I have purchased a 650cc Utv that is in good mechanical condition but the Electrical system is a mess and is not my strong suit. I have purchased a new Regulator, coil and Distributer but I am having trouble wiring it all up as some of the wiring has been cut and removed. I have found a wiring diagram on line but is not colour coded.
My first job, of many, is to connect up the Rectifier Regulator. On the wiring diagram it has 3 wires running to the alternator (2 only wires currently as pictured but 3 pin plug) and one wire running to the positive of the coil.
Can anyone advise what wires goes where please? I assume the red wire from the rectifier will run to the +coil.
Got what I hope was a good deal on a Coleman 400 aka Hisun HS400. Previous owner returned it to TSC and it wouldn’t start. I pulled the plug and it’s fouled. Cleaned it and it sputtered, but fouled again. I did test for spark after cleaning and had a nice white spark. Plug is an NGK R DR8EA. I will be getting a new plug and a fuel filter to install inline. I was going to open up the fuel tank and check for debris and drain the tank as I have no clue how old the current gas is. Currently it won’t start so just trying to get it going so I can trouble shoot the rest.
Pull airbox and check for obstructions and clogged filters, replace.
Crank and check plug.
Disconnect 02 sensor and see if it starts
Check timing chain tension
Any other things I should look at. The plugs seem to have some oil, but that could be carbon?

Just bought a used 2015 MSU 500. I am in the process of replacing all the fluids and generally going over everything. I pulled the outer plastic clutch cover off and oil started dripping out. Oil was everywhere, a huge mess. I thought for sure I had a bad seal on the clutch or secondary. So I removed the clutch and secondary CVT so I could get a look at the seals and they both were dry as a bone. The only two dry spots. Now I am stumped. If oil did not get into the by way of the two shaft seals, how on earth could it have gotten in?
