New Member from SW Florida and Western North Caroina

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am a new member who winters in South West Florida (Fort Myers) and spends the summer in the mountains of Western North Caroina (Robbinsvile).

I have a Kawasaki Mule 550 that I use as a do all vehicle out at a small ranch we have here in Florida. When I bought it years ago, I figured that it would just be a toy but boy was I wrong. It has over 600 hours on it and still going strong.

I also have a Land Pride Treker UTV model 4220ST which I use in the mountains of NC. It's great for chores and riding the logging roads.

My latest addition is a mini jeep (XY XUV-4)that I imported from China. It's going to NC in the spring and I am going to attempt to

register it as a Low Speed Vehicle so the I can drive it to town. It's 4x4 with locking, 500cc CVT H,L,N,R, winch, lights, windshield, wiper, etc and even a fm/mp3.

Looking for UTV rallies in FL or NC.

It has a CVT which is like a gearless automatic. The engine and transmission is a Cfmoto 188 500cc.

See http://www.cfmoto-us.com/html/Product_item...lassname=Engine

The CVT uses a belt and the rest of the power transmission is via shaft and gears.

More info on the mini jeep is at

Have you had good luck with CFMOTO engines. I'm looking into a BMX 500cc UTV either a 2-seater or 4 seater just wondering on this.

I found the UTV on http://www.bestpriceatv.com

      Mule will not start. Turns over like crazy. Replaced plugs,oil is good.Does have one year old fuel filter. Has one year old filters pretty much throughout. Thinking maybe fuel issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
      First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
      So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?

      Before
      Crank un-installedPiston INSTALLED after honing.Crank installed after honing.
       
      Last pic is honed.
      Kind of blurry, took it with one hand. It looks better in person. It may not be professional quality but im 99.99999999999999999% sure it will work.
      Did better than I thought i would.
       
      So now, only ONE more obstacle. the crankshaft axial play adjustment BUT
      I need someones opinion ( i took the piston back out afterwards) not sure if you can see it, but in the picture with cylinder honed, it's almost right where the  glare from the light is, and on top of the cylinder directly across from the spot, it looks like the hone didn't get ruffed up.  any ideas? out of round cylinder, cylinder wore and needs bored??
