By Regretting my choices
Hello. I purchased this unit as a "non runner" with the intent of using the frame to build a go-cart, but once I got it home it seemed way to good to part out. The motor cranks over, and I have spark, but no fuel. If I put a little fuel in the cylinder it fires up until that fuel is burnt, then of course it dies. The fuel pump is not running and I have removed the plug and there is no power going to it. I have checked the safety switch on the brake pedal and its fine, I have checked the fuses, all good, but am not sure where to go from here. The shifter is missing on the unit, but the indicator light on the dash shows its in neutral, and the e-brake indicator switch is working as well. I am thinking of jumping power to the fuel pump next to see if it runs and if the motor will start.
What am I missing? What can stop the fuel pump from getting power to it?
Last October we were sitting at an idle on a Sunday morning and it died for the first time since we time since we bought it new I've already sent it to the shop because it's under warranty after trying to fix it. New fuel injector new spark plug couldn't do a compression check because I couldn't find anything to fit it but now that it's at the shop I have a feeling that the exhaust valves tighten themselves up and they are not closing anybody ever have this problem?
I am working on a ride for a friend of mine, it is a Gunner 250. Machine was parked last year because it wouldn't idle right. It would idle way up then back down to almost stalling so they parked it. His kid now wants to ride it again so we've gotten it out. First thing we did was drain old gas and re-fill. Changed filter and spark plug. It will start right up but immediately dies. Checked for fuel pressure it and it is good. You can spray starting fluid in fuel injection and it will do the same thing. Fires right up then dies. Anyone have a clue what this could be? I appreciate any help I can get! Thanks

Hello everyone. I picked up a 2012 hisun strike 800 UTV. Previous owner said that it overheated. They were trying to drive it back to their vehicle and said it just stopped running. He said he thought it was a blown head gasket. They replaced fuel pump and looks like a new starter solenoid relay. It does not have any antifreeze in the oil so don’t think its head gasket (I ordered new ones anyway). It turns over but not with a lot of juice. (Kind of like an almost dead battery). I put in a new battery but still does the same thing. Any thoughts?

New to the forum! I have a Cazador UTV that is not flowing fuel from tank to carburetor.
How do I verify that all vacuum hoses are connected to their respective components?
How do I prime the fuel pump?
This is a Christmas gift for my 8 and 5 year old little men. I would certainly appreciate any advice.
Thanks in advance,
