My std bore kit comes with the pistons,stage 2 cams and valve springs for $850 retail,$765 members cost.The 840 is just as reliable with 100% no problems just like the std bore kit. The 840 comes with pistons,stage 3 cams,bigger head gaskets and valve springs for $920 retail,$820 your cost. The 840 has to be bored and re-nicasiled and that cost $500 more if you want us to do it. The std bore we did for Crowdog on here gained about 90% more hp to the rear wheels and the 840 was 135% on the one done for this site as their projuct. Both of these were 08 carb models done on Weller's dyno. Dasa Racing has built a 840 09' and is about to do the std bore also to have all the maping ready to go for both. They also have all the injectors and air box needs for you too.As far as longevity,no one know because the Teryx has only been out for two years. To date I have sold 420 of these kits,some have been on the Brute Force since 05' with no problems,and there where kits sold for the Teryx even before they came out. So what I am saying is there are Teryx's out there from day one with my 840's in them and are still going strong.

I would like to hear from some of you guys that are running these different kits and tell me what it done for your rides horse power and speeds where did you get them and if you did the work or who did, are you running oil coolers, or aftermarket fans and radiators Thanks for your time and opinions

I won't start a riot.

The issue you will have is you have a MSD and a 09 Teryx so you would either have to buy a kit that has a matching map or have whatever you install tuned by someone who is really good with the new MSD and there are only a handful of those people in the US at this time but that number will grow over time.

I personally like a stock bore kit and will be doing a map for a standard bore kit soon. It most likely will be the only kit we do a map for too.

I was already thinking the same thing Todd about the mapping and was thinking you had told me that you probally would not be doing a big bore. I was just wondering what some of the people with the big bores had for pros and cons. Todd your kits that you will be selling are fundys?? with my setup what kind of horsepower would I see.

:eek:mg: :smiley_SHOTS part:

:popcorn:


HAHAHAH I heard that!!

I had the FST STD Bore Kit in my 08 and it was a very nice power increase, I think I am going to go like you with the 840 kit this time, WTH. ;) I was actually considering the Muzzy's or the FST, maybe try the Muzzy's this time.

How much do you like the power Teee? Is the 840 really all that and a bag of chips on the trails or hill climbs? I would think low end torque is what I am after so it should be.

You won't be disappointed in the 840 magellan... I'm the guy that picked up your old 08. We raced them when we first got them back and my bike would put 1.5 bikes on yours out of the hole but your bike would come back and pass on top. At first i blamed it on my heavy ass bi/tri claw tires but i still knew better for as many standard bore/big bore brutes i've done... Took the carbs a part and i reckon i got in a hurry and my front cyl had a drilled jet and my rear one had the 155 I had back when the bike was stock with a few holes in the lid. After that there was no pulling back on top.

Standard bores are all the power you need but the torque and the power the 840's make is what get the adrenaline going.

Hi Shan, yes I remember you, glad you made it home safe and sound after driving all night. Thank you for the info, that STD Bore runs a lot better than stock, my 09 is a dog compared to it. I need to get my adrenalin going I guess with an 840. :)

they are cheaper because you dont need to bore and nikasil the cylinders so you save 500 dollars

The standard bores are fine, and a lot cheaper. I think if I wanted more low end grunt, I would do the 840 with the stage 2 cams - higher torque lower rpm, could be wrong, but I think it would have more low end torque, stage 3 cams are for more top end, that is just my opinion. I had looked at other places for prices and FST Mickey can't be beat, sorry....just the plain fact!
I have the 840 with nothing else but muzzy's, so I am missing out on top end with stock clutch, just don't want to do any more work to it. Of course I have the 08, so also have a carb kit and TPI valves from Hunterworks.
Oh yeah, just thought I'd add this...still stock factory belt and close to 2,000 miles....:yahoo:

How do I like it, well I damn near shit my pants after getting her broke in and opening her up, I am serious. I've got 1,200 miles on the 840 and I beat the ever living piss outa mine...:93C_peelout[1]:

Not one problem....yet.

Wells what odd is the Std bore kit from Fundy is approx. $1550 while Mickey's 840 kit comes to approx. the same, maybe even a little less. So what gives there?
$1328 for a 840 with the cylinders done.I have seen guys that paid that price for a std bore,then tried to sell them at the very low price of $1000. They couldn't understand why no one would take it for that. Might have something to do with my retail price still $150 less then that,let alone members pricing. I will admit prices are going up here soon.

840 all the way.

I drove my 840 very hard this past weekend at superstition mountain. As some of my rhino buddies said "The 840 is a beast". This thing flat out hauls a$$ and climbs hills, soft steep sand no problem. Actually, I had alot of spectators coming up and asking what do I have in this thing to make it climb so good.
However next trip at Thanksgiving, I will have my new DASA pipe for the BBk installed so I can get full advantage of my ported heads and a little more improvement.

I will admit with the 840, I have had to add some extra's to make sure not to overheat, BUT WORTH EVERY PENNY !!!! I am now running at 200 to 210 degrees full throttle climbing hills in the desert sand.

If I had to do it over again, I would still do the 840 BBK, NO QUESTION !!

I'm not questioning reliability of the 840 at all. In fact I was settled on spending the $$$ on the 840, but I have an interesting offer on the table for a Std kit. So I'm trying to educate myself and make sure I don't regret it.

3 months ago I was in EXACTLY the same place you are now. There is only 1 way I know how not to regret your decision. GO BIG ! You will not regret that choice. You MAY regret any other choice because in the back of your mind you will always wondering what if, what if. How many times to you want to build your motor? once....twice ...or ? Do the 840 and forget it! this is just my 2 cents.
