The pod mod is popular, I found it not so helpful, just loaded up on idle and used more fuel, the power tip helped and it sounds better! Aftermarket tires are a good addition. I think Yamaha has all it can get from this engine without aftermarket cam,piston,etc.

Exhaust, air box and fuel controller will get you about 5 more HP. Also look into the Dynatek CDI if you want a few more extra HP. Mine absolutely came alive!

Check out this review. http://www.atvtorture.com/reviews/review_dynacdigrizz700.php

How much did the CDI set you back? Did you still need the fuel controller in the machine? Thanks

Check out Fix Power Sports machined sheave. I'm not bragg'in, but it will have you eat'in bugs, cause you'll be grinn'in all the time .... it just makes that big of difference.

I did the clutch kit for larger tires, & that was OK. I ahve a K&N, & no pipe (yet) But the sheave ... well, I told some guys about it on another forum & at least six guys have bought them. Not one .. let me repeat that, not ONE bad review.
I also put a Hauck CDI box on for some other reasons.I hear the Dynateck is real good the the 700. Along with some fuel computer thing. (Mine is a 660)

Here's the link to Fix PS. Check it out.

Hey Gunny,
What is a sheave? How does it improve your performance. Sounds interesting.

Fritz's Grizz,
The sheave is the moveable half of your primary clutch or the forward portion of the clutch system where the belt rides.
It has to do with engagement. The machined sheave I got for my 660 was actually for a Rhino, becasue at the time, they didn't have any for a Grizzly. I figured with all the crap on my bike & the tracks, it was pushing close to 1000 lbs, about the same weight as a Rhino & my friend liked his on his Rhino, so I figured, why not ??

You can not believe the low end power it gives you. You hit the gas (with tires), the bike launches. It is just so cool. With the tracks it was a whole new machine. I would highly recommend this to any & everyone.

I didn't do a writeup at the time on this forum because I kept getting a "Timed Out" error ... so I bagged it. Maybe I should try posting it again.

later ...
