Yamaha Grizzly 660

Recommended Posts

I own a 2003 Yamaha Grizzly 660, owned it since new. One of my biggest complaints about the machine is the differential lock to lock in all 4 wheels. The engine cuts out so bad it's not worth using. Shortly after buying the machine I installed the reverse limiter override to allow a faster reverse when really stuck, a great help. Wondering if anyone knows of the same type of add on for the diff lock? Looking for something that can be installed fairly easy. Please let me know if you've heard of anything as it would definately help the aggression of the machine!!

taits, I just purchased the '07 660 and it came with an overide button that allows it to go faster when in diff. lock. I would check with a dealer they could probly work it out for you.

There is a way to override this.If I remember correctly you have ground out a certain wire under the seat area. I could give you an internet site to find out how, and the guys avatar name is Grizzhopper.The internet site is highlifter.Hope this helps.

JT is correct. The override can be wired in on the '02s and '03s. 2004 and up have a switch built in from the factory.

On my 2006 I believe it cuts out around 20mph or so and that's not much if your wheels are spinning.

That Grizzhopper guy has a schematic of how to wire in the relay and switch to remove the limiter. Many people have done it.

Wondering if you can send the info you found on overriding the diff lock? Does it look difficult? Man it'd be nice to get that taken care of. Thanks to all that have helped on this, I appreciate it! (and will even more when I'm buried in the swamp, flipping the switch and climbing on out!!) email to [email protected] Thank you!!

I apologize. I didn't think that a file could be sent to this site so that's what I had requested it be sent to my home. I tried to keep all the communication out here though so everyone could view it. I had seen other forums similar to this and that it was acceptable. Again, I apologize.

Knoppers is the one who needs to read Forum Policy since links are not acceptable. Taits_papa, I think you're okay as far as following Forum Policy.

Still looking for somebody that has information on how to obtain a kit to over ride the diff lock on a 2003 grizzly. I already have the over ride kit for the reverse limiter and think it's great. If anyone can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. Could have used it this weekend while plowing snow! Still did pretty good with (3) turning.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
