roll cage cracked/broke


ERV JR

Recommended Posts

well when i rolled due to the steering shaft issue and landed on the side it cracked the front roll bar at the A pillar, were the small bar is welded to the hoop, it is cracked about 80% of the way around the weld and tore about 1/4 inch in the tube. Funny thing is that it was resting on the roof rack while on its side so you think it would cave that in ,break the studs or something but no. It may have been from the load placed on it due to the roof rack and puling the cage. Its kinda scary that it came apart, but hey it did its job @ 40 mph and a new roll bar is being shipped today

      Got a new 2023 TBoss 560 with 40 miles on it now. Noticed after about and hour of plowing snow coolant started hissing out the overflow tube. Initially made a pop or blow kind of noise and then saw some steam and smelt coolant. Coolent level is in the middle between low and high (running or not). Coolant under radiator cap is full when cold, appears nice and green. Checked oil doesn’t look milky. The temp ranges from 160-180 F running for 15-20. Noticed the other day there was some more coolant that blew out the overflow tube. I called the dealer and they said the system could be purging air. Dealer is 2+ hours away so wanting to get more thoughts before considering to bring it in. Also noticing hot/burning rubber smell but I think this is from the belt breaking in? Also notice the coolant smell from the exhaust when in higher RPMs. No white smoke from the exhaust. Also another possible issue. I notice that there’s a little bounce when on pavement. You can also hear the CVT kind of make noise with this bounce in tandem. Is this normal?

      Got a new RTV XG850 Sidekick and wanted to know if anyone have any problems with theirs.

      Just bought brand new 850 side kick but seriously thinking of chopping the top to lower the top 8 inches.  So it fits in enclosed trailer and through some doorways. Any thoughts on this? My wife thinks I’m nuts.

      Hi, 
      I have a Coleman UT400 that is a couple years old (2021), that won't seem to hold a charge. We have replaced the battery several times, and the unit will startup and run for a period of time, then die out. When I attempt to restart, it acts as if the battery is weak. Install a new battery, and it repeats the cycle. 
      Do the magnetos go bad on these things? If so, how hard are they to get to and change?
       
      Thanks!

      Hi
      I have a 2022 hisun sector eps 550. 30amp fuse is blown for eps. Checked the motor and it’s fine. Opened up the controller and found a bad diode. Dealer wanted 500$ for the controller. Just posting this in case it helps someone. I couldn’t read numbers from the old one so just took a guess and replaced it with a 100v 3amp diode.
