Found some interesting news online when I googled Yamaha yesterday. Not sure when this went down, but Yamaha bought a percentage of Linhai (a Chinese manufacturing company) and are providing technology for Scooters, and more importantly for this forum, ATV's.

Seeing as how not everyone can AFFORD the crazy prices that have skyrocketed over the past 15 years. Yamaha and Linhai are trying to produce a more affordable model by manufacturing out of CHINA! I found a pretty substantial savings at RidersWholesale.com over what they want you to pay at the local Yamaha Dealer.

Just spreading the word. Let me know what you think about this. You can check out the Technical Specs Here

I googled "Yamaha" and did not find one thing on Linhai, I also cannot find one press release on Yamaha producing these things. All I see is some threads from other forums. I'd like to see some more proof, maybe an official press release of some sort. Looks like your basic Chinese off brand ATV...

I'm not sure I would take a chance of getting laughed at on the trails...LOL...

I think that was Yamoto, they sued.

"Yamaha Motor Company, U.S.A., Cypress, Calif., has obtained a consent judgment in its lawsuit against Yamoto Motor Corporation, Union City, Calif. Yamoto has agreed to stop the import and sale of Yamoto products into the United States that Yamaha claimed were copycats of its products. " Judgment for Yamaha modifies Yamoto line-up.(ATV Digest) | Article from Powersports Business | HighBeam Research

Thank you , Admin!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the site, this looks familiar!

Just looking for some input. There are other sites that have these atvs as well, but this one just had video and better pics than the others. They are here as well ATVs,and CUVs that are good quality vehicles and available at bargain prices. We carry Yamaha linhai and Hensim products.I just can't afford to pay the premium price for the name. Have you heard of this brand before?

So....Are you selling these?? or wanting to buy them???

If you want an opinion,,,,Ill give ya mine....

If you want quality....Buy a Brand Name Product...Brand Name ATV's have been around longer than you have been Alive and Service is available at any Shop.....The Knock offs are like putting money in a Slot machine....Pull the handle and waste your money.....

At least that is what I have seen over the yrs....

Unless you are buying a little 50cc or 90cc that wont be abused by an adult....these I have found hold up very well and you can pretty much get your money back out of it when they outgrow it....The Larger CC's that Teens and Adults ride will Break....Ive seen Several that Friends have had just Break within Months....With no Recourse.....

You get what you pay for.....:yes:

LOL, thanks for the nice responses. My brother told me to get some opinions before I bought one. He told me that there were very knowledgeable people on discussion forums that would probably know something about that particular model. I have joined at least 4 different forums, and didn't want to type it again. The power of cut and paste.

I guess I was hoping to find someone who already had one to see if they broke down all the time, or if it was really a good value for the money.

Looks like so far no one on this forum owns one, so I am not sure if I want to be the guinea pig.

I would truly look for something used from a major company. The problem with the Chinese models, is that there is no quality control coming out of China. It is rarely the motor that gives way. Welds break, brackets fall off, bolts are missing. These are all common mishaps with the Chinese brands. There is RARELY any support from the company in case of something happening and replacement parts are scarce. How much are these going for new?

The last thing I would ever want to do is to scare someone away from buying the ride they want. I will never bash anyone for what they ride or what they can afford. I just don't want you to take that chunk of change, and get something that will break in 2 months. Then you spent your 1500 or 2000, whatever the case may be on a big paperweight because you can't get a new part. Look around at local shops for used rides. Craigslist.com in your area. There are lot's of different places to look. The fact that no one has heard of the company is what is kind of weird.

What kind of budget are you on? We can get you on a good ride that will last you a good 10 years or more.

      Grandson got a couple China made ATVs, lucky me, been a while since my motorcycle days, but I’ve mechanic and body worked all my life. Got an issue with the 110 cc one that’s got me scratching my bald head. Replaced carb, adjusted and checked all I see that can be done and it still Boggs out in forward gear , but will spin the tires in reverse and not bogg at all. What am I missing hear ? Anybody got any ideas on what to try next? Please let me know, I’m sure that the best thing to do would be to get rid of the the things and buy a real Atv, unfortunately the grandkids can’t afford it and Grandpa is supposed to be able to fix anything don’t acknowledge. Help needed!

      I bought this four-wheeler used for my son's birthday last week. It wasn't running when I got it but after a new battery and some tinkering it has been running for 5 days probably 8-10 hours of run time. 
      Today after 1 hour  My son wanted to wash it, I showed him how to be careful not getting water near the engine. We were careful but after we washed it and let it dry the motor starts but the transmission slips and won't really go forward.  Even if I pick the back of the four wheeler up the wheels only go forward a tiny bit. It's as if something is slipping inside.   But it worked fine right before the wash.
      Not sure what brand. I was told it was 90 cc's the VIN is attached.  Is it 90 or 110ccs?
      No air filter came with it. Using a some old stockings until I figure out what air filter to order.
      My son is so bummed so I want to get it back up to speed but also teach him how to work on it.

      Hello everyone, this is one of my first posts here 😃 , im having some trouble with the kids bike, no spark. What i measured so far at the CDI is:
      Shutoff wire works ok
      It has ground
      It has connection to the ignition coil.
      Pickup coil measures 325 ohm
      Source coil measures 393 ohm
      The ignition coil seems fine when i measure it. new sparkplug too. Flywheel spins and the key is in place.
      Havent found a service manual for the champ so checked the pickup coil and the source coil values in a yamaha badger manual.
      Is the cdi a common problem on these old machines? And where can i get a new cdi? Used ones i can get from ebay, but i have kids in different ages so i got like 10+ more years of use for it 😃

      The Kodiak 400 I just bought didn’t come with an air filter. I’m searching and am not finding an air filter that will work. I’ve checked Amazon, Bike Bandit, etc., but everything I am seeing is for a Big Bear 400 and reviews are saying it won’t fit a Kodiak 400. The bigger issue I am running into is that the ones I see all have what appears to be a female end for connecting with a clamp to a male inlet. The inlet in my air box is female. Now I know I ain’t no expert on ATV reproduction and procreation, but that just don’t work!
      Can somebody please hook me up with a part number or suitable aftermarket filter?  I really didn’t expect this search to be so difficult…..

      Hei hankin sattumalta
       ya maha yfm 100 U mestari -88 täältä suomesta! 
      Tuota malliahan ei ole Suomeen alunperin tuotu. Se on Ameriikan vienti malli. Saattaapi olla hyvinkin harvinainen täällä suomessa. Olisi mukava tietää määrityksen Suomessa.
      Itse aasialainen 
      Ongelmani on löytää perän kulmavaihteen kardaanipäähän tuleva hammaspyörä osa nro. 2HX4612000     vm. 91 näyttäs myynnissä, mutta tällä hetkellä on erilainen perä ja osa nro. Näyttää kyllä samalta ??
      Sitä kun ei valmisteta muuta tietääkseni. Mistä olisi mahdollista löytää kyseinen osa. Ebaysta olen katsonut ja valmistaminen on todella kallista vain täällä Suomessa.
      Laitan kuvia myöhemmin. Kiitos!
