Does anyone have any experience with a long travel kit for the Teryx? I'm looking to buy one without shocks. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I know there are a few out there, however, I do not have any first hand experience with any of them.

Looking to do one on our project Teryx, so I will be sure to share any information that I find.

ALL you need to know is on my wed site

SMF,KAWASAKI TERYX BUILD UP,KAWASAKI TERYX LONG TRAVEL KITS,KAWASAKI TERYX ROLL CAGES and aftermarket parts and accessories from Shaw'z Metal Fabrication, Inc.

Custom valved fox remote resovoir shocks with hyper coil spings hiemed front arms hiemed tie rods front shock tower braket 300mm axle's all hardware and installed at no charge
you can use stock wheel's and tires it has 16.5" of front wheel travel with 5" of ground clearance rear has 14.5" wheel travel with 5" of ground clearance we have new video but its not up on the site yet only the old video .I wouldn't buy a pieced out kit because the shock valving unless you want to weigh the teryx then ajust the valving test the shocks then make more ajustments it takes some work call us i will sell you just arms if you want

Long Travel

We have 2 available FST and XMF and we are looking into becoming a Funco dealer as well. Either way you choose to go I would strongly suggest buying the shocks with the kit because you will be buying something that is set up properly and it will be much less frustrating and time consuming. Sending shocks back and forth for set up changes will take alot of time you could otherwise be spending behind the wheel.

FST





XMF

LT Kit

I think you'll find that most every kit posted here is excellent. They each have their strong points. I guess you really need to decide how wide you want to go +4, +5, +6 or I've even seen +6 1/2... Most companies will sell you just the raw arm if you like. You just need to know what stroke shocks to buy and make sure there are no clearance limitations for different brands.. If I may offer up one other option The SoCal Fab kit.. Thad will sell you an arm kit in any config you like.. I think the raw arm is around $2000 (not sure) and complete kits are somewhere in the $4600 to $5200 range depending on shocks. He is using Summer Brothers axles.. Good luck and I'm sure what ever you go with you will be happy..

Very nice, where did you take the car out to?

I am very much looking forward to getting the FST kit installed as well, need to find a good place to go out and do a video for it.

Hey Socal Karts,
I have been looking at the LT kit you have and really like what I see in the photos. Do you know of anyone in the San Diego area that has your kit installed? For a lay person like myself, Can you help me understand what the difference is between the shocks mounting on the lower arm vs the upper arm is? Also, do you know if Walker Evans offers a shock for your setup?

Like the looks of your kit.How much over stock are your arms? Thanks
It's not my kit, but I have been researching lately. This one is a +5" each side. This is the only Lt kit they make for teryx.

Mounting shocks to the lower arm allow for more usable shock. Sometimes when you mount a shock to the upper arm it limits how big of a shock you can install and will limit the usable shock travel.
