2007 Grizzly?

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 660 Yamaha Grizzly. I was talking to my cousin a few weeks ago about how I never had a problem starting it in the cold. I use it ice fishing and keep it outside at the cabin during the winter and it has always fired right up. Well, we were having that conversation on our way back from the morning hunt and I decided to start it up when we got back. It would turn over a few times then make a clicking noise like the battery is bad. I checked the lights and the aftermarket lights and they are as bright as can be. I just want someone's opinion before I go out and buy a new battery only to find that isn't the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds like the battery needs a charge. Try that and if it don't work it's time for a new battery.

Sounds like a bad connection maybe.

Clean up the terminals and re-tighten the connectors.

Checking the fluid level and charging the battery might be a good idea also.

Check the connections on the battery too. I had one work itself loose a tad so it wasn't charging/starting like it should because it wasn't making ideal contact. My battery is on the charger right now. smile

The clicking is the solenoid. Sounds like a dead battery to me.

Thanks guys, I am going to charge it up and try that. What I don't understand is why the lights are still really bright.

Thanks Scott, I keep realizing that everytime I talk about something positive, the negative happens almost immediately.

Have you ever tried to pull the starter rope to start it? If so, you'll understand why the starter solenoid is chattering and can't turn it over with bad connections or a dieing battery.

It's a beast to hand start, if not impossible....especially if the engine is cold. The lights will probably light up fine as they don't pull the current like the starter does trying to turn over that big single.

If you think the Grizzly 660 is a "bear" grin to recoil start you should try a Suzuki Kingquad 700! sick

Pull it over with the recoil! Ha Ha Ha! I'm 6'3'' 265 and it is impossible to pull over! I want to know what Yamaha was talking about when they began using their automatic decompression. IMO, the recoil is more frustrating than the bad battery.

You got that right. At least they got smart and removed it from the 700 Grizzly. It really serves no purpose on the 660.

i have pull started the 660 a few times. the key is to get the piston to the bottom and then pull. sissy's definately need not try. pull start has saved my a$$ a few times

I had no issues pull starting the 2003 Grizzly I owned, although I never needed to use it I did try it a few times. Better to have a backup recoil than nothing at all.

I'd rather have nothing at all than the recoil on mine. It is almost impossible to pull over. Yes it can be done, but after 1 or 2 pulls, I'd rather let it sit than keep pulling!

    • Found a cardinal nest in one of my shrub bushes. Cute little gray fuzzy things. I tried to take a picture, but my camera phone sucks, and I didn’t want to bother them. I’m so glad I spent $20 on a cardinal nest box, only to have it sit empty.

    • Wisconsin's turkeys have survived my visit this year.  One is surely deaf after I managed to miss at 18 paces as he walked past me...  Not sure how that happened...   I feel like I rushed the shot when he started to get nervous.  Passed one jake the first morning that I could have taken at 40yd.   Came very close on two other mature gobblers.   One picked me off as he came around a hay pile at 20yd and immediately turned and ran, very smart bird.   The other came in hot, but decided to do a circle around me.  Appeared at 30yd wide open to my side while I was aiming down the sights towards his last gobble, and I had no chance to turn and shoot...  
    • Mentored for the Mn DNR women's Turkey hunt on Fri night and Sat morning. Friday was quiet but the birds flew up within 40 yards af the blind so we were hopefull for what the morning would bring. Sat morning was quiet and I waited till shooting hours to make my first yelps which were immediately cut off by 4 different birds. My lady was excited to say the least. She had never seen a turkey in the wild growing up and living in iron range.  Two of the toms gobbled a little after fly down but I could tell the were going north. The other 2 that were to our east gobbled a bit but shut up but sounded like the were coming down the road towards us. After about 20 minutes they rolled a big triple gobble within 60 yards wondering where this hen was at. I gave them a few purrs and set the call down getting her ready and calming her down for the shot. We still had not seen them put I could hear that unmistakable sound,pfffft boooom. Now I'm getting excited because I know they are danger close but they are on the side we can not see. Like always they proved me a fool and instead of coming right up the little road the cut through a high spot in the swamp and pop out in the field at 30 yards. They immediately hit full strut and throw a huge gobble right in our face and directly at my decoy that is set up at 8 yards. Then instead of coming right in they circle the decoy and blind at 25 yards and go to the side of the blind that is closed and gobble and strut for 15 min finally working into 8 to 10 yards bit still won't come towards the decoy. So I shut the one blind window and get her moved for a shot. The birds are now at 18 yards but getting skittish and moving away. As soon as I get the window open I hear her string drop and whay sounded like a hollow feathery smack and she says she got it. I look up and the birds are still there and look just a little nervous so I hit the call and they gobble back so I know it was a miss. So close but it was so much fun. Those 2 birds hung out for a few hours after strutting and gobbling at everything. 
    • Great bird, way to keep at it.
    • Nice bird, good job!
    • I assuming you are putting on the 5/16 T & G? I pushed mine tight and face nailed. Two nails per stud
    • Awesome!  Congrats and great work!!!
    • Five hours? Wow! That's about 3 hours longer than any bird I've ever worked. Good job.
