Possible RZR killer

15 posts in this topic

This is for the atv enthusiast like myself. It sounds as though a possible RZR killer may be on it's way this year and it's not a CanAm. grin

Coming from Roofer, my first guess would be that Kawi has something in the works.

But there already is a RAZR killer out there under the name of Redline.

No info that I have read yet. Just saw on another forum that there is a Sport model Teryx 4x4 with FI. I hope it's a smaller version that is narrower. That would be pretty cool.

That's funny you say that because I have read on some forums about honda coming out with a smaller version of the big red. I highly doubt it will be a RZR killer though.

Honda laugh

Anyways, this could be a possible big nothing for all I know. Just passing info that I seen.

I am hoping it is something close to a RZR. I saw some at the State Fair again, and the darn things are cool. I still have an urge for a fun 4x4 UTV, and the RZR fits the trails. I just don't care for the 800 engine that much.

Sure would be cool to see Honda do some sort of a cross between their new UTV and their old Pilots!

It would be cool but I wouldn't hold your breath. I think today is the honda dealer show so if they actually do do something like that this year we should know about it soon.

I saw a couple RZRs in action this past weekend and they sure look like fun, I'd like to see a manufacturer come out with something similar like a Teryx sport that Can-am one I've read about.

S.R. King, do you have the fuel injected model??

I have a new 08 750 Brute and really like it,

with a few exceptions (none of which are power-related).

Okay, thanks. BTW, I heard the 2005's have a recall

going on now for something on the front end.

Upper A arm, or tie rod ends kinda thing. My 2008

has similar issues. I have had one tie rod end replaced

already at 150 miles, and now there is excessive

travel in the handle bars again at 200 miles. This

time up and down, and not side to side. I will be

going to after-market front end parts from Gorilla

from here on. Another option is to use Honda 400EX ends

and 400R tie rods or just 400R tierods and ends....

I dunno? I did have the recall done on my 2005 shortly after i got it and I've never had any problems with it, The sterring is straight with no slop in the handle bars

Never had a problem with tie rod ends. The only problem I have had is the pesky buss connectors and my choke is sticking a little.

If you want new tie rods get them from American Star. $130

    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less.
