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

      I have a yamaha big bear 400, tested all fuses and relays. When I turn on key I get nothing, no neutral light or headlights. Could it be the key switch bad?

      OK, sooo  I finally did the old skid plate and screen removal to clean out my oil sump during an oil change...  This bike only has a couple thousand miles on it.  Runs like a top still...  Very few issues over the years after buying it used.
      But boy I wasn't expecting to see this!  Piece of a circlip, stuck up in the screen, and a another shard of metal and maybe a piece of gasket material.  Nothing in the oil but that...  Pristine otherwise, and still runs like a top.  Always has.
      Soooo, is it a wrist pin clip?  That's the only thing I can think of like this that could end up in there.  But definitely wanted to throw it out to guys that have seen the innerds of these more than I have.
      The valves on this thing are still within the factory spec even.  Been a really good lil workhorse...
      Any other ideas?

      Friday evening went riding, rode for a good hour or so everything was fine. I went to take a short ride to the restroom (less than 100 yds away) and all of the sudden everything flickered and then just died out. Accompanying the problem I noticed the killswitch completely locked up. Once daylight hit took the killswitch apart to find it had shorted out and melted the plastic inside. Has anyone else had anything similar to this and if so what did you do to fix the situation? I have a new killswitch on the way to replace the obvious problem but was wondering could there be a bigger issue at hand. We tested with a voltage meter to make sure everything was still getting power from the battery and as far as we could tell it was.
      Any advice/info would be GREATLY appreciated.
      Thanks.
