Hisun 500 running issues


Midnite

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum!

Tough crowd here lol. But everyone here has a point, about it being a warranty issue, and it really should be handled by the dealership. 

Otherwise you'll be looking for a code reader for the diagnosis of the issue. Probably a throttle position sensor, or something similar. But with any of the Chinese UTVs, it could easily be the CPU gone bad, even though it's new. 

So you need to get it into the dealership service shop pronto.

They're all made or have parts from China. If you think any different,  you're wrong. 

funny, I cant find any part on my Hondas that says MADE IN CHINA ..can you be specific on which part?  and if you think MASSIMO /HISUN  is the quality equivalent of Honda, you must have voted for Dementia Joe . Even the factory rep at Massimo at Dallas assembly plant told me they dumped HISUN engines and went to Linhai because HISUN is junk..

Nothing can really compare to a Honda for sure. They have the best small engines on the planet. That said; I own a Massimo 500. I have work the crap out of this thing including pulling small stumps, carrying loads of rock, dirt, firewood and other stuff I'm probably for getting. I have had no issues except the battery but, mine is a 2016 so it was about time. Good luck with your 500. PS, my 4 wheeler is a Honda. It's unstoppable.

I too have an MSU 500 SXS .. 2017 model... spent most of its first two years in the shop.. not one cent from Massimo for repairs , ever.   Now that its got a whole bunch of YAMAHA Rhino parts on it to replace the poor quality HISUN parts,  it finally runs well.   We  also have 4 HONDA ATVs .. they are absolutely bulletproof.. you cannot tear one up. AND MY GRANDKIDS TRY REAL HARD !! When I bought my MSU 500  in feb 2018 , it was $2500 cheaper than a Honda PIONEER... I SHOULD HAVE PAID THE $2500 .. I would be way ahead now. I even tried to trade it on a  HONDA , with only 50 miles on the Massimo ..  Honda would not take it. at all .. THEY KNEW!!!! lol

Buddy of mine has a Honda side by side, not sure which model I Don't know. Beautiful machine. During off season (hunting) every time we were going out in the swamp, rough terrain I noticed he's say, "You taking your Massimo" when I'd say he he's answer "o'k I'll leave mine home. 

   One time he brought his Honda because he had big tall tires and would clear more water. We came to a log 6"-8" no big deal. He takes iy OUT of 4 Wheel I say wait, you can get over that log easier IN 4 W.D. He says "not with this thing, I've broken 2-3 front axels in 4 W.D. climbing over logs!! I said Oh, thats why you usually leave this home, he just smiled!! Yes, they ALL break and as far as a part saying Made in China, if anyone says any of them don't have parts made in China................LOL!

thats odd, I know several with Honda and Kawasaki SXS s and we all ride in the swamp together.. never seen one have issue climbing logs in 4WD .. Its funny tho, they can all outrun me on flat dry ground but my  Massimo/Yamaha has pulled a couple of them out of deep mudholes. And I dont mean with my winch.But it could just be the drivers.lol

as for the  moderators here, they would really not like my T-Shirt.. Its a stick figure humping you know who ..[ the potted plant in the WH]   lol   have a good one buddy

Oh dont get me wrong, my buddies Honda definitely was a nicer machine....I guess. But  $6000-$8000 more and his Honda came without a windshield and I believe he pd extra for the roof and winch, I know on lots of them you do.  All that came stock on the Massimo.  Another friend has 2 Arctic Cats, beat the crap out of both of them like I have my Massimo, he's had LOTS mort trouble with them than I have the Massimo.  My point??? None them are any better than they need to be, and they ALL have parts made in China, everything does .Lincoln is nicer than a Maverick.....but again LOTS more expensive, its all what you want and what you want to put in it.

my issue was the 1st  break down on first day with 1 miles..yes ONE MILE on it.. and Massimo basically told me to go "F' myself for warranty.  and again  ALL SIX TIMES IT BROKE IN FIRST YEAR!!!  They refused to pay one cent of repairs at a shop they provided . After a lot of cash and a bunch of NEW YAMAHA RHINO PARTS replacing the trash HISUN parts , I now have a decent machine.. but during the first year I never got more than 15 minutes use without yet another breakdown. My buddy's Honda Pioneer has over 6,000 miles on it and has only had regular oil changes. NOT ONE BREAKDOWN ..

we have a camp on the Atchafalaya River so I spend a lot of time there year round. Theres miles of good riding trails nearby. Kids and grandkids  too.

That sounds really great!! Now something like that I could really get into. We dream about a deeded rv lot to set up on, maybe sell the house…but here in Florida they’re ridiculously priced. I guess everyone goes north in the summer and rents their lot down here in the winter

we have 1 1/2 acre on the river.. two campers set up full time with metal buildings .. bought years ago. I m retired so we spend a lot of time there fishing etc.. Used to hunt but not too much anymore. Our property borders the Sherberne WMA and National Forest.  I can literally walk 100 yrds and deer hunt

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      So these Giant 48v/110ah batteries have just become available: https://www.aussiebatteries.com.au/giant-100ah-48v-lithium-golf-cart-deep-cycle-battery
      They look like they could drop in either side of the Controller that sits in the middle of the tray as they are 330mm(W) 355(L) 295mm(H). They can be paralleled, and I think two should be enough. Technically once paralleled the system should output 400ah continuous and 800ah Max (5 secs), more than enough for the E1 - probably 1/3rd more than is needed.
      However, the sales person stated that if the regen braking exceeded 400amps, it would put the batteries in standby mode for protection and they would have to be 're-started' with a jumper pack to reset them. Does anybody know the max output of the E1 Regen system, and if it does exceed that, is it possible to disable/bypass the regen so it has a zero output?
      Thanks.

      I can not find it on the board, so I'm afraid I'm the only cheapo on the forum.
      What is the fuel economy of the Hisun HS590? (I guess it is the same as the HS550)
      I count in liter per 100 km, but if you use MPG it's okay with me, but please tell if you use the US or UK MPG!

      After 10 hours of use, my machine had developed a low speed brake squeal. I removed the brake assembly and discovered that everything was put together dry. Not even lubrication on the caliper pins. After lubricating and reassembly, the squeal has disappeared. I will do the other three wheels today. Also, all grease fittings were under-greased (if at all) based on the amount of grease filled before they purged. This includes the drivelines. Next- I found many screws which were loose and/or stripped. I was able to tighten or fix them with my tap and die set. The lower a-arms on the front do not have grease zerks. I will remove the arms and install some. I guess I’m not surprised or even disappointed. These are just things that should be looked at on any machine. One thing I am pissed about though, is this “weld from hell” on the front . Totally unacceptable. For sure there will be water entry and eventual internal rust. 
      (see photo) I will fix it. I did an oil and filter change which some of you will say was not necessary. But break-in time is when you are most likely to have contamination from production and initial wear-in. BTW there was some metal in the filter. Cheap insurance to change often. Engine access is very difficult on this machine compared to other  models. You have to remove lots of stuff to get to it. But I still like the machine very much, and I’m having a ball with it. Future plans include lights, cab enclosure and heater. Winters are long in Northern Michigan.

      While adjusting my suspension, I noticed an unused two wire connector on each side just hanging loose. Anyone know what they are? Nothing in the manual about them.
