Well lets see, the Grizzly 700 has about the best handling chassis of all 4x4 ATVs, so lets go with that chassis, and put a set of Elka shocks on it. Then put a Yamaha R1 motor in the Grizzly chassis!

I've got a Yamaha FZ-1 motorcycle, which has the R1 motor in it, and I have to say that that is the all time best motor I have ever used. Super smooth and tractable power that is spread so wide in the powerband that it is increadible. It will break the speed limit on the freeway, ... in first gear. And it will go from 20 mph to 160+ mph in one gear (6th). You could literally leave it in one gear all day long if you wanted to, and it would lend itself very well to a CVT transmission application. The power below 4000 RPM is smooth and torquey, and never stalls. From 4000 to 8000 RPM it is very strong, but still easy to manage. From 8000 to 12000 RPM, ... Oh My God, better be hanging on for dear life. That would be perfect for a sport 4x4 ATV. You could still do the technical terrain at low to mid RPM, but you could also take it to the dunes and pull up to the hillshooting hill, and when you wound it out it would tear up that hill like you wouldn't believe.

So thats what I want, a Grizzly with a REAL motor in it.

well since its hard to find work for me. id like to start my own small bussness. if it was possable and i had the money id like to own a polaris sportsman. newer one than i have now. not shure on engine size. but id want it to be set up for work. id want a belly mower, pull behind mower, a sprayer with a large spray width and also be able to adjust the width for smaller areas. id also like either a power v-plow. so i can adjust the plow to the left, right. v shape either way, and up and down all from the seat. or a snow blower. not the kind where the motor is in front. i want the motor in the back. i might evon settle for a ranger. this way i can have a cab and heat for the winter.

I just built my dream quad. I used a DS650 Baja chassis, since they have the best suspension, & put a 1000cc Yamaha Fz1 engine in it. I can putter through the woods at 5mph all day, pull a deer out of the woods, pull a trailer, or I can blast down the open trails at well over 120 mph. I put the engine in the proper place, so I didn't have to extend the swing arm.

There are a few on youtube. I used the DS650 chassis so I didn't have to worry about it twisting, & so I could have all of the suspension the DS offers.

Ive got simple needs really...

2010 Can Am Outlander MAX 800R EFI XT-P.....even comes with a decent factory winch already installed. Add a snow plow setup and heated grips.....done.

This would be great for trail riding with the kids, as its one of a few ATVs designed for a rider.

i'd start off with a honda foreman rubicon. then up the engine size to around 600 - 650 cc. add a locking front diffrential option, and add EFI. done. the ultimate workhorse IMHO.
