New Cage


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

It will have V bracing front & rear and one tube running down the centerline of the roof.

Then I will eventually add an aluminum roof.

The measuring & bending is easy. Its the notching that is time consuming and monotonous. If you look at a lot of aftermarket cages the usually have less complex notching surfaces. The do this on purpose so they can hit it with a tube notchet and don't have to spend much time grinding & grinding again.

With that type of steering wheel, its easy to move the horn button to the center of the steering wheel, with a few other wiring changes, interested?

If I remember right, I used some kind of a domed washer or piece of metal with a piece for foam under it and the wire soldered to it under the fabric in the middle. When you push the fabric, the the washer contacts the metal to complete the circuit to ground.

yes, I already have a "cruise control" on mine, what it is is just a dial up the speed of the engine that drops out when I step on the brake unless I have the over ride button on. It also has circuitry in it so that if the spreed drops off or increases, it compensates. It uses an R/C servo for power to pull the throttle in.

Brakes, haven't given that much thought, but i suppose it's possible using a linear actuator that just pushes or pulls on the brake pedal.

      Just bought my first SxS 4 days ago. Looking forward to hitting some trails and back roads. Having a few issues with the machine(Vector 500), but nothing serious. Just setup and tweaking. I would like to by some accessories, but I don’t seem to be able to find much which is machine specific. Or at least my machine. Does hisun offer accessories? Any advice would be appreciated.

      I have a Coleman Outfitter 550 purchased in January 2022 that runs and operates pretty well.  65 hours on it so far.   It is a work vehicle for my 10 hilly acres with two 1 acre woods and 5 acres of "lawn".  The rest is under a lake. 
      My parking brake does not seem to have any grip.  It worked when new but after a month or so, it is just almost useless.     I press the parking brake pedal hard until it stops. Still, it won't hold even on slight inclines.   I don't see the caliper move as I press the brake pedal down.  There seems to be plenty of pad left on it and the rotor is shiny as if it is rubbing a little when applied, but not enough to stop it from rolling. 
      Any thoughts on possible causes?

      Put a new carb on the 500 to replace the leaking OE one.  Machine idles fine and mid and top end runs great.  It tends to have a hesitation right from the start - bottom end.   Thinking it may be the air/fuel screw??  I didn't do anything with the carb out of the box and is it direct replacement for my machine.  Of interest is the manual choke doesn't seem to work very good now.... wonder is it getting too much air?
      Any help appreciated!
