which new Teryx to buy

Hi, I am new to the forum. I plan to buy a new 08 or 09 Teryx LE due to reduced price of those year models. Which is best for general recreation and hunting at various altitudes. I live at about 500' elevation, but hunt at 9000' to 11000' elevation. The difference in price is about $1000. Thanks

2009 since its fuel injected and you are riding in vastly different altitudes

2008 Teryx

Something to Tinker with

PM me if you are looking for a Service Manual.

Having just taken my 08 hunting at about 8500 ft elevation and having a bear of a time starting every morning, I would definately go with the fuel injected 09.

I'd buy an 09 over the 08 given the choice. The 2010 has the ugliest front end I've seen on a SXS. What were they thinking when they put the headlights there?

I own an '08. If there is truly only $1000 difference, then the '09 is a no-brainer. Fuel injection, fuel gauge, more insulated for noise and heat dampening, etc.

I would think $2000 difference from '08 to '09.

which to buy: 08 or 09

I appreciate the advice on which year model to buy. As you all recommended, I got the 09. It will run better on hunt trips at different altitudes.
