Over President’s Day Weekend I got stopped by the Rangers. First it was two Rangers by the time it was over there was 16 Rangers and 8 vehicles. They pulled me over for no helmet. I told them that I didn’t need one because I am 1100cc, but they didn’t see it my way. After arguing with them and threats of going to jail. I stood my ground and they called their super visor out and he agreed with me. He said that I didn’t need a helmet. I told him that I was going to get helmets so I wouldn’t be harassed anymore. He said that it wasn’t harassment, but I think that many Rangers was over kill.

Another solution would be to get a copy of the codes and high light and mark the page so you can show the unaware rangers that you know what your up to. However, in my EXPERIENCE, if you get uppity and they want you bad enough, they'll figure out a way to get you, so speak softly and humbly and explain how you have been through this before.

Same with me. I know if we get stopped we can get out of it because of the 1100CC but why take a chance. Went Simpson half helmets and although I don't want to wear them it is better than getting hassled. Yes CA needs the money and depending on where you are riding they will pull you over. I was in Ocotillo Presidents day and they were not citing but warning. I rode around some without a helmet and with a helmet. Went by a ranger without and he didn't do anything. Just depends on where you are. Still a waste as those Simpson half helmets won't do much but they get you by the dumb law.

      I Recently purchased a Massimo T-Boss 550F last fall with their 60" snow thrower because I couldn't find a decent UTV here in Southern Ontario; nothing in stock anywhere. I am having really bad buyer's remorse after spending time on it and reading all the bad online reviews. The company boasts the fact that it is built in Texas, USA, so I was hoping to do the right thing by buying, "Made In North America" but it is still Chinese Junk, assembled in the USA. and I am starting to realize that I am going to have a lot of difficulty getting parts for this thing; I can't even get an oil filter, finally bought a "Hisun" filter and hope it fits. i busted the shear pins in the snow thrower and can't find replacements for that either. The thing is so hard to change gears most of the time; I am terrified I am going to wreck something. The place I purchased it from is absolutely useless. Can I adjust something myself? Anyone out there have this problem and have some advice (besides selling it and buying a good brand)?

      Hello all,
      Was wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a good two way communication headset. It's too loud in my Razr to easily have a conversation with the wife, and want to go the headset route to help with that and reduce cockpit noise.
      Thanks!

      Looking for the truck bed components 2018 Textron 900 Stampede.  There is limited information available for the assembly.  Might need a parts list.

      I have an American Landmaster LM500 with an old style snow plow hook-up.  Unfortunately, the mounting bracket broke & I lost the key part where the plow receiver connects to the cross bar with two pins.
      I checked with customer service & they said...

I believe they are sold as a kit though and they are not cheap, part # 15329. I’ve included a photo below since the web store does not have a photo for that part.

      I checked with our parts department and neither the kit or the components are available as that was the older style hook up system. The only option at this point would to have something manufactured. All of our current plows are either dual actuated or winch hookup so we would only have components for those models as of currently.
      In the picture, below, it would be item #5 (the one with the two mounting brackets that hold the pins that the plow mount latches onto) - not the top one in the picture, but the one below t hat.
      I have all the other parts - but the missing part is critical to mounting the plow.
      Does anyone happen to have an old one they could part with - or have an alternative solution?
      The rig wasn't optimal, as you had to use the winch to raise & lower the blade & manually adjust the angle.  It kept falling off when I was plowing snow - as the pins that hold it in only have a groove for a pin clip & they would often get knocked off & then the plow would hang down & you'd loose the pin - then it would get all messed up.
      Thanks in advance for any advice.  I am thinking of going to a welding shop to see if they can create something - but it will still have the same limitations as before - the pins are highly specific and not cheap

      I thought the problem was electrical but I just found this in the oil filler tube. Does anyone recognize the part? I know I'll have to tear down the whole engine, and maybe I'll find the rest of it in there. Something beg enough to seize up the engine. That was the problem I was trying to diagnose.... 'Cause it's locked up. 
      Thanks in advance.
