Shortly before the Les took the pictures 18 & 19, That big rock that you can see in picture 18 & 19 was right against my rear wheel and I didn't realize that I scratched the heck out of the wheel until I washed it yesterday. OWWW :( But I got it cleaned up now and since I had to reoil one shock after the jamboree, I figure I'll do the other and get rid of those long long shock bolts.

Kinarfi, I really like how quiet your trooper is, what did you use for a new muffler. I can't find anything to use up in my neck of the woods and frankly, my trooper is just too loud!

Me too, I can go for a ride and talk to who ever is with me without screaming, the sound was very pleasing at first, sounded like power, but that gets old after an hour or two. Still use the headphones from my airplane once in a while for the noise of the squeaks and wind and all and the mikes on them make speaking so simple, don't have to raise you voice at all. The muffler is off of a Harley Davidson, Lenny found a set of 2 in a 2nd hand shop in St. George, Utah and put one on his and one on mine. Oh yea, I had to cut about a half inch off the end of the stock exhaust pipe.

LOVE IT.

Thanks Lenny and Kinarfi. I had thought about using a motorcycle exhaust but they're all 2" or smaller in diameter and the outlet diameter on the Trooper is 2.5 Did you just use an adapter?

No adapter needed. The Trooper has a 2" pipe coming out of the cat converter. I did use a real tight 90 degree elbow, about a 4" radius, to keep it tight to the rear of the frame.

One thing I would like to comment on in regards to my compression problems, presumably rings, is that every morning, I had to have a hill to coast down to get things started, once the engine had warmed up, it started like a champ every time for the rest of the day, I did notice I am down on power, rings again, but it starts and runs and I saw lots of green, beautiful scenery and the weather for the most part was great, it had rained some, so the dust was down. It's fly season there, so there were quite a few flies and depending on where you were, the mosquitoes were tolerable to bad. Planning a return trip with my son and grand kids soon.

Went for another ride ( http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/578401809wPUGkE ) -- Wildcat Canyon and Strawberry Pinnacles, Aug 14 thru 16, 181.8 GPS Miles. Some really nice scenery and fun trails, even if some long, good roads petered into nothing and some others came to a locked gate. Had one minor accident, tried to turn around in a wide spot on a narrow road, backed up a hill with a hard right, planning to follow up with a hard left, but when I went to hit the brakes, my foot missed the brake peddle and got caught under it and I forgot the keep turning to the left and went off the road down hill until some aspens stopped me after running over some smaller ones. Put it in 4X4 and Locker and backed back up onto the road. Damage: both front fenders cracked or broken and the supports on the left side bent downward, other than that, OK, but that's plenty of damage for me, I don't want any more. :blink: Still coasting down hill or pulling to get started every morning after the engine cools off, :angry: thinking about wrapping it at night with a blanket to see if it stays warm enough to start in the morning, <_< .

There are some advantages to not working, you get to play during the week while everyone is working and you're only one out there, for better or worse!

Put an electric heater under it overnite. That's got me thinking. You could heat just the area of the radiator, lower right rear, where the Temp sensor is and see if that helps. Then try the MAP sensor on the intake manifold. Even the oxygen sensors on the exhaust and the temp sensor on the front of the cylinder head. You get the idea, maybe you can isolate the problem this way. 181 miles, that is a long way. Parking brake didn't work?

SO, you are reporting the first wreck of a Trooper in our group here. Be careful there!

Nope, no parking break, burned it out by leaving it on too many times and there is a leak in the left side where it attaches to the calipers, fixing it tomorrow, I hope, and putting new pads on the parking brake. Anyone find an alternate yet, let me know and I'll put in the parts & pieces post.

My thinking is that the oil is up in the rings and the cylinders are warm and the air is warm so it starts, When I start it for the first time, I can tell that it lights on or two the others catch on as I go faster and I'm not sure if it makes or not, but I hold the throttle wide open as I start and keep the rpms up for a little while.

I think I will try putting a heater under one night to see if it helps, good idea.

Don't know if I would call it real wreck, maybe an inadvertent abuse of it's OFF THE ROAD capabilities. Maybe I need to be more careful.

Guess I shouldn't been surprised, House Of Hose wouldn't fix my brake line, flat refused even though they could have, "LIABILITY" and for them to build a new one was $75.00 so I looked at http://www.jmcmotors.us/my_account.php and it was only $29.21, brake pads were $11.40, per set I hope, ORDERED!!

Now to build some sort of visual, audio alarm for when I leave the brake on.

      Hey all, I bought a Hisun 550 back in June of 2019. After 6 weeks of ownership, this machine took to sputtering when started and under power. I checked everything I could think of before I took it back to place of purchase....(rural king), since it had a one year warranty.   They kept it almost two months stating they were waiting to get info from Hisun to rectify the issue (supposedly faulty drivers seat belt). I was told by the tech that they replace seat belt harness and cured the problem. It did! Ran just fine again for almost a year and now the very same issue has returned. After doing a little investigating on my own, I noticed that rural king did not replace the seat belt harness at all.  The wires to seat belt connector was cut and spliced and taped back together. Now I’m not real sure what the real problem is as that tech is no longer with company and can’t seem to locate the past work order for my machine.  Hisun customer service is non existent . I’m on my own and begging for help. Im mechanically inclined but if this is an electricical issue, I’m screwed! No warranty left. Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

      Hello,
      I have a 2018 Dominator LT 1000 and I am wanting to stiffen up the ride.  What is the best way to accomplish this, tighten the recoil spring up or add air to the shock.  I can't find any information on the procedure.  Also, since im asking questions........my top end rpms doesnt seem to be where it should be.  Max RPM is 6100 and usually drops down to 5800 maxed out.  Im just wondering if everyone else has the same experience.
      Thanks,
      Kirk Falk

      My uncle has a Warn winch he used to have On his gas Yamaha golf cart, he said I could have it if I wanted it, I'm just not quite sure how to hook it up, wiring wise.
      I have no other electrical accessories that are tasking the alternator (15 amp)
      And I can still buy the OEM winch mount or fabricate one myself.
      The mule has 2 electrical accessories hook ups, but it's a fairly small wire, not sure if could handle the load..  I even though about welding up a plate as there is plenty of room to mount another battery for the winch only either under the bed or under the front dash/firewall. And using a deep cycle battery and keep it on a tender.
      A winch would come in handy for moving larger limbs or stumps  or sections of a tree when I'm by myself.
      Any info how to proceed is appreciated.
      As most of you know, Mule 550, ksf300-c5.

      Hi All,
      Our Hisun is not making any power. Once you start to climb RPM's it almost sounds like the timing is out, it sputters and farts and doesn't want to climb RPM's at all. It starts fine though.
      I checked and set the valves, they were a bit tight but not bad. The spark plug is very black. The exhaust valves are a real nightmare to get to fyi.
      On the last service the dealer put the wrong plug in, so I'm switching that back to stock as soon as we get one. I'm also thinking the air filter should be checked/cleaned. 
      Any other things to check?

      Can anyone help me locate the back up siren?  It is so loud it really hurts my ears.  I'd like to be able to disable the noise or at least muffle it.
