I Have Just Installed A Hunter Works Jet And Air Box Kit (great Kit By The Way) And With One Tp Valve Open All The Way And The Other Half Way It Will Stall Out At 53 On The Speedo. With Both Open It Will Only Get To 56 BEFORE IT WOULD DO 61 Do I Need Another Hole In The Air Box. I Think Its Getting To Fat Up Top? I Also Have A Dynatek Cdi Also Form Hunter Works Non-programable

Any Help Would Be Great
Thanks, Chase

Puddle...69,...........I ain't seeing that. I have dyna, HWTodd carb kit, 27" tirers, and since carb kit, haven't made a top end run, but I'd guess shy of 60. Care to share your specific performance mods...I see you have 28" tires. And Chase08...getting 61 before the carb kit....just the cdi?

I was thinking the same thing.

I'm not interested in top end as much as quickness...torque. But they go hand in hand.....I think.

Also seems all Teryx's are not the same, but I'm wondering if it's all in the belt/clutch. Seems everyone does the cdi...then maybe some jetting....but clutch work...haven't gone there, and may not.

Then there is something REALLY different about each Teryx.....or the information we are getting here is not accurate.

I also remember someone with a gun getting 4 or 5 mph diff with a radar gun I thing it might of been a youtube video.

I think there is a bunch of good info on here, thats why all of us are here. I'm not worried about top speed all I want is to be able to have stupid fun.

i'm not trying to be disrespectful to anyone here but i don't see 68+ mph with the stock bore and cams. has anyone with stock bore and stock cams used a radar gun or gps to verify those speeds, or just the stock speedos, cause i think the speedos are off a bit. i think everyone here knows what i've done to my teryx and i only saw 58mph before clutch work, 68mph after clutch work, and 72mph with the 39mm fcr carbs. those speeds were all taken with a radar gun and gps to back each other up, both speeds matched. the 72mph pass with the new carbs i let off the gas before i topped out, it was still accelerating, anything 70+ is real scary in a sxs so that was enough for me. my teryx also got to those speeds very quickly i never took a long drive down the hwy to get those #'s, so maybe it is possible with the stock bore and cams i would just like to see someone back it up with a gun and gps, cause i'd like to know if i blew a bunch of $'s to go fast when i didn't need to!

Chase ... with clutch work....in low, with a stomp on the go juice from dead stop, are you lifting the front wheels? Now that would be fun. How many times do you have that you can even run that fast....so top speed doesn't interest me as much as ..q u i c k n e s s.
