Help!

I have a 08 teryx I got it used it has a lil over 3,000 miles. I was riding easy on a trail started up a hill and it starterd smoking oil smoke and had a pinging sound also.I shut the machine off and checked the oil and it was full. Started it up and it was fine rode it home and it made no noises and didn't smoke again. I've read on here about the crankcase blowing oil to the breather. But really worried about the pinging noise. Is this common?

It happens.

Installing a catch can or others have dropped the oil slightly helps solve the situation (still more than half on dip stick). It is more likely to happen on a steeper hill.

Not sure about the pinging sound of it though.

The pinging was probably the oil burning, burns different than gas.


Our STOP kit will fix this

The pinging sound only happened while it was smoking
