Hi, 

New to the forum. 

Came here looking for some experienced UTV users who can enlighten me about which brand should I pick for my very first UTV or SXS

I'm between 3 brands and 3 models: 

*Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXR   1000.

*Yamaha wolverine rmax2. 

*Can am Commander XTP. 

The use I'm willing to give it is mostly to go to the range with my wife, load steel targets and all our shooting gear, we shoot a lot, rifles, Shotguns and Handguns for practice, training and competition. (Range is about 10 miles from home) 

But also I want something that I can take to the trails and have fun on dirt, mud, rocks, puddles or creeks. 

Any objective information will be appreciated, specially which is more reliable and durable. 

Thank you and happy 4th of July.

i have a kaw mule...............use it around house for hauling, plowing snow, etc.............but my mule is a 600..............no speed demon...............has been reliable (purchased 9 yrs ago), but with limited top speed, don't think it would be my choice for 10 miles drives.....agree with KLM, be ready to drop some cash, dealer access is extremely important (to me), and nothing you can buy at lowes, tractor supply, etc................good luck

I don't understand this tread.

Topic starter has three options.

8 days later, there is only a discussion about Chinese 'junk'. There is no Chinese 'junk' on TS's list.

OK, there is Chinese junk on the marked, but not everything they make is junk.

My house (and your house too!) is full of Chinese 'junk'. Look at your A-branded stuff where it's made. 

Has anybody experience with Canadese junk? I do. a Can-AM ATV,  a Skidoo Snowmobile, a Bercomac Snowblower, and some Canadese bearings in Volkswagen. All very bad experiences.

But TS likes to have advice when he want to choose between, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Can Am.

 

My vote: not a Can Am. The B.U.D.S is your enemy if you have problems. Only a BRP dealer can help you. If there is a sensor failure, you can't find which or what sensor.

And if your (expensive) Can Am is 10 years old, they don't make parts anymore. Maybe you can find some old stock at a dealer. Than you are lucky. Otherwise you have a machine in the garage that don't run but looks as new because you took care of it 10 years.

 

So my vote is Yamaha or Kawasaki. Where I should prefer the Yamaha. Decent stuff at motorcycles, they know what they do. I have no experience with Kawasaki.

 

Good luck with you choice!

It's ok, I ended up getting a 2024 Kawasaki KRX SE.

Its hard to talk about the best without mentioning the worse.

The worse of those three TS had on the list yes,

Quote

thats called comparing.....😀

 

compare

 
 

[ kuhm-pair ]

Phonetic (Standard)IPA

verb (used with object)

, com·pared, com·par·ing.
  1. to examine (two or more objects, ideas, people, etc.) in order to note similarities and differences:

    If you compare these three pieces of cloth, you'll see they're all similar in weight.

     

    There is nothing in the definition that you should compare 3 brands/types and have to bash brands (or a whole nation) that are not asked to compare.

     

    @TS: Good to hear you could make a choice. Good luck with it and drive save!

Hey, I own a 2019 Massimo with a Linhai engine. This is my second Chinese made UTV, and both have been relatively trouble - free. I don't have any experience with Hisun products, just what I see here. Some have been happy with their Hisun, some not so much (such as Joe, with good reason). His issue is as much with Tractor Supply as it is with Hisun (or Massimo) for not honoring the warranty, and I get that. When you spend a lot of money on an item, and something goes wrong, you expect some sort of assistance from the seller and/or the manufacturer. In his case, he received no assistance from either.

I don't mean to be telling his story, but I definitely get why he's so negative about Massimo and/or Hisun.

      My 2018 Hisun sector crew engine cut off after about 15 minutes run. There is no indicator of what is wrong, no error code just die and won't restart until it cool down. I notice that the fan is not running but the temp indicator is on low temp, no overheat indicator. I checked the radiator fluid, it is cool to touch.
      Cooling fans are working, I can hear it running once awhile if I can get the engine warm up enough.  Thank you for all the help.

      Hello I have a 2022 axis 7004x4 Utv after about 6 months it would start fine but sometimes it would stall and you have to crank it again and it would run fine I am wondering what causes this does anyone else have this problem. Thanks

      I have a Hisun Strike 1000 I have been trying to get going, it has only 39 hours on it, so I can only assume it has been sitting for a long time.
       
      The issue is it is losing spark to both coils after 20-30 seconds of running, doesn't matter if it's WOT or Idle, it will shut down.  What sends signal to the coils to fire? It has a crank sensor, I was thinking a CDI box, but I have not found one of those on the machine.
      The rear end was busted on it when I got it, So I ordered a new one and installed it only to run into this problem. I can only imagine the problem has happened over it sitting so long and not being driven.
       
      I originally thought it was a fuel problem, so I checked the injectors, throttle body, o2 sensors. Discovered the heating element in one of the o2 sensors was bad, so ordered both and also replaced both injectors just to be sure, then discovered it is only losing spark.

      Exploring the Grand Canyon's Majesty at the North Rim UTV Fun Run
       
      Embarking on a journey to the Grand Canyon promises breathtaking vistas, but what we encountered during the North Rim UTV Fun Run organized by UTV Offroad Adventures was nothing short of awe-inspiring. The natural splendor we witnessed transcended our wildest expectations, leaving us in perpetual wonder. 
       
      The weather was amazing! Upon our arrival at the Kaibab Lodge, we were immediately captivated by the serene setting. Nestled within a picturesque pasture with the national forest as its backdrop, this lodge was a true oasis. From the deck, where we savored cool beverages, we gazed upon the lush green grass and towering trees that stretched into the horizon. The experience was nothing short of breathtaking, offering a refreshing escape from the sweltering heat, and a chance to inhale the pure mountain air. And let's not forget the culinary delights that awaited us—mouthwatering food that was the perfect complement to the surroundings. As the evening wore on, the lodge became a hub of camaraderie, where stories flowed as freely as laughter. The Saturday night raffle event was a highlight, filled with lively exchanges and tales of the day's exhilarating rides.
       
      Speaking of the rides, both were nothing short of spectacular, showcasing the North Rim of the Grand Canyon's awe-inspiring beauty from every angle. It's a humbling experience to ponder the creation of this national monument, and it truly transports you back in time.
       
      We were joined by over 70 UTVs and 125 adventurers, all seeking the thrill of exploration amidst nature's grandeur.
       
      Bright Angel Point: A Scenic Marvel
      One of the rides led us to Bright Angel Point, renowned as one of the most picturesque spots on the North Rim. Sitting at an elevation over 1,000 feet higher than the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, this vantage point offered a mesmerizing panorama. To the east, the stunning Bright Angel Canyon unfolded, while to the west, Transept Canyon stretched majestically. Below, within the canyon, we could hear the roaring of Roaring Springs, a pristine source of water gushing from a cliff face 3,100 feet below the rim. The trails were a testament to nature's artistry, and each stop along the way was a spectacle in itself. This loop was around 80 plus miles and shared multiple astonishing overlooks.
       
      Point Sublime Trail: A Serene Oasis
      Our second ride took us to the Point Sublime Trail, a hidden gem known for its majestic views. This trail, less traveled by many, allowed us to enjoy the tranquility of the wilderness, punctuated only by the awe-inspiring vistas. It was a place of pure serenity, where the silence enveloped us, offering a chance to embrace the peace and quiet while savoring the views. Along the way, a chance encounter with a coiled snake added a touch of excitement to the experience, reminding us of the untamed beauty of the natural world. This loop was also around 80 plus miles with some of the best overlooks the Grand Canyon has to offer.
