Video/Pics - Differences between 2008 and 2009 and what makes it cooler and quieter

Besides the FI.. which I am really liking. Same idle speed all the time no adjustment. No choke, just turn the key. My wife has a lot better time with the 2009. Hey!! I rhymed!! hahaha

I have questioned and I have seen many people question the differences between the two year models. I tried today to shoot a video that shows what I have found so far. I hope this helps you guys get a better idea of what the 09 has that you can benefit from to retrofit to your 2008. I will try to make time to figure out what parts need to be bought, and I guess I am just going to order a 2009 service manual from Mr. Motorcycle.

Thank you for watching the video, I hope you like it.


OK More. I can see now why it is cooler and quieter. Rubber membrane surrounding engine, extra steel on hot side of engine below factory plastic, and stick on insulation all over the place. Here are some photos.

The first two show both sides of the engine with the center hump plastic removed. No wonder it is cooler with this and the insulation!!





In this one, you can see where the steel plate I remove in the video fits. You have to take out the plate to check your oil. Notice it extends back and under the plastic in that hot exhaust side of the engine.





Now for the new crank case return setup. You can see there is a tank of sorts. So far no oil in my airbox, but the exhaust is not installed yet either.








Next thing to notice is how open the rear of the machine is under the bed with the bed heat shield attached to the underside of the bed instead of the frame of the machine. The machine's bed seems to stay cooler with this setup as more air can circulate around the muffler now and escape between the frames and bed instead of the heat being trapped between the frame.






New 09 Teryx rear CVT Snorkel. I do not see why this would not fit the 08 with no modification.

Good job. The end pieces of the CVT exhaust and intake are different too (higher). The rest of the clamps and parts seem to have the same part #.

Some pics added to the first post in this thread.

I do the clutch today hopefully if I can get away from work a little while. I will try to photograph at least the new rear CVT outlet and inlets, yes they are somewhat different, front plastic covering inlet looks same as 08 but it does have the same kind of stick on insulation as the rest of the engine cover plastics for 09. It looks like to me that the CVT in and out would fit an 08 no problem.

Few questions.

Is that a catch can on the side of the air box plenum?
Does the rubber sit on the motor in places or is it suspended/hanging off things?
Is the rubber thicker than say rubber pond liner?




Note: I have an 08. The heat shield is attached to the underside of the bed on mine.

I don't know how thick pond liner is, but it is pretty think. It has hangars and also wire ties holding it on and maybe more. It is basically I think maybe 3, 4 or maybe even 5 pieces or maybe just 3. Not sure, have not taken it all off. Hope to do the exhaust install tomorrow.

Your bed has some heat protection but the fact that you have that flat piece of metal screwed in between the frames and the metal shields I think. With the 09, air can go between the frames and the bed to vent hot air. I think it runs a good bit cooler, but have not been in super hot weather yet.

This is what the 09 looks like with nothing removed just the bed dumped. Ez access for sure.

No, it is not a factory catch can, it is just a re-route of the vent tube, still doesn't solve the problem, this is my interpretation and opining, and I very well might be wrong??

It thought I read that the 09 also came with a siphon brake now but that it still doesn't solve the problem.
