Garage Butch450's 2007 Yamaha Grizzly 450
Utility ATV item created by Butch450, Mar 5, 2015

    The Pesky 450 is my 2007 Yamaha Grizzly 450. It started out as Camo but has been transformed to an SE using 2008 SE Midnight Black Armor plastics. She has been through a few bad rolls and rebuilds but has come out better after each one. Right now she sits in my Garage unfortunately, waiting since I am not able to ride due to a knee injury. I have run tons of different wheel and tire setups on it from stock to the current Pit Bull Rockers and it has seen it's share of rocky trails and mud, its even been drowned twice...On the same trip no less lol.

    The Pesky 450 has surprised many big bore owners in the woods with it's ability to keep up and sometimes even leave them behind. Having it set up to ride fast through tight, rocky trails helps with that although I know it has no chance out in the open. Still it has always felt to be the perfect fit for me and I really haven't ever needed more power in the woods. It has a few mods so click the modifications tab to check them all out.

    Thanks for looking!

    Very cool Grizzly, like what you've done with it. I think the clutch work was one of the best mod's I did for my 450 Rhino. Hope you can get her out of the garage soon and get to riding.
