my opinion. It a unit that does everything well. They keep making noise about replacing that 700 single with a twin but I sure hope they don't. I just love the low end grunt that motor has and it will run forever. Had a 700 raptor. Ran the snot out of it when I was in my early 40s and had a body. Ran it for 4 years and gave it to my son in law and he beat it and his kids are still beating it. thing still runs like a sewing machine. In a grizzly I don't think you would EVER wear it out. Best transmission in the business too if you ask me. Id never have another 4 wheeler you have to shift.

I wouldn't want any less of a unit when I put the 60 inch Moose plow on the front for pushing snow.

I do remember when I was a young and would jump an 8 foot creek with my Banshee and run it through the gears on the back wheels. I try real hard not to fall off of anything these days.....you'll get old once too!

Is a Yamaha ATV as good as a Yamaha outboard. Had two Yamaha outboards and no mechanical problems with either. ATV experience has only been Honda.

ive had 6 yamaha atvs and have had exactly zero problems with any of them. There as good and as reliable as a honda but with a bit better fit and finish. That's says a lot because Hondas are about bullet proof too. In my opinion theres only those two choices and you wont go wrong with either.
