Opinion on mounts


Recommended Posts

Hey guys looking for some input on this. Hopefully getting new shocks tommorow bolt size is 1/2" on the t2 I know the bolt is close to 5/8" or almost 16mm so what I was thinking is at the end of my new shocks taking the ball out that the bolt pass's threw and drilling it to the size of the t2 bolt so when all assembled there will be little to no play. Whats your opinions

Having just put new shocks on and had that problem, If you can weld, get a piece of 1/4" flat metal, drill a 1/2" hole in it and cut the outside to match the Trooper shock mounts, leaving room for the welding bead and weld it in. If you have a lathe, drill out the center of the stock bolt to 1/2" and shim the new 1/2" bolt on both sides, I have shims in mine and I think I like it that way.

Depending on how wide the ball is, I would not try that as drilling the ball would be a hassle(major) and then you would have to spacer both sides of it to keep it centered.

As I think about your installation, I think I like the way mine was set up with the hole in the ball being larger than 1/2" and they supplied spacers that went inside the hole and had a 1/2" hole in them. Actually, pretty slick, now that I think about it.

Ok thanx for input maybe I'll get lucky and the bolts will fit ya right!!! I was gonna take the balls to a machine shop see what they think I wasnt gonna drill them on my own! Welding I though about that but I don't wanna spend. A lot of money in welding I only have use of a kinda shitty welder don't trust it for that! I'll keep u posted thanx

The guy was like I will make them 7$ ea but they won't be very strong on there own I said wen its all bolted together and it's in the frame it should be

      Just bought a Bad Boy Bandit 750. Need to change the oil and filter. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty sure this a Hisun 750 Sector even though it says it's a Bad Boy. I'll include pics soon.

      Hey guys! Newbie here. I'm an old man who's better with plowing a mule (4-legged kind) than these newfangled beasts. I, and a friend of mine, just bought new Coleman sxs and are having to finish the assembly. I've been reading on this site and I'm falling on the mercy of you experts. The only way I'm an expert is that an "ex" is a has been, and a spurt is a drip under pressure. LOL First off, the 2 buggies have no ignition switches. They seem to mount on the dash, not the opening in the steering wheel shaft cover, so we ordered new ones that are supposed to fit. They are 8 inches long, and have a 4-wired white plugin which is slightly rectangled when looking at the end of the plug. The trouble is there's nothing to plug into. There is a three-wire grey plug close enough to reach the four-wire plug, but of course, they are not compatible. 
      Secondly, the blinker, light, ect. unit on steering wheel just spins around when touched. I see no way in heaven or earth to secure it. I've looked at a diagram on the Powersports site, but can't detect how it mounted. Fellows I'd be so grateful for any help with this. Me and my mule will even plow your garden for free, for your help. LOL

      Just received delivery of a 2024 AMP Pro.  Thought I'd start a thread with my impressions as I use it and learn more.  There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of real-world usage information out there on this model.  Hope this will help others as they research.
      Intended Use Cases
      Fire mitigation / slash removal from a 5 acre forested and well-gamble-oaked property.  The previous owners thought as much about fire mitigation as I do about fashion: not much. Snow removal Stump pulling General hauling (rock, lumber, etc.) Weimaraner energy depletion.  Wasn't an original use case, but a nice added bonus.  Experiences So Far
      Wasn't impressed that two of the bumpers on the underside of the bed where it sits upon the frame were missing.  The metal on metal contact has damaged the powder coating and the frame.  I expect a little better QC.
      I've only put a few hours on it, so not a ton to report on usage.  It isn't quiet; it's silent.  I can't even detect an electric note from the motor. I removed (and subsequently replaced) the motor cover noticed that the motor is German and made by Schambuller.  The motor controller is Italian and made by Dana TM4.  Given the operating specs of both I found on the web, I suspect both are higher quality than the previous Navitas (which is supposed to be decent).  The motor is rated at 25 hp and 71.5 lb-ft of torque.  It feels very powerful.  All the torque is delivered instantly, if desired.
      The bed is huge and has an electric dump as standard.  Great feature but would like it to go up a bit more.  Probably not feasible from an engineering perspective, but I want and I need ;).
      Power steering is nice, but vague.  Probably common to many UTVs, but I am accustomed to more direct results from input.  Plan early and plan often.
      In our first full day of usage, we hauled about 1/2 as much slash as the entire rest of the year when I was doing it by hand cart.  I may get fatter, but I'll also get more done.  After a few days of usage, the battery meter has gone down by 1/10th. 
      Until next time...

      Hy (pronounce he), just bought a Hisun Sector E1.
      I'll be using it to haul logs and stuff in the Sangre de Cristo mountains.

      I have a Bennche 700 EFI Bighorn. I’ve recently been unable to get it to start. After a little troubleshooting I realized my fuel pump was not pumping fuel. This weekend I emptied the gas and replaced it with new. I replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter and fuel injector. I also replaced the battery, spark plug and made sure all my fuses and relays were good. I have confirmed that the float on the fuel pump is not obstructed. The UTV is about 12 years old and has less than 100 hours on it. It has not run in over a year.  Not sure whats going on?!? After doing a little reading I'm leaning towards it being an issue with the ECU or perhaps a faulty wire in the wiring harness. Anyone have any ideas on where to start looking or what I could be dealing with? Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
