HELP - my wife and i just bought a 2013 joyner trooper 1100 and we rode for 2 evenings with no problems. Went to ride last night and all of a sudden it acted like something was catching up and it didn't want to move easily. Whatever it was must've broke and now it moves with no problem but is making a rubbing/grinding noise somewhere in the backend. Could it be wheel bearing, differential, or something in cv shaft. Any info or similar experiences is appreciated.
Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me. I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models. I read the reviews and was skeptical.
We live in a golf cart community we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc. Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads. I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck had way more features.
We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on. It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills . We head straight home and things seem fine the next day. Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
Should I be worried?
PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in. I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.
I have the factory service manual available for the Buck 400. Just send me a message with your email and I'll get it to you. Although there is no charge for this, it would be great if you would visit my website where you could donate any amount to help do things like this with others who need it. Again, there is no charge for this manual, and no obligation to donate. But if you did, I would thank you for sure. Have fun on the trails. www.warriorsoffroad.com
