Key Features
 The 550 cc 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 558 cc 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 multi-function LCD display with speedometer, odometer, dual trip meter, 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.  
 This 558 cc 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; 92 mm 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® 40 mm 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 skid plate 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.  
Additional Features
 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.
