08 Grizzly 700 vs King Quad 750

16 posts in this topic

Thoughts and Opinions either way. I would probably use it a lot for ice fishing and hunting along with some trail riding and some mudding (who can resist) and some general use around the house like plowing and such.

Thanks in advance

i was in the same dilemma last year and went king quad only because of the gas tank location and pull start and the king shifting just topped it off

Both great wheelers! The Kingquad has a third headlight,parking brake, and rear sealed wet brakes. The Grizzly has a little more ground clearance,a park selection on the shifter,and a bigger racks. My choice would be the Suzuki as the third headlight is nice and the rear brakes system is top notch. Can't go wrong either way.

Its honestly a toss up. I have ridden both machines and I would probably buy the KQ. I like how the machine handles and performs. The Grizz is a great machine as well. It is almost like comparing the same machines

I went through the same issue a few years ago with the King Quad 700 and Grizzly 660.

I went with the Kingquad and my buddy got the Grizzly. I really like my Kingquad, it has a great "sporty" feel to it. I would probably still go with the KQ.

I'd pick the Grizz but I'd get a 550. The 700 are nice but I found the size and feel of the 550 Awesome. The power is still there when you need it and when I rode the 700 and 550 back to back I couldn't even tell you the difference. The only difference I can tell you is the price tag. Go test drive a 550 Grizz. Its good for everything you need and more plus with the reliability.

Depends on how much power you really need. Me personally would never buy anything less than a 700

That's funny because it was not that long ago when a 500 was considered the biggest machine. Interesting how perceptions change. There really isnt anything a 700 can do that a 500 or even a 400 cannot. It just may do it more effectively.

I currently own a KQ750. Love the thing to death. Tons of power, speed when I want it, and all that other good stuff. But it has its downsides. The footwells/footpegs are junk, uncomfortable compared to the Grizz. I love the gauges and the 3rd headlight.

My close friend has a 08 grizz, sweet machine. The dang power steering is really nice, but I didn't need it, and I don't think I will until i'm a little older. But the gauges on there are in a weird spot, and I'm not a huge fan of the handlebars.

All in all, Ride them both, and whatever one you like, is the one. You'll find things that you like and dislike about both.

I do remember the days when a 500 was considered big. I have been on a 500 before where I was running out of power on a hill climb, thats pretty darn scarry and why I choose to have more power. No replacement for displacement!

Go with the Yamaha.When we fished up north this winter we had a Kingquad and a Yamaha with us. It was cold (-20)and the Kingquad would never start without a jump.

Anyone know if the power steering system on the Grizzly can handle snow tracks?

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
