So in the Kawasaki marketing stuff, they say:

"The Teryx 750 4x4 shares the long A-arm and narrow frame concept of its sport brethren to give it the maximum travel while minimizing wheel camber change. Featuring adjustable Kayaba suspension with gas-charged shocks, the sport-performance focused suspension of the Teryx 750 4x4 is designed to remain controlled even at top speed.

The wide-track frame is based on the same long A-arm concept found on Kawasaki’s sport ATV models, where the frame is made as narrow as possible so that long A-arms can be used. This configuration minimizes camber change as the long travel suspension tracks over rugged terrain for better performance."​

That sounds pretty good, so I decided to check it out and compare with a Rhino. Here is what I found:

Teryx A-Arm frame mounting point - center to center:
Front upper A-Arm mount points are 16 3/4" apart
Front lower A-Arm mount points are 14 1/2" apart
Rear upper A-Arm mount points are 15 1/2" apart
Rear bottom A-Arm mount points are 15" apart

In comparison, a Yamaha Rhino has the following measurements:
Front upper A-Arm mount points are 17 1/4" apart
Front lower A-Arm mount points are 17 1/2" apart
Rear upper A-Arm mount points are 16 1/2" apart
Rear bottom A-Arm mount points are 15" apart


This is what I measured. Image is the rear/upper on the Teryx @ 15 1/2"

Since the arms are longer than a Rhino's, I wonder
why the wheel travel is about the same???

Measured Teryx vs. Rhino arms. A bit difficult to measure exactly on the Teryx because my arms are still on the vehicle, so add a fudge factor there. Here is how I measured. Tried to take the line between the mounting bolts to the center of the spindle.


Rhino Front Lower Arm


Rhino rear Lower Arm

Teryx

Front Upper - 12 1/2"
Front Lower - 16 1/2"
Rear Upper - 15 3/4"
Rear Lower - 14 1/2"​

Rhino

Front Upper - 10 1/4"
Front Lower - 12 1/4""
Rear Upper - 12"
Rear Lower - 13"​

Yes it is 7.5 versus 7.3, ok it is more. but with that much longer arm length you would think maybe 8.5-9.5".
