Your First Mod

So what was the first mod you did when you brought your new Teryx home?

I have been busy all weekend so I have not had a chance to really play, however, a few HP gain is expected when simply removing the spark arrestor.

The CDI's are out now, so I am really thinking about picking one of those up

CDI!
Without a doubt, the CDI makes a huge difference. Benchmark Performance GPSd their stock Teryx at 47 mph. With only the CDI, it went 59 mph.

And, it eliminates the timing retard below 5 mph and really lets it rip!

Our Teryx will now burn all 4 tires from a standing stop for a good 15 feet, and way longer than that in 2WD!

The other things we have done are a bolt on 2 seat cage, DWT Racing Beadlock wheels, and a AC Racing slip on muffler.

Ya that v-twin from my understanding is way under-tuned, reports are that the CDI really livens it up a lot!

Right now I am working with a fab shop for the cage, then we will move onto performance

When I got my teryx home i took off the guards off the a-arms and all the warning stickers. My first real mod is a AC Racing / Flow Dual exhaust system!

I have paddles and smoothies already but not on yet and ITP T7 Black beadlock wheels on order.

we drove ours in the parking lot, drag raced the rhino and then got to work on the long travel, 4 seat cage, front bumper, light bar with 3 LED's by baja designs, PRP front and rear bench deats, VDI, took out spark arrestor, billet body kit, billet wink mirror, cool LED lighted whip (Kawi green), 14 in tork wheels with goodyear MTR's, billet grab bar and ipod holder, and then went straight to the dunes and had a blast, NEXT: Motor work!

So what you are saying is that you were happy with what it had from the factory

Sounds like a really nice machine, post up some pics in the Main Index - www.TeryxHQ.com Media Gallery when you get a chance!
