Since I can't afford a $7-10k Yamaha I'm considering a Hisun. It appears as though they are the exact, or close clone to the Rhino. I'm looking at a 2008 700 that the current owner is selling for $3000. He says he recently rebuilt the engine's top end. He also did the dry drive belt however he said a few weeks ago it stopped wanting to drive forward or reverse as if there's some sort of slippage. He thinks its either the wet drive belt or the clutch itself.

Is there a way to check? Ideas? Another guy on a seperate forum told me it could be the drive gear or something that sounded expensive and too scary to risk buying this thing to fix.

When I went to check out the above vehicles it was in overall OK shape, some scrapes and fading but nothing too majorly bad. The engine fired right up and idled just find. When he put it in gear to try and make it go it lurched slightly but then just wouldn't drive. He says the dry side clutch drive belt is fine because he replaced it and can see it engaging. Seems to think its the right side (when sitting) wet clutch drive belt.

Thoughts...ideas...?

You may have better luck getting an answer on rhinoclones.com.
ask for kelley motosports he's a hi-sun dealer ,i think.
Just remember that these are based on a '06 rhino with a 686 and most parts will interchange.
For parts,if you do decide to buy ( offer $2500), try bigmuddymotorsports, they are friendly and good fast shippers.
Take a jack with you next time ,so you can check the bearings and front-end

See if you can find a Rhino that doesn't drive forward or in reverse. I can fix that. Go with your gut feeling, if it sounds expensive and scary, it probably is.

So you have some strange disease or illness that prevents you from fixing any other machines not actually named RHINO that happen to have the exact same engine, chassis and drive train? Huh..might want to get a doctor to look you over for that illness..I mean a psychiatrist or pyschologist at the very least.

if you are mechanically inclined it may onely cost you aprox $250 to fix the wet clutch on that engine. all parts are on E bay and they are the same as yamaha. The build quality just may not look as good but it still works.

Nice response, if it's exactly the same as a rhino then get a manual and figure it out. They are not that complicated. I along with hundreds of others on this site could fix a rhino with those symptoms. I have never seen one, let alone tear into one, so I don't know if they are the same. Why would you think I need to see a doctor? You are the one intimidated by the expense, and that it seems "scary". It's just a machine! Grab your balls and jump in, it won't bite!

His desision to buy a clone or whatever else he wants doesn't matter to me. I was just stating that I have experience with Rhinos only. If the cost has him that worried and scared, then he probably can't afford it anyway, whether it's a rhino, or some other vehicle, and should maybe look into some other hobby.

HAHAHA!!!! I'm awake now asshole! If it's an identical clone of a Yamaha Rhino, then maybe you can explain to me what the **** a wet side drive belt is! If you can't find help on a forum, designated for clone owners, then don't come over to one that is not and talk ****! Buy one, bring it to my house, and I will fix it for you, but I can tell you it will be cheaper for you to buy a rhino that works!

If you can tell me the parts that dont fit on upgrade i would thank you 10 x. Thanks

I would take a free ATv any day. It's just u will have to fix it your self because most brand name dealers won't touch them. That is why they are cheaper. There is little support behind them and there not all bad they just need more maintenance
Just think there is a local oil company who spent 80k on 4 prowlers after the rhino's wore out just to see if another brand was better. After the prowlers hit an average of 4500 km they all blew up one at a time. Now they realize the rhino was the better choice
