Hisun Sector 550 Rear differential

Kevin Slack

Recommended Posts

I bought the sector hisun 550 for feeding deer, haven't had it a year yet and yesterday driving it I heard a bad noise. Took it back where I bought it and they said it sounds like the rear differential went out of it. Has anyone had any problem like this with there new hisun. I do have about 160 hours on it and 2600 miles. All easy driving miles.

I have a 2017 Hisun Vector 500 that had the yoke assembly from the rear differential to the drive shaft go out with about 175 hours.  cost me about 240$ parts and labor.   I also had a fuel injector go out on it with about 130 hours on it. If I had it to do over again, I would have stayed away from these Chinese made buggies and paid the extra for a Kabota Diesel.

I got it at royal king right now, that's where I bought it. They got to call hisun then hisun will have to send part to them. I don't drive it hard at all, hard to believe the boss would go out that easy. But I did drive it every day to feed deer. Had it sence March and put 160 hours on it and 2600 miles. It's still under warranty I just hope I can get around 5000 hours out of it. Sounds like I will be working on it in the future. I'm on a fixed income and it's all I could afford and will take 7 years to pay for it.

I take a easy with my utv, use it to just feed deer but do use it every day on gravel road and dirt road going back and forth  to my property. Just wondering if something is out of line or something to chew the gears up in 160 hours on utv. Guess I will see how long the new ones last. Didn't know anything about utv's when I bought it. The man at royal king said they have sold alot of them and no one has had any problems with them so I took the man at his word. I'll see how it goes maybe I just got one with soft metal.

That kind of damage is the result of misalignment and/or corrosion issues from poor QC and defective parts.  If the alignment was off, from a bad bearing or improper assembly the gear would "waller" in there enough to wear down the teeth.  You would have to put a small block Chevy in your SxS and do burnouts every day for a year to grind those teeth the way they are if everything else was correct.

Great I hope it was just defective parts. There's no alignment on it, the differential fits in a welded framed box that long bolts go threw differential to hold it in place, the motor sets on motor mounts so there's no adjustment on it. Rear drive shaft is only about 10 inches long. So if it's misaligned it was made that way. I will have to ask hisun what caused it. And see what they say.

      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.

      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!

      Do you know the Hisun sector e1 52c2 error code?  Will not drive.
    • By Daniel Goodwin
      I have a brand new Hisun Sector E1 that I got in March-April timeframe. Its got about 100 miles on it. I was driving it yesterday among some tall grass on one of my hills when it just complete stopped moving. Pressing the accelerator and nothing. I put it in reverse, nothing. I tried in 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive, locked and unlocked. Nothing. I put it in neutral, turned the ignition off and started it again and was able to drive forward about 20-30 feet and it stopped again. No errors. No 45C message, nothing. Just completely unresponsive. I had to "limp" all the way home by turning it on and off to get home. That 30 feet or so that it would travel was full power, I could push it hard or take it gently and it would still cut out on me. Its super bizarre. Anyone have any ideas what might be going on? I'm no electrician...I thought buying a sector E1 would require less work from me than an ICE vehicle, it appears I was wrong. I'm 2 hours from the nearest distributor so pretty worried about getting it serviced.

      I bought a 40 inch light bar and trying to hook it up to a HISUN sector E1 which is all electric UTV and uses Discover Dry cell batteries.  The light bar is not working. But when i hook it up to a regular 12 volt battery / car battery . it works .     any idea what is wrong ?

      My father in law just delivered our new sector E1 and after 5 minutes of driving around we smelled burning smoke and discovered the three wires red, yellow and green were burning. 
      It still drives but were afraid of it catching on fire!
      Anyone else have this experience?
