you can definately pick up a teryx cheaper than any of the others.i have a buddy that bought a teryx a couple of months before i bought my rhino[that's it next to my rhino in my avitar.]it has held up very well.only problems he has had are self induced,belts,a-arm bushings etc. from running 30" tires.another guy we ride with just sold his 2009 rzr s and bought the 2010 teryx and is in the process of tearing it down,and bolting on all of his hop up parts.i'll keep you guys posted on how much he likes it.right now it only has about 2 hours on it.

If width is not an issue go for the teryx.A leftover monster edition for $8995 is a good price.I do like the updates on the 2010 now that the hood opens.Kawasaki keeps updating and improving the teryx making it hard to beat.What has Yamaha done for us lately?

Wow, my local dealer has 1 09 left in the crate (base red) that he'll sell for $8,778.66 plus MI 6% sales tax.
The dealer that has the monster for $8,995 is 3 states away and wants about $500 in assorted fee's. I think I'll just grab that 09 that's local.

The tyrex is junk. I have both a rhino and a tyrex, thought the tyrex is faster it not near the machine of the rhino. The tyrex has 14.5 hours on it and there are already tranny problems with it. The tranny is the weak ling to the tyrex. IMO the rhino is the best machine on the market. Just go to the Tyrex forums and look up tranny problems.

I have a Teryx ('08) and have had no issues. Granted, I learned from others on the sh!tty air filter (bad design) and air plenum (again bad design) and bought fixes for both of these (less than $100). My '08 with a CDI and high flow intake, does 62MPH and has a ton of low end torque. I like the added width just because it is more stable. The weight isn't an issue due to the motor. I expected issues with the '08, just because it was the first generation. Kawi seems to be addressing the issues on each newer model.

Rhinos are great machines. If your happy with it, then why change?

The tranny issues were very early '08s...bigger problem is the air filter allowing dirt past and blowing the engine!!!

Jump a Rhino and you will blow out your middle gear...

Don't listen to the jive about transmissions.There aren't any tranny problems.The problem you can have is burning up the belt with the big v-twin.NEVER try to reverse at high rpm,NEVER exceed 15 mph in low,know when to quit when you're stuck,and you won't have any problems.Honestly,are you going to let someone who can't even spell TERYX influence you?I gave you my opinion in my pm.I ride with THREE people who own them.If I didn't owe so much on my Rhino,I would be getting the 2010 TERYX myself.Don't get me wrong,I love my RHINO,it is very high quality.Just tired of getting my ass kicked by my buddies in their TERYX.

The middle gear support is a problem for the 660. I think Yamaha addressed this in the 700, but also moved the weak link to the through shaft...
