The 2R tip worked good on my Grizz till I put a pipe on it. I'me not sure if they make one for a 660 or if they ship to Canada but it's a worth a Google.

Most of us stay away from the tips especially the 2R. It has caused plastic melting and been said to be to loud. I am a guy who likes it more on the loud side, it's fun. But really, just leave the muffler alone.

I made my own tip for my 2016 Grizzly.. I wanted louder than the little 7/8" tip they come with (smaller than the previous grizzlys) but not as open and loud as the 2R. Also did NOT want burnt plastic.

2R did make a tip for the 660, but may not have them in stock anymore.
I have a 2R tip and another 2" tip made from steel, and use the steel tip. The 2R tip does the same thing.
Here are a couple pictures of the steel tip, and burnt plastics have not been a problem on my 660. It is very loud and most trailing riders do hang back some.
I don't know if the tip helped the performance but it didn't hurt. I use it more for when the grizz lets off a strong backfire as I feel (but can't prove) the larger opening creates less back pressure. I run a stock carb and at altitude there is less air for the amount fuel delivered, so when she goes off there is a lot of fire coming out the back of the muffler.

looks great. really do not want melted plastics though. is that actually true?
It depends on the situation. It has happened. Some guys don't have a problem. My opinion, get a tip turnes down, if you are going to get one.

The "Cheaper" tips are even shorter than the 2R tips which will cause higher risk of melted plastic. I bought the "el cheapo" brand tip for my 2009 grizzly and it was MEGA loud and I could see soot on the plastic after a few short rides. I took it off and sold it. I then made a custom tip for it which was smaller Diameter (1.5" ) and longer. It was way better.

You'd be best off to go to local machine or exhaust shop and have them make you a tip (Or buy the supplies... If you know how to build it) and make it like the one Ridgeway or Madkawi750 has. Just make sure the exhaust goes the same direction as the stock and you will have the flow without the worries of melting plastic. By the way, whatever happened to drilling the baffle. It's way cheaper.

Remember there is a difference in how the muffle is placed under the plastics on a 660 v 700.
And if you build your own tip don't do like popo and point the tip at the ground. It raises dust from the trail and this will piss off those following you more than the noise. I think popo does this to make their bikes look faster than they really are:)
