dannyk,

The fairing is going to work mint for cold weather riding. I have been considering one for sometime now and wondered how it actualy looked on the machine. It looks great on your grizzly and maybe the fairing will be my next add-on. I only wish they made a blue version, the only colors I could find on the Yamaha website is red, black, and green. I wonder why they don't have a blue fairing, seeing that there are so many blue Grizzlys out there. When you ordered your red one did they give a choice for blue as a color? They list the price at $169.95 and I was wondering if you paid more or less then that? Thanks

paid the advertized price, had a 200 credit coming so I got the fairing and a thumb warmer, took care of the credit, but sure like the fairing, much better than the aftermarket wind screen they threw in when I bought the machine. Didn't ask about a blue one as I didn't need it. Have you talked to a yami dealer about blue? I would have bought a blue one in a heartbeat if they had one, had my choice of a red or green machine, so I took the red one.

dannyk,

Thanks for the info and I will have to give my dealer parts department a call. If they do indeed sell a blue version I will be purchasing one before the snow flys. We ride here year round and winter is my most favorite time to ride. My friend and I have talked many times of getting fairings and it seems like the key to keep the freezing cold wind off the face area. I always wear a good snowmobile helmet when I ride in the winter, but the wind still seem to cut thru. So with the combination of fairing and snowmobile helmet I should be all set. Thanks again.

This will be my first winter with an atv, have always had snowmobiles, generally the snow gets to deep to ride the atv until the sleds pack the trails.

You will have a blast in the snow with the Grizzly. The snow here can also get very deep and we usualy try and stay on top of packing the trail. Many times we have ventured out during a heavy snowfall just to pack the trails so the accumilation factor was in check. And I agree, the snowmobiles do a great job packing and once there is that hard surface it's almost as if you dont need to steer the quad. Just stay in the grooves and let her rip! I have a pull behind sled made by Moose that has an A-frame tongue that connects to the hitch. We usualy load it up with all kinds of gear and crap which helps to pack down snow. AHHHH winter, I just love that time of year!

I bought a blue fairing last year, wish I had a picture of it but.... I used it last winter and it makes riding alot warmer keeping the cold air from blowing directly at you.The only problem I had with it so far was I made the mistake of taping the allen key to the fairing during the summer and the paint peeled off when I tried to remove it this fall.{ it was stored in a cool garage } The fairings are just painted on and the paint will come off. I just called my dealer and he told me not to put any type of tape on the surface but we deceided to put a decal over the spot. Lesson to be learned here. I would buy another one in a second.

P.S. great when it raining also-- keeps the rain from beating on your front of your chest and soaking throught.

Bigstick,

Did you purchase the blue fairing from a yamaha dealer? I called my dealer here and he hasn't got back to me yet on the blue color one.

I appreciate the offer. I'm afraid my wife is going to want to try them on her Grizzly and then I will lose them as well. Luckily, she is too busy to install them. I'll be sure to post many pictures come Sept.

For us camo grizz owners I found that we can get the camo fairing, but only from yamaha dealers of Canada.
