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

    • And if the leftists get lucky at the convention?     You aren't against human rights, like income, health care, equality, LBGTQ rights, and stuff like that, right?  
    • You scale them, no?
    •   So, why bother with locks?  Honest people won't take your stuff even if the door is unlocked.   I am in the camp that I want to make it at least a little difficult for the crooks.   Especially since three people in our family have had their houses burgled and stuff taken.
    • The result right now is not good. One way or the other the toilet needs flushing
    • Mostly I talk about this with respect to the nonsense about multiple parties or no parties some on here seem so fond of.      It is all a fantasy.   Some new party could possibly take over an existing party, like Trumpism did, or even replace it like happened back in the day but in the end there will be two parties.     Perhaps a parlimentary system with multiple parties would be better than what we have, but, in my opinion, you can't get there from here.  It's like the calls for a Constitutional Convention.   Do you guys seriously think that could happen, and that the result would be good?  
    • I haven't gone up the old Grade, but do head to Outing via Emily and NE from there, and it is really nice. Hardly any roads to go across and little to no ditch riding. I have got to try the Old Grade, as I would think it is like that. We grouse and duck hunt up there now and then, but haven't lately. Great place with lots of public land and opportunity.
    •   But yet I countered with an actual study but you think your own speculative based opinion is better. OK then.     How very hypocritical.      I would end the discussion after that last statement too.
    •     I can guess it is not for humanitarian reasons.   Mexico has about had their fill of fighting the drug war for us, and are moving towards decriminalization.  If California legalizes weed, this would be enough to tip the scales in favor of decriminalization for Mexico.       For years now, Mexico has paid an extraordinarily high price in lives and social disruption for Washington’s insistence that North America’s drug problem be tackled south of the border, where the drugs are grown and transported, rather than primarily in clinics and halfway houses at home to treat the medical and psychological issues of users. Mexican President Pena Nieto.   Successive administrations, starting with President Nixon, have demanded ever-tougher border controls, aerial-spraying programs, and DEA-backed anti-“cartel” operations in Mexico. All those efforts and sacrifices have been for naught. U.S. residents currently export up to $29 billion in cash to Mexican traffickers each year to buy marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamines and heroin.   Forcing that trade underground has taken a terrible toll on Mexico in terms of violence, corruption and social upheaval. Since 2006, when President Felipe Calderón ordered his military to join the “war” on drug traffickers, Mexico has lost about 200,000 lives and 30,000 more have disappeared,dwarfing the civilian death toll in Afghanistan and Iraq over that period.   The majority of those killed and disappeared were victims of criminal organizations, but human rights organizations also report soaring rates of human rights violations, including torture and killing, committed by security forces.   The 2016 Global Peace Index, prepared by the Institute for Economics and Peace, estimates the total cost of violence in Mexico at $273 billion, or 14 percent of GDP, with no end in sight. Direct fiscal costs of fighting the war on crime were about $32 billion in 2015 alone. Yet the United States has contributed only about $2.5 billion since fiscal 2008 to Mexico’s drug war, under the so-called “Merida Initiative.” Mexico’s pain shows no signs of easing. The New York Times reported in December that Mexico suffered more than 17,000 homicides in the first 10 months of last year, the highest total since 2012. “The relapse in security has unnerved Mexico and led many to wonder whether the country is on the brink of a bloody, all-out war between criminal groups,” it said.    
    •   But In Del's defense, he only does this on things he would like to stay as is. When you are talking about legislation he is in favor of then it is the law of the land and can't be changed. When it is something that he dislikes, it can and should be changed.
