    Chinese ATV's - Any Good?

    So I got a little sticker shock while looking at new ATV's the other day and got curious about Chinese ATV's as a result.

    I'm wondering if anyone has bought one a chinese made ATV and can weigh in on if they're any good or not?
    Reliability?
    Parts & Support?
    Dealerships in the Calgary area?
    etc.

    Thanks!

    you get what you pay for. seems to be a new brand name every week, me, i'd stay away, it's your money and you may have fun selling the unit as the shine wears off. definitely check wear you will get parts in the future.

    I was looking for Brands and Models to avoid or look into based on others' first hand experience with them, not generalizations about boat anchors (unless that's what you've actually done with yours, which would be hilarious)
    And are there any dealers in the Calgary area at all? I don't plan on mail ordering it if I decide to go with one

    My buddy bought a Jianshee, well he has been through three of them. The 1st one dropped the frontend out 50 yards from the truck, the second did not run when the shop he bought it from picked up the 1st one! lol the POS did not even start! the third has had huge carb problems. They finally got it running but it sure likes the gas! It uses more fuel than the Hemi the guy next door has!

    Basically if you buy one find a guy with a Honda and a tow rope to pull you home!

    If the price of new machines scares you like it did me, there are alot of really good used ones out there! My advice is take your time and find a good one. Look at solid brand names ie Honda Yamaha etc. You can pick up a really good used quad for $5000 or under!

    There is also a buy and sell section on this Forum!

    Hope this helps

    P.S. if you want to talk to the guy that had the issues I can get you in touch with him! lol he blaims me though! apparently he came with me to pick up the street bike and fell in love!!! lol oh well!

    we ride with freinds who ride different chinese machinesand from what i have noticed through helping them fix them is that the biggest problem with these machines is the quality of steel that is used. for the most part i think the design is there.we have seen carbs not slidedue to being worn un even and getting wedged. rear end bolts strip on the trail. pretty much remove and replace all bolts before getting started. I to would definately recomend a good used machine if you do not want to dish out the cash

    i bought one for my son 2 years ago and haven't had any problems with it, but he doesn't drive into the muskeg like i would w/ my machines, i think if your going to use for just getting around it probably would be fine, but if your gonna ride it hard, i'd spend the money and probably save yourself some grief !
