new to the forum, had a 08 trooper t2 for 3 years and was online looking to see what was availabe for upgrades, seemed to find the most info on this site. have added 30" ZILLA's and a set of QA1 coil overs. i have ordered a silver bullet fuel controller and air / fuel ration gauge. i hope it performs as advertised. have had to replace the 4 wheel shifter ( was full of water ) and the fuel sender crapped out on the last ride. currently have about 1350 miles on it and my only real beef with it is all the rattles, they seem to pop up everywhere, fix 1 and you find a new one the very next day. thinking about power steering, does anyone have any recomendations on this ?

thanks

Welcome.

I had a '08. Yes they have more rattles than the rest because they used more wielded metal in the panels. What I had to do was caulk ALL the seams, floors, storage compartments under the seats (they were the worst), everywhere you can get to with the caulk (just get a good quality outdoor CLEAR caulk from Home Depot or local hardware store). Took care of most of the rattles except in the steering. That requires Lenny's steering upgrade kit or replace the steering rack. Hang in there, you will get most of them.

thanks rocmoc, winter is coming up here in alberta and i dont ride it in the snow, i think this winters projects will be to try your caulking, get the steering rack looked after and hopefully find a good electric power steering kit to install. i am also having the same oil pressure problem many other talk about so i think the cooler add on is in order.

      hello everyone, i just joined this forum to try my luck, few days ago i bought an old (dont know exactly), 2011/14 hi sun 500cc ""carburated"",  was not running at the time, but i fell was a good deal and decided it to bring it home to play with it, this is the issue, i bought and installed a new carb, and pump, i repositioned the battery location and upgraded to a "car batt", reconnected the fuel lines and started it, but it only runs with the choke ON, i checked the bowl, it does have fuel,but for some reason wont inject it to run, i came across a video that say that ""the body small tank had to be connected for the cart to run" (was deleted when bought), sure enough i got it to run sporadically , but the so called ""small body tank'' often runs out of fuel and wont refill itself , i had to couple times do it manually, so how does that small tank works ?..what does it do?..and why if  bypass it , the cart wont start?....any help?..thanks so much!!!

      Hello, 
      I found an 08 Renegade for sale and looking to purchase it.  I haven’t heard too much about these machines and any insight would be much appreciated.  Are they good machines?

      starts up you have keep rpms up for 5 minutes till it warms up then runs fine. But if it stalls wont start unless you unplug fuel pump and hold it to the floor till it starts then plug pump back in and run it till it warms up then it is fine all day.

      Bought a Massimo 500 last night. Stopped and filled it up on the way home and I put the wrong gas in it. Is there a drain plug on the bottom of the tank that I can get to or will I have to siphon it out?

      I have a 2012 Massimo MSU 500 that died. I found that it didn't have spark and the fuel pump wouldn't run. Checked all fuses and none were blown.
      Went through and replaced the ignition coil, HT lead and spark plug. Still no spark.
      Thought it could be the fuse/relay box because I didnt' know much about the machine at that point so I replaced it. No spark.
      Then I replaced the ECM just because I was running out of ideas. No spark.
      I removed the 9 pin connector and hardwired it making sure that they were no wires got swapped. Still no spark.
      Then I replaced the wiring hardness. In doing so, I replaced the 9 pin connector with new ones. I made sure all wires were matched up between the engine harness side and the other harness assembly. Still no spark.
      I have no other ideas what to do. My fuel pump doesn't kick on and I have no spark. I have 12V on the fuel pump, ignition coil and fuel injector, but no ground from the ECM control.  I unplugged the fuel injector and waited for a diagnostic code but nothing ever came in. It makes me think that the ECM isn't powering up. I've checked for 12V on pins 18 (purple wire) and 15 (white and black wire). I also checked for ground on pin 2 (black wire). All are good.
      I am out of options here and I have no idea what else it could be. I have all connections redone and are coated with dielectric grease. I've checked all easy things like fuses and making sure I have 12V in the right placed. I would appreciate any help.
