Is fixing a UTV possible for an inexperienced person?

Recommended Posts

Hi! I’ve never owned one before. I saw a decently good offer though for one online. It’s taken apart partially, has an engine that isn’t seized but isn’t working, and apparently has all the parts. It’s a 2006 supermach 700. I’ve never really worked on cars or anything similar, but this seems like an interesting project. Does this seem possible for someone in my position to get this thing running? Even in a more broad sense, how likely is it I can figure out how to fix mechanical issues in different Utvs when they arise? Any advice of helpful information on this?

If you're motivated it's doable., but you will likely spend a lot of time frustrated and may give up.

If you want to learn to turn a wrench you are better off starting simple with things that are easier to do, to build skills, knowledge, and confidence.

Sometimes these things seen pretty simple but can be a lot of work. Troubleshooting a motor that may have multiple issues is likely to be tough for someone with no experience, and the documentation on some of these machines is lacking to say the least.

      I’m getting a 700-7 every startup. I’m having to change the plug every 100 miles on 93 octane gas. I got a lower numbered plug that is supposed to burn hotter. I’m wondering why that comes up every time I start it and if it’s related? I included a picture of the code or whatever it is. I haven’t seen the code in the owners manual or the hisun shop manual I have.

      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!!!!

      I've had a battery failure and need one replacement.  The local distributor told me it might take up to four weeks to get one.  I'd like to order one in sooner than that if possible.  Any help would be appreciated.
