2005 yamaha grizzly 660

hard to say a $ amount without more info.... how many miles? Does it have a winch, or any other accessories or aftermarket stuff? Power steering?

I look at a lot of used ATV's and own a couple myself. From a quick glance it looks like you have a covered seat with a rip in it which leads me to believe its either got a lot of miles so the original had to be covered up? Hard to tell from the picture. Exhaust pipe looks rusty so its either seen a lot of mud or when it did see mud it wasnt washed off. It has after market tires so its also possible the stockers were worn down and replaced. Or they could have just been put on there and OEM tires taken off? Again hard to say with out more details but that's my impression after taking a quick look at the pic.

Also your better off selling private party than trading in at the stealership. Look at that craigs guys list in  your area and try to find some similar and go from there.

How do fluids look/smell? Air filter/box? Spark plugs? Service records? What kind of oil did he run? How do brake pads/hubs look? With other things that were noted by rundrave, IMO, that price is not exactly a bargain....

We have one exactly like that.  Ours only has about 1500 miles on it though.  I also have a 2002 Polaris 700.  Like them both but the Grizzly has a smoother ride and steers easier.  We put tracks on the Grizzly for winter to get to the fish house and back. We can see the fish house from our house so not many miles to go.  What I like about the Polaris is to shift from forward to reverse you just push forward or pull back on the shifter.  Great for plowing snow.  The Grizzly you have to hit the brake and wiggle the shifter to get in the right gear.  No big deal but not as simple as the Polaris.  Rundave made a bunch of great points..

It has 1257 miles on it. Seat is covered it cracked from kneeling on it when it was like -10. Always had only yamaha oil in it. Has a winch, yamaha windshield,  rear cargo hauler, took oem tire off cause i liked the look of aftermarket better. Exhaust pipe is rusty and pretty much has been since less then a year old. Only work ever done besides oil changes is carb got redone at dealer. I didn't know if the price was high or low that why i was asking.

    • Chocolate peanut butter stout is back on tap at the Boathouse in Ely.    A little thinner than last year but still a treat!
    • Surface water temps in Ely are 69-71 on the lakes we visited.  I think that’s a really fast warm up though and the actual spawning depth temps are lower.  I haven’t seen any bass bedding activity and the 18-19 inch smallies I’ve been catching are all fat and egg laden.     They’re sitting deeper than usual this time of year too.  The walleyes are are still shallow.
    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
