I WANT ONE
I had a 05 V-Force (which had the engine braking) and an 06 Brute Force. LOVED the engine braking. Does the engine braking on the Teryx work as well or does the extra weight seem to hamper it??
I saw that article too. I really don't know what they are comparing it too but I have owned numerous quads before the Teryx. The only belt drives bieng a polaris 500 and a Bruter Force 650. The Kawasaki engine brake is above and beyond the poopoo I had. In 4 wheel drive the Teryx will just crawl down a hill. In 2 wheel drive it jumps a little till you give it a little throttle. On paved road in high 2 wheel it will slow you down just fine. I don't want a brake that will sling you forward or cause the rear to slide around in the mud or gravel. Actually Kawasaki's engine braking system is one of the main reasons I chose the Teryx over a rhino. Not that the rhino's have a bad system, I was just really happy with my Brute Force.I don't own a Teryx yet, but in reading one of magazine reviews it said the engine brake wasn't very strong. They loved everything else but this was one area they didn't like.
