The time has come to retire my 92 bayou 300, and get a new workhorse. I use my atv primarily as a workhorse for firewood harvesting and gold prospecting, though it does have to still perform standard ATV duties. I have decided that bottom line I must have locking diffs, power steering, and fuel injection. The 550 griz seems to fit that bill. I see that the suzuki quad runner 500 is equipped very similar, and is cheaper, but the grizzly just seems like a better made rig. I am not brand loyal when it comes to the best atv, so Im willing to hear any input on any of them. the 550-600 cc range is what Im looking at, though i would do the 700 grizz ps/fi model if I could justify the extra grand for 120 odd ccs. So, I turn to folks who actually own and have used them to get your input. Good bad or ugly. I dont want to waste 8 grand on a rig that isnt going to do what I need.
Thanks for any help folks and Merry Christmas!
