Overview

Description

Voted "Best of the Best"


With all the features of its big bore brother including industry-first electric power steering (EPS) but in a slightly smaller engine package, the Grizzly 550 FI EPS is the ultimate utility ATV and Field & Stream's "Best of the Best"


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, Electric Power Steering and excellent value.

• Steel Blue model includes cast aluminum wheels.

• Yamaha Fuel Injection means instantaneous cold starts and optimal performance in nearly any condition, from sea level to 15,000 feet.

• Electric Power Steering system lightens steering for superior comfort and terrainability.

• Industry-exclusive, fully automatic Ultramatic® transmission is the most advanced drive system in ATVs. 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.

• Three-position On-Command® In/Out 4WD feature lets you switch between 2WD, limited-slip 4WD and fully locked differential 4WD—all with a simple push of a button.

• Fully independent long-travel four-wheel suspension features double-wishbone suspension front and rear with five-way preload-adjustable shocks for maximum control and comfort over rough terrain. Smoothest-running and -riding Grizzly ever.

• Trick digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter that counts the engine's running hours, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.

• The Grizzly 550 EPS boasts the lightest weight in its class at only 648 pounds wet weight.


New for 2012


• New oil access cover allows easy access to check oil level.

• Fenders have a textured finish that resist scratching and scuffing.

• Gas charged rear shocks offer a quality damping feel and excellent performance over a long period of time.

• Rugged Maxxis® tires get the Grizzly moving over the gnarliest terrain.


Engine


• This 558cc 4-stroke SOHC 4-valve liquid-cooled engine is derived directly from the industry-leading Grizzly 700 powerplant.

• Compact engine design features a 35-degree cylinder angle for ground clearance and lower seat height for quick steering and maneuverability.

• 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.

• Stainless steel exhaust system features aluminum heat shields and a screen-type spark arrestor for great power with minimum noise output.

• High-capacity aluminum radiator with fan motor delivers maximum cooling efficiency and is positioned high in the frame for optimal protection.

• Five-position shift lever with L, H, N, R and P gates has a light shifting feel with easy engagement, providing positive Ultramatic transmission

• Sealed drive case keeps out water and debris to help increase durability.


Chassis/Suspension


• Electric Power Steering. This assist feature, pioneered by Yamaha on the Grizzly 700 FI EPS, lightens steering for superior comfort and terrainability.

• 5.3-gallon fuel tank is located under the seat for excellent mass centralization and handling; there's a 4.8-liter waterproof storage compartment under there, too.

• 11.8 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.

• Rugged injection-molded front bumper and CV joint guards protect against rock and debris damage.

• Full-size chassis provides the same high level of comfort enjoyed by Grizzly 700 riders.

• Five-way preload-adjustable shocks provide a comfortable ride, whatever the load or trail conditions.

• 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.

• Four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes serve up consistent, long-lasting braking power.

• Direct driveshaft design efficiently transfers power while providing outstanding durability with less vibration.

• Center-mounted, heavy-duty trailer hitch comes standard and can tow more than 1300 pounds.

• Rugged steel cargo racks with special, extra-durable wrinkle paint finish can pack a total of 286 pounds combined (99 front, 187 rear).

• Large, specially designed seat is extra plush and widely contoured for all-day rider comfort.

• Trick digital instrument panel boasts a multifunction LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual tripmeter, hour meter that counts the engine's running hours, 4WD status, transmission position, clock and fuel gauge.
