Thank you vanet, that was my point exactly. I don' think anyone would have a difficulty keeping a yamabuggy clone running. Tons of places actually sell them still. The cheapest I have found is $3,899 shipping included, (but you know what that means). I was so bummed when I stumbled across these, after I had already purchased my Coolster Dbl.

I’m really happy with my Coolster though. It took me a good 3 or 4 weeks (and several parts)to get it running right. But now it purrs like a kitty cat, and the power comes on strong and stays that way throughout the entire RPM range. Just wish I had a little more top end. I see some kidnme CVT parts in my very near future.

I had one. In fact, I bought RodeoDucks. I've got a good vid of it out on you tube. Don't think that because it is a Yamaha JV engine that it is as good a quality as the actual Yamaha Big Bear engine. Mine hardly had any miles on it. The biggest problems with them are in fact the rear ends. Several grenaded. Mine was fine. The Hammerhead Tiburon was far superior in it's design. I went to look at a standard yamabuggy or I think they call it an XAtV recently and was less than impressed. The wierdest thing was in fact how the XATV dealt with its steering system. They actually used two rack and pinions. Kinda silly. Top one drove the bottom one. The HH version used one. It has to do with how they did the strut setup. The gas and brake pedal were wierd on the XATV as well. They were awkard at best where as the hammerhead was more conventional and felt just fine.

Engine wise, the HH leaked horribly at the front seal. Since the Big Bear engine was also available via 4x4 model, there was in fact an ouput shaft there. The rear one leaked too but not as bad.

The starter on mine was in bad shape. When I needed a new one, I ordered one for a 2004 Yamaha Big Bear and it bolted right on so yes, the parts are very interchangable for the engine.

Otherwise, of the countless buggies I have owned, the Tiburon is second in iine on the fun factor when it comes to driving them. Second only to the totally awesome Honda Pilot FL400. It is also good to mention that these things are huge in size. If you are a big guy, the HH Tiburon is for you. If you only have a pickup truck to haul your buggy around, look elsewhere. You need a 6ft wide trailer to haul them. Still a fun buggy.

Regarding other parts, like a-arms and such. This was the biggest turn off to be. Awesome buggy seems to have the market on these and the parts for a yamabuggy are one of the few china machines where the parts are expensive.

I have a 2007 Yamabuggy and I'll I can say is it has been pretty good for me so far. Yes, some problems, but nothing that hasn't been able to be fixed. I made a new ss gas tank and fixed a few welds. New throttle cable, battery, etc. But overall I'm happy. Suspension is good, power is good. I REALLY like the 5 speed tranny!!!!! Parts can be a challenge but if you look hard most stuff is still available as these buggies are still made under different names.

Pull the pads, take some measurements and snap a few pictures. Maybe someone will recognize them.

Here is a place to get the pads.

http://www.sunlpartsonline.com/advanced ... =brake+pad

The front pads are brake set #26 and the rear brake set is #09. I am waiting on mine to come in tomorrow I'll let you know if you get enough pads for 1 wheel or 2 in a set.

Also here is a great place to get cheap parts for the aka yama buggies.
