Im new to this need feedback if joyner is good

Recommended Posts

I just went once to do some mudding and loved it.

Looking around and the only utv for 4 i could find in my price range was a joyner.

None of the people that were there had joyners. And when i asked why all they could say is that bc its chinese and not good.

Well none of them have ever owned one so how could they tell its junk?

So can anyone tell me if its worth buying a joyner or save more and buy a different utv?

Thank you

I've said this on other posts.  There is no perfect UTV.  Even brand name UTVs have issues with broken/overheated/burnedf belts, drive shafts, CV joints, etc. especially when driven beyond their capability.  I bought a used Joyner because 1) I pave my own roads, 2) I can't see spending $20k-$30k for a "pretty" UTV that I might ride a few times a year.  The early Joyners had quality control issues, but they've seem to have improved.  UTVs with CVTs are easier to drive.  The Joyners with the clutch and 5-speed transmissions require you to take an active role in managing power to the drive axles.  The John Deere 825i uses the same Chery engine (800cc) as the early Renegades.  One model of the Kawasaki also uses a Chery engine.  If the UTV has a gasoline engine (3-cyl 800cc or 4-cyl 1100cc), it just might be a Chery engine.  Those owners probably don't know it that they are driving Chinese "junk"..  The larger displacement Chery engines are relatively common in cars sold in Asia, Africa and South America.  In 2014, the Renegader has the 1100cc engine - same as their Trooper.  The Joyner and Troopers are wide machines (60in); you may be limited to where you can ride on narrow trails.  I did a search for UTV recalls.  Most brand name UTVs & ATVs have had safety recalls.  I couldn't find any recalls for Joyner Troopers or Renegades.  Maybe they just don't issue recalls whether needed or not.  Support for these UTVs however, may be difficult to find.  Dealerships aren't as wide spread as name brand UTVs.  I haven't experienced any issues with my UTV - yet.  I use mine as a means of transportation in the backwoods, not as a race car to jump over cliffs.

I was in the same position many years ago and purchased a slightly used T4 from a friend. Had about 1000 miles on it then, over 6000 on it now.
It’s been a great machine, replaced fuel filter once, wheel bearings and a few bushings over the years, but it’s been a very dependable machine and still is.
I have tags on it so it’s street legal. I always tease the RZR guys that I can take them back to their truck when they break and axle or belt...and I usually do

      Hi,
      I'm in the market for a hunting/ ice fishing utv. I've been looking at the normal group (Ranger, pioneer, defender, general, wolverine, etc.) of used units and came across a 2014 Joyner R2. It's got a full cab, heater and a winch.  Supposedly no mechanical issues. They're asking $7K. I've never heard of the brand and have been doing some internet research. It sounds like the older units had issues but the newer units since 2014 are better. The utv is exactly what I'd like to have but I'm just looking for advice from folks who know more about these units. Thanks for the help.

      At the suggestion of one of our members, here's some info on the gas gauge sending unit.
      3 ohms is full, 13 ohms is 3/4, 23 ohms is 1/2, 63 ohm is 1/2, 110 ohms is empty.
      Electrical readings are: F=0.75v-98ma, 3/4=1.91v-82ma, 1/2=2.7v-71ma, 1/4=3.3v-62ma, 0=4.1v-52ma, E=5.0v-39ma
      0 is top of red zone, E is bottom of red zone.

    • By Tn. Renegade Rider
      Bought new in 2014 Renegade 1100.       Life got in the way and only put 80 miles on it up till now.  During that 5 year time the fuel would go bad and I would drain the tank and refill. Always used 100% gas [never ethanol].  It is garage kept and never spent a night outside.
      Now that I have time to use it, I am having issues.   It will start and run fine for about 10 minutes, and then it will start to miss and then eventually die. After letting it sit for about 30 minutes is will start back up, and start doing the same thing again.
      I have put new plugs in it and have replaced the fuel filter. 
      Any suggestions on what this problem could be?
      Thanks in advance for your help,

      Hello everybody, Im new the forum actually it's my 1st post. I just recently purchased a used 08 trooper at the local bank. It has 535 miles and its camo. That had it as a repo, everything seems to be in really good shape. There's just 1 problem it won't run. They said it needed a ECU I purchased a ECU still nothing. All the lights work, 4 wheeldrive works, horn works, and everything else up front. The engine will crank but wont start no fuel or spark, fuel pump won't even run and the fan will not come on. Crossed over the relays to turn fans on fuel pump and get spark. Still nothing, I would really appreciate any good advise on which direction to go next.
      Thanks Seth
