Thanks Xtreme grizz, are there any quirk things that i should know about my new grizz? what not to do etc? i plan on going over the bike real good before the first ride and definatly after as well, is there anything that i should be checking more than something else? I was wondering about some extended warranty as well? Did you get any? Should i bother? Thanks....Irv

Well as far as the extended warranty goes I did not get it. Im not a real big fan of extended warrenties. I thought about it but the Grizz has been out for a few years now and most of all the bugs are worked out of it in my opinion.

When I picked up our Grizzlys I did a quick once over of both machines real quick, lodded up and took off for home. The dealer I bought from was about 75 miles north of me. When I got them home is when I did a real good check to just make sure everything was right. One thing I did notice on mine (blue) is that my gas tank cover had some scratches on it. Called him up and he said that I can either bring it up or take it off my self and mail it to them. I decided to remove it myself and mail it. They paid the charges and got me a new one. Other than that I just checked the oil once on both before we took off on our first ride. I take a look about every other ride now just to be on the safe side, and about the same with the filter. Just recently installed the ProFlow Flange with K&N filter :)

Did not get much riding time in last year but we never really had any problems with them. Defently more riding planed for this year:)

The Grizz has turned out to be such a reliable machine that if you're at all mechanically-inclined and willing to work on it yourself, there's no need for an ext warranty. I think they're a joke... plus most dealers are incompetent anyway.

I've had my Grizzly apart several times, all the way into the transmission, and it's pretty straightforward. I will probably be tearing the top end apart next year to do a mild 686 kit since mine is burning a lot of oil, and I don't believe in leaving anything stock once you take it apart. :)
