– 2013 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4×4 Review
2013 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4×4
Man’s other best friend.
Industry leading durability and reliability set this big bore ATV apart from the competition.
Yamaha’s best selling ATV continues to dominate the food chain, packed with features like Ultramatic Transmission and On-Command 4-wheel drive, it’s no wonder this is the benchmark by which all others are measured.
A powerful, fuel injected 686cc powerplant is joined by Yamaha’s exclusive ultramatic automatic transmission and on command 2WD/4WD with Diff Lock to put this bear at the top of the big bore ATV food chain.
It starts with a powerful full-bore, fuel injected 4-stroke engine.
Add industry exclusive fully automatic Ultramatic transmission with Diff Lock, an On-Command 2WD/4WD system, independent rear suspension, 4-wheel disc brakes and digital instrumentation and you’ve got one of Canada’s best selling ATVs.
2013 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4×4 Key Features:
•The most powerful Grizzly ever: 686cc liquid-cooled, four-stroke engine and light weight has the best power-to-weight ratio of any Yamaha utility ATV.
•Yamaha Fuel Injection means instantaneous cold starts and optimal performance in nearly any condition, from sea level to 15,000 feet.
•Industry-exclusive, fully automatic Ultramatic® transmission is the most advanced drive system in ATVs. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and uses a sprag clutch for all-wheel downhill engine braking in 4WD mode and reverse.
•Three-position On-Command® In/Out 4WD feature lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD—all with the simple push of a button. Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff. Lock mode.
•Fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension with WideArc™ A-arms up front and five-way preload-adjustable shocks provides maximum ground clearance for unparalleled comfort over rough terrain.
•Trick digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter that counts the engine’s running hours, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.
•The Grizzly 700 boasts the lightest weight in its class at 648 pounds wet weight.
2013 Yamaha Grizzly 700 FI Auto 4×4 Features and Benefits:
•Raptor®-based four-valve combustion chamber design produces a potent combination of low-rev torque, instant throttle response and high horsepower.

•Straight driveshaft layout to the front differential eliminates U-joints for reduced friction, noise, vibration, and maintenance.
•Stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
•High-capacity aluminum radiator with fan-assist delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
•Automatic cam chain tensioner reduces engine maintenance and helps extend engine life.
•Five-position shift lever with H, L, N, R and P gates provides positive Ultramatic transmission operation.
•Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff. Lock mode.
•Sealed drive case keeps out water and debris to help increase durability.
•Oil access cover allows easy access to check oil level.
•WideArc™ front suspension A-arms provide outstanding ground clearance.
•Five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide a comfortable ride, whatever the load or trail conditions.
•Gas charged rear shocks offer a quality damping feel and excellent performance over a long period of time.
•Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes serve up consistent, long-lasting braking power under all sorts of nasty conditions.
•5.3-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling; there’s a 4.8-liter waterproof storage compartment under there, too.
•11.8 inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skidplate deliver maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.
•25×8-12 front and 25×10-12 rear Maxxis® tires provide responsive steering and handling along with excellent comfort.
•Rugged injection-molded front bumper and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.

•Hunter Green and Realtree® AP™ Camo models are equipped with steel wheels.
•Fenders have a textured finish that resist scratching and scuffing.
•Center-mounted, heavy-duty trailer hitch comes standard and can tow more than 1300 pounds.
•Large, specially designed seat is extra plush and widely contoured for all-day rider comfort.
•Dual 35-watt multireflector halogen bulb headlights with high/ low beams light up the night.
