Stay as far away from Hisun as you can, fit and finish nice but I bought a truck load and every single machine failed in the first 5 miles and took months to get parts. 5 out of 5 generators failed as well and they would not offer any warranty support! They set up dealers just to get rid of inventory. Units that cannot be retailed to dealers goes to the auction house and drives the value down, Nada wont ever put a resale value for Hisun on their website. They do not support dealers, I finally got my last one to the auction house and the throttle cable broke on it way to the selling line!
Its like throwing money away doing business with these folks... Run away and hide from Hisun as fast as you can! or just send me the cash!
Hey folks. I recently acquired a pre-owned Hisun 500, carburated. And surprise... it has issues.
When cold, it typically starts without any issues, but once it warms up it tends to sputter and stall out. When accelerating, you can also feel it hesitating occasionally, and when you stop or put her into reverse, she will often stall. The fuel is clean, I installed a new fuel filter, and the air filter is clean. Though the fuel pump appears to be working ok, it makes a strange knocking sound whenever power is put to it. I've never heard anything like it, and I'm not sure if its shot or just a cheap Chinese pump thing. I have an aftermarket pump coming, and I've ordered a new ignition coil as well on the off chance that it is faulty. I am hoping replacing these two parts will solve the issue, and if it does I will post the results here.
If not, anyone have any other ideas? Also, I've noticed it is very difficult to find parts for this make... any suggestions on a good source for Hisun parts? I appreciate any comments or insights.

I need some expert help.. I just bought a 2017 HiSUN Strike 250 and was real disappointed to find out that there is an electronic spark cut out at 30 mph. Every article that I read prior to purchase said that the unit could hit 45-50 mph with the pedal stop screw removed. Not the case with my machine. Never bothered to ask the dealer before purchase, so it is my fault... My guess is that HiSun got some flack about thier "kids" machine doing 50 mph and were forced to add the electronic limiter.. Can anyone verify that previous to the 2017 model that the machine can actually could do 45-50mph with the just pedal screw removed? If so, what RPM is it at when doing 45-50 mph. Maybe I can get an older version of the Delphi ECU, assuming that is where the spark cut out is located...?
The machine is definitly full featured, but as you all mention, needs to be gone over after purchase. A-men to stipped screws, and if you suffer from a crazy squeak sound that sounds like chains dragging, check the torque on the suspension a-arms and shocks. Ours were so tight, we could barley get them loose and the suspension would not move, essentially zero travel. Once we lightened up the torque, greased the plastic bushings, and added blue threadlocker, the suspension actually worked and all the squeaks went away. Also have same problem with the shift linkage rubbing on pipe and also pipe rubbing on chassis.. This weeks project!
Any help on the speed would be awesome!
Hi Everyone, This is my first post. I believe I have my starting issues narrowed down to decompression springs (good grounds, one way bearing, etc.) so I order them and now I have no idea how to install. I am handy enough, but looking for a video or other instructions on how to replace them. If this has been covered and I just can't find it, appreciate some input on where to go. If not, would appreciate some instruction! Haven't done this one before. Thanks.
