Adding accessories

What kind of capacity does a 660 rhino have? I found I have a Via-Air compressor under the drivers seat, I wanted to add a 4,500 winch and possibly some LED lighting. Not that I would run them all at once, but what can a stock unit support if running while using accessories?

I donít know the exact number of amps the rhino charging system puts out but the excess is very minimal. Cheapest option is to add a second battery to extend the reserve capacity

I think Hunterworks still sells a 400 watt stator .... I have one of the old ones, and it seems to work OK
I made a battery bracket to put a full size battery in and it works great and when you do that you have LOTS of options on batteries.
The relays and module slide in over the glove box area and held in place with zip ties.


EDIT: .... didn't see it on his site, you may have to ask him about it.
I did find one with 500 wats .... http://www.tandrperformance.com/0507...507660500.html


"Brand new Yamaha YXR 660 Rhino high output complete stator assembly! (New is 500 watts total, stock is about 230 watts total, about 270 additional watts) for all those extra's: winch, lights, stereo, etc. Includes, stator, pulser coil, all connectors and HO regulateur/rectifier is included in the combo."

I like the idea of adding an extra battery. I’ve seen them with a car battery under the drivers seat as an extra. It should be easy to run a couple cables to it. It should charge ok, if there wired together, or would the CCA capacity difference mess with the charging?

Charging them will be no issue just add a ďpac 80Ē battery isolator

During the day when riding youíll use less of your accessories allowing the system to charge

Like Intro2Rhino said, you need to use a battery isolator or the big battery will kill the little battery.


That is one of reasons why I just use one big battery.

So did you just replace the lawnmower size battery with a full size small car battery? That would make more sense, than add a stater upgrade down the road. Where did you put the larger battery? I could probably fab a battery box up mounted under the hood.

Do you have any pics of your battery mounting, was the battery box put under the hood in place of the old one?

I can get pics maybe tonight ... stuck at work 14hrs a day until probably week after next.
Yes, it replaced the factory box, because I have a big air horn in the middle section (for people stuck in front of me)
If you have no horn, the middle section would be easier to do.


I made it where it looked nice, but thought it hung too low, so I remade it and raised it as high as I could so the big tires don't hit it.

That sounds like the easiest way to start. I have lots of angle iron and flat stock left from a couple trailer builds. It would be easy to build a solid bracket for a full size battery.

Yep, and choose the size/group battery you want and you have LOTS of choices .... I have had no problem with my winch bogging everything down like I did with a small lawnmower battery!

That sounds like the way to go. When ever you get a chance to snap s few pics, I would love to see it to get some ideas. I’m working out of state, so my list of things to do keeps growing. One more project for the list

It is ugly and starting to rust a little, but it is still together.
