Just purchased an 04 Green Grizzly. I picking it up next week. I've never owned an ATV before. I'm really looking forward to getting it. I almost bought a Rincon but changed my mind last minute to go with the Griz.

In looking on the web site to learn as much as possible I came across atv owners.com. Looks like a nice site with nice people with good information.

I look forward to learning more. Thanks!

Orange Whip,

welcome to the site, you will find some great advice and help in here. I am sure you will love your new grizzly as much as we here all do. The grizzly is a great machine and you have made a very wise choice. When I was shopping around for a new machine I could have bought any one out there but I chose the grizzly and I have never looked back once second guessing my choice. So far I am very happy with the machine and I know you will be also. Congrats on your new toy and enjoy!

Hey welcome to the site Orange Whip.

At the time of my purchase I had two Honda Rancehers and was looking at the Rincon also, but it seemed with the features and for the price you could not go wrong with the Grizz. I have loved it ever since my first ride..lol Have fun with it and ride safe.

Orange Whip,
I have owned an '03 250 suzuki ozark, '04 350 Bruin 4x4, '04 400 Kodiak 4x4, and now the baddest bike around - 2005 Yamaha Grizzly 660. It's awesome and when you compare its ground clearance, weight, agility, and overall performance there is none better for the price. I have ridden a 350 honda rancher and rancher 4x4 and a 450 foreman 4x4. They are good bikes but slow as molasses with no ground clearance. Don't fret, you did the right thing.

Be carefull though. Since this is your first atv, watch out, it's very fast and dangerous if you act stupid. My cousing flipped his right on top of him and has been in rehab for a year. Just be carefull.

JPGrizzly,

Great advice and I couldn't agree more. A first time novice rider should beware of the power on the grizz.

Orange Whip,

When you get your new machine and start riding, just do yourself a favor, and take some time to get use to it(don't try and go balls to the walls). Once you get some hours and miles under your belt then let'er rip! The grizzly is a powerhouse and if you aren't careful injuries can happen easily and unexpectedly. Ride safe and enjoy

Thanks everybody! I'm really pumped. I'm gonna take it easy for a long time coming.When I made the order for it I had no idea how fast they said the Grizz would go.

To get the full potential out of her are tires, shocks, air cleaner and a carb rejet the thing to do or should I simply enjoy it how it is and save some fun for the future. Speed is really not my concern although I'm sure many have said that.

Thanks again!.

Welcome Orange Whip!

Hope you enjoy you Grizz as much as I have. But be careful! It can be more than a handful.

Orangewhip,

Congrats on the new bike, I know you'll have a blast.

I've only had mine out twice so far and I can't wait fot this weekend to hit the trails again. As mentioned above, take it easy for awhile. Its sometimes hard to do if you ride with others that are more seasoned riders.
