Well my friend and i went out for a ride in our teryxs and his teryx started to blow alot of smoke outta the front cylinder, (he has the dragonfire exhaust thats how we know its the front) and his temp light came on and started to flash.Just wondering if anybody has any idea what happend the exhaust smells like oil is burning.Heard anything from blown head gasket and fried rings and it had just gone in for its 20 hr service.

ya we did that and itll barely run now it pops and still blows tons of smoke outta that pipe.
we took it to the dealership to see whats wrong with it as soon as we hear whats wrong ill let you guys know

btw the dealership also jetted it and it still pops when he gets on it and lets off of it the took it back at the 20 hr svc and they were supposed to rejet it to get it to stop popping could they have misjetted it and leaned it out too much and burn a hole in the piston

Doesn't sound good...sounds like you might have bad rings on your front piston. How low was the oil in the case? Any chance you pulled the header off the front to see if there was oil in it?

no we didnt pull the exhaust or the airbox off the oil was fresh because we picked up the teryx from the dealer on Saturday from its first 20 service and inspection

Even with an air leak, have you checked your airbox on the smoking machine to make sure it is not a high fill level oil burning off by way of the intake and carbs?

I have oil in the airbox vids in my youtube link in my signature. Do you think this could be the issue?

Well, they already had 20 hours on it and no problems, until dealer did service (?) That would make me think dealer over filled oil also. Naturally the first piston is going to get the (first) overflow, if that is the case. Check your level, let us know so we can all help each other out here.

I talked with my friend last night. He said that they couldn't find anything wrong with the motor i told him to ask the dealer if they found oil in the airbox.

So the first piston would get the oil if they over filled the oil huh? Wouldnt it be sent to both at the same time?

I guess I did not say that correctly, maybe should have said "the first carb" would get the most oil in it, oil overflow is in the front of airbox. Yes it would receive the most oil because of location.

well that does kinda make sense now because the first time i saw him blow smoke was him coming down a hill. Would the oil foul the plug and make it run crappy

the dealer said that it was oil in the carbureator which caused it to smoke. but they dont know why his temp light came on

Look in the airbox and see if oil is there. If it is and you have no mods, then your oil level could be adjusted to fix it most likely before you have to augment your right foot gas pedal procedure.

Yes, it will foul the plug also. When (before) my airbox mod I was cleaning the plugs quite frequently...but then again...I was running the shit out of her....It was almost commonplace...I would just clean out the oil and clean the plugs at the same time...Don't know if that is how it was for other people...but that is what I had to do. After about 10 times I said that is enough...that was when I rerouted the oil bypass line to a catch can. Haven't had a problem since.

+1 I don't miss cleaning the oil out of the airbox at all. I have been through a lot of plugs for 240 hours... or at least I used to go through them before the catch can.
