OK, I know from last year testing the T4 the results between the RZR4 800 and Teryx 4, I never got to see acceleration tests between the T4 and a regular RZR 800.......
1st I'm not bashing or gloating here, just passing along info. this is a standard 50 inch RZR 800 2 seater not the 4 and you see the results, the RZR did have driver an passenger in it, but still had a HUGE weight advantage. Kawasaki worked many hours getting the clutch and engine tuning right on the T4........

I like............He had some SAC(s) in the back of the REX too......... allright

A certain someone who had a 08-Z06...... Smiles mentioned to me last week...........He wanted to buy a new Rhino, only because he liked his old 06-660. I told him to go buy a Rex........value vs. dollars. Rex wins!!!!!!

very impressive but would rather see a rzr4 due to the fact the 4 seater is geared so much lower than a regular rzr. still that gives people something to compare too. now you can have a crowd with ya when you hear the words....Hey ya'll watch this shi#!

Results were about the same when testing, the RZR 4 was a little closer they both 4 seater's come out of the hole bout even till 10 mph then the Teryx pulls ahead about a length until 50mph. main focus was 0-40mph acceleration which is the unofficial "industry standard"

FYI::::
Both units with full tanks of gas and fluids they were weighed

T4 = 1627
R4 = 1334

difference of 293lbs

Not sure what a RZR 800 standard weighs full of gas and fluids

Anything can beat a bike if you take a stock one from factory and then do clutch work om the other until it gets beat. I wonderhow it would be if you pulled them both off the showroom floor. I don't really care about speed just saying

Heith the T4 in this video IS stock off the showroom floor, no clutch work, just the new centrifugal clutch that comes in the T4

It just may be coincidence but I have seen two Kawasakis with the crank burnt out and needing about 2200.00 spent on them here lately.

And RZR's don't ever have engine failures and drinking oil from dirt getting throught the airbox?

No, that's a Honda you're thinking of. They are the only trouble free ride out there.

Rzrs do have issues with that...is you dont keep good maintenace. The early ones did have issues with the intake boot splitting and sucking dirt.

Now, on to the Teryx. I have 3 friends who all owned 08 Teryxs. 5 engines were replaced between the three. Kawi canceled all three of their warranties. All the engines went at around 50 hour intervals. In 09, they changed the oil pickup and oil sump design. The 08 models, when ridden hard, DID have engine issues. They would never admit it, but changing the internals in 09 only really proves there was something they knew. Dragonfire new of the issues, and came up with a solution to the crankcase pressure and excessive blow by. Alot of the problem came from the engine "blowing" the oil out into the airbox, starving the lower end for oil.

Now, Im not bashing the Teryx, none at all. Id but a T-4 before any other 4 seaters. Just adding to what the other guy is posting....Id bet his friends Teryx is an 08 model, or it wasnt maintained.

I had a 08 Teryx and beat the hell out of it. It had almost 1800 miles and not 1 engine problem. I have a RZR now and would say the Teryx have a much better engine, frame, a arms, axles, hubs and etc.

first Teryx they sent me 2008.....305 hrs, 3800 miles when it was turned in no engine problems what so ever.....I DID change/check the oil regular and keep the air filter clean with plenty of oil.......

if these enigine were failing in 50 hrs, there was no excuse not to check the oil or do the right maintanance, did they check add oil before every ride? I doubt it.....I beat the crap out of that 08 here at Bstone and all but the first 50hrs were with dyna CDI, so the rev;s were humming most of the time.......anyway that was my experience

Please sell your Rzr, all you ever do is talk about how big of a pos it is....why have one? If you hate it, sell it and go buy your Teryx back.

Out of the three, the only one to lose only one engine was the least maintained. The other two were taken care of.....and Id say losing an engine in a cornfeild with his dad driving around picking up rocks wasnt being hard on it!! He gets oil free from being a spnsored atv-mx rider..it was maintained. After a weekend of riding we would have to adjust the valves on them to get them to start. Im not putting the Kawi down, I was posting to follow up to the other guy who posted.

Do you work for Kawi or something? You seem a little partial.

First off I never said either one is a pos. Just because I own one doesn't mean it's the best. All of them have their good and bad points. You have to get one that's the best for your use. For me it's the RZR because of the size. The Teryx is built a 100 times better. But I can't make a 60" wide fit a 50" gate opening I know I tried.
So just grow up and just admit that every thing you own isn't the best. :thatsright:and welcome to the real world
