does anyone have any knowledge of these clutchless automatic manual shift utvs? I have a 4 seater 4x4 650 that the wiring has been butchered and there is no longer a shifter knob. I'm just curious to know if anyone has a wiring diagram or any knowledge of these units without a clutch pedal and are electric shifted and not cable gear driven
I recently got a 2006 Joyner 650cc Commando. It was not running when i got it.
I put a new fuel pump and alternator and is up and running.
My problem is when I originally got it started it seemed I didn't have 1st gear. I was able to get it moving from 2nd and was sure I got it into 3rd.
In my process of diagnosing the first gear issue and I realize I have first gear because it is where I thought 3rd gear was. But now I don't seem to have 3rd or 4th gear.
The shifter itself seems sloppy and needs a little rehab if that is possible. Replacement available?
Cables are worn so I don't know if they have too much play to properly shift. Can't seem to find any cables available to replace.
Can someone tell me which cable should be first and second and 3rd and 4th? One is black and the other is red.
Ultimately it may be a transmission problem internally.
As long as I have 1st and 2nd the machine will work for me going through the woods picking up wood.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
New to this if you can't tell.
New to the forum and Joyners. Rode plenty of other machines, even used to ride with Ostacruiser(yes I’m in some of his videos). I have been doing some long over due repairs/modifications/maintenance to my commando. I wired in a new voltage regulator, wired in a new ignition, moved and replaced the choke, wired in second battery(back up) on a switch), slapped on some 30” mudlite XXL and a yutrax rear bench seat for the kids. While doing all this I noticed the intake is rather low and the air cleaner inlet seems to be in a bad spot for sucking in dirt and dust.
Has anyone ran a snorkel on these? I’m sure I can’t be the first to think of it. I searched but didn’t find anything.
Just a pic of my unit
I just recently picked up a 2006 volunteer. It is making a grinding noise that seems to be coming from the clutch or around there. Sounds like a bering going out. Trans goes into gear good and it drives good just makes the grinding noise at higher rpms and gets loud as soon as you pull you foot of the gas. Does anyone know what could cause this or what i need to replace? thanks
Hey guys, just to give you a bit of back story here first. I used to ride big mud machines and SxS in the swamp. Went through a divorce and lost almost everything. What I got to keep was a snowmobile that I had for years and never rode anymore and wasn’t worth much to me so I decided to try trading it for more or less any UTV/SxS I could. Well that landed me here, I just traded it for a 2008 Kandi KD650 which is a direct clone of the Joyner Commando 650. The machine is in rough shape but runs and drives. I have a few things to repair on it. (Seized choke cable, seized Ignition, and needs a voltage regulator). Going to to princess auto today to pick up a choke cable, and ignition, I have a voltage regulator from an old project that I will wire in.
The only thing I am wondering about is the rear end. The guy I traded it for told me only one rear tire will spin when in 2 wd. Is that the way all of these are is do I need to rip it apart. Also is there any aftermarket support for rear axles or axles that will fit that can be cut down and sleeved and rewelded. Buddy there did some rednecking with a Polaris axle but not sure how strong it is.
