    I’ve gone from having very little time to perform maintenance on my toys to having lots and lots of time due to this COVID 19 Pandemic. That said, I thought I would make a “spin off” of the “What did you do to your bike today?” thread.

    Does anyone else find themselves passing time in the garage?

    Anyone prepping their ATV/UTV for the upcoming season?


    2014 Yamaha Grizzly 700

    Today:

    - Oil & filter change
    - Front & rear differential oil change
    - New spark plug
    - Coolant drain, flush and fill
    - Air filter clean and re-oil

    Tomorrow:

    - Replace aluminum skids
    - Clutch(s) & belt inspection
    - Grease rear suspension bushings
    - Check front suspension components
    - Pull all four wheels and check brake pads

    FDB3B2DD-F573-4865-9BFD-1C349090FC6D.jpeg Got it completed today!

    Had to think outside the box to get the skid plates re-mounted. It appears the many rocks of Newfoundland has affected the alignment of the bolt holes.

    I'm almost the only person in this community without one and I have to say I have no interest in having one. Just sayin'

    It’s relatively low miles (2200 kms) and usually only gets used travelling to/from my friends outfitting camp. Lots of rough trails and rocks on the trip. The top sides are in good shape, but the footwells have rubbed their fair share of rocks as have the skids underneath. Had to pound allot of metal back into shape to get the right footwell off the bike and access the clutches.

    Wow, that is low mileage. What year? My mileage is extremely low too, 2002 with 4000klms.

    Are you talking to me? I haven’t used my quad in about 10 years. And the 4000klms on its odometer is all Brigus JCT.
