Recommended Posts

Well, overheating finally resolved.. 500 miles on MSU500 now , runs great... Heres the rub.. transmission seems to be making a whining noise in gear only .. increases with speed.. anyone got any ideas?  Oil was just changed last month and is full and clear.   Just cant express how happy I am with Massimo!!! NOT!!!

Could it be something as simple as an adjustment to a cable or linkage? Maybe it's not fully engaged, thus the noise? Just throwing out some ideas here.

no, its fully engaged, pulls normally. no noise shifting into or out of gear or while  idle in gear.. just a  whine as you drive that increases with more power.. no noise in neutral or reverse .. sounds kinda  like a power steering pump low on fluid.. but theres no power steering on it

not yet... My ATV mechanic is out of town for 2 weeks  .. seems  like its coming from  the CVT .. Continuously Variable Transmission section.. maybe the drive belts are already worn out at 500 miles? .. Would not surprise me.. Such poor quality parts in this thing .. just spent $1500 on it to cure the overheating  .. I really regret the day I let my Dad talk me into buying it instead of the Honda Pioneer.. I now have as much in this one as the Honda sold for.. oh well... live and learn..

Kawasaki's CVT's in their mules whine from day one at increased speed.

Really? I was not aware.  maybe it s not a big deal then... I sure hope so.......... but 500 miles on it without whine..seems odd it just starts now.. and you know how  I have  confidence in Jackassimo quality

 yeah, once you get up to about 12-15 mph, there is a slight whine, but you're right, 500 miles with no whine, then all of the sudden... that's sounds suspect.

this whine starts at 3-5 mph and increases as you go faster in either LOW or HIGH gear positions.. .  does not make it in neutral so its not engine , has to be in that CVT contraption..

I believe so.. it use belts on tapered pulleys  to change the gear ratio according to rpm vs load .. I hope the noise is just the belts humming

well if it doesn't do it in neutral, then it's not the CVT belt or pulleys as they operate the same regardless of what gear you're in.

something internal.

Well, I guess when it breaks 5 miles in the woods, I ll find out  what is making the whine .. and you know thats when it will break , not unloading from trailer .. I m pretty sure its not the wet clutch or the gear assembly or bearings , because the oil is clear and clean ,no metal or clutch material in it, no burnt smell... and no noise at all idling or while revving engine .. so its in whatever turns with driveline.. but not coming from rear axle area..

Well, I asked for  help from Motorcycle Doctor that someone suggested.. They said jack it up on jack stands and run in gear to isolate noise.. seemed reasonable..  tried just rear wheels.. makes no noise, tried all 4 wheels off the ground... nothing.... not a peep.. just like revving in neutral.. NO NOISE!  . put it back on ground and the whine is still there. in high or low  range and 2 or 4 wd  .. scratching my head...

      I recently bought a 2010 Hisun 700 UTV and have been having a heck of a time with the throttle cable and carb.  I did get it to 38 miles an hour, but now its dropped to 33.  Is that the full speed for this buggy?  I am on my second throttle cable trying to find the correct length to make the speed consistent. I floor it, but it takes a good while to get up to speed.  What is everyone else getting for speed?  And any ideas on how to set the throttle cable or adjust the carb?  Thank you!!

      Hi friends. I'm Anıl. I live in Turkey. I have a Hisun 700 UTV 2015 Models. My problem is :

      Good Morning Folks..Happy New Year, I have been having some intermittent issues with my 2015 American Landmaster LM500 not going into neutral. Seems if I shut the engine off it would pop into neutral. Yesterday I was splitting firewood with a 500 pound log splitter that I pushed to my wood area up a slight grade. I was not able to get it into neutral which I assumed was due to the pressure of the weight of the splitter pushing back. after I finished splitting wood, I used the weight of the splitter to roll back down the hill to my driveway. I unhooked the splitter but still could not get it to go into neutral or start. I dragged it back into my barn with my mower as I don't leave anything outside over night. I am at a loss what to check to try to fix this. I use my UTV (Eustas) every day that I am at my place where I keep it and will be lost without it. Thoughts?

      Hi, I think I just bought a Husun 450 that is in need of TLC. It is leaking badly from the shifter shaft (located at left foot). I can not find a part number for the seal(s) 3 came off of the shaft.
       
      If anyone can help I would be extremely grateful 🙏
