Thanks for allowing me to join this forum. Have been involved in atv's and utv's for more than 20 yrs.  Recently retired and sold my atv's and purchased a UTV for wife and I.  Looked at two uo atv's but liked the side x side much better, steering wheels are much easier to drive than handle bars when you have bad shoulders like I do. Wife has artificial hips so throwing a leg over is not as easy as it used to be, but the SxS remedies that. We noe have a motorhome and an enclosed trailer to travel the country and see the various trails in this great country of ours. We bought a Kymco model 450i and it has turned out to be an exceptional machine, trouble free and will climb a tree if you can hold on...I have no problem keeping up with much larger machines up to 40 mph, it has a great hole shot. Anyone looking for a quality built side x side should take a close look at the Kymco lineup. They have the lowest number of problems per 100 machines sold in the industry ( Polaris has the highest). Looking forward to hearing about everyones adventures and mods made to there machines.

Thanks, hope to be able to add some information from my experiences if needed, and looking forward to reading others experiences and comments.   As far as the Kymco quality yes, they are really growing and their reliability is second to none. They are not race machines but good solid reliable utility machines with a very good ride quality. So far everyone that has seen it has been very impressed with its comfort and performance.

      I'm working on a Coleman UTV 400 that has a rough idle, owner has had it for about a year. When I say it has a rough idle, it doesn't have the continuous smooth running sound. At times you can hear it kinda skip, sputter, or like the RPM has fallen (RPM stay constant according to the gauge) It's not as bad as it was after I replaced the fuel filter and fuel injector (both are Chiki) not sure if that is a quality brand at this point. Checked the spark plug, it was a little foul, but not too bad. (Since the engine is still idling bad I'm going to replace that) Cleaned the throttle body making sure the carbon and soot has been removed, and the air-filter has been cleaned. New fuel is being used so it's not old or been standing. They did tell me that they were using non-ethanol fuel, not sure if that would be causing the issue. Next two things I can think of that maybe the issue is the O2 sensor or the valves need adjusting.
      Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      I have a 2022 500 Hisun product, I have had them in the past. I change my oil myself and trying to drain through the hole where I remove the plug is a mess.  How does everyone keep the belly pan clean during the oil and filter service?
