I just purchased a Joyner Trooper T2. Does anyone know if it can be registered to use on the roads in Arizona? It has the street legal stuff like mirrors and turn signals. It also has catalyst and air sensor. I tried to get it insured and insurance told me "it's a dune buggy". We don't insure dune buggies! The title, which I can't get changed until the 28th of July (appointment issues) shows Joyne ATV. I really enjoy the Trooper and it fills the bill for what my wife and I were looking for.

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.

Hey I finally found a joyner I could afford lol I just bought a 2008 joyner sand viper 800cc I like it but it needs work that's not the issue me being a mechanic issue is I can't seem to find the parts I need like everything else I've worked on I'm not even sure what would work so I need advice from some one who has been there for now the things I need the most are rear shocks , I need the upper and lower ball joints or Johnny joints whatever they are called and I'm sure this had a fuel pressure regulator before now it just has some random inline pump no filter runs good for 15 mins or so then runs pretty crappy but if I let it sit a bit same thing I know it's going out but I need to know what I can do to sub for the factory pump and what psi requirement it has that's it for now any help would be appreciated
I have a joyner trooper think 2007 model 1100cc and it will turn over but not getting any fire. Put new coil on it new crank sensor and when I check the plug going to my coil pack with test light it shows that it don't Have power and seems to be saying there's no ground either. Mine has 3 wires black,white,and orange
1-Got some clicking type noise as if metal to metal and sounds like it is coming from both front and rear A arms. They don't have anything their to grease except maybe take the bolt out and slide back in it?
2-Also manual doesn't give a brand name for the oil filter or a cross reference to buy one at auto parts store.
3-Air filter---where is it? manual I goggled has it in 2 different locations but NO air filter to be found. Maybe it doesn't have one.
4-Love the buggy so far, got LED lights, stereo system, seat covers.......yep and got stuck mugging first time out but had a blast.
