2017 cub challenger exhaust upgrade.

I just performed the exhaust retro kit on my 2017, old system was way too restrictive, kept blowing joint gaskets, dealer warrantied the parts, I had to install, did you notice a higher idle? I have no adjustment to bring it down on my unit. Been a stout unit so far, I did wrap my header and exhaust pipes with basalt heat tape wrap, haven't noticed it glowing yet, moving the brake line was fun! (not).

It did not seem to alter my idle speed.  I wrapped mine initially, but turned red quickly.  I removed wrap and  installed a shield to deflect the heat from the u-joints and piped the clutch discharge air toward the exhaust pipe at the expansion pipe.  You might try unplugging your exhaust temp sensor to see if it effects your idle rpm.  I ran mine with it unhooked.  Seemed to not make any difference.  Much better exhaust system.  Good move and good luck.

Well, I took it out on a ride this weekend, 4-5000 rpm pretty steady, mostly gravel roads, about 15 miles in the head pipe blew into 2 pieces, I would say the wrap is a horrible idea, serious metal fatigue, Just thought i'd give an update, now I have to try and find a model number for the 2019 750 so I can see how much a new head pipe and gaskets will be. I'm seriously starting to question buying this machine, seems like everytime I take it out something else breaks! I'll post an update on how I make out with replacement parts

Thomas, I agree, The unit itself is sharp looking, but the engineering on this engine setup is definitely lacking, i plan on welding mine, its been sitting since the weekend of the 4th, i may add some structural ribs tot he manifold, it broke right into 2 pieces, and its not a clean break, so i'm not sure what the best course of action is, I think I'm going to have a friend of mine TIG weld it, as he's done snowmobile silencers, and marine lower units for me in the past, He's a master welder, so I probably have a better chance of it holding up if he does it, versus myself doing it with the MIG, (I'm an ok welder, but thats about it).

@VernoI have already installed the upgrade kit, it broke off at the manifold, as Thomas stated, kinda thinking about putting the original setup back on it and modify the muffler to be a little less restrictive, but that involves cutting it open, and re-designing the baffles, etc. Not sure I want to take on that headache right at the moment, (I run an HVAC department, and this has been a brutal summer in NY for AC)...lol

Put strap in front and rear of manifold it is holding up so far any other problems  with motor I've had a lot wish it was good enough to trade in even if it cost 2000 dollars

      Hello All,
       
       I am trying to find a Scanner that is works for a 2016 MSU500. I found the Tiny Scan TS301 that looks like a decent Scanner but so far have not been able to get confirmation that this works on and older model. It has been stated that it works on the 2019 and newer but not sure about older models. It appears that the ECM/ECU/EFI modules are likely interchangeable between a 2016 and the newer 2019 and on but not sure of the Scanner. I am waiting for feedback from Hisun on this issue right now.
       If this unit is not usable for my model year has anyone found and a Diagnostic Scanner for the older machines, one that works and is Affordable?
      Thanks for reading my post and any information that you may have to share,
      Robert

      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.

      Just wanted to share a few photos of some recent mods. Heat shield photo was taken before lift was installed. Still have heater, overhead console wire harness and snorkel kit sitting in the garage that I need to get installed.

      I have two of these models (Hisun) and both have the same issue. It started out low power and then one got so bad it would not start. The local Cub dealer did not have a scan tool to check so after I exhausted all the possibilities I could think of I took it to a local small engine shop who worked on ATVs. After 2 months and $1600 later we got it back and it was running great. They pretty much replaced everything fuel related, fuel  pump, spark plug, fuel injector, intake boots, throttle body, TPS and did an oil change. I ordered everything on the list for the other unit as all these things are pretty easy to replace. Before all those parts came in the first unit began to lose power little by little again.  I went by the shop and asked the tech for more info on what they found and he said the fuel pressure was about 60psi and should be 40psi and that was causing and over fueling issue. When I told him about what had happened he thought it may be another fuel pump.  I also asked if they had adjusted the valves and they had so I rechecked the valves and they are good. After searching the web I tried to relearn the TPS with instructions I found pertaining to a Massimo 500. Well it started to idle better and also seemed to not pop back through the intake like it was doing but only up to about 60% throttle. After that it bogs down and runs like crap. Tried the procedure on the other unit and now have the same result. What am I missing and/or doing wrong? Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

      When I’m reverse and under power like if backing up a steep hill, it hesitates like fuel is intermittently spitting gas, goes in and out and has no power. It must be a fuel problem?  What would cause it to pulse fuel in reverse only ?

      I have a 2015 cub cadet challenger, which is the same as the 700 hisun. I had a critter make a nest on top of the engine and eat about 6 inches worth of wiring. the sensors involed are the two coolant sensors and the injector wires. I need help identifing these specific delphi connectors so that i can try to purchase connectors with pig tails.

      After turning 2 batteries to water over last winter, I found that my digital dash display is staying on with the key removed. I was originally thinking the issue originated from the ignition cylinder but I'm now thinking its the ECU controller box under the hood. One of the unserviceable relays is making a weird sound when I remove the key. I have both batteries up to full charge and discovered the display issue last week when I saw the lights on in the dark.. Do any of you have any input on this issue? Ignition or controller.. Any help before just ordering parts would be helpful  The controller is $140  not sure on the ignition.. Thanks in advance..
