The Kawasaki Teryx is tough, no doubt about it. The go-anywhere do-anything nature of this beast is what makes it so attractive to you, right? But what happens when the terrain is suddenly tougher… When the terrain decides to bite back? Well… one of the most common terrain related issues to arise is that of a damaged Kawasaki Teryx Axle. The axle is an obviously important part of the UTV’s anatomy, including the CV boots as well as the axle shaft itself. So it’s safe to say that the axle on your Teryx is one of the most essential parts to ensure it is in perfect working order. But beyond checking and maintaining the stock axle itself, what else can you do? As the proud owner of one of the most off-road capable UTV’s out there, you likely know by now that there is no shortage of replacement parts and modifications for side-by-sides, and the Kawasaki Teryx is no exception to that statement.
Here at Everything Kawasaki Offroad, we have made axle shopping as simple as possible for you. When looking to replace a broken or damaged Kawasaki Teryx Axle, you could certainly start with a direct replacement such as the OEM Replacement Axle by TrakMotive. As an OEM replacement, a perfect fit is guaranteed. What's great, is it is also up to 20% stronger than the axle that came stock on your Teryx. It comes complete with the Kawasaki Teryx Boot as well, so no need to buy that separately. But what if you want something stronger? What if you wanted to do your best to ensure as little a chance of axle breakage as possible during your next overlanding trip? Well, on the opposite end of the spectrum we have the Heavy-Duty Axles Rhino 2.0 by Super ATV. Thicker, stronger, better. With a massive 4mm thicker axle shaft size, this model makes for a perfect Kawasaki Teryx Axle Replacement.
So, what about long-travel axles?
You may have heard that long-travel axles are a must have upgrade to your side-by-side. With your current axles and suspension on the Teryx, only so much is possible. You are confined to a certain size range of tires and wheels. The UTV also only has a finite amount of travel that is possible when turning the steering wheel, or driving over rocky terrain. Upgrading your stock axle for a long-travel model such as the Kawasaki Teryx Rhino Brand Long Travel Axles by SuperATV can make a world of difference. Not only will your UTV have a wider stance creating more stability over any terrain, but you will also be able to fit larger wheels and tires on the machine and add further stability, clearance and traction.
Thankfully, when it comes to the CV Boots that are included in all of these aftermarket Kawasaki Teryx axle replacements, the work is already done. The replacement axles all not only come with their new CV Boots, but they’re also already attached, which means less work for you in the long run.
With as much stress and abuse as your Kawasaki Teryx axles go through, even the strongest and best built models will eventually fail. If you’re someone who off-roads regularly, takes their UTV camping or overlanding, then having a spare axle as a backup plan might not be such a bad idea. There really is no way to know when an axle failure might rear its head. You could notice a crack or damaged CV joint while the side-by-side is on your trailer or in your garage. But, as life tends to do, the axle could also fail when you’re miles out on a trail with no help in sight. Thankfully for you, here at Everything Kawasaki Offroad, we have everything you need when it comes to a Kawasaki Teryx axle replacement so that you aren’t caught unprepared!
