Hisun Vector 500 plow bolt

Hey Aaron, welcome to the forum. I can't tell you exactly what bolt you need for a specific application. But what I'd do, is this. Try to find out what approximate size it is. I'd guess around a half inch or so. The more important measurement here would be length. A couple of 3/16 pieces of steel, bolted together would need about a 3/4 inch length bolt, minimum. That's to leave threads for a flat washer & nut. You'll want to get a grade 5 bolt. Those shiny zinc hardware store bolts won't do for a heavy duty application, like a plow. But grade 8 is better. Price difference is negligible.

As far as the actual size... I typically use a drill bit to insert in the hole(the sizes are marked on them) if I need to be certain. Otherwise, I just buy several, at 18 cents apiece. That's why length, and grade is important. So you're not buying the whole hardware store. Buy a bolt of a couple sizes starting at a 1/2 inch×3/4 long, along with a couple flat washers each. The nuts would be locknuts. Be prepared to return to the store if it isn't a snug fit. 

I've found that it's always a good practice to keep a mindset, that I'll be returning to the hardware store before I finish the job...it saves my sanity sometimes.

I agree with Kenfain, but knowing the HiSUN uses metric bolts and fasteners, I would think 10mm is the closest thing to the 1/2" bolt. the 10mm is smaller than the 1/2", but larger than the 3/8". Most of the bolts on the HiSUN are either 10mm or 12mm when it comes to the big boys. they do have some smaller 8mm bolt openings but this would be too small to handle the snow plow mount area.

      I have owned my 2015 Hisun HS700 Crew  for about 3 or 4 months now. I got it used and was supposed to run good but was not put all the back together from a stator upgrade due to previous owner said he was going to out a stereo system on it. Anyway I have worked it much more than I have rode it. I seem to work on it 2 days and ride it for a hour. Me, my wife, and 2 kids (10 and 18) enjoy it but the engine compartment gets so hot. I've replaced the water pump and burped the cooling system and any other thing I could think of to bleed the air out and think its good with no air and water circulating. Fan seems to run fine and be on about all the time. Changed the coolant twice and oil 3 times. I noticed the engine really has nowhere for heat to go because heat rises and no air flow at all. Has anyone had any experience in this area? Any DIY tricks or any advice in removing the heat out of the engine compartment and getting it to a tolerable temperature. Im about to sell it if I can't figure something out and go waste money on a big name brand but I won't have red legs and arm from engine heat burning me and my wife. They machine never acts like its to hot or anything but it feels like it is. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

      I have recently acquired a 2012 CFMOTO 500 CC side by side. The previous owner said that it ran great but had a gas leak by the throttle body that caught fire and ruined most of the parts on top. It also melted the cover and fan for the stator. Does anyone know of a good place to get all of these parts? I usually use Amazon for all my 2020 hisun parts, but can't really find the ones I need for this. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance

      This is my first UTV and it ran great the first 500 miles. Then it slowly got harder and harder to start. Now I have to keep giving it gas when I first start it for about 1 minute until it will idle by itself. This past weekend I took it on the trail and it died 15 minutes into the ride and lost all spark. I got towed home and tried to see if I had spark the next morning which I did and it started but died 10 minutes later. Anyone have any ideas what I should do or check? Anything would help thank you!

      I acquired an older HISUN BIG BUCK 500 that hasn't run in years.  Little elbow grease and she's running.  I have a few more parts to switch out but when revving the engine over 4K the r light starts blinking.  After googling and seeing other people I replaced the rev limit switch under the air box and found the same issue.  I traced the green and white stripe wire back to the computer module and found no breaks in the wire and cleaned the connectors.  Still same issue.  I then cut the wire right at the plug and grounded it directly to the battery.  I can now rev over 4k rpm however the light still blinks and when in reverse the light no longer lights up.  Anyone else run into this?  Can R light blinking mean something else.....HELP, what am i missing?????
