New to the teryx please help

Hey everyone I just bought a 2009 brand new and the made me a deal on a muzzy 2-1-2 ext and a msd fuel controller and a k&n filter. Well long story short is all the part will be here thrusday and I'm leaving thrusday night and it's already loaded in the trailer. So I'm asking if I take these parts with me to the dunes will I be able to install them there and how does the msd work is there setting in it to get me started or do I have to have a laptop to use it. Will pulling the air box lid help or not.

Msd is plug and play and there is some pre programed maps in it to get you close. In terms of the exhaust that is a 2 to 4 hour job depending on your skills, you will need to remove the front plastic cover and the bed for a clean install.

I would wait till you get back and clean her up before doing any work on it. Beside if she brand new I would run it without any performance stuff until you first oil change to let things settle, at least the first 25 hours...

Just my 2 cents

MSD is simple to install you just pull the plug from your current ignition plug in the MSD and back to the ignition it just piggy backs on to your current ignition, as far as maps that depends on where you bought it, some dealers like the one I bought mine from (hunterworks) has a map for the Muzzy already installed, I put his MSD and Muzzy on and ran 64 mph on a stock machine with no clutch mod. The Muzzy will probally take about 2 hours to put on. As for as the air box lid I don't think you will gain a lot on a stock machine. They make an aluminum billet adapter for your air box to make a much better seal on your filter, alot of people have had problems with the stock seal on the filter and there is a lot of negative talk about the K&N filter on these machines letting dust into the box and intake, most people are running a UNI type foam filter, alot of dealers sell the billet adapter and filter combo

Cool I can't beleave it can get all the air it needs with the little holes the air lid has on it. I got my msd from the dealer as part of the deal because it had a chip on the front bumper so it has just what ever they come from msd with. I'm riding it at the dunes in Oregon so there is no dust that we have to deal with and I've always had good luck with k&n on all my drag bikes, truck, and yfz I do agree with you if your riding in the dust a k&n is not the right filter tho. So witch setting should I use on the msd?

You will be fine, just go in there and change your rev limiter to 9200 and speed to 80 or 100.

Yes and No... Yes you will a PC not a mac to fine tune the MSD. You will need a small screw driver to move the rotary switch the correct position, pull it out and take a look.

Well since you said Oregon Dunes I would say leave it alone until you get back. Your ride will be fine get in driving while the weather is good. When you return drop me a line and if your close I will lend you a spare set of hands.
