That website expired. We have a place in Havasu, and a street-legal Rhino to take out there. Do you have any more info on the location?

We just rode this awesome 70 mile, 6 hour trail through the heart of the KOFA National Wildlife Refuge.

All the info including maps, videos and pictures are here

The trail is an extension of the road of of Hwy 95 South of Quartzsite, AZ. to the Refuge. The off-roading is very light, could do in a car, as this is one of the most protected areas near Quartzsite. There are signs for the turnoff to the Refuge on Hwy 95.

Hi Rick,

I got my wife a 650 Sand Spider buggy. For NYE we'll be at Calico, seeing if my Jeep will hold together for the runs. I don't know if she plans to bring it to Havasu, although the Desert Bar run would be fun. I'd like to get it the street legal registration in Havasu, but haven't gotten all the required paperwork done. The notarization is a killer.

You can park in my front yard if you can park in my front yard LOL. I live on the side of a wash, it's kinda steep. We've had friends stay overnight in RV's at the bottom of the hill before, but there's not much room for a trailer.

Quig, I grew up 65 miles on the other side of Spokane from you. I remember snowmobiling in T-shirt and shorts (and helmet, my parents insisted), but I have no desire to return for a long term stay. Last time I visited Washington, it was only 85 in the middle of the summer - i needed a jacket......

Congrats on the MH,what did you get? you have to give it a trial run and meet up with us in Havasu over the weekend of the 7th.Camping is free and usually gas is about 25-30 cents a gallon cheaper there,at least from what we pay for it in my area of California.

Would really like to join you guys, but would really be big rush, maybe in the spring. next fall & winter for sure, "hint" if I had place to park? "hint" This motorhome & trooper thing are both completely new to me. Need little time to see what, when, where, how, how much? How to use, set-up, dump, fill, you know, all the stuff you guys all know already!!! lol,, Can't wait!! Really looking forward to using both, meeting all of you,and seeing & riding new country. Have to take it easy, I'm old,not too smart, & new to trooper off-road riding. Thanks for all of everyones help, & being friendly to new guy,,,Quig

      Am starting a major transformation of a ndw Mule Pro FXT to turn it into a Reliable Scouting & Hunting Vehicle.  Interested in first finding the absolute best off road forum that has great participation the more technical areas like planning accessory wiring, ground clearance options and bracket lifts.  Someplace where people who know how to do stuff, participate.  Is this a good forum for more technical stuff and where there are Mule owners who upgrade and work on their machines? My project is taking a new Mule Pro FXT and taking it through a complete project from adding lots of electrical, adding a fuse block, ground block, OEM heater, dual battery system, gun rack, sound system, nav display, inverter power outlets, 360 degree LEDs, cabin lights, W/S, phase 2 upgraded tires, full cab, rear W/S, and so on.

      I recently purchased a 2022 ODES Pathcross ATV from my local dealer. I'm looking for aftermarket support on this unit. I've side by side compared this quad for the Canam Outlander 850. They are almost completely identical just rebranded with other small changes to plastic parts. The motor itself is almost identical same bore and locations for mounting. Being that they are so close to identical i'm wondering if there is anyone out there that has tried canam aftermarket parts on it. Any input would be greatly appriciated. Ive already tried fitment of an aftermarket muffler and it fits just fine. I'm Particularly looking to find a snorkle kit that isn't a build your own kit. Thank you in advance to anyone that replies.

      Sorry for the novel...
      I'm new to the forum and new to the side-by-side world. This is my first post.  A bit of background about me.  My dad was a mechanic all his life and he taught me what I was willing to learn at the time.  In the mid 60's we had a marina on a small lake in Mid-Michigan area that also service many surrounding lakes.  I was the mechanic.  We sold Polaris, Johnson and Arctic Cat snowmobiles along with Johnon and Mercury outboards, boats and pontoon boats.  We also sold Bridgestone motorcycles very early on.  While going to college I raced on the Ski Doo Michigan Distributor's race team out of Clare MI.  That was the first year for the factory race sleds, the Blizzards!  Anything with a motor and or wheels, I'm all ears and eyes.  I retired as a design engineer for the an O.E.M. making plastic production equipment.  Also served a stint as a Chevy/Pontiac service manager back in the 70's and 80's.  Oh, I retired the end of '19.  We had moved from MI to MO for my work and after 20 years there and retiring, we moved back to Mid-Michigan.  Nuff said I believe.  
      I just purchased a 2021 Coleman UT400 that has 320 hrs. and 1420 miles.
      I have multiple questions/issues.
      1.  The wet clutch appears to be toast.  It will rev up high and just barely move.  Got one ordered, complete kit.  Shouldn't be a big job.
      2.  This UT400 has a bad smoking habit and it think it's bad for its health...   It not only smokes on startup but continues to smoke until it's shut off.  I brought it home in my 22' enclosed car trailer yesterday and by the time we shoved and drove it into the trailer, the smoke was SOOOOO BAD, that we could hardly see out the back of the trailer.  Valve seals usually stop smoking after it starts up and all the residual oil has been burnt up.  Rings on the other hand seem to smoke the entire time the motor is running.  I've read that some of the Hisun motors have had suspect oil rings.  If this thing is smoking that badly from rings, I have no idea what the bore is like until it comes apart.  For the money, I'd rather have a complete cylinder/piston replacement kit and just be done with it.  Also put in new valve seals at the same time. 
      Thoughts?  I can't think of anything other than the two items mentioned above that could cause this.  It's not like in the old days with a PCV sticking and sucking oil up from the valve cover area and feeding it back into the intake to be burned.  I think that with the above swapping of parts, that "should" take care of my smoking motor...
      Just how is the oil level checked, dip stick screwed in or just stuck in the hole without screwing it in?
      I also cannot believe that in these days of engineering marvels, that a company, or many companies, would design a motor with a wet clutch using the same lubrication system as the motor.  Trans I can see, not much wear particles from the trans.  But with all the junk flying off the clutch shoes and then recirculating into the lubrication system, hopefully the filter will strain the big chunks out prior to being pressurized and forced back into the bearings and cylinder area.  Just doesn't make good engineering sense to me.
      3.  I see no issues setting the toe-in, but these little guys do not, from what I can find, any way to adjust camber or caster in anyway.  I'm guessing some of the larger more expensive side-by-sides have the lower A arms with threaded ends at the frame to turn to adjust the camber/caster.  I may elect to take my lower control arms off and cut the ends off and weld in adjustment bungs and rod ends to replace the stock units.  Am I missing something on the available suspension adjustments or lack there of???  Right now the right front tire is really tipped in at the top compared to the left side, also has a large amount of toe-out.  The toe-out will not be an issue to correct.
      4.  How do you change the clock from 24 hour to 12 hour?
      I'm sure I'll have more questions as I get deeper into my new toy.
      Also, it came with a 60" plow and I hope to use this to keep my quite large driveway clear this winter.  I do have the luxury to do multiple plows during a storm to keep the level of snow down a bit.  Yes, I know, I should have bought a larger rig, but with the issues this has, I got it at a very good price.
      Thoughts and suggestions appreciated.
      Thanks, Dan

      about to pull the trigger on a CF Moto  ATV.. everyone seems to like theirs, good reviews .. anyone want to warn me of issues with them ?   I like  my Hondas but the prices have gone nuts and availability is a joke.. This seems like a good deal

      On a modest budget $10k or less trying to find a decent UTV.  Most say for that price go Same Club Coleman is good for $7k or Lowes Axis UTV for $9k or Bass Pro Tracker 600 ATV $9k But seems many say stick with the Massimo because its beefier which is another affordable brand.  I need in the next 2 months.  Use to have a Kawasaki Prairie 450 it was great till it went in for its first service, so dumb to bring it in instead of doing service myself, never worked again.  Now Need something soon to clear some flat land but rough terrain, logs on ground holes etc its the woods that drops off on edge so need it to haul some of our fat arsses back up if we go over the side to haul logs.  Its probably 45 degree incline.  Any thoughts??
