2009 Yamaha Grizzly 550

11 posts in this topic

Go to Yamaha's HSOforum and check out the all new 550 Grizzly from Yamaha! Power Steering and fuel injection with a new 558cc engine! Sounds good to me.

No wet brake, or backup pullstart that I saw on it though? The 08 Kodiak has a 2" receiver and a rear wet brake systtem I thought they should of used on the 550.

That SE paint is sweet!

I think they did away with the pull-start last year or maybe even 2007 models, and rightfully so if you've ever tried to pull the rope on one unless the FI's pull over easier than the 660 carbed models. Fruitless....

I don't understand why they don't have a receiver hitch either. They should have added that for 2009 if not even last year.

You got that right. I didn't see the LE at first until I saw your post. Then I had to go look.

Another nice thing is they call it a 550 and it actually displaces more cc's than that. Unlike how many other machines that displace far less than they're badged (including Yamaha's Wolverine 450).

I can see the base model 550 being Yamaha's top seller.

Wow that is my atv! as soon as i get my john deere paid for i will be jumping on this. reason no wet brake is the went with dual hydralic which is what is on the 700. dual versus single wet. I like it!

Exactly what they needed in their lineup isn't it.???....

Look at that compression ratio. With EFI that will be a quick 500 class atv.

It's quite expensive for a 500 class atv, thought I read it was only $800 cheaper than the 700. Should fill a void in their line up though.

Yeah, I think Can Am started the ridicuously priced atv craze. Arctic Can't trumped them with the over $10,000 Thundercat. Now Yamaha figures they might as well get in on the $$$$$$ !

    • Like I said Dave I think you are correct.  But this is a different election.  So your vote might matter.  I also wonder who the Liberal Tribune is actually calling if that is the one you want to hang your hat on.
    • Sorry but if Hillary wins I will not get what I deserve.  Everyone who voted for her or anyone besides Trump gets what they deserve.
    • I could care less if Johnson changes his mind.  I think you're  trolling in the wrong lake if you've ever seen me post about any candidate changing their mind.
    • How  big is the lake and what kind of weeds are most prevalent? 
    • I think we can thank our coach, the D will not lay down to anybody. We have made to MVP quarterbacks look like T-Jack lol. What a fun team to watch, is it sustainable? Only time will tell but I tell you what, nobody wants to play our D in the post season. That's what I'm excited about.  If Trent Dilfer can do it, we can do it. 
    • After that performance? Even the extremely biased Brietbart poll shows Trump losing that debate: Who won the debate polls: CNN/ORC - 62/27 = Clinton +35 PPP - 50/41 = Clinton +9 NBC/SM - 52/21 = Clinton +31 Gravis/Brietbart - 48/43 Clinton = +5 Reuters - 56/26 = Clinton +30
    • Nice design, cant wait to see it completed...    
    • So, for Y'all that are blowing RNT and Zink calls, how do you decide what to get? I'm in the mood to pick one really good goose call and one really good mallard call.  I looked at the $100 plus calls in the boxes at the C store but am leary of just pulling something off the hook based on a model name. Any suggestions for someone who mainly hunts in MN only for waterfowl? A good woodie call should be considered too. I'm still using some old Haydell calls, and Canada Hammer, Quack Head, etc..  Thanks
    • How have sturgeon been up there? Haven't been able to fish much (helping sister with hew wedding that was last weekend), but I do have Friday off and I'm thinking of heading up there to give it a go.
    • The final item on my list is to create a fold down bed. I have the aluminum bought and cut and have a friend using the tig to put it together. I plan on using webbing across the top and will buy a 4" mattress from clarkfield outdoors. Here are the designs, I will add pictures when I have it completed and mounted.
