Unhappy BOOM! Catastrophe.....

Well, I should have known better, you've all told me a hundred times. But no, I didn't do anything about it.

I just left my damned K&N air filter on and BOOM, no more toy.

So now I know, I've got to get a proper air filter mod. Fist thing.

But I've also got to redo an engine. I'm thinking of going with an 840 kit, but not quite sure what's all entailed.

When you buy a kit, does it come with everything you need? Or do you still have to pick up a cam, throttle bodies, and what ever else?

Also, I'm a reasonable backyard mechanic. I've been able to look after my Teryx pretty well for the last while and I've done a few mods my self with the tools I've got. But do you need any specialty tools to pull the motor apart and rebuild it?

I haven't really looked into this to far yet. I've just started to think about my options. So far I'm thinking Muzzy's 840, as I have a Muzzy's exhaust already anyway.

Any help, advise or input would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, if you haven't modded your air box yet.... You might want to get on that.... before it's to late!

sorry to hear about your loss... there are a number of reliable kits on the market. a few are (in no particular order) DASA, FST, AMR, MUZZY, and Benchmark Performance. you will also get a hundred different opinions on whether you should go with the 840 kit or the standard bore kit. alot of the "west coast" guys ride in the deep sand of the dunes, where the 840 kit really shines. the trail type riding of the "midwest" or "east coast" guys really like the standard bore kit. the 840 will cost you a little more because of the cylinder plating that has to be done. both kits are able to be installed in your garage with some mechanical skills and the teryx manual... good luck!

08 LE, DASA 840, Muzzys, CDI, Open Filter Carb setup, VFJ Stage 3, XMF LT w / WER shocks, XMF 2 seat radius cage, XMF bed delete kit and bumpers, Lowrance Baja 540c GPS, HID's, 14" MSA MCX tires on black MSA Diesels, Twisted Stitch Agressors w / XMF seat bases, and a whole bunch of other shit!

There is a guy in Nova Scotia that sells kits, big bore and standard...he's really good. Check him out as well, might be better since it's in Canada..shipping wise.

This is what he sent me...

Hi Chris, yes we ship our Teryx engines and engine kits all over the world.
Our 100HP std bore kits are $999 (stock Teryx is 45HP)
Our 820 and 880 big bore kits are $1042 for the kit and $710 for a set of big bore cylinders (exchange on the cylinders)
Thanks,
Ray

You lost me with the onion sack thing.

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the different kits. Can someone provide some experience?

I think he means he thinks Rays #s are optimistic (to put it nicely). Ray does crank hp#s. Most builders use wheel hp #s. There is a big adjustment between the 2 thru the CV clutch.

Yes Ray is the only one that uses the crank #s so it can be very misleading to potential customers comparing other venders kits and he don't tell you any difference, with the CVT clutches you do get more accurate #s at the crank before it goes through the clutch, the problem is very few people use an engine or crank dyno so its hard to compare apples to apples, but don't know if Paul is right about the onion sack, in Canada they might have onion sacks that hold air LOL

So I guess there's just not enough people left on this site to offer any actual insight on this subject then.

It's to bad. Teryx HQ used to be a very good source of info.
