Been looking at sport SxS for a while. Its against Can-am or Polaris. I'm not Biased. I want a turbo model for sure. I'm gunna be racing on my small bit of land with a few jumps. Then once a month up into the mountain trails where they are shared with 4x4 enthusiasts, the odd hiker and horse rider. So not too fast up there.
I'm looking at 2 used vehicles right now. One is the Polaris RZR Turbo S (2020) with 36hrs ; Light Bar Front bar Rear bar Rock sliders Mirrors Door inserts Door Bags Front half screen. Spare drive belt. Centre storage bag. Rear storage box. Spare wheel .1 other spare rim. About 1 year warranty to go Just had service
Other is 2017 Can-am Maverick X3 XRS (172bhp) 42hrs.Fully serviced . red/ gold loaded with extras. Front intrusion bar -Front bumper -Winch -Fender flares -Lone star rock sliders -Lone star rear bumper -Can am storage box -Side mirrors x2 -Roof -Led light bar -Metal gear shifter gate
At roughly the same price (can am is 5k more) its a tuff choice for me. Both brand new looking
Any views ?
Some of us have had our Side by Sides for a long time and some of us for only a few years or months.... They say hindsight is 20/20 and in that case if you could go back and purchase a different UTV brand that would be better, would you?
after you've answered, comment below on why you may or may not choose differently

I recently acquired a 2010 Wildefire WF-300 UTV. I'm trying to determine if this is actually a hisun utv or another brand. Has anyone heard of this name or can point me in the right direction?
Chery Engine Parts Cross

Maybe this will help all the Joyner owners out, after hours and hours of research I found that the 2007 and older Chery engines are a clone of the ford's Britian CVH (escort) motor such as the 1.1, 1.3, 1.6 and 2.0. The great thing is that even though it was a clone of the Britian Ford CVH motor, they used 90% of the same parts as Ford U.S. CVH motor. The trannys are a VW model gear boxes with Ford bell housing. Least that is what mine is. Like the 650, 800 & 1100 are from a 1.1 to 1.3L VW golf. I have the 2006 1600 Joyner and my tranny is from a 97 VW Jetta. Now I'm not saying everything will bolt right up on the 650, 800 and 1100's you'd have to check that out yourself. But I know a friend that has a 800 Roketa and replaced transmission parts with a 1.3L VW golf. Another friend with a 2007 Joyner 1100 used gears and several other parts from a 1.3L Golf tranny. I have a 97 Jetta tranny that matches perfect to my 1600. I'm currently running a VW Jetta starter on my 1600. I bought several ford escort parts as replacement parts that fit perfect.
Just do some research or pull photos of the VW 1.3L tranny and you can compare what it looks like to what you have. Do the same on the engines. Google photo of the 1.1 or 1.3 and see if they don't look real close to what you have.
I've seen this info before but not on this forum. thought it might be of interest Jeff
