I need a grandpa quad, Looking to pull the trigger on a Yamaha Grizzly 700 2008 Electric steering, fuel injected. 133 hr's 1700 miles.
Any first hand experience or things that I should look for?

I have the `09 version. Bought brand new. Most reliable machine I have ever owned. The '07 and '08 had problems with the stator overheating and going bad. as far as I know you could get the ubdated cover with better cooling under warranty. Check if the previous owner updated already. The older displays had a tendency to shit the bed if left with a dead battery for a long(ish) time. They are costly to replace, so if all you see on the display is a big E for error, be careful.

Cool, Thanks for the heads up on the display, I read up on the Stator, looks like it is an oil flow issue caused by some stiffeners in the housing blocking flow causing heat and cooking the stator. It also looks like the machines with issues were beat on pretty hard. Looks like a new HD stator and a little dremel work or a new housing. Not a deal killer.
I also read the roll over valve sticks causing the fuel tank to pressurize, red neck fix is a riding lawn motor fuel filter fits perfectly ditching the roll over valve.

So the deal on the Grizzly did not work out. I got impatient and picked up a New 2019 Suzuki King Quad AXI 750.
