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

    • I think that Lee is going to keep the momentum going and he proved that he can catch fish when others struggle.  It also seemed like he was more open minded to fish where the fish are and not stick with one pattern that seemed to fizzle out for some of the other guys. 
    • Rand Paul has put together a plan, and there are others, as well.   But as long as there is the requirement put forth by Trump and the Democrats that everyone will have healthcare coverage, whether they can pay for it or not, it's probably DOA...     https://www.paul.senate.gov/news/press/dr-rand-paul-unveils-obamacare-replacement-act  
    •   The only way to prevent single payer is for the Republicans to miraculously pull some other "terrific" plan out of their bums that they haven't been able to come up with in the last 7 years.   Good luck.
    •   I noticed you failed to provide examples.  
    • You can never have to many frogs.
    • They can come up with a workable healthcare law.   The hard (impossible) part is coming up with a workable healthcare law with all winners and no losers, as that is the requirement.
    • KVD is a hammer on Toledo. He is the only one I have slotted in for sure. A lot of really good sticks struggle on Toledo. I imagine 30+ percent of people will pick Hackney, but he really doesn't have a stellar track record there. This will be an interesting one. IIRC, many of their past stops at TB have been later in the year, like second week of May. A lot will depend on when the fish there spawn. Could be a tough transition bite, or it could be a freakin' amazing postspawn smashfest.
    • I am no expert, but I am guessing that you will be advised to put some insulation under it, and if you don't have insulation under the slab now, that may be an issue. I would also think that it would be better to keep your foundation/slab one piece for all. But again, i am not an expert in the least! We do have infloor heating in our cabin slab and it is very nice, and the off-peak/dual-fuel electric pricing makes it nice and affordable heat. Very nice on the feet in winter, and keeps the gas bill very low.   If you don't have off-peak/dual-fuel pricing then the electric may get very very expensive to run, especially without proper insulation missing from part of it.   Good luck.
    •   Nailed It!!!  Way too much tinkering went on...some of that brought on by Fletch...Hansal, White/Schroeder, Stewart for a 4th line would be just fine too...they have to dial in these remaining games to have the consistency needed for the playoffs.
    • If you want to keep it simple, buy a bunch of black Booyah Pad Crashers. They're relatively inexpensive (compared to some frogs, anyway), pretty durable, and draw tons of strikes. You can mess with different colors for fun, but you can't really go wrong with black.

      Terminator's new(ish) frogs are also amazingly good, and cast and walk better than Booyahs IMO.
