Good Afternoon,

We took our Teryx to get its yearly maintenance, due to the fact that it was not wanting to stay running. They did the maintenance, but told us that the choke wasn't going all the way in. Said it would be an additional $200 dollars to fix that. (Would have brought the total to $450 bucks to get it the maintenance and repaired)

We chose to just get it maintenance due to money issues, but we use it around our farm a lot. When we do use it (which is rare right now) you can smell the fuel burning due to it idling so high. Is there anyway to fix it ourselves and save the $200 bucks?

Hubby isn't a gearhead (hes's the brawn and I am the problem solver), but I hung out in the garage plenty with my dad working on vehicles. Surely it cannot be more difficult than working on a car!

Any help would greatly be appreciated! (I tried doing a search before posting to see if anyone else had the same problem, but couldn't find anything. If this has been posted before, please accept my apologies for the repost.)

Thank you in advance.

I agree, I would fix it myself..My 09 has no choke so I can't help, but tear it apart and see what the problem is. Funny how when you want to add upgrades on here you get all the help you need! $200...outrageous!

Hi
I think that at the Y where the 2 cables come together or some were along the line there is an adjustment. Also you should take the choke plungers out of the carbs and streach the springs so they seat and release properly. Good luck:wave::wave:

There could also be a buildup of crud and crap inside the choke plungers therefore not allowing them to close. I had a 07 brute force 750 that did not run worth a s**t, so naturally I sold it to a buddy of mine. He took it in to the dealer, they cleaned out the chokes and it ran perfectly.:banghead:

Cant be to big of a deal but mine is 2009 FI so I don't have the choke, I ordered a new choke cable for my 2006 Rhino and replaced it for 29.00 just depends on what the problem, with it running at a high idle it sounds like a choke plunger is staying part of the way on which could be something with the plunger corroided are something in the adjustment of the cable either way probally not a lot of cost in parts mostley labor so if you could do it yourself you should save a lot of money

There is no adjustment on the choke cable, but where the two cables join at the Y one of the cables could bu pulling out or the cable could be coroded and not allowing the plungers to close or there is a buildup of, for lack of a better term crud inside the choke's. Easy enough to do if your not intimidated. It would involve either 1: lubing choke cable, or 2:removing carbs, choke plungers and cleaning holes or 3: both

We ran into this issue before and if it is what we have seen, you can fix it for free!!

Where the two choke cables come together under the shifter down front the Y is wrapped with heat tape of sorts and has a wire tie on both ends. What we have seen is the wire tie was too tight pulling the cable sheath out of the Y causing the choke to be on all the time on one of the cylinders.

We just cut the wire tie on the top and unwrap the heat tape at the top to allow more movement.

On the 08 models I have seen where the cables come loose where they mount behind the dash. If it is an 08 you will want to pull the plenum from the top of the carbs and activate the choke to see if it is opening/closing properly. Cable lube is a great idea weather it is directly related to the problem right now or not.

Yeah its an 08 model, and I have it torn apart right now looking for that blasted y section. The guy who serviced it overtightened a bolt that I am having hell with trying to get it off to take the cover off.
