King quad 750 Grizzly 700 and Rubicon 520

Recommended Posts

Hi guys I'm in the market for a new ATV.  I narrowed my choices down to King quad 750 Grizzly 700 and Rubicon 520,  I own a 2006 500 Rubicon right now and I like the reliability and power for plowing.  However it is not a capable ATV.  When quading with other guys it falls short with ride quality and ground clearance.   I also have a 500 King Quad 2015 which I like and will keep it for my wife.  It is very strong and reliable also.  However my plan is to sell my Honda Rubicon and replace it with a 2020 of one of the these mentioned above.  Can anyone give me their take on one or all of these machines and why you picked what you picked?

I have had a string of Grizzlys, starting with a used 660 back in about 2006.  I then had a new 700, then another and another and another.  I have found them very reliable.  Older 700s seemed to have very weak CVs, which wore out quickly rather than breaking.  I also seemed to go through a lot of wheel bearings.   I never felt the 700s were as well made as the 660s - thinner plastics etc.. The last Grizzly I had was a late 2015 Twin-Cam model which seemed to have had the CV and bearing issues resolved.  I know the CVs were bigger.  I think they stopped the twin-cam engine and went back to the original 700, though I do not know why.  I now have a Polaris Sportsman 1000XP, which feels less well made than the Yamahas but is much more powerful, smoother and seems to ride much better over rough ground.  I only changed as I wanted an EU homologated (road use) quad and Yamaha don't sell one.

Good luck

Chris

      My 2014 750 king quad stalls sometimes when I touch or turn the handlebars,the problem has gotten worse,my machine has 475 miles and is only trail ridden,I have a new factory battery and i have 14.2 volts when the quad is running and 13.3 on the battery when not running,also using a multimeter there is no change in volts when turning the bars until it does stall,If I pull the 40 amp power steering fuse it will not stall.......I've been told its the ECU,Hate to buy one if thats not the problem,but its kinda leaning towards that,,,,,need some opinions.

      I am working on a friends 2006 Suzuki LT-Z50 that they purchased not running. I took apart the carb to rebuild it and someone had already been in there... They really destroyed the Air/Fuel Mixture opening in the body of the carb.. It is in no way repairable.
      I have not been able to find an aftermarket carb to fit this model.
      Does anyone know if an aftermarket carb is available?
      Thanks for any help.

      Ran it out of gas last month... Works fine for 3 or so days then refuses to start.... Changed out the sparkplug and it will run for 15 or so seconds before shutting off.... Cleaned out the fuel system and injector and it misses when idling as well as shutting off at idle every so often... It is giving me no other issues and sounds and runs fine while riding... Only issue is cutting off at idle.....
      Ideas anyone??
