    2012 Kawasaki Teryx4 Yellow

    Kawasaki, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, has issued a recall for 2012-13 Kawasaki Teryx4 UTVs.

    According to the recall notice, either of the front tires could deflect a foreign object (like a stick or rock) into the left or right floorboard. This could result in the object breaking through the floorboard and protruding into the foot rest area of the vehicle and, which could potentially lead to injury. Kawasaki has received four reports of debris breaking through the floorboards, including two reports of injuries to riders’ toes and thighs.

      Hot Rods Cranks and Rods

      If your Kawasaki 700 V-Twin based ATV or UTV is ready for a full rebuild, Hot Rods offers a new line of heavy duty OE replacement crankshafts, connecting rods, main bearings and seal kits that fit the Kawasaki Brute Force 750, KFX 700, Prairie 700, Teryx 750, and Suzuki LT-V 700 Twin Peaks V-Twin engines.

      Hot Rods claims that its crankshaft is both stronger and more affordable than the OEM crankshaft. Depending on customer needs, the crankshaft can be purchased with or without Hot Rods’ replacement connecting rods, which can be ordered separately. Hot Rods’ bearing and seal kits use the plain-style main bearings that are only available through Kawasaki if the customer buys the engine case, thus the Hot Rods kit is one way to save some money if a rebuild is necessary.

        Kawasaki Mule Electric Left Side

        When we first laid eyes on the Polaris Ranger EV nearly five years ago, we thought we’d seen the beginning of a big electric push from the major manufacturers. Save for BRP’s very quiet release of the Can-Am Commander EV two years ago, we clearly misjudged the direction off-road manufacturers were headed.

        For fans of electric power, however, all may not be lost as Kawasaki recently filed patent documents for an electric UTV, which you can see for yourself here.

          Kawasaki Teryx King of the Hammers

          Lined up against a field of heavily modified Side-by-Sides, Kawasaki’s Casey Currie piloted his Kawasaki Teryx4 stock 750-class engine to finish third in the 2014 King of the Hammers (KOH) UTV Pro Class.

          Currie, with a factory-spec 749cc V-Twin powering his Kawasaki Teryx4, beat out 23 challengers in the fully-modified Side-by-Side class.
