Wasn't sure exactly how to title this thread as I have a few issues with my newly acquired hisun UTV. Hopefully going to consolidate all the issues in one thread.
I purchased from a guy who had rebuilt the engine replaced the fuel pump as well as re-done the front end. He had the unit running and driving when it quit and would not start. He got frustrated and decided no more projects and sold it to me. Unit is in excellent condition physically.....hardly any scratches on the plastics. All in all its a good unit with the following issues/symptoms
1) Mis fire and stalling out when revved
Well as you can see by the title of the first issue I managed to get the unit running. Seems that the battery was very weak. I charged the unit and it fired up fine. The engine seems to stutter and misfire when revved and once the unit warms up it stalls out. I think it's a fuel issue as if I give it a shot of ether it starts back up.
Additional Note: Revving engine in Neutral seems to cause indication to flicker and occasionally the reverse light comes on which seems to kick in the reverse rev limiter. Have also hade this happen when driving around. Reverse Light flickers and revs get cut.
2) Fuel line configuration.
When he replaced the fuel pump he got creative with the tubing and removed the "small fuel tank"
Not sure what the purpose of this tank is but would love some pictures of a stock set up so I can put everything back together correct.
3) Issues engaging in gear
The unit seems to have issues going in to gear...I will move the shifter in place but the gear won't engage and the lights don't indicate correct. It takes a few tries to engage and sometimes it grinds a bit
4) Rack and pinion slipping
This problem is probably a simple replacement fix...when turning to the right with the vehicle not moving the steering just slipps and turns without turning the tire. I believe I just need to replace the rack and pinion but if there is something else please let me know.
Any insight or tips on resolving any of these issues would be much appreciated.
This is my first UTV and it ran great the first 500 miles. Then it slowly got harder and harder to start. Now I have to keep giving it gas when I first start it for about 1 minute until it will idle by itself. This past weekend I took it on the trail and it died 15 minutes into the ride and lost all spark. I got towed home and tried to see if I had spark the next morning which I did and it started but died 10 minutes later. Anyone have any ideas what I should do or check? Anything would help thank you!
Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!
