odes engine with i'm guessing odes drivetrain, low speed issues


demaris

Recommended Posts

i've purchased an 2014 applestone 800cc side x side.  what's an applestone, right!  found that out.  nearest applestone parts, new zealand. great.

it actually has an odes 800cc engine which helps.  and a cvt belt drive.  i suspect that the drivetrain is common to other vehicles but i don't know which.

my problem is that when starting off in high fwd, the right rear tire jumps somewhat violently and the transmission chatters a bit.  all smooths out when it gets rolling 5 to 10 mph.  what i'm trying to find out is if this is normal, or an issue with the differential, or a transmission issue, or the cvt?  bad gear meshing, or maybe an old belt that has been hardened?  is there a clutch in the design, not smoothly engaging?  my experience with variable drives like this dates back 40 years to the reeves variable drives that used be attached to ac motors by reliance motors inc. and others.  their design didn't allow it to idle while the motor was running and was intended to provide variable output while the motor turned at a constant speed.

any ideas before i start tearing things apart?

      That's the question! Or, if you want to add details:
      (a) How do you use the UTV? (roads? off-road to get to trees? etc.)
      (b) If you are wearing a helmet--how frequently? What type of helmet?
       
      My own answers: (a) Most of the time off-road to get to downed trees, cut the trees to logs and haul the logs back for splitting. (b) Very rarely, a ski helmet and not a motorcycle helmet.

      Hi, 
      New to the forum. 
      Came here looking for some experienced UTV users who can enlighten me about which brand should I pick for my very first UTV or SXS. 
      I'm between 3 brands and 3 models: 
      *Kawasaki MULE PRO-FXR   1000.
      *Yamaha wolverine rmax2. 
      *Can am Commander XTP. 
      The use I'm willing to give it is mostly to go to the range with my wife, load steel targets and all our shooting gear, we shoot a lot, rifles, Shotguns and Handguns for practice, training and competition. (Range is about 10 miles from home) 
      But also I want something that I can take to the trails and have fun on dirt, mud, rocks, puddles or creeks. 
      Any objective information will be appreciated, specially which is more reliable and durable. 
      Thank you and happy 4th of July.

      I know the hisun parts are not very solid and they seem to be Rhino clones to some extent. I'm trying to find better quality replacement parts than the ones that are "OEM"....

      Hi All.  The splines are pretty well worn where the rear driveshaft fits into the adapter (boss?) on the rear of the engine.  I have a new driveshaft / adapter / seal to install but am having difficulty loosening the nut holding the adapter onto the transmission output shaft.  I purchased a chain-type vice grip tool thinking that I could get it around the adapter to prevent it from turning but have not had any luck getting it in there yet (very tight space).  What approaches have you used that have worked?  Thanks!

      My "R" light on the dash will not go out when I take the UTV out of reverse and put it into any other gear. Is this just the light switch issue or will this effect engine performance in the other gears?
