    front axle for kubota rtv 900 2000 model

    I know it's very late to reply but I still want to share my experience here,maybe it will be helpful to others. What I have is 2012 kubota rtv 900 and one of front cv joint axle (Driver side)was worn out. So I went to the kubota dealer, they told me the front cv joint axles of 2009-2014 RTV 900 4x4 are the same and wanted to charge me $200 for a new one. I think it's very expensive so google cv axle replacement cost online when I got home. What I found it's between $50-$70 for a new kubota rtv 900 cv axle replacement, for example,Hex Auto Parts has kubota rtv front axle for sale ,only $60 free shipping. Much cheaper and save me a couple hundred dollars. Finally I got my axle for my 2012 kubota rtv 900 and install by myself in two hours. Now I am waiting for spring and really want to ride my rtv 900 when the weather warms up.

    did you figure it out? just interested. I thought it was the seat belt connector at first. they do that to prevent the unit from going up to speed without the seatbelt connected.

    Wiring issues

    The water temp coolant sensor is located on the thermostat housing. It is a 2 wire connector that goes back to the ECU. On the fan motor side of life there is also a 2 wire connector, but in-line to that is also a coolant fan motor circuit breaker between the fan motor relay and the fan motor. There is also a fan motor fuse before the fan motor relay. So all these things will need to be inspected to ensure a proper working coolant system. As for the wires to the coolant temp sensor, there should be a 2 wire connector close by. As most electrical connectors tend to keep their natural flow. So, it should be somewhere close to the position of the coolant temp sensor. I am attaching a wiring diagram to the coolant electrical system, as well as the colors of the wires to the electrical connector. The wiring diagram is specifically for the 2008 700cc version you have. If you can't find the electrical connector, it might have been zip tied to the wiring harness somewhere nearby. Check for a 2 wire connector not being used with the same wire colors as stated. Again, check the coolant fan motor fuse first, then inspect the coolant fan motor relay, then inspect the connector to the coolant fan motor itself. I would also test the coolant temp sensor for proper OHM (see diagram). If all of these things are working properly, then the coolant system will work as designed. The fan should only come on after about 205 degrees. If the fan is on the entire time, (such as a fan bypass switch) the engine will not warm up properly, and thus run rich during the warm up cycle. You could end up fouling spark plugs over time. I hope this helps, if you have any questions after looking at this, please let me know. Matt

    @Flanman55. You might message @strike250, he knows quite a bit about HiSun.

    Yes it is similar but not the same. Thanks though. Just looking for engine compartment pictures of where the temp probe wiring plugs in and pictures of how the sensor in the rad is plugged in Thanks again.

    This is my thought on it: Never needs oil may mean that the clearances are loose and it burns oil. Since there's no oil filter, all you have to do is check the oil level and add as necessary.

    I don't know how close your Supermach 800 is to the HiSun HS800 but when I did a search for your machine, it gave me this link: https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1113756/Hisun-Hs800.html?page=172#manual Starting with that page, and continuing further, you'll find that there are two thermostats. One for the engine that controls water flow to the radiator. It is usually located near the top most radiator hose coming from the engine. There's another thermostat that controls the radiator fans. It measures water temperature in the radiator. It is attached to the radiator fins. I suspect that the former owner had problems with that temperature sensor and installed a switch to make the fans run full time. If the above link idoesn't apply to your machine, the info I gave you applies to most, if not all electric fan cooling systems. Good luck.

    I will say it's clever marketing. Attracts the people who are too poor to pay for lawn care and too lazy to perform maintenance..

    Not too sure that I'd trust B&S to have an engine that never needs an oil change. I'll have to wait a few years, and see if this technology survives long term.

    Speaking of Oil, fairly recently Briggs and Stratton released a new engine, that you never have to change the oil in. Just Check n' Add. i suppose if you let it run dry from burning oil you could add and that would be an oil change..... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fD4Pj1b2_FM

    Oil is pretty much oil. I'm also not buying that synthetic oil lasts twice as long either. It might work better, and because of that it might last a bit longer. I just buy a decent quality conventional oil, and change it often.

    I think that "myth" comes from the early days of synthetic oil, found this. Best Answer: In all lies is a grain of truth. Early in the days of synthetic, the compounds in the oil had different effects on the internal seals of an engine. Petroleum contained distillates that caused the engine seals to expand or "swell". The seals would wear to the correct tolerance for that component and everything would be fine, until the owner switched to synthetic oil . Synthetics did not contain the distillates and the seals would return or "shrink" back to their original size. This caused sometimes incredible oil leakage issues. An interesting side bar is the invent of several "stop leak additives" to battle these problems. The primary component of these was and still is today.... Petroleum Distillate If an engine had synthetic oil in it from the beginning and for the majority of its existence, the seals would not swell and wear until the owner switched to conventional oil. Once the switch was made, you could never go back due to the extended wear to the motor. Both synthetic and conventional oils are "engineered" today making them very similar in detergent and distillate levels, so switching is not so much of an issue anymore

    All I saw was cast iron and aluminum, held together by bolts. http://www.whitfieldoil.com/156.631 ⬆interesting read. I don't see why conventional won't work after a synthetic.

    I've heard that also. But I've never heard any facts to back it up. Common sense would say that lubrication is pretty straightforward. I can't believe that the metallurgy would be changed by one kind of oil over another. So wouldn't the new oil, of whichever variety, just mix with the few remaining drops of old oil? What could possibly be so complicated? You had yours completely apart; did you see anything inside that looked delicate?

    This is what i have in it now, I used run Valvoline 10W40. https://www.motul.com/us/en-US/products/break-in-oil-10w40-5a98e823-b9a8-4419-a72e-8b2cf0bf2bcd I've always heard if you run synthetic, you can't go back to conventional.....?

    I never believed in a special oil for break in. Opting for changing it often instead. After all, the only thing required of oil, is lubrication, and holding particles in suspension, till the filter can do its job. Having an oil that you can leave unchanged for long periods of time, seems like a sales gimmick. I'd suggest you go with a nice synthetic, and change it at frequent intervals.

    3 hours on the new engine! so far so good! one question, the oil change is either once a year OR every 50 hours, i wonder if i should change it sooner since it's break in oil? I don't know.

    Thanks for the response Ken. I am not worried about the costs at all, it's just a matter of getting it right. If some has pictures of their wiring for either of these two sensors that would be awesome. Thanks again

    Sorry the video isn't better. Driving one handed and trying to hold it steady is hard.
