I started this project a while ago.. I have decided to make one thread I can continuously update..
So , here we go. I got this Raptor 80 in really bad condition.. Rear end frozen, Engine toast, tires dry rotted, tons of rust..etc.. They admitted they beat on it very hard.
Since they do not make these with a drive shaft anymore I decided to restore it from top to bottom..
These are photos of when I got it home.
Next up, the tear down..
First, I needed to tear it down and determine if the rear end was still good... As we all know... That is where it would be cost prohibitive to restore if it is trashed..
Got it completely stripped down and I lucked out... The rear Drum brake was caked solid inside with dried mud. That was causing the rear end to lock up. Took off the rear brakes and the rear end spun perfectly smooth.
Once I got it all stripped apart I needed to take the finish off all the parts. I am going to be powder coating the frame and many parts.. Once the finish is off each part it will need to be sandblasted to white metal .. The guy I use for powder coating gives me a hefty discount if I bring the parts to him ready to go.
You could just sand blast, but that would take a long time to get the finish off. First I used Aircraft Paint Remover.. That stuff is pretty toxic Goggles and Resperator are required. That quickly gets you down to the metal... Then you can sand blast to white metal pretty quickly...
I had another thread I had started about a problem with the tear down... It has some great info .... here is the link... It is about removing the frame bushings. ....

I have a 2000 Polaris Xplorer with the 250 two stroke motor
It does not want to start with the electric start, the motor cranks fast, the battery is good, and there is good spark when cranking. The engine starts perfect when using the pull cord, it even starts if I pull the cord slowly and starts with one pull. The engine idles smoothly once started. My wife says she needs the electric start to work.

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!

Can anyone give me guidance on my issue. I have a 02 Grizzly 660 and replaced the wet clutch, primary shaft, one way bearing. Today I was riding since I tested and was driving about 20-25 mph and all of a sudden the tires locked up, heard a screeching sound, and engine died. Didn’t have a clue what was going on, decided to try and restart, engine turned over normal but engine hesitated slightly, started and had to assist with the throttle. It seemed to do this for a minute then seemed to straighten out. Got home, pull clutch cover and test drove to witness clutch operation and everything looks and sounds perfect. Could not duplicate. Please help.
I have a 2002 grizzly 660. I just bought it last week. It had sat for about a year. I knew going in that I was going to have to spend some time in the carb.
I took the carb apart and sprayed it with carb cleaner and blew it out with compressed air. I cleaned out the fuel tank, replaced the fuel line and new fuel filter. Filled with fresh fuel.
Started it up and set the idle. I rode it for about 3 hours yesterday. Then it developed a miss. At idle it would go put put put miss put put put miss. If I didnt not add some choke then it would die. The miss wouldnt go away it would just idle it up fast enough for it not to die. It progressivly got worse. It also would have that same miss at slow speeds steady throttle. If you give it lots of throttle it runs great and the miss seems to go away. When it misses like that the exhaust makes a whistle sound also.
Today I pulled the spark plug and replaced with a new one. It did not help. old plug looked good, but it was two heat ranges to hot from stock. Not for sure why that was in there.
My first thoughts would be the pilot jet maybe. Pulled it out and its clean.
Is it possible that some trash got in there with all new lines,filter,fuel and a clean tank.
Thanks in advance guys, kinda stumped.
I have a set of Grizzly 660 plastics (front & rear fenders & gas tank cover) that's taking up space.
They are green in color & right now, they are covered in Camo Clad 3M camo material. It might not look the best up close, but it does protect the plastics.
If anyone is interested in them, PM me ... I'll let'em go cheap but be advised, shipping can be costly ($125 give or take)(I paid $125 for a set I bought from a guy a long time ago) ... can photo's if you want to your personal e-mail, but ONLY if you're really interested, since they are kinda difficult to get to right now.
