After owning a Polaris Sportsman forever, I bought a golf cart to use as well. That went well for a couple years but I recently decided to sell both and move up to a UTV. After looking at and missing out on a few used units, I decided to buy new and went with my avatar. Since finding this forum I've read a few horror stories about the older Massimo models and am aware of the "fixes" for those. Currently still in the break-in mode and adding accessories along the way. May do a few trail rides here and there, but it's mostly a hunting vehicle, so it's main use will be to haul stands in and deer out!
you're sick of chinese Crap but really can't afford the good OEM part?
Starter on the mule, i finally replaced the old D&B electrical starter (on august 28th) on it that was at least 5 years old with probably a million starts on it and apparently D&B no longer makes it/sells it, so i bought a $53 starter from CHYNA on amazon.. on august 19th, well here it is barely 1.5 months later, it clicks several times before it will spin over, all connections were good and i tested the key switch, and trigger wire voltage as well as the starter relay according to the service manual and they all check out. usually a tap with a hammer or if i turn the key back and forth fast several times it will kick in and start. would it be worth my time to remove the starter and lube it??
I've got the Denso and Kawasaki part numbers but boy... $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
even a Reman denso is $230.
does anyone know of a decent aftermarket starter maker that might have one?
i've 12.5 volts at the big cable, and i get the same at the trigger wire as the manual states, but when its in F or R i get no voltage at the trigger, so i know the Neutral safety is working properly.
and if anyone can find one the DB starter was 190-542 18450
You never know how much you'll miss something 'til it's gone...
Advise your hosting service to install a dry (argon/halon) fire suppression system. 99.44% of the time with wet systems the water does more damage than the fire--this is true in almost every industry, but more so in server rooms.
Just picked up a 2020 UT400 that my 80 year old father will be driving around the farm. We purchased the machine with a few "issues" and they lowered the price accordingly. Small stuff like passenger size mirror and back reflector was torn off by a Tractor supply employee, which we will order replacements for. Also after further inspection, whoever assembled it did not put a few bolts in the rollcage and aren't in the glovebox, so will be having to order those also.
Anyway, there are two initial things on the UT400 I'm not sure what they are or for. The first, there is a square white electrical connector with about 8 pins hanging form under the middle of the back bed - I don't see another one to match up or plug into it, so wondering if this is pre installed optional connection for like towing around a sprayer? Anyone know what this is? Also, there is a 10 inch black rubber hose that is zip tied to the back A frame on the passenger side. I watched the assembly video and it doesn't mention one, so don't know what this hose is for - anyone know?
Also, has anyone come up with a "fix" or work around for having to have the seatbelts plugged in or even in place? We aren't planning on using them and are figuring just plugging them in and wedging them behind the seats - didn't know if there is a way to just disconnect the "over 10mph gas starving" safety sensor.
Looking forward to seeing how this machine does for my father. I'm thinking about installing a suicide knob on it for easier turning for him, as it's a little stiff (compared to our Kawasaki Mule). Maybe with use it will loosen up some?
