02 Prairie vs. 12 grizz 700

Recommended Posts

My good friend picked up a 2012 grizzly 700 with 20 hours on it for 5,000.00 it was a repo! The ride was smoother it felt lite in the front when turning my Prairie seems like a workout. Then it came down to you wanna run'em why not was my answer he was about a quad & 1/2 in front of me and said go and took off so I had to try and catch up & pass him and that didn't happen I caught up but didn't get by him. Round 2 he didn't get a jump start & my old Prairie took the win. I think the V-Twin engine just seems to have more torque over the single cylinder. I thought for sure he would win.

:yes:the V-twin in our prairies has more torque and a few more hp.. and it is alot more stable at high speeds in the woods and twisty trails .. it will also climb alot steeper hills with out wanting to roll over backwards .. it also has alot better engine breaking ..and will slide the rear around like a sport quad ..and do donuts easyer ... i have ridden both and still like the old strate axle prairie over any of the independant rear utility atv's .. the only draw back is less ground clearance ... but bigger and more aggressive tires even that out alot ... and if you add aftermarket exhaust and jet kit and do a clutch kit or clutch mods it will even hang with the bigbore 800cc machines in the woods and trails ..cause they are no ware near as stable at high speeds as our old prairies ...:laugh:

      If we had a dollar for every time the question “Which is really faster, the 700 or the 450?” shows up in our inbox, mailbox, or voicemail, we’d be putting this magazine together from a bungalow on a barely inhabited tropical isle named Quadhama.

      I'm going to check the valve clearance on my 2011 Grizz 700 for the first time and I'm also wanting to check the timing, but I'm not sure how to do it. What tool (light gun?) do I need for this job and how is it done?

      Feul pump went out. Replaced. At times quad cuts out like its not getting gas. Saw article on new pump needs to be calibrated. Told how to go into a service mode. Does not tell how to calibrate after going into mode. Can anyone shed light on this procedure.

      I'm wanting to run Shell Rotella T6 synthetic in the 700 Griz but I can only find it in either 0W-40 or 5W-40 weights, and the manual says it's ok to use everything BUT those weights...5W-30, 10W-30, 10W-40, 15W-40, 20W-40 and 20W-50.
      Would it be ok to use the Rotella 5W-40 or do I need to stick to what's specified in the manual?
