Hello GC.

I'm Mike from NW NJ. I have countless miles of rocky trails to ride around here. New to Grizzly but not new to wrenching or riding. I just bought a 05 660. Giving it the once over. This site seems to have more 700 info than 660 but it appears most of it is the same. I am new to CVT. Everything else I own has a manual transmission. What is "Grizzly Grease"? The gallon of grease I cleaned out of the primary sure looked like moly to me. I'd imagine any hi-temp grease would be fine. If I do the shim mod do I have to do the purple spring? Have people played around with this enough to know that its what should be done? I don't care about top end. 50mph is plenty for me. I'd rather that power down low. I put 26" rip saws on and they are a heavy tire. I don't have a reference for stock because it came with 27" dirt devils. I'd imagine the unsprung weight is just as power robbing as a taller tire.

Is there a way to get the gear indicator sensor out without taking the exhaust off? Park, Neu,and low rarely light up. I know its an easy fix if I can get it off but the bolts are stuck tight and I don't have much room to work. I saw a thread about rebuilding the shifter. It hangs up a lot and getting into low is difficult.

So far I've changed all the fluids twice, except coolant, need to do that. Rebuilt the carb (pilot screw mod? really hard to tweek on a running engine) Greased the 4 zerks I found, put a light bar on for night riding, new tires. All I have left is finish cleaning out the cvt change the coolant and fix the shifter. I still need to buy a plow but I might wait till spring since I want the warn front mount and a sale would be nice. I plan on hanging on to this machine for a long time. Or at least until EFI gets cheaper.

Welcome from Wyoming. Alot of the guys around here use high temp waterproof marine grease. You can do a shim without a spring. Most people who need the umph add a spring. Personally I plan to do a shim and add a new belt next time I work on CVT.

I ended up using Lucas red and tack because that was what's in my grease gun. I had to take the spring off anyways to grease everything so I might as well put a new purple spring on while I'm in there. Right now I'm trying to disassemble the shifter. Too much rust to move smoothly. I can't find any posts of someone else attempting this. I already got the main bar in the bottom off. The bar that the shifter rides on is giving me trouble. Maybe because it's not supposed to come off. Maybe because of the rust. The housing is plastic so I can't use heat. If I can get it off then moving the shifter left to right will be much smoother

Got the shifter apart. Just take the push nuts off and drive the rods out with a punch. I'd post pics but since photobucket got greedy and ruined a lot of good forums I haven't found a replacement yet

I used regular grease that is in the grease gun. However if I did it again I would use the right grease. That's why I mention it.
