Will the Grabber kit work on my EPS model?
Yes, the Grabber will work on both EPS and base models.
Does the Grabber bypass the diff lock limiter?
With the Grabber mechanical kit, there are no electronics involved. You can go backwards or forwards at any speed you like without restrictions. We recommend you use caution at speeds above 10 mph with diff lock engaged.
Do you offer a warranty on the Grabber kit?
We stand behind all of our products 100% and we guarantee your satisfaction. If any part of your kit fails at any time under normal operating conditions, we will replace that part free of charge.
Do I need any other parts or supplies to install the Grabber kit?
Unless you save the gear oil that comes out of your diff, you will need to replace the gear oil. One quart of your favorite 80W 90 gear oil will be plenty. We use Valvoline 80w 90.
Can I mount my selector lever somewhere other than the handlebars?
Yes you can. The selector lever can be mounted on the rack or any custom bracket that you have.
How will my 4wd indicator work with the kit?
For No display models with only the light, your 4wd indicator will come on when the kit is in diff lock mode and will go out when it is out of diff lock mode. When you are in 2wd and 4wd, the indication will be shown on the 4wd lever.
For Electronic display models, your 4wd indicator will come on when the bike is in 4wd and stay on when you go to diff lock.
Will you guys make a kit for the Kodiak 450?
On the Kodiak 450’s, Yamaha went back to the older 5GH diffs like on the older Kodiaks that use the servo with only two positions 2wd and 4wd. This completely different diff from the Grizzlys and Kodiak 700 is what makes this kit difficult to design. A kit that is cost effective and has less parts/fabrication and as easy installation as possible for customers is proving to be difficult. A complete front diff swap would be required to make a kit. A possible driveshaft swap, axle swap and possibly hubs would be required as well. This is more costly and more work that most folks want to do or spend.
With that said, we are looking for customers willing to experiment and help us as two or three minds are definitely better than one. We would of course provide the parts and once the kit was developed, of course those folks would get one free of charge. This could get more involved than most folks want to get into so we completely understand if you don’t want to pull the front diff out of your brand new bike and swap another one in. However, if it is something you are interested in please let us know.
