Recommended Posts

Looking at getting another sxs, I was thinking about a used 2013/2014 rzr but then starting checking out the 2018/2019 odes x4 1000 but doesn't seem to be much info on them as far as reliability or overall quality.  Any have any good/bad experience with the newer x4s?

I bought a 2018 Odes Comrade (Rhino copy). Had multiple problems with it. The big problem was the engine kept backfiring through the intake box. Not real loud, just a pop, loud enough to hear, and feel at times. The shop mechanic could not make it stop. He changed the injector, the fuel pump, adjusted timing, adjusted the valves and several heat ranges of spark plugs. He even changed the fuel electronic computer.  It would not stop. He said that on on other UTV's. you could access the electronic computer and adjust the fueling, but on the Odes, it was preset and not adjustable. Mike Smith, the Odes owner, sent a factory mechanic. He said the man would arrive with a fully stocked truck, test equipment and parts. Some yo-yo showed up in a old car, with a back pack of tools and a cardboard box of parts. He changed everything the shop mechanic already did, plus the key switch. It ran worse than ever. Odes finally refunded my purchase price., and hauled the Comrade back to Dallas. The Odes has the best warranty on the market, plus a lot of extras, but, it doesn't matter what they have or warranty, if they cannot fix it. 

I do not recommend Odes, to anyone.

Another thing, there is not much as far as parts and accessories available for the Odes. Just try to find a cross reference for the oil filter. HA!

      So I started out with the 2013 Odes Dominator 800. Had a full realm of issues incl.the cytrifical clutch blowing out and clipping my leg while simply driving it down to my mailbox.Traded it in fall 2018 with a cracked trans.case. Bought the 2018 ODES Zeus. Within a month the touchscreen wouldn't work. Shop 3x. Then engine oil coolant hose blew. Stayed in Playing Around MotorSports in Conroe Tx for almost a month. Approx 1mo.later the power steering motor went out. In shop for 6wks. Mind you this isn't just for pleasure. It's used for all Ranch purposes.  New motor only lasted about a month. Then it Sat for a bit. Alas the New motor came in.  It was bad straight out of the box. Brought it back home until the 3rd motor comes in. 6 months now and still waiting! Can still operate w/I power steering. So i am literally on my way home from Wolf Pen Gap in Mena ,AR. Where we go riding in the mountains on the trails. So, my handicap wife and I get to the peak of a mountain, put it in park and the engine dies.  I'm a diesel mechanic of almost 40 yrs of exp. Working on anything from a pressure washer to a big rig. Back to the saga. The bike won't start. All elec.is dead. Cooled it down for a while. Started checking for issues. Nothing worked. Called dealership mechanics. Was going through the gamut of things to try. Nothing. My wife mentioned smelling burning plastic earlier but smell had stopped. Well, started checking other issues. During this time,my wife found fresh bear  tracks. We were miles away from anything or anyone. Well, Found It! The wiring harness burned up and shorted out the bike. Thankfully I was able to rig it enough to get us off the mountain and back to cabin. All the money spent on fuel, cabin rental, groceries, time off work, arrangements made to have someone care for the farm, the list goes on,  to go out of state for the single purpose of our anuall trip. Half a day and the trip was ruined. Will be calling the bank ,dealership and a lawyer in the morning to deal with all the mess. Not playing around with people. Going straight to Tx.Lemon Law, BBB,

      Hey everyone, got a strike 1000 in on a trade awhile back, me being dumb I didn’t check the fluid when I got it. Turn out guy had swamped it pretty good. Front diff, rear diff, and trans were full of water/oil/sludge. I don’t have a service manual only an owners manual and it do not state the type of oil the the trans takes or where the filler cap is for it. I have everything else taken care of so far just not the trans.
       
      Any help is appreciated.

      Just picked up my new baby from the dealership last Saturday!. They told me I was one of the first to get one in my area. It is so awesome and completely bad to the bone with wicked power.
