I'm about to change the oil for the first time on my Grizzly 660. I had to wait for the oil filter to come in. I have to buy the oil filter wrench so I can take it off. Auto Zone has one for $6.00. Is there any way not to spill any oil on the engine when you take the oil filter off? Also my coolant level is low. Can I just add distilled water or should I add coolant? Probably coolant huh.

add a 50/50 mix of coolant and water.
Your coolant level shouldnt be dropping on a new quad......maybe you did do some damage to your motor when it got hot on you 1st time out......make sure you tell your dealer about it and if it keeps up get it fixed while its still under warranty

DO NOT listen to Kodiak660 on this, Yes you can get by with only changing the oil filter every other time but WHY would you? Oil filters are very cheap and they make cheap insurance. Oil filters on off road vehicles get gummed up with all kinds of crud and are subjected to extreme conditions. Why would you be worried about $12-15 when it could save you a $6,000 machine?

Yeah dont listen to me......I have only been doing it this way for 25,000 miles on quads and have never had an engine fail yet.
Besides that its what was reccomended by my dealer.

Marine if you look in your "Periodic Maintenance/Lubrication" Table in your owners manual you will see your to replace both your oil and filter at 200 miles....then both again at 1,500 miles....then at the next 1,500 just the oil and no filter....then at 3,000 both oil and filter.
Thats what Yamaha recommends.
I change my oil every 500 miles and my filter evey 1,000.
and I ride enough to have to change my oil every 2 months on average.

I agree with Marine, why change your oil if you are not going to change the filter? Why run brand new oil through an old filter? Doesn't make any sense to me?........Irv

I do the same as Kodiak, I change my oil every 500 miles and the filter every 1,000. That's more often than Yamaha recommends.
When you change the filter your going to get oil on the motor. I slip a shop rag under the filter and it catches a lot of it.

Keep a close watch on your coolant. Also, when you cange your oil make sure it's not milky looking. If it is, you're getting coolant in your oil and that's bad.
Hopefully, either they didn't put enough in or it just boiled off when you overheated your motor.

I just bought a oil filter wrench that works on a socket at Napa Auto Parts for $3.00. It worked great! I put a new EMGO oil filter and put Yamahalube 20W40 in engine. I put a shop rag under the oil filter also but still some oil got on the engine.

Whenever I took the engine oil drain bolt off I spilt some oil on the skidplate also. I had to put GUNK engine degreaser on the engine and skidplate and it cleaned right up.

I also bought Maxima Coolanol and put it in the radiator and filled it up. I'll keep a check on it everyday and make sure it doesn't go down any.

It seems like if you tip the quad as far as you can on it's side you wouldn't make as big a mess getting the filter off, but I haven't tried it and don't know how easy it would be to get to the filter like that.

By the way, how did the oil look after you drained it.

Just a little dark. I had to wait till the oil filter came before I could change the oil. It had 110 miles on it when I changed it. I'll change it again whenever it is broke in. You can't help but spill oil from the filter and drain bolt.

So far beside a rag near the filter area I always spill some oil also. I do try each time a little different way and still spill :) Maybe one of these days I will get it!

Tip the Grizz onto it's side and hoist it up so you can work under it:)

I guess you have to take off the skidplate to not spill oil on it. It makes it a lot easier to get to the oil drain bolt. It's very easy to change the oil on it though.

Master400,

I change my oil and fiter every 200 miles or so. I can do it for about $14 with a fram filter from wal mart and yamalube oil. Cheap way to keep her in tip top shape.

It's a good idea to remove the skid plates also, you'll be very surprised how much stuff can get jammed between there when you do alot of mud'in. Be careful tighting the bolts, they seem to strip easy.

Below are some fiter numbers you can use rather than the yamaha one.

I don't reccomend using an oil filter designed for a car. They may be cheaper, but they also allow more crap to get through the paper. They may be the same size, but they are not the same filter.

if you have ever been to the k&n site and use there search filter option. so you type in kn-204 which is for the grizzly.

you will get a list, bikes an atv's use this type of filter. me i use a wix filter they have to be by far the best filter out there for the money. its the exact filter that yamaha sells to there dealers, just doens't have the yamaha print on it.
i'm not saying its the best filter, just the best for the money. and in my town its the cheapest, :) i can get this filter at my big a auto parts store for $5,50, and goto the dealer to get a yamaha one and my dealer wants $11.00. i dont think so.


like my auto parts store they didn't have atv's listed in there books for filters so i searched for something they might have that used my filter. this is what i got.

warning this is a lot.
