How often do most of you change your battery. I'm still on my original battery and it doesn't show any sign of weakness yet. I bought my 660 new in March of 2005 and I've never had a battery last this long before. Currently at 6500 miles and my Grizzly goes into storage each year from December through March.

Do you use a battery tender when it's in storage? That's a pretty good run you have going. I am on my original battery on my '07. It is garage kept and on a battery tender, but I don't have nearly as many miles as you. You might be in the running for longest living battery!

I replace my original battery for my 2004 660 last year. It may have been okay as the stator was the culprit. I keep the Grizz's indoors (heated) but I run a Battery Tender on them once a month just to make sure. I've had pretty good luck with all of my batteries (in other toys) doing the same thing.

Still on original since June '06' but it gets started every couple weeks to charge, run gas through the system and get the water hot.

I got 5 years out of my 1st one, but my key got left on, it went dead dead for a few weeks too long, and wasn't able to recover it. I bet it would be still going like a champ!
