Hello and seeking information.

I just joined this Forum. I've had the opportunity to test out a 2009 Teryx Sport over two recent weekends on the family farm. I haven't purchased it yet but I probably will. I love the machine but still harbor concerns about rollovers and the strength of the roll cage in the event of a rollover. I am aware that you can roll anything over if you try hard enough or are reckless enough, but any insights into Teryx rollover potential / effectiveness of roll cage in the event of a rollover would be appreaciated. Many thanks.

There are lots of builders on this site that build a better than stock cage.

Thanks. Are the stock cages known for not being up to the task?

Clockwise di-do's flip over easier than counter clock wise!

You will find the teryx to be a pretty stable machine. It is wider than a rhino. I have never felt mine to be "tippy" however have pushed my luck fairly hard with powerslides in the dunes. Still no rollover so far.
