How hard do you push it in your Trooper?

Recommended Posts

I was just wondering how hard everyone pushes there Trooper? I tend to run WOT all the time. Not at first of course had to break it in so to speak.

But now it gets driven like its a rally car or like they say drive it like you stole it (and are being chased). I was just wondering if anyone else drives it like that or if I will be the one to find the limets as to how much this thing will or wont take. Whats your avarage speed and whats your and how far

between stops? I tend to go for about 20 to 30 miles running 45-60 mph and stop to let the Trooper catch its breath. Thanks for shearing.

I run between 5 (mountain goat mode) and I think I've come close to 50 on pavement and gravel, but then I'm almost 60 (years, not mph). It just scares me to take the engine to 6000 rpm. Normal cruise speed is about 25 - 35.

On the fireroads we usually go 40-45 mph for an hour unless we see something we want to look at. On the trails we will both push it to see what she can do and sometimes take it easy, it all depends on the day and wether Lance is with us, when Lance is with us we take it easy because he has a hard time with to much bumping.

Guess who!

I/We would be on the faster side. It is not uncommon to be doing 50+ if the terrain will allow. BUT I don't abuse with jumps or hammering the suspension. One reason I have not went on one of the organized UTV Rallys is because they go too slow. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos and decided the rallys were not a good fit. My better half has rode with me at 150 mph a couple of times and loves it.

Kinarfi, I am 59 1/2. Can't get much closer to 60 than that. But I have been riding & racing since I was 15.

Good to see you all!

I tend to want to get to places with out doing alot of goffing around, dont mind stopping for something to drink, just dont like to sit still for long. I have been against the rev limiter many times in the lower gears while climbing hills, dont think i have been against it in high gear though. Don"t trust the shocks so i have not put them to the test in rough stuff.

Not only do I come from a different country than you guys & gals but my miss-spent youth through to adult hood was more cars, cars & faster cars. I lived for cars and from an early age, 19 years old a had my 1st business which involved driving around and servicing the North Island of NZ every six weeks and the South Island once or twice a year driving fast cars. More often than not I'd end up racing a sales rep I knew from one city to the next. Over here back then, you could get your full drivers licence at 15 and I spent the first 10 years as a boy racer. I'm mellow now but when I first drove the Trooper that old feeling came rushing back & on the odd occasion I have taken myself & the Trooper to the limit - well to my limit anyway. I think what gets my blood rushing is that sound when you 1st start it up.

Cheers Mike

I started riding a Honda mini trail50 at 3 1/2. Then it was a RUPP HUSTLER75 Honda 75 YZ80 YZ465. After that I got my licence started drivig cars. only real racing was a Jetski race and cops never lost. Now here I am 40 and find the old itch is back cant go fast enough or jump high enough. The first day I had the BMS 1100 I had it 6' of the groung he$$ it wasent 20 minuts. I have been driving a ditch from our house to our lake cabin 15 miles away. I now have a good trail and each time i go it gets faster and faster. This last weekend I was going 65 hiting aproches at 40-45 clearing the road and landing in the ditch on the other side. Ijust cant get enough WOT!!!!

      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.

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      I just bought a 2008 Trooper T2 not knowing much about them. On this one the owner said the horn doesn't work, the winch never did work and during inspection the rear brake lights didn't work. He said he replaced the rear light pods recently and the brake lights worked before. He said the fuse module is corroded so he bypassed it and rigged up his own switches for the fuel pump and radiator fan. I see in the wiring diagram the horn and rear brake lights are on the same circuit. Now I am worried the problem is in the wiring harness.
      I have the wiring diagram from the online manual but I can't make any sense of it. I see lots of posts about wiring issues and I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the issues I see with these machines and am regretting buying it.
      For now my main concern is to get the brake lights working so I can drive it to some nearby trails. I would appreciate any advice on how to go about diagnosing the problem or workarounds. Also if there is a better wiring diagram out there that might help. I would consider hiring someone local to diagnose it so any recommendations are welcome.
      TIA.

      Mule Pro MX question:  Is there a trick to removing the center floor panel or "tunnel" other than removing the 8 plastic rivets?  I removed the rivets but the panel won't pop up easily, and I don't want to force it with a crow bar so as not to break some tabs or other hidden parts.  Accessory mount instruction attached.  Thanks for your help.  rider

      HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.
