    Back to being a Grizzly owner. Sold my 02 over a year ago. Lack of riding, normal excuses for selling, etc.

    Gained some friends that ride often and realized I missed having a wheeler, so picked up an 04 660 just two days ago. Its stuck with me on the road while I work (w/ no trails to ride anywhere close). Can't wait to get it home and clean it up just so I can get it dirty on the trails. New enough I don't even have pictures yet.

    Glad to be back on the forums.

    Everyone has disappeared. Haha. Go away for a little bit and poof.

    Anyway, the 04 turned into a project machine in the most irritating way: Torn axle boot (that I saw when I bought it) led to discovery of waterlogged rear diff when I finally got it home to work on it, which meant a full rebuild of the diff. Fixed it by buying a used 07 Grizzly 700. That thing has been a beast. Decked it out with full armor, plow and sander for the winter (which worked out great after I moved to the sticks and had a much bigger driveway than I had in the city), threw a set of Bear Claws on it. Seems to be near unstoppable.

    Got time and money and started the repairs on the 660: rebuilt the diff, rebooted the axle, adjusted the carb and replaced the Front CV Driveshaft. The wife rides it now. Just have to fix the shifter. Eventually, sell that and pick her up a 700 as well.
