Rear right tire blew out going down the gravel road the other day, tried plugging it, but it was on the sidewall and it kept tearing down the sidewall, (rear tires are probably 10 years old, at least), so i called the dealership here in town since i knew they keep tires in stock.
Employee:"thank you for calling pro powersports how can i help you"
Me:"i need to check on a price for a rear tire, 01 mule 550 KAF300C5, tire size is 22x11-10"
Employee"alright, hang on one sec"
Employee "$237 for 1 tire"
Me :"thank you sir"
I found single tires on ebay and amazon and RM atv etc for about $70 or $80 shipping not included, so i ordered this set off amazon,
supposed to be here Tuesday, I'll be sure to keep this thread updated on how the tires do so maybe if someone else wants try this $50 a tire deal.
Do not know if any of you Hisun E1 owners have had issues with the parking brake pedal not returning completely, thus preventing you from moving forward or reverse. I had this issue and even sometimes when going over rough road the parking brake pedal would move down far enough to shut off power. Local dealer said no one had complained about that issue and they had no fix. So decided to correct it myself. I installed a return spring on the parking brake arm and it stopped the problem!
I am a mechanical engineering student who is trying to design a UTV to be used by maintenance workers around parks and university campuses. One of our unique selling points was that the rear cargo area would be modular so it can be swapped out for different "rear modules". For example, it could just be cargo hold but also a cage, refrigeration, more passenger seats or carrying woodchip etc.
What would be an easy way of detaching the different rear modules and swapping with a new one? A way of securing it to the frame but also allowing it to be removed with ease. From what I've seen, most UTV bodies are directly bolted to the frame.
Thank you for reading.
