Question about Yamaha XT 660 R Motorcycles

2 Answers

My 2006 yamaha grizzly 660 wont turnover enough to start. it started out i thought the starter was goin bad because when i hit the button to start it, it would just click. but if i kept tryin it would start up. well now it wont start at all. it i keep pressing the button it will start to turn over then just start clicking. so im not sure its the starter anymore. i took the seat off and there is something that kind of looks like a relay with 2 30 amp fuses in it and a hot and a ground wire hooked to it. and that is what is clicking when i press the starter button. can you tell me whats wrong?

I'm almost positive it is your battery, I had same problem, I'm on 3 or 4th battle! That big one cylinder has alot of compression, and really needs a good strong battery to start it. It isn't your relay, or it would not even engage the starter, it would just make a faint click. And you would be able to start it with no problem by jumping relay by touching both terminals together, peaceout.

Howz your battery, is it fully charged? Charged it using a trickle charge to full capacity.
The fuses are they good or blwon? Replace if blown.
Check your sppark plug if not been replaced in the last 6-12 months

Backfires when you try to rev up engine,


check fuel flow and check spark at spark plugs

According to an "ATV Rider" 2009 article, "When the Grizzly was introduced in 1998 as a 600cc machine, the top was blown right off the displacement wars of the time."
It was replaced in 2002 with Yamaha Grizzly 660, an even bigger engine derived from the well-established all-terrain vehicle (ATV) Yamaha Raptor 660R.
Grizzly's 660 cubic centimeter (cc), four-stroke, liquid-cooled single overhead camshaft, five-valve engine performs well in open country, but sometimes it causes serious problems for owners.
Before you call a Grizzly dealer, however, trying a few tricks in your garage can save you a lot of time and money.

Check the fuel level.
Locate the fuel meter indicator on top of the multifunction display.
If it does not work properly, open the fuel tank, and push the Yamaha 660 Grizzly side to side.
Ensure the fuel is not contaminated by water or rust.
If you have not driven your Grizzly 660 for a long time, drain the tank completely, and fill it with a fuel tank cleaner.

Check fuel hoses for cracks or leakage.
The hoses should be soft and simple to bend.
Replace those that show any sign of wear.

Check the compression.
Screw a compression tester into the spark plug hole, and press the electric starter button.
If no compression exists, contact a Yamaha dealer.
Wipe wet or dirty electrodes with a dry cloth.
The spark plug gap should be checked regularly

Correct the spark plug gap.
Measure the gap with a wire thickness gauge.
If necessary, adjust it to 0.8mm using a screwdriver or replace the spark plug.
Use only a Yamaha-specified spark plug.

Check the Yamaha 660 Grizzly's battery.
Operate its electric starter.
If the Grizzly starts quickly, then its battery is in good condition.
If the engine turns slowly, check the battery lead connections, and you may need to change the battery.
If the engine still does not eventually start, your Grizzly is beyond home repair.

I replaced the starter relay and still no starter action there is no power coming from the relay to the starter but the positive lead from the battery to the starter relay has 11.98 volts. 2001 660...


When you push the start button and the relay clicks the lead from the relay to the starter should have 12volts. If it doesnt you either the relay is bad or the cable(lead) is bad from the relay to the starter.Hope this helps.

2007 yamaha grizzly 660 backfires when you let off the gas what causes it


Backfiring is usually a result of the timing being incorrect, this can also be a result of a bad valve.
