  1. Ride Review: As the owner of a pretty tricked out 2008 Kawasaki Teryx, I am very familiar with the Teryx. My Teryx did not stay stock long, but I recently spent three days in a bone stock 2008 Teryx on a ride to the Grand Canyon. The 2008 Teryx is a great machine, but my biggest complaint was that it came out with carbs instead of fuel injection. In less that a year since the first Teryxs hit dealer floors, Kawasaki dealers are already selling 2009 Teryxs with EFI. The New digital fuel inject on the Teryx is really nice. The engine starts right up and idles smoothly. On acceleration, the 2009 Teryx felt more crisp and seemed to get up to top speed a little quicker. While it is not a night and day difference, I definitely preferred everything about the EFI on the 2009 over the carburetors on the 2008. Next up on the list of what's new is a fuel gauge. I know it doesn't seem like something to get that excited about, but I do some long distance rides, and the fuel level display takes the mystery out of "I wonder how much fuel I have left?" The Teryx Sport has upgraded aluminum wheels which not only look much better, but are also 2.2 lbs. lighter than the standard steel wheels. Losing unsprung weight not only requires less energy to get the tires spinning, but also helps the suspension work better. And as a little bonus, the aluminum wheels are actually strong that their steel counterpart. Suspension is on the 2009 Teryx Sport has a few upgrades as well. The gas-charged Kayaba shocks have reservoirs all the way around to help reduce fade in rough terrain. The preload adjustment is step-less, and they have fully adjustable rebound and compression (high and low speed) damping. Although we did not have any opportunities to jump the new Teryx Sport, we did get into some nasty whoops and hard g-outs. I felt the Teryx Sport suspension handled the terrain better than a standard Teryx suspension. The ride through the light chop was a bit smoother than a standard Teryx and when we got into the whoops I felt a little more comfortable as well. Although I was able to bottom out the front shocks on a few hard g-outs, a standard shock would have gone to the stops more often and with more force. Overall, even though I did not spend any time trying to fine tune the adjustments on the new Sport shocks, I think they are a worthy improvement over standard shocks. The Lime Green plastic on the Teryx Sport is a great color. Much more sharp than the drab green found on the 2008 Teryx. And with all the UTVs out in the dunes in Glamis, there is no doubt that you are in a Kawasaki when you are driving it. The 2009 Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI 4x4 Sport has a MSRP of $11,899. A full list of all new 2009 Kawasaki Teryx improvements and photo galleries can be found here.

  2. Nice SxS 2014 Arctic Cat Wildcat 700 Trail Edition - ATV Rider Magazine
  3. Hey guys, Here's the initial test review of the Polaris RZR 4 Robby Gordon Edition in ATV World Magazine: ATV WORLD MAGAZINE - North America's Best ATV/UTV Magazine Here are copies of the actual pages in the magazine: You can download the complete article pdf here: http://www.utvreport.com/pics/atvworld/rzr4/initialtest/initialtest.pdf Here's the article in text form with larger pictures: When Polaris first introduced the RZR in 2008, the recreational UTV and Side x Side industry was changed forever. As if that wasn’t enough, Polaris introduced the RZR S in 2009, which was leaps and bounds ahead of the competition with a high output factory long travel equipped sporty side x side. For 2010, Polaris has gone above and beyond once again with the release of their all-new RZR 4 Robby Gordon Edition. So, if you’re like us you’re probably wondering some of the following whether you own an existing UTV or not: - Does the engine have enough power? - Does the extra wheelbase cause you to high center or hang up more? - Can you really fit 4 people comfortably for an entire day’s ride? - How is the turning radius? - How well does it fit in tight woods trails? - How well does it rock crawl? - How does it do in the sand? So, to begin, let’s jump right to the things we love about the new RZR 4 Robby Gordon Edition: - Similar fit, finish, and comfort level of the existing RZR and RZR S - Tilt Steering Wheel - Digital Dash - High & Low Beam Lights - Simple 1-position On-Demand AWD System - Comfortable bucket seats front and rear - 4 cup holders - 12v power sockets front and rear - RZR S Suspension with heavier duty Fox Podium X 2.0 shocks Here’s what we’d like to see updated for next year’s models of not only the RZR 4 but also the regular RZR and RZR S: - Parking brake - 6 tie down points in the bed - Integrated hard sided lockable glove box And, specifically for the RZR 4, we’d like to see Polaris utilize the additional space under the rear driver’s side seat for added storage, because you can never have enough space to store stuff when out riding the trails. And, last but not least on the RZR 4, we’d like to see a quicker steering ratio and power steering due to the extra length and additional weight on the front end. But, we know what you’re really wondering is how it drove out on the trails, right? But, before we jump in with our full test, we’re happy to say the new Polaris RZR 4 Robby Gordon Edition is an all around amazing sport side x side. As you can probably imagine, the extra size has its limiting factors, but it also has some very beneficial factors, as well. So, to begin our test, we headed out to the Brimstone Recreation area in Huntsville, TN to test its prowess in tight woods trails. Part of what we were wondering is how many times we’d have to do 3-point turns to make it through the trees. We were wondering if we’d get hung up making hard off-camber turns by catching trees on the roll cage. We also wanted to see just how often we’d get hung up on steep water breaks and big rocks. And, finally we wanted to get the feedback of other riders on the trails with us that had other brands and models of UTVs for some honest comparison feedback. In the end, we were pleasantly surprised with the way the RZR 4 handled tight woods trails. We had folks with existing RZR’s, RZR S’s, Rangers, Prowlers, and Rhinos drive and ride in it, and their responses were all very similar. Engine The engine is peppy when compared to non-RZR machines, and although not as fast as the RZR or RZR S, it seemed to have plenty of power to everyone that drove it. And, for those power hungry folks, there are plenty of options to increase the power of the High Output (H.O.) 760cc engine ranging from turbos to all sorts of bolt-on parts that can fit within your budget. Extra Wheelbase It didn’t get hung up on the tall and steep water breaks like everyone expected. Although you could feel it drag the undercarriage at times, there always seemed to be tires on the ground that were able to pull you through without getting hung up. The positive attribute to the extra wheelbase is that it rides very smooth, soaking up the bumps at both high and low speeds with little to no feedback through the steering wheel. When compared to the other 2-seat UTVs, some even mentioned it was possible to get hung up easier on the steep faced water breaks in their shorter wheelbase UTVs because their tires would be off the ground more. Comfort Factor Although we didn’t test it with 4 adults in the tight woods, we did put 3 adults in to drive it. Three of them currently drove Rhino 450’s, and they were pleasantly surprised at how well it rode, how comfortable the back seat was, and how much quicker it was when compared to the Rhino 450. Upon initial inspection we originally thought the rear seats would only be comfortable for small adults or children. But, after spending hours in the back seat, it’s truly as comfortable as the front seats with a nice grab bar running the entire width of the RZR 4. Turning Radius Our initial assumption was that we were going to have to constantly stop and make 3-point turns to make it through the tight woods trails. But, to our surprise, we only had to do this a couple of times in a full day’s ride. And, for comparison sake, the one guy with a Ranger XP had to do it in the same places we did. But, you will find yourself working the steering wheel more because of the added weight of the machine and what appears to be the same steering box ratio as a regular RZR. We’d like to see a quicker steering box ratio and power steering on next year’s models to make weaving your way through the woods a much more enjoyable experience. Overall Tight Woods Impression The astounding response we received from everyone that rode or drove the RZR 4 was “Wow, I didn’t expect that!” I think what we all realized is that our assumptions were nearly all wrong and that Polaris has really done their homework with the new RZR 4 Robby Gordon Edition. It’s obviously not as nimble as a 2-seat UTV or ATV in the tight woods, but for most people wanting to take their families out trail riding, the positives far outweigh the few times you’ll have to back up or slow down to weave your way through the trees.

  4. I would like to thank Quadcrazy for their part in getting me my new pipe. I just received the HMF 2010 pipe. When I received the box it was in perfect condition, and upon opening the box I found the HMF actually spends time packing the box. It was carefully wrapped and secured so there was no movement. From first glance you can tell the superior craftsmanship, beautiful welds and sealing job. This pipe looks flawless. From the extremely shiny end cap to the nice black powder coat on the canister, this pipe looks like a work of art. More info to come as I install.
  5. Here is a reveiw for the Sportsman XP 850 & 550.2009 Polaris Sportsman XP 850 & 550 Review
  6. The first thing you notice about the Raptor 700 is the easy starting. You never have to touch the throttle. Just hit the start button. Throttle response on the machine is extremely crisp throughout the RPM range. It is so responsive that it can easily put you on your butt if you are not ready for the power. When I first rode the Raptor I thought that the power was extreme, and I still do. All around the Raptor 700 is very comfortable. The relationship between the bars, seat, and pegs allow the rider to have plenty of room to move around. While sitting my knees were actually at a bit of a downward angle, making it easy to transition from sitting to standing. Overall I would call this thing very twitchy. I found it very easy to ride all of the trails all day in second gear. I used third a few times, but never got into fourth while trail riding. The hill climbs that I attempted were rather easily done. I hit it in second and actually had to get off the throttle at the top because the machine had gained so much speed. [link=http://www.southbayriders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25615]Hill climb vid by NY-VMax-Joe[/link] I give the machine an 8 of 10 in my inexperienced view.

  8. As 2008 comes to a close, UTVGuide.net celebrates a successful first year on the internet. Created in December 2007 as an off-shoot from DuneGuide.com, UTVGuide.net is now visited by nearly 50,000 visitors each month. “The UTV market segment is a very exciting place to be,” remarked Jon Crowley, owner of UTVGuide.net. “The sport UTV market took off five years ago with the introduction of the Yamaha Rhino, and new models and manufacturers are hitting dealer showrooms at an incredible pace.” Just a few of the exciting things that happened in the UTV market during the last year include: Kawasaki’s introduction of the 2008 Teryx and 2009 Teryx Sport; Polaris was first to the market with factory long travel on their RZR S; and Arctic Cat set the bar high for power hungry sport users with their new Prowler 1000 XTZ. UTVGuide.net was thrilled to be invited to the 2009 Arctic Cat 1000 XTZ press intro and the 2009 Kawasaki Teryx Sport press intro during 2008, and we look forward to participating in many more UTV model intros next year. Highlights for the year at UTVGuide.net include being chosen as a test driver for Side x Side Action Magazine’s 1st UTV Shootout, and their Kawasaki Battle of the Builders. And few incredible UTV trips rounded out 2008. In May, we traveled south of the border to Baja with Off-Road Warehouse and Side x Side Action Magazine for the 1st Annual Mexico UTV run. And in October we made a trip to the Grand Canyon that won’t soon be forgotten with Side x Side Outfitterz. Our UTV stable includes two project vehicles, a 2008 Polaris RZR and a 2008 Kawasaki Teryx. Both UTVs have been extensively featured in Side x Side Action Magazine and we are blessed to work with so many great companies that helped us on the projects. Over the next month, the number of UTVs in our stable will more than double with a new Kawasaki Teryx that we are building up for the King of the Hammers UTV Competition, a long term demo of a Polaris RZR S, and a demo unit of the new 2009 Polaris Ranger HD. 2008 has been a great year for us. As we look forward to the next year, we’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and hope that everyone has a successful 2009.

  9. OK,,,,,So I had a little time this morning and thought that I would put the CLEANING Wash to the test...... For my test I took my 350X(Which is always pretty clean) that had a little Dust on it and I took a Rear Fender off my New Project which was just UGLY Dirty from sitting out in a Field for Several yrs..... I followed the directions on the bottle.... (BTW....This is what is left in the Bottle after Testing) Then went to work..... I immediately noticed while I was spraying the product that it was "Soaping Up"...Kewl,,,,This stuff is actually doing something...LOL....I sprayed EVERYTHING!!!! Now mind you I am pretty Sceptical when it comes to these kind of things.....Im a Hands on, a Little Elbow Grease and Love never hurt anyone kinda guy....But then again Im Lazy at the same time....I was told that with this product you didnt have to LABOR to achieve Satisfaction and to me that was enticeing enough....LMAO!!!! With that being said,,,,,Here are my Results..... For the Motor which is where you would normally get all your Grime for a 27 yr old machine it did what I expected it to do....Took the dust off,,,Not sure if that was the water hose or the product though.....Ive never really scrubbed on the motor in the last 5 or so yrs and it basically looks the same as when I hose it down after a typical ride.... Now we move on to the Plastic WOW!!!!! This stuff (in my eyes) makes a HUGE difference!!! After Rinsing I could see the water Beading up...Kinda like a Wax....Some of the Stains on the Rear Red plastic seemed to disappear!!! On my White plastic tank I had some Fuel Stains.....THOSE ARE GONE!!!! The Fork Boots(If you ever tried to clean these you know they are a PITA!!!!) CLEAN!!!!!!! And OMG!!!!! That UGLY White Rear Fender???? While it didnt take ALL the Grime off,,,,,,It made a DRASTIC Improvement!!!! In closing..... I would recommend this product for your Plastic use if you have average to above average Plastic.... I would like to thank the XtreamClean Team for their Generous Donation for the Testing of this Product....I had a Friend come pick up his Trike yesterday and gave him a bottle to try on that....I also gave him the Mud Guard because Honestly,,,,I dont ride in Dirt....He said that he would use it and Review it for me.....So Stand by for a SECOND Opinion!!!! Before Wash Wet before Application AFTER Application I went ahead and did a second application on the white Rear Fender.....I didnt notice a rear difference....Well,,,,Maybe a little......
