|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. |
hmm... i kinda like it.
do you have a rough idea of how heavy it is?
Also is that the front counterpart you have as well?
