New Teryx problems!! HELP!!!

Hey everybody. So this is my first post & I have a problem I need help with. My wife & I were driving our Teryx for the first time & it started running like crap & smoking like crazy & then it died. I thought I was out of fuel, so I checked & it was OK. I started it back up (not easily) & it smoked like crazy for a few seconds & we were able to crawl back home & I parked it. I bought it in Texas (sea level) & I live in New Mexico @ 5200 feet. If the jetting is wrong, will it cause this? I appreciate any help

If you was running it hard it might have gotten oil in the intake. Try cranking it back up and letting it run a few minutes to burn the oil out of the cylinder. Before you do that check the air box for excess oil.

Todd,

Thanks for the help! That must have been the problem. I rode around this morning for about 30 minutes and everything seemed to be fine. Is there anyway to prevent that from happening in the future? Thanks again!!

Yeah, install a siphon break. I plan on making some up for it. You might do a search for one.

Also, you can run a little low on oil but I don't recommend that.

Todd, What causes this to happen? Is it a heat issue or too much oil in the crankcase? I've had a Prairie for 4 years and never seen that and I ride with a group that consists of Prairies and Brute Forces. Is this something the Teryx only is doing?, I'm just wondering cause this is'nt the first one I've heard of doing that.

I really am not sure. I hear if you have two crankcase vents it won't do it. It is just blow by pushing the oil up the tube.

Don't know about the Teryxs, But my Brute Force would smoke like a 2 stroke on extended wheelies and Right-of-Way hill climbs. Dealership said that oil gets into back cylinder and causes the smoking. Not sure how it gets by rings, but never had a problem, no matter how hard I run it, on level groung.

Thanks for the reply, Mouser58. We rode today for about 5 hours, and this thing is a blast!!! It climbs like a scalded ape! We were going up tp 9200 feet in elevation and it ran like a champ. We already have a camping trip planned for next weekend.

It would seem to me that some sort of modified PCV fitting at the end of the hose might work, course I don't know how soon it would plug up with oil, and of course I am not taking into consideration at what effects it might have on vacuum and pressure in air intake. If this blowby is coming into the carb airbox, why not just reroute the hose to empty on bottom of teryx and plug up the hole in the air box. "Excuse me EPA" did I really say that?
