  1. On mine, the accelerator limiter is tied to the actual buckle. When a seat belt (or extender wink wink) is plugged into the buckle attached to the UTV, it acts as if the seat buckle is connected. Not too sure they are all that way, however if you really dont want to use the safety equipment (not recommended), this would be a work around as the extender can stay plugged in all the time. And, if you have a revelation about using the safety gear, (All The Gear All The Time ATGATT)you can just attach your seat belt to the extender.
  2. So I spoke with the dealer, who contacted Kymco-USA... I guess there was some back and forth between them, as the dealer decided to try another 700i LE that he had on the lot. Everything the same as mine, with the same speedo error results. We checked speedo speed with my GPS and also with the GPS feature on one of the mechanic's smart phone. The smart phone and my GPS matched perfectly. The speedo in the Kymco, not so much. ..... My dealer is going to investigate further with Kymco USA, as it seems that the error is almost exactly the same on all the units. Looks like Kymco has a design pro
  3. Not yet Keith.... I will discuss with them next week when the machine goes in for service. I imagine they will not have an answer directly but will have to contact Kymco USA.
  4. I must say that so far I have not been very impressed with the aftermarket parts availability, or the distributors responsiveness to issues that I have raised. Having said that, I cannot make a comparison to other brands as I have no experience with them. There seems to be a very healthy aftermarket part availability for the major brands (Polaris, Can-AM, Honda, Kawasaki) but they also have a lot larger market share. I am disappointed with the interactions that I have had with Kymco-USA so far, however as a BMW motorcycle owner, I am used to the business model that denys all issues until the
  5. So now that I have the seat belt extension problem solved, when I'm riding the UXV, I look at the speedometer and it shows a whopping 50mph (not kph)....Sure doesnt feel like Im going that fast so I clocked it with a GPS.... At 40mph on the speedometer, I'm reading 35mph on the GPS. At 50mph, Im reading 38mph... This shows that not only is the speedometer reading fast, (Read also putting mileage on the machine at an accelerated rate) but the degree of error changes with the different speeds... Calculation wise it reads 26% fast at 50mph(on Speedo) and 20% fast at 40mph (on Speedo). So,
  6. Success!!! Seatbeltextenderpros.com You can send them a picture of the belt buckle and they will advise you from there....Only took 3 days to get them. In my case, it was a "Type K" extender.... Unknown whether that will work on all the Kymcos....
  7. Thanks for suggestions Travis- struck out on both. Cant believe that it is a unique part, just probably not cross referenced to Kymco... The search continues!!
