OK, here's the mystery of the day. I was using the UTV the other day and the idiot light came on that said it was overheating. I immediately shut down and checked the coolant. No coolant! I refilled the overflow reservoir and the radiator and all was fine. 2 days later the light is on again. I rechecked the radiator and it was again empty? Bone dry? Now, here's the weird part, There is no coolant anywhere on the floor below the vehicle. I can't even see any on the frame. I have it up on the lift and am getting ready to start tearing into the bottom "skid plate" to see if the leak is in the hoses there. Any suggestions as to where to start? I have yet to begin and I am already baffled!

Does the UT500 need greasing? Where can I find the fittings? Thanks.
I got myself into a project with an MSU500 that I got after a dealership had done a teardown on part of the engine. The previous owner had been riding and it died. i was told the dealer said that whatever was wrong couldn't be fixed, parts not available. A bolt for the Starter Clutch had loosened and vibrated out destroying the Stator and shearing the Woodruff key. I have replaced all of that and put the motor back together. My problem now is I'm a Carb. guy never touched an EFI machine and I am getting no gas to the motor. I have confirmed that there is No gas getting to the cylinder, it fires with starting fluid. The fuel pump is working, i have pressure to the Injector and power to the Black and White lead on the Injector and the same on the Red and white lead to the ECM/ECU. I have been reading and trying to understand some of the troubleshooting steps that I've found. I also have done the test with the Injector pulled out and put in a container and tried, not even a drop of fuel comes out. I have also tried with a New Injector installed with the same results.
I know this is not a Simple system but any input, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
On a side note: This probably needs a new topic. but while i'm and this will sound foolish but.
Does anyone know where the Fuse Box is on a 2016 MSU500?? Believe me I've gone thru everything Under the hood. It is not in with or near the battery box as one manual says. Not one the firewall, inside out under the hood. I have spent hours working on both sides of the motor and Under it and I've not found it there. And after looking up a New Part for this I can't even find what are shown to be the correct Leads from the wiring harness to Plug into the unit.
I thank you All in advance for any suggestions or info that you might be able and willing to provide,
Pretty new to the whole UTV thing and my outfitter 550 has around 35 hours so I figured it’s time to do an oil/filter change and grease the zerks….but then was wondering if I should also drain and replace the front/rear differential fluids? I don’t see anything in the outfitter manual mentioning differentials and I can’t find any videos or instructions online if this is something I should be doing and if so at what intervals? If anyone has any videos showing where to even find the differentials on this name/model I’d be greatly appreciative.
I have a 2011 hisun 800 utv. does anyone have the correct part # for the oil filter. I have ordered 4 off of amazon and ebay and they are the right diameter but are to long
