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.

      Hello All,
       
       I am trying to find a Scanner that is works for a 2016 MSU500. I found the Tiny Scan TS301 that looks like a decent Scanner but so far have not been able to get confirmation that this works on and older model. It has been stated that it works on the 2019 and newer but not sure about older models. It appears that the ECM/ECU/EFI modules are likely interchangeable between a 2016 and the newer 2019 and on but not sure of the Scanner. I am waiting for feedback from Hisun on this issue right now.
       If this unit is not usable for my model year has anyone found and a Diagnostic Scanner for the older machines, one that works and is Affordable?
      Thanks for reading my post and any information that you may have to share,
      Robert

      I changed the rectifier regulator in my 2019 massimo Tboss 410 which was burnt out and still nothing. Battery is charged. The screen is dead no noise. Could the starter relay need to be changed as well? Please help me

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.
