Need advice on a fuel filter. This is a 2019 Coleman 550 Outfitter. Manual said to change fuel filter. Mine was assembled without a inline filter between the in tank fuel pump and the injector. I called Coleman, they told it was supposed to have a fuel filter. They sent me a metal inline filter and two clamps. The fuel line has what looks like an aluminum outer cover. I’m assuming the fuel line is a rubber one. Before cutting the line I looked at the metal fuel filter to see the direction of flow. Nothing marked on the filter. I called Coleman.…. They couldn’t help me, even after speaking to a Tech rep. It’s fuel injected, so I don’t want to screw this up. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I throw this filter away, and buy something else? I have replaced plenty of fuel filters on lawn mowers etc, but all were clear plastic, with directional arrows. Since this fuel injected, I’m thinking I must ypuse the special clamps, that require special pliers to tighten, and I might need a pressure capable filter?

Hey everyone. This is my first post and I hope you all can help out here. I have a 2016 Massimo 500. I'll start out with "it is a beast" I have worked the crap out of this thing and it keeps on coming back for more. Never had an issue except one battery replacement and this cold starting thing. When I start it up, summer or winter, it requires being in neutral, pre-loadiung the fuel by pumping the gas pedal (like an older carb model) and then once it starts, I have to maintain 3000 RPMs or more for at least three or four minutes before it will idle on it's own. After that, it will idle for as long as you ask it to. Any input?
Hi, I'm a mechanic and am at a loss for a customer's 2021 UT400. This thing only got used for the end of the summer, only has 3.3 hours on it.
So far I've found:
No start - starter switch works, relay in relay/fuse box clicks. Solenoid is operating as it should, no signal to solenoid to start. Starts and runs when I hard-jump the solenoid.
No F or R lights on dash - N lights up, and goes off when shifted into either gear
No brake lights - tested switch, it works as it should
No turn signals
Parking brake light is on - switch is working correctly, doesn't change status
All connectors are secured, no wires look out of place. I have an incredible dislike for HiSun equipment. Every one I've dealt with has been full of gremlins. Has anyone else had any issues like this? Would this be something wrong with the dash? Or the relay/fuse box? or both? I don't want to contact Coleman and have them send a bunch of stuff that won't fix it, especially with how long electronic stuff takes to get these days. The last warranty I did for them was a go-kart that shelled the drive shaft bearings and it took 4 months for them to send us the parts.
Any help or knowledge would be much appreciated!
My 2013 500 will only start if I floor the gas pedal and then once it starts I have to pump the gas until it warms up a little it sounds horrible until it warms up.(around 20 seconds)and then it will stay running. The exhaust smells like raw gas for a little while. The throttle body has been changed. Someone suggested the mass air flow sensor could be the problem ( is that the MAP). It has been to 2 different shops with it not being fixed. I haven't been able to ride it since last fall.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
