    Hey everyone Just thought I'd say hey. I've owned a 2000 Yamaha Grizzly 600 for a while now, and I recently thought it would be nice to buy my wife her own quad so we could ride side by side instead of her on the back of my grizzly. I found a 1997 Polaris 300 Xpress that needed a bit of work...
