I am the owner of a Kawasaki Teryx KRX 1000 Special Edition. I am surprised that the author of this post having driven this machine as he said did not mention the clattering and clanging of the shocks. The noise from the shocks is constant and intollerable if you are riding on any trail. Smooth as silk on pavement or smooth dirt roads. If it weren't for this shock noise this is the perfect machine. Kawasaki and Fox are to prominate companies and should not tell customers that this noise is normal. Other reviews that I have read concerning this machine never mention this noise either.
