08 T-eryx Resurrection

Ok I guess l'll blog my 08 T-eryx resurrection here and see this rivaval come together.
Short story i had a DRZ400s that was a blast to ride but it was sad leaving to have fun and leaving my kids (5yr olds x2) just playing in camp so put it up for sale once sold i wanted to stay on that amount budget and needed a 4 seater toy to take them out around the desert and dunes. i had already figured these old Dinos where around the budget and where four seat capable fitting for my needs and few days later i found this thing and now knee deep in the rebuild.

This is the Dino i picked up after scouring the classified all over the place this one had a good set of upgrades and stance i liked, few other where similar some with more some with less but nailed this one with it flaws and all picked it as it was made a fair offer and didnt question much.
and got it home with the PO's help, Great Guy!

it was looking nice, but now came time for the inspection, assesment and repair tune and some preliminary upgrades right away like that. well yes i would rather be riding it but without knowing how thing are is not my style. so going deep into anything thats questionable, seats, panels, hood, all off. learned i have to release the cage to get the hood off that will have to be addressed ASAP. so more time... agghhh. electrical was/is a mess that needs some attention.

Looks like a 2008? The PO definitely had some money in upgrades, what brand is the long travel kit?

Top of the line a decade ago, now retro is cool! I have a Dragonfire +6 about the same vintage on my 2011 and I'm thinking about going back to stock with 2" wheel spacers so it will fit in my enclosed trailer. I really like the look and performance of long travel kits, but the tires sticking waaay outside the body really sucks in the mud of which we have more of than sand in Nebraska! Have fun with your new to you toy, keep the Gen. 1s alive!

one thing i had to inspect rather quick was an engine miss or running on one cylinder. it had really old gas so could have been that, gummed up carb or fouled plug. dumped the gas, pulled the plugs and while there i did the compression test, this reaveled a front very low compression rear normal. wet test and still low. checked the valve adjustment a super tight and adjusting them didnt help none. bummer time to tear the top end down for valve job.

So after inquiring and some recommendations, the heads ended up at Benchmark Performance for rebuild and seeing that the motor already has standard bore pistons, the heads will be getting performance upgrades also!

I just bought a fully built 08 a couple months ago. fun thing to drive out in the sand dunes in glamis. its nothing compared to the newer 1000 turbo rzr or x3. but for what I could afford right now its still a lot of fun. I like the white on yours looks good.

sorry about one of them being sideways.
only plans i really have for it is a light bar up top maybe a some new seat harness. would like to put some color on it all black is not really my style.
i took out the whisper cores on the muzzy. but last trip i was having some issues i had no top end power. low and high gear were the same. so need to try and figure out that issue.
first trip it ran good. it will make it up olds little slow at the top but will make it. but had alot of fun in it. i hope it lasts a while and once my daughter can reach the peddles she can drive it.
i still have plans for a 1000 turbo rzr or can am but this is my stepping stone toy.
i have the long list of mods the original owner did to it. he bought it brand new in 08 and did tons of stuff to it over the years

I am currently working on installing the rear seat on mine for the kids.

What do you have listed for cooling system mods and do you have a temp gauge ?

i think the issue with olds is the whoops at the bottom, messes with the momentum. with the long travel kit i can hit them pretty hard.
original owner told me the bed delete kit helped alot as it saved alot of weight, the ice chest holder he built is pretty cool. its just me and my daughter so the 2 seats works good us.
i got a different set of paddles i wanted to try but then was having the issues with the power so once i get that fixed ill be able to tell the difference in the paddles

yes those are stu's on there now staggered paddles. those are the tires the original owner ran for along time. i also got some doonz paddles for it but have not really got to try those out. the doonz are a half inch shorter but an inch wider.

I totally missed the question about the cooling system mods.

TRD water pump impeller Maxima cool-aid coolant, lower thermostat and fan switch by pass (direct turn on) SDR massive aluminum radiator, Derale high output/low draw made in Italy massive fan, Earls 9-row perm-cool oil cooler, A&N fittings and steal braded lines, DASA oil filter sandwich adaptor and for good measure a back-lite Trail-Tech digital gauge to monitor the temps.

thats a built cooling system for sure. i was looking at the factory 08 fan and it looks like something that belongs on my old trucks dash board.
have been thinking of pulling the thermostat and just letting the fans temp switch act like the thermostat. and for sure upgrading the fan. or just try with the fan upgrade and see how it does.

Yea I am running the Doonz as of current its a rather heavy tire for a paddle ,they work .Those STU's look like a dope tire ,but it is almost like running a twelve cup which seems like lot of paddle for the T-Rex, but having never tried them i have know idea .I really havent got to ride much at all in the last few years ,so its been a minute since i have hit the dunes ,but in hopes of getting out there at some point I picked up a set of Skat Track Buffs that have been sitting in my garage .They are nice and light just need to swap them out .But before i did this i was looking into getting a set of Red label douglas rims to mount them on .My current sand set up are aluminum cast and they too are heavy ,saving some unsprung weight plays a big role in the dunes for the T-Rex as they are super fun cars in the sand .Having the cooling mods are key ! especially running in the dunes ,for me its the "setrab" external oil cooler with remote filter it increases the cars oil capacity from two quarts to around a gallon .50% is Huge when lack of oil is what plagues these small engines ,Benchmark made mine .Also i have the Dasa water pump impeller ,to keep things flowing .And last but not least is the old temp gauge to tell me if things are getting nutz or if they are where they are supposed to be .Love seeing the pics of the builds ,keep em coming .
