Have a new r4 approx 800 miles just noticed the tach wont sweep with ignition on but the speedo does, also will start with out the clutch engaged.  my 2012 r4 tach and speedo both sweep and it wont start unless the clutch is engaged , any ideas why?. Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks Matt

Probably design variations and software changes over the years.  Your new R4 (presuming it's 2014 or later) has the 1100cc engine with a different computer than your 2012.  On my 2014, both tach & speedo sweep and will start as long as the transmission is in neutral.  As long as your tach and speedo work normally while driving, I don't think I'd worry too much about it.

Thanks for the reply it runs perfect the tach didsweep when I first got it , also noticed it's hard to start most times , I haft to actually hold down the accelerator to get it to start about 80% of the time just wondered if it was a software issue. other that that it runs great there is a big difference in my old one verses the new one  old one will go pretty close to 70mph the new one must have really low gears in 5th gear every 1000 rpms is 10mph  at 50 mph in turning 5000 rpms  so about 30mph is as fast as I go in it. Thanks Again for the reply. Matt

A little bit of rambling on my part here.  I'm only familair with my machine.   There may be variations between model years.  My speed is also 10 mph / 1000 rpm.  I've never had my machine over 35 mph - too fast for this old goat and also too fast for the trails I ride.  This engine is an over square engine.  That is to say the bore is larger than the stroke.  They are designed for higher RPMs.  Myu speedo redlines at 75 mph - implies that the engine redlines at 7500 RPM.  The Renegade uses gearing through the transmission and differentials to put more torque to the drive axles. The 800cc & 1100cc Renegades had a transmission with the part number:  5TO7D1   From the part numbers, it appears that the Trooper and Renegade both use the same transmission for the 800cc & 1100cc engine packages (Trooper 1100cc only).  Mine won't start until the gauges complete their sweep. Then it starts right up without any accelerator or clutch input.  Does your engine turn over with the clutch pedal released?  If not, your model year might have a safety switch with the clutch to prevent starting without the clutch being depressed.

      Hi I am new to the forum.  I have a small kids utv with a 125 4 stroke motor. It sat for over a year and I decided to get it running again.  Put a new carburetor on it and it ran better than ever. Change oil and fixed the brakes kids probably drove it for a few weeks maybe 3 to 4 hour maybe. Went to put it away after it sat for maybe an hour wouldn't start.  Just turns over no spitting or sputtering.  Checked compression has 150 psi, getting spark, changed spark plug old one was pretty black.  Put new cdi on and coil still nothing.  Any ideas would be appreciated thanks.

      I have my new to me 07 3010 running great. But I have a question It seems to rev high before the belt engages.  I put a new belt on but it didn't help. Is there some adjustment I need to look at?

      Hi everyone - Since Hisun makes Cub Cadet Challengers i am posting this here too as well as the cub cadet forum in hopes of reaching someone who can help me. 
      I was driving my 2017 Cub Cadet Challenger 750 EPS today on the ranch when it dies on me. It started right up - and then as i was driving after about 50 feet the engine just turned off. It was running perfect before it cut out on me. No alarms, no weird sounds or smells. It just turned off.  When I turn the ignition key, the starter cranks away and the battery and starter turns fast and strong - but the engine doesn't start. I've confirmed gas flow to the carb - that the fuel filters are clean and clear. I've replaced the spark plug with a brand new one. I checked every fuse with a meter. I have confirmed air filters and airflow are good.  But the darn thing cranks away without the engine even making a sputter or even attempting to fire. Is there a kill switch somewhere that could have been tripped? I checked the seatbelt sensor, the brake sensor, and parking gear sensor - all are working and i'm in Park, pressing down on the brake, and have the seatbelt latched when i try to start. but - nada! It acts like it isn't getting a spark. but like i said i put in a new spark plug. I have a feeling there is a sensor or an electrical kill switch somewhere that tripped.  open to any ideas.
      thanks all,

      I have a 2016 R4 and I was about to load it on my trailer and the steering just broke I think. My front wheels are both pointing outwards. Does this mean front differential broke?  I jacked it up and got them both pointing in the right direction. When up in the air they work together. But as soon as I put back on the ground and move it a few feet they separate again.

      Tried to remove my skid plate to access the engine oil drain plug.  The plug isn't near an access hole but located between two holes.  Can't get a wrench in to remove the plug.  Short of drilling a new access hole (which I'm seriously considering), has any one been able to remove the skid plate?  Seems to be a nut on the other end of the screw and there's no way I can access that nut.  They must have bolted the skid plate on before putting the engine into the frame.  Thanks in advance.
