I just bought a Grizzly 660. 2004 model. Had a 11 to 1 686 kit and a intake kit but no exhaust kit. Seemed a little weird to put in a kit and then, don't open the exhaust, but whatever. Guy had bought a new 700. I got to drive and run both.
the 660 with kit had more bottom end. Jumped off the line much stronger. It's also more Lopey. like a Lopey cam. And you can walk it easier. Little throttle and it would slowly pull hard.
The 700 felt linear. As in, no lopey feel. Lot smoother power delivery. It was also faster by 3mph. On slow speeds in the woods, hit a little gas you got a lot. It won't walk as well. And, I mean idle walking. Not 5 to 10 mph. There, not really a difference other then the 700 felt smoother.
On the power steering. It was a wash. For me, Either was fine. For the guy who owned it. He wasn't liking it. Just looked like something more to break and it wasn't really needed with stock size tires.
Tested it in Missouri, Up and down large ravines. That I would have imagined would help the 700 with FI. But, For slow stuff I definately prefer the 660 with carb. I love the jump off the line.
The guy didn't want to sell the 660. But, just wanted newer with warranty.
I was adjusting some things and put it back together and it pinned the throtle wide open. Hit start and stood right up screaming and I shut it down. Talk about an eye opener. LOL
I'm looking at a stroker kit and the 105 bore size with a ported head. I want the power, not really worried about the speed.
