We have friends coming in from Santa Fe this weekend so we will be going out for at least one day, Friday. We have a saddle in the nearby moutains I like to ride up to as you can look down over the entire valley. Taks about an hour or more to get there and could take longer if you stop at any of the mines. Welcome to join us (doesn't have to be a Joyner) if anyone is nearby, south of Tucson.

Next winter. Plan is to do Rocky Point , El Golfo, up to SoCal & back down to San Felipe. I can get cheap fuel in Mexico before we come back into SoCal, Play for a while and get cheap fuel on the way down to San Felipe & back home. We try not to leave home in Oct & Nov as the weather is too darn nice to leave. Sometime between Dec & March.

Good ride today. Rode up to the nearby MMT Observatory, http://mmto.org/node/246 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MMT_Observatory. Most of the trails around here have been torn to pieces by the Border Patrol. Trails & roads are ROUGH. We were going to ride over a saddle in the mountains to a town on the other side. The trails & roads were so rough we decided to go to the top of the Mountain, 8585 feet high. While it was in the 80's in the valley floor it was only about 60 on top. Nice easy ride with incredible views. Everything went well!

FYI we are headed to Moab tomorrow. If anyone will be in the area let me know so we can plan a ride together.

Moab was a blast! Thanks to Landon & his group for showing me some new trails.

Trails done:

Hells Revenge (wife drove)

Poison Spider

Hey Joe Canyon

Fins & Things

Determination Towers

& more

Obsticals:

Hells Gate

Tip Over Challenge (entire family on board)

Car wash (wife drove)

V-Notch

The Waterfall

& countless steep walls

Carnage:

Lt front CV boot kept pulling off. I think it was due to the new long travel suspension at full droop in a hard turn. Gotta figure that one out.

Notes:

New suspension was super soft, but I need to work on the rebound & compression valving.

Fuel controller worked great. I only stalled the Trooper twice the entire trip. Once on Hells Gate & once in Hey Joe Canyon--both were avoidable

did you do any adjusting on the fuel controller or leave it at factory settings? Much more fuel consumption?

Significantly more fuel consumption. After riding with Banjo Minnow all day when he was at about 1/2 tank I was close to empty. I didn't touch the fuel controller from the factory settings. I was happy with it. I may play around with it later. My driveway is a 20% incline and my trooper idles up it at 900 rpm with the 30" tires. The tires are also about 15-20lbs heavier a piece than the stockers.

      Bought my coleman u400 from TSC last year, was running great. I live on a lake and use it almost daily to climb a pretty steep hill from my house down a path to the water. Last week was driving up the hill and it just quit. First thought was I'd run out of gas but it has almost a full tank of gas in it.  Have tried to get it to restart and the lights come on and it tries to turn over but won't catch. Checked the battery and tried to jump it just in case but it's not that. Checked the starter and it's good. Can't find the spark plug to even check that. I called the local repair guy in town and he told me he doesn't work on Hisun since it's all shit and I'd be better off burning the damn thing so that's been no help. Would appreciate any other ideas.

      1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken.  Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart.   Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while.  Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart.  We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in.  We looked things to look for damage further.  Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly.    We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine.   Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour.   Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop.  Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking)   Its a brand new OEM belt.  Nothing looks off on the spindle.   I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here.  I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs.  Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
      visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle.  It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time.  THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine.  It also affects the ability to shift the gears. 

      I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly.   Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day.  It has higher miles.  The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced.   The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit")   Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me!  I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else  haha..
