    Yamaha Kodiak 700

    When Yamaha took the covers off the new 2016 Grizzly and Kodiak ATVs, you could be forgiven for being confused. Both are 708cc Utility ATVs and share much in common, but they are intended for very different buyers.

    Discuss at our Yamaha Kodiak Forum

    To help explain exactly what each ATV is designed for and the differences between them, Yamaha released a video featuring Travis Hollins, ATV product planning manager. We are eager to test out both models together, but until then check out the video below for some clarification.

        Yamaha YXZ SS Teaser

        After months of speculation, we now have confirmation – Yamaha is coming out with a Pure Sport UTV. Yamaha revealed this with a short teaser video released on June 4.

        While the video doesn’t give much away, it does show something moving very fast in the desert. We hear an engine humming and catch a brief glimpse of a UTV in a dust cloud at the end, before a graphic comes up that says “September 2015.”

          ATV Tire Pressure

          Tire pressure can play a key role in the traction, ride quality, and handling of your ATV.  It’s something that should be checked before every ride for safety and to help achieve optimum performance.

          Knowing what tire pressure to run begins with knowing the recommended pressures for your tires. For example, the Yamaha Raptor 700’s tires have a recommended operating pressure of 4 PSI, with a minimum pressure of 3.6 PSI, and a maximum seating pressure of 36 PSI. These numbers will vary from tire to tire and can be obtained by checking your owner’s manual for original equipment tires or with the tire manufacturer for aftermarket tires.
