Welcome to QUADCRAZY. If you can afford it, go with the Grizzly but the Kodiak is a great ATV as well and should be find for what you are doing. Years back, there were more differences like independent rear suspension. I believe with the late models it's really the difference in suspension and power delivery between the two. The Grizzly has more aggressive power and comfort built in. Check out the videos below. I also added the year range into your topic title.

Unless you're a hard core racer or otherwise obsessed with speed , any  quad  from  200  CC on up  will  give  you  plenty  of speed for trail riding.  My  old  '91  Honda  300cc 4x4  quad  will  hit  40  mph on the  flat  and level .  A  450  should easily get up to  50  or  more and probably  match the  700.  About the  only advantage  the  700cc would  have is in pulling power  or for plowing   heavy  snow, at a  higher  cost  for  fuel  in the bigger motor. For normal riding , the  450  will  be  more than enough

I agree with @davefrombc

I had a Kodiak 450 and it was great, fast, got through trails where other quads did not. I moved to a 700 king quad at the time because I wanted to comfort, bigger machine, and independent rear suspension. Today, you can get a lower model kodiak or grizzly and it will have these things. I would go to the dealer and sit on both and get a feel for them. Get a model with the third top light, seems the EPS versions have it. I miss that on my older grizzly and had that on my king quad which it looks like they removed on the king quads...😒

      Hello I am new to this site and I havea problem. I have a 1987 big bear 4x4 that will not spark. I tested pick up coil per repair manual and I tested my new coil both ok. It puts out 9 volts at the coil but It is reversed polarity. So when I hook my meter up to it she shows -9 volts while cranking. When I put a test light  on it it flashes. Being an electric system this should tell me something but I don't know what its telling me. I have yet to meet one i could not fix but this old girl has me stumped. Any help would be awesome. Thanks to all.

      Just got a '98 Yamaha big bear 4x4 in working condition (so far). Looking forward for some good information on this site about how to keep it alive.
