    In 2014, Kawasaki decided to reroute the intake to the CVT. It is unclear why they did this, but many people agree that the intake from the 2012 - 2013 Teryx4 is the preferred design. This modification will work on the Teryx and Teryx4.

    There are two major flaws with the 2014 + CVT intake:
    1. It breathes air from a lower point than the 2012 - 2013 intake, which also means it will inhale water from a lower point
    2. It sucks hot air off the engine, which has proven to increase CVT temperatures
    Higher intake temperatures along with the risk of water and mud ingestion equates to a shortened belt life and possible CVT damage. The CVT intake design from the 2012 - 2013 Teryx4, raises the intake into the dash (equal to the engine air filter) where it will pull fresh, cool air.

    Here is a diagram displaying the parts needed for this modification. Also note the intake's orientation.

    Remove all necessary plastic in order to access the CVT intake. Remove the CVT intake.

    Part # 14073D, along with the two clamps (92170) are installed here. NOTE: These parts are present on the 2014 - 2015 Teryx, but the rubber coupler has a different part number on the 2014 - 2015 models.

    Assemble the lower section of the intake to this point, prior to installation.

    Remove the top portion of the dash.

    Install the lower section of the intake.

    It's a tight squeeze, but the CVT intake will slide behind the engine air intake and wire harness.

    In order to install part # 14073, it may be necessary to loosen the dash and passenger side floorboard. There are two bolts inside the glove box that can be removed. This will allow the plastic to flex more easily. Slide part #14073 into place and tighten the clamps (92170).

    The diagram shows part numbers 92009 and 92015 attaching at the point where these ground wires connect. We decided not to do this. Instead, we lined up the hole in the intake tube with the back of the ground wires bolt and used a high strength zip tie to secure part #14073.

    Go back and check/retighten all 4 clamps (92170).
