Curious if any of the fine folks here can recommend a good place to unload a low hour ATV? Craigslist? Any decent local area forums dedicated to ATVs?

I'm looking to get rid of my couple year old circa 20 hour Grizzly 700 SE to make room in teh garage for a 2018 Camaro ZL1.

I bought my previous Raptor on Craigslist, I would try there first.

Post them FS on here (TCG) and craigslist.

A Power Sports dealer might want a year old 20 hour machine. Wouldn't hurt to ask. (but you are going into the ATV off season)

cool, thanks for the input folks. Definitely is ATV off season but something like this is actually pretty fun in the snow, some of the hours I put on it were doing snow donuts in my backyard... :p

I could find alternative storage solutions, it is just my new house while still a three car is not as deep as my old 3 car garage and it is tough to fit 3 vehicles, a quad, a lawn tractor, utility trailer, snowmobile, shelving and workbench all in the same place. I'm hoping to put up a shed next spring but know I don't have the time to use the ATV and do HPDEs I thought I'd look into selling the thing.

Currently in San Francisco for work so can't put together a proper for sale post. It is the flat black tactical looking grizzly 700 4x4 with power steering, locking diffs and so on. Basically an unstoppable barka lounger on wheels. Completely bone stock as I doesnt really need any more, imo. I can take pics when I return home.

I have no idea what it is worth and prices on atvtrader are all over the place.7k seems a decent enough place to start given the low hours?

ATV prices seem to hold very steadily regardless of the time of year and it's all about the hours apparently. 20 hours on a newer Grizzly, damn near sell it for what you paid.

FWIW, sold my Scrambler 1000 with ~600mi and ~20 hours for $8500. A more utilitarian ATV will hold it's value better.

Interesting. Thing was damn near 11k when new. I'm seeing them go for like 7500-9k or so. Nice job getting 600 miles in 20 hours. Mine hasnt seen much speed since it was breaking in for almost as long as I've owned it :(

I might be wrong on hours (sold it this summer), I just know I had "low" miles compared to the other Scramblers for sale but that didn't seem to matter much. Yeah, 7.5-9 sounds about right for a newer utility quad.

Nice Yamaha

I would detail it and take some better pictures. You are asking $1500 less than a new one and it has 17 hours on it. Make it look new.

#1 a brand new 700 EPS SE is not 8250 are they? I paid over 10k for this thing new. :( They also don't make the flat black color anymore.


I don't have time for that. I'm only home a couple days a week and i'd rather spend that time washing the ZL1. If it doesn't sell i'd happily pay someone a couple hundred to come out and detail it for me if it would net me more than teh cost of the detail in return. Otherwise my time is kind of worth too much to really bother, sadly. ;)

I did wipe it down the other day but when I took a brief lap of the yard to make sure everything was in working order after the winter and it got a little muddy. I don't have the time or inclination to take the fairings off and really clean it out good.

I already have an offer on it, so, yeah, thanks for the input ;)

I am just saying a clean product and good pictures goes along way to attract buyers. Good luck with the sale that's a very nice machine.

Kodiak is a different model and lists for a little over a grand less than a grizzly. (And Kodiak didn't even exist in my year anyways.)

I agree on cleaning it, if I have to relist i'll wipe down the fairings but I'm not wasting time trying to figure out how to take them off and risk not getting them back on properly.

I probably won't need to relist.

Fuck top of the line. Good deal. Is that fuel injected?

Well I guess the LE would be top of the line. This is 2nd.
Edit: I am also saying "fuck" like damn this is stop of the line. Not like fuck (stay away) from top of the line.
