dude... that sucks.

I think you are right, it sounds like a bad initial engine build that will continue to plague that engine.

Check with FCR motorsports here... I know he is putting a 900 honda engine in his Rhino so maybe he still has his old one.

Do you have a pic of the timing tensioner all messed up? That is weird that, that would keep messing up.

We cant wait for Friday Rhino Nights at Sonic! The weather is perfect.

I would take that Rhino motor to KMS Performance or Racers Edge, I have heard lots of rave reviews about both places...

They seem to know what they are doing but they are stumped on what would cause the tensiner to break twice in three weeks..... he is going to dig into it today!!

Thanks i will keep him in mind!!!! DFR does alot of motor work on Quads and have done some rhino stuff but they are very good with quad race motors.

I just hope he covers it this time its getting a little expensive........

Yeah who knows i got rid of the rail because i got tired of it breaking and i am having more problems with the rhino than i had with it----but i can tell you it is more fun to drive than the rail was!!!!!!!Can take it anywhere and the rail was only good at the sand dunes.

what kind of rail did you have? I am considering getting out of the rhino, and into a rail. The rhino just isn't fast enough to scare me. It gets old driving everywhere pinned.. I am curious to know your thoughts on this.

Thanks,

Greg
