Yamaha 660 grizzley


Recommended Posts

I am looking at buying a bigger ATV. I have driven the Honda Rincon, Kawasaki Praire 650, and the Grizzley. So far I think the Grizzley seems to be the machine I like the best. Anyone out there have one? If so have you had good luck with it. I have always owned a Honda but do not like the Rincon the least and am skeptical about switching brands. Any feedback would be appreciated

I have 1000 miles on my 660 griz, and no problems what so ever. this thing is fun to ride, and the ride is great. side hilling gets a little nerve racking, but just have some confidence, and it does it no problem.

knoppers, I'd like to just touch on the subject of "side hilling", that you mentioned.

Owners, ride your ATV at YOUR experience level. When someone says it's "a little nerve racking" and then says "it does it no problem", know what you're getting into, please. 700-pounds rolling on your body is something to take seriously.

dave, thats why I posted what I did. the only thing about this wheeler is that it does have a high center of gravitity, and side hilling is at your skills. I was not recremending that everbody go all out no matter the terrain. always ride within your ability.

Here is some advice when you try a cross side hill manuver.
Always keep your down hill foot on the peg with your weight supported by it, this is so the center of gravity is lower than if you just sit on the top heavy seat.Also prevents or helps to prevent the machine from sliding out from under you as it looses traction.
Now with your weight supported by the peg, lean into the hill and keep both hands on the bars.Never let go of the bars or grab one side with both hands.Two reasons for this, one is the machine if going over can actually toss your body over it and in front of the 700 lbs comming down on you.Second is it helps keep you in control of the front end at all times, no control can also lead to a flip over.
Only use as much throttle as needed to get across the hill,to much gas can spin the back end out causing loss of control.
As your riding skills progress you will be able to hot dog a little and still keep the machine in control.
But untill you master the machine just use commen sence and ride the way you feel comfortable, the cross hill manuver is one of the hardest to do for a novice rider.
Start out practicing on small hills first to get a feel for the high siding that will happen.
Hope this will help some one.

Sorry, brother. House rules don't allow for sales of equipment anywhere but the For Sale forums.

And, don't step in any holes (inside joke between two former Gimp's Live Bait employees)!

    • If you fish the river it could. Ive done it and seen it done multple times. Hit a log that is.
    • could that happen???? yea probably, but unlikely.   i've been chopping or helped or watched cutting spearchucking holes since i've been about 8-10 years old, i'm 65 now, and never remotely seen it happen. ''closest i came was cut a spearhouse hole, plopped the house over it and ended up with a deadhead right smack in the middle of it. the top of the log about 4 ft below the ice!!!!!! 
    • That would be nice til you caught a log frozen in the ice and broke both your arms and your back.
    • Screw your little toy e-augers and chain saws!  😏  😆          
    • the wife and I took a little drive to Arkansas for one more ride. 
    • I get where your coming from Leech. There are some gray areas and loopholes and they know how to work them. These youtube people they want you to be angry, it all plays right into their revenue.   The thing with these youtubers is they unfortunately  have a mass following and they will tell all their fans to show up at the DNR offices, court house, call the office phones etc. And it just drives up their following, youtube views etc. and the result is just more revenue for the youtube channel and people get sucked right in (myself included). Like I said love him or hate him he's generating significant income by doing it and its like a bad car wreck you just cant look away.    In some cases the DNR getting involved the risk outweighs the reward if you get my drift. look at the crowds that came out for him over a misdemeanor jet ski fine in TN. It looks like its straight out of the movie "Time to kill" lol:   More:  
    • Another reply from the DNR Capt.  Sounds like their a bit afraid to dig in and get what the need to prosecute.   Mr. Beeeped-out  😉 I do want to thank you for your time in researching and sending us the information.  The second video in particular involves the CBoyz near Cormorant Village in Becker County.  If you watch many of their videos they are full of violations.  We have met with the County Attorney’s Office and we have been told that unless we can provide a date/time of the actual event they will decline to prosecute.  We have identified many of the players in these videos but only have a date/time of the video release and not the actual date and time.  We have also made contact with them and taken enforcement action in many of their videos.  They are not afraid to film our officers in action.  In addition the first video was a year or two old if I recall.  I will not disagree that when looking at the video there is areas of concern but unless we can observe the damage and be able to testify in court that the wetland was damaged we would likely not be successful in prosecution.  We will continue to monitor their activity and if observed causing damage we will be taking enforcement action.  We appreciate and share your concerns.  If you have any additional information please forward to us.  Capt. Seefeldt   These Jackwads!
