Joyner Commando

Recommended Posts

The Commando often gets over looked because it's an entry model for Joyner but it's a great UTV in it's own right. Most of us would of seen the infamous Commando vs. Rhino video on youtube and wondered if that was real or not but when you compare their stats head to head they are very similar with the Commando having a better wheelbase dimensions for stability, bed and towing capacity and the Rhino with a wee bit more power. Buggy world has done a comparison on their web-site which is: http://www.buggyworld.net/joynervsyamaha.html . The video and above stats are both from 2006/07 and so could now be out of date however both these base models will put the smile on anyone driving one of these UTVs for the 1st time.

Cheers Mike.

      Hi new to the Joyner trooper family just purchased a 2008 trooper, however the speedometer , coolant temp and voltmeter are not working I was hoping it was a continuity or ground issue but the copper is testing good, it appears the voltmeter is bad as my fluke works off the plug-in behind the gauge, tested the water temp sensor have 5 volts arriving, and approximately 3000 ohms on sensor cold no idea what I should get. As far as the speedometer have no idea how to test again copper seems to have good continuity. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Dwight

      New to the forum and Joyners.  Rode plenty of other machines, even used to ride with Ostacruiser(yes I’m in some of his videos).  I have been doing some long over due repairs/modifications/maintenance to my commando.  I wired in a new voltage regulator, wired in a new ignition, moved and replaced the choke, wired in second battery(back up) on a switch),  slapped on some 30” mudlite XXL and a yutrax rear bench seat for the kids.  While doing all this I noticed the intake is rather low and the air cleaner inlet seems to be in a bad spot for sucking in dirt and dust.  
      Has anyone ran a snorkel on these? I’m sure I can’t be the first to think of it.  I searched but didn’t find anything.

      I had been wanting to install power steering on my T4 for years so I went to the salvage yard last weekend and bought a complete column (minus airbag) out of a 2009 Nissan Versa for $125 with the ECU.
      It was a fairly simple install. The long shaft that fits to the Joyner steering rack actually fit perfectly into the Nissan column. Had to weld up a U joint on the Nissan column to make it a straight shaft and fab up one simple bracket. Connect power and ground plus a switched 12v and now I can steer with one hand!

      Hey guys, just to give you a bit of back story here first.  I used to ride big mud machines and SxS in the swamp.  Went through a divorce and lost almost everything.  What I got to keep was a snowmobile that I had for years and never rode anymore and wasn’t worth much to me so I decided to try trading it for more or less any UTV/SxS I could.  Well that landed me here, I just traded it for a 2008 Kandi KD650 which is a direct clone of the Joyner Commando 650.  The machine is in rough shape but runs and drives.  I have a few things to repair on it. (Seized choke cable, seized Ignition, and needs a voltage regulator). Going to to princess auto today to pick up a choke cable, and ignition, I have a voltage regulator from an old project that I will wire in.  
      The only thing I am wondering about is the rear end.  The guy I traded it for told me only one rear tire will spin when in 2 wd.  Is that the way all of these are is do  I need to rip it apart.  Also is there any aftermarket support for rear axles or axles that will fit that can be cut down and sleeved and rewelded.  Buddy there did some rednecking with a Polaris axle but not sure how strong it is.
