I have an 07 660 that I bought used and like a lot.

Would I love to have a 700 with EPS? Sure, but it's just a toy.

I've got more important things to take care of and they come first, wife, kids, mortgage, etc...

One day- when a 09 700 with eps - is just considered an "old ATV" , and they are selling at good prices, I'll pick one up... ;)

The differences between the two bikes are so vast that I don't even compare them...that being said, I still had a blast on my 660. It was even faster than my current 700 and it was all stock except for the 26 inch Mudlite XLs I put on it.

The 700 rides much better and is more stable than the 660...but if you never rode the 700 you wouldn't care because the 660 is an awesome quad!

To me, they are worth giving up a perfectly fine machine. I have an 02 an haven't had any issues with it. Gas sitting in it for extended periods is the only problem I had with not getting out there and riding. Stupid is as Stupid does. I didn't by my Grizz to drag race and I haven't been lacking in power anywhere I wanted to go, so CC's haven't been an issue. My grizz starts anytime I want it to, I get good throttle response when I need it, so FI although would be nice, can't see paying for it. The only item I would probably benifit from would be the steering, especially when I get hit with a good kickback. But I can't see spending money on a new/used machine when mine is paid off and works just fine. I will have to wait for SNIRT to find out if a stock 700 leaves me in the dust.

Conrad, the 700 will not leave you in the dust at all. Honestly, I think the power is about the same. Here is what I like about the 700 over the 660...

1. Power Steering - for obvious reasons and I don't need to explain much here. The "bump steering" is a huge improvement.

Now the other reasons I like the 700 more...

2. The shocks are placed outside the A-arms. This improves the documented "tippiness" of the 660.
3. Fuel tank moved under the seat. This lowers the center of gravity and improves ride in steep or rough terrain....additionally, reducing the "tippiness" over the 660
4. Seat comfort. Hands down the 700 is a lot more comfortable riding on long trail rides. This has to do with the power steering but also has to do with the improved seat feel.
5. Disc breaks. Huge improvement over the 660!!!
6. Fuel Injection...I never had an issue with my 660 starting down to -15f degrees. After that, it was a crap shoot but it usually would start. With the fuel injection, my 700 starts down to -25f degrees. After that, who cares!!! I am not going to be outside anyway.
7. Fuel Economy. The stock 700 gets noticeably better fuel economy over the stock 660. I have a couple mild mods done to my 700 and now I get about the same fuel mileage as I did with my stock 660...but it is more fun getting to
"empty" .
8. Improved clutch. The 700 has an improved stock clutch over the 660. It makes turning 26 inch tires easier with less power loss over the 660.
9. I like the storage compartment on the front fender of the 700. I know it's a small thing but it really improves the bike. I use that storage compartment on every single ride!!!


To be fair...a couple things I don't like about the new Grizzly

1. Seat length. The new 700 seat is more comfortable but noticeably shorter. I like the feel of the 700 seat but wished it came in the length of the 660 seat.
2. I like the 5 valve motor of the 660 better than the current 700. I wish they would have kept the 5 valve motor and just increased the size.

So there you have it...

I think both bikes are great and there is really no reason to upgrade unless you want to. The 660 will get you everywhere the 700 will so it's just a personal choice.

My 02 660 is paid for and isn't giving me any problems I can't handle. I would like the fuel injection for the cold months but other than that it works fine. If I bought something I would keep the 02 and buy a Rhino.

Got 'em both. Nothing wrong with the 660, but I love the 700. The 660 has a more comfortable seat. The 700 has better brakes and snappy throttle response. Power steering is a nice perk too.

Had an 04 660. Picked up a 700 for the EPS (all wheel drive and I can still steer - enough said) Wife loved the power steering, picked up second 700 with EPS, sold my 660 to my father.

Instantly he sold an 02 polaris and never looked back.

Both 660's and 700's are great. All 3 in mint condition and start everytime.

I just got my Brand new 660 from a dealer here in Baton Rouge back in August 09. They had a few 08 660's left in crates still and I got a heck of a deal.... I love it and I wouldnt want to pay the extra for a fi or power steering, even though it would be nice.

The 660 is a true Yami Work horse and has done a heck of a job keeping up with most other quads. It will beat a 700 in a stright out drag but only given enought track.
They are a very dependable and reliable model never sell them short, it would be a big mistake!
