08 Hard Starting Problem

My 08 is a real beast to start in the mornings. takes forever to get it to fire and then warm up, No mods except,

CDI - Dyna
Plenum Rings from DAsa
and UTV Crap Oil Breather for blowback stop.


Any ideas?

Put your stock CDI back in and see if it starts better

Aftermarket CDIs need a strong battery.

Mine started doing this and only got worse it was my valves. That is where I would start good luck.

Ceaper and better most always dont go together, but I do have Vesrah valves in my Prairie and they are doing fine (very inexpensive also). I did go with Kibblewhite in the Teryx because I wanted some perceived piece of mind out of having a good quality product in this thing because I dont want to be doing it again any time soon!

Try the dynatek coil kit to go along with the CDI. Also, change to iridium plugs.
