Question Smoking 08

My 08 Teryx has about 260 hours with about 1800 miles. It has been smokin pretty bad and using quite a bit of oil. Has anyone else experienced this? Could it be valve guides and seals or piston rings?? It has been worked but not abused!!

Sounds like you might need to check and see in you are getting oil into you air filter from the crank case vent, has been a very common problem it will cause smokeing ad loss of oil. check you filter good to see if you see any sign of oil in the bottom of filter housing.

If it is smoking alot and not just when you run high speed I'm afraid a top end refresh is in order.

The stock filter has a tendency to let dirt pass.

Where are you?

Yes, it smokes most all the time. We live in northern Allegany County of NY. Work it mostly in the woods and on the farm.

That really sucks, most likely all you need is to put a new set of rings in it or you can go performance.

Only thing I think of though is with all the dirt going in it, I would split the case and put a new set of rod bearings in it before it started knocking.

Would really suck to do a top end and not long after it start knocking and have to go back in and do the whole thing again.

Actually we did this exact thing to our own Teryx in the last month. Runs like a top now!!
