1 1/2 years ago I was riding along in my 2018 Coleman 550 Outfitter when the CVT belt broken. Just prior to that I was having some shifting issues that I now understand can be part of the clutch. Finally a few months ago I sent it in to a shop who put in a new belt as well as a new wet clutch (drum, one way bearing, etc and an oil change) He fired it up and it turned on fine, sounded fine and I took it home. It was an auto shop but not a UTV specific shop. So get it home and after a half hour or so it started making some noises with my 10 year old driving it around. I get home and he said theres noises again and I played around a bit. Within a short bit of trying to drive it around I started having noises that I now understand was my One Way Bearing being destroyed. Aka metal noises from the bearing falling apart. Of course, after the cost of $800 to take it to a shop plus $200 in gas, trailer rental etc to take it in and back (it was a friends shop that was a bit of ad istance) I was quite ticked and pushed the UTV back into my garage and left it for a while. Then this past weekend i watched a bunch of Youtube videos along with a mechanic friend to pull things apart. We found the spindle was loose, opened it up further and found the one way bearing fell apart in my hand and the little bearings were already worn, no longer round and this was from less than a hour of use. THerefore leading me to believe it had very quick failure after the new wet clutch was put in. We looked things to look for damage further. Nothing really scratched/grooves etc so I ordered a new OEM bearing and we put it in, sealed it back up, followed the specs of everything and was 110% sure we put the One Way Bearing in correctly. We rode it around for a hour, sounded fine. Next day used it, sounded fine for a half hour. Third day I turned it on and let it idle a little bit and found that I was hearing metal scraping again like I did right after getting my utv back from the shop. Therefore I am 99% certain the One Way Bearing is about to break again (already breaking) Its a brand new OEM belt. Nothing looks off on the spindle. I do not know for sure if the shop touched the inner race for which, in my understanding, the One Way Bearing spins. I know I may be sounding ignorant here. I am not a mechanic by any means but I have learned a bit with the recent Youtube videos and attempted repairs. Whatever that "ufo" looking object is, we replaced the bearings (those black things that spin) I replaced the whole "Ufo" lol... as the original had some wear/tear that prevented it from spinning perfect. Nothing currently
visibly looks off... and the issue is mostly when the machine is more in an idle. It was at an idle when the One Way Bearing sorta went kaput the last time. THe noises is at an idle... but if I can get it drive, its fine. It also affects the ability to shift the gears.
I know I will have to replace the One Way Bearing again... I just dont know what might cause the issue that is destroying the bearinga nd so quickly. Again, this all started when the belt snapped when I was going about 15 mph down a road on a warm day. It has higher miles. The wet clutch was in bad shape and its replaced. The paperwork says "wet clutch assembly kit") Is there something that the belt can do to cause damage that might not be as visible but would directly create an issue that lets the bearing get ate right up?? Help me! I hate this machine and I really want it to run well ... so I can sell it and find something else haha..
My starter turns over (spins) but does not crank the engine over. I see the engine has a one way starter bearing similar to the one way clutch bearing. I believe my one way starter bearing needs replaced.
Does anyone have instructions (Steps) on how to replace the one way starter bearing on a HiSUN HS500?

I have a 2018 cub cadet challenger 750 I bought brand new almost 2 years ago the first month I had it the exhaust broke and burnt the spark plug wire in two that was a recall so the dealership installed the new one it had a different design and it bolted up to the bottom two plugs below the spark plug the dealership said they had to Adjust the exhaust valves I get the machine back thanking everything is good now wrong not even a week after I get it back the timing chain tensioner comes apart inside the motor I take it back to the dealership They put one on I get the machine back thanking everything is good but then just like before not even a week goes by when I was riding the Machine automatically quits going come to find out the wet clutch was burned up the primary clutch head stripped off of the splines I get that fixed and then it overheats I take it back they bleed the air out of the coolant they bring it back to me the same day that I get it back it overheats again I take it back they temporarily fix it again just enough to let the warranty run out and now the machine has been to multiple different mechanics I have had them try to bleed the air out they have stood it up on its end I have had the water pump changed I have had the fan hooked to a switch so I could leave it on all the time but still almost 2 years later not even 200 hours on the machine and I cannot ride it The dealership will not take it back as a lemon I have tried I am at my wits end I have no clue what to try next
I was wondering if anyone has plated one of these machines in any state. I'm in FL and am going to try to plate my T-Boss 550x Golf. Talked to a State Trooper who said it's absolutely plateable the way it sits and also talked to my insurance company and they said the same. I'm not sure what they will consider this type of machine, a golf cart or low speed vehicle. Their are different stipulations for both. I'll keep this thread updated once I get an inspection.
