Hey guys just bought a 07 trooper. Previous owner stated it ran great etc prior to clutch job then had issues. I drained tank, replaced plugs etc. found one of the injectors connectors was not connected and plugged it in. Solid 50psi fuel pressure. It starts easier than previously on 3 cylinders but still runs very very poorly. I’m thinking the sound I’m hearing is it detonating at around 3k. It kinda sputters and falls apart. Sounds like clicking or something when it happens. I am at a bit of a loss, compression is a solid 150psi across the board with no movement. Verified spark and now am assuming all injector are functioning more or less correct as if I unplug any one it sound terrible at idle.
A note, I tapped plugs at .7 manual called for .9-1.1 but that seems super over doing it but I will try adjusting them to 1.0
additionally I’ve noticed the fan in rear doesn’t turn on.
anyone with any help I will be in your debt.
Installed my Christmas presents yesterday (light bar and underglow kit).
Loving this machine!
Light bar 210w combo
Purchased a 2021 T-Boss X-Golf 550 about three weeks ago and am having a blast with this thing! It's a very capable and well built machine.
I've put 30 hours and 400 miles on it so far. I've really put it through its paces too. Been tearing around the sand dunes, climbing very considerable hills with no problem, tore through some light mud and even hauled around a couple adults around the neighborhood to look at Christmas lights!
Did my after break-in service and am using Lucas oil for oil changes and differential changes. The manual calls for 15w40 but couldn't find any so after speaking to Massimo the said 10w40 Lucas atv oil was fine.
Anyhow, I've done the "cooling fan jumper wire" mod almost right away. I've also installed an overhead stereo system that looks like it belongs in there stock along with some LED's. I have an underglow kit and light bar I'll be adding during the Christmas break so I'll add pics once those are installed.
Here's a link to the overhead speaker box if anyone is interested. I can take better pics if interested in how I mounted it.

Soo for my second problem lol, 2009 trooper 1100 5 speed , will not engage 5th gear , all others work fine but seems like 5th doesn't engage completely and wont grab the gear. Any idea on where to start looking for issues, or what to look for in regards to linkage.
