I don't have them but I did just order some CV boot covers from Yamaha. After reading in here and on a few other forums, the "torn CV boot" issue seems to come up alot. These boot covers should do the trick to protect the CV boot from being torn. I will let you know how they are as soon as I get them in and install them. I haven't decided if I want the shock covers yet. Still trying to justify if I really need them, but the CV boot covers I definately need for the type of riding I do, and the places I go.
I use shock covers on my Griz, I am not sure if they are needed, because the plastics are so wide (I also have overfenders) BUT THEY LOOK COOL and are fairly cheap. The only negative is that they collect river sand when crossing rivers!!
I am also looking for shock covers. It looks like we need to purchase ones that are over 9-10 inches long. I think that the Yamaha ones would prob work. I have a raptor and those front ones are almost 11 inches long, I might just try to use those and I know you can purchase them online. I just want plain Black and they are hard to find. I hope someone can help us out. Good Luck
Thats what im looking for also BB. Trying to find plain black ones, I see that Outerwears has some black ones with thier name in white that don't look to bad. The only thing is on their web site it states its for the old grizzly and on the front it lists it for front struts. Where are you guys finding them from Yamaha. I went on their web site and did not find anything.
Here are some links that might help, I might just get the Yamaha ones in black.

I have emailed to see the size of the Yamaha ones. I think the Raptor ones might work, I will let you know.
My wife made me 4 shock covers when I had the Kodiak. She used some black waterproof nylon material she got at Wal-Mart and you couldn't tell they were homemade. She sewed in some elastic material on each end and then sewed velcro into the sides to keep them closed. I would have her do it again for the Grizzly, but I didn't like the way they collected fine sand and small debris as Saul stated. I would always have to pull them off to clean off the shock really good and after about 6 months of that, I took them off and left well enough alone. They do look great on any machine however, but IMO no real need for them. Nevertheless, if you guys cannot find them for the Grizzly, ask your wife or someone who can sew to make them. I think the total cost for the materials was $14.00 and inexpensive to say the least. All I did was measure the length of the shock and the width and she did the rest. They came out MINT..
If you are still interested in shock covers, I just got back from the Yami dealer and tried out the Yami Blaster, Warrior shock covers on the Grizz and they fit great. I am in the process of buying those for my Grizz. Good Luck!!
PS There are also some on ebay in black neoprene, these might work also.
I bought mine from dennis kirk. they are moose brand and had lot's of different sizes and colors to choose from. the only thing is that the moose lettering got blasted off by the pressure washer, but who cares.
