My 08 griz 700 does the same thing too, i looked on the forums and they say it goes away. It seemed to be a little better when i put on the power tip from that spark arrester.

Kev, my '07 700 did that from the start as well, only does it on occasion now so I'm not worried about it. How many km on yours? Mine has 3700km and seemed to do it less the more miles I put on.

There is a "pod-mod" you can do to help eliminate it. It adjusts the fuel mixture from idle to about 1/4 throttle. Most are lean from factory and run hotter and have stalling issues. You can adjust the mixture through the digital readout. I've heard certain 700's you can't do the mod to and others you can. I've yet to do mine, but it's fairly easy to do. Check this forum out, lots of great technical advice on it.

Pod mod for European models (not sure what classifies European):

Lately mine has been starting to have a hesitation when rolling on the throttle especially after decellerating. Found a fix for that also, I only found mine on Saturday evening when it was dark. When it hicupped I could notice a red flash from the speedo. The reverse "r" light was momentarily lighting. What happens is the reverse switches go bad and it thinks it's in reverse and activates the rev limiter. There's a new updated part number for the switch from the dealer.

Any of you 700 owners done the cheap clutch kit yet? I've been meaning to try it on mine since I've got 26" mudlites and find the low end performance is poor. There's an easy/cheap mod for the clutch where you use 4 (out of 8) weights from a 450 Kodiak. They're lighter so the engine has to rev a little higher to get the same upshift, giving you better low end performance while taking just a little top speed out of it. I would prefer a lot lower bottom end and less top end for the riding I do.

That european pod mod works on the 08's and 07's that can't do the pod mod on their pod.

I think i am going to check out that cheap clutch kit, most of my riding isn't above 80-90km anyways

Kev, mine did that for a while, and does when your full throttle, then hit the brakes suddenly. My friend Calys bike stalls sometimes too, 07 Grizz. and another gal that comes riding with us has an 08 Grizz.....and it also stalls sometimes. So im not so worried about mine anymore. as long as it keeps starting.

Trust the Dealer?? That’s funny they are refusing to admit that there is or ever was a problem. The head serviceman at GA Check Point said they have never heard of this problem and in the same breath that they will not cover it pass the warranty which is quickly coming to an end

contact Yamaha Canada as soon as you can and they are just passing the buck and i bet after the warrentee is gone they will magically find a svc Bltn.

I took a quick look on the net and there are plenty of folks that bring this up so i would say that GA is Full of shit. Phone Langley.


BTW what is the fuel consumption on one of those for a whole days rideing?

On Saturdays ride (389km) I used a total of about 40 litres. I think I worked it out to roughly 28mpg.

And If you have warranty Kevin, I'd bitch hard about it. My local dealer did the same to me on some little problems. He actually said "break it will ya, then I'll be able to fix it". Typical warranty (flat rate) problems, they don't get paid to diagnose the problem, just to fix it. Never did find my squeal or high speed shake. Squeal went away but shake is still there.

I'd print out the pod mod fix and ask them to do it. If it richens the mixture then they don't have to worry about a melt down, only if it leaned it out.

If yours is sputtering or the occasional miss at 1/4 throttle then I'd do a night ride and watch the cluster for the "r" lighting up momentarily. That's the reverse switch which is updated.
