Got my first quad this past fall a 2011 Grizz 700 EPS, and now that spring is getting close I'm thinking about getting back to work on maintenance stuff. So couple questions...
1. What are some regular maintenance points that are done in the spring on these machines?
2. What are the regular maintenance points that are done every so many miles that I should look to do?
Other than changing out a torn CV boot and cleaning some crap out of the air intake foam in the fall I really haven't done anything to the Grizz. So not knowing its maintenance history I'm assuming it's due for everything...all fluids changed out etc.
Oh btw it's only got about 750 mi on it right now.
Thanks I'm all ears
New to ATVing and by the end of the summer I'll probably be heading out into some remote mountain regions for some back country trail riding, and I'm wondering just what kind of stuff/tools etc I should bring along in case of breakdowns/events etc. Short list so far includes a GPS (probably a Garmin Montana 650T), a tire repair kit, and courtesy of my Mom one of those satellite personal locator beacons, probably the ResQLink+ from ACR.
Any other suggestions for stuff that might come in handy?
I came across the stuff, it is used for keeping plastic trim on cars looking good. Despite the name it works on all color plastics. If your plastics start getting the white clouding from lots of scratches or the are just looking old and tired...this is the stuff for you. It's about $10 a bottle and you apply it with a simple clothe. Rub it in like lotion, Absolutely amazing stuff.
Here are some before and after pics. This is all scratches from my boots on the plastics above and behind the motor.
