Phoenix, Arizona - Even though ATV sales have fallen off a bit due the recent economic crunch, UTV sales are still going strong. The popularity of these vehicles has spurred manufacturers to produce UTV’s that are sportier and more user friendly than their predecessors that were used mainly as workhorses. Kawasaki recognized the need for a sporty, yet practical, and easy to use machine that could be enjoyed by just about anyone, in any riding situation, and has hit the nail on the head with 2009 Kawasaki Teryx 750 FI 4x4 and Teryx 750 FI 4x4 Sport UTV.

Kawasaki made several improvements to their Teryx 750 UTV line this year. The best improvement Kawasaki made to the Teryx is the addition of digital fuel injection. The new FI system contains a high-pressure fuel pump and a 32-bit CPU with six sensors to help regulate fuel efficiency, and the throttle body has been reduced to 34mm to improve low and midrange throttle response. New ignition maps have been added to improve torque and new fuel maps have been added to match the improved intake and exhaust systems. The timing has been changed on the ’09 Teryx as well to give it a more stable idle.

The 2009 Kawasaki Teryx now has a direct flow fuel injection system, which incorporates six sensors (coolant temp, intake air pressure, throttle position, air intake temp, vehicle speed, crankshaft angle) to provide optimum fuel delivery for increased power and fuel efficiency. Also, the airbox volume has been increased for 2009, but the fuel tank capacity has been decreased from 7.9 gallons to 7.4 gallons with the addition of a high pressure fuel pump for the FI system

The CVT system of the Teryx is impressive as well. There are new ECU settings for the belt warning systems when the vehicle is under excessive load or the RPMs are too high. Another change to the CVT system is the rerouting of the exhaust duct. It has been raised to 7.7”, which helps reduce water intake. Also, the CVT air intake duct has also been increased from 53 to 65mm to help keep things cooler.

All-new Aluminum CVT cover acts as a heat sink and the ducts sizes have increased and have been re-routed for better CVT cooling to help extend the belt life
CV Shaft’s diameters have been increased and splined areas hardened along with new plastic CV boots, and the torsion bar diameter has been reduced for better tracking over rough terrain

Another notable improvement is the much needed tilt cargo bed, which now comes standard on all models. We were also very happy to see that the airbox intake tube has been rerouted to give better protection and the airbox volume has been increased and redesigned as well, which provides better performance and decreased cabin noise. The front styling on all of the Teryx models is excellent and the addition of a bar type digital fuel gauge readout is a very handy improvement as well. We were also pleased to see that Kawasaki has added a new parking brake indicator that lets the rider know if the parking brake is still engaged before hitting the gas.
