Yesterday while out finishing my holiday shopping, I decided to take a detour out to Cycle Design in Philipston. I'll tell you my hopes for price like Blue got were higher than high. Once I pulled in, I saw the blue grizzly they just got in. Lonnie a salesman came out and greeted me right away. Nice guy, but I surprised when we were chatting that he didn't know the new King Quad had a diff lock. Anyways back to the story, we go in to talk prices, I meet Jayma the owner etc etc. Well he comes back to me with a pirce of $7199 plus $89 doc fee, plus $199 Prep fees and $380 for Mass taxes...And no winch deal. They said they were not participating. Well after going back and forth I got them to lower the quad to $6799 and the prep fees to $100 the rest were the same. I also told them I wanted a 60" plow, winch, and heated grips. Well those came back for a total of $1650. If I was to have them installed it was another $300. I asked them to total it up for me out the door. It was going to come to $9,600 or $9,300 unintsalled. She said she could probably do $100 better and thats it. I said thank you and I'll call tommorrow. They did tell me that Blue may have gotten his deal because a different promotion cold have been going on, such as $300 in accessories, that could have been applied right to the bike etc.

Being severly disapppointed at this time, I called up Yamaha of Putnam in CT. Told them what I wanted and they're prices were better. They have a blue one coming in (I'd take blue or red). $6999 for the Grizz with winch. Add plow taxes and heated grips, all installed for $100. Total comes to $8001. I could install the plow but would like the dealer to do the winch and that is $70 in and of itself. To me this price is more reasonable to Blues.

Crazy how one call got the price dropped $1600. Well now I called Keene Motorsports in NH and told them what I wanted and they're supposed to be calling today with prices. As well I'm going to call the two links that Whitmtns gave me above. I need to act quick if I want to take advantage of the winch and financing deals.

Doolin,

I am surprised that Jayma wouldn't work better prices with you. When I started looking for Grizzlys I called Russ at Yamaha of Putnam and he quoted me the same price as what you were quoted. Then when I called Cycle Design and they quoted me $6300.00 I couldn't drive there fast enough. I am simply amazed that in one years time Cycle Design jumped up their prices that much. As for the price of their plow set-ups go($1650.00 plus $300.00 installation) THAT'S INSANE! Putnam charged me $440.00 for the Moose plow set-up and the Warn winch from Rocky Mountain was $280.00 and another $45.00 for the mount so that's a total of $765.00 for the whole package! Where in the **** do they come up with $1650.00 PLUS $300.00 installation?? WOW is all I can say..

Ya know if you want to install the winch yourself I would be more then glad to give you a helping hand for it's really easy to install. I have a nice workshop with heat and you are more then welcome to come down and we could do it up for you. You would save money there by doing the installation and plow assembly yourself like I did, it's not hard. Also, I am sorry if I sent you on a wild goose chase up to Templeton. When you do come to Woodstock I will show you my paperwork for my purchase from Cycle Design and from what I was just reading on it, that there were no "incentives" or "promotions" involved. Anyway, I am truly sorry for your wasted trip and time.

No need to be sorry at all. The only way I could have found out was by going there. Me my pup like taking rides! Honestly it doesn't bother me at all that I went out there. I just want to get a decent deal. It is amazing that year later this whole bike would increase a $1000 from what you've paid. $900 if we install it. I wish I had my garage all set up, but it's still chuck full of my fiances grandmother stuff. So all my tools and such are still at my parents. I actually wouldn't mind isntalling this stuff, I think I'd be better off. It's a good way to know the bike. I'm waiting to hear what Keene has to say for prices. I don't think I'm going to go with either of the ones that whitmtns suggested. They're really really far away. I'll end up spending the difference in gas and travel time. I guess Yamaha of Putnam isn't a bad price if you add your winch and mounting plate plus the Grizz it's $6625 and I'd be paying $6999, thats only $374 dollars difference. Not too bad. They're close at least. I'll keep you posted.

Doolin,

I just got off the phone with a dealer up in New Hampshire. North Country 4X4 located in Lancaster, phone# 603 788-2595. I spoke with Jason and he quoted me $6593.00 out the door no tax involved. But they are way the **** up in New Hampshire and like you say, gas and travel time sometimes means alot.

Anyway, if you want to do the installation and assembly yourself, you just come on over and we will do it up real nice and neat like. I'de be more then glad to help you out and having a heated shop is a major plus when the weather is cold. Just let me know if you want to come over.

One thing to remember guy's, do you have to register the ATV in your state of residence. If so you probably will have to pay the sales tax when you go to register it, at least thats the way it is here. If you pay taxes where you bought it and that is lower than your state you will pay the difference to your state. Anytime you sell out of state the dealer can sell it without sales tax, all you do is put on the bill of sale they will register it in their state, and if they don't you covered your a$$ anyway. Used to sell them but the laws in your state may be different. Also here now they are issued a title from the state, can't hardly sell one without the title, in Michigan anyway. I know people that went to Canada to buy there machines because of price, what we found out then that the warrentee was no good in the states, as it was a Canadian machine, we could work on them but no warrentee charges could be sent to the manufacture. I know people that went to Wisconsin and bought their machines also, no tax, told the dealer they would register them in Michigan, never did, so if they get stopped by the LEOs, or the machine gets stolen, no title or registration, what then?

Marine,

When and if you relocate up here, you are also welcome to come hang out in the shop! LOL As for the snow goes,,, it's just about all melted away right now but I am sure being New England, that could change from day to day! I do hope you get some offers from Pratt&Whitney Aircraft or Electric Boat in Groton. They are two great companys to work for, and the benefits are real decent. Good luck and maybe one day soon you will be a "New Englander"!

Danny your right. If I buy in CT or NH I will still have to pay MA sales tax when I register the bike. The price from both dealers (even though one is in CT) includes MA sales tax. Which is 5% on the price of the bike. Blue, I'm taking you up on that offer most defiantely. I just checked mapquest and Lancaster NH is far up there too. And it's only $300 difference. Granted thats a nice amount to save, but add gas and time and lack of access to the dealer I bought it from in case of warranty and the little extra seems worth it. Especially if that $300 difference doesn't include the winch either.

Oh and marine, I hope you land a job up here too. New England is great. Some people hate some people love it. I personally love the change of seasons.

Doolin,

when you get your new machine and all the winch and plow stuff in, call me. I have everything we need to get the job done. Then after we install your winch, we will have to take a blast out in Breakneck to relax! I sent you a PM and gave you my home phone number on there. Call me anytime...

Marine, what kind of jobs are you looking for, in what field. There is a American Eagle regional repair facility close by here, and a Ship building facility about 100 miles away where they do some government contracting of navy and coast guard vessels, also they just launched the new staten island ferry that will go into service soon. And believe me you can play in the snow here, Marquette county, Michigan.

Doolin64,

My buddy tried working a deal with two dealers today who sell Honda's and Yamaha's. One of our other buddies is looking for a new Rincon. We figured if you also bought a Grizzly from them that you both may get a break in price. Well no such luck anywhere between the two dealers willing to negotiate prices. Randy even said that you are better off going with Yamaha Kawasaki ofPutnam. Anyway, we tried and let me know when you will be picking your new machine up.

Looks like I'm picking it up either Thursday or Friday. The only thing not in stock is the mounting plate for the winch. I'm going to get a roller fairlead too. The rubber mat for the top of the plow was $25 bucks. That doesn't seem too bad. How tall is the one you have Blue? Are there different sizes?

Doolin,

The rubber flap is 6" wide and the length will depend on the length of plow you buy. It does come with the headless bolts and nuts & washers. Like I said on the phone, if you knew where to get some conveyor belt material you could make one any width desired. I wish the Moose one was just a bit wider so the snow would definately not blow over the plow blade as much. If I could find a piece of conveyor belt I would make a new one up and transfer my bolt holes on a new piece. Someday in my travels I will find one someone threw out.LOL
