2009 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Camo AP HD

Still one of the best selling ATV’s in Canada. Since 1998 Yamaha’s Grizzly has dominated the ATV food chain. For 2007 the Grizzly was redesigned and then equipped with the Industry’s first “Electric Power Steering”. For 2009, you can save a few dollars and get a “standard” version without the EPS.

Now available in the new Realtree AP HD camouflage.

Identical to the EPS Grizzly in every way but one. This new “standard” version of the Grizzly 700 offers you all of the same ground breaking features as the original, only minus the Electric Power Steering.

Loaded with exclusive Yamaha features such as the “wide-arc” front a-arms, 4-wheel disc brakes, fully automatic Ultramatic transmission and push-button On-Command 4-wheel drive system, that have made the Grizzly 700 so successful. While the focus remains on lightweight handling and lightening response, this non-EPS version simply comes with a little bit better price tag.

Features and Benefits:

The Grizzly 700 is powered by a fuel injected 686cc 4-stroke engine derived from the class leading Raptor 700R. It is fuel injected for easy starting and crisp throttle response, but has been re-worked for even more low-end torque to match this bear’s personality.

Increased power is nothing if it comes with a bunch of additional weight. Considering the Grizzly 700 can be as much as 150 lbs lighter than the competitors 800’s, this bear’s power to weight ratio offers some hefty advantages over some of the bigger and bulkier ATVs. Less weight has an effect on everything from handling and acceleration to hill climbing and mud prowess. Imagine if you will adding six or seven cinder blocks to the racks of this Grizzly, and you get the idea of how heavy some of those 800’s are!

Slowing your big-bore ATV down shouldn’t involve standing on the brake pedal while squeezing the lever with all your might. 4-wheel disc brakes combined with full-time engine braking means slowing this Grizzly down requires less effort. And since the front and rear brakes can be operated independently, you have more control over how you brake depending on the situation.

Push-button servo-controlled “On-Command” system allows you to switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD – all with the simple push of a dash mounted button. Real 4-wheel drive when you need it. With Diff-lock engaged, there’s no need to wait for one wheel to spin. You have traction to all 4 wheels, immediately. This puts you in total control… you decide when you need 4 wheel drive… the machine doesn’t decide for you.

Revolutionary Ultramatic™ fully automatic transmission is the first automatic transmission to feature true engine braking. All four wheels receive engine braking in 4WD mode. Dual-range transmission with reverse. Low range has approximately 1.5 times the pulling power of high range.

A full tank of fuel carries a lot of weight with it. So we relocated the tank under the seat and the airbox up high where the tank used to be. This lowers the center of gravity which improves handling, stability and hill climbing capability. But it also raises the airbox reducing the chance of water and debris from getting into the engine.

While we moved the airbox, we also rerouted the V-belt intake and exhaust ducts, reducing the opportunity for water and debris to enter the V-Belt housing.

The wheel center does not change but allows for a shorter frame which improves approach/departure angles, and allows the use of stronger ball joints (more clearance).
