    Travis' Mule 550

    I put the crankcase cover bolts on the torque specs are 250 in ibs. my torque wrench only goes up to 240 inch ibs., am i okay leaving it at that, or should i go to harbor freight and pick up one, i looked and they go up to 250. ????
  3. My family moved from Illinois to Leadville Colorado about 3 months ago. Leadville has a lot of trails to ride and some fun off road stuff that i would love to start getting into with my boys. I currently have a 04 HD FXD Superglide that i might sell or trade for a UTV. My question is are there any UTV that are good solid used side by side that i could find for about $4500 or $5000? If not I will keep saving for something. If so what brand and year should i be looking for? Thank you for your help!! Thank you Chris

  5. Anyone know where i can get headers bought or made for my 800cc F8b? I’ve seen some older posts where guys were making/selling them. Or does anyone have some you’d like to sell me? thx

    Carb Swap for 800cc SOHC

    I just finished rebuilding my 800cc SOHC f8b and boy did I wake this little engine up with port, polish , exhaust, cam and valves! I’ve richened up my stock carb about as far as it will go and still seems to be running on the lean side especially under hard acceleration. I’ve read some posts and going to try my hands at a weber 32/36 two questions: 1- Is this the best upgrade carb for the engine? 2- Will it fit with stock manifold? I ordered the Suzuki Samuri conversion kit with carb...

    Second Battery

    Old thread, but for new readers, you need to buy a battery isolator, which is just two diodes mounter on a heat sink.
  10. Thanks for the tips Aussie1. The choke cable appears to be working fine, although I have not measured cable movement to ensure it is within specs. The machine is ten years old, but it has only 600 kms on it. I suppose I could check valve clearances, but I haven't largely because of the low mileage, and because it goes from running fine to flaming out. When you start it back up, it runs fine at idle as well at higher RPMs. However, once you let it idle again for a few seconds, it begins to pop a bit and then stalls. If the valves required adjustment, I imagine the problem would be more consistent. I still suspect either a potential problem with the fuel delivery (I have a new pump on its way), or a faulty ignition coil. I guess I'll see if the problem is resolved once both parts are replaced.

    Also put heat cracks in back

    Massimo 500 secondary spring

    Got secondary spring on went for test ride. I'm guessing Primary wasn't all the way on the splined shaft and the nut worked itself off and ground the grooves away inside the sheave. Time to upgrade to a machined sheave from rhino
  14. Is choke working properly? Also check valve settings.

    Hello I have 650 commando rear differential.

    I have a Joyner cammando 650cc but I need a spiral bevel gear rear and pinion. I'm unable to locate any. Mine is stripped and only front wheel pull do you know where I can get one?

    Hello I have 650 commando rear differential.

    Glad to see theres some more out there when i was looking for mine it seemed like it was a hard to come by item, joyner told me the one i bought was the only one they had left.
  17. The YouTube video says the top of line configuration for this ride is about $62,000.

    Travis' Mule 550

    UPDATE: I've been so dang busy lately, i finally got a couple of hours to work on the jacka$$... i mean Mule.. Got the rod bolts torqued, pulled off the oil pump/tang installed the cam and timed it it to the crank, put the cover on, and for those who dont know or remember the ordeal with the crankshaft and cover: There is a shim between the crankcase cover and the crankgear, this helps control the end play, or side to side movement of the crank. anyway, the first time i installed the cover the crankshaft would not spin by hand (according to the manual its supposed too) so i measure all the clearances (according to the manual instructions) and came up with the correct size shim. so back to TODAY. I installed the new shim (VERY easy) slid the cover on, put the new bolts in, torqued them and the moment of truth, the crankshaft spun by hand,which is what i was looking for! So now all i need to do is install the head and set the valve clearance. and for anyone else rebuilding any engine, i do not recommend using Permatex assembly lube, it is very slick and not tacky, it runs of the parts easily, so i bought some Lucas lube, and it's slick, but tacky enough it held onto the surfaces. https://www.amazon.com/Lucas-Oil-10152-Assembly-Lube/dp/B000WJ3M6I
  19. Speed is a function of engine RPM and transmission gear ratio. Bypassing the governor (if equipped) will allow you to increase engine RPM but will probably not be good for the engine. Changing the pulley ratios will get you more speed but at the cost of acceleration (loss of torque). Any improvements you can do will probably result in limited performance increases short of installing a turbo kit. That will probably be a good option if you have the money. And if you have the money, upgrading to a larger machine would work, too.

    Need advice on 4x4 Side by Sides

    I bought a used 2014 Joyner Renegade R2 with the 1100cc engine, cable select 4wd, front and rear lockers. In 2014, they went from the 800cc engine to the 1100cc engine. It has a clutch and 5-speed transmission with reverse. 1st gear is a "granny gear" max speed is 12 mph in 1st gear. As long as you can maintain wheel traction, that 1st gear might get you up some steep grades. Max speed in 5th is about 60 mph (I've never had it over 40). It has about the same wheelbase as a Smart car. So narrow off road trails might be a challenge. Sounds like most of your riding will be in the <25mph range. The maintenance support network isn't as extensive as some other brands, but it is out there. I'm not a fan of the CVT transmission. That's why I went with my choice. Too many videos of belts coming apart (probably due to some hard riding).. The John Deere 825i (and many other SxS) has the same 800cc engine. It is a Chinese made Chery automotive engine used in many cars in South America, Asia and parts of Africa. If the SxS you're considering has a 3-cylinder 800cc or a 4-cylinder 1100cc engine, it's most likely the Chery engine. I have to admit that the CVT transmission is much simpler and easier to manage than my clutch/transmission set up. You don't have to worry about gear selection or stalling the engine because of that. Also, CVT transmission do a better job at keeping the engine within the best power RPM range. One thing about CVT is that engine braking isn't available unless the engine is above idle. That may be an issue coming down steep grades. The engine doesn't grab the belt with the drive pulley until a certain RPM above idle is reached. Is there a perfect SxS? No. But there is one that comes closer to your needs than others. For me, my choice fits my needs. I'm also 70 yrs old.
  21. There is a place in northern Ontario that has a good selection of Hisun parts called ATV Wharehouse. They also advertise on ebay.
  22. Hey folks. I recently acquired a pre-owned Hisun 500, carburated. And surprise... it has issues. When cold, it typically starts without any issues, but once it warms up it tends to sputter and stall out. When accelerating, you can also feel it hesitating occasionally, and when you stop or put her into reverse, she will often stall. The fuel is clean, I installed a new fuel filter, and the air filter is clean. Though the fuel pump appears to be working ok, it makes a strange knocking sound whenever power is put to it. I've never heard anything like it, and I'm not sure if its shot or just a cheap Chinese pump thing. I have an aftermarket pump coming, and I've ordered a new ignition coil as well on the off chance that it is faulty. I am hoping replacing these two parts will solve the issue, and if it does I will post the results here. If not, anyone have any other ideas? Also, I've noticed it is very difficult to find parts for this make... any suggestions on a good source for Hisun parts? I appreciate any comments or insights.

    I would like a quote for a spiral bevel gear rear and pinion rear differential. Thank you.

    Massimo 500 secondary spring

    Gonna be putting on an orange secondary clutch spring to try and help the underpower issue. Fun machine but is a turd when you need to spin the tires quick. Anyone else done any clutch work. Was also thinking about a new machined sheave later.

    2011 700 nordik

    I checked the fuse and it is good to the fan . The machine is the same has the power max 700 rough rider.

    Are there any fuses going to the fan .check online for wiring diagrams I have never heard of this UTV brand before.
