Cheap and quality is good

Because of shaft drive , you can easily go into mud and water.
Because of weight is easy to maneuver
Atv Parts are chuck and need to operate nut and bolt carefully without extra force.
I run near 4000 km in different field without any issue only changing engine and gear oil .
I am really satisfy with atv according Routine and initial cost and gain real good adventure.

Purchased in March 2012 for $3,000.00.

If you can't justify a new Honda...

Had mine 3 years now, mostly crawling along at walking pace over some pretty rough country.
Basically the competition for these cheap Chinese quad bikes is a cheap second hand Japanese equivalent. On that basis, I think they're pretty good value. I've had no trouble with mine.
A new machine at the same cost as a fairly well-used 'name brand' one.
Adequate power (I'm always pulling a small trailer)
Simple to service - oil changes are easy, auto clutch adjustment likewise (YouTube is your friend there)
The racks are fairly sturdy and useful, I have a 20 litre sprayer on the front
The winch - works well, very useful for rescuing yourself when bogged/stuck

Some pre-delivery issues (loose bolts etc)
Minor oil leak on rear diff.
Quite narrow wheel track - makes driving on slopes a bit hairy, not sure how it compares with similar quads of this size
Never had to have it repaired, but suspect it might be hard to find someone willing to work on it
I also suspect resale value would be low.

Date PurchasedMay 2013

Good work horse

Mine is an earlier model called the PUMA but basically the same. It averages 1000kms per year mostly in 2/3 gear and up to 6000ks now. One oil change, broken and faded plastics. Used to cart small square bales, 100 liter spray pack, and fencing gear. Generally gets a caning when rounding up cattle otherwise starts every day and works.
Update 8/5/14 still starts easy, steering rubber blocks worn making it twitchy, and clutch worn - useable just. Will retire after June.
Inexpensive and reliable


This has been a great bike for us and would highly recommend product Never let us down have had for over 3 years and shows no sign of stopping would recommend have owned a few other Quad on farm over the years like Yamaha and Suzuki this is just as good and thousands cheaper. Jianshe make all Yamaha small motors and you can see Quality in the product.
Reliable Farmbike and pricing half owned company by Yamaha

Great Bike, Great value for the farm or fun, half the price of the big brands and to date has never let us down, as Jianshe China is 50% joint venture with Yamaha, that means this ATV is great value

Questions & Answers

Bike runs well and then just stops for no reason.l am thinking coil.Any ideas?
2 answers
Behaviour leads me to think coil when it warms and fails. Have a spare spark plug and immediately test when the bike stops, by plugging into the lead and holding the plug to the metal of the bike to see spark while cranking. Remember to insulate your hand or you may get a shock.Have already done that.Bike when it does start runs well then just died while riding.

Jianshe Wildcat JS250 ATV5. My speedo doesn't work anymore, neither does the mileometer. The gear select lights still work as does the main and dipped beam lights. The bike starts ok with the electric start. This happened a few times last year and it sort of rectified itself. This time, however, it hasn't. Any ideas out there?
