Engine block heater

Has anyone installed a engine block heater? I am interested in an in line water heater, but can't find one that is made by Kawasaki or for a Teryx.

I did find one for a Arctic Cat Engine block heater-artic-cat-block-heater.jpg

and one for a Polaris Engine block heater-polaris-block-heater.jpg

Here is a link to each of the sites.
Arctic Cat Engine Block Heater
Polaris ATV Engine Heater 2871507

Let me know what you think, or if you know of something that is vehicle specific.
Thanks.

WOW never really thought about it...I would imagine with the popularity that the Teryx is gaining we would most likely see one, I will keep an eye out.

Just wonder what would you need one for? It doesn't take no time at all for them to warm up.

Coolant Heater

I have used circulating block heaters lots, check with a supplier who can get you a one (Temro/Zero-Start brands - possibly). Find one with right hose connection sizes and make sure you put it down low or else they don't work.

I live in a small town and my wife drives our teryx about .5 miles to work everyday. She isn't very machanicaly inclined, and has had a hard time getting it to start when it is colder than +10. I leave for work earlier than she does, so I have been starting it, letting it warm up, and shutting it off before I leave. It then stays warm enough for her to start easily. An engine heater will reduce wear and tear on the engine, and save some gas.

Ah OK we don't see temps that low usually in southern Illinois maybe just a day or two out of the year it night get below 0. But I hope you find one that you are looking for and hope it works great for ya.

I too would be interested in an engine heater or something that would help with cold starts. We've hardly been above zero at all in the last 3 weeks in Northern Wi, but not quite like -40 yet. One of these days I suppose. Meanwhile, the last 3 times I've tried to start my Teryx, she wouldn't fire at all. I probably have fouled plugs by now.

There are stick on pad type heaters available in all sorts of sizes for oil pans and batteries. I used a sticky pad on my RZR battery, battery blankets for my F 350 diesel, and a sticky pad for the F 350's oil pan. Search for oil pan heaters or battery heaters / blankets. Batteries loose almost all their power at sub zero temperatures. The oil pan heater will not be as effective as heating the coolant, but it might make just enough of a difference. You should get the battery heater regardless. The battery heating pads are not as powerful as the oil pan heating pads (you can overheat a battery), so get the right kind for the right application.

Here's a place to start looking: www.archeat.com
