Rhino Project Log

DuneGuide.com is in the process of building a Rhino up for dune and desert rides. Our Rhino will appear in Product Reviews, Magazine articles and be part of many events & rides a throughout the United States. Stay tuned as we research and select the products that will be used.

Yamaha Rhino 4x4 660 - 2007 Camo
The starting point - our stock 2007 Yamaha Rhino 660 4x4

DuneGuide.com's 2007 Rhino 660 Auto. 4x4 is decked out in Hardwoods HD Camo. 
Now the buildup begins!

During our Yamaha Rhino Product Review last year (Sand Addiction Magazine - December 2005), we identified several areas where the Rhino fell short when it came to serious duning. During our buildup, we will be addressing these shortcomings in several steps.

Yamaha Rhino on the Rubicon


Rhino Products Buyer's Guides:


Safety:

The first step is to address a few safety concerns with a stock Rhino.  This will include seats & harnesses, roll cage and either doors (partial or whole) or some type of bar to keep legs inside the Rhino. We will also need some mirrors so we can see what is behind us in the dunes. HID lights and a lighted whip flag & mount so we can see and be seen at night. We will be adding wheel spacers to increase the track width and increase stability.

Products we need:

Long Travel Kit, Wheels & Tires:

Second project will be a long travel kit (shocks, a-arms, etc.), wheels and tires. Addressing the suspension will not only make the Rhino more fun to drive and more capable, but will also make it more safe by increasing track width, wheelbase and wheel travel.

Products we need:

Long Travel Installation - PDS

Bolt-on Performance:

Performance will be next up. The Rhino is seriously lacking in power. There are several bolt-on type improvements to be made - CDI, air filters, exhaust, jetting, clutch sheave, etc. Products may be added and reviewed in steps.

Products we need:

Rhino Performance Article

Accessories:

Last on the list will be a few accessories. Even though we don't intend for this Rhino to be a trailer queen, a little bling can be fun. Plus many of these accessories help protect your Rhino and make it more comfortable.
