SHOULD I FIX UP MY ATV OR TRADE IT IN?
I have a 2012 Grizzly 700 which I like very much, but the ride and power is lacking a little.
I've been looking at the 2014 Grizzly700 and my question is would it be worth fixing mine up with aftermarket shocks, a power commander and exhaust or would I be better off just trading it in for a 2014 Grizzly?
Thanks for your email!
Your question is actually very common - many owners want to know if they should spend money on aftermarket hop-ups rather than trade and start over.
The warm and fuzzy answer is one you'll have to settle but the nuts and bolts and $$ I can help you with.
If you put a ton of jing into your ride to upgrade it you will achieve your goal and have a more powerful 2012.
However, the money you spend will be largely unrecoverable as most often buyers will only pay a fraction of what the hop-up goodies are worth when you sell.
So from a purely economic perspective you're better to throw your money at a new Grizzly.
Hope this helps,
