02 Prairie vs. 12 grizz 700

Recommended Posts

My good friend picked up a 2012 grizzly 700 with 20 hours on it for 5,000.00 it was a repo! The ride was smoother it felt lite in the front when turning my Prairie seems like a workout. Then it came down to you wanna run'em why not was my answer he was about a quad & 1/2 in front of me and said go and took off so I had to try and catch up & pass him and that didn't happen I caught up but didn't get by him. Round 2 he didn't get a jump start & my old Prairie took the win. I think the V-Twin engine just seems to have more torque over the single cylinder. I thought for sure he would win.

:yes:the V-twin in our prairies has more torque and a few more hp.. and it is alot more stable at high speeds in the woods and twisty trails .. it will also climb alot steeper hills with out wanting to roll over backwards .. it also has alot better engine breaking ..and will slide the rear around like a sport quad ..and do donuts easyer ... i have ridden both and still like the old strate axle prairie over any of the independant rear utility atv's .. the only draw back is less ground clearance ... but bigger and more aggressive tires even that out alot ... and if you add aftermarket exhaust and jet kit and do a clutch kit or clutch mods it will even hang with the bigbore 800cc machines in the woods and trails ..cause they are no ware near as stable at high speeds as our old prairies ...:laugh:

      Hello everyone,
      Im new here, this is my first post and Im trying to figure out how evrything works on this site so I please let me know if Im doing anything wrong.
      I have a couple Yamaha's but this post is in regards to my 02 Grizzly 660, I have an electrical draw somewhere that is taking my new battery down rather quickly. I have tried to locate any short by checking each circuit but was not able to locate it that way. Im installing a battery cut off switch which brings me to my first question, dont these switches usually go on the Negative terminal?
      My next question is, can anyone tell me if this year and model has any history of electrical shorts that might help me locate the culprit? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
      Finally, Im looking forward to being a member of this site and hopefully helping others as well as learning some things myself, so greetings to all!
      Best wishes to everyone!

      My quad runs,  it starts up runs for about 10 minutes and then it dies if you let it sit for 10 minutes it’ll start back up ride for another 10 minutes and then die again, trying to figure out why it keeps stalling

      I am kind of sick of having a stock ATV and not that willing to spend money on it but would love to spend some time for some easy homemade mods to kill time. Thanks.
