No BS info request

Hi I'm new here and am looking for some information.  Since you all seem to be experienced Joyner owners, I figured I would ask.  What is the good bad and the ugly with Joyner?  Are they still in business? Joynerusa.com still says 2017 on the home page.  Are these machines reliable?  How do they compare to the razors and such?  Reading all the threads here has been disheartening.  I have been looking at Joyners for years and really thought it was going to be a worth while purchase.   All you the threads here make me think other wise.

 

Thank you, 

Riley

I’ve had pretty good luck with my 2009 T4. I bought it with 1300 miles about 6 years ago.

I replaced the fuel filter and treated the electrical connections with some dielectric grease...Replaced the starter also at around 3500 miles. Had to reinforce the weak rear trailing arms and had to update the differential ring gear bolts, but it’s still running fine after 6000 miles. No engine or transmission problems. And it’s pretty simple to work on. Parts can be had from Casey Ye or Joynerusa.com.

Oh, I’ve replaced the wheel bearings also.

The Joyner Trooper has never left me stranded on the trail, in fact, I have rescued the razor guys with broken axles on more than one occasion!

It doesn't really matter what anyone says.  You'll find hardcore detractors and hardcore supporters of any machine.  Joyner has made good progress in their quality control.  I bought a used 2014 Renegade (the first year they put the 1100cc engine in that line).  I like it.  Same engine and transmission as the Trooper.  The transmission is a 5-speed w/reverse.  1st gear is a "Granny Gear".  John Deere Gator 825i uses the same engine as the 800cc Renegade uses.  There are several other "off brand" UTVs using the same engine (Tomcar, Roketa GK-45, some models of the European Ford Escort to name a few).  The Chery engine is widely used in South America, Africa and of course Asia.  The Trooper and Renegade uses an automotive style drive train (clutch and pressure plate), not the CVT (with belt problems if abused).  If the UTV you are considering has a 3-cyl 800cc (812cc) or 4-cyl 1100cc (1083cc) gas engine, it's most likely the Chery engine.  I'm not a fan of the CVT transmission.  I see a lot of YouTube videos where people have blown their CVT belt (always a good idea to have a spare belt with you at all times).  You'll also find videos of well-known brand name UTVs and ATVs with blown belts, broken axles and other broken parts.  You have to know the limitations of any machine you are considering buy.

      I have a Coleman Outfitter 550 purchased in January 2022 that runs and operates pretty well.  65 hours on it so far.   It is a work vehicle for my 10 hilly acres with two 1 acre woods and 5 acres of "lawn".  The rest is under a lake. 
      My parking brake does not seem to have any grip.  It worked when new but after a month or so, it is just almost useless.     I press the parking brake pedal hard until it stops. Still, it won't hold even on slight inclines.   I don't see the caliper move as I press the brake pedal down.  There seems to be plenty of pad left on it and the rotor is shiny as if it is rubbing a little when applied, but not enough to stop it from rolling. 
      Any thoughts on possible causes?

      Spent today at a Honda dealership looking at their 520 side by side, then on the way home past our Lowes noticed they had several new UTVs on site, so we U-turned and ducked in there. We were impressed that all that came for $9,999 metal whole length skid plate, nice sized bed, roof, windshield, side mirrors, winch, upgrade looking tires… all of which would have added thousands of dollars to an already expensive Honda 520. Now Honda does have a great reputation from my trusted UTV experienced buddy, so it has that going for it.

      Put a new carb on the 500 to replace the leaking OE one.  Machine idles fine and mid and top end runs great.  It tends to have a hesitation right from the start - bottom end.   Thinking it may be the air/fuel screw??  I didn't do anything with the carb out of the box and is it direct replacement for my machine.  Of interest is the manual choke doesn't seem to work very good now.... wonder is it getting too much air?
       
      Any help appreciated!
