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?

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.

      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.

      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.
    • By invest0rs
      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
