I just went once to do some mudding and loved it.
Looking around and the only utv for 4 i could find in my price range was a joyner.
None of the people that were there had joyners. And when i asked why all they could say is that bc its chinese and not good.
Well none of them have ever owned one so how could they tell its junk?
So can anyone tell me if its worth buying a joyner or save more and buy a different utv?
I recently purchased a 2020 Massimo 400 EFI and began installing soundproofing to lower the overall body noise. The model I choose is the crew cab with rear facing seat and diamond plate bed.
the first phase involved removing the rear deck and applying Noico 80 mil sound deadening mat over the exposed diamond plate sections of the underside. This immediately removed the sound of vibrating metal plate!
Next phase is to continue this application to the interior of the plastic around the engine compartment and then any other plastic panel that has a "hollow" sound. It will add 2-3 pounds to the overall vehicle weight but it makes a huge difference in noise reduction. One question I have - there is a vent directly in front of the engine (behind a drivers leg about calf level) I am strongly thinking about covering this as the level of engine noise here is huge. The engine is water cooled so I don't think this is a problem as the air input is minimal - but i don't wish to overheat the engine.
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.
Hey people! I'm looking for a ring and pinion set for my rear diff. The bolts that hold the pinion shaft cover in place decided to pull threads and my pinion gear broke some teeth. Any help would be appreciated! I priced out a new diff and it's worth a lot for something that is prone to failure. Thanks in advance
Well, after a bad experience with repairs to our Trooper, Lloyd tore into the engine himself. We originally wanted to save time by hiring the engine rebuild out, but that bit us square in the butt. Remember the discussion about Silverbullet motorsports in Yuma??
Stay tuned....we'll let you know what happens.
Has anyone rebuilt the engine in these troopers?
