This is likely ours he's talking about here....we have a 2008 Joyner Trooper T2. We took it to Rich in Nov 2017, with the understanding he would start on it right after the first of the year. Finally after many communications and giving up, we retrieved it unfinished the first of Sept - and the buggy was cannibalized. The engine had been rebuilt, but he did not do the rebuild himself, because he didn't have a mechanic. The engine was rebuilt, he told us by NAPA, however it does supposedly have his custom cam in it. BUT, it's not holding good oil pressure. Still working out what we're gonna do about that. There's supposed to be a warranty on it, but we're not hauling it back down there so the warranty can be honored. He's 5 hrs away from us, and who knows what might be taken off it if we take it back down there. AND, he has no mechanic. As we said, we retrieved it unfinished. The engine had not been installed, the clutch and pressure plate had not been installed, and Rich told us himself he's too old to do the work. There's a Joyner T4 sitting there now that was there when we dropped ours off in Nov 2017. And now there's an Oreion sitting there he says he's working on. Again, he has no mechanic.  We retrieved our Joyner the first of September, and Lloyd and our son spent 2 days finding parts, installing the engine, and putting it back together to the point they could load it on the trailer and bring it home. Rich still owes us parts that were not there (gaskets, ignition, etc) and parts that were taken off that should not have been. He claims he has no knowledge of what was taken or why. We don't question his knowledge - but he is ultimately responsible for parts that were removed that he cannot account for. The ignition was gone; the steering column was dismantled and parts missing. And that only scratches the surface....in a nutshell, if you are considering getting Silverbullet to do some work for you, I suggest you do a shop visit first and make your own decision from there.

That sucks. I have been waiting on an upgraded new rear differential ordered last June. If anyone has any info. On getting it or money back, please let me know. Good luck to all involved in that bullshit scam artist's way of doing business. I guess live and learn. Hopefully Karma will take care of it before one of us has to....

As far as I know, 

Rich is in jail with a pending investigation into quite a few things.  

None of the silverbullet phone numbers work

The place where the shop used to be now has a for sale sign and has been cleared out. 

 

Sorry I dont have better news for all the people he screwed over

FYI  Information from the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC) website on this company.  Listed with the ACC in 2007 as located in Phoenix, AZ.  Last annual report report filed in 2009.  Company name is no longer active.  If anyone wants to, they can start a new company with that same name but it comes with some baggage.  Ricard Riccardo is listed as the owner.  Johnaten (probably his brother) is also listed.  At that time, their address was listed on W 31 Ave in Phoenix.  Numbered streets in Phx are N/S, few, if any  are E/W.  They moved to Yuma sometime after 2009.  They've had 4 different addresses in Yuma since that time (one a vacant farm field).  Seems like this is more of a hobby than an income producing business.  It might be a good idea to check with the ACC to see if a business or individual you want to do business with to see if they are listed and active.  AZ law says you can't contract with a business and a business can't contract with you  to do any work that is valued over $1,000 (may not apply to automotive work but it does apply to residential work on your home or property).

Jonathan is rich's middle name.  Also it was at one point an income producing business.  Then he started his shady and lazy business practices

A public records search on the AZ Superior Court docket shows a person by the same name in Yuma is charged with some felonies involving weapons and disorderly conduct.  That may explain why he's in jail now.  I guess they couldn't find him until Jan.

      My family moved from Illinois to Leadville Colorado about 3 months ago.  Leadville has a lot of trails to ride and some fun off road stuff  that i would love to start getting into with my boys. I currently have a 04 HD FXD Superglide that i might sell or trade for a UTV. My question is are there any UTV that are good solid used side by side that i could find for about $4500 or $5000? If not I will keep saving for something. If so what brand and year should i be looking for? Thank you for your help!!

      Buying from Silver bullet like sushi at a truck stop? Over the years seeing him on this forum I assumed he was legit but now I am seeing lots of negative feedback. Selling engines you don’t have and taking money on a website for false inventory is fraud. Not sure if that is the case or not but getting sinking feeling it might be the case after making an order yesterday and getting no follow up or response immediately to my calls for clarification.  Anybody with experience?

      Troubleshooting Kubota 400.  it  is tough to start, I have to pump the gas pedal. After it starts it will idle, but bogs down and backfires when I  give it gas. I've replaced the fuel pump and it did not fix the problem. Any other suggestions that would not require replacing throttle body and ECU ?
