  2. Hey Jeff, I can totally understand your situation big time. I am not sure why it took you so long to get parts from the manufacture, I am not a dealer and have not really had any trouble getting parts I need, and even some odd parts at that I have to admit. I agree the fit and finish is nice, but without the dealer support its hard to make it as a dealer. I have worked for one before some of my deployments and am familiar with the problem with warranty and customer satisfaction. No one wants to buy a vehicle and have it break down right away. I don't believe they set up dealers just to get rid of inventory, perhaps its just to help get more dealers out there for support as well. The larger the dealer network, the better its going to be for the manufacture to support the dealer network. It sounds like maybe you had a bad dealer network manager who did not support you. I also don't know what area you are in, but here in southern california, there are none of these really out there for sale used. I have looked! If they had a lot of dealers selling them to auction houses, then the market place would be showing them available, but I just dont see that. I cannot comment on the generator side of life, as I know more about the UTV side of things. But I have been a mechanic at a large name brand dealer, (name not important) and we had our share of faulty equipment from them as well. We have had issues with what I called 'made on friday' where it looks like they just put it together to get out of there, and they just hoped the dealer would take care of it. All I tell my customers as a service center and performance shop, is that we like to really go through them before they go out for the first time. I like to look over all the nuts and bolts, run them for a bit and look for problems before they use them. This way I can make sure their weekend will be the best possible. I am sure you have great mechanics, and have probably been in the industry for a long time, and once in a while these things do happen. Remember the Polaris fire recall? it was hard for the dealers here to deal with that when it came out. I am also sorry to hear that you had such a bad experience with the dealer network, that sounds like it shouldnt have happened that way, or perhaps they should have been there more for you. But again, I am only going by your few words and I am sure I don't have all the information available. I hope you have recovered and are doing well now. I wish you all the best and success. If you could, perhaps you might tell me some of the issues you had with the units breaking down within the first 5 miles as you said. I would love to be able to touch up on these areas with my customers, and perhaps prevent any problems happening on my end as well. In this business we all need to support and help one another I have found. so, if you have any specific areas that were causing you problems, please let me know about them. Thank you

  4. Yesterday
  5. Stay as far away from Hisun as you can, fit and finish nice but I bought a truck load and every single machine failed in the first 5 miles and took months to get parts. 5 out of 5 generators failed as well and they would not offer any warranty support! They set up dealers just to get rid of inventory. Units that cannot be retailed to dealers goes to the auction house and drives the value down, Nada wont ever put a resale value for Hisun on their website. They do not support dealers, I finally got my last one to the auction house and the throttle cable broke on it way to the selling line! Its like throwing money away doing business with these folks... Run away and hide from Hisun as fast as you can! or just send me the cash!

  8. Sorry Charlie....the muffler topic is under " general discussion" john ps:. Let me know if you can view / hear the two attached videos
  9. Has anyone tried to open the two videos posted? I've tried to open both....but I just get a blank screen thanks John
  10. Hi Hawgman a question ..if you don't mind where did you buy a NOS sector 250?.... And what did it cost, if you don't mind telling thanks John
  11. Hi Charlie.....the info about the Walker muffler is in the "Hisun discussion" area. ...and yes it us much quieter i have attached two videos showing / hearing the dufference. I'm ver happy with the change . regarding the Vector name....I hope I didn't get an NOS unit... The certificate states it is a 12-12-2017...but I don't know if that is when they pulled it from their inventory...?? John
  12. I wonder what the deal is on the "Vector" name?? I got that info right off of the Hisun website, but maybe they changed the name of Sector to Vector; just the opposite of what I thought I read? Anyway, I apologize for the mis-information John. Which post has the info about the Walker Quiet-Flow?? Is it more quiet in the cab and where did you get it? Charlie
  13. Thanks

  16. Who is the best can am dealer in the south? Cheapest price
  17. Tough question, I find that ATV.COM has very good ATV/UTV reviews. You might look there too. p.s. i'd go with Polaris Welcome to the board!
  18. Coming from a long time Honda foreman guy. I'm ready to step out into side x side world.. my eyes are on the defender and ranger!! General use- hunting and riding family on trails.. NO mud bogging.. What has the best engine life and least problems? I get it maintenance and anything will last but I've heard horror story of polaris.. any input would be appreciated!!!
  19. Looking for a couple of Trooper relays JD141B relays please email me at [email protected]
  20. ..... Also, ..just replaced the stock muffler with a new Walker " quiet-flow".....now it is very quiet i added pictures and sound videos on another post here
  21. We just received the certificate from Hisun....it states it is a 2017
  22. I don't know what to say about the Vector possibly being new/old stock?? I would certainly find out from Rural King what the deal is. I think you should pay less if it is NOS... Charlie
  23. Here are two short videos....first is with stock exhaust....the second us with new exhaust. i had my wife record from the same place both times to get an accurate noise level...I'm was shocked/ impressed let me know what you think. well I tried to load videos.....both times failed! ill reply to your email Video 1.MOV Video 2.MOV john
  24. silverbullet It looks real good.Is it vary quit. rich
  25. Hey all....all done. The new exhausts 100% better....much quieter!! Attached are some before and after pictures. I used a new Walker, Quier-Flow muffler....catalog says its for a 1983 Toyota. It is 6" round..body is 10" long, it has 1-1/2" inlet/ outlet/ offset pipes....I made/ fabricated/ welded the hanger on the muffler. ....and of course bent a pipe to adapt from the existing exhaust.
  26. silverbullet That looks great do you bend pipes an fabrication the manifold.Good job.The 2 pipes i think is to keep the heat down inside? Thanks Rich
  27. Hello all... i removed the exhaust pipe from my Hisun Sector 250. I Installed a 6" round, Walker ( Quiet Flow ) muffler. The OAL was 14". The body is 10" long, with 1-1/2" inlet and outlet pipe diameter. This modification made a very big difference.....much quieter!!! ( I had to make a special tool to remove the 4 springs that hold the 2 pipes together) i do have one question.....why does Hisun use a double wall exhaust pipe. The inner pipe is 1-1/8".... The outer pipe is 1-1/2".... Is this to protect the inner pipe?. reduce heat?..etc???.... And how did they bend both pipes at the same time.....one inside the other??? I'll include pictures with new pipe and muffler tomorrow. John

  29. Thanks Rich.... I have a couple of brand new Harley mufflers I took off an Electraglide. Start there or go straight for the Car muffler? John
