When you take the spring off, is it straight or bowed. It should be straight. If its bowed, it's defective. Also check to see if the ends are square with the body. If not. you should be able to grind them square. If they are square and straight, they should clear the body.

The stock shocks are not that great. Replacing the shocks should be on your future upgrade list. Easiest thing would be to find a used one and replace your shock. Keep your old shock for the day when you blow a shock, it will happen someday! Shock replacement was my NEXT upgrade until I broke the tranny (my fault).

I have tried calling and always get an answering machine. I finally started dialing 0 for the extension and get to talk to some one and then get transferred to the proper person. I have not had good luck with them though. Last fall after only having my T2 for only 2 months I called and told them about the problem I was having with the rear diff and got no help. After reading all of the posts on this and other sites I Know they were aware of the problem and did not help. I called and talk to I think Jeff and he told me he would get right back to me well that was 5 weeks ago. That is the kind of service I have consistently gotten from Joyner. I was seriously thinking about starting a dealership but not a chance in hell now. I hope you have better luck. Sorry about the rant but I am VERY UPSET with the service or lack there of.

When I researched utvs last year trying to decide which product to buy ,I came across the Joyner line .I found

numerous blogs and websites which discussed the pros and cons of the new trooper . I loved the look and

size of it ,found a dealer and bought one .One the biggest sellers on this product was that it is automotive based

technology not atv . Since I've been in automotive repair industry for 25 years I fiqured this was great choice.

I think Joyner has a great oppurtunity to build into a great company if they can improve on their quality and

make customer service their prime objective . Since it seems now they have a big issue with differentials I

hope they would acknowlege the problem . Iam sure they don't have the funds to back $1800 worth of diffs

on each sale but at least provide replacement parts that are upgraded and provide a service bulletin on how

correct incorrect pinion depth issues. acknowlege the problen don't hide from it.

I can tell you guys, from a dealer stand point, that Joyner has been really good about taking care of their customers. I have worked for / with the other manufacturers ie.. Yamaha, Honda, Arctic Cat, Polaris. Those companies do not step up like Joyner has. Joyner is currently going through a complete restructure which will improve part, service, and the machines themselves.

You may have better luck going through a dealer rather than trying to deal w/ Joyner themselves. This is what dealers are for .... to provide support for you as the customer. Joyner has grown so fast in the last 2 years that they are struggling to keep up, and somtimes the customer isn't knowledgble [sp] enough about procedures to recieve good support.

Please be patient they will continue to support where they can. BUT not all failures are manufacturer defect alot are abuse, and neglect, which should be determined by a dealer.

Good luck A.

I do think that Joyner is going in the right direction and I think that they some of the best ideas out there for sidexsides. I also know that they are very busy but they have still helped us out when I have called my rep on a Sat. night and that means alot to us. Everything that we have had an issue with, they have helped us and gotten on it very fast.

We bought ours right from Joyner so we don't have a dealer to go to. They have two dealers listed on TeamJoyner's website in Las Vegas however we called both and neither one is still a dealer (one only had two T2's for a month and decided they didn't want any part of Joyner, their words when we called them) so we have to go to Mesquite, St George or Bull Head City for repairs.

My real problem is that they seem to have cut corners on some major parts (qaulity of parts used and the workmanship itself), ie the diff's, I know for a fact that we baby the T4 and the majority (99.9%) of its miles have been on forest roads not on black trails, because thats what our son is comfortable with.

The fact that Joyner won't return emails or phone calls to people who have bought their product doesn't speak very highly for them IMO. They were very happy to take my check and cash it though. There also appears to be some problems with even the dealers not following through if you read all the posts. Again this is JMO and everyone on this board who knows me knows that I have always stood up for Joyner but just because they are restructuring doesn't mean they have the right to leave their LOYAL customers out in the cold.

The closest dealer is three states away the dealer I bought it from is a joke and has not helped with anything at all. But what is the excuse for not returning calls or emails. I will not cut them any slack for poor customer service. Its easy for you if your a dealer but what about those of us who aren't and cant get any help? I have had it for almost a year and have only been able to drive it for 4 months it took 6 months to get a new fuel tank when that broke. They need to take care of the people that already have one or people will quit buying new ones.

I dont blame you for being upset and I agree with you. At the same time I think things will get better and even though we are in MO I would be glad to help you or anyone else any way that I can. You can PM me here, email me at [email protected], or call me at 573-478-3203. Rusty. By the way, I can get your parts ordered and get them shipped straight to you from the factory.

I'm sorry if you have less than acceptable support from your dealer. Their are a number of dealers, all brands, that are only concerned about the sale and no support after the fact. This is not really Joyners fault, like I said b-4 this takes place w/all brands. As for it "being easy" for dealers...... you are sadly mistaken. We have to deal with, and take the heat for, all of Joyners issues. With the other brands all you can do is contact customer service. No parts , no warranty issue support, no weekend calls while broke down at Moab. As dealers we are required to meet certain criteria to be and retain our dealer status. Some do a good job, others don't. How many of your dealers covered the warranty labor that Joyner doesn't pay for.......most do not....... I do. I personaly wish Joyner had no contact w/ the public directly, other than customer service, like the other brands. This would create a better dealer network, with fewer derelict [sp] dealers.

That being said...... I will gladly help any of you any way I can. We are in N.E. Nevada. Not right down the street from most of you, but will still try and help. 775-753-8223 or e-mail [email protected]

If you need a part, I should be able to order it and have it go straight to you, otherwise I would have to get it, then mail it to you.

I have a complete set of shocks with about 500 miles on them that Iam not using, if your interested. Although, I got to tell you that the rears would develop a squeek in them after a long ride (probably from all the dust). A little silicone spray and they'd quiet right down. Let me know.

      Hi new to the Joyner trooper family just purchased a 2008 trooper, however the speedometer , coolant temp and voltmeter are not working I was hoping it was a continuity or ground issue but the copper is testing good, it appears the voltmeter is bad as my fluke works off the plug-in behind the gauge, tested the water temp sensor have 5 volts arriving, and approximately 3000 ohms on sensor cold no idea what I should get. As far as the speedometer have no idea how to test again copper seems to have good continuity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Dwight

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      I have a Joyner 1100cc Sand Viper in need of repair.  Does anyone know a repair shop or mechanic that services these in southern California?

      Hello-
       
      New to the forum so luckily there is some help out there lol. Recently bought a 2008 Joyner 1600cc sand viper and loving it. Took it out and had a little accident with a tree stump lol. The stump hit directly on my passenger side tie rod end and broke the heim joint that connects the tie rod end to the wheel. Does anyone know the size of the adjustable heim joint so I can order one? I am having a hard time sourcing one quickly. I am also guessing since it is an outter tie rod end, that it is LH pitched rather than RH? thanks for any help anyone can provide. This is again for the outter tie rod end heim joint that snapped. Thanks

      Disclaimer:  My spell checker thinks it knows more of what words I want to use than I do.  Typos are not my fault.
      This is a general comment on the support I received from Joyner-USA in Phoenix, AZ.  I needed one headlight assembly for my Renegade because the mounting pin was broken.  Duct tape and bailing wire held it in place for a few years.  To my surprise, they had them IN STOCK.  I bought two and kept one of  my good old ones as a backup.   They completed their move to a new address at 2415 S 18th Pl, Phoenix AZ from their former Riverside location.  As a gift, Jake gave me two T-shirts.  He said he as most of the parts for my  2014 Joyner Renegade.  I looked at his yard and he has several engines and UTVs in stock, mostly the 1100cc engines and several Renegades.  Maybe a Trooper or two was buried in there somewhere.  Everything was crated and outdoors.  I hope he moves his inventory indoors, out of the weather.  Their website says their hours are 9:00AM - 5:00PM but their actual hours are 10:00AM - 5:00PM.  I arrived at about 9:20AM and no one was there; place locked up.  I was a little upset that with a 9:00AM opening, someone should have been there.  I was concerned that I made a 70 mile round trip for nothing.  Fortunately, one of his employees showed up and told me of their later hours.  So, everything turned out fine.  I got the parts I needed and two T-shirts.  This is based upon a one time, 1st time experience.  I hope future vists are just as good.
