Dreaming of my 1st UTV for Mountain Property

Tonya Pike

Recommended Posts

I am trying to take a crash corse in selecting the best UTV for my needs.   I recently bought a home bordering the  Chattahoochee National Forrest.    The primary use would be around the property and travel between neighboring homes.   All surrounding roads are gravel and there are several 4x4 trails in the area.   I initially was looking at electric models because of my limited mechanical skills and noise,  it seems only the Polaris is available and pricey.   I want to be practical…….but still be able to have fun and be the envy of my new neighbors with golf carts.  Help a city girl out?\

If you're not mechanically inclined, I would look at what dealers are nearby and do a search of their service reviews.  Stick to the main manufacturers, Polaris, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Can-Am and Honda.  Probably not going to find much in electric models no matter where you look.

This is the truth. Follow TapBoss' advice. You get what you pay for. If you cant afford a name brand as he outlined, don't buy anything and save your dinero til you can.

So.     I am choosing between 2 models right now.  A new single cab Polaris new equip as I want runs about 17K.   Or. A used Yamaha wolverine 4x   2021 192 hours /220 miles  20K.     I am leaning Wolverinebecause it looks so fun….  Can someone tell me how the Hours and miles stack up?……..  Is this as “low use” as it seems to me?

      OK, here's the mystery of the day. I was using the UTV the other day and the idiot light came on that said it was overheating. I immediately shut down and checked the coolant. No coolant! I refilled the overflow reservoir and the radiator and all was fine. 2 days later the light is on again. I rechecked the radiator and it was again empty? Bone dry? Now, here's the weird part, There is no coolant anywhere on the floor below the vehicle. I can't even see any on the frame. I have it up on the lift and am getting ready to start tearing into the bottom "skid plate" to see if the leak is in the hoses there. Any suggestions as to where to start? I have yet to begin and I am already baffled!

      Hopefully someone out there is a T-Boss 410 electrics expert or a Massimo mechanic is viewing this. I parked my 410 and it was working great. I came back a week later and attempted to crank it and nothing. Turned the key and no power. Figured it was a bad/low battery so I charged it. Still nothing. Attempted to jump start it and still nothing. Usually when I put the key in and turn it to the first position, the display comes on and I hear the ECU and other items boot. Now it is doing nothing. 
      I slowly went through the electrical system and found the main fuse attached to the starter relay, part 71602 (pic 1) blown. I figured replacing this fuse would fix my problem. It didn't. I then ordered a new starter relay thinking maybe that part had gone bad and caused the fuse to blow, but a new relay did not fix the problem. 
      I have found a work around for starting the machine. If I take one of the purple/black leads (pic 2) and insert one of them in the bottom right of the starter relay (pic 1 and 3) then the machine will get power even with the key in the off position.  I'm bypassing something but don't know what. I can use my right hand to hold the wire against the lower right of the starter relay, reach over and hold the brake with my foot, then take my left hand and turn the key and it will crank. As soon as I remove the wire from the relay the machine shuts down. I have even removed the power distributor box and it will still get power when I touch the wire to the relay. Of course this is not the way it should work but if I can't solve this problem somehow I may just have to rig a connector to the relay and bypass whatever is causing the electrical issue. Massimo has told me the purple/black wires on my model are not used.
      Any help in figuring what my problem may be or other items I can try?

      You will quickly see that I am new to this and don't quite know how to pose this question. I gave myself a Coleman 400 UTV for my 65th  birthday a month ago."To Yaya: From Yaya" I've noticed a couple issues. First, as I drive around our acreage, sometimes it just putters, almost sounds like it's going to turn off. The other issue is the lights on the dashboard that correspond with forward, neutral and reverse don't match up to the actual gear. Sometimes it does but most of the time it doesn't. What I mean is that when I put it in forward to drive, the reverse light will be on the dashboard light. Sometimes it will be the forward light. When I put it in Neutral, sometimes the light on the dashboard /N lights up and sometimes it doesn't. Lastly the gas gauge does not register. Although the tank is almost full, it shows E / Empty.
