Joyner Trooper T2

Recommended Posts

I have been riding duel sport motorcycles (mostly 2 up) for the last 50 years. Due to old injuries bothering me on the current motorcycle (bmwr1150gs) I'm thinking of a switch to a dune buggy. I've looked at the Trooper and talked to the dealer and he says no problem using it on the roads. I live in the mtns in virginia.

How do they handle on back paved roads. My intention would be to use it 60% mtn back roads paved, 35% gravel/dirt forest service roads and 5% trails.

I put 4K to 5K miles per year on the motorcycle and would want to use the Trooper the same. Will this work? If so will it hold up to the miles?

Thanks to all for info or opinions.

Robert.

The trooper will work out very well.If you do all maintenance it should give you years of service.The steering is a little heavy. I would recommend upgrading to the electronic steering rack. Other than that it should be perfect. Most breakdowns are from lack of maintenance anyways. - silverbullet

Get rid of the stock tires, they won't last long any way and put on some General Grabber AT2 27x8.50 R14 95Q 6PR OWL on 6" wide wheels. And like I always say, snorkel it. They say it goes 65 mph but that's screaming the engine, Comfortable is 45 to 50 and on mine, I get 10 mph per 1000 RPM, and while the exhaust sounds really cool at the dealers, after an hour or so, it's loud, you'll want a muffler.

We have a T4 and love it. I would read all the posts and that will give you an idea of what problems different people have had in the past. Our resident Joyner specialist are Kinarfi and Lenny who are both very knowledgeable about the T2's and I don't think they would mind answering your questions. I do agree with Kinarfi about the tires, we had problems with the stock tires and replaced them with the General Grabbers and love them, they even came with road hazard. Enjoy your T2 when you get it.

    • Joyner Trooper Power Steering

      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!

    • 2009 Joyner trooper fueling problem

      Fuel pump runs but nothing is getting tô it. I tried putting a vacuum on the outlet hose of pump and it wouldn't pull anything. This machine sat for a year and a half unused. Is there a way to prime the lines?  What could be the cause of the fuel not getting tô the pump?

    • Wanted: Trooper Axle Parts

      I am interested in any old trooper axle parts you may have lying around. Please let me know if your want to sell them.  Backstory: Hey everyone. Last trip out to moab I climbed a wall on poison spyder Mesa while 2 rzr xp1000's and three can am x3 xrc's watched me and didn't dare try. After doing it once I pulled around to show them it wasn't a fluke. One on the can am x3 xrc drivers just looked at me and said "that's steep". On the second try I spread the bell on the left rear axle. I made the climb but now the inner cage slips inside making a loud popping noise as twisting the boot. I mainly just need the inner bell but I am interested in anything you have.
