Live in GA, hunt in KS and I picked up a 2017 Massimo MSU500 and so far just love this thing. I'm lightly customizing it now. Definitely better than my old Grizzly 660 for my current KS hunting.
Ill be picking your brains for info so thanks in advance to you pros for all your help and advice.

Brand new UTV owner. I've been driving a Polaris Sportsman 500 for a few years. We bought a Coleman Outfitter 400 a week ago today, and still trying to figure it out. Would really like to find a repair manual for it, if anybody can point me in the right direction. Our ATV/UTV are primarily to make life easier for us on our small horse place, but now that we have a SXS, we look forward to exploring some of the smaller back roads together. My husband is the mechanic of the family, and found that a repair manual REALLY helped after we bought the VERY well used Polaris a few years ago.
We have the owner's manual, but the nearest place that might provide warranty work/repairs is a two hour drive from here, best we can figure out, so an actual repair/service manual will be really helpful, especially once the warranty is up.

I've had a Hisun HS500 (Axis 500) that I bought at Lowes almost a year ago. I have downloaded the service manual found on this forum and notice that they have 2009 and 2010 year dates on them. Isn't there a newer version available somewhere? I'm about to try my first ever valve adjustment and am wondering if the info is the same. Mine is fuel injected but there is carb info in those manuals. Don't know if they still have carb models now but figure they did then.
I am a first time owner of a ATV/SxS. I have owned many many motorcycles (on and off road), boats, PWCs, etc. but never a SxS. Just purchased a 2015 MSU-500 this weekend form the original owner. It has 850 miles (150 hrs), been used each year on the deer lease. Seems to be in very good shape and well taken care of but we will see. I had a few questions I was hoping someone could help with. I want to change all the fluids so recommendations would be helpful for:
1. Engine Oil, any brand or type preference? (reg or syn)
2. Trans/final drive
Besides the air filter any other general maintenance I should do before I haul to the cabin?
Also, the original winch is not working. Any reason to attempt to repair or just replace? The 500 will be light duty, mostly just hauling brush running around the property so no need to invest in a Warn so I was just thinking something from Harbor Freight. Is it possible to replace the winch and still use the original controller or does that become obsolete and you just use what comes with the replacement?
Thanks for input and if there is anything else I should do or know please feel free to chime in. Also, I am well aware of what I have. It is not a Honda or Polaris, it is a Chinese clone and cost a fraction of what a quality brand would have cost. But for what I need and as little as it will be used this fits the bill, I hope.
