Key Features:
  • The 550cc class has a leader, with a fully featured package based on its best-selling bigger brother, the Grizzly 700 FI, with a largest-in-class 558cc powerplant and excellent value.
  • Yamaha Fuel Injection means instantaneous cold starts and optimal performance in nearly any condition, from sea level to 15,000 feet.
  • Ultramatic® transmission with dual-range (Hi/Lo) drive and reverse is the most advanced drive system available. An automatic centrifugal clutch maintains constant belt tension for reduced belt wear and uses a sprag clutch for all-wheel downhill engine braking in 4WD mode and reverse.
  • Three-position On-Command® 4WD sytem lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and a fully locked differential 4WD—all with the simple push of a button. Override button allows engine to make maximum rpm in full Diff. Lock mode.
  • Fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension with WideArc™ A-arms up front and five-way preload-adjustable shocks provides maximum ground clearance for unparalleled comfort over rough terrain.
  • Advanced digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.
  • The Grizzly 550 boasts the lightest weight in its class at only 648 pounds wet weight.
Engine:
  • This 558cc 4-stroke SOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled engine is derived directly from the industry-leading Grizzly 700 powerplant.
  • Ceramic-composite cylinder liner provides outstanding durability and heat dissipation; 92mm forged piston is light and strong and rides on a carburized chrome-moly connecting rod.
  • Two-lobe overhead cam and a pair of needle-roller rocker arms reduce friction by 50 percent for increased fuel efficiency and torque.
  • Gear-driven crankshaft balancer shaft and 4-position rubber engine mounts reduce vibration.
  • Yamaha Fuel Injection uses a Mikuni® 40mm throttle body and idle speed control valve to provide easy cold starts and flawless fuel delivery in nearly any condition, from below sea level to 15,000 feet.
  • Pushbutton electric start with seven-disc torque-limiting damper assembly to protect the starter motor.
  • Stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.
  • High-capacity radiator with fan motor delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.
  • Five-position shift lever with H, L, N, R and P gates has a light shifting feel with easy engagement, providing positive Ultramatic transmission control.
  • Specially designed drive system air intake helps prevent overheating and assists in keeping water and debris from entering the drive case.
  • Oil access cover allows easy access to check oil level.
Chassis/Suspension:
  • Full-size chassis provides the same high level of comfort enjoyed by Grizzly 700 riders.
  • Front and rear lower A-arm guards offer excellent protection — and Grizzly 550 features WideArc™ front A-arms for outstanding ground clearance that’s 5 inches wider than that provided by ordinary designs.
  • Fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension with WideArc™ A-arms up front and five-way preload-adjustable shocks provides maximum ground clearance for unparalleled comfort over rough terrain.
  • Gas charged rear shocks offer a quality damping feel and excellent performance over a long period of time.
  • CV boots are made of tough polyethylene for more durability than typical rubber boots.
  • Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes serve up powerful and consistent braking performance.
  • 5.3-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling; there’s a 4.8-liter water-resistant storage compartment under there, too.
  • 10.8 inches of ground clearance and full-length composite skidplate deliver maximum underbelly protection while enhancing terrainability.
  • 25x8-12 front and 25x10-12 rear Maxxis® tires provide responsive steering and handling and excellent comfort.
  • Direct driveshaft design efficiently transfers power while providing outstanding durability with less vibration.
Additional Features:

  • Rugged steel cargo racks with special, extra-durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 286 pounds combined (99 front, 187 rear).
  • Fenders have a textured finish that resist scratching and scuffing.
  • Center-mounted, heavy-duty trailer hitch comes standard and can tow more than 1300 pounds.
