Brakes

If your Kawasaki Teryx brakes feel spongy, shaky, or downright sloppy, Everything Kawasaki Offroad is here to breathe new life into your vehicle's braking system. On most editions of the Kawasaki Teryx, it's normal for the brakes to feel a bit loose at first. They should stiffen up with use, however, and get harder as they heat up while breaking in. Many Kawasaki Teryx brake issues stem from a lack of understanding about the wet brakes used in the back of the vehicle. A lot of people don't know that they have to run wet brake fluid in the rear differential. If, for example, your Kawasaki Teryx e-brake sticks in the upright position, heats up, and burns through the brake fluid, it'll need more wet brake fluid to function properly. Similarly, if the rear differential has water in it, the rear brakes will quickly become faded. In addition to installing some aftermarket Kawasaki Teryx brake pads like the ones by Race Driven, flushing the fluid system can also help by getting rid of contaminants that cause the pads to glaze over. Because the rear brakes on the Teryx are internal wet disc brakes, it can be slightly difficult to replace them. And sometimes, the brake pads and brake fluids aren't the issue. The rear slave cylinder piston can also seize up, and replacing the entire cylinder might be your only solution. Whatever the case may be, however, the Kawasaki brakes and brake-related components you need are all available at one convenient place: Everything Kawasaki Offroad.

Breaking in the Kawasaki Teryx should never feel like stopping a bicycle by dragging your feet. So if you’re wanting to stop on a dime every time, we’ve got the Kawasaki Teryx brake systems and brake components for you here at Everything Kawasaki Offroad! Not only do we carry Kawasaki Teryx brass brake pads and sintered brake pads, but we also sell Kawasaki Teryx brake fluid, Kawasaki Teryx brake calipers, and Kawasaki Teryx brake master cylinders. So regardless of whether you’re a hill climber who wants more control during descent, or a speed racer who needs better braking around corners and hairpin turns, all your Kawasaki Teryx brake problems can be rectified with the brakes, braking components, and brake parts from Everything Kawasaki Offroad! 

Going fast is great, but if you’re unable to slow down, you’re in for a wild ride to say the least! So for safety’s sake, it’s important to have a robust breaking system – and the Kawasaki Teryx braking system is known for leaving much to be desired. While the Kawasaki Teryx wet brake (which is located inside the machine’s rear differential) functions well in moist and muddy environments, it does lack a certain je ne sais quoi. It’s difficult to describe, but the Kawasaki Teryx braking system has a drum-brake feel to it. Although it’s true that the most common Kawasaki Teryx braking problems can be fixed by either bleeding / burping the brake lines, replacing the factory Kawasaki Teryx brake pads, or properly adjusting the machine’s brake calipers, there are instances when riders require replacement brake components like master cylinders, auxiliary parking brakes, and braking discs. When self diagnosing your Kawasaki Teryx brakes, the first thing to watch out for is air in the brake lines. Empty brake calipers can present problems, but these are easily fixable if you remove the calipers from the mounts, compress the pistons fully, and then re-bleed the system with the pistons held in. Alternatively, you can rule out master cylinder problems if you’re able to get your brakes working by pumping them a few times. If the latter is the case, it could indicate that you have problems with your rear slave unit. To sort this out, you can bleed the brakes with your parking brake engaged, then bleed them again with the parking brake disengaged – tools like pressure bleeders can help with this.  

Bleeding your brakes is important, but with regards to the Kawasaki Teryx rear brakes, fluids other than Kawasaki Teryx brake fluid are needed. Because the rear differential houses the Kawasaki Teryx and Kawasaki Teryx 4 rear brake, it requires a different fluid type than the front differential. Many riders like to run Amsoil 75W-90 in the front diff, and Tractor Hydraulic / Transmission 5W-30 Oil in the rear differential. In this way, they’re not having to pay extra for OEM names or “ATV-UTV-specific” oils that are nothing more than rebranded versions of standard lubricants.

Because they experience a slight amount of wear every time you press on the Kawasaki Teryx brake pedal, the brake pads inside your UTV are bound to degrade over time, and eventually, they’ll become completely nonfunctional. And for this reason, brake pads for the Kawasaki Teryx, Teryx 4, and Teryx KRX are the primary entrees on Everything Kawasaki Offroad’s menu. So no matter if you’re after 2012 Kawasaki Teryx brake pads, 2008 Kawasaki Teryx brake pads, or 2017 Kawasaki Teryx brake pads, you’re sure to find what you seek at Everything Kawasaki Offroad! Our selection of brake pads include products from firms like EBC and Moose, which are well known and well respected in the off-road community. We sell individual brake pads for the Kawasaki Teryx, brake pad pairs for the Kawasaki Teryx, and complete Kawasaki Teryx brake pad kits for the front, back, left side, and right side of the vehicle.

At the end of the day, it matters not whether you’re on the prowl for a Kawasaki Teryx 4 rear brake kit, or a single Kawasaki Teryx KRX brake pad replacement, because it can all be procured through Everything Kawasaki Offroad! If it’s a Kawasaki Teryx 800 brake caliper you need, we have those. Or if it’s something intangible like a few Kawasaki Teryx parking brake adjustment tips, we can help with that as well! So reach out and never fret, because the folks at Everything Kawasaki Offroad are always here for you!
