I recently bought a used Kubota RTV900 with a plow attachment to take care of a long, steep driveway this winter. I think it’s a 2006 and it has about 460 hours on it. The previous owner told me when I bought it that it needed an oil change but I know nothing else about how well it was maintained over the years. While going through the items in the maintenance schedule I discovered a problem with the coolant system. The coolant reserve tank was completely empty so I filled it and soon after noticed a spot of antifreeze on my garage floor. I had never noticed a leak before. I took the protective panel under the radiator off the bottom of the RTV and could see that the radiator itself, the drain valve, and all hoses and connections were dry and tight as far as the hose going into the engine block. I then took off the next protective panel that is right under the forward part of the engine. The engine-facing side of this plate was covered with a mess of oily debris that had to be scraped off and the engine itself was pretty dirty also. I cleaned things up with some paper towels and ran the engine to see if I could spot any leaks. After running the engine for only a few minutes, I saw a drop of coolant on the side of the crankcase right behind the starter motor. I wiped it dry, started the engine again, and the drop re-appeared after a few minutes. I was expecting to find that maybe the water pump was leaking, but I don’t see how that would cause the coolant to appear so far back on the side of the engine block. I can’t see anything else that might spray coolant onto this area. If the cylinder block actually has a hole in it I would expect I would see a lot more problems than just a slow leak of coolant. I am fairly handy but as I’m sure you can tell I’m new to engine work so I thought I’d see if anyone could help me diagnose this problem. Thanks.
Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR. Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup. Quoted from the dealer at $366.00. For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare. My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's. I was thinking of going to 29's. Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub? All the dealers don't know. If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?

I just went once to do some mudding and loved it.
Looking around and the only utv for 4 i could find in my price range was a joyner.
None of the people that were there had joyners. And when i asked why all they could say is that bc its chinese and not good.
Well none of them have ever owned one so how could they tell its junk?
So can anyone tell me if its worth buying a joyner or save more and buy a different utv?
I haven't been able to locate a Service Manual (aka Shop Manual) for the Hisun Sector 250. Does anyone have one they can share with me?
I have the service manual for the Strike 250 (thanks Strike250), but I'd like to have the one specific for the Sector/Vector. Thanks!
