Grizzly 660 Battery

11 posts in this topic

The Grizzly needs a new battery. I put one in from Fleet Farm 3 years ago and its totally shot now. Went to start it today after its been sitting for 2 weeks and it wouldnt start. Who makes a good battery and where can I get it?

Yuasa is a good battery. Larsons cycle in Cambridge,Dennis Kirk, or Rocky Mountain atv. Or just go to Walmart.

Is Yuasa a sealed battery? The one from Fleet wasnt and I think thats why it went bad soo fast. I dont supose vented batterys should be underwater! laugh

there is only one brand that I would look at.....Odyssey (SP?)

I'm speaking strictly on experience. Any battery that can stand up the the abuse dished out in a DS 650 is well worth the extra money spent.

It'll cost you more from the start, but well worth the money.

I can't remember if it's a sealed battery? ATV batteries don't typically last that long IMO. I have the original in my 2005 Kingquad and I'am expecting to replace it anytime. Most years I got out of a battery is 4.Odessy (spelled wrong) is a good battery from what I've heard, although might have to be modified to fit in some wheelers?

Just replaced mine in my 05 KingQuad, Old one wasnt totaly shot yet but with ice fishing comming up I didnt want problems. Went online to JC Witney.Its a BikeMaster Platinum sealed Battery. It was $150.00 on sale for $99.99. Sent to my house free in 4 days. Biggest for my wheeler they have. Parked outside last night at 14 above. Started like a champ.

what year is your grizz? I have a 02 grizz, and its still on the original battery. I use it plenty. if you start it up, let it run for a little while, so the machine has time to re-charge the battery. you may have something draining your battery.

Mine is an 05, I dont thinke there is a drain on the battery. Battery is just shot. Original battery on an 02? Thats pretty good!

The metal bracket that held the battery in place in my DS did need a little tweak to hold it in place.

all i know is that they are expensive. i changed the one in the 03 and it was around $80. but there's no pulling that over! smile

The only thing that pull starter is good for is "helping" when the battery is almost dead! There is no way you are going to pull start it, especially with my 11-1 pistion! blush

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
