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!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doesnt anyone think this Guy is pimping his Site????

I personally think this one is ok. He did it tastefully, most of the talk is about the machine.

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?

Here is the press release that I read when I posted earlier.

China Begins UTV Production - Dealernews

I googled "linhai yamaha press release" and it is on the first page.

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?

I was wanting to buy one . . . but so far everyone has made me more than a little skeptical. I really can't afford the big name brands at the moment, but I could probably wait and get a good deal on a used honda 4x4 around here this winter. Thanks again for all the input.

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.

The 300 4x4 is $4,495 to your door on the site that I will not mention again so that people will know I am not trying to sell for them. Someone else may have them cheaper. I guess I know how I ride and how most people like to ride them hard, and if I buy used then I am taking the same chance as I am buying a new one of these. Maybe I should wait and save up some more money.

For 4500 bucks you can find something at a dealership that is used. You will have the dealer backing you on your purchase, if something does break, the parts are available. Before a dealer sells a machine they go over it bumper to bumper. You will know what you are getting.

BuckBilly,

Honestly, I was actually just looking for information. Do I write like a Spam Bot? I was a little excited in my first post, cause I thought I might have found a good deal that you guys might have had some better insight on. No hard feeling about the fly on crap comment.

Not sure how it is in Indiana, but in Tennessee, The Husbands drive the 07's and the Wifes drive the 02's. LOL just poking a little fun at cha. I can't afford either one of those rides.

      Being confined to the farm with the corona virus pandemic, I have started working on long abandoned projects.  I have a 95 Yamaha Moto 4 350 and the CDI box went bad (I think).  Finally broke down and spent the money for a new one.  It had the same part number as the old one, but the old box as 2 extra wires on the pig tail and not all the wire colors with the new box match the old box, so I'm not sure how to hook it up.  Have searched the internet on and off for some time but can't seem to find anyone who can help.  Does anyone out there know enough that they would try to help me?

      got 7 atvs off CL recently for a good price.  one of which is a yamaha warrior.  anyone know where the vin is printed on this bike?  Haha good place to start as I do not know year or size yet.  The former owner says needs exhaust ans and clutch work.  he said it ran fine until the clutch cable broke and then I couldn't get the new cable adjusted right and it would grind gears.  things I see:  clutch cable locked up again, no brakes, carb leaking (green with algae around the bowl and has gelled gas stalagtights on it), aftermarket exhaust melted the airbox so I need something different and a new air box.  I would like the use the current exhaust if I can but I have a feeling its a redneck fix as it looks like there is an ace bandage holding it to the exhaust pipe (its an aftermarket slip-on exhaust), so I'm not sure about that- lets get the bike running first.  also, battery (looks brand new, what a shame) is dead, 0 volts.  Otherwise, bike looks to have not been wrecked, and plastics are ok (it sat outside under a 'tarp' for 3+ years since it was run last).  any tips and advise on where to start first would be awesome as this is my first clutched bike (manual).
      the clutch is my main concern- I've never rode a clutched bike so I dont even know what its supposed to feel like.  lol I'm spoiled on my automatic polaris

      I have a 110 ATV which started fine yesterday. Today I go to start it and it only starts with the throttle wide open and then runs at low RPM, Unit is getting spark. Would apprecate any help I could get. Unit is a Chinese ATV.
    • By patricknperkins
      Ok, so got this thing, assembled, and even added acid/assembled the battery with a solid trickle charge and the battery is fine.
      As far as I can tell, I have checked all the fuses I can find, but I have ZERO power to anything. Even the console will not light up when turned to ON.
      Is there some sort of hidden parental/child disconnect or safety switch that I'm not aware of? ANY help would be appreciated.

      Hello everyone. I am new to the forum and am hoping someone out there can help me with a no spark issue I am having with my ATV. I have the service manual and I have replaced/checked everything that I know how with the exception of the Digital Igniter Unit. Does anyone know how to test this item to verify if it is bad or not. Thanks in advance for your help. Stacey
