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.

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 $$$$$$ !

    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
