Awesome! I just checked this thing out on yamaha.com. Looks awesome, I used to have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak that looks very similar to this with the exception of the plastic. I loved that machine, it was awesome. This thing is like a hybrid cross between a utility and a sport quad. Should be an awesome ride, let us know how you like it. :D

She liked it allot!!! However, she was a Bit Intimidated by the Large Size(Kinda like me)LMFAO!!!!

She logged about 60 miles on it....Her and I went out to the Back area Frequently...She Wouldnt climb any hills like she would on her old Bike...She said she wasnt used to the bike yet and didnt feel comfortable so I didnt Push the Issue...I just wanted her to have fun and she did....I Must confess though.....I did Ride the Damn thing....and Here is my Review...

Out in the Flats(Beach, Sand Highway, ETC.) it gets up and Goes pretty well....However, I felt like I needed to Shift all the time..I never felt like I hit a "Powerband" and I lost my Sense of Speed...I found myself Second guessing if I had the momentum to make it up a Hill..I did not like that Feeling....A couple of times I had to Turn around before the top...Me not being a Quad Rider and it being a 550 LB machine wasnt Easy...LOL!!! In Two Wheel Drive going down hill with no Accelerator was pretty KEWL...It Decelerated and didnt really need to Brake.

I also tried out the 4X4 part of it too....I got Stuck Immediately...Thank god for Reverse...Did I mention this Freakin thing is 550 LBS??? Im not impressed with the Limited Slip Diff. I think if it had a Locker I would have been able to Pull....Or maybe if it wasnt some Soft Sand it would have done ok....Ill tell you what though....Going down a Nice Dune about 1/4 to 1/2 throttle then let off the Gas in 4X4 isnt cool....The damn thing Decelerated so fast the Front end almost Buried itself almost throwing me off the Front...

All in all,,,Its a Good Machine....I was able to take the Garbage out with it...I was able to Take the Dog for a Ride on the Beach....I was Able to Actually Drink my Coffee, Ride, and look at Bikini's Joggin Down the Beach at Sunrise....That right there was worth the Purchase price....LOL!!!!

My sportsman 700 (closer to 700 lbs) has an engine braking system that took a long time to get used to also. I learned (I'm sure your wife will too) not to let off the gas as fast. If your at 1/4 throttle slowly let off, rather than instantly no throttle.

quick question:

with your push button 4x4, as your riding and you push the button, say going around 30 MPH, does it switch right away? or does it wait till you decelerate to activate the 4x4?

Per the Manual......If I remember correctly.....You can NOT Swith it into or out of 4X4 at speeds more than 3 MPH....Hope that answered your Question....

YBB........I hide it in the Hauler.....I let her park it in there with my Trike just as long as there is no possible way they could ever Touch each other:wink:

Well,,,,,Its a Sport Utility......So for an Automatic it is fast enough to do what we need it to do.....I sure isnt as powerful as my Buddies Griz......However,,,,For Tight Tech Trails, Open Dunes with some Climbs in the middle it does Great!!! Very Nimble....But the Freakin thing is HEAVY!!!! I ride it(Yes,,,,You read that right) in the mornings when I am camped at Pismo Beach.....Its kinda neat to Throw the dog in front of me and Sip on a Cup of Coffee while Cruizing down the beach:wink:

      Here's the deal... I'm a first time atv buyer and have been studying hard all aspects of buying and evaluating these things for a used purchase. Now after months of looking everywhere I finally found a local private seller through word of mouth that may be offering a hell of a deal. Story is...
      Guy's got a 2012 Yamaha Griz 550 w/ EPS with 2900 miles and 250 hours on it and hes asking $4900. Says he got it from NPA? in Cincinnati for $4400 and paid $125 to ship it. After new tires, brakes and oil he says he's got $5000 into it coming from a dealer-only wholesale auction. I've only got $4500 to spend and really stressed that and he says he'll sell it to me if the guy coming on Friday doesn't pay the full $4900 price he's asking.
      So yeah fairly excited about the prospects here. This one blue books for something like $5500-$5800 retail.
      But I'm still a little too wet behind the ears still to be confident about evaluating these things used so I'm cramming as much info as I can before I go take a look at it. So don't want to get burned.
      So couple questions...
      1- I've seen some with more and less miles than the 2900 this one has. But have been taught it's not so much the mileage as how they were put on. Anyone have insight about this specific model with almost 3000 miles and 250 hours on it?
      2- Are there any special problems the 2012 550 EPS Griz has that I should be looking out for?

      New to the forum & ATVs. Was hoping to get some help understanding:
      1) Manufacture Brand distinction, like 1's that are liked vs. loathed. Out of likes is there a big difference between Polaris & Kawasaki, etc.
      2) Looking at an older ATV (2005 Suzuki 700), and was wondering with all of the additions/upgrades to the later models, what are the biggest features in a newer (but used) model that I might want to consider that would deter me from buying a 2005?

      Hi
      I'm looking into buying a new quad and so far I've narrowed it down to the Polaris sportsman 500 and the Honda foreman. I'm leaning more toward the Honda because my last quad was a 94 Honda fourtrax. But I like the sportsman to because as I understand the military uses them and I know I can USALY trust something that's mill spec. Just an FYI most of what I'll be using this for is trail riding and maybe some hunting. Any help would be very much appreciated.

      A man entered the bus with both of his front pockets full of golf balls and sat down next to a beautiful (you guessed it) blonde.
      The puzzled blonde kept looking at him and his bulging pockets.
      Finally, after many such glances from her he said, "It's golf balls."
      Nevertheless, the blonde continued to look at him for a very long time deeply thinking about what he had said. After several minutes, and not being able to contain her curiosity any longer, she asked, "Does it hurt as much as tennis elbow?"
