Hello and big trouble

We have a 09 Teyrx (the monster model) and have been cleaning air filter every 50 hours.
We live in Northern NV and it is a wee bit dusty. I have taken it in for service every 50 hours.
We have used it alot, we hunt and use it to run our gun club.
We where never told we need to change air filter every other week, and that Kawasaki had a issue with the air filter.
So as you can guess it has seized up from dust intake.
the dealer has had it since the 1st week in Sept and we have been told by Kawasaki to pound sand as we did not buy extended warranty, even though they knew they had issues with the air filter.
The service manager where we bought it and it is sitting now used to work at a dealership in LV and told us he had 15-20 come in with the same trouble. So as you can see they have a big issue.
Ok sorry about long story.
And idea on cost to repair the upper and flush rest of engine?
The dealership is taking it apart.. they have told be first $3,200- $3,600 to rebuilt it or $4,200 - $4,500 for a new motor.. now they are talking $6,000 without even going into it.
Any ideas?
Any help with info would be great

For that money you can get a full built motor. Go with performance parts on the rebuild. Stoke bore kit or more ccs.
I clean my air filter after every weekend.

On your new motor if you clean the air filter every 50 hr,it will not be the last motor you need.Old boy on teryx forum has a benchmark 840 compleat for 3500.Very low hours. Or call big krv's performance 919-207-0010 he is straight up and does gret work.

Thanks Pit Dog

I understand the changing the air filter often now..
All I am/was saying was I should have been told to watch and change it.. This is the first sxs we have owned and we asked many? about upkeep maintenance and where very told anything.
thanks for help..
What ever I do I am going to put on aftermarket air filter system

From Northern Nevada also (Silver Springs) and know your dust pain.

When you get that rig going again I suggest you contact Todd at Hunterworks.com and get the billet Uni Filter system ... they really work! He would also be my choice for an engine job over that of any of our dealers in Reno or Carson. I consider them incompetent at best.

Good luck!

Right move

Thanks Lobo

I am sending it to Hunterworks for the whole 9 yards.. Just talked with him..Will be sending it to him next week.
And Yes I am going with the upgraded Air filter
I just wish someone would have told me that from the start (Like maybe the dealer??)
Thanks again
Dave

Glad you at least gave him (Todd) a call, he has helped me before with suggestions, ideas and parts. His prices are also good!

The dealers focus on factory only stuff and selling you the unit, after the sale they don't give a rats butt what happens and normaly rip you on warranty issues. I've gotten more help off this forum then any of the dealers.
