New to board and UTV/ATV

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone and thank you for letting me join your forum.  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!!

 

Thank you

Chris

Welcome to the forum Chris! 

Can't really help you on bargains. My guess would be that it's unlikely that you can get a quality brand, in the condition that it needs to be, for that kind of money. You get what you pay for. And you want something that's mostly trouble free when you're on the trail. But I'd look for probably a used Yamaha Rhino. They sold lots of those, and they've got a huge aftermarket for parts, and they're good little machines for recreation, and light duty. I really haven't any idea of price, but you might get close.  If you buy used you'll need to consider parts availability as a priority.

What I can tell you, is that you'll definitely want independent rear suspension for hills, and trails. Small, and light is better for recreational use since they're better for mud, and hills. Beware of those Chinese models unless you're a mechanic. I'm sure they're great when they're running. But service manuals are mostly unavailable. Parts only marginally better. 

Good luck! Don't forget to tell us what you decide on. And remember that we like pictures.

Thank you Kenfain for the info on the Rhino. Yeah Rhino was something i was looking at, Been looking for some polaris ranger and polaris rzr 570,600. Also seen some arctic cats that look good. Thanks again for the information.

I reckon i don't need that fast sport stuff. Just something that goes good over rocks maybe creeks and hills. So the rhino 600 is prob about the style i need. I see some for around $5,500 to $6,500.

Might think about an inexpensive winch. But  cheap doesn't mean small. A vehicle triples it's weight in the mud. An 1100 lb. vehicle will need at least a 3000 lb. winch if it's buried in deep. But keep in mind that it'll rarely be used, so an expensive Warn winch could be overkill. A couple of snatch blocks and lots of cable/rope/pull straps etc. and you're good to go. Remember to take pictures if you get it buried also, we like pictures!

    • hisun 800 intake backfire/no start

      I am working on a friends hisun 800. he said whenever you transport it on a trailer it takes forever to start and he has to floor it to get it to start. he also said it wouldn't go over 30mph like it was being held back. I get it to my house try to start it and all im getting is backfire through intake. I checked spark it was good. I know its a no no but I sprayed a small shot of starting fluid in airbox to see if it would start and it backfired and lit the fluid on fire. currently I am wondering if the valves may be out of adjustment anybody have any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

    • Doesn't want to start

      My 2013 500 will only start if I floor the gas pedal and then once it starts I have to pump the gas until it warms up a little it sounds horrible until it warms up.(around 20 seconds)and then it will stay running. The exhaust smells like raw gas for a little while. The throttle body has been changed. Someone suggested the mass air flow sensor could be the problem ( is that the MAP). It has been to 2 different shops with it not being fixed. I haven't been able to ride it since last fall.

      Does anyone have any suggestions?
