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

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.

      Edit: Sounds like the 2nd moves to a 1st in the ducks clear the 2nd round of the playoffs. Not sure I would have paid that price.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
