Just purchased 2008 Trooper 2 5/1/16

Recommended Posts

Hello. Just picked up an '08 T2, still waiting to get it into the dirt. I did some reading on shocks, but was unable to find a consensus spring rate. If any one knows please chime in. Also has anyone put their Trooper on a diet?

Welcome to the forum, this really is the most friendly, helpful, primarily Joyner forum around, would you please fill out your profile so we can all get to know you a little better, who know, you may have another Joyner owner just around the block from you.

There is a wealth of information in the pinned file http://www.utvboard.com/topic/392-parts-pieces-and-information-for-our-troopers-joyners/(such as weight on each wheel) and also the rest of pinned files

PS, I had 600 over 400 springs on the rear of my 08 and it was way too much, I had Yearben shocks and spring installed on my 2015 when I bought it and they seem to be doing great.

That surprising, it's only a 240lb main rate. I run #350 over #600 on my highly modified Joyner SV 250/cbr600. It's has more leverage on the shock, but it's almost half the weight of a trooper.

I adding the saturn vue power steering at the moment.

Are you telling me my Yearbens have a 240 # spring? Probably enough for me, I never go flying like that 3rd photo (on purpose) How about some more photo, please.

I have no idea of the yearbens spring rate. However on a dual rate setup your main rate equals (spring1 x spring 2)/ (spring1 + spring 2).

Here's some photo of our rides.

      Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure.  It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle. 
       
      A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
      additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on. 
       
      anyone with any help I will be in your debt.

      Has anyone replaced the stock shocks and springs on their 2015 Dominator 800 X2 to ride alittle smoother are just changing the springs out.I gotten alittle spoiled riding in my son's rzr 1000xp.
      My wife just made a comment why don't ride as smooth as our son's thing.lol
      I'm 62 she's 61 the little rough ride doesn't really bother me. I drive a concrete mixer for a living. 
      I really like the Odes it's pretty good power for for only 800cc
      I took off the cat and the stock muffler. Put a glasspack with 2" inlet and outlet it has a good deep tone and not really very loud. I'll find out Sunday when we hit the woods .It's definitely more peppy.

      Do not know if any of you Hisun E1 owners have  had issues with the parking brake pedal  not returning completely, thus preventing you from moving forward or reverse.   I had this issue and even sometimes when going over rough road the parking brake pedal would move down far enough to shut off power.  Local  dealer said no one had complained about that issue and they had no fix.  So decided to correct it myself. I installed a return spring on the parking brake arm and it stopped the problem!
