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...😒

      Hey guys.  New guy here with my first Yamaha quad.  Traded for an 01' Kodiak 400 that needs some tlc.  It was running but idle is off, missing some hardware here and there, none of the lights work on instrument panel and front brakes didn't work were the main things that jumped out at me.  I drug it home and have started tearing into it.  Started with fresh oil change and flushed the dirty brown coolant and replaced with fresh coolant.  The carburetor is missing the side cover for the throttle cable and I don't see where I can buy just that cover without buying a complete carb, so went ahead and ordered a new one (hasn't arrived yet).  the Starter relay solenoid was crap and had to mess with it to get it to start half the time so replaced it.  I have a few questions as I'm going through this quad that I'll list below.
       
      1. It has a cut plug on wiring harness under the instrument panel.  Can anyone tell me what this plug goes to?  There currently is not a plug running to the 4wd indicator light on instrument cluster so I'm wondering if 2 of the wires are for that possibly??
       
      2.  Also in the front, there is a air duct under the rack and black plastic panel that runs down to the engine case.  Is there supposed to be some sort of cover or anything over it?  I looked online at parts diagrams and couldn't even find this duct or the duct that runs up by taillight in any of the diagrams.
       
      3. this fuel line on top left side of carburetor; is this what goes to the gas tank cap or is it just a vent line for carb?  Follow up question, where does the line that comes off of the gas tank cap go to?
       
      I'm sure I'll have many more questions as I work through this thing.  Thanks in advance for any replies.

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      Haven't got a service manual for this yet so I'm flying by the seat of my pants I made myself a shifter extension to go up by the gas tank took my foot shifter off to weld it and now when I put it back on I don't seem to be able to find neutral. Is there some asinine reason that you have to do something internally when you change or remove the foot shifter? It was a simple take off weld put back on and dog bite my pecker it's not working. I hope this is something simple I've done and that's something I need brain surgery for. Cheers fellas I know y'all will have the right answers
