2013 Massimo MSU 500 new primary clutch


Recommended Posts

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I never thought about it having 2 clutches. My experience with clutches is minimal, at best, and mostly limited to manual clutches on dirt bikes, and the occasional car.

But if it were me, I'd probably give it a very small amount of grease, extremely lightly applied.

Of course I googled it and watched a couple of YouTube videos but the info was very conflicting. One guy said it should be assembled dry to keep sand and dust from building up on it. One guy said that it had to be "packed" with grease. And of course varying stages in between. If one of those that know don't reply soon, I guess I'll just put it in the way it was shipped to me and hope for the best.

I did the same search, and saw the same conflicting information. I suppose it might be because of subtle differences in the exact types of clutch, and as I said,  I don't know enough to give a definite answer.

That's why I answered as I did. My theory being that a small amount of grease might help, but probably wouldn't hurt anything. And from my experience, gobs of grease, are only used in certain circumstances, and can sometimes do more harm than good. 

So since I don't have any real experience in clutch grease, I really don't know. I only responded out of ignorance, in regard to the vehicle having two clutches. Well that, and to give this worthy question more forum face time, by bringing it to the top.

I'd also like to suggest that you keep us informed about this project, through one of the threads you've started about this machine. We love projects, and pictures. Good documentation might just cause someone else to start their own project. 

Good luck!

      Greetings from Southern Illinois. My name is Bruce and I currently have a Hisun HS550 Performance Rural King. I have had nothing but problems with this unit replaced so many parts of it and of course, it stopped working and will not start again for about the 3rd or 4th time since 2018 it only has a little over 500 miles and has cost me a bunch of money and headache and the Rural King where I purchased it has a repair man who is certified to work on HISUN but he charged me a little over $600 to repair it once back a few years ago and when I got it home after it being in his shop for over 2 weeks the thing worked for a very short time but when I went to start it the next day it was the same thing and they wouldn't check it further without me paying for service, labor, and parts and I went around and around with them and since there aren't any dealer service centers for Hisun near me and even most of them can't get to it for weeks to months and it could be at their shops for months as they tell me they have problems getting the parts needed from Hisun to fix these giant paper weights. Oh, and you can't buy a scan tool (code reader) Delphi 190121 unless you are one of their dealers and I can't find any other scanner tool that works with it except the Tiny Scan Tool which I purchased and it will work if I could find the correct adaptor cable and connector to connect the Tiny Scan to the diagnostic port on the Hisun HS550 Performance Rural King. Yep, I pretty much have been screwed every which way that can happen with this machine. I am disabled, have cancer, and am on a fixed income so I need help if anyone knows what the connector is called (type or part name) that will plug into the diagnostic port to get my scanner to work it is a 6-pin connector and I hear it only has to have 3 wires connected to it.
      Thanks

      Starter will engage sometimes. Where can I buy a starter and solenoid.

      So I've got a Hisun 550 that I was doing some work on that required removing the CVT and it's housing. Upon attempting to reinstall the clutch, sheaves, etc, I found that the belt no longer fits - it's far too wide. None of the parts have been replaced, they're all OEM. Exactly the same parts as what I took off a few weeks ago.
      To be more specific, my belt is 1.25in wide, but the gap between the clutch and the primary sheave is only 7/8in wide. I'll include a few photos to explain.
      Has anyone ever experienced such a bizarre problem? Any help at all would be appreciated, I've been stuck on this for a month. I'm open to just about any suggestion.

      I installed a new GY6 150cc engine in a Bull Dog Pup 200 and when I put it in drive, it grinds for a second and then runs fine.  Works great when i place it in reverse.  Could it be from it idling too high?   Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Thanks!!!!
