my hisun 400 has ben leaking oil out of a small metal tube on the bottom near the oil filter. Got the side by side given to me after been sitting for a couple years  but 2 quarts in nothing happened my buddy went and worked on it and put another quart in it. i thought it just pushed out what it didn't need. but its dry as a bone inside. does have a good clatter coming from the top end as well, with oil in it. looking for some help not much on the internet about these things.

Hey Trevor,

Do you have a picture so we can try to help figure out what it is?

Don't run it low on oil, it only holds like 2.5L so 2 low is more or less empty. Running it empty of oil may cause it to self destruct rapidly, which may explain the rattle.

Mine is doing the same thing! Why isn't their any info for these things online? Same story with me. Bought it for cheap from a family member that couldn't get it running. I got it running but oil was very low. I added oil and it leaks from a tube on the bottom of the engine near the filter.

I took a picture of it but I can't figure out how to post it here. I'm currently not home to take another one but it is dripping out of a steel nipple that points straight down near the oil filter under the driver's seat. It just drips slowly and after sitting for about three weeks in my barn it looks like at least a quart has dripped out.

there's a nipple under the oil filter that is the water pump weep hole. It shouldn't have oil coming out, you may get a tiny bit of coolant from time to time if the water pump seal is weeping. if theres a flow the water pump seal has failed and you'll need a new water pump.

      It's not immediately obvious to me how to wire a remote control (wired or wireless) on the Sector E1.
      Has anyone here done this? Do you have pictures on how to get to the wiring?
      Thanks!

      Can anyone tell me how they grease the drivelines ?  Can’t grease the u joints. Do you need to take the driveline off ? 
      And are they easy to take off?
      Thanks

      Hi, all! I. I'm new to the board, hoping someone could help me out! I have a 2020 Hisun Sector 550C that I bought new in 2021. Today, I took some stuff next door to my parents. When I went to leave, I turned on the key, heard the solenoid click, but no lights, no guage activity, no fuel pump, and no starter. 
       
      The battery is good, I checked all the fuses, they are good. Not sure if the relays are good, or even what to look for there. Is it possible that it's maybe a wire? 
      I'm really stumped on this one! Any help would be deeply appreciated! Attached is a pic of the fuse box layout. 
       
      Thanks!

      I picked up this Hisun 700cc for a good deal. no crank no start unit 1900 miles on it. Put a new battery and starter solenoid fired right up but sounded rough some kind of rattle/clunk noise.  Does anyone know what this noise could be? Couldn't get a better video of it running as i don't want to risk doing more damage. Drained the oil it looks good no metal in it.

      Have a Hisun 800 it runs for about 35 minutes then stalls. Crank's over but has no spark. Let it sit for 15 to 20 minutes and it starts and runs again for about 35 minutes. Changed the CDI / ECU controller and still does it.
