This will probably sound silly but I should know before tearing stuff up. Is it tough on griz stock tires to run them on asphalt pavement on occasion. We sometimes go short distances on pavement to get back on to forest service roads in the mountains out here in Arizona. Thanks for any ideas on this.

Don't worry asphalt will not do any damage to your tyres the stock tyres will get more beaten up on the trails, get them worn out as fast as possible as there are plenty of better tires out there that will give you a better ride and better riding experience than the stockers. It is legal to ride on the roads here in spain so our ATV's get plenty of ashpalt mileage!
Good luck GrizzlySpain

Riding on pavement will cause your tires to wear quicker. Try not to make sharp turns on pavement. Your rear end does not have limited slip so when you turn the inside tire will actually spin a little. The sharper the turn the more spin you get. If you want to test this theory, try riding on your lawn.
