  2. Hey, Im doing some work for Linhai in Canada and Im sure I can find out the answer for you. We have 2 full time techs who know Linhais inside and out. You can email me and I can get the answers for you - are you looking for what kind of differential it is on the bighorn 21 SxS, and if a 300SE diff would work?

  5. OK unlike the higher up posts I actually own some Linhais. I am from Canada, so a bit different up here. I have some crappy Chinese quads and would agree to stay away from them (A Tao Tao and a Gio) - but I hope you see that there is high quality Chinese from factories that make machines for the big brands, then everything else. It is true that Linhai has a JV with Yamaha, and it is also true that they are a HUGE motor company that has been making machines for a LONG time. Their quads are very very solid. I just had a Honda mechanic and sales rep look at my Linhai 300SE and he was very impres
