Important Information about 2004 - 2007 Rhinos

While the Rhino has been a reliable and versatile vehicle, some operators have engaged in aggressive driving (such as sliding, skidding, fishtailing, or doing donuts) or made abrupt maneuvers (such as turning the steering wheel too far or too fast) that have resulted in side rollovers – even on flat, open areas. Unfortunately, some occupants have been seriously injured during such rollovers when they put their arms or legs outside the vehicle, resulting in crushing or other injuries.

Special Offer to Rhino Owners
Yamaha has developed new doors and additional passenger handholds for the Rhino. These new features, as shown in the pictures below, are designed to help keep occupants from sticking arms or legs out of the vehicle in response to a side rollover. They may also enhance passenger stability and comfort. Yamaha recommends that Rhino owners have these doors and handholds installed on their Rhino vehicles.

All Rhino Owners Can Have These New Features Installed Free of Charge.
To take advantage of this special offer, please make an appointment with your Yamaha dealer. It does not matter if your Rhino was purchased new or used – all Rhinos are eligible.

If you are outside of the United States, please visit Yamaha Global Links to get information from the Yamaha distributor for your country.

You may be aware that a number of aftermarket companies are now offering doors, panels, bars, netting, or similar products for installation on Rhinos. Yamaha cannot investigate or endorse aftermarket companies’ products with respect to quality, fit, or safety. We only recommend genuine Yamaha parts and accessories for your Rhino.
