Based on my years of working with Chinese suppliers, the welds on the Chinese product are almost CERTAIN to have been made by a human being. Many of those on the Yamaha, if not virtually ALL, are likely to have been made by robots...

When ya'll pointed out those kinks, I was really worried. But, I think they are supposed to be there. They were welded, and painted like that. Also, I don't think the hood and stuff would line up so good if it was messed up. It handles great, but is hard to steer when the 4x4 diff lock is on. Is this normal? I am getting my rear cage in the morning, my kids love this thing!

NOTHING will steer right with the front end locked up... that means the diff lock IS working.

The way I hear it, Yamaha bought out the chinese company who had been making their machine 4 years before Yamaha. So wouldn't that make the Rhino the knock-off ? I still love my Rhino anyway lol

So far:
2007 450 Rhino
Crow 4- point harnesses & ORI harness bar
Mod quad - Mirrors
K&N Air Filter
AZCustomCreations - Soft Top
Venom 4000x Winch

Magellan Explorer GPS

I just went to the dealer and checked those bends on the front of the frame. Thaey are there on all of them...Wooh..I was a little worried. He has Diamo and Qlink, and they are the exact same units. I hope they catch on in the forum, in case any bugs arise.
