Question Mr

Hi to everyone.

Can anyone say if this is correct?
I have a little used 450 Y Rhino, 2007.

When in 2-wheel drive there does not seem to be a proper differential action in that the front wheels, I think its the front, will not drive smoothly over loose gravel or grass without struggling and tearing up the surface like cars will do easily. Should there/is there a differential on both the front and rear wheels when in 2-wheel drive?
I expect it in 4 wheel drive especially in 4 wheel drive diff-lock.

It has always been like this. It just seems wrong and if correct is a major failing of the model.
I have seen other makes drive smoothly without tearing at loose surfaces or squealing/struggling when cornering on asphalt.

Also the Rhino is very poor at letting me get the choke off. Takes an age to warm up and stall so easy while doing so. Seems like a weak mixture to me

Thanks. I do not like this feature one bit on the Rhino, a locked, non differential on the rear at all times.
Also the choke cant be pushed all the way in when the temperature is 30 degrees or less. What can be adjusted?

Can you elaborate?
What do you mean by jetting? It has original jet so all the Rhinos of that age would have the same fault- which they do not.
