Sounds like someone got a lemon? I have a few friends that have the Grizzly 700 and have no problems with them at all. Cold weather starting happens with any brand. It's not made to handle great. It is after all a full utility. Three axles in a year sounds like either improper maintainence, neglect, or abuse to me.

Not lemons at all. Just POS's. The Grizzly forums are full of these exact problems. Yamaha acknowledged the stalling issue and weak axles, wouldn't put out a recall and covered them under warranty for the 6 months. After the warranty was up, we were told we're on our own now. It's not made to handle great? It don't handle at all. Regardless of what bike it is and the speeds they go, it should handle some what decent. Every other ATV does. Cold weather starting isn't with every other brand either like these things. -5 and they won't start. All my bikes start in -40 up here. Our 04 Yamaha Kodiak has 38000 miles on it and starts in the -40. KFX700 has 31k and starts too. Here's a -40 day and the Grizz needed heat to start. Is that all you did was 2200 in 15 months? I have 17000 on my Gade and it's 13 months old. My 700xx has around 5500.
