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?

    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mount ads were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing..... 
    • I wax every exposed part of the string. 
    • BD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i wasnt good enough for a lakeside lot!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Is that you, or the back of BD then?
    • well, that picture he posted?????????? that was my boat and i was part owner of that dock if that tells ya anything!!!!!!!!! yea he's been there!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Ok but you told BigDave huh? Maybe he'll give it up?
    • Hi guys,   I am a beginner and just purchased a Matthew Halon bow last year.  However, I haven't waxed the bowstring and figured I should do it before this season starts.   My bowstring doesn't seem to have any colors on it showing where to avoid waxing it.    Can somebody explain or direct me to a video on where to avoid waxing on the bowstring of a Matthew Bow?  I know the part about rubbing the wax into the string good, but I am unsure which part of the bowstring to avoid waxing exactly.    Thank you. 
    • North of the cities.........................south of I Falls!!!!!!!!!!!!! west of st cloud!
    •   Come give me a north-south zone at least!
    • I am just an outsider looking in, so I have an opinion and that is all it is not fact. I have fished Mille Lacs quite a bit over the last 3-4 years.  The fishing has just gotten better. I don't know if it is because the fish really are lacking a food source or if there are just that many fish in the lake. This past Monday we were there to chase smallies. While we did do OK on the smallmouth we did happen to catch 6 walleye up on the rock in 6-12 ft. All looked fat and healthy. Seemed unusually shallow for this time of year. I don't care if this lake stays catch and release only. It is a blast catching 10-15 walleye over 20in in an afternoon. I just hope that "IF" the walleye population is on the decline that politics and special interests, including the tribes, will be able to step back and allow the lake to be managed as necessary to keep this incredible fishery alive. Just my opinion.
