I've searched and lurked on the hard/cold starting forums for my style unit for 3 or 4 days now. I recently purchased a 2008 Teryx LE 4x4 and you guessed it- she won't speak, no cranky at all since day of purchase. The unit has 150 hours on it and the seller had it running the day I test road it and it ran out great. It was very powerful on the trail and idled well while we did a walk around. I later learned he used a battery charger on "Start" and mashed the gas pedal repeatedly x100 to get it going and just left it running until I showed.
Well, I got it home to my farm just a few hours later and of course it cranked right up (being warm) and I road it for about another hour. The previous owner forewarned me it was a cold-natured beast and had choke cable issues. The next morning she wouldn't crank to save my arse.
So...it looks like I'm in for a couple 100 more bucks for a 4 hour valve job now and who knows what else? It already had the Dynatek CDI program upgrade with a stronger battery and we thought it was the fuel pump so tried a new one and some new plugs plus cleaning the carbs...still no worky.
