Teryx trouble!
 
Hi, we recently purchased a new 2011 Teryx, we got it in March and went for our first ride on April 12. The first night after riding for 2 hours (taking it easy as per instruction for breaking it in) we were on a gravel road when it lost power, max speed dropped to 8 km/hr (5 mph). I stopped, it idled perfectly, shut it down and checked all fluids, all looked good, limped 3 km back to hotel and parked for the night. The next morning started it up and it was acting the same, I lifted the box and dropped it then it ran fine (no electrical close to box other than rear lights, and they looked fine). So we headed out with friends for the day. 1 hour later same thing, again lift box and drop it and problem goes away for a short time. When we got back home I took it in (17 hours on machine now) it did the same for them, so they hooked it up to diagnostics, and it showed no problems! They don't know what is wrong or how to fix it. Any ideas?:confused:

Loose connection that the jar of closing the bed bumps to issue to the right spot?

It apparently is directly connected with a jarring of box, but it is intermittent and not easily duplicated.

i think it has a limp mode ,has somthing to do with the belt ,a buddy of mine had a problem one night somthing happen to his belt and it went it the limp mode ,not sure if this is your problem but wouldnt hurt to check into.

Whew!! they figured it out, kind of silly really, not enough tension in park brake. Jarring bike would cause park brake to drop (very tiny amount) and cause bike to engage limp mode.
