2017 Teryx4 LE

never owned a side by side or anything this new to be honest but on sat June 15th picked up a 2017 teryx4 le with 713 miles on it. Came with a kfi 4500lb winch, full windshield and roof.

Put about 40 miles on it since with the wife and my dad hes got a 2017 rzr900s so we followed him around and got to see the trails I hadn't visited as a kit.


hopefully all I want to do is put 5 matching tires on it size 27x10x14s with a spare mounted in the back. Still have the warranty til 3/2020 so just want to ride it.

When ever I get a new to me vehicle I usually just change all the fluids and filters I can to start over. Maybe overkill but it was like $66 for front/rear dif Kawasaki brand fluids, Kawasaki 10-40engine oil and a hiflo oil filter from rockymountain atv. so at 749 miles I changed the fluids and filters. It had a napa oil filter so hoping that's a good sign of at least the 20hr initial service. all the fluids looked new but im ocd.

I really like how accessible everything is and how easy it was to change those fluids at least. I added just over 4 quarts and have a 5th quart as a just in case as with most my vehicles etc.


Have one question that haven't found the answer too. my fuel gauge either flashes empty or always reads full and it seems there is always crazy pressure/vaccum in the fuel tank when I fill up.

Is this because I need to do the fuel vent mod I read so much about? or is there something else I need to check? I have almost a year on factory warranty left so im not too worried but just found it odd.

Its bone stock just with a winch, windshield and roof.

In my quest for knowledge I need some input from experienced teryx4 owners.

I am thinking of getting five 27x10-14 STI Chicane RX tires. 8 ply radials and either getting 5 wheels or just a steel wheel for the spare. However the only steel wheels I can find are 14x7 and that seems like a narrow wheel for a 27x10r14 tire?

here is the link for the wheel I was thinking getting one or five of:
https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/t...8633&idd2=5189

4/137_12mm ITP Steel Wheel 14x7 4.0 + 3.0 Black

Fits: 2017 KAWASAKI Teryx4 800

Part# 1087260099 | Mfg Part# 1422319014B


Anyone see fitment issues with the tire I am looking at? I would really prefer to just buy one for a spare for now but im not into the flashy wheels. I've always like black and darker colors on toys.

thanks!

Thanks! Its been a blast and a great addition to the family. I started out on little old Honda 70cc three wheelers, then to motorcylces then to four wheelers (quads) then to first/second gen Toyota pickups and 4runnners. I still have a heavily modded 84 4runner but not many places to take those anymore and the side by side is smaller/easier to transport/work on and the 4dr has been super fun for nephews and friends. Since you have 300ish miles more than me, have you added any sound or heat insulation? research and experience shows that's about the only real complaint but I haven't been bothered a lot but it would be nice to reduce the sound. the rzr is beyond more quiet but the rear mount engine keeps sound out of the cab compared to the Kawasaki etc.

Well after getting tired of using a equipment trailer to haul the teryx4 around scored a demoed 18ft rv tandem axel trailer for $200. So far not much work done but:

new tires and scuffed/painted the wheels, got some fenders for local agricutlrue store and cut about 1.5ft off the back. Have braces welded every 2ft and went over all the factory welds and had to grind off/re weld some.

Have 5/8s plywood, light kit, safety chains ready to be installed. Tomorrow gonna finished sanding and painting. When done I should have less than $800 plus my time for a 13.5x6.8ft deck tandem axel trailer. figured tandem 5 lugs isn't needed for a teryx4 but its heck of a lot better than $2k plus for a 2k rated single axel 12ft trailer from the 7 dealers I've looked at....

Does anyone have a side mirror brand/type that works with the oem full windshield? I am thinking of doing that vs the rear view mirror. I am going to do a temp spare tire mount that will block the rear view. There are tons of cheap china brands but looking for one others have used with success that fits with full window etc.

Believe it or not none of the ones I've found have a warning about not working but some of the brackets look huge so it doesn't appear. I may just make my own if there isn't one a few people have used and liked. That way I can fold it in for trails and when I hit the road I can fold it out/tighten it etc.

Well had to cut a fun trip in half to take care of the dog left at home. So.... now he can come with us. With some plywood, foam, and pleather type fabric made a rear drivers platform for the dog. It’s nearly 3 times the size of the regular back seat and gives me storage room under on floor.

Got some ideas from I believe the guy who runs vetnets to just be fair with credit lol.

Previous owner put it on. I had to do some research to figure out what it is called but its a quadboss front rack. They are made for various other units too. quadboss, ebay, utvdirect all sell them. One thing to caution though.... Put some rubber under the arms that reach from the bottom of the front windshield that sit close to your hood. My drivers side wore a nice cut in the orange hood. Wished I had looked closer at earlier but the damage was done before my ownership. Cutting a small rubber hose would have solved it though.

Also an update on the teryx4 trailer. got decking cut, added tie downs, and got bored so added a cool retractable tie down in the rear. I may add more on the front and notch the deck for fun but not sure yet.

little more sanding, then prime/paint.
trailer wire
new tires will be here in a week. the freebes are way more cracked then I thought.
weld safety chains. (in the bags on the trailer now)

Nice work on the trailer. I built a single axle one like that myself several years ago and I have another one to build now thats a double axle and 22' long. I plan to build it to hold two SxS's. I would caution you on painting the wood, you will only cause it to rot 5 times faster. On my last build I used decking boards laid across (One 16' decking board cut in half gets you two boards). I welded angle iron to the the side of the trailer frame to create a pocket for the boards to slip into. Once decked, I welded a second angle iron to the opposite side to hold the boards down. The boards are treated and without paint, have so far lasted ten years.

I should clarify. Im only sanding/priming/painting the metal. I have some oil based outdoor stain/treatment im gonna brush on the edges and roll on both sides and let it dry for a day then drill/attaché it to the frame. But I have heard similar with paint how it doesn't seal so it can trap in moisture and accelerate rot. it wont be under cover in winter either so I may just put a cheap tarp to at least keep the wood dry but we'll see lol.

Trailer is all done right before the end of most of my riding season hahaha. while I don't know the "official weight rating" I know its got tandem 3500lv rated axels, e rated tires and 6in channel iron for the main frame and bracing every 2 ft lol. Should be more than enough for a little ole Teryx4 and general utility use. I do need to grind the fresh paint next year to add some stake pockets but was only able to spend about 1 day a week working on it and just wanted it registered and road legal lol.

frame sanded/primer and painted
new seals, bearings, races, plywood decking, generic light kit,
4 tie down points front and 5 in the rear one is a little hide away in rear visible in one of the build up pics. Gonna be on the look out for a small tool box and probably just do one of those spare tire mounts you see bolted around the tongue.

Anyone heard of stallion atv ramps? I ve used etrailer for a lot but these looked nice and affordable.

Almost all local shops, harborfreight, home depot have 1500lb max ramps before you get into heavy metal ones for trucks etc.

I think legally speaking, you take the combined capacity of the axles, have the completed trailer weighed empty and subtract that weight from the axle capacity to get your overall weight rating. But yeah, MORE than plenty to carry a Teryx

We kind of looked into it. Completed empty trailer not including spare tire weighs 1040lb on the scale. Hooked up to the truck shows 1020 so I'll be able to slide it more forward for better tongue weight and find the best spot etc. we kind of pre loaded it to see how it fit and welded the tie down hoops in the best spots and added extra for fun. we removed little over 1.5ft, and added 4 more cross braces. It has two 5 lug 3500lb axels and the original hitch says 5k/lbs. so it didn't quite add up and I know the travel trailers get a lot of "strength" from the structure of the living quarters. The DMV here just wants to see it having lights and not look like its some 2x4S bolted together.

Figured for just safety purposes 2500-3k max weight would be a good rule of thumb. Its got 6in channel iron for the frame and the 18ft car hauler with a 10k rating only has 8in channel iron. I know its a bit more Apples to Oranges but ya plenty enough for the teryx4 and some lighter supplies etc.

I can't remember brand or where I got them but I have aluminum ramps rated for 3,000. They are extra long and fold. I have a 20' flatbed that was a camper in a former life and the deck is over the tires. I have to climb higher to load. I might have got them from Etrailer but I didn't find what I have after taking a quick looksee. Homemade trailers are cool and fun to build.

Yup. I've got a 22' camper frame in the back yard right now I'm planning on building into something that will hold two Teryx.

If I could figure out how to post pics I would share mine with you... I'm electronically challenged. I would think 22' will handle two 2-seaters for sure. I can get my T4 and 2 ATVs on the 20' deck with room to spare. It's actually a 19'6" deck.

The difference in length between the T2 and the T4 is only inches at best, so 22' would easily carry two T4's.

To post a pic, scroll down slightly from your text box, then simply drag and drop your image into the bar that says "Drag files here to attach!" Be warned though, you only get limited space, so take some time to down-size your files before posting. I provided some tips in this link that you might find helpful
