2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 Frozen Shifter

Recommended Posts

This is more of an informational fix I wanted to share..

My Grizzly has been getting harder and harder to shift this winter and today was completely stuck and I needed to plow the few inches that came down this morning. First thought...oh no, tranny...but it’s winter and maybe it’s iced up. I pulled off the plastic to see what was going on and indeed I did find the drain tube iced up. 

I took the blow dryer out and de-iced it. Quick fix, I never really thought about the shifter drain tube icing up before, shifts like new!

That’s a great find and fix. Thank goodness not a tranny! What’s the moisture from, condensation? And where does that line go to ?

just wondering @Ajmboy,  do you do much with polaris, and if so, how do you like/dislike each brand of bike? (the utility model ex:  Sportman or magnum vs grizzly or kodiak)

You know I'm not sure really, I'm assuming snow got in there and I left it out in the rain a few times before the winter. That line is just a drain and has a plug at the end of it. I think its just there to hold any water/condensation or if you submerge it to drain the shifter box I guess. But that tube had ice in it because the quad sits in my garage outside with no heat. Yeah I'm glad it wasn't a major issue, I need this thing to keep going until I can get a new quad down the road. 💵

Honestly, I don't do anything with polaris and I used to be a bit turned off by polaris atvs in general because two of my buddies had an Xplorer and Sportsman 600 I think and although nice quads, they just couldn't take the beating our grizzlys, hondas, kodiak, and king quads could. Both of them had issues with front suspension and axles I recall and one had a speedo issue. But its not really fair because that was like 10 years ago and today they seem much better. I haven't ridden one in a while so I can't really give you an opinion.  I'm biased because I've only owned Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Yamaha ATVs like Bayou, Warrior, Kodiak, King Quad, and Grizzly.

      Hi,
      Have a 2005 grizzly 660. Just recently started backfiring and showing incorrect speed. Lifted seat and messed with wire going to starter relay, it stops for a bit but seems to come back.
      I ended up pulling all the pins out of the connector for the relay and added new pin/connectors for all 4 wires. fixed it for a little bit but came back shortly after. This was a new starter relay i installed a few months ago. Anyone know if a bad starter relay would do this?

      Hi there
      I am in need of a manual for my KLF 300 Bayou 4x2 . I've found others on here for the 4x4 model, but was wondering if I need a separate 4x2 manual. Does anyone know?

      Have an '02 Ford Taurus that's been grandma driven for all of it's 95k miles. After doing some very easy driving in town for a couple hours today I accelerated up to about 50 and noticed the car didn't seem to be responding to the gas pedal anymore. Looked down and the engine was doing 4k rpm so I let off the gas. Pumped the gas a couple times to see if the car responded and got nothing. Coasted to a stop in a safe lane and tested it in all the gears...nothing. The car stays put if you put it in park but you can roll it back when in any other gear position. The gear leaver on the tree does still give resistance when you move between gears. No music was playing and there was no noticeable sound whenever the breakage occurred.

      Called a friend and was advised to check the gear shift linkage at the top of the transmission. I'm not familiar with what the arm's full range of motion is supposed to be but I noted it's position while in park and low 1 and it seems to be moving well. Felt the connections and they seemed solid.

      Without the benefit of being able to do a proper run-up to a transmission fluid check I wiped and re-dipped the stick and it read fairly high although I hadn't added any fluid for at least 10k miles. The fluid was just a shade darker than light pink and although I didn't check specifically it didn't seem to have a burnt smell.

      There's no way low engine oil could cause something like this is there?

      Any ideas?
