Lowering the front tire air pressure REALLY helped. Gonna squirrel nest some money REAL quick and then call Jacago and see what he thinks of the Works shocks and factory rear..

I do have another question.. being that most of the places I ride require riding boots ( and I feel better in them ) is there a lever that fits perfect? I've adjusted mine and its too high or not high enough. Its an IMS the PO had just put on when I got it. I think I saw a different set up in the Service manual where it adjusted up and down without removing it and clocking it. ( I'd have to look again) Please look at pic and advise. My initial thought is heat and bend or cut and weld..?? I'd rather replace if this is a common problem. Thanks in advance.. The test ride went well. Love this thing! :grin Thanks

Anything over 10psi is to much for the woods I ride in, as well as dunes. The biggest and best mod is eliminating the extra shift linkage on the 660 that you already have done. I always wear boots and found a longer shifter works better then a short one.

I can't tell what pegs you have but if they're the "fat" pegs or whatever that'll make it even worse. My old nerfs had really wide pegs and they were really nice to stand on but were tough to get use to shifting with riding boots and my pro design shifter. But as stated a longer shift lever will definitely help.

Hey thanks guys. Looking on forums and ebay and stuff, can you give me an example of a longer shift lever? I see this is a common problem. The foot pegs on my nerf bars are what I consider to be thick and wide (silver tec). Seem nice to me.

Yep, those are wide pegs. The added support is good, but they move your feet forward. Some bikes use longer shift levers. Maybe a Banshee or Blaster, I don't know for a 660. You'll have to match the shaft size. ANYONE KNOW?? Or, as you said, extend yours by welding.

The front row of teeth on the Roll Design pegs is lower than the rear 2.
This makes them feel more narrow, and gives your feet more room to move up and down for the shifter and brake pedal.
The nerf bar pegs teeth are all the same heigth, and feel wider because of it.
I prefer my IMS pegs also.

I'll prob figure a temp job on shifter but end up ordering the nerf bars and shifter that makes it right. BUT, I've got other things to fix in the mean time like this one - Sometime in the units life someone modified the exhaust and it burned a HOLE in the air box ( PO telling me this ) (new exhaust when I got it) . I bought a serviceable one and have it now. Right before I got the unit the PO had a stage 1 jet kit and carbs completely rebuilt at a Yamaha Service center. I have all the old stuff in a bag. Now - I've briefly read about leaving the lid off, drill holes in lid, etc. After looking at the picture please give me your advice as to what I should do. Right now, without newer airbox it runs flawless. Note - I have all original ducting with a K&N air filter. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Oh yeah, the second pic is something I bought on Ebay also. Goes with the scheme I"m headed toward. (will remove sticker ) :grin Things that might matter too - 686, stage 1 hot cam, tusk clutch, power bomb header,

You can leave the lid off of your not I to much water. I have area's where I'm 2ft deep to cross so (6) 1" holes provides a semi splash cover. The snorkel must be thrown out if you at least want it to breath. Prodesign air filter set up or I wouldn't even start the bike up. It solves all air leaks. Also drill a 2nd hole on opposite side of air box invade you wash in there and it can drain...same goes for battery box on rear fenders. These mods won't turn anyone away if you sell, shows you were smarter then the average atv owner in the last 40 years.

I've looked at the prodesign set up - very near future mod. Is the snorkel the ducting that goes above the carbs?

My woods 700 has a snorkel on the air cleaner lid. I got a "Outerwears" filter cover from a Honda 90 that fits the snorkel and keeps out water and other debris. I also have 2 different covers, one intact for wet, one with about twelve 1inch breather/filters for dry.

Snorkle on a 660 attaches to the lid, it's under the tank area. I only use the lid, been as deep as 2ft no issues, it's not needed.
