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.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • Trooper 1100 Turbo Kit?

      Hey guys, so i have built my own turbo kit in house and it works awesome! seeing these turbo kits for sale for 3 and 4k seemed a little steep for me.. i built my entire kit intercooled and all for less then half of that price so i am considering selling these kits.. if i could produce a complete bolt on kit that could be installed with simple hand tools in your garage strait for $1800 and intercooled for $2500 would any of you be inerested? i would like to post pics but not sure how to? i have also snorkled my trooper and not just the air filter but diff vents, the two chrome catch cans (crankcase vent and radiator vent) along with raising the ECM and fuse boxes to head level.. this as well could be sold as a kitfor very little cost. i can also do the work in-house if needed (install all of this for you) for only a couple of hundred... is this stuff you guys would be interested in? Turbo kits will be complete al the way down to an Autometer Vac/Boost guage, fuel controller etc.... i have seen a HUGE increse in power! if you have more questions you can call me at 713-824-8891 i'm in the Houston Texas area. Also Lenny would you mind calling me so i could pic your brain for a min? some questions about this site (how to post pics, stetting up my profile etc.) as well as a few other things. Thanks i love this forum and really look foward to helping in the future! and really like seeing extreme joyners on the trail!

    • Trooper computer programmer

      There is a company I ran across at the CES trade show this year. They make a programmer that should be able to program the Troopers computer. About $300. The Trooper s computer is a standard Bosch car computer. The only differance is that it is programed for the Trooper. The programmer will program most any car or truck so it should work. The company could probably help is finding which program the computer uses and assist finding out which computer pins to hook to. This programmer will program all aspects of the tuning including things like Pulse width tables, VE tables, Timing tables, prime pulse width, crank pulse width, after start pulse width, warmup pulse width, enrichment pulse widths, acceleration pulse widths. rev limit and more.

    • 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.

    • Temperature switch location

      I have a 2011 Kawasaki mule model 4010 with gasoline engine.  The cooling fan is not working. I took the front cover off and unplugged the fan and it works fine on a 12 volt battery. The fuse is good also. I am having trouble finding the temp switch.  Most sources say it is on the radiator but there is not one on this model.  Is in on the engine?
