Post Moose Utility Division Grizzly 700/550 Rear Bumper Review

Moose Utility Division Grizzly 700/550 Rear Bumper Review.



I have been looking at adding a rear bumper to my Grizzly 700 when I came across an offering from Moose Utility Division. After talking with Kyle of Moose Utility Division I ordered their rear bumper for the Grizzly 700/550.

Shipping was super fast, and the packaging was first rate. The whole thing was wrapped in bubble wrap, and all associated hardware was in a separate clear bag. The bumper is made of 1 5/8th inch tubing, and covered in a heavy duty black wrinkle finish. The overall look and finish matches the Yamaha heavy duty bumper I have on the front very well. As matter of fact the wrinkle finish on the Moose bumper is a bit smoother, and I think it looks better.

Install is very straight forward. Remove the 2 rear bolts securing the rear rack to the rack supports. Slide the tabs on the bumper between the rack and the rack supports and install the 2 supplied longer bolts. At this point just get the bolts started, and finger tight. I will note that the captured nuts in the rack supports are on a slight angle, making it a little tricky to get all three pieces lined up. An extra set of hands would be nice,, but not necessary. Next slide the 2 supplied U clamps around each rack support down tubes, and lightly tighten the supplied bolts and spacers. Now check the alignment and tighten everything up.

Once the bumper is mounted it is very sturdy, and follows the lines of the Grizzly perfectly. Moose does note in their instruction that the bumper is not designed as a push point. However it looks like it can with stand a pretty good impact.


Over all length of the Grizzly was only increased an 1 1/4 inches and no increase to the width. I am not sure if it would interfere with over fenders or not, but as long as your over fenders did not wrap around the back, I don’t think there would be any issues.

So anyone looking for a well fitting, good looking rear bumper for their Grizzly 700 or 550 be sure and check out Moose Utility Division. To purchase check the dealer locator on Moose's home page or see your local Parts Unlimited dealer.

HCS, Just a rough guess, I would say it weighs 12-16 pounds. Moose has a front counterpart to this bumper I however have the Yamaha HD front.

Edit: shipping weight was 17 pounds minus box and bubble wrap I put the bumper at 16lbs.

Nice rear end there Jay. I like the bumper just wished the Moose front bumper was as good as your HD one. Then moose would have a great alternative to OEM.

Good review. Def. a consideration when the time comes. Really like the older style Moose front bumper before they changed the design, but havent been able to find one.

Nice write, Jay! Mighty slick looking bumper. Does moose say if you should be able to lift the rear of the grizz by that bumper?

Thanks for the review. I've been looking all over for some close up pictures of how it mounts.
