    This sounds like an aftermarket lift. The factory lift is hydraulic IIRC. If it is electric, then it probably has a worm screw driven mechanism. If this is an aftermarket lift, try giving it a helping hand by pulling up on it while operating the lift switch. You might need some help with the lifting up of the bed. Sometimes the worm screw just needs some help getting to some good threads. Of course the bed should be empty when you do this. If this is the problem, you'll be able to hear it turning. And if that's the case, and this fix doesn't work, you'll have to pull the bed hinge pins, raise the lift, and replace the pins. Do this while it's raised. If this works, then you'll always want to keep the bed up about a half inch from the bed rails. That way it'll always be in the good threads. The fix gets easier after you've done it a couple of times. Hope this makes sense.

    This thing was great in the flats for the kids at Buttercup this weekend. My son rolled it, and everything held up really nice with the exception of a UV joint on the steering bar. Easy fix with a Yamaha Joint. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm wondering if someone can help me with an issue that has brought me to my wits end with my 2008 Hisun UTV 500. This thing was running fine and it sputtered then died. I pulled the spark plug and there was no spark so I replaced the ignition coil, no luck. Then replaced the stator-magneto-pick up coil, still nothing. I then replaced the cdi with still no luck. I removed the wiring harness and went through it to look for any obvious issues and found only one, a capacitor at the rectifier connection which I replace as well with no luck. The spark plug was replaced today and same shit, nothing. The plug I have connected to an alligator clip and grounded to the engine. I know it has to be something simple but my simple mind cannot seem to figure it out. Any suggestions would help.

    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!

    I have a 2003 Kawasaki Mule kaf620-e3 my dump bed doesn't work, just makes a clicking nose when I flip the switch. Any ideas out there. It is connected to battery and machine starts fine so not the battery.

    Hey guys thanks for all the information. I found my problem with lots of strong help. They was a piece of wood stuck under the bed had it jammed. Took several strong people to pull the bed up. Thanks again every one was lots of help

    One responder said that high cranking amps (CA) might possibly fry the starter. It won't. A starter will use whatever amps it is designed to draw to start the engine under normal conditions. The battery makes available that current up to its capacity. The battery doesn't force the starter to take all 800 amps. It's just that a battery with a high CA will take longer to recharge and an alternator on a UTV/ATV would have to run several hours to recharge one of those batteries that has been discharged. Although CA isn't specified in this way, you can think of the CA as an undefined limit as to how many times you can start the engine before it is discharged to the point that it won't turn over the engine. An 800 CA battery will work longer than a 80 CA battery (not necessarily 10x longer). A big engine will need a high CA battery vs a small UTV/ATV engine. Alternators on UTV/ATV are low capacity. Too many electronics and lights may take away the alternator's ability to recharge the battery in a reasonable time.

    Boring is rough cutting the cylinder to a larger size. Honing is removing the rough cuts to make the cylinder walls almost perfectly smooth. A few scratches (not gouges) are left to allow a place for oil to reside to lubricate the piston rings.

    Just like a typical car.

    Welcome to the forum! First off, did you buy the lift for the bed, or did it come with it? More than likely a clicking noise, usually means a solenoid has gone bad and is not engaging properly. But i am not very familiar with the dump bed lift, and how it is set up. I will try to find some more information quickly.

    If you are giving it away I'm sure there's lots of takers. Put it up for sale. There is always a market for the parts if nothing else.

    I've never had to deal with them, but I was going to ask if you have the manual or not, just for the drawing of how the are run. good luck to you, Jeff

    This is my guess. It sounds like what you are saying is that the transmission is staying in neutral during the 3rd and 4th gear operation. Have someone operate the gear shift through all 5 speeds. While you're under the vehicle, observe the shift lever operation when shifting from 2nd to 3rd, from 3rd to 4th and from 4th to fifth. I'm thinking that each cable has 3 positions (forward, middle, back). When in any forward gear, one or both of the cables must be away from the middle position (the middle position should be neutral). If both are in the middle position when in 3rd or 4th, then obviously to me at least, the cable that selects 3rd & 4th gear isn't moving the shift lever on the transmission. Check the adjustment and position of that cable at the shift lever and the transmission. Maybe the lever and cable are moving but the shaft on the transmission isn't. Maybe the new cable itself is defective. It's hard to troubleshoot from a distance, so I'm only offering a suggestion. Whenever I work on something and it doesn't work, my first and only suspicion is that I did something incorrectly and it wasn't necessarily caused by a failure.

    Keep trying.. gotta find neutral. The cable that moves the shifter up and down on the trans is now adjusted.. There's going to be alot more trying issues then this problem. Get someone that will help you that understands things like these.. Not being smart but I don't have one anymore and it's hard to tell you how to adjust these cables. These joyner are not like typical side by sides. . There's no good manual and are left in dark and have to be able to make things just work or fit. Good luck on your endeavor.

    All along, I have adjusted the brake repeatedly but it is a metal rod against a metal plate so it does not get a bite! Any ideas?

    Range rider ... i cut and welded bent pieces together to get the angles I needed. If I had to do it over, I would have bought a section of 1-1/2" pipe bends from Amazon .....it would have went much quicker. be sure to use a Walker " quiet flow"... They are the quietest. ..25.00 from Amaxon i have seen no difference in performance ...runs great IMG_0918.MOV

    You have a few options depending upon its age and general condition. 1. Replace the differential 2. Sell it as-is 3. Part it out. 4. Weld a patch over the hole (if the differential casing is weldable). We can't really decide for you. We can only give you options. Probably #2 or #3 because of it being 11 years old unless you can get a free or very low priced differential.

    Hey folks, Glad I found the forum, seems like some pretty knowledgeable folk in here. I recently bought a Mule with 860 hours on it from auction and I've noticed a couple small issues I'd like to get some opinions on. 1. When the Mule is heated up, been driving 15-20 minutes, when going uphill, it'll have a really hard time getting out of a "low" gear and when trying to shift upwards, it will make a sound like it's not catching and won't pick up speed. If you push down on the gas, the noise gets worse, and you're not goin any faster. I've worked around this by stopping the mule, dropping it in neutral, leaving it running for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, then shifting back into drive and it'll go a little ways further before having the issues again. 2. When going from a stop uphill, the entire mule will shudder and shake while moving for the first few seconds, after that, it lets up. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance! Chris

    Cam Am builds some very good quality machines where the Polaris models are of less quality but far more popular and ease of finding parts. CanAm parts can be hard to find in some areas. If you ever do a search for customer complaints/repairs per 100 machines produced by a manufacturer, Polaris is one of the highest in complaints and has a high maintenance record. That being said most Polaris riders are riding their machines hard as well. The CanAm machines fall in the middle somewhere with fewer overall complaints but more complaints about parts availiability. If you seriously considering a good utility machine then look at the Kymco line, NOT Chinese made, very high quality, parts readily availiable, excellent dealer service and is the lowest on customer complaints per 100 units made of any UTV/ATV manufacturer in the world. Have had mine for more than two years, 800 plus miles, ridden as a work horse primarily but have seen some hard trail riding and deep mud...."O" issues. Well designed, top quality materials and welding on the frame. I do not need power steering even with diff lock on, I can steer with one finger. Good luck in your search...

    Not long. It's just a clip to ground the spark plug while it is removed and connected to the coil.

    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

    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.

    Hi i have read your stories and i own a motobishi raptorex 2011 800cc (hisun strike differently named) Hisun brand its part of the ghanzou automotive that own cfmoto,odess, hisun and few other brand of utv. Check at cfmoto dealer for part. All driveline parts will fit on the hisun. It is what i have do on mine before it break and i never touched it again. The problem whit the yoke on hisun utv is a cast material and machining issue. If you are good in mechanic you can flip the coin and do brp, shaft and yoke upgrade (just need a good drive shaft shop to make new drive shaft
