how can you tell if you have been sluged or not

New guy
I bought a 2004 660 rhino low miles and hours, it has a 3'' lift and 30'' tires and it came with a country plow, The guy i bought it from said the 1st owner had l the lift wheels plow all put on, But i have no experience with this type of clutch setup. I feel confident i could install the slugs but is there any way to tell if they sluged or not. And what size slugs should I buy. and if i take it apart what else should i look for and replace Beside the belt.
Thanks for any info.

"How can you tell if you have been slugged or not?"


There are usually 3 or 4 for sure items to look at to determine this.


1. Is your jaw sore?
2. Do you have a black eye or two?
3. Are you missing any teeth that you weren't previously?
4. Did you wake up on the ground with no recollection of how you got there?
If any of those answers are "Yes", then you have probably been slugged.


You're welcome.




But seriously, what Brian said. Take it apart and give it a look. Might want to give it a once over anyways with the larger tires and plow.

You are not going to know until you go in the wet clutch, below is a link to our slug kit and there is a link for a install video there. You will see how obvious it will be once you see the video

I want to thank you, Todd. Giving us the link you did gave me a "go to" site for parts and demo's I will be using in the future. I have an 06 Rhino 660 and the wife and I love it. Here in Idaho, we have lots of forest and lots of mountain trails that we love to ride. We're in our 70s so, with the exception of an occasional rock climb or a rare exhilarating 4 wheel lock hill climb, the vast majority of our rides are for scenery and picture taking. However, when our Rhino is 12 yrs old, it needs a little maintenance once in a while. Thanks for providing your site.

Considering 3/4 of Idaho is all part of the Rocky Mountains blanketed in old growth pine juniper and cottonwood, all of it honeycombed (with the exception of those areas deemed "Wilderness Areas") with trails perfect for our Rhinos. (The state, local BLM, and Forest Service offices here work well with the different riding organizations, particularly the ATV/UTV) All that is asked of us is we ride responsibly and stay on the trails. Along the Idaho/Oregon border we have Hell's Canyon, North America's deepest canyon stretching over 125 miles long and 10 miles at it's widest, and consisting of 3 reservoirs. We also have 2 what are called "high desert" which offer, what many say, is the direct opposite riding experience as all you see are sagebrush, sand, dry creek beds, caves, and a beauty all it's own. We do a lot of "day riding" in the desert area we call The Owyhees (Google "The Owyhee Mountains, Idaho")



Are you equipped for "dry camping"? Oh, and how long were you planning on being here in our beautiful state?


My favorite camping area is near the little unincorporated town of Bear. (Google Bear, ID) We set up along side of a beautiful little creek named, what else? Bear Creek. We use some hunting camps as a hub to dry camp in, and "spoke" out from there. One day we'll ride out to a little lake (Black Lake), bring your metal detectors if you have them as we pass some old miner's cabins along the way; you'll want to stop off at Smith Mountain Lookout and experience what it feels like being at the top of the world with a 360 degree field of view. On another day, we can take the Kleinschmidt Grade down to Hell's Canyon Reservoir (you can check out this link and see what this road is like. It's great on a Rhino: https://www.dangerousroads.org/north...rade-road.html )


I could go on and on and on, but let me get back to you. I'll get you some web sites to use to order some of the materiel I recommend you look at: maps, RV park listings (like I said, we mostly dry camp, but I can recommend some as well.) Forest Service Maps

Wow sounds great thanks. Brian and our families would tag up for a week or so, but my brother and our wives would move around for a month or so riding different areas.
