    UTV Survey

    Hello UTV enthusiasts, I am a student at Villanova University and am doing a market research project on UTVs. If people would mind filling out this survey, I would greatly appreciate it. https://villanova.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8k17pLvfnFaLXz7 Thank you

    Head swap 500/700?

    Figure could get some more power from the bigger 700 piston

    Head swap 500/700?

    Stupid question but just wandering, why do you want to swap the head and piston? you can only get a new (OEM) piston with a piston kit for the 500 and 700. http://sportsmancountry.com/Massimo_Parts/CRANKSHAFT_PISTON_MSU500/ http://sportsmancountry.com/Massimo_Parts/CRANKSHAFT_PISTON_MSU_700/ the piston kits are the exact same part numbers, so i assume they are interchangeable. here is the OEM cam http://sportsmancountry.com/Massimo_Parts/CAMSHAFT_CHAIN_MASSIMO/

    FX PRO EPS LE Side curtans

    Well I downloaded the install instructions for the doors and it is clear that the doors do not need the complete soft top to work on the FX PRO EPS LE. The windshield does make a difference because of hinge mounting and the mounting of the windshield support brackets. I am rolling the dice and ordered the door along with the other options for my new Mule. I will keep everyone posted on the outcome including pictures.

    Head swap 500/700?

    Would I be able to get a 700 head and piston to replace my 500? Or is it not that simple . Probably need a cam too? Anyone have info or ideas. Also remember reading somewhere about wiseco 11:1 pistons being compatible

    '98 Mule 2510 nightmare

    Its the way some engines react when timing is advanced too far. And if valves were out of time the engine wouldnt run. It runs pretty good with the "rich" condition it has with choke partially closed.

    '98 Mule 2510 nightmare

    What do you mean by "kick" is it like a backfire? I wonder if valves could be out of time?

    '98 Mule 2510 nightmare

    So, this unit comes in for hard to start, wont idle, and have to throttle and choke it to keep it running. Of course higher RPMs make shifting into gear awful. It has the FD620D engine, 808 hrs, ranch vehicle but not abused. I rebuilt the carb, (the right way with dip soak and all the brass), replaced plugs, fuel filter, checked fuel flow from pump, dumped tank and put in fresh gas. It runs some better, but still wont idle or midrange without 1/2-3/4 choke. Very lean, but flowing good amount of fuel through main jets. I've checked for vacuum leak(s), and none found. I have checked coils for proper resistance and found slightly above spec readings across primary terminals but secondary ok. My query is, can the igniter box go out of "calibration" and change the timing on the coils and cause an advanced condition? The engine does "kick" once in a while when starting it. This could also cause the engine to seem to run lean. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I prefer that it be the "box" to change rather than the space-locked rear coil! What the hell were they thinking?! Thanks in advance . Dan

    Simple oil change... NOT !!!

    Alright! Glad you got it figured out!
  14. Hi All, New to the Forum but not new to Mules. I am upgrading from Mule 610 to a FX PRO EPS LE. (2016 new old stock). Added the Kawasaki full windshield, winch and plow. I really want to add the soft doors as shown in the attached picture, direct from Kawasaki accessory website. Has anyone seen these doors installed on a PRO FX with the hard top? The notes in the item description says they only work with the full windshield and the full soft enclosure. The dealer agrees with me and believes they will work fine but isn't willing to commit. (take them back if there is a problem we can't see) Any words of wisdom would be great. Many thanks, Bob

    Simple oil change... NOT !!!

    Thank you also Vaughn. Late yesterday afternoon I received the CFMOTO CF188-011300 that I had ordered and I put a paper towel under the old filter, removed it, cleaned the seating area and put a light coat of oil on the new CFMOTO filter gasket and installed it. NO LEAKS ! The gasket is very different from the FRAM. A side view of the FRAM gasket would look like a small hard (firm) square. A side view of the Chinese filter would look like a wider soft oval. Since the CFMOTO is not easily available locally for me, I downloaded the cross-reference list than Vaughn provided for future reference. It would be interesting to have a list of filters that are common to fail for this application. I would add the FRAM PH4967 to that list. Sadly, the FRAM PH4967 is listed on the cross-reference that Vaughn provided (no negativity to Vaughn intended). I'm sure the PH4967 is also on some other cross-reference list because I got that number from somewhere.

    That sounds like it might be a good idea on an air cooled engine. But I don't know if that would work. If you could fit one of those kits that relocate the oil filter. That might give better flow. I'd carefully document the engine temperature before doing anything. That way you'll know how well it works.

    Travis' Mule 550

    I was going to order the shim from KPH, but they dont keep them in stock, so they would have to order it from Kawasaki, then when it arrives at their location (Michigan) they ship it to me. that would take 2-3 weeks. then a rare occasion happened, I had a thought. Pro Powersports here in Conroe is a Kawasaki dealer, so they are going to special order the part for me, and can have it here within 10 days.

    Just heard back from dealer, says Massimo won't cover warranty due to mud or water in side. Where should I look to buy parts

    2003 kawasaki 550 mule

    Hi I have 01 550, those plugs are for oil pressure gauges. I have not heard of anyone putting a cooler on it. Does it make any sounds like clicking when trying to start? I'm not saying that i couldn't be done though. If you need any parts go to kawasakipartshouse.com I have a repair manual with several trouble shooting pages, if you like i can send some screens shots of them to you.
  24. Recently given a 2003 Kawasaki 550 mule. The previous owner was done with and said it would never run again. I have rebuilt the wiring harness and solved the not running issue. ? have any of you tried adding an engine oil cooler to this machine. There are 2 threaded plugs on the filter housing I was wondering if I can tap oil cooler into them.

    Side Doors for the SV1100

    We are opening a new shop called Tehachapi Fabrication We will be working on off road vehicles and custom fabrications. Engine builds for the utv"s and suspension's. We have been in this business for years but not officially. We have built custom buggies rock crawlers performance trucks, almost anything off road.

  26. The Kawasaki Teryx has long been a favorite for UTV fans who want a vehicle that can take a beating and still perform on the trails or on the ranch. But UTVs can always be better and we’ve found a few Kawasaki Teryx accessories that are sure to come in handy for any Teryx owner. 4-Pack Grab Handle Grips Originally designed for Jeep owners, the E-cowlboy grab handles seem like a logical fit for UTV owners. While the Teryx does come with passenger grab handles installed, the E-cowlboy grab handles can be placed anywhere and moved easily, so passengers of all sizes can find a comfortable place to hold on when you hit the trails. You can pick up a pack of four E-cowlboy grab handles for just $11, making these the cheapest useful Kawasaki Teryx accessories we’ve seen. Learn more here. Hitch draw bar When you need to get some work done and you have to take advantage of the towing capacity of the Teryx, one of the most useful Kawasaki Teryx accessories is this Hitch Draw Bar, made by Kawasaki (part# TX750-015). This is a heavy duty 2″ steel Hitch Draw Bar with welded gusset. It comes standard with a hitch pin and clip. You can pick one up for about $37. Learn more here. Read more

    Rear Diff

    Correct, Commando always locked. I do drive on pavement some from cabin to the BLM land but take it very easy when turning. I will drain fluid and check the Diff fluid for metal. I completely forgot about the CV jt could be the culprit and a WHOLE lot cheaper if they are available for my machine.

    Thank you Travis, I will order one of the WIX filters when I find the right one for my UTV. Would you please post a pointer to the cross-reference chart you are using? In the mean time I have ordered a "CFMOTO" CF188-011300 on line to see if that works.
