Teryx Maintanence

Hey guys need my 20 hour service, called the Kawie dealer near me and they say this is gonna be $265. This seems very high for what they tell me they are gonna do. Just checking and changing fluids, belt deflection, and a few bolts. My question is this I have a friend who runs a small atv/motorcycle repair shop that can do this for half price and he is a certified mechanic. Will they have to honor the warranty if I do it this way or do it myself as long as I keep receipts and stuff,

The price is in the belt deflection, it takes a couple hours.

I would suggest buying the tools for the belt and doing the service yourself or at least do the belt yourself and let them do the rest.

Make sure the dealer knows that the original Kawi maintenance called for deflection check at 20 and now it is not until 200. Your deflection is fine, you can tell when you sit still in gear and it squeals. I saw how your machine runs and the belt is good.

I think MR Motorcycle only charges 172 for that service if I remember correctly. Might be worth pulling it here to AVL.

If you want to do it yourself, I would be happy to help.

The dealer I bought mine from was charging $210 and I had asked for an estimate to also install the dalton clutch kit along with the HW cover and they said it was an extra 150 to bring the total to $360. I ended up going to a local ATV shop and had everything done for $225 by a former lead mechanic for Highlifter

They did the maint and it ended up being $210 cause I complained to the owner about the 265 price tag they quoted me. But it wont go back there I am not very happy with them from when i bought my Prairie from them.
