When you say rough weekend, what did you do to your Teryx?

I would be looking at the idle speed control valve

I did the job myself. Not to bad of a job, but a i went to wyotech for auto and diesel mechanics and do alot of wrenching on toys. If you are somewhat mechnicly inclined you can do it. just get a manual and i recomend feeler guages that have a 45 degree bend will help on the rear cylinder and a long straight set for the front. But it can be done with short regular ones and just bend them a bit.
