Death of a Teryx
The unit was stock from the dealer, nothing added, nothing changed. It had it's 20 hour service and I was informed that the air filter was never oiled from the factory or the dealer. It had sand and dirt into the intake. The carburator was a muddy consistancy...
It is under warranty and it will be repaired but that's only part of my disgust! Why does this happen to not only mine but others out there? It's a design problem, so the dealer has implied! Kawasaki has a serious problem and compensation is due!
The Teryx is warm & cozy in the winter time when the Rino folks are freezing their butts off! I think it will be unberable in the warmer months, if I get it back and have the opportunity to ride in it!! So much heat comes off that motor into the cabin. I don't think that is a good design either!
I was told prior to my purchase, Kawasaki sat back and watched all the problems that the competition had and built a superior unit! Nope I don't think so! I feel it was a waste of 10,000.
I have no interest in having performance work done on the motor! I just want a good dependable unit from the factory that performs as described by Kawasaki!
Disgusted in So. Cal.!
