Well, guys, after 2 years of disasterous lack of reliability from my MSU 500, begining on first day I owned it,  [ 6 trips to shop, AT MY EXPENSE, massimo never paid one cent]  it looks like we have corrected all the factory inadequacies with reliable YAMAHA parts . This seems to have resulted in a decent  side x side  that is reliable now as well as capable  on the trails and in the mudholes. I know,  I am as shocked as anyone , but its true..  Through no help whatsoever from  the  joke  called Massimo Tech Service,  it is actually performing  well.   It has not had to be towed back to trailer in almost a year.... Just thought I  would update  you guys.. I sure hope I m not crowing too soon.

So, whose engine was it first? Did Yahama just improve on it, or did Linhai copy the Yahama engine?

nope  , Massimo and  HISUN cloned the Yamaha Rhinos , completely .....   Massimo  brought the parts from China and assembled it in DALLAS TX.         Then after a few years, switched to Linhai engines after massive problems with the  HISUN  engines..   The good thing is that many Yamaha parts interchange with the poor quality Chinese Hisun junk . If you swap enough Yamaha stuff into it, it begins to function reliably

You may buy a Massimo, but 5 years later, have a Yamaha....

As far as we know.. He bought it new 3-4 yrs ago. I have always praised HONDA for durability and quality.. But that shocked me when it fell apart in my hand ... maybe it  was a bad batch of bonding adhesive? 🤯

It surprised us , first that it failed  in only 3 years. and   Because I have 10 yr old Hondas still working perfectly. But that it just fell apart was shocking.. I would have expected that from Massimo but never Honda.. oh well, nobody s perfect I guess.. I still love my 3 Honda ATV s.. Great machines .  We put the new one on and works fine.. He got it  online .

      new member but I have a question. I have a 2017 challenger 750. When I put it into high at take-off I have to give it a lot of throttle before it will begin moving. Is this normal or is there a way to adjust this? And talk about loud.OMG it makes my ears hurt after a short ride

      Hi, I live in Phoenix & have tried to locate the Joyer USA dealership as I really want to buy a new T4.   The facility is vacant on 18th Place, the phone number goes to a voicemail box that is full.   Are these still being made?   Are they available anywhere else?  I have been looking for a nice 4-seat UTV and these seem cool, but would want to test drive before I commit as I have never seen these in person.  Not a big off road guy, just want something to drive around our lake property in Montana.  If anyone has a nice T4 for sale.....I am ready to buy!  Thanks for the help.

      2007 Mule 610,  owned for 8 yrs and valves were ticking when I got it and had them adjusted twice and this is when plugs began to foul.  I replaced battery (used battery I had on hand) a yr ago and didn't foul a plug for some time and replaced batter (new) with a bigger lawn mower type battery again a month ago and have fouled two plug since.  Had carb cleaned and valves adjusted and still fouls plugs way to often.  Friend has a mule just like mine and his does same thing. Have read this is a common problem with 610 mule.  Any help or suggestions would be welcomed.  Thanks and stay healthy.

      Alright folks, finally got my buggy off the farm, loaded into my truck bed (yes they fit beautifully in a 6 ft Ford bed,) and taken out to the woods for a trail ride. Machine did great, with me, another full size guy, my 3 year old son, and a dog, we were still able to hit around 50 on the speedo on straight smooth roads, and still was able to climb some decent grades. I had a couple of observations and questions for yall. What notch on the suspension are you using? With all the above weight it still felt to be hitting pretty hard two notches from the softest setting. I loosened it up to the lightest the front, and left the rear as is, and if seems to feel better and still not squatting much with me in it. Also, anyone else notice the tire rubber seems to be really soft? I am noticing significant wear and I am still under 200 miles on mine. Third, I made an attempt to climb a fairly steep quarry wall, no dice, even with just me on board. Clutches started to slip on me. I am debating doing some mods in that regard to help compensate a little for the lack of a low range. I posted looking for info over in the hisun forum if anyone wants to chime in. Overall I am very pleased with the unit. Nothing broke, she rode well, is spacious for its size, and seem to sip the fuel.
