Like with any aftermarket side-by-side accessory, there are both pros and cons to running a Kawasaki Teryx long travel kit. But if you can stomach the biggest drawback associated with a Kawasaki Teryx or Kawasaki Teryx KRX long travel kit (the price), the remainder of the cons pale in comparison to the benefits that a long travel suspension setup will yield! For one, long travel kits like the ones by SuperATV and HCR will widen the stance of your vehicle, giving it more stability and articulation. With the latter long travel kit by HCR Racing, you’ll also get extra-beefy a-arms / trailing arms for more ground clearance, super-tough RCV long travel axles, and King 2.0 adjustable pure-race shocks with remote reservoirs. Whichever kit you decide to go with, you’ll be more than happy with a Kawasaki Teryx long travel kit from Everything Kawasaki Offroad!
While we could heap loads of praise onto long travel setups all day long, there are a few cons other than cost that should be mentioned. The wider stance and higher ground clearance that long travel kits provide will allow you to run 37” tires with ease, but this extra width can be a slight drawback in some situations. With a wider track width comes a decrease in the UTV’s turning radius. Therefore, you’ll need more space to turn around – which can be tricky on tight and windy trails. Additionally, with a Kawasaki Teryx long travel kit, you’re going to get more mud, water, and debris thrown up at you from the ground. Fender flare extensions can help with this, and it’s a complete non-issue for those with full cab enclosures. If you're a person who does some serious crawling, mud bogging, or riding on rutted-out trails, you’ve got nothing but good things in store for you with a Kawasaki Teryx long travel kit from Everything Kawasaki Offroad!
