UTV Purchase Help

Recommended Posts


I am looking for a 4 seat UTV that is inexpensive  -  that is designed for fun but also designed for some work when needed. I have narrowed it down to the following options:

1: Can Am Commander

2: Joyner Trooper

3: Joyner Renegade.

Can anyone tell me how I could sit in any of options 2-3? There are not many dealers in my area (York, PA) and I don't know anyone that owns one - I can't even find anyone trying to sell one. For me, this is a big deal because I am 6'2" and fitting in a UTV with out feeling cramped is already difficult - I have already ruled out the Polaris RZR, Polaris Ranger, Honda Talon, and Yamaha Wolverine. The Can Am Commander is my number one option at this point because I had the best driving position in it. I also felt a Yamaha YXZ was reasonably comfortable; however, they don't make a 4 seat version. Can anyone give me their perspective on how roomy the Joyners are compared to what I have already sat in?

Where do you find enclosures for the Trooper and Renegade? I have seen people who post having them; however, I can't seem to find who makes them.

I would go with Can Am, mainly because from what i've seen on internet forums, Joyner parts can sometimes be hard to come by, and it seems getting a hold of Joyner to get help when your machine breaks is sometimes hit or miss. notice i said When your machine breaks.

Can't help you on your decision for a choice of which individual machine to buy. But you should buy a trusted name brand. Buy once cry once. You'll spend more time enjoying the heck out of it. Instead of cussing it, and wondering why there's no repair information available.

   These newer machines have onboard computers, but it's hard to use the diagnostic port. Mostly because of the scarcity of readers, or information. These days having a code reader is essential. But the port on these aren't OBD2. And there's little to no customer service to guide you through this.

  I know it's no help, but I tell everyone who is buying a new S×S. Get a golf cart instead, if there's any way that it might possibly fit your needs. The price, options, accessories, are all in your favor. With an expensive S×S, nothing is easy, or cheap. But you really can't take a golf cart off roading. So there's that.

Does anybody know where to get a power steering kit for a 2018 joyner renegade r2?  Or is there another utv that has parts that will work?   Thanks

      Bike was flooded in tropical storm.  Replaced ecu and coil. Motor turns over but no spark have 12volts on one wire of coil. How much voltage should be on other small wire? Crank position sensor is about 200ohms. . Cleaned plug with sandpaper. Want a wiring diagram to check voltage at ecu. I have update. The blue wire going to coil has no voltage when turning it over. The white with black stripe has 12vdc when key is turned to on position.also, how do I clean the connectors on ecu? I dont see how I can get a  screwdriver in there  to release them. Found a schematic.i still need to clean connectors though

      Hello all,
      While "surfing" at Amazon I stumbled across this Wireless Winch Remote Control for $17.

      It comes with absolutely NO documentation, but fortunately I was able to garner what I needed from scouring the web and examining the wired pendant controller that came with the "Thing" (what SWMBO calls my Outfitter 400).
      Once installed I found it performed just as claimed and in fact better--my testing found the remotes to have  a solid 120 + ft range--though I cannot for the life of me envision a situation where I'd want to run the winch from 100 feet away?  The control module is fully potted and waterproof, the remotes are well made and as sturdy as they need to be,  HIGHLY recommended!
      If anyone is interested I can post photos and a wiring diagram...

      Where can I get a tool to release the connectors or pins  on my Bennche Hisun ? I'm sure they are on Amazon or EBay but don't know what size. My machine was flooded and I want to clean the connectors

      Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure.  It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle. 
      A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
      additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on. 
      anyone with any help I will be in your debt.

      I had to rebuild my steering box recently and need to replace the 2 square dust boots on the box. Joyner does not have them in stock and probably won't anytime soon. Does anyone know of an alternate replacement for these? Any help would be appreciated
