And I have seen him hit his diff lock many times and it seems to never work, kind of intermittent for it to work. He may just have gotten a bad quad but both of his are the same, well he is down to one now as one crapped out (was an 08) granted he beat the piss out of them, but again I was right there with them on every ride and the old 800 always out shined them (maybe thats why he rips on Polaris, cuz he's jealous, LOL) All and all Grizzly's are good bikes, I am just pointing out things I have seen from experience and want everyone to know that all machines break regardless of make or model, I have even seen the supposed everlasting Honda's crap out too trying to keep up with us in the mud ...
Well I dont think they will ever have as many problems as my 850
2 times oil in air box
3 starting motors
bearing carryer snapped
frame broke
electrolyse when not in salt water
2 axles
upper rear a-arm broke

that's all in 1600 miles of riding the exact same as all our other bike and its the only one that brakes

Well my experience has been different, so good luck to you! Here is the group I ride with and those Grizzly's tip at least once a ride and the Red one is gone due to the front diff locking up and throwing her, 5 minutes after this photo was taken!! She was ok as she felt something was wrong and was slowing down! The blue one has had the front cv joints replaced and motor mounts (that could be from being tipped multiple times though, LOL)

Ah Contrary, I am talking his machine up, and it is keeping his string at the top of the new posts section! I have the exact same quad and love it! I wish him all the luck on selling it!

Love that color! Wish I would of bought an xp when I got my 500h.o. Your price does sound a little high even with it being in "like new" condition. Around here you can get one for around 9k. Good luck with your sale!
