Any body have input on Knock off rzr's "Chinese"

Hey, any input on the knock off rides? I have owned 4 polaris products. Walked on pins and needles on every one because I kept having trouble. The last was a 2011 Ranger Crew LE. Trouble. So save the get what you pay for stuff. Only the 2010 Rzr crew was reliable and it was still in the shop a lot. I am old and easy on my machines. So, I am getting my kids a chines 150cc. Wondering if they are decent. Also thinking about a 1000 cc workhors for around the house I can build into a deer lease horse. 1000CC 4X4 UTV products, buy 1000CC 4X4 UTV products from alibaba.com

Any thoughts? If it breaks, I fix. Put some HD axles, shocks, some bigger tires, maybe upgrade the exhaust, and make clutch kit, what ever I can mod it with and it will be a mean rig for a lot less than 15k of a RZR crew.

If you change out the motor,diffs ,trans,fuel pump,drive belt,exhaust,fuel injection, clutch,frame,wiring,shocks,axles,brakes,tires,ecu, seals,body hardware,battery,tierods,skidplates,clamps and all rubber clamps it should be a great buy............How can you go wrong ??

Re: Any body have input on Knock off rzr's "Chinese"

If you think your Polaris is junk just wait til you run a knock off. My buddy bought a knock off Chinese quad and the exhaust fell off on the way home in the box of the truck, like the pipe actually broke by the head and the whole deal fell off. That was just a start to the mANY issues. Machine was toast within hours of owning it. Complete joke.

Re: Any body have input on Knock off rzr's "Chinese"

Yeah, I guess popo needs no upgrades for almost 3 times the price. Come right out of the box with great tires, clutching, axles, etc. 6mo warranty and a fight to get crap covered. I mean, 16k. Then it still needs $1000's of upgrades. Not to mention CVT noises or Warranty fights and feeling viol;ated everytime I go to the dealer. 50k in rigs that all had issues. I like Popo as much as anyone, but prices are getting out of hand.

Well thats your own fault for buying more and more junk, no one forced you to buy a Polaris. My question is how smart does someone have to be to keep buying the same thing over and over, continuously getting burnt the whole time, and not switch brands? Give your head a shake man.

Some guy on this site bought the chinese 150cc for his kids. He seems to like it. I am not saying its not junk. Not saying its even an option. But I tell you Polaris has been kicking me in the balls left and right. Went to a customer appreciaiton ride with the dealer I bought my last one with and it was a constant sales pitch. Service agreements, etc.

How bout you research the other brands. See what kinds of issues they have. Can Am is crap. Fast but crap. Arctic Crap is a big lummux and yamaha's Rhino is missing the fun factor Rzr has. Then Honda, the big Red, seriously. Polaris is innovative. Just had bad luck with em compared to everyone else. So hold your judgement before a simple question in a thread turns into a whole bunch of bitches acting like bitches.

Never said they would be better. Texas. Just posed a question. Sold my crew after 6hrs of riding at my deer lease in Stephenville and having back pain for a week due to sitting in a bus driver position riding in rocky terrain. Was going to go back to a Rzr4 for comfort, but then got a 17500 quote for a stock machine with an extended warranty and stepped back and asked why. Can't I find an alternative that will work hard, play hard, and me not flush 5-7k over the next two years in depreciation when I decide to upgrade to the XP-4because I am a sucker.

I understand that. Chinese, yeah they produce a lot of crap. But, how much worse is the crap from the toilet just south of the border?

Re: Any body have input on Knock off rzr's "Chinese"

if it sounds to good to be true it prolly is.....this simply isnt a story of polaris making 15k on your 17k machine. The margins prolly arnt that great on the machine. To make these is expensive, engineering and design is crazy expensive.

Re: Any body have input on Knock off rzr's "Chinese"

I talked to a guy that had one of the wolverine knock offs and had no problems with it. He had it for over a year and had over 500 miles on it. We took it for a ride. It rode decent, as good as a stock narrow razor. It had tons of power, woudl walk away from our rzr. Actually had a hard time keeping the rear tires from spinning all the time on gravel. According to its speedo it would do 70 with some throttle left.

Another friend bought a cheap chinese one and it truly is a piece of crap. Rides like the suspension is welded solid. Parts fall offf of it constantly. Its only a 500 but it has no power.

I guess you have to do your research and find the rare decent one.
