Trying to pick a UTV

Funny how different areas have different opinions of UTV's...  In my area the landmaster has a far better reputation than any thing you have mentioned. Whatever machine you decide on do a thorough check on parts availiability!!  Don't go off someones sayso, do check....the biggest complaint from consumers is not being able to find repair parts and information to make the repairs.  The landmaster is assembled in the USA and parts are availiable in my area, the other models are not. There are some Hisun dealers in the general area but parts can be hard to come by even from our dealers, many items on backorder and have been for some time.  Just my two cents worth...To bad you could not come up with enough to get a Kymco UTV as they are awesome machines. They have the lowest consumer complaint per 1000 machines made of any UTV manufacturer!!

I found with my happily now sold Sportworks, now Landmaster that these uts are maybe assembled in the US but parts are sourced from Venezuela, China etc. After about 5 years parts become unavailable. Pay a bit more and do not buy any "assembled in America" utes. Polaris etc. you will always be able to source parts.

Soon as a gas strut goes which buggers your steering etc, cannot be sourced your utv is worthless. Yes other utv shocks do not have the same threads and ends that are required. Also these "assembled in America" U joints for the 4 wheel drive tend to break easily when stressed.

Go to any dealership that sells made in America utvs and ask their parts guy about availability of parts from "assembled in America" utvs.

They have had plenty of people trying to match up parts that they cannot match.

I had to remove the hardness on a strut to machine down the diameter and re thread it. Then heat it and quench to bring back its hardness. 

A lot of work because parts are not available 5 years later.

      Hey guys ! I installed a snow track set on my 550 UTV last year and it does a great job even though the engine is not that big. Broke 2 wheel studs so I temporatily replaced them with bolts but I would like to go back to the studs before reinstalling the tracks this winter. Any idea what the default studs are so I can order replacements ? Thx !
      Edit : Any reseller to recommend if I want to order them online in Canada ?

      We just bought a used 2017 American Landmaster TW450. No hour meter that I can find, so not sure exactly how much it has been used. 
      The first 2 days we had it, the starter was a little sketchy, but it started after 2-3 tries. Sometimes when turning the key, we would hear a loud metal "clink" sound. Like the starter made contact, but didn't have enough power to turn. 
      THIS MORNING... Turning the key, we hear a single click sound. That's it. Even with a new battery, the starter is still doing the same thing. Both batteries (old and new) were reading 12.8 volts on volt meter. So I'm wondering what else could be going on? Any ideas on what to look for would be greatly appreciated...
      Thank you!

      Has anyone found aftermarket side mirrors that work with angled bars on the 800sx other than the super expensive factory ones?

      I have a 2011-12 Hisun Yard Sport HS700. Engine gets hot, but radiator does not. Changed the water pump, still the same. Service manual parts #15, 16, & 17 (pages 283-284) shows a "Save Temperture" #15, which looks like a thermostat. Service manual also parts #9, 10 & 11 shows it without a thermostat. Does this unit have a thermostat?

      Earlier this week — and after much anticipation — Lexus unveiled the new 2022 LX 600 SUV. It's a luxurious American version of the new Land Cruiser and shares a V6 powertrain with the new Toyota Tundra pickup. The LX wasn't a shock; it's just about the most characteristically "Lexus" vehicle one could imagine, except perhaps the LS sedan. But Lexus also released a different vehicle you would not have expected this week.
      At the end of the LX announcement video, Lexus teased a new mobility concept called the "Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle," or ROV. It's an all-terrain vehicle — or, as we will choose to interpret it, a supremely badass golf cart — that runs on a hydrogen combustion engine. Sadly, Lexus did not include an utterly superfluous spindle grille, although the shape of the front end will certainly remind you of that shape.



      An ATV makes perfect sense as a showcase for hydrogen combustion. One of the technology's most significant drawbacks for current production use is that it can't produce as much power as gasoline combustion engines with the same size engine footprint. So a low-speed wood path cruiser could get away with far less power than a recreational on-highway vehicle.
